December Beauty Box 5 Review

I love getting boxes every month, but December is always extra fun for me because of Christmas and because my birthday is in December. Getting my Beauty Box 5 felt like an extra special gift this month!

*Disclaimer: This box was sent to See, Shop, Love! in exchange for an honest review.

Beauty Box 5 sends five deluxe samples (and oftentimes, full-sized products) to you each month for only $12! Shipping is free to the U.S. and $3 to Canada. They always have a good variety of products, including skincare, hair care, accessories, and more!

This month's box featured four full-sized items! I think everything is great for winter. Here's what was inside:
  • Amlactin Cerapeutic Restoring Body Lotion ($2.99 for 2 oz, full-sized) - Amlactin is one of my favorite brands for really dry skin. This has a patented Ultraplex formula and ceramides that relieve dryness for up to 24 hours. It feels a little greasy at first, but once it absorbs into the skin it relieves the dry patches on my hands really well.
  • Jelly Pong Pong Liquid Gossamer ($22.95 for .27 fl oz, full-sized) - I love Jelly Pong Pong because the name is so fun to say and their packaging is always really cute. This liquid highlighter is paraben- and cruelty-free and made with 78% natural ingredients.
  • Professional Freezing Finish Spray ($3.00 for 2 oz, full-sized) - This hairspray has a strong hold and adds body and texture. It's perfectly sized for your purse or travel!
  • Neutrogena Rainbath ($.85 for 1 fl oz) - This is in the Original scent and smells clean and slightly masculine. It's made with a combination of spices, herbs, and fruits to create an interesting scent that I really like.
  • Hikari Cosmetics Lip Gloss ($13.00 for .16 oz, full-sized) - Assorted colors were sent and I received Castle, which is a warm tan. Unfortunately this is not going to look great on my skin since I already have tan skin with yellow undertones, but I've used Hikari's lip glosses before and they have great pigmentation and moisture.

Bottom Line: Aside from the Hikari lip gloss, I'm going to get good use out of all of these products. I actually really like Hikari Cosmetics, unfortunately the shade I received just didn't work for my skin tones. December's box had a total approximate retail value of  $42.79 with four full-sized products, which is an awesome deal for only $12!
