Nanacoco lip gloss in "Mysterious"
full sized gloss
I like this gloss A LOT. It has a very faint vanilla scent to it, and the amount of pigmentation and shine is PERFECTION. It's a really fantastic balance that gave my lips a nice amount of translucent pink color. This gloss also felt great on my lips and left them feeling moisturized. The packaging is also nice and simple but classy looking--especially for only FOUR BUCKS!!!
pur-lisse pur-protect spf 30 sunscreen
0.5 oz sample
The pur-lisse sunscreen I received is for normal-dry skin, and I have oily skin, so it's not a perfect match. But I do like how lightweight this sunscreen is, and how quickly it absorbs into my skin. While I prefer a formula with oil control for the summer months, this is a really nice sunscreen. A little spendy but during these winter months when my skin suffers and gets dry and I occasionally need some sun protection, I'm definitely using this sample.
August's BeautyBox5 had one dud (the makeup wipes), two all stars (the lipgloss and sunscreen), and two pretty good products (the hair treatment, and the nail polish). It was a nice mix of product types and price points. Definitely got $12 worth of stuff!
