(Soothing Refiner & Cleanser, Replenishing Scrub, Comforting Mask, Soothing Cream)
$28 for 2 fl oz, $28 for 1.7 fl oz, $38 for 1.7 fl oz, $65 for 1.7 fl oz
BB5: 0.68 total oz ($15.48 value)
While I like that there are four different samples, each pouch is only good for maybe two uses. For skincare, I like to try something for at least several days so there's time for actual results. The Soothing Refiner & Cleanser is a clear gel, and it did a nice job when I washed my face with it--not too drying, but definitely got my face clean. It did smell slightly too perfume-y. The Replenishing Scrub is a white cream texture with very coarse exfoliants. A little too gritty in my opinion. The other two items were alright, but not typically products that I would use with my oily/acne prone skin.
Nicka K New York Nail Color in Lavender
$4.99 for 0.5 fl oz
BB5: full-size ($4.99 value)
This is my favorite product in this month's box! I was pleasantly surprised by how well this polish covered in two coats! Pastel polish is frequently streaky, but this one is FABULOUS, and less than five bucks (which is more than I can say about a certain $10 bottle of seafoam green polish that I tried recently...). The packaging is nice looking and sturdy, and the polish has pretty good length of wear.
Organix Coconut Water Shampoo & Conditioner
$7.99 for 13 oz
BB5: 0.5 oz ($0.31 value)
I have a LOT of hair, and with this particular shampoo and conditioner, I felt like I needed almost the entire pouch for just one use because the formula was a little more dilute than I prefer. It smells really nice--not like fake coconut, not too strong--just pleasant and like real, fresh coconut. It's also nice that it's sulfate-free.
$28.00 for 0.25 oz
BB5: 0.124 oz ($14.00 value)
The good news: this is a natural formula and it doesn't clump. The bad newsL: the formula is WAY too wet--I ended up with raccoon eyes because it just got everywhere, and I don't usually have that problem with mascara. The brush is just your typical mascara spoolie.
$7.95 for 12 oz
BB5: 2 oz ($1.33 value)
This smells like sugary deliciousness. LOVE it. It gets me nice and clean, and there's a bit of lather too. The sample has enough to last several showers, and the packaging is cute and simple.
