I have a confession... I have terrible, raggedy cuticles. My cuticles and nails could totally use some TLC and some nail oil, but I'm too lazy to go out and buy it, so it was nice to see this in this month's box. This has a pleasant but faint sweet orange smell to it, and it doesn't feel heavy. Weird thing though: the plastic bristles on the brush were stuck together.
Retail: $6.99 for 21 fl oz
BB5 size: 1 oz ($0.33 value)
It's a good basic moisturizer that smells like your basic moisturizer. Convenient for travel or your gym bag.
Retail: $5.00 for one pair
BB5 size: one pair ($5.00 value)
While these are cute, and I could use a little more exfoliation, these felt just a little scratchy to me, and I've already snagged them on things :(
Retail: $3.39 for a standard size lip balm tube
BB5 size: full-sized ($3.99 value)
This has a nice, REAL coconut scent to it. I love that it's organic, gluten-free, petroleum-free, non-GMO and not tested on animals. As with many lip balms, if I wait until my lips are already dry, this lip balm can't save them. But if I apply this before my lips are chapped, it does a good job keeping them moisturized. Since
I tend to lose lip balms constantly, it's a nice addition to this month's box (you can never have too many lip products, am I right?)
Retail $17.00 for 12.5 fl oz
BB5 size: 1 oz ($1.36 value)
This "unisex" scented body wash has algae, aloe and vitamin E, and has a refreshing herbal scent to it... almost a bit like menthol? It definitely makes getting clean more of a spa-like experience.
"That Awkward Moment" is a movie with Zac Efron that will be coming out at the end of this month. While I like that it's compact (it's about this size of a business card and thin), it's not particularly cute or high quality.
