And heeerrre is October’s BB5! This was not my favourite box, but there are certainly products that peaked my interest and made me very curious about how to use them as October’s theme was “Tricks of the Trade”.
Margania Pure Argan Oil
With naturally high levels of Vitamin E and skin supporting fatty acids, this miracle oil is perfect for healing skin ailments and protecting against premature aging. Use alone or mix with your moisturizer.
Thoughts: I was most excited about this product and I also love little droppers as a way to administer product. If I had micropipettes from the lab, I swear I’d use them all the time.
Full size: 2oz/$32.00
I received: 5mL(0.17oz)/$2.72
City Lips Lip Plumper in Sin City
These luscious lip plumpers are packed with antioxidants and moisturizer ingredients! Apply alone or over lipstick for fuller, plumper lips in an instant!
Thoughts: This is another product I was excited to try! I’ve seen City Lips before, but never felt the urge to buy so this sample is perfect! I’ve tested it out and yes the tingle is definitely there, but no adverse reactions! I always worry because I reacted once to a Sally Hansen lip plumper which resulted in my upper lip being plump and red for a week straight!
Full size: 5mL/$32.00
I received: 1.5mL/$9.60
ShowStoppers Fashion Tape
Lost a button on your shirt? Does your bra strap keep showing? Keep your “fashion fashioned” with these ingenious, purse-sized packets of double stick designer fashion tape.
Thoughts: I was a little confused about what there were at first, but then I realized they might come in handy as I hate it when my bra strap keeps slipping out!
Full size: 24 strips/$9.99
I received: 2 strips/$0.83
Goat Haus Diary Lip Balm in Sugar Kisses
Thoughts: I was a bit surprised to see another product from Goat Haus since we received a soap from them last month, but that’s ok! I love lip balms and this one looks nice and soothing.
Full size: $2.50
I received: *FULL SIZE*
Relax frown lines in a gentle, natural (no needles!) way.
Thoughts: I was also confused about these too! I’m not at a stage in my life where I have frown lines, so I might have to pass these on to someone older…
Full size: 30 patches/$19.99
I received: 3 patches/$2.00
Great for maximizing curl, separating lashes and avoiding bottom last mishaps. These discrete little cards are your lashes new best friend!
Thoughts: I received this in my last Glymm bag and was not a fan of them. You can read what I wrote here.
Full size: 10 cards/$6.99
I received: 2 cards/$1.40
Total Value of BB5: $19.05
Not my favourite BB5, but I love the fact that there was a theme to the box. It’s also hard to surprise me now what with all of these samples, so being a little confused keeps things interesting! There was also yet another $100 gift certificate for a NuMe product included in the box as well. The fact that this is my fourth one doesn’t cheapen the brand at all…anyway, as always I look forward to next month’s BB5!
