Boy oh boy am I excited about THIS beauty box! The February BB5 was arrived later than usual because of its unusually heavy weight…hmmm and what was it you ask? Nothing short of an all together fantabulous BB5! I had no idea that they had been around for one year (same time as Glossybox), but I do remember a bit of a lackluster start with a foil packets being passed off as actual samples. My my how things have changed! And in keeping in theme with BB5’s colour scheme, everything in February’s box is blue blue blue!
Thoughts: What a cute looking sample! This smells very refreshing and reminds me of nature.
Full size: 8.5 fl oz/$14.00
I received: 1.25 fl oz/$2.06
Thoughts: Here is the culprit that made the boxes late! I signed up for BB5 after Tree Hut was introduced into the boxes and have been wondering when I would get a chance to sample some awesome Tree Hutness! This body scrub smells overwhelmingly more like coconut than lime which is unfortunate, but it is such a fun colour that I can get over it.
Full size: 18oz/$7.49
I received: 5.5oz/$2.29
Thoughts: I have actually been using Brush Guards for about 2 years, but I can always use more! They are a great little invention and I love that I can dry my brushes standing up so that water doesn’t flow back into the ferrule.
Full size: 4 pack/$5.50
I received: 3 pack/$4.13
Thoughts: This product intrigues me as you have to wait at least 2 days between applications (eeek!) and makes me wonder what it is actually doing to my hair! You need at least 2 –3 teaspoons per application which is quite a lot, so this 30mL sample will be done in about 2 weeks!
Full size: 8oz/$39.95
I received: 1 oz/$4.99
Such a cute little birthday bonus! My brush portion is a little wonky, but definitely still usable!
Total Value of February BB5: $13.47
I’m very pleased with what I received and have consistently been happy with every box that I have received since my very first one in August of last year. There is no fancy packaging like Glossybox, just good products!
