Briogeo Don’t Despair Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask – 1 oz – Value $9
This mask is free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates – and it is safe for color treated hair!
There are two ways to use this mask – let it sit on your hair for 5-10 minutes after massaging it into your roots, then rinse out. Or for deeper hydration, cover your hair in a plastic shower cap and sit under a dryer, applying direct heat for 30 minutes, then rinse.
I tried the 5-10 minute version, and I could definitely feel a difference in the softness of my hair after using it. I’m still trying to figure out the right ratio of this mask to my hair. (One time I overdid it and had oily hair, and the other time I didn’t use enough and couldn’t really feel a difference!)
Manna Kadar Lip Locked Lip Stain in Shae – .052 oz Value $1
This liquid lip has great pigment and good shine, too. I wish it had a better flavor/scent, though. (Swatched in lower photo.)
PEONY Shadow Trio in Gilded – FULL SIZE! Value $17.95
This little eyeshadow trio is so cute!
The shades are all shimmery, with the two outer shades having the most sparkle:
I was very impressed with the pigment in these shades. Here they are swatched beneath the Manna Kadar Lip Locked:
Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes – (7 count) Value $1.25
These are always a useful essential I’m happy to receive in a beauty box!
BB5 Cut That Crease Brush – Value $10
I believe this is the first time Beauty Box 5 (BB5) has included their own branded item, and I like it! (I’m all about getting makeup brushes in boxes, I can’t remember the last time I actually bought a brush!)
Verdict: This month’s Beauty Box 5 has a value of about $39! I think that’s great for a $12 box! And everything in this box is super usable for me, too.
