Now, onto the items!
Jelly Pong Pong Cosmetics Liquid Gossamer – FULL SIZE! Value $23
This liquid highlighter is gorgeous! It has a coppery hue, tons of shimmer, and it is super easy to blend into your skin, too. (You can also blend a little of this with your body lotion for a shimmery glow all over.)
And, extra good news, this product is free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates, too!

HIKARI Lipgloss in Merlot – FULL SIZE! Value $13
(Shade not indicated on the card, so it may vary for subscribers.)
This color is gorgeous! It has a good amount of pigment and shine, and it is not too sticky, either. (The downside for me is that this lip gloss is formulated with parabens.)
Here it is swatched above the Liquid Gossamer:
I’m loving both of the shades this month!
Amlactin Cerapeutic Restoring Body Lotion – 2 oz Value $2.40
This lotion is great for dry winter skin. A little goes a long way, and it left a slight oily feel on my skin, but it definitely did the job of hydrating my skin instantly.
Neutrogena Rainbath Shower Gel – 1 oz Value $.70
This shower gel, unfortunately, contains an ingredient I’m allergic to, (Red 40), so I couldn’t sample it, but it will be donated! (I can tell you it smells lovely, though!)
Professional Freezing Finish Spray – 2 oz Value $1
This hairspray added texture and hold – I would recommend using this for hairstyles where you want your hair to stay perfectly in place. (Not for situations where you want to run your fingers through your hair, though!)
And this box also included a $20 gift card code to Your Minerals. (This doesn’t apply to the $4.95 shipping cost, but many items are around the $20 price point, so you could get a full-sized eyeshadow for about $6.)
Verdict: This month’s Beauty Box 5 has a value of about $40! I think that’s great for a $12 box! And I think both of the makeup items this month are gorgeous, plus I’ll use just about everything else.
