March 2014 - Sneak Peek! Beauty Box 5

Beauty Box 5 has released the first sneak peek at the March 2014 box

This March we want to streamline our beauty routine.
We don’t want to sacrifice our favorite things, but we DO want to save time (and space) so that there’s more time for adventure. Meet our new all-purpose favorite, Bellapierre Cosmetics Makeup Base!
This pale, creamy base works as an eyeshadow primer, concealer, and matte highlighter than can brighten your cheek bones or under your eyes. Did we mention that it’s also paraben-free?
Maybe multi-tasking is the key to happiness after all. 

Need another reason why March going to be awesome? Because this month has serious value.
Not only do we love this Makeup Base, but our subscribers will get the full-size, but which costs $19. So let’s take a second to do the math: our box is only $12 a month, so you save $7 on this product and basically get four more products for free. Boom.

Bluum Box - February 2014

Cost: $24.95/month

Our first Bluum box is here! I had to go get it from the post office, my mailman is lazy and 9 times out of 10 he will leave the "sorry we missed you" note in my mailbox and not even attempt to walk up to the door and deliver my package (I know this because I was home at the time delivery was "attempted" according to the tracking information, and my doorbell definitely did not ring!)

Super soft and really cute!! Savannah already has a ton of stuffed animals but we'll add this to her pile.

Savannah is chewing on this rattle as I type this. I really like this rattle. 

Information from the card that was attached to it: 
"Bannor Toys are designed and handcrafted from start to finish in Des Moines, IA. We choose the best responsibly harvested woods, then finish them with an organic beeswax and flax-seed oil mixture. We create our toys with the hope of inspiring children to use their imagination while developing creativity, motor skills, and making an eco-friends product that is safe for little ones"

* No side effects;* No risk of over-medicating;* No numbing of gag reflex;* Does not mask other symptoms;* No sugar or lactose;* Preservative-free

I have read good reviews about this product and I'm super excited that we got it in our box! We live in the Midwest (Nebraska) and it seems like winter is never going to end. S gets super dry cheeks and we will definitely be using this soon! Like, tomorrow. 

"Calendula Weather Protection Cream is made to shield babies’ facial skin and lips from the harsh cold and wind during brutal winter months. With pure beeswax and gentle lanolin, it blends in easily and is ideal for babies, children and adults who have sensitive skin.

Completely water-free and long-lasting, it’s perfect for use during all types of wintertime outdoor activities and also suitable for skin that easily becomes stressed or red when exposed to cold and wind. Formulated with sweet almond oil and Biodynamic® calendula flower extract, this rich cream absorbs smoothly into delicate skin, providing maximum comfort and protection without impairing the skin’s important natural functions."

Oscillococcinum (sample - free). Includes a $1 coupon on back. This claims to reduce the duration and severity of flu-like symptoms. 

I received a total of 5 items in the box. Retail value was $36.65, and I paid $12.47. 

Savings $24.18

Everything  in the box was new to me and has piqued my interest. :P I can say that I am definitely happy with our first box and can't wait to see what next month brings. What was in your February 2014 box?
