Purlisse Pur Protect SPF 30 ($55): Value $16.18 So I actually received the full-size of this in my FabFitFun box and I would never spend that kind of money on sunscreen because I have a brand I fell in love with that works and is much cheaper but I do like that I got the travel size option because I can throw it in my travel/beach/overnight bag without it taking up much room. This is the perfect sized sunscreen to bring with me on my Disney weekend and i’m glad I don’t have to buy any!

La Fresh Travel Lite Makeup Remover Wipes ($19.99): Value $0.42 This is an item i’m not overly excited about only because I use the Simple make-up remover wipes and I know they don’t irritate my skin and they do a good job! I do like the travel size sample though and love that I can toss this in my travel or overnight bag without having to lug around a big package or put them in a ziploc hoping they don’t dry out. I will definitely be bringing these with me on my Disney weekend!

Nanacoco Lip Gloss in Popular ($3.99): Value $3.99  Words can not describe how much I love lip gloss..i’d be perfectly happy receiving one in every box! This one is no exception, as it smells SO good, and puts a nice color on my lips. The card does say that there isn’t stickiness but I think I disagree slightly BUT it wouldn’t deter me from using it. ❤ it

Novex Brazilian Keratin ($19.50): Value $0.64 I have so many hair treatments right now! This intensive hair treatment works on all hair types, i’ve never heard of this brand before but i’m interested to see what it does for my hair. You’re supposed to use this after shampooing and wait 25 minutes…hmm a bubble bath sounds in order! 😉 I think I can actually get a good two uses out of this.

Style Essentials Nail Polish ($7.00): Value $7.00 I love nailpolish…seriously. I’m actually in the middle of a DIY project for a nail polish holder and super excited to use it with all my new awesome polish! This is a fun addition to my collection and I will definitely get some use out of this. I’m not sure how hard it is to get off my nails though, so i’ll have to find that out in a few days.

My retail value for this month’s box is $28.23 and I paid less than $12/box with my yearly subscription and coupon code. I am really loving the lip gloss and nail polish! I’m not overly excited on the sunscreen or the wipes because I already have products I love but these are great for tossing into a travel bag. I am interested to see what the keratin treatment does for my hair, but I have so many hair treatment products that this is going on the list to be used soon!

If you are interested in signing up for BB5, make sure to use the coupon code HALFOFFBOX to receive $6 off your sub!! Overall I think this is a nice mix for a beauty sub, and you can’t beat the price! Last month I received more full-sized products but I don’t absolutely hate any of the samples in this box either because they are a decent amount!
