If you are like me, you probably find yourself using the same beauty and makeup products over and over again. Before you know it, you find yourself board with putting on makeup and start to dread it.  I often find myself in this situation and I realize that I have put myself in a beauty rut because I am using the same products over and over again.

There is no better way to get out of a beauty rut then to get yourself some new beauty products.  Let's face it, new products are fun, and they will snap you out of that rut in no time.  If you are a stay at home mom like I am, you may be saying to yourself, "well, that all sounds great, but I am on a strict budget, and I simply cannot afford to spend so much money on costly beauty products".  If this is you, let me just say, yes! I am right there with you!  Beauty and cosmetic products are not cheap, that is for sure, and they can easily cost $30-80 bucks a product.  And this is why I turned to Beauty Box 5 to jump start my beauty routine.

To learn more about what exactly Beauty Box 5  is and how this company will help you kiss boring makeup goodbye and give you a bunch of new products for next to nothing, please keep reading.

I found a sheet inside my box listing the products I received and how they were meant to be used which I found really helpful.

Now let's take a look at the 5 products I found in my beauty box 5:

Makeup - I received a product from a brand called So Susan.  It was their Light Diffuser.  This is a contour/highlight powder duo that smells like chocolate and coconut.  Can we save, amazing?  You use the light diffuser powder to set your cream contour.  Use the bronzer to set your dark cream contour, and use the highlight color to highlight the areas that have the light cream contour, such as the tops of your cheekbones, the tip of your nose, and between your eyes. 

Here is what the product looked like and a picture of me wearing the product:

Nail Polish - I received a beautiful dusty mauve nail polish from a company called Nanacoco Beauty.  I totally love the name of the color too - "He Is So Fine".  I cannot wait to do a new set of acrylics with this color, it will go with almost anything and is very flattering.  I had not heard of this company before I got my beauty box 5 and I am thrilled to find a new nail polish brand.  

Here is what it looked like:

Skincare - I received two skincare products in my beauty box 5.  I am obsessed with good skincare products and I was thrilled to receive two brand new skincare products to try out.  I received a soy milk cleanser from a company called Pur-Lisse, and a blemish patches from a company called Maskeraide

I used my new Pur-Lisse cleanser both before apply makeup, and when I removed my makeup.  First, I applied the cleanser to my bare skin and exfoliated over the cleanser to remove excess dirt and dead skin.  After cleaning my face with my new cleanser and exfoliator, I applied my makeup.  At the end of the day, I then used my Pur-Lisse cleanser to remove my makeup and it did a fantastic job.  I am in love with this cleanser and am so happy I found this brand.  This cleanser contains soy milk, soy proteins, whole oats, and white tea.

The anti-blemish spot patches by Maskeraide are truly a unique and innovative product.  These patches contain silicylic acid, volcanic ash, and tea tree oil in them which absorb excess oil and help to remove the blemish quickly.  I have not tried the patches yet but I am very excited to do so and since I frequently get breakouts, I know they will come in handy.  

Here is what these two products looked like:

Hair Care - If you read The Makeup Equation, you know that I am a color chameleon and as a result my hair has taken a lot of abuse over the years.  I am always using deep conditioners on my fragile ends to keep them healthy.  This is why I was thrilled to receive a conditioning hair product from a company called Novex in my Beauty Box 5.  The product I received was the Bamboo Sprout Leave In Conditioner.  This product contains bamboo sprout which nourishes the hair shaft and leaves in shiny and glossy.
