The May BeautyBox5 showed up quickly after I received the shipping information. BB5 has made a ton of improvements over the last year, shipping being one of them. I have continually been impressed.

The theme for May is “Make May Your Bae” and the box is full of things to prep you for a Summer Date Night.

First look!

Cougar Beauty 24 Hour Liquid Lipstick in Rioja - Full Size ($12.99 US)
You can never have too many liquid lipsticks, babe! This long-lasting formula will remain flawlessly in place throughout the warmest summer night. Pair with winged liner, a soft cheek, and your favourite little black dress!

I received a shade perfect for all seasons. It goes on smooth and has excellent staying power.
Jersey Shore Cosmetics Mongongo Lip Conditioner in Vanilla Coconut Cream ($10 US)
This organic balm is all-natural, packed with nutrients, and smells like coconut — perfect to throw in your beach bag!

This lip balm smells delicious. I always have room in my purse for another one.

Jelly Pong Pong Bare Necessities Highlighting Pencil ($12 US)
Use this versatile peachy pencil as an eyeshadow base, highlighter, and concealer! It’s hypoallergenic and paraben free, too.

I love highlighter and this pencil glides on well to illuminate inner and outer corners, your cupid’s arrow or your waterline.

Daily Concepts Exfoliating Body Scrubber ($5 US) 
Hello, vacay skin! Buff away roughness and cleanse deeply with this dual-texture scrubber that works for all skin types– even sensitive! The smart label will fade when it’s time to replace.
Perfect timing to receive this as I was looking to replace my current scrubber. This scrubber will work well on my sensitive skin.

Nanacoco Jumbo Eye & Lip Pencil in Lime Festival ($5.50 US)
Switch up your style with bright pigments that can be applied to the eyes and lips!

I don’t think this colour would be appropriate to wear on my lips, but that’s just me. I also would not sport this on my eyes. It is a gorgeous green and might look great on someone with an olive complexion or brown eyes.

Repair any summer-skin woes with a mini bonus Arnica Salve from De La Cruz!
I’m impressed with this bonus sample as BB5 is already a very affordable subscription. I don’t think I’ll need this for Summer, but will keep it on hand for the Winter.

The May Beauty Box 5 included five items and a bonus sample, valued at $45.50 US. The value is lower than usual again this month, but I am going to use all of the products with the exception of the lime Nanacoco liner.
