It came in a lovely turquoise box with the BB5 logo.

|Pur-lisse face wash|
From the website listing - "Give your skin a fresh start every day with pūr~delicate from pūr~lisse. Their special blend of soy milk, soy proteins, white tea and whole oat leaves your skin caressably smooth without removing natural oils. pūr~delicate will soothe your skin, not irritate it. Soap-free and non-foaming, pūr~delicate is strong enough to remove dirt and makeup, yet gentle enough to preserve and enhance your skin's natural beauty. Bring home pure cleansing power with pūr~delicate". The full size is $36 for 5.6 fl. oz., I received a 1.7 oz (or 50 ml) sample.
This is a good sized sample and is great for travel. It has a light scent and a milky consistency. I will definitely use this product as I use scrubs a few times a week but like a more gentle cleanser the rest of the time.
|Welda Day and Night Cream|
(Night cream) - "Use after your P.M. cleansing and sleep soundly, knowing that the Iris Hydrating Night Cream is soothing, repairing and hydrating your skin while you dream. Wake up to supple and strong skin thanks to nutrient rich ingredients.".
The full size for both day and night cream is 1 oz; the day cream retails for $20 and the night cream $21. I received a 0.17 fl. oz (or 5 ml) sample of each.
This is actually a really nice cream with a floral-esq scent. If you don't like your creams to be too scented, you may not like this, but I do like the smell. It is made in Germany, and some European creams I remember trying in the past have this sort of scent. This is actually a reasonably priced cream as well (I hate when I fall in love with a face cream and then find out the price tag - ack!) It's happened to me more than once for sure!
|Lavera eye pencil|
|Priti NYC Nail Polish Remover wipe|
I've actually heard other bloggers say really good things about these wipes - that one wipe can do all 10 nails and even then some. It is still a pricey item though, and it would have been nice to receive a couple of these in the box. I do my nails all the time so this will definitely get used.
Last, there was a bonus item included - Comodynes self-tanning towelette.
I can try this out - I haven't really used self-tanners all that much, but what I'm unsure of is if one towelette can be used on your whole body. I just hope I have enough in this one sample - so I don't end up with half my body tan and the other half pale!
Overall, I quite liked this box. When I saw other unboxings I didn't think I would like the products all that much; but upon getting the box and trying some of them out, I'm actually quite happy with it. I do like how these are all new-to-me brands as that's how I find out about new favorite products. I also like how the box as a whole is packaged as well (cuts down on waste). So far so good for BB5 - I am excited for next month's! Hopefully it will ship sooner though!
