July Beauty Army Box

Good Afternoon :)

Today I finally received my July Beauty Army Box , it shipped right before the holiday, so it took a little extra time, and I definitely was impatient. This is my second box from Beauty Army, and so far this has become my favorite monthly subscription service. With Beauty Army you can select which samples you want before they send them, you always get six samples, and they come in an easy to reuse box. If you would like to know more please check out my post about Monthly Subscription Services here.

What I chose for my July Beauty Army Box Samples:

Freeman Beauty Vita-K Professional Age Spots  3oz.

First off, I do not have any age spots, and I am not completely sure why I selected this as a sample. After researching a bit on the website I did find out this also will help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and has anti-aging peptides. So, I am pretty much going to be using this to prevent what could come in the future.

Directions: For best results use twice daily on clean, dry skin. Apply a generous amount on desired area until thoroughly absorbed. Use 4-6 weeks continuously for optimum benefits. Results may vary depending on your skin type and condition.

Key Ingredients:
Pro Vita-K Complex™ - combines the remarkable proven benefits of Vitamin K with a unique Amino Acid/Polypeptide Complex proven to significantly improve tone and elasticity, and dramatically reduces the appearance of problem skin conditions with the first application.
Matrixyl® 3000 – consists of a combination of two pentapeptides; Palmitoyl Oligopeptide and Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide – 7. Known to promote collagen production while stimulating fibroblast cells in the skin, enabling them to significantly reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
