Beauty Box 5: December 2013


Beauty Box Five is a monthly beauty subscription. Each box contains five beauty products from a wide variety of categories including makeup, skincare, and hair. Beauty Box Five costs $12 per month if you subscribe on a month-to-month basis, or you can purchase multi-month subscription for as low as $8.25 per month!

December’s box was “Naughty and Nice”, here’s what was inside:

Every Beauty Flexible Foot Smoother (full size, retail value $4.99)  It’s a flexible pumice stone that has a coarse side and then a fine side. Perfect for this time of year when you aren’t in the mood to splurge for a salon pedi but want your feet to look good.  I used this to give myself a pedicure and I love how soft my heels were after just one use.

Body Drench Daily Moisturizing Lotion (sample size 59mL/2oz, approximate value $1.06) A hemp-based body moisturizer with a cucumber fragrance. A great lightweight daily lotion I keep this in my purse to keep my skin moisturized on the go.

Clean & Clear Morning Burst Hydrating Gel Moisturizer (sample size 0.5oz, approx. value $1.17)
A lightweight cleanser great for those of us with combo or oily skin. I love how clean my skin feels after and this size is perfect for my overnight bag.

NYX Cosmetics Love In Rio Eyeshadow Palette in “Sway With Lola” (full size, 1g ea., value $6.00)
A great little eyeshadow trio, I found I did need a primer to get the best look with them but I am loving the colors.

Ofra Cosmetics Sultry Lipgloss Plumper (full size, 10ml/0.34oz, value $12.95)
A great plumper this cranberry-colored gloss applies with a bit of tingling action. I have pretty full lips but still found this gloss plumped up my lips and helped hide the look of creasing. And I love the cranberry color and the gloss has a light stain which made it really long wearing.

Total value of the box: $26.17

I like the affordability of the Beauty Box 5, there are lots of subscription services out there but in the few boxes I have reviewed I thought it had a really great sampling of products and for $12 shipped they are really affordable. While most of the brands I have heard of each box has had new items I haven’t tried before which makes this a really fun way to branch out. You can learn more about Beauty Box 5 and sign up here
