Beauty Box 5: December 2013

IMG_5437F_zpsb7a51b6c

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.

beauty box 5 oct 2013

I really love the Beauty Box 5, its a great collection of beauty items that I can use every day.

 

2013 October’s box samples:

 

  • Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion (retail $6.99) – I love Aveeno skin care, this sample is the perfect fit for my handbag and keeping my hands soft and hydrated in the cooler weather.

  • Nubar Alter Ego Nail Polish (retail price – $5.00) -I love this polish! The base color is clear so the glitter is beautiful but subtle. I love how it looked and how quick it dried.
  • La Fresh travel lite Facial Cleansing Wipes (retail $19.99 48 count) – I really love these facial wipes. They work great removing makeup or left my skin feeling clean and fresh without any residue.
  • Model Co Illusion Lip Pencil (retail $20 FULL SIZE) – A great lip liner, the pencil is really creamy and easy to apply. The nude color is a great base for dark red, berry lip looks.
  • Glitter Toe Spacers ($2.00 FULL SIZE)

BB5 Nov review 2013

 

2013 November’s box samples:

  • Secret’s Clinical Strength Deodorant ($7.99). This formula is the  “completely clean” scent and is an invisible solid. I like that it doesn’t leave marks on any of my clothes and keeps me smelling fresh and clean even after working out.
  • Montagne Jeunesse Glacial Clay Spa Mask ($2.49). I love a good face mask and was excited to try this one as its  clay infused sheet mask.  My skin felt so soft and smooth after using it. This would make a great stocking stuffer!

  • BellaPiere Cosmetics Shimmer Powder ($14).I have a hard time with loose powders but found this actually pretty easy to use. It stuck to my shadow brush during application and I was able to apply without making a mess. The color is really pigmented and lasted all day.
  • Aveeno Calming Body Wash (sample size) I love the lavender and chamomile scent and I like how it cleans and leaves my skin really soft. I will definitely be buying more of this!
  • Body Drench Lip Drench Eucalyptus Moisturizing Lip Balm ($4.99).  I love anything  eucalyptus or peppermint and this lip balm is my new fave. It feels great on my lips and has really helped keep them from getting chapped in the cold.

In each Beauty Box 5 you will find list of the samples, the full size price, description and product’s website. I am really enjoying Beauty Box 5 so far! The sizes are really awesome as well! For $12, you can’t beat it!

Introducing Beauty Box 5!

beauty-box-5-1

Do you subscribe to any beauty-box service like Birchbox – or Beauty Box 5? I’ve received a couple Birchbox’s over the year, and I like them…. for the most part. I find myself using half the samples – or so. I find the products that Birchbox sends to be on the higher-end which is great – unless I really LOVE the sample I’ve tried, and then I can’t afford to buy the full size. That’s annoying.

Beauty Box 5 is a bit different. You get 5 products each month (for $12 a month) and the products tend to be much more affordable. For a person like me, this is much more beneficial, because if I fall in love with the product, then I’ll be able to go out and buy it myself!

Here is a sneak peak at what a Beauty Box might look like. Products I received are:

1. Full sized Be a Bombshell Eyeshadow in ‘bora bora’ – $14

2. Sample Sized Heavenly Silk Nourishing Moisturizer – $4.00 (for full size)

3. Sample sized Nubar nail polish in ‘Faded Jeans’ – $7.49 (for full size)

4. h20 Micro-Collagen Moisturizer – $50.00 (for full size)

5. Pink nail file – full size

You can choose from two subscription options. Either $12 a month for month-to-month, or $30 for 3 months.
