Beauty Box 5 Subscription Review – December 2013
Beauty Box 5 is a monthly beauty and makeup subscription box. Each box usually includes a mix of makeup and skincare or haircare products. Their sample sizes vary as well – but typically every box has at least one full size item!
The Subscription Box: Beauty Box 5
The Cost: $12 a month (or $10 a month with a 3-month subscription; $8.25 a month with annual subscription)
The Products: 4-5 full size and sample size beauty products.
Ships to: US and Canada
Each box comes with a card detailing the products, and most brands include exclusive coupon codes for Beauty Box 5 subscribers.
The two outer shades have a matte finish, and middle color has a nice golden subtle shimmer. I’ve been getting a lot of NYX palettes lately in boxes, but these colors and finishes are perfect for me, so no complaints about this one!
Body Drench Daily Moisturizing Lotion in Hemp – 2 oz Value $1
Sam Villa Brush Cleaner – Value $4.95
This Body Drench lotion gave me a flashback to the first ever POPSUGAR Must Have box! (I guess it was still called a bag back then). I’m not sure if I’ll use it, but I like that it’s kind of gift wrapped – perfect for a stocking stuffer.
This brush cleaner may actually end up being my favorite product in the box. At first I thought a brush for a brush sounded kind of silly, but then it cleared all the hairs out of my wet brush in one swipe, so now I love it!
Clean & Clear Morning Burst Hydrating Gel Moisturizer – .5 oz Value $1
OFRA Cosmetics Lipgloss Plumper in Sultry – FULL SIZE! Value $12.95
Verdict: I paid $10 for this month’s box, and received over $25 worth of items. I like that there were two full size makeup items this month, and who knew I’d be so excited about a brush for brushes?
