Revlon Bold Lacquer Mascara – Full Size!, value: $7.99
$1 off coupon for Revlon Bold Lacquer Mascara
This mascara has been in so many subscription boxes this summer! I can always use more mascaras, so I was glad to see this in my box.
H2O + Bath Aquatics Shampoo – 1.25 fl oz, value: $2.35
Body Drench Candy Licious Lips in Cotton Candy – .09 oz (full size), value: 3.99
Cotton Candy isn’t really a flavor/scent I use, so this lip balm will get passed along! (I estimated the value of the shampoo based off of the full-size price on H2O+’s website, which is $16, not $10 as listed on the informational card.)
HASK Argan Oil Intense Deep Conditioning Hair Treatment – 1.75 oz, value: $2.49
Nicka K New York Nail Color in Ripe Apple – full-size, value: $4.99
I’m generally a big fan of argan oil products, so I’m looking forward to trying this hair treatment. This brand of polish is new to me, but it’s formaldehyde-free and I like the brush, so I’m going to keep it!
The Verdict: I liked this month’s Beauty Box 5 box. I know I found a couple new brands and products that I haven’t tried before, and that’s my favorite part of subscription boxes! I’m going to use most of the items, so that’s a win for me. The value this month comes to about $22, which I think is a really nice deal for a $12 box ($8.25 with annual subscription).
What are your thoughts on this box? Have you tried the mascara, or other items here before?
