Beauty Box 5 Review – April 2015
Beauty Box 5 is a monthly beauty and makeup subscription box. It’s also one of the cheapest beauty subscription boxes – only $8.25 a month with an annual subscription. They tend to feature drugstore brands, and usually the product sizes are deluxe or sample size. (Sometimes they still send out the dreaded foil packets though).
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
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 Beauty Box 5 box comes with an informational card detailing each item in your box for that month.
Dancin’ Goat Hula Bliss Hand & Body Lotion – 2 oz Value $4.50
I really like the Dancin’ Goat brand since they use all natural ingredients, but the scent of this lotion just isn’t for me.
First Aid Beauty Facial Cleanser – 6 ml total Value $1
I really like the FAB line – their products are great for sensitive skin (no fragrance), plus they are paraben, sulfate, and phthalate free as well. This cleanser gets great reviews on Sephora too. These one-time use packets will be great for travel, so while I hate to see foil packets in boxes, these aren’t so bad!
Style Essentials Twin Gloss – Value $2.99
This gloss looked a little gimmicky to me, but both shades are really sheer so I think the twin gloss really is more about how it looks in the tube than on the lips. It has a nice cupcake scent, but there is a little too much sparkle in this gloss for me.
This is my favorite item in the box this month. It’s very moisturizing, and I love the tropical scent. (Plus it is made with organic and fair trade ingredients!)
Incoco Nail Polish Applique in Beauty Sleep – Value $9
This is a pretty bold look for me, but I’ve found that my nail sticker listings on swaps are always popular, so I’ll likely end up swapping these.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $22.50. I’m happy with that value, and I think in general, this one of the better Beauty Box 5 boxes I’ve received in a while. What did you get from Beauty Box 5 this month?
