Beauty Box 5 Subscription Box Review – September 2015
Beauty Box 5 is a monthly beauty and makeup subscription box. 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.
Harvey Prince Sincerely Roller Ball – Value $21
I’m pretty impressed that this item alone is worth more than the cost of the box! This scent isn’t for me, but I know Harvey Prince is a popular brand in subscription boxes, so I’ll probably swap or gift this.
Bellapierre Shimmer Powder in Snowflake – FULL SIZE! Value $15
I’ve sampled Bellapierre before thanks to subscription boxes, and I like their formulas. This powder is very fine, so it gives a subtle shimmer – no over-the-top sparkles!
Beautiful Nutrition Lemon Rinse Gentle Clarifying Treatment – 2 oz? Value $1.50
This product is designed to help remove dulling product buildup and enhance shine. It’s free of parabens, phthalates, synthetic colors or fragrances, and it is color safe too. (Plus it smells like lemons!) I’m excited to try this.
Be a Bombshell Eye Crayon in Amazon – FULL SIZE! Value $16
(Subscribers will receive a variety of colors). I’m not the biggest fan of Be a Bombshell cosmetics (partly because they were in way too many subscription boxes last year), but if you’re looking for an emerald eye crayon, this one has a good amount of pigment. (Swatched below).
Elizabeth Mott Tints & Sass Lip + Cheek Stain – 3 g Value $7
I swatched this below and got a lot of product on my arm so the color looks deep, but you can actually apply it in a sheer way and build color as needed.
Verdict: I would have cancelled my Beauty Box 5 subscription months ago if I hadn’t bought an annual subscription up front, and this is one of the first boxes that is making me feel OK about not cancelling. This box has a $60 retail value, and I’m happy with the sizes of all the items included.
