Each Beauty Box 5 comes with a description card. This month’s theme is Spa Day!
Did Hair Spa Day Hair Ties – Value $6.50
Hair ties are always useful, and that cucumber print one is just too cute!
Olive Natural Beauty Elixir – 1 oz Value $18
This is a super lightweight oil. In fact, it’s closer to water than oil in consistency. It’s all natural, unscented, and gentle, plus it left my skin feeling soft and smooth. I’m a fan!
I’ve really gotten into sheet masks thanks to subscription boxes, but this one just wasn’t for me. It was way more goopy than a typical sheet mask, and just felt a little too slimy to leave on my face for 20 minutes!
VO5 Hot Oil Therapy Treatment – Value $2.59
I feel like I grew up seeing VO5 hot oil commercials – this item was a total throwback to the ’90s! I had never actually tried it, though, so since the ’90s are making a comeback this year, it seemed like a good time to start!
To use the oil, you warm it up first under hot water, then massage into your hair for a minute, then rinse out. (Follow with your regular shampoo routine.) I like that this was a quick treatment, the oil had a lovely beachy/floral scent, and I wasn’t expecting it to lather – but it did!
Unfortunately, I can’t say I really noticed a difference in the softness of my hair, but maybe I did some damage control!
Rave 4X Mega Unscented Hairspray – 1.5 oz (Bonus item) Value $.25?
This item wasn’t included in the card, but an unscented hairspray is always a nice bonus! This hairspray provided pretty good hold, and the travel size is convenient.
Both the VO5 Oil and the Rave Hairspray also came with coupons:
Nika Exfoliating Brush – Value $17
This is the SOFTEST. BRUSH. EVER!
It’s designed to be used as an alternative to a Clarisonic for gently exfoliating with your facial cleanser. I absolutely love how this feels on my skin. I’ve used it on dry skin, too – love it!
Verdict: This month’s Beauty Box 5 has a value of about $47.50. Most of the items are hits for me, so I’m happy with the value – and I like the spa box theme!
