Beauty Box 5 Review - June 2013 - Monthly Makeup Subscription

I recently signed up for a Beauty Box 5 subscription – and so far I’m really happy with the boxes! (Check out my May Beauty Box 5 review).  The June Box definitely had a summer theme with sunscreen and bronzer!

This is the card that comes with each box. They included coupon codes for Coolway hair products and Just Being Sexy bronzers.

Just Being Sexy Body Bronzer Packets ( 8 ml each) Value $6 total

I tried this bronzer out – and I really love the results. It looks very natural (not orange or sparkly). The only issue I have is that I’m not a fan of the scent.  I may pass the other packet along to a friend.

Coolway Cool Cleanse Shampoo – 1 oz Value $3

Coolway Cool Hydrate Conditioner – 1 oz Value $3

I love the Coolway Transform Styling Spray from the May Box (I use it everyday), so I can’t wait to try out the shampoo and conditioner. (I also love that the Coolway products are free of parabens, phthalates, sulfates and synthetic colors).

Aveeno Protect & Hydrate Lotion Sunscreen – .5 oz $1.50

Brazen Cosmetics Eye Shadow in Smarty Pants (Sample) – Value $4

I love that this sunscreen goes on like a light lotion, and not like some sticky sunscreens I’ve come across. Also, I love sampling these organic, vegan mineral eyeshadows, but I think I haven’t been able to open one of these samples without spilling half of the mineral powder everywhere. Anyone else have issues with these?

Verdict: I paid $10 for this box and received about $17.50 worth of product. It’s not as amazing of a value as the May box, but I’m still happy with the June box. (Super high-value boxes always spoil me for the next month!) What do think you of the June Beauty Box 5?

  1. I absolutely love the results I got from using the bronzer from Just Being Sexy!
    I just went on their website to order the product, but it’s telling me that my code(Beautybox5)is not valid?

    Is anyone else having this problem?

  2. I spill the Brazen eyeshadows every time! I try to tap it and open slowly, but it still catches in the grooves and on the edge and spills out. I hate that!

  3. When I open mineral or powder shadows, I usually set them down flat and open them slowly! I know that’s kind of obvious, but whenever I get a new product, I want to pick it up and open it, but I always have to force myself to just set it down and open carefully!


  4. I didn’t get the mineral eye shadow or the aveeno sunscreen. I received a Minxxette Brush Hanger ($4.69) and a sample of Shea Terra Organics Rose Hips Black Soap Facial (1 oz, $4.50). So the value of my box was a little higher than yours at around $21. I’m happy with what I got. I have more sunscreen than I’ll use in my lifetime and I’m the same way with loose powder – except I get all of it on the floor (and myself!) Working on my review!

    • I got the same box as you Katie. I just opened a three month subscription and was pretty happy with my first box! I always love hair samples, love that the face wash is organic and I love bronzers, so other than the lame brush holder, I was satisfied for $10 b
