  1. BB5 nails it every time?

  2. I really like the looks of that face brush 🙂 just subbed, and bought an extra box for an additional $10. Keeping my fingers crossed, that I like this one. Really considering canceling Ipsy. I’m up to about 8 boxes a month (heart beating fast, small amount of guilt creeping in…)

    • It is the softest brush I have ever received . The weight of the handle is awesome..and the brush bristles are to die for!

      • It’s so soft. Is it good for exfoliating? I’m going to try it out with a sample of face scrub that is intended to be used with a brush, but it just seems TOO soft for that, but it feels nice, I am thinking of canceling BB5. 🙁 This brush is neat, but the only thing I liked in the box is the face oil, and it has some things in it that are not great for the skin even though they are natural. I think I love ipsy so much because I get lots of make up and sometimes polish and when I get tools, they are brushes I can actually use. I tried the sweep brush from BB5, but I don’t like it. I have a highlighter brush (from ipsy-Luxie) and it sweeps on just the lightest amount and is feather-like. I find many of the things in BB5 a bit odd, but maybe I am not hip enough. Do you love these odd brushes?

        • Sun, I did not use it for a cleansing brush. I decided to use it as a buff brush ( for after I applied my foundation ). It did wonders for smoothing my foundation and gave me a very even look. I love this brush .

  3. I subbed for more than a year to BB5, and I let it lapse only because of product overload. Ipsy is still a favorite of mine, but I loved getting tools in this box. Also, for all the complaints about drugstore items in boxes, if you find a product you really like, you can easily find another when it’s gone, and it won’t break the bank.

  4. This month is the last of my sub and I will for sure be resubscribing. Like others have said, I use most of the items and they aren’t crap. Mostly full sizes too. They have been sending tools lately as well and not the average eye shadow brush either. 🙂

    I sub ALOT and I mean alot of boxes but this one is a winner every month it seems. And the one or two items I have put up for swap have swapped well and quickly.

  5. I cannot explain why but this box makes me happier than most others. It’s weird. Maybe because the box is so small and the products are so random, it truly is a surprise what I get usually. And if the stuff is too young I give it to the girl next door and she’s thrilled.

  6. I’m hoping for a nice facial cleanser to go along with that brush. With all of the boxes I receive. would think that I’d be stocked up on cleansers.

    • Haha…I was just digging through my stash and grumbling about “how am I lacking cleansers?”

      • I was JUST thinking this while at the gym this morning, on the last dregs of a sample of one from Birchbox. With all the other things we get, how am I missing cleanser? 🙂

      • Isn’t it odd? Lol…7 subs a month ( was way more) and you would think I would have a stock pile of cleansers. I received my cleanser, but I absolutely loved every single item!

        • Have you already received your BB5 box for August? If so, do you mind sharing what you received? My box just shipped yesterday, but I’m dying to find out what’s in it. 🙂

          • Sure…I didn’t want to spoil it for others, unless asked to.
            1. The face brush by Nika. $ 17.00:Wait until you get your hands on this one!

            2. A retinol spa treatment mask by Global Beauty Care. $7.50

            3.Cute Spa day hair ties ( no creases) $6.50

            4. Olive Natural Beauty Elixir a generous 30 ml sample in a dropper bottle..not sure of the price, but the full size is $36.00

            5.VO5 hot oil treatment vial $2.59

            6. A travel size can of Rave hair spray that has humidity protection ( this was a freebie and was not on the card.

            I will use every item in this box.

            I can only estimate but possibly a $45.00 or more value.

  7. I signed back up 4 months ago, after taking a 6 month break. Every box in the past 4 months have been great. I think I need to sign up for another yearly sub so I can save some money.
    BB5 has definitely stepped up their game.

  8. They seem to really be upping their game. I signed up for another 3 months. Not bad for a $10.00 box.

  9. Should I sign up??
    Is this worth it? That brush looks like my cashmere clarisonic head.

    • I have been really satisfied with this subscription. I use everything I get and it’s actually good prosucts and they are not just sample sizes well most of them are not sometimes it’s just 1 sample size and full size everything else. Try it out the free gift was a nice touch.

    • I think BB five is a great subscription box. I never get upset at what I am sent they are very interactive on social media with all of their customers and their customer service is great

    • This brush feels like heaven! I don’t even want to soil it, just rub it on my bare skin all day.
      Yes, you should sign up, lol.
      They always send out items that I will use…I don’t know how they do it. But…look at past reviews first..then decide.

    • I think you will know by looking at pics of what people get in the boxes. My favorite is ipsy, but I like to get make up, polish, and everyday tools I can use. I keep it simple and already have my skin care routine, but I do try all the samples when possible. I have BB5, Birchbox, and Ipsy, and ipsy is my favorite. I do believe the reviews I leave have helped me get better ipsy bags. The other 2 subs often have things I just don’t want. Beauty Box 5 does have some unusual things (like this brush, make up I’ve never heard of, or this V05 hair oil that has been forgotten). If you sign up for a year, it is a much better deal, like 8 something a box!
