Now, onto the items!
So Susan Light Diffuser – FULL SIZE! Value $18
I love So Susan products. Their formulas are free of any ingredients you may want to avoid, and their packaging is usually pretty cute, too!
This is a bronzer/highlighter duo. The pigment is pretty good on both shades, but it took multiple swipes to get these swatches:
(The highlighter is very subtle – it’s barely showing up below the bronzer!)
Nanacoco Nail Polish – FULL SIZE! Value $4
(Nail polish color will vary for subscribers.)
I’m really loving this pale blue/grey creme shade! Here it is on with two coats:
It’s a great high-shine creme formula and I’ve been wearing it for a few days with minimal chipping, too.
Pur-lisse Blue Lotus 4-in-1 Cleansing Milk – 1 oz Value $7.20
Pur-lisse is one of those brands that makes a lot of appearances in subscription boxes, but I have no complaints because I really love their formulas. This cleanser is ingredient-conscious, gentle, and didn’t dry out my skin!
MaskerAide Spotted! – Value $ 5
Each sheet includes 12 clear stickers made with a blend of Salicylic Acid, Volcanic Ash, and Tea Tree Oil to help treat blemishes. (These aren’t clear to go under makeup, just to not look like you are wearing stickers on your face!) And for best results, MaskerAide recommends wearing them overnight.
Novex Bamboo Sprout Leave-In Conditioner – 3.88 oz Value $3.70
This is a great size sample for a leave in conditioner! This formula is pretty light, so it didn’t weigh down my hair, and it definitely added softness. The only drawback for me is that this is formulated with parabens.
Verdict: This month’s Beauty Box 5 has a value of about $38! I think that’s great for a $12 box! I’m continually impressed with Beauty Box 5, and I think it’s a great beauty box if you are looking for value and are OK with getting a mix of drugstore and more high end brands.
