Each Beauty Box 5 comes with a description card. This month’s theme is Stay Golden!
Now, onto the items!
Jean Pierre Vitamin C Sheet Mask – Value $2
This sheet mask was hydrating, and while I didn’t love leaving it on for 15 minutes, my skin definitely looked refreshed when I took it off!
Did Hair Gold Bobby Pins – Retail Value Listed $6.50
Confession – I’m not much of a bobby pin wearer. I do love all things gold, though! (These are a nice staple to include in the box for most subscribers. I will likely donate them.)
This shade is described as a “shimmering bronze.”
It reads a little pinker than I would expect for a bronze color. (Which I prefer for a blush.) And the shimmer is pretty subtle, too. Here it is swatched:
It was easy to blend out for a hint of color, too.
BB5 Highlighter Fan Brush – Retail Value Listed $12
While I always like getting makeup brushes in subscription boxes, I wasn’t too impressed with the quality of the bristles on this one. The brush feels a little lower in quality than brushes I’m used to at the similar price point. It’s good to have in a pinch as a backup brush, but nothing too exciting.
Sweep Rose Gold Lash Curler – Retail Value Listed $16
This lash curler is on par with my other eyelash curlers in terms of quality. I like the rose gold color, too.
I’m guessing you could get a similar quality eyelash curler at half the listed value, though.
Verdict: This month’s Beauty Box 5 has a retail value of about $42.50. I think that’s good for a $12 box, though this box wasn’t a great fit for me. Also, I was hoping for at least one gold makeup item considering the theme was Stay Golden!
What do you think about the April Beauty Box 5? Did you like that this box was more beauty tools than beauty products?
FYI – If you sign up for a Beauty Box 5 subscription by the 21st of a month, you’ll get that month’s box as your first box.
