Beauty Box 5 November 2014

Beauty Box 5 is a subscription box that sends out 5 products or samples every month. They might be makeup, beauty accessories, hair, skincare, fragrance, body, or nail products. It is another of the cheaper ones at $12 a month or even less if you sign up for a longer term. They do charge $3 a month to ship to Canada. This months theme is Gracefully Grounded.  I had seen quite a few spoilers from other peoples boxes so I was not as excited about what I was getting as I could have been.

The info card and a discount card to Sparkles & Pop.

L’Oreal Paris Nail Colour in 580-$5.99 Full Size

This is a really nice gold shimmer polish. Perfect for Christmas time.

DenTek Floss Picks & Case-6pc-$1.25

This is one of the items I was not so thrilled with. While I’m happy to have this to toss in my bag, at no point when I signed up to get a beauty box did I think I would be getting dental picks. There was also a $1.00 off coupon for these in the box.

Hask Macadamia Revitalizing Shine Oil-18mL $2.99

I have hair that tends to be a bit dry and in need of smoothing so this oil should be helpful.  It is applied after washing while hair is damp.  It smells really good too!

Laura Ashley Body Butter in Cherry Blossom-1.75oz $3.33

This does not have the texture I associate with body butter.  It is almost like a gel lotion, not thick at all.  It absorbs really quick and smells good though so I like it.

Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash-53mL $0.53

This was the other so-so product for me.  I like and have used this before but was just kind of hoping for something  a bit more exciting.

Overall this box had a value of $14.09.  I’m kinda disappointed that the most expensive thing in the box is a bottle of nail polish but at least I like the colour.  There is nothing wrong with the products this time, I just find them a little underwhelming.  Maybe they are just preparing an awesome box for December that’ll feel like a great gift.
