Well it’s now the last day of the month and unless my mailman is laden down with parcels today I am still short five December boxes. However I did get another one yesterday so let’s talk about that.
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. After last months lackluster pickings from them I had hopes it could only go up.
This month theme is Happy Spa-lidays and the included items are supposed to help provide a few indulgences to help lift your spirits.
The back of the card details the products and the first look under it seemed like it might be good. Fingers crossed.
Body Drench Lip Drench Lip Balm in Pomegranate-$4.99 Full Size
One can never really have too many lip balms and this time of year I’m applying them every 5 minutes. This one smells good and gives just the slightest hint of color. Way better then those flosser picks from last month.
Absolute! New York Nail Polish Remover Pads in Spring Fresh-$2.99 Full Size
Another useful and needed item, way to go BB5! I think these will be great even if it might take a few to get all the polish off instead of the one it says can do ten nails.
Update-I take it back, there was more then enough remover to do all ten nails with one pad. I even had a dark polish on that needed to be removed and it got it all. It smells sooo much better then regular polish remover as well. My only complaint is that it is super oily feeling and I had to wash my hands after because the oil was everywhere on them.
Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Moisturizer-7.8mL $9.94
I just got the peel from this brand in one of my other boxes so this came just at the right time so I can use them together. This one is supposed to help combat sun damage too which is good since I didn’t wear a lot of sunscreen when I was younger and while I’m not showing signs of it yet I’m guessing there is some stuff to fix because of it.
Nanacoco Nail Polish in Stardust-$3.95 Full Size
Oooohhhh…..sparkly! I really do think glitter polishes are my favorite. I have a gold polish on right now and put a few swipes of this bronze glitter over top and it looks fantastic! I know it doesn’t matter with how the polish works but I also like that the bottle is triangular. Just a fun change from the normal square or round.
Lucky Brand Lucky Number 6 EDP Sample
This scent is supposed to attract money, so I’m all for it! It smells okay but I won’t be rushing out to purchase a bottle unless I happen to come into some cash in the next few days after wearing it. It says it’s a blend of lotus, tiger lily, cashmere woods and jasmine.
All told this month was waaaay better then last. The value of this box is $21.87 plus whatever the perfume sample would be. Still just about double what I paid for the box. I’m going to be using every single thing from this box which means it was a good box for me.
Have a safe and happy New Years!
