Beauty Box 5 April 2015

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 though.  If I’m being honest though this box has been very hit or miss for me.  Sometimes the products included are so random or so not what I would think should be in a beauty box that I wonder what they are thinking.  Other times it’s really good.

This months first look was good.  Nothing odd off the top.

The theme this month is Bloom.  The card gives you a few ideas for breaking out of winter and the back has all your products and prices.

Also this month was a card letting us know that because of one of the items children were helped out.

Lasting Smiles Passionfruit Mango Organic Lip Balm-$4.99 Full Size

It seems like it’s been a bit since I  have received a lip balm but that can’t be right.  Anyways…..this is the item that provided the cleft lip and palate surgeries mentioned above.  I like that they included something like this and love when a product I’m going to buy anyways gives back.  The lippy smells good and I’m sure will work as well as any other one I’ve tried.  It’s not like you can have too many, since they get lost easily or your preschooler eats them…..

Dancing Goat Hula Bliss Body Lotion-2oz. $4.50

I love the name of this!  As you probably guessed it’s made from goat’s milk.  It also has lavender in it and that is the predominant scent as soon as you open it.  It soaked into my hands super quick and there is no greasiness at all.  This whole bottle makes me smile and I want more just so I can look at the label all day.

Incoco Nail Polish Applique Set-$8.99 Full Size

I have always wanted to try these nail strips but have never done it because I’m cheap.  I don’t think they will work on me because I have little nails.  Not short but small if you know what I mean.  When fake nails were the thing I always had a couple that were too big because there wasn’t enough small ones to do both hands and I think this will be more of the same. This is why I started getting these boxes so I could try new things so I guess I got my wish on this one.

Style Essentials Twin Gloss-$2.50 Full SIze

This is sooooo cool!!! There are two different colours of gloss in the tube and you can actually see it blending together just before it oozes out the end.  It smells awesome too!  Very fun and very shiny. Yay!!

First Aid Beauty Facial Cleanser-3x2mL $0.24 each

I have tried this out before from Sephora and I don’t really like it so I’m glad the samples are small.  That being said it is a good product, I’m just not fond of the formula and that is is almost cream like. Not much else to say about it really.

This was one of the better BB5 boxes.  I like everything but the cleanser and that is only 0.75 worth of the box.  The total value is $21.70.  There were also three full size items which is nice.  I think the lip gloss is really fun and I can’t stop looking at the goat lotion so I’m entertained too.  Two good months in a row…keep it up BB5!
