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.
The box felt really light this month but first glance seemed good.
The theme this month is S.O.S.-Super Outstanding Skin. The card lists the items and retails plus a little blurb about each one.
Also included was a card for Syyli-Style giving you 25% off any order. I haven’t looked at the site yet but it’s good till June 30th.
Bio Swiss Stainless Steel Mini Tweezer-$4.99
I was just looking in the mirror this morning thinking I needed to get at my brows! These little tweezers come in a case so that you can throw them in your bag without worry and have a nice slant for grabbing. I seem to lose tweezers a lot so I am happy to have these.
Ahava 3 Sample Pack-$6.00
This little envelope has Time To Clear Purifying Mud Mask, Deadsea Water Mineral Hand Cream, and Time To Hydrate Essential Day Moisturizer. All three use minerals from the Dead Sea to provide a “Sensorial Experience”. These are quite small so each is really only good for one use but since you did get more then one kind I guess it works out okay.
Styli-Style Blush/Highlighter Stick-$5.99 Full Size
There was an assortment of colours sent out in boxes of these guys and mine is a highlighter not a blush. It is a colour I would describe as champagne and once on my skin all you see it the shimmer, which I like. It was a little stiff to spread on but blended quickly.
Dermalogica AgeSmart Multivitamin Hand and Nail Treatment-$2.50 7mL
This anti-aging hand cream soaked in super fast! Maybe I really needed some lotion today. It has no scent and is not greasy at all. It was pretty thick too.
Coastal Scents Classic/Synthetic Brush-$1.95
This was another item that had a few variations being sent out. I got an eyeshadow brush and it looks fine. It’s never a bad thing to get more brushes.
This months box was one of the good ones! I like everything and if I had to have a complaint it would be that I got two tools in the same box. However since I will use them both, it’s a small complaint. The value this month is $21.43, which is pretty average for them and about double the cost. If you want to try out BB5 I’d keep my eyes open for the sales. You can find this one on sale for about $6.00 a box every few months!
