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.
Under the lid all I can see is the card. This months theme is Bon Voyage.
Once I removed that I could see some stuff finally but I could already tell this was one of the bad boxes.
The back of the card gives you what you got, a little blurb about it and full size retails.
Urban Decay Perversion Mascara-3mL $5.50
This is the best item in the box and it’s something I received in another box back in March. I think it also might be the most expensive item sent out this month. I like getting mascara samples and I like this mascara, however the fact that it’s something that was promoted as a new item a while ago is a little letdown.
Herbal Essences Body Wash in Body Burst-35mL $0.27
I didn’t even know Herbal Essences made body wash. This smells good and I’m sure it will lather up and do it’s job. It’s a good sized sample but it’s something you can get a lot of places for free.
LOL Rotational Eye Shadow in Splash That Cash-$3.00
I have to admit that when I saw this all I could think was that this was from the dollar store. It has six shades, all of which are darker and has that odd cheap eyeshadow smell. If my girls were older this would go straight to them for playing with. There were some other colours sent out so maybe they were better.
Nails Inc. Nail Polish in Royal Botanical Gardens-$9.50
Well i guess this wins as most expensive item in the box. It’s a good colour but it goes on a little thick, not in a good way. There were multiple colours of this sent out in boxes.
Simple Skincare Micellar Cleansing Water-0.17mL $0.00
This cannot even be really called a sample. It is a pre-soaked wipe pad and a coupon. Wow.
This month was a complete disaster. The box value is $18.27 and half of that is the nail polish alone. The polish and eyeshadow are both full size. The Simple sample is something that gets put in your mailbox. They did also include a $20 gift card for Gorgehair.com but you have to spend $49.95 before you can use it, so it doesn’t really count for anything. If for some reason you want to give them a go I would definitely look around for sales. This box gets really cheap every few months.
