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.
You can never tell what is inside this box from your first peek since the info card is the same size as the box. Once I got that out I could see some interesting things.
The theme this month is Summer Night Out. The card tells you what you received, how much it would cost to buy some more, and a little bit about each one. Also in the box were a bunch of other cards. Two are letting you know more about items in the box and the others are just advertising for BB5 and partnership between them and Sparkles & Pop.
Ofra Lip Gloss in Natural-$12.95 Full Size
BB5 sends out a ton of Ofra products. The good thing about that though is that I really like them so I’m happy to see one every month. This lip gloss is fantastic!!! The colour is barely there so you get the great shine without looking really made up. It’s not sticky and smells good. Win!!!
Ofra Lip Liner in Mauve-$13.00 Full Size
So as I was saying…..here’s another Ofra item. This lip liner matches perfectly with the gloss from above. I don’t normally think to wear liner with a gloss but it works as a nice base to keep it there a bit longer.
Nanacoco Nail Polish in Dazzle Purple-$3.00 Full Size
This is a fun colour. I did my toes with it because I have a bandage on one finger from an unfortunate incident with a knife and a squash. It’s much more pink then the name would leave you to believe. One coat gave good coverage but two is better for sure.
Love Life Skin Collection-1mL $0.75×4
The info says this skin care line was first used to help chemo patients skin recover. It’s made for sensitive skin and I received 2 of each Intense Recovery Serum and Restorative Night Cream. Each packet should give me enough for two applications so this is almost a weeks worth.
Pur-Lisse Flash Tattoos-$9.00
I have a hard time believing the value of these. They look like something that would have been included with purchase to me. That bring said I don’t care much for them anyways. These sparkly tattoos have been everywhere this summer and I think I’m just to old or not cool enough to wear them. The girls should get plenty of joy from them though.
This month was waaaaay better then last month even with the tattoos. BB5 does send out packets quite often so that is something to keep in mind if you don’t care to receive them. The value this month is $40.95 which is great. This just proves that they really do vary from month to month.
