Beauty Box 5 September 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.

The box is filled with squiggles and the info card on top.

The back of the card is all your items and their prices.  The side you can see in the picture on top is all about the theme.

Elizabeth Mott Tints & Sass Lip+Cheek Stain-3g $7.22

Sigh…I had a sorta kinda handle on using stains last year around Xmas when I seemed to get a bunch but since I’ve gone back to powder blush I have lost all ability to use this.  So with my streaky attempt making me look insane I do like the colour.  I just need to get back to being competent.

Beautiful Nutrition Lemon Rinse Gentle Clarifying Treatment-$2.00ish

This smells amazing!!! It’s like real fresh lemons in a bottle!  This is for your hair to add shine and keep your scalp healthy.  You use it after shampoo and conditioner and leave it in for a minute, rinse out, and go about your routine as normal.  I’ve just done a bunch of bleaching to my hair so I need anything that repairs in any way.

Harvey Prince Sincerely Mini Roller-$21.00

I have already received this same perfume in a box I got in July but since I like it it’s okay.  The roller applicator is easy to use and this is a strong floral scent that makes me feel really feminine.  Hubby hates floral perfume but it is really most of what I wear.

Bellapierre Shimmer Powder in Snowflake-$19.99

I swear I have also already got this in another box but I cannot find it so I don’t know.  This is a white glittery shadow that also doubles as a highlighter.  Loose powder shadows like this are not my favorite way to use them but I like the brand and thw colour.

Be A Bombshell Cosmetics Eye Crayon in Hang Over-$14.00

This colour is nice.  It’s not too dark and has a good shimmer so you will be noticed wearing it.  The pencil style makes it easy to put on and I like that you can just twist up the stick instead of having to sharpen it.

I think I might have one more box from them or this might be it.  Either way this was a better box for stuff even if a bunch of it was reapeats.  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 $64.21 which is great.  This just proves that they really do vary from month to month, though they are on a two box streak for me.
