The funniest thing has been happening. I have been less enthralled with some of the monthly beauty boxes lately, but my enjoyment of Beauty Box 5 continues to increase. They are slowly but surely making themselves a force to be reckoned with. While one of my major complaints with Birchbox is that they’ve pretty much stopped sending out full-size products, Beauty Box 5 is sending out more full size products than ever.
Beauty Box 5 costs $12 per month, and each month you will receive 5 deluxe beauty samples, and oftentimes at least one of those products will be full-size.
Here’s what I received in this month’s box:
Nubar Nail Lacquer & Swissco Nail File: While the nail polish isn’t full-size, it’s certainly large enough to get a couple of uses out of it. The color I received “Hot Pink” is a fun neon shade that isn’t too over the top at all. I am IN LOVE with the nail file. The most recent FabBox I sent out included a glitter nail file and I have been wanting one for myself.
Bask Heavenly Silk Daily Skin Lotion: I’m not familiar with this brand and haven’t yet gotten around to trying it, but according to the packaging the lotion is filled with vitamins, plant extracts, and antioxidants.
H20+ Aquafirm + Micro-Collagen Moisturizer: I know that sometimes I complain about seeing the same brands pop up month after month, but H20+ is a brand I’ll never get tired of seeing. It’s one of my favorites! This moisturizer can be used day and night to promote collagen production and fight fine lines.
Be a Bombshell Birthday Suit Eyeshadow: Full-size product alert! I’m really excited that I received this eyeshadow (and that it’s a normal color). I’ll definitely be getting a lot of use out of this highly pigmented shadow! This retails for $14.
Technically, this month’s Beauty Box 5 contained 2 full size products, which is awesome. Also awesome is that for the first time in a long time I feel like I will actually use every item that was included in the box!
I definitely feel like I got my money’s worth, considering the eye shadow alone paid for the cost of the subscription.
Overall, I am very happy with this box and looking forward to what they send in September!
