Beauty Box 5 Review- August 2014
What: Beauty Box 5
Beauty Box 5 is a monthly subscription beauty box that sends out- you guessed it- 5 products per box. Some are full sized, some are deluxe, and it’s a good mix of make-up, skincare and haircare products.
Cost: $12/per month. Other options: $10/per month with 3 month subscription, or $8.25/per month for a 12 month subscription. I signed up for a year, so this is the most affordable box I get.
This month’s theme is “Radiant & Remarkable.”
First look at the August box!
They made a mistake and sent me this Novex conditioner when the card that came with the box said I was supposed to get ROUX Anti-Aging Hair Serum…but oh well. I’d received that hair serum in my Beauty Army box last month, so no big deal.
Full Size: $15
This packet is large, easily enough for 2-3 uses. I’ve used it in the past and really like it. Leaves your hair soft and silky and actually doesn’t weight my hair down much like some deep conditioners do.
Full Size: $20/48 wipes
Used these before, they’re good wipes. Perfect for travel.
Full Size: $55
I am not kidding when I say that this is probably the 5th or 6th tube of Purlisse I’ve gotten in the past couple of months. I think Purlisse has teamed up with every box I subscribe to! I am not complaining- it’s an expensive product and I live in the sunshine state, so I need all the SPF I can get.
Style Essentials Nail Polish: 25 fl oz (Full Size)/value $7
This is a dark gray, blackish polish with some shimmer. Not quite my taste, especially for summer, but I’ll pull it out again in the fall/winter and see what I think.
I’ve mentioned before in posts that bright, non-nude lipsticks/lipglosses are exctly what I need to be sent, because I will never pick them out on my own. This is one of the many reasons I love subscription beauty boxes- it forces me to try something I normally wouldn’t. This color is a bright, hot pink color and I absolutely love it. It’s super glossy without being sticky and stands out so well against some minimal eye make-up.
Overall Opinion: This was a fun box. I’m especially excited about the lipgloss and everything else will be used. I think for the price, Beauty Box 5 is a great subscription box.
Did you get this month’s Beauty Box 5 box? What did you think?
