Beauty Box 5 Subscription Review- August 2014


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.

NOVEX Brazilian Keratin Hair Treatment: 30g/guessing here at the value- $3?

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.

LA Fresh Travel Lite Facial Cleansing Wipes: 8 wipes/value $3.50

Full Size: $20/48 wipes

Used these before, they’re good wipes. Perfect for travel.



Purlisse Pur Protect Sunscreen SPF 30: .5 oz/value $16

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.



Nanacoco Lip Gloss: Full Size/$4

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?
