This month’s Beauty Box 5 review is for a promotional box that was offered to bloggers. As you may know I already subscribe to this box and will post another review for the box I received from my subscription. Beauty Box 5 is celebrating a total redesign of their website. The new site features a new, fresh look with content created to enhance your Beauty Box 5 experience. I couldn’t be more happy about that.
Beauty Box 5 is one of the more affordable subscription boxes out there. I have enjoyed this subscription for the most part. They tend to have a lot of repeat brands which might bother some people, but I have no complaints thus far. I usually receive useful products and like the variety.
1 Month: $12
3 Months: $30
12 Months: $99
Jean Pierre Cosmetics Oil-Absorbing Facial Tissues
Instantly removes shine from your face. Helps prevent blemishes by removing excess oil & impurities. I received this in my April box. I love these and always use them, especially this time of year.
Brazen Cosmetics Eyeshadow - Fortuitous
If you know Beauty Box 5 then you know this is a staple brand. I have received a few of their products now and have to say they are great eyeshadows. Luckily I have not received any repeat colours. This is a deep forest green that I love. It compliments my hazel eyes really well.
Helps prevent mascara smudging and clumping. I received these Lash Cards before and I don’t find them that useful. Maybe I was using them incorrectly, but I found them to make it more difficult to apply mascara.
Model Co. Eyeliner - Black
Another black eyeliner - enough already! I’m not sure if it was from this subscription box or not, but I've received this exact eyeliner before. I never get too excited about getting a standard eyeliner.
City Cosmetics - City Lips
City Lips is an advanced formula lip plumper that instantly delivers dramatic plumping effects. It provides instant fullness, definition, hydration AND long-lasting plumping benefits by stimulating new collagen development. City Lips works safely, painlessly and without irritation or numbness, and even diminishes and fades the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles!
Now this intrigues me! I tried this and at first did feel a slight stinging, but it didn’t take long for the feeling to subside. I didn’t notice any instant results, but I‘m hoping after several uses I’ll have Angelina Jolie lips (yeah I know that’s a stretch).
Unfortunately this promo box was pretty underwhelming. If you were seeing this box for the first time I’m not sure if it would entice you to subscribe. What do you think? My next review will be a little better (Pt.2), you’ll see. There were some full size products and some were new to Beauty Box 5.
I did find out that that in the August box there will be these Nubar Nail Lacquers. Not something I want, but I know for a lot of you this is good news!
