Beauty Box 5 Review – June 2013

Beauty Box 5 - June Review

This month’s Beauty Box 5 is another standard box. Nothing spectacular, but there are a few products I will get some use out of. Beauty Box 5 delivers 4-5 hand picked sample to your door every month. Your beauty box will include a selection of makeup, hair care, skin care, nail care, fragrances and beauty accessories. They recently did a revamp of the website. In my last post I talked about how much of a problem it was, so I’m hoping it runs a lot smoother. They still have some fine tuning to do. Members still can’t log in to manage their account. That should be up and running by the end of July. This is one of the most affordable subscription boxes out there.

Prices are:

1 month: $12
3 months: $30
1 year: $100

Here’s what was inside my box:

Coolway Cool Cleanse Shampoo
$25 / 8.6 oz

Coolway Cool Hydrate Conditioner

This gentle and nourishing formula cleanses your hair with protein-rich botanic extract, Porphyra Seaweed, that strengthens and hydrates while reducing breakage and frizz. Safe and effective for all hair types and ethnicities.

I’ve used other Coolway hair products, but not their shampoos and conditioners. From the spoilers I was expecting a bigger size sample. I really hope it reduces frizz, because even though my hair is more or less straight, I get a lot frizz from the humidity.

Coolway Cool Hydrate Conditioner
$25 / 8.6 oz

Coolway Cool Hydrate Conditioner

Used alongside Cool Cleanse Shampoo, this conditioner nourishes with Porphyra Seaweed extract for a softer, stronger, more polished look and feel while hydrating for enhanced smoothness, body and shine! Safe and effective for all ethnicities.

Again, just hoping it helps with the frizz.

Just Being Sexy - Body Bronzer
$49 / 6 fl oz

Just Being Sexy - Body Bronzer

Searching for the perfect bronzer? Look no further! This face and body anti-aging, ultra-hydrating bronzer delivers the perfect bronze colour on all skin tones. With a perlesque sheen finish, your skin will look toned, refined and smooth!

I’m always skeptical with these wash off bronzers. I’m afraid it will rub off onto my clothing. This one says it doesn’t stain clothing, but I don’t know - I’m not wearing white if I do use this!

Aveeno Protect + Hydrate Sunscreen
$9.99 / 3 oz

Aveeno Protect + Hydrate Sunscreen

This fast absorbing and oil-free lotion sunscreen provides superior broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection while hydrating skin. Remains sweat and water-resistant for up to 80 min!

I like the Aveeno brand and I’m happy to get to try their sunscreen. I didn’t find it too thick when I applied it and it did absorb fast. Also included was a $1 off coupon.

Brazen Cosmetics Eyeshadow - Gunshot
$7.99 / .18 oz

Brazen Cosmetics Eyeshadow - Gunshot

Brazen Cosmetics Eyeshadow - Gunshot

Back by popular demand, here’s another Brazen eyeshadow to add to your collection. Professional-grade formulas provide longwearing and highly pigmented colours that will outdo the summer heat.

So far I have not received a repeat shade in my box, so I’m cool with getting another eyeshadow. This dark brown with shimmer will be great for a smoky eye look.
