BB5 has branched out once again with a new subscription box. They did this earlier in 2014 with Cave Cravings, a failed healthy snack box. This time it's Lilee, a beauty and lifestyle box. I'm interested in this box, but will hold off on subscribing until I see a box or two. If you'd like to subscribe to Lilee, you can use code: BB5PERK to receive a piece of jewelry ($50 value) with any subscription.
There's the usual info card - "Merry & Bright" is the theme this month.
Jacqua Rose Bouquet Hydrating Facial Mist
$16.50 / 50 ml
I love facial mists and this one is nice! It has a delicate rose scent and comes in a pretty frosted glass bottle.
Absolute New York Nail Polish Remover Pads
$2.99 / 32 pads
Another product I've not received from BB5 before and I could definitely use! They're lavender scented and make for easy and convenient removal of nail polish.
Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Moisturizer
$9.94 / 0.26 oz
Restore your skin with a blend of organic, antioxidant-rich plant and fruit oils.
Nanacoco Nail Polish (Stardust)
This is a chunky glitter nail polish! They suggest dabbing the glitter on in small dots instead of painting in strips like usual to get the most glitz per nail.
Lucky Brand Lucky Number 6 Perfume
At first I bummed to see a perfume sample, I'm not a fan of seeing them in boxes, but luckily (hehe!) I really like this one, so I'm fine with getting it. It has a blend of lotus, tiger lily, cashmere woods, and jasmine.
This month's Beauty Box 5 has a value of $33.38. Not bad at all and I'm pretty happy with the products this month. I've been with BB5 for a few years now and it's still one of the most affordable subscription boxes out there, but it's a hit or miss box and more times than not, I'm underwhelmed with the contents of the box, so with my annual plan coming to an end in February I will not be renewing my subscription. Also, because they are more boxes starting to ship to Canada that I want to try.
What do you think of December's Beauty Box 5?
