Well September’s subscription boxes are going downhill fast. Topbox was meh and this one from Beauty Box 5 isn’t all that. It’s hard to compete though when ipsy usually always deliver. I know Lip Factory will be kick-ass when it gets here, so at least I can look forward to that.
Beauty Box 5 changed it’s little info card. Seems like they now have a theme going on. This month is “On The Go”. I like the new look of the cards, so that’s good. What has me pissed is that I still can’t log in to the members account. They said by September we would be able to, but we are well into September and still can’t access it. What is good is that the box got to me really fast. It only took 5 days - that’s amazing! Usually it takes a couple of weeks or longer.
Beauty Box 5 is a subscription-based, beauty sampling program that delivers a box filled with 4-5 cosmetic samples to your door every month.
Cost: $12 / month, $30 / 3 months or $99 / 12 months
And on to the box:
Every Beauty Makeup Remover Pads w/ Argan Oil
I like getting makeup removing products. You just add water and wipe. Convenient and easy.
Fine Featherheads Fly Ties
Nooo! Someone’s playing a joke on me I just know it (I’ve been getting these hair ties a lot lately.) I’m not a fan of them, but at least the colours I got are alright.
Bella Pierre Cosmetics Celebrations Shimmer Powder
This is a nice fall colour and nice that it's full size. I don’t think I’ll use this considering I have too many eyeshadows right now. My swap/gift pile is getting big again.
Body Drench Lip Drench (Mango)
I find it a little hard to believe that it’s $4.99. I love lip balms and I like that it came in mango.
Skiin Shop Skin Smoothing & Soothing Eye Cream
A very small sample, but it’s for your eyes so you don’t use a lot at once. I should get quite a few uses out of this.
Overall *yawn* I’m really getting bored with BB5. Mind you I know what to expect from this box. It’s not one of those “Wow look at all these amazing products” box. It’s a low-key beauty subscription box that’s affordable. You'll get a good variety and sometimes get useful beauty tools along with the beauty products. It is still a box I would recommend. So don’t be hesitant to give them a try. What do you think of Beauty Box 5? Were you happy with your box this month?
