I’m taking a look at my first Beauty Box 5. I saw an unboxing on YouTube and thought I might like the items in their boxes. Plus, I love subscription boxes and this one is reasonably priced, so I decided to give it a try.
Each box will include items from makeup, haircare, skincare, nail care, fragrances, and/or beauty accessories. This box is not a customized box and does not have a questionnaire to determine the needs and likes of subscribers. Beauty Box 5 is sent once a month with a cost of $12, including shipping. There are options to subscribe monthly, $30 quarterly, or $99 yearly.
The box shipped on August 14th and was delivered on the 19th. I did not receive a shipping notification until the 16th.
This site states customers can expect 4-5 samples per box. The shadow in the box was full-sized. Boxes may feature up-and-coming brands and well-known brands.
My Beauty Box 5:
Bask Heavenly Silk Daily Skin Lotion (2 oz) – contains vitamins, plant extracts, and antioxidants. The lotion provides anti-aging and firming benefits. Retail: 22 oz $19.98 – beautybrands.com
Nubar Nail Lacquers (0.25 oz) – A cruelty-free and vegan nail polish. Also, 3 free formulas with no formaldehyde, toluene, and DBP (phthalate). Retail: 0.5 oz $8.00
H2O Plus Aquafirm + Micro-collagen Moisturizer (0.27 oz) – A nutrient-packed moisturizer that can be applied day or night to promote collagen production and fight fine lines. Retail: 1.7 oz $50.oo – h2oplus.com
Swissco Nail File – Provides the sparkles that every girl loves. Use with the Nubar polish included in the shipment. Retail: One Size $1.50 – swisscollc.com
Be a Bombshell Eyeshadow (Onesize) – A highly pigmented, long-lasting shadow that will bring out the Bombshell in you. The shadow can be used wet or dry. Retail: $14.00 beabombshellcosmetics.com
Overall I think the box is ok. I would have loved to see one hair care product in the package, but I will definitely try the items that were sent to me. I’m excited most about the Bask moisturizer and the Nubar polish. I have a Be a Bombshell lipgloss from another subscription box. I can’t wait to see just how highly pigmented the eyeshadow is compared to their other products.
I hope you enjoyed seeing the goodies I received in my Beauty Box 5 – August 2013 box. Can’t wait to see what will be in next month’s box.
