I've been interested in trying out beauty subscription boxes lately for some strange reason. I'm not usually a fan of getting sample items because I almost always forget to use them. However, I've been seeing a lot of bloggers talk about various beauty subscriptions and was intrigued to try them out. Beauty Box 5 was kind of enough to send me a complimentary box to try out.
Beauty Box 5 is a subscription based, beauty sampling service that delivers 5 deluxe sized samples and full sized products for $12 a month. They also offer subscription bundles like $36 for a four month subscription or $99 for a yearly subscription.
Since this was a complimentary box, my shipping estimate is not the most accurate. It took around two weeks for my box to arrive. It was shipped by DHL Globalmail. No signature was required because the box was small enough to fit in my mail box.
It came shipped in a small blue box. The items weren't bubble wrapped but there was packing paper inside. Nothing came damaged or broken. When I opened the box, it came with a card letting me know how Beauty Box 5 works and what's it about. The only downside was there wasn't any information card included that told me the value of each product that was in the box.
What's Inside the Box
1. Aveeno Positively Nourishing Calming Body Wash | 59ml Sample Size
I'm not usually a body wash kind of girl but I can definitely use this when I'm feeling adventurous or want a change in routine. Its a perfect size to travel with.
2. Bellapierre Cosmetics in Ruby | 3.75g Full Size
This is just your normal red glitter so I'm not sure how often I would wear this if at all on my eyes. Maybe I'll try using it in my nail art instead.
3. Be A Bombshell Lip Gloss in All Dolled Up | 3g Full Size
Its a pretty shade but just from swatching it, I can tell its a thicker feeling gloss. Its a great color for the winter/fall season and it has good pigmentation.
4. Nubar Cuticle and Nail Oil | 7ml Sample Size
I tested this a little bit already and it seems nice. It has a nice scent and its feels light on the skin.
6. Montagne Jeunesse Glacial Clay Spa Mask | 1 Full Size Mask
I've actually tried this mask previously and like it. Its nice that you don't get the mess that usually comes when you apply a clay mask from a jar or tube.
For only $12 a month, Beauty Box 5 is great beauty subscription box to try out to sample a variety of beauty products. About half the products were full size. I liked the majority of the items in my box and even some of the stuff I didn't like, I'm still interested in trying out. I don't know the total value of the box but I'm sure its well over the $12 that its sold at. I love that this box didn't have any foil packet samples too. I'm loving that everything is in a tube or container because I'm more inclined to use them when there like that.
