The holiday season came and went and we’ve now jumped into the New Year but my unboxing continues — believe it or not. Beauty Box 5 arrived around the end of December but with all the hoo haa back then, I run out of 2013 to post this one!
I’ve definitely explored the beauty wilderness last year through the little surprises I got from my beauty boxes or glam bags for that matter, and it’s been a trip, ladies!
Another interesting box that joined my collection came in this teal box packaging and was themed Naughty or Nice to coincide with the holiday season. Unlike most beauty box subscriptions, Beauty Box 5 doesn’t have any quizzes for us to take so we really are in for a surprise, which is cool if you’re a fan of that or it could turn out that you’ll end up with products you’re never going to use. Imagine that?
What is Beauty Box 5?
Beauty Box 5 is a subscription-based, beauty sampling program that delivers a box filled with 5 cosmetic samples to your door every month. Aimed at introducing women to new cosmetic products and educating them on best practices, Beauty Box 5 scours the market to find the best products for your lifestyle.
Now the good news is, Beauty Box 5 seems to know how to mix things up a little to cover every avenue to make sure that there’s something for everyone. And this December box did just that.
I received 5 products in this box from makeup samples to body care items. What’s amazing about this particular box is the fact that I’ve been meaning to grab a nice foot scrubber for a long time and Every Beauty Foot Smoother is in this box. Lucky!
I had some serious scrubbing to do girls, especially the rough area around my heels and I have to admit, this flexible foot smoother definitely did wonders!
I was excited to see NYX Love in Rio Eyeshadow Palette, not only does it look very cute in its packaging, it will be a perfect go-to in Spring time. It’s exciting to see how my NYX stash is growing through beauty boxes collection. I saw a lovely FOTD using this palette from this site here and I think the makeup look she did is simply stunning!
Now if you’re into lip plumpers, you might want to take a minute and check Ofra Cosmetics Sultry Lipgloss Plumper, which has the just bitten kick after a few seconds of applying it. Love it when a product does what it says on the tin.
As for the remaining products, I simply can’t remember the last time I used Clean & Clear products or have come across this brand Body Drench but these sizes are always good for traveling, so this will surely come handy when the time is right.
Here’s the actual cost of each product:
NYX Cosmetics Love in Rio – $6.00
Ofra Cosmetics Sultry Lipgloss Plumper – $12.95
Every Beauty Flexible Foot Smoother – $4.99
Body Drench Daily Moisturizing Lotion – $1.25
Clean & Clear Morning Burst Hydrating Gel Moisturizer – $1.17
Total = $26.36
Beauty Box 5 cost: $12 FREE Shipping
If you’re planning to try out a subscription box this year, Beauty Box 5 is worth taking a look especially since this box seems to include a variety of items from different brands, which aren’t in the same categories.
I think that we can all agree that Beauty Box 5 December is your head to toe box. There’s something for everyone in this box. And whether you’ve been good or bad, if you want to treat yourself, there’s always a beauty box, which is a just a subscription away!
