I am ALWAYS on the hunt for new and exciting monthly subscription boxes.  I currently have a few that I get and I love the element of surprise when they come in!  Subscription boxes are a great way to try out new products you typically wouldn’t purchase or that you’ve never heard of.

December BB5

I received my first Beauty Box 5 sub box earlier this month.  Basically it comes with 5 sample and deluxe sample items to try out for $12.00 per month.  Lets see what I got!

Here are the 5 items.  Below I will run through each item and we’ll total up the value!

Be A Bombshell Lip Gloss in Taupeless

Taupeless Box

Be A Bombshell Lip Gloss in Taupeless is a full size item I received.  This has a doe foot applicator and was surprisingly well pigmented for a lip gloss.  It went on smooth and had decent staying power (for a gloss).

Retail Price: $14.00

Model Co Black Eyeliner

Full Eyeliner

Another full sized item I received was a Model Co black eyeliner.  I can never have enough black eyeliner, so I was happy with it.  It comes with a built in sharpener in the cap and it’s an ok eyeliner.  Not my favorite, but not the worst I’ve used.

Retail Price: $18.00

Jean Pierre Oil Absorbing Facial Tissues

Oil Absorbing Facial tissues

I have oily skin, so I like to keep Oil Absorbing Tissues in my purse at all times, so this was a welcome item!  This small packet (really it can fit in your pocket) comes with 50 3.3″ x 2.1″ tissues which will last me about 2-3 months typically.

Retail Price: $4.00

CoolWay Shampoo and Conditioner 

Cool Way

I actually loved the shampoo and conditioner from CoolWay!  Extremely hydrating and my hair felt great after using it.  May need to hunt down full sized bottles now!

Retail Price:  I received a 1oz sample of each product, but full size price is $19.99 each (or $29.98 for both)

Overview

This isn’t a bad subscription box.  I actually can and will use everything I received.  The only item I’m “meh” about is the Model Co eyeliner only because lasting power just wasn’t there.  Lower lid usage is a no go since it started smudging shortly after applying it.  Upper lid wore fairly well though.  Everything else is a welcome addition to my cosmetic family.

Price for Beauty Box 5 Subscription Box: $12.00 per month

Where to Sign Up: Beauty Box 5 Website

You can also follow Beauty Box 5 on Facebook for more information as well as questions you may have!

My box would be only $12.00 from Beauty Box 5, but the contents retailed at over $36.00 – that’s a great deal!

Will you be signing up for Beauty Box 5?  I’d love to hear your thoughts!

  1. As well as students are liable to include the ways for which business are imposed to
    pay different taxes. Your accountant should be referring business to you and you to other businesses.
    If you owe a lot more than $10,000 or you still can’t afford to make the payments with an installment agreement then move on to amount

  2. It’s there and has to be dealt with, because there are few
    things worse than a pair of leaky waders. Do not make the mistake
    of cutting down the tree yourself or hiring a regular tree removal
    company to do the job. Charley was the inquisitive one but Chad was the one bold enough to ask the questions.

  3. However, this diet is kind of controversial as the reviews about its effectiveness are mixed and somewhat
    puzzling. The average HCG dieter experiences rapid weight loss averaging 1 to 3 pounds per day, most aim to lose 30 pounds
    in 30 days. 4pt; mso-para-margin-top:0cm; mso-para-margin-right:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:10.

  4. Although HCG is only produced by females, HCG
    is an effective way to drop excess excess weight for the two genders.

    Emphasis of this program is getting rid of unsafe
    carbohydrates out of one’s every day diet plan. The HCG diet is
    a diet plan comprising of the intake of HCG with a diet plan that
    was created by ATW Simeons almost 60 years ago.
