July 2017 Beauty Box 5 review time! — Finally. (This box arrived in late August.)
If you’re not aware, Beauty Box 5 is an affordable subscription box that delivers 5 deluxe samples and full-sized products right to your door every month.

Featured brands will range from luxury, to drugstore, niche, eco-conscious, and even vegan-friendly. The total retail value will always be higher than the cost of the box.

Let’s see what’s in the July 2017 Beauty Box 5 box!
As always, everything was shipped in a small box with the Beauty Box 5 logo on the side.
A peek inside!
July’s theme was “Let’s Get Lost” and the info card listed all of the items in the box, as well as photos, descriptions, and retail prices for each one.
This long-lasting lip & cheek crayon easily glides onto your cheeks or lips, leaving a highly pigmented semi-matte finish. It’s infused with quince extract and argan oil to give your skin some extra vitamins & hydration. The formula is paraben-free and vegan-friendly.
A professional strength hair masque infused with argan oil and wheat protein to help promote hair growth & protect against future hair damage. To use, apply right after shampooing, leave on for 5 minutes, then rinse out to reveal healthier hair.
Various shades of this long-lasting eye liner were sent to subscribers, but I was happy to receive good ol’ basic black. Black pearl, to be exact. Its gel-like formula glides on smoothly and promises to stay on all day without needing any touch-ups.
Manna Kadar’s shimmer lotion is an incandescent liquid that lights up the skin with an all-over radiance. Mix with your favorite foundation or wear alone to achieve a youthful glow and dewy finish. Can be used on face and body for an all-over glow.
A full size, chip-free polish in the shade “Copacabana Coral”. While I do think it’s a pretty color for summer, I wish the formula was 5-free/vegan. I guess subscription boxes have spoiled me when it comes to “cleaner” nail polish brands.
Cut that Crease BB5 Brush (Bonus!)
To make up for the delay in shipping, Beauty Box 5 also included a bonus crease brush in July’s box.
While their shipping issues have been a little annoying, July’s Beauty Box 5 had an impressive value as always. My favorite items this month were the black eye liner, hair mask, and nail polish. The total retail value (not including the bonus brush) was roughly $50! — Remember, for a limited time new subscribers will get a FREE Elizabeth Mott Eyeliner in Glitterati in their first box with a purchase of a subscription!
