June Beauty Box 5 unboxing time!
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. Each box will consist of a mix of both full and deluxe sample sized products — five in all. Items can include makeup, beauty accessories, hair, skincare, fragrance, body, nail products, and more. 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.
Subscriptions are $12/month, or less with multi-month commitments. Shipping to US is free (Canada, add $3).
Let’s see what’s in the June 2016 Beauty Box 5 box!
As always, everything was shipped in a small box with the Beauty Box 5 logo on the front.
June’s theme was “Made in the Shade”. An info card listed all of the items in the box, as well as photos, descriptions, and retail prices for each one.
Sweep Oval Contour & Highlight Brush ($15) – I’ve gotten lots of makeup brushes in subscription boxes, but none like this! Ideal for dusting on highlighter, blush, or bronzer, this oval brush makes blending and shading a breeze. The bristles are super soft and I’m guessing (hoping) they’re synthetic/vegan-friendly.
Manna Kadar Radiance Bronzer & Highlighter ($24) – FULL SIZE. A 2-in-1 pan of velvety highlight and bronzer — ideal for using with the brush above. I personally don’t use highlighter/bronzer, so this will be going in the swap pile.
Pur-Lisse Blue Lotus Treatment Sheet Mask ($8) – FULL SIZE. This natural fiber mask is infused with blue lotus, white tea, and Asian botanicals to deliver beneficial antioxidants & minerals to your skin. The formula also fights free radicals, improves skin texture, and firms to make skin appear more youthful. Just remove the sheet from the package, apply to face, and let sit for 15-20 minutes. No need to rinse — just massage the remaining product into your skin.
Prestige Cosmetics Brow & Lash Brush ($3.25) – A simple tool for brushing unruly eyebrows into place and evening out eyelashes for smoother mascara application.
Versaspa Face Moisturizing Gradual Tanner (~$4) – Designed for all skin tones, this facial moisturizer instantly hydrates skin, blurs fine lines, and creates a gradual tan. The formula is paraben-free, gluten-free, and cruelty-free.
Another impressive offering from Beauty Box 5. With the exception of the gradual tanner, all of the items were full size. Very cool. The total retail price for June’s box was almost $55!
