May 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 May 2016 Beauty Box 5 box!
Everything was shipped in a small box with the Beauty Box 5 logo on the front.
A peek inside.
May’s theme was “Mer-May-d”. An info card listed all of the items in the box, as well as photos, descriptions, and retail prices for each one.
Appeal Cosmetics Luxurious Lipstick in Crush ($29) – FULL SIZE! A bright, bold coral lipstick that’s highly pigmented and long-lasting. I’ve never heard of this brand, and honestly I was a little surprised by the $29 price tag… Especially after seeing the far from natural ingredients list (it’s definitely not paraben free). Ah well, either way it’s still a high value item.
Elizabeth Mott You’re So Fine Liquid Liner in Glitterati ($18) – FULL SIZE! This liner has crazy good reviews on Amazon so I’m excited to try it. It’s a black liquid liner with a subtle glittery shimmer that’s both waterproof and smudge-proof.
Mystic Tan Mocha-Kyssed Bronzer Lotion (~$5) – A bronzer lotion that gives you a dose of instant cosmetic color, while gradually building a natural tan. The formula is cruelty-free, paraben-free, as well as gluten free. I don’t use tanning products, so this will go into the swap/sell pile.
Glamour Dolls Mermaid Lashes Splash Proof Mascara ($4.99) – FULL SIZE! A cruelty-free mascara that (like the liner above) is both waterproof and smudge-proof.
Briogeo Rosarco Milk Reparative Leave-In Conditioning Spray (~$4) – This lightweight leave-in conditioning spray is infused with rosehip, argan, and coconut oil to hydrate dull, dry hair. It also acts as a barrier against UV rays and can also be used as a heat protectant prior to blow drying or using heat tools.
Another high value month from Beauty Box 5! There were 3 full sized products and the total retail value was about $60. Nice!
May 2016 Beauty Box 5 Review
I’ll probably only use 2 of the products included in this month’s box, but I still consider that a win… The total retail value of just those 2 items is over $20, so you can’t go wrong when the whole box is only $12!
