Let’s see what’s in the May 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!
May’s theme was “Summer Date Night” and the info card listed all of the items in the box, as well as photos, descriptions, and retail prices for each one.
Nanacoco Jumbo Eye & Lip Pencil ($5.50)
This jumbo pencil can be used as an eyeshadow, liner, or dusted on top of lipstick for a metallic finish. While I absolutely love this pretty blue shade, I’m not quite sure I could rock such a bold/young look. (Damn, that’s depressing!)
A long-lasting liquid lipstick formulated to last all day, into the night. Subscribers received a variety of shades, with mine being “Mulberry” — a deep plum/burgundy color. It dried quickly and needed a very good scrub with a makeup remover wipe to come off completely. Staying power, indeed.
A dual-texture body scrubber that’s suitable for all skin types — even sensitive. It comes with a cool “smart label” that fades to let you know when it’s time to replace it.
A versatile highlighting pencil from Jelly Pong Pong. Use it as an eyeshadow base, highlighter, or concealer. For an instant wide awake look, apply it to inner and outer corners & blend, or place it along your waterline.
This vanilla coconut cream lip conditioner is made with all natural ingredients including sunflower oil, beeswax, fair trade cocoa butter, organic vanilla flavor, mongongo oil, and organic coconut flavor. The label says that you can use this on not only your lips, but also hands or dry nose & cheeks.
De La Cruz Arnica Salve (Bonus)
May’s box also include a bonus item! — A mini jar of arnica salve to use on dry, cracked skin.
According to the info card, all 5 items in May’s Beauty Box 5 were full size! And there was even a bonus item. 😀 The total retail value (not including the bonus) was just over $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! No coupon code needed.
