Let’s see what’s in the October 2016 Beauty Box 5 box!
Everything was shipped in a small box with the Beauty Box 5 logo on the front.
A peek inside!
October’s theme was “Girl Boss” and featured a selection of products to rock at the office. An info card listed all of the items in the box, as well as photos, descriptions, and retail prices for each one.
Real Her Moisturizing Lipstick ($18) – FULL SIZE. A highly pigmented lipstick that’s described as the perfect marriage of gloss and matte. It’s enriched with jojoba seed oil & shea butter and is free of parabens, sulfates, phlalates, & synthetic fragrances. It’s also Leaping Bunny certified. Subscribers received one of a variety of different shades. — Mine was “Women Rule the World”.
Chella Ivory Lace Highlighter Pencil ($18) – FULL SIZE. This ivory colored pencil is suitable for all skin tones and can be used to brighten inner corners & waterline of the eyes, to sculpt brows, accentuate your cupid’s bow, or even applied under the eye to eliminate dark circles & cover age spots.
Amlactin Ultra Hydrating Body Cream ($2.99) – A triple-action, ultra healing body cream that helps to smooth, repair, and soften severely dry skin. It’s fragrance-free and clinically proven to deeply hydrate.
Emery + Ivory Custom Nail Appliques ($12.99) – FULL SIZE. A pack of 16 custom nail appliques that “stretch and stick with ease”, making them ideal for all nail shapes. Two nail tools were also provided to complete the job.
Colour Me Fragrance in “Red” (sample) – A perfume sample of Colour Me Red, which is described as having a “floral and spicy” scent. I only wear natural essential oil based scents, so this will go into the swap pile.
Yet another high value box from Beauty Box 5! The majority of this month’s items were full size, which is always nice to see. All together, the total value for October’s box was just under $52!
