Time for my September 2016 Beauty Box 5 unboxing!
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 September 2016 Beauty Box 5 box!
As always, everything was shipped in a small box with the Beauty Box 5 logo on the front.
A peek inside.
September’s theme was “It’s So Hard Not to Play Favorites” and featured a selection of staff picks. An info card listed all of the items in the box, as well as photos, descriptions, and retail prices for each one.
Simple Skincare Cleansing Facial Wipes (~$2) – These soft cleansing wipes gently lift dead skin cells leaving skin revived and revitalized. They also remove waterproof mascara without the need for harsh chemicals.
Pur~Lisse Blue Lotus Essential Daily Moisturizer SPF 30 (~$16) – A daily moisturizer that includes the protection of broad spectrum SPF 30. It promises to absorb easily without any white tint left behind. Beneficial ingredients include blue lotus, white tea, soy protein, algae extracts, and Vitamin E.
Happy Brands Happy Hair Turban ($18) – I couldn’t find this online, so I’m not quite sure how it works… The info card just says “twist, loop, and dry your hair in a snap”. I’m guessing those more familiar with hair turbans will be able to figure it out?
Go Smile Teeth Whitening Gel (~$4) – According to Amazon, this is intended to be used with the “blue light whitening toothbrush”, but hopefully it still yields results on its own. For a (possibly) brighter smile, just use this in equal amounts with your regular toothpaste (all on the same brush) and brush for two minutes twice a day.
Be a Bombshell Smooth Criminal HD Finishing Powder ($7) – A translucent powder that can be used to set foundation for longer wear, mattify skin, and even out complexion. It’s made of pure silica and is safe for all skin types.
Another high value box from Beauty Box 5! Even though I probably won’t personally use it, I did like the inclusion of the neat hair turban. The total value for September’s box was almost $50!
