Beauty Box 5 Review - April 2013 - Beauty Subscription Box

What is it? Beauty Box 5 
How Much? $12 monthly, $30 quarterly, $100 yearly (shipping included) 
What’s in it? 4-5 samples of your favourite beauty brands

My April Beauty Box 5 arrived today. This one shipped on April 15th and arrived May 1st, so just over two weeks. The last two have been three weeks in transit so there's some improvement. Cheers to small miracles!

As always, I peeked at spoilers online so I already knew what to expect. I just can't resist peeking.

La Fresh Instant Body Smoother wipes (2 wipes, $0.85)
Wipe away stress and fatigue with these silky-smooth, essential oil-packed, Eco-Beauty wipes.

I plan to give one of these a try after work tonight. If the wipes actually wipe away stress and fatigue, I'll buy stocks in the darn company!

Jean Pierre Cosmetics Oil Absorbing Tissue (Full size/50 sheets, $1.50)
Eliminate oil, banish blemishes and say goodbye to shine with this handy case of oil-absorbing tissues.

These will come in handy, especially with warmer weather around the corner.

Brazen Cosmetics Eye Shadow in Birthday Suit. (3g sample size, $4.80)
You spoke, we listened. Brazen is back again this month with another shamelessly bold shadow to add to your collection. 

I like this colour better than the dark brown I received last month. It's a light beige. Very natural and similar to the Stila colour I use regularly. I also noticed Brazen improved their labelling.  (Just for info, I weighed this pot to make sure it was a full size product. Brazen advertises their eye shadows in 3g mini size and 5g medium size. This pot, with contents, weighed 6 grams, and since the pot is heavier than the contents, I would hazard a guess that this is the 3g mini size.)

Minxxette Brush Hanger - (Small size, $4.70)
Hang it, stick it, use it. This nifty little hanger makes taking care of your favorite make up brushes easier than ever.

At first I wasn't sure how this worked, until I turned it over and saw the little diagram on the back. It has a suction cup on the back of the device as well so I can stick it to my bathroom mirror. Last month we received Brush Guards to assist in cleaning our brushes and this month a brush hanger. I think BB5 is trying to tell me something.

The back side with diagram!

Model Co Illusion Lip Enhancer Kit. (Full size, $20)
Face it, there's no better pencil for plumping up that pretty little pout.

This lip pencil comes with a built in sharpener in the cap. That's pretty handy. I like using lip pencils to outline so I'm happy to give this one a try.

All totalled, my April Beauty Box 5 had a value of $31.85! That's an amazing value considering this box only cost me $8.33 (with a year subscription). Even at the $12 monthly fee, it's still a superb value.
