Beauty Box 5 Review - July 2013 - Beauty Subscription Box
How Much? $12/month, $30/quarter, $99/year
What's in it? 4-5 samples from your favourite beauty brands
July marks the half way point of my year long subscription with Beauty Box 5. While BB5 isn't my favourite monthly subscription, I do look forward to receiving the cute blue box every month. This month the box shipped July 22nd and arrived to me August 7th.
Product card & coupon code
Jean Pierre Cosmetics - Nail Polish Remover Wipe (2 wipes, $0.80)
Never worry about cracked or peeling polish again with these travel-ready, pre-packaged polish-removing wipes!
This is the third time in 6 months BB5 has included a product from Jean Pierre Cosmetics. Polish remover wipes are always handy to have, but I am a huge fan of Julep's wipes. No other brand I have tried has ever lived up to Julep.
La Fresh - Travel-lite Antibacterial Wipes (8 wipes, $1.99)
Spreading germs & bacteria is definitely a touchy subject. That's why we love these travel-friendly bacterial wipes!
Wipes of any kind are always great to have. I like to keep a pack tucked in my purse and work bag for unexpected sticky situations. This is the fourth La Fresh product I have received from BB5.
Airelle - Age Defying Facial Serum (0.25/7ml ounce sample, $45)
One product that tightens, firms and smooths the skin?!?! Reduce fine lines and encourage new cell growth with this unique formula that helps reverse and prevent the signs of aging!
Maybe my math is wrong but this sample is worth a lot! The card says a full size bottle (0.85/25ml ounces) is worth $158! I double checked the website just in case the product card had a typo. I'm definitely using this one. Sounds like a miracle in a bottle!
Every Beauty - Foot Smoother (Full size, $8.99)
This handy little scrubber restores skin's natural softness by removing rough, dry, cracked skin through a dual textured dermabrasion coating.
This is a great product to include for flip flop season.
Be a Bombshell Lip Gloss in Hot Mess (Full size, $14)
Offering long-lasting color and high shine, Be a Bombshell's lip gloss can go from sheer to full coverage with just a few coats.
Wow is this ever red! Not my colour but it's a great product so I will gift it to my sister. I'm really glad to see BB5 partner with a new cosmetics brand. I hope we see more from Be a Bombshell... but not too much more.
My July edition of Beauty Box 5 contained five products valued over $70! This is the highest value Beauty Box 5 I have received to date. I'm quite happy with this box, especially since there are three new brands included. I hope BB5 continues with this trend. I have 6 months left in my subscription!
