Beauty Box 5 Review - November 2013 - Beauty Subscription Box
What is it? Beauty Box 5
How Much? $12/month, $30/quarter, $99/year
What's in it? 4-5 samples from your favourite beauty brands
The November Beauty Box 5 shipped on November 8th and arrived on November 18th! That's pretty impressive considering only a few months ago the box didn't even ship until the 18th. The theme this month is "Prep.Primp.Sparkle." and includes products so "you're ready for whatever the night may bring". Since BB5 introduced themed boxes, this is the first box that may actually fit the intended theme.
Body wash. Good for prep. I'm not a huge fan of lavender but I don't hate the smell of this wash.
I enjoy sheet masks so this will be put to use.
I received almost the exact same product in my April BB5, except that one was Jean Pierre Cosmetics... and wouldn't you know it, Blum Naturals is distributed by Jean Pierre Cosmetics.
This is just like the lip crayon I received in my November Ipsy bag, but instead it's an eye shadow crayon. The colour is described as being a "unique blend of metallic black and gold".
This is described as a "sparkly white" mica powder. I will likely gift it to a more adventurous friend.
All totaled my November Beauty Box 5 included 5 products valued just over $35. It's definitely not my favourite box. All five brands are repeat brands and one product is a duplicate from a previous month. Regardless of the "dupe factor", I will likely use at least 3 out of 5 of the items, so that isn't so bad.
What do you think of the November Beauty Box 5?
