Beauty Box 5 Review - January 2014 - Beauty Subscription Box

What is it? Beauty Box 5 
How Much? $12/month, $30/quarter, $99/year  plus $3 shipping per box 
What's in it? 5 samples from your favourite beauty brands 

This Beauty Box 5 shipped January 8th and arrived  January 20th. January marks the end of my year long subscription to BB5. It's a bit of a milestone as it also makes a year since I started my foray into subscription boxes.

First look

The theme for January is "Cheers to you!" and is full of items to help you stick to your beauty resolutions and help you feel bright, shiny, and smooth.  

The product card also includes a promo for a new movie staring Zac Efron coming out January 31st. It's called "That Awkward Moment". The card on the right includes a note from the makeup head from the movie. BB5 also included a free gift from the movie, which you will see at the end of this post.

Swissco Bath & Shower Exfoliating Gloves ($5)

Epic Blend Hemp Coconut Lip Balm ($3.39)

Jergens Daily Moisture (1 fl oz,  $0.33)

 H2O Plus Spa Sea Lotus Body Wash (1 fl oz, $1.36)

Nubar Cuticle & Nail Oil (0.25 fl oz, $5)

Mirror Compact - Bonus Product (~$5)

The January Beauty Box 5 included six products instead of the usual five. Even with the extra product though, this box has an extremely low value of just over $15. I think this is the lowest value BB5 I have received in my year with them. There are no cosmetic products this month, but I don't mind the bath and body products I received and will likely get use out of all of them. I am still undecided about whether or not to renew my BB5 subscription. I have one more month to decide because I am scheduled to get the February box free from referral credits.

What do you think of the January Beauty Box 5?

  1. We have the same box, down to the colour of those gloves, but again they forgot to include the product card in mine. I really hope the anniversary box is awesome. I know we'll be getting the nail polish duo - not too exciting (to me). I hope there's more full size products.

    1. Same box again! We might as well just merge blogs! haha
