I am one of those people that start my Christmas shopping as soon as October starts. I really like to think about what my family would like and start looking for deals. My husband is the same way so he has already been asking me what I would like this year. I told him a few things that I wanted and one of them was a beauty subscription box. So when I was able to try the Beauty Box Five, I was excited to see if this could be a possible match for me.
Beauty Box Five is a monthly beauty box subscription service. Every month you will receive four or five product samples. The samples are all beauty related so you can expect makeup, skin care items, hair and nail products, etc. They have three different kinds of subscriptions(monthly, quarterly, and yearly) and you can even give one to someone as as gift. One month is only $12!
First of all, the box itself is really cute! There is something about that Tiffany blue color that every woman loves. I opened my box and expected to find small samples of all the products. But actually, three out of my four products were full sized!
My box included:
~Smith's Rosebud Salve-Full Sized
~It's a 10 Miracle Styling Serum-Two sample packets
~Supergoop! SPF 30+ UV Lotion for Body & Face-Sample tube
~pur-delicate Gentle Soy Milk Cleanser and Makeup Remover-Full Sized
~Lavera Eyeliner-Full Sized
The first product I tried was the Supergoop! SPF 30+ UV Lotion for Body & Face. I was outside with my daughter when I realized that she didn't have any sunblock on. I used this on her and was really satisfied. She didn't get any sort of sun on her skin and it didn't leave her with that weird sticky feeling that most sunblocks have. It is also very water resistant which is great for my daughter. She is always sweating so it is important that it will keep her safe from the sun.
Next up, I tried Smith's Rosebud Salve. At first I wasn't sure how I could use this. But after reading the back, I found that you can use this for just about any skin issue. My elbows and knees are really dry so I put a little on it. It was really moisturizing and it smells fantastic! I have been using this on my daughter's occasional diaper rashes. It is so gentle yet it is still really effective.
It's a 10 Miracle Styling Serum was one of my favorites. I usually don't like those little packets of hair product samples. However, when I tried this I loved it. It left my hair super shiny and smooth. My hair was frizz free and felt great. I only used a tiny amount and it really went a long way. This is one product that I am buying for sure!
Have you ever wondered what it would feel like to wash your face with milk? Pur-delicate Gentle Soy Milk Cleanser and Makeup Remover gives you that feeling. The product is creamy, milky goodness. My face felt amazingly soft after I used it just once. The soap doesn't lather so it feels like more of a lotion. It rises off easily and left my skin feeling great for an entire day! Another new must-have!
Lavera Eyeliner was also great! I have a problem sometimes with eyeliners making my eyes itch and water. I need an eyeliner that is really sensitive. This eyeliner goes on really smooth without any clumping. Normally, I only use black eyeliner but I really liked this color as well. It is a great fall color!
Overall, I really liked my box! It was a great value at only $12. I estimated the products in the box to be about $25 worth of products. I liked all of the products even though I wouldn't normally buy some of them. This is a great way to discover new products!
