I recently heard about Beauty Box Five through another blogger, and I knew I needed to give it a try. I had been a faithful Birchbox subscriber up until last year, and I also tried Ipsy and a few other product subscription boxes. I was ready to be WOW-ed after recently lackluster boxes from previous companies before.
I received a box about two weeks ago. Shipping was quick, and the box arrive undamaged.
While I thought the box felt light and seemed smaller than other boxes I’ve received, I was going to let the products speak for themselves.
I was happy to see that there was five items in the box. Since the price starts at $12 for one month or $30 for three, I think the value has already been seen. If you purchase three months at a time, the monthly cost is just $10. I think everything in the box is worth at least $2, so I am already going to say that the value has been met.
Here is the eyeshadow pot opened up. The shade is not one that I have since I usually have sparkly browns or purples. I thought the pigment was adequate, but I would have preferred a punchier shade. I will probably use this as a base, so it will be useful to me.
Of course Beauty Box Five includes a card with all the product information and retail pricing of full size versions of the products.
Overall I thought the nail file was a nice addition, but it wasn’t anything special. I can never have enough nail files, so it is useful. I loved the hot pink hue of the nail polish, and I’m sure I will burn through this mini bottle before the month is over. Who says hot pink is just for summer?! I have also never used Nubar products before, so I am happy to try.
The eyeshadow will be a nice basic to add to my collection, and I have never used Be a Bombshell brand before. The lotions will be fun to try, but I do not anticipate buying the full-size versions.
Overall I am pleased with the surprises inside my Beauty Box Five. I think I will renew my membership and see what others goodies this company has in store for me. Sometimes the anticipation of the boxes is worth the membership price!
