Beauty Box 5 review June, 2016


Beauty Box 5 is a subscription-based, beauty sampling service that delivers 5 deluxe samples and full-sized products to your door every month.


The Goods

  1. Brow & Lash Brush – Prestige Cosmetics. Regular price: $3.25


This double-ended tool is essential for any makeup bag! It has one side with bristles to brush unruly brow hairs in to place and blend harsh brow color. The other side can be used to even out mascara and brush out clumps. Very important!

2. Radiance Bronzer & Highlighter – Manna Kadar. Regular price: $24.00


I was so excited to see this! I am the contour queen (self proclaimed), so I love when I get awesome contour makeup in my boxes! This makes the blend from contour to highlighter relatively easy and painless since I can apply both at once. I love it. I already own Manna Kadar highlighter and I love it, so I’m happy to add this to the collection.

3. Oval Contour & Highlight Brush – Sweep. Regular price: $15.00


I was so SO close to buying a brush identical to this on Ebay because the shape was intriguing and I’m always looking for new brushes. I decided against it because it’s ebay LOL, and I’m glad I did because now I have one! My first time using it I was finding it difficult to blend my makeup and I think this is because the bristles are so dense they take in a lot of product and sort of cake it on in a perfect line that’s hard to blend. With a little more practice it is more useful, just be careful with this one.

4. Gradual Tanning Moisturizer – VersaSpa. Regular price: $4.38

Versaspa moisturizing gradual tanning lotion uses a unique blend of green and brown marine algae to moisturize, oxygenate, and detoxify skin for a beautiful tan. It immediately restores skin to a silky and renewed feel while developing a glow. As well as creating a tan and hydrating, it is supposed to blur fine lines. The white color of this lotion made me skeptical, and when I used it I did not notice a difference in my skin tone. I don’t know if it was just so subtle I couldn’t see it or maybe expected not to see it because the color and therefore I didn’t, but either way I didn’t notice a change. I’ve been using it every day though and my skin has held its color from going tanning a week ago so that’s good!

5. Blue Lotus Treatment Sheet Mask – Pur-Lisse. Regular price: $8.00


This fiber mask is infused with Blue Lotus and restorative Asian botanicals! Leave it on for 20 minutes while this treatment improves skin’s texture, delivers antioxidants and leaves a healthier complexion. I normally don’t post pictures of the mask on because it is hideous… but hey, why not?

The box also included a $5 off BeautyBoxShop code.



The items in this month’s box are worth about $54.63. That’s a great value for only $12.00 a month. I’ve only had this subscription for 4 months or so but I’ve noticed a shift from more drug store products to higher end products, like stuff you’d find in ipsy or GlossyBox. I like that, I’m staying subscribed for now :).
