In an effort to try out some new boxes, I ordered Beauty Box 5 last month. I’d heard of them of course and read a few reviews, but I didn’t know too many specifics. As a result ,I was excited to check the June Beauty Box 5 out when it appeared today.
Beauty Box 5 ships via USPS First Class Mail and it took 3 days to arrive from Texas. For whatever reason I expected the box to be bigger? No idea what I based this on, I just thought it would be. It’s smaller than even a Birchbox I believe.
I loved this first look because I recognized nothing. I have never tried or even heard of any of these products. And that’s what I love about subscription boxes. That you get to discover new things.
~Coolway Cool Cleanse Shampoo and Coolway Cool Hydrate Conditioner($4.76): I’m always down with trying new shampoo and conditoner (I usually have 2-3 going in the shower at any time) and this is no exception. It’s suppose to reduce breakage and frizz and give you a more polished look overall. It doesn’t have much of a smell though, which kind of disappointed me. I like a good smelly shampoo!
~Just Being Sexy Body Bronzer($6): At first I thought this was just another bronzer, but after a closer look, this appears to be a fancy bronzer! It smells good (yay) and from the test patch I did, it appears to be a great colo. I’mgoing to just go for it and try an entire packet tomorrow!
~Minxxette Brush Hanger($4.69): When I first saw this, I wrongly assumed it was a brush holder for like hairbrushes! Not so much. It’s for cosmetic brushes, which makes way more sense. You can stick this to a wall or mirror and then out your brush in it to dry. Probably much better for the brush than just rubbing out on paper towels to try it!
~Shea Terra Organics Rose Hips Black Soap Facial Cleanser($4.50): I tested this out tonight and I really liked it. You leave it on your face for 5 – 10 minutes while it works to cleanse your face. I love the waiting period on products like this. It makes me feel like they work better!
All totaled I came up with a value of $19.95 for the June Beauty Box 5. While it’s a value for the price ($12/month), I wasn’t wow’ed by it. I am excited about trying all the products in the and may stick around for July to see what they have in store for us. If they had a point system similar to Birchbox, I’l certainly be all over this box!!
