Beauty Box 5 is a monthly subscription service that delivers five beauty or skincare samples to your doorstep for only $12 a month (and the shipping is free)! Ordering recurring boxes gives you an even greater discount.
MaskerAide in Detox Diva: Hydrating Facial Sheet Mask
Full size: $4.99 for one mask
BB5: Full size ($4.99 value)
This was refreshing and fun. I like the convenience of sheet masks but at $5 per application, it's not quite a bargain.
Ban Total Refresh Cooling Body Cloths with smooth powder finish in Restore
Full size: $2.97 for 10 wipes
BB5: 3 wipes (~$0.90 value)
It was unclear what these were supposed to be used for... I thought they'd be like Blum all-purpose cleansing wipes in last month's box, but these are supposedly meant for refreshing the underarm area. They have a very strong "fresh clean" fragrance to them that I wasn't very fond of. I'd rather have a multi-use product with a more generic scent to it than these.
Cattiva Precisione Retractable Waterproof Eye Liner in Black
Full size: $20.00 for 0.012oz
BB5: Full size ($20.00 value)
I was happy that this wasn't dry or brittle--it applied sooo smoothly. It's a slightly greyish black, not a true midnight black, but it's a nice eyeliner. It isn't 100% smudge proof, but I use eye primer all the time and threw on a bit of shadow on top to "set" it.
Harvey Prince "Hello" perfume
Full size: $55.00 for 1.7 fl oz
BB5: Sample spray vial, 0.05 fl oz (~$1.62 value)
This smells nice and fresh and bright. It's a good scent for the warmer months, a little generic still a nice perfume that I'll wear occasionally.
H20+ Aqualibrium Marine Cleansing Gel
Full size: $18.00 for 4 fl oz
BB5: 0.27 fl oz (~$1.13 value)
Unfortunately, this didn't do much for me. It's a very, very, very gentle cleanser, and the little sample doesn't last long because I felt like I needed to use a lot of it to get any results at all. It has a nice faint clean scent to it.
Overall, this box is about a $28 value. The eyeliner and perfume are the products I'm most likely to continue to use and enjoy. Even though I'm not crazy about the other items, the $12 pricetag (with free shiping) still seems worth it.
