Beauty Box 5 September Review

I'm squeezing this review in the last day of the month! But forgive me... it's been a crazy month for me! I have lots of exciting news, but I'll wait until another post to share that. 

Beauty Box 5 is a subscription-based beauty sampling service. They deliver a box to your door of 5 samples and full size products. You get a mixture of makeup, beauty, hair and nail care products. It's a lot of fun to recieve a box of make up each month!

Nicka K New York Eyelight Crayon (Gold)
This is a little eye crayon. The color is very rich, but it's a bit oily. I tried to use this as an eye shadow but it eventually gathered in the creases of my eye lids. I figured it would, so I wasn't too upset. I really like the color, and I use it as an eye liner. It is really sparkly and as an eyeliner it lasts a pretty long time. I wouldn't use it as an eye shadow again. 

Natural Style by FUBU Deep Conditioner & Co-Wash
I'm always happy to recieve deep conditioners each month... it's keeping my bleached hair on the healthier side. This month it's two small samples of leave in conditioner. I read the back label and wasn't too excited about some of the chemicals in there.. So I may not be using these too much. 

Sally Hansen Toe Spacers
My Beauty Spot Nail Polish

This item is something I'm not totally wild about.. I absolutely hate things between my toes, so I may not use the toe spacers very often at all. I loved the color of the nail polish though, but found it's not too long lasting. 

Revlon Bold Laquer Mascara
This is the same one I got last month, so I'm not too excited about it. It will be good to have on hand in case I run out. 

This month's box was a tad bit disappointing as many of the items felt like fillers that were thrown in, rather than actual items or new samples. But I can't complain too much because these are still useful items and good to have around the house. 

Does any one else have a subscription with Beauty Box  5? What did you think of this month's box? Each box is a bit different so I'm interested to know what you thought of yours!

  1. Yes Rachael, I got the exact same box, just different nail color. It was my first box ( I joined because of your review)and I was mostly happy with it too. I don't do toe nail spacers either. I also joined ipsy, which is $10 per month and it came with better stuff.

  2. Maybe I'll give Ipsy a try! Thanks Betty!

  3. Just a thought: If you use an eye shadow base first, the gold might stay put. Worth a try.
