There are a few things that I am a sucker for. Baby animals, coffee drinks, and glitter are amongst those things. Something else I cannot resist – subscription boxes. I recently had the opportunity to check out the Beauty Box 5 again when the good folks over there sent me the April 2014 Beauty Box 5.

Beauty Box 5 is a subscription box that is beauty themed and has 5 items included each month. Pretty self-explanatory, right?

Here’s what’s in the April 2014 Beauty Box 5

Blum Naturals All Purpose Cleansing Cloths in Citrus – These are made with natural and organic ingredients. Hypoallergenic, infused with aloe, and safe for everyone. I love how convenient these are to take along with you. 30 ct, which is full sized. Retails for $2.49

Nicka K New York lipstick in Begonia – A gorgeous metallic coppery rosy red. It’s like a dark rose gold. Creamy texture, too. It didn’t come off on my glass, either, which is a total bonus! This is another full size item, which retails for $4.99

BH Cosmetics California Collection Eye shadow Trio – I am not a fan of this. The shadows are chalky with little color payoff. I got the same exact sample in another subscription box about 8 months ago, and didn’t care for it then, either.

Jergens Natural Glow 3 Days to Glow Moisturizer – I used to love this stuff! It gradually gives you the appearance of being tan while also moisturizing your skin. I haven’t tried it in a couple of years, so I’m sort of excited to give it another go. This is a very generous 3 day sample.

Bonne Bell Lip Definer Lip Pencil in Apple Cider – You don’t seem to see many lip liners these days. It probably has to do with using mostly lip glosses and lip stains rather than lipsticks. Anyway, this one is a nice creamy texture that is the perfect complement to the Nicka K lipstick in Begonia. Retails for $3.95

You can get Beauty Box 5 starting at $12/mo.  Personally, I would give it a try for the 3 months at $30.

  1. Nice review….I like the color of the lipstick & liner.

  2. Love the products you got, I have had bad experiences in the past with them but it looks like they revamped since I had subscribed to them.

  3. Great review! I’m loving all the products. I really like the Nicka B Lipstick!

  4. I love Beauty Box 5 but they can really be hit or miss. I LOVE the cleansing cloths but… I can’t really see copper colored lipstick looking good on ANYONE it is cool that they included a complimentary lip liner though! You however did an excellent review of the products thanks for the share!

  5. What a great box. I need the extra nudge to try new products. I am usually very set in my ways.

    Eeek! Why do I not have a subscription to these boxes?! I would be like a kid on Christmas morning every single month! Love that liner by the way!
