Beauty Box 5 - July 2014

Beauty Box 5 is a monthly subscription box that delivers 5 sample sized beauty products right to your door. This subscription costs $12 a month and offers free shipping. I used a coupon code that saved me 100% on my first box. Unfortunately, the code is no longer valid but I will keep you posted if I can find another.

Beauty Box 5 - July 2014

At first glance I was a little disappointed because this will be my third Revlon Bold Lacquer I have received. I am aware this is not Beauty Box 5's fault but I really think Revlon needs to rethink ways of getting their product out to the public. 

Items left to right:

Starlooks Lip liner - $12.00
 I have always been interested in trying the Starlooks brand. I also have not gotten into lip liner much so this will be interesting to try. Starlooks actually offers a subscription box themselves for $15 a month and sends out only Starlooks brand iems.

Body Drench Candy Licious Lips - $3.99
 This instantly brought me back to my childhood. I received the scent lime gumdrop and that is exactly what it smells like. This lip balm leaves no color on your lips but helps moisturize and repair. It has already made it's way into my purse. 

Anna Naturals Glowing Mama Walnut Face & Body Scrub - $10.99
 This product left me a little confused. I love body scrubs but I don't believe I would be able to really use and review this product/company because of how small of a sample I received. This would possibly be a one time use if I even have enough for my whole body and face.

HASK Argan Oil Intense Deep Conditioning Hair Treatment - $2.49
 My hair and scalp have been going crazy sense I have moved to the east coast so I will take any hair oils I can get my hands on. I am sad to say that my scalp has yet to recover from this past winter and needs all the TLC it can get.

Revlon Bold Lacquer Mascara - $7.99
I now have three of these bad boys and still have yet to try it! I guess you can say I am secretly boycotting it because it is all over YouTube and I keep getting them with every box. With that said I really need to suck it up and give this a try because I have heard it is amazing!

Total Value: $37.46

Over all I was not thrilled with this box, there are other boxes that are only $10 a month and seem to offer better products or better sized products. I feel bad because I did receive this box free of charge but I have canceled my subscription. I feel that if I am going to be paying monthly (even if it's only $12) I want to be over the moon excited to receive the products every month and I don't feel as if this was the right fit for me. I will continue to try out new subscription boxes and let you know my findings.
