November Beauty Box 5 Review

Well, it took a little longer than I thought, but my November Beauty Box 5 finally arrived.  Was I excited with what was in it this month.  Check it out...

What is Beauty Box 5?
Beauty Box 5 is a monthly beauty subscription box that offers 5 deluxe samples and full-sized products.  They send you a mix of makeup, beauty accessories, hair, skincare, fragrance, body, and nail products.

What it costs? 
Beauty Box 5 is $12 a month.  They also offer a three month and twelve month subscription.  I did subscribe to the three month offer as the boxes were only $10 a piece.  Check it out here.

COUPON:  Use "FreeBox1" to get a free box with your subscription.

Each month comes with a card explaining each of the products.  The theme for November was Gracefully Grounded.

First glance...Not so thrilled so far.

Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash - 1.8 oz 
I am never excited when I get sample sizes like this.  I can use them for traveling, but still..I can get these for myself and they are just not exciting.

HASK Macadamia Oil - 18 ml
My hair is already to oily, so I do not like using extra oils in my hair. I know it should not matter, but it is more of a mental thing for me I guess.

Laura Ashley Body Butter – 1.75 oz 
This was ok, but still not something I was thrilled about.

Nicka K Eye Crayon
Really??  This is the same item I received in my free box.  It is a different color, and I did like it, so it is an ok item.

DenTek Floss Picks and Case
It is really sad when this made the box for me.  I love having floss in my purse for when I am on the go, so this will be nice for the three uses it provides.  Yes, only three uses.

Overall, I am very disappointed in BB5 this month.  Most of these items I can get myself for less than $1 a piece.  There was not a single item I was excited about.  Come on BB5, get your stuff together!

  1. I recieved the exact same box. I had cancelled this box, then resubbed to try them one more time for the free box and cancelled again after this fiasco. I think I will be leaving BB5 alone for awhile.

  2. Me too! I had a special deal to get a 3 month sub, so I still have 2
    more to come. I already cancelled after those though. I am just not
    happy with them so far. They have 2 more months to really WOW me.
