This month Beauty Box Five is all about embracing change and new fall trends! Before I delve into the box let’s review how the service works. Beauty Box Five is a subscription service that starts at $12 for the monthly box, $30 for the quarterly subscription and $99 dollars for a year. In this box you will receive a mix of luxury items and common brands with products for: hair, skin and nails as well as fragrances and beauty accessories. The box contains 5 products and usually includes one or two full sized items. It is a great way to sample a variety of new brands.
Nika K New York Eyelight Crayon: Shade- Violet (full size $4.49)
This brand seems to be a favorite as it has been featured in the subscription numerous times and in the past I have enjoyed the loose pigments and other products from Nika K. Although I’m not a huge fan of shadow sticks I do have a few that are wonderful and this one is made to glide on easy and last. I don’t mind the ultra creamy texture because it makes the color blendable and although the crayon does have a nice smooth formula it doesn't really set. Because of this it can fade, rub off, transfer and smudge and the color pay-off isn't the greatest. I may use this color as a base for other purple shadows.
Natural Style by Fabu Deep Conditioner & Co Wash: (2 sample packs)
Creamy, nourishing deep treatments are my favorite and these travel friendly packs come in handy! “Equipped with repairing oils and shea butter the treatment strengthens to minimize frizz” and is free of parabens and sulfate. You can also use it as a co-wash- (cleansing the hair without shampoo) which is ideal for my naturally curly hair that needs extra moisture!
My Beauty Spot Nail Polish (full size)
The first thing that came to mind when I saw this pretty polish was Christmas! The beautiful red color is laden with shimmer and swirls of gold glitter! It is also formulated to apply smooth and dry quickly which is exactly what I look for in a polish.
Chrislie Formulations 3-in-1 Eye Bright (sample size) & Sally Hansen Toe Spacers ($1.99)
I have reviewed quite a few treatments for darkness under the eyes so I was happy to receive the eye bright serum. Although the tube is a sample size it contains a lot of product and feels refreshing. The serum is formulated to help you through long nights by making the delicate skin around the eyes “smoother, brighter and firmer while reducing darkness and rejuvenating the skin.” I will have to try this out for a while before I can report on the results.
Toe spacers are always great to have on hand and help keep manicures neat and tidy. Since I don’t have any at the moment these are useful and I like the cute design.
Overall this month’s box was okay, I did get some practical products, all of which I will undoubtedly use but I preferred the items last month's box. For more information you can visit Beauty Box Five by clicking HERE.
