Beauty Box Five July 2014

This month Beauty Box Five is celebrating important events including: graduation, your first pair of heels and “finding the mascara you can’t live without.” I was very happy with the variety of items included in the box which incorporated products for skin, lips, hair and lashes. 

First let’s review how the service works...

BeautyBox 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 brands 
and products.

First up is the Hask Argan Oil Intense Deep Conditioning Hair Treatment – retail value: $2.49

This is not my first experience with this conditioner; since I have naturally curly hair I have to maintain the moisture balance by doing weekly deep treatments. Although this pack is only enough for one application it is great for those who need to restore and smooth dry hair. I love the scent and along with argan oil it also contains collagen, keratin protein and silk amino acids that help strength your tresses. The directions suggest leaving it in for 10 minutes but I usually leave it in for about 30.

Revlon Bold Lacquer Mascara (full size) - retail value: $7.99

I have seen this mascara popping up in drug stores all over Toronto and I have been curious to try it out! The great thing about this subscription is that it gives you the opportunity to try some of the newest products on the market. I’m looking forward to building up my lashes with this ultra black, lengthening and volumizing formula. The mascara eliminates the need to curl lashes by lifting them!

Anna Naturals: Glowing Mama Walnut Face & Body Scrub- sample jar

This exfoliating scrub is vegan and contains no parabens, harsh chemicals or artificial fragrance. It has very fine exfoliating beads that leave skin soft and supple with a natural, citrus scent.

Starlooks Lip Liner in the shade Tickle Me Pink- retail value: $12.00

I have  more pink lipstick than I know what to do with and this liner will match many of them! The color applies bold and works well with a lip primer for longer wear.

Body Drench Candy Licious Lip Balm- retail value: $3.99

I am a fan of anything that keeps my lips healthy and hydrated and if it smells good enough to eat even better! This balm smells like a sweet grape lollipop and is infused with coconut oil and vitamin E.

Overall this month’s box was great! You can check out this subscription by clicking HERE

  2. Great content! Could you believe I own only a single lip liner? haha :D I really should invest in them, but every time I want to get one I see something else so I get that instead thinking that I won't be using the lip liner so often =))

  3. I really need to try this Argan Oil out!! I keep hearing good things and I actually think I've gotten some in one of these curlboxes! Either way, I've been thinking about breaking down and washing my hair this week, but we'll see!

  4. that mascara looks pretty cool - i always like trying out new drugstore brand mascaras.

  5. This was a pretty well-rounded box! I love use conditioning treatments with argan oil on my hair. I've never left them in for more than 10 minutes, so I can only imagine how soft your hair is after 30!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I love hearing from all of my amazing readers. Have a wonderful day!
