Beauty Box 5 December 2013 Review

Oh no! My Beauty Box 5 January box arrived today which means I’m super late writing about my Beauty Box 5 December box… so here it goes. To be fair, I only got it about two weeks ago when I got back from vacation, but I was still pretty slow and just generally still playing catchup with the blog although I have so many exciting products at the moment that I really have to get better about sharing them. For now, here’s a subscription box.
beauty box 5 december
Beauty Box 5 is a box I have a yearly subscription to that I really like because it is affordable, gives a mix of items, and getting mail is fun, basically. You get a yearly sub for $99, and if you decide to sign up I’d be really grateful if you used my referral link (here). You can also go month to month for $12, or get 3 months for $30. Lots of savings to be had.

beauty box 5 december 2I got a great batch of items this month and although I haven’t really started using them yet I was quite happy with the selection. Here’s what showed up in my Beauty Box 5 December box!

beauty box 5 december 4
Body Drench Hemp Moisturizing Daily Lotion ($1.06)

I’m honestly not a huge fan of the scent of hemp, so I’m not sure if I’ll be using this myself (I haven’t tried it yet) but it is a good purse/portable size and it would have made a cute addition to a stocking or gift because of its packaging. I am always okay with receiving a little more lotion.

beauty box 5 december 3NYX Cosmetics – 3 Color Shadow Palette in Mo Rockin Beats ($6)

I really like NYX from what I have tried so far, so I was really happy to get a full sized trio from them in the Beauty Box 5 December box, but I actually think I might try swapping this or giving it to a friend. I’m sure the quality is great but the shades are pretty boring and I probably don’t need more eyeshadow, I am feel a little overwhelmed by all my makeup at the moment and don’t think I need to add anything else to the collection, especially since I don’t know how much use I’ll get out of these colours (I saw one that had a khaki green it in instead that I would love loved).

beauty box 5 december 8Clean & Clear Morning Burst Hydrating Gel Moisturizer ($1.17)

Another moisturizer! Well I lied, definitely different from the lotion because this is meant for your face. I haven’t tried it yet, and it’s not an overly exciting brand, but I will definitely use it in the future.

beauty box 5 december 7Ofra Cosmetics Lip Gloss Plumper in Sultry  ($12.95)

This is a full-sized lip product (double bonus) from a brand I haven’t tried before in what looks to be a pretty colour. I’ll save it for when I get a little more itchy for something new while staying away from purchasing anything else. Always happy to get products like these that exceed what I spent on the Beauty Box 5 December box all on its own.

Sam Villa Brush Cleaner ($4.95)

This is kinda a weird product but honestly probably what I was most excited about in the whole Beauty Box 5 December box. Crazy, I know, but I have a really hard time getting hair out of my brush and I wanted to see if this could help (and a friend told me it could). It’s actually the only thing in the box I’ve tried so far, and yes, it works. It’s not 100% magic but it does make a huge difference so I’m glad they sent it out and I’m probably going to keep using it in the future. It’s always fun to get something you never knew you needed but are glad to have!

So that’s it for my Beauty Box 5 December box. The value was just over $25, so not bad, and I thought it was a fun mix of beauty tools, makeup, and skincare. Overall, I know I don’t need any subscription boxes, but I get a lot of enjoyment and fun out of Beauty Box 5, and given the price, I can definitely see myself renewing it in the future if they keep the boxes like this!

Have you tried Beauty Box 5 before? Let me know what you think of this subscription!
