Beauty Box Five Review

Hey guys!  I have another monthly subscription box for you guys this morning.  I haven't heard of Beauty Box 5 before, so I don't know how new or old they are.  From the Beauty Box 5's website:

Beauty Box 5 is a subscription-based, beauty sampling program that delivers a box filled with 5 cosmetic samples to your door every month.  Aimed at introducing women to new cosmetic products and educating them on best practices.  Beauty Box 5 scours the market to find the best products for your lifestyle.

As far as the subscription goes, you can pay ether monthly for $12, quarterly for $30 (savings of $6) or yearly for $99 (savings of $45).

First thing I noticed with this box is how CUTE it is!  It's about the size of my hand.  So cute!

The products I got are:

Be a Bombshell Eyeshadow in Bora Bora.  This is a full side shadow.  And it's gorgeous (swatches below).

Swissco Nail File.  This is full size as well.  While it's super cute (it's glittery!) it's too rough for me.  I usually use a really fine grit file for my nails.

H2O Plus Aquafirm + Micro-Collagen Moisturizer.  This is a sample size.  The moisturizer its self is nice, but not the kind I normally like.  Its got a jelly-like consistency, and I like a more creamy consistency.

Bask Heavenly Silk Daily Skin Lotion.  I was SOOOOOO happy to see this in my box!  This is my absolute favorite lotion ever!  And I'm glad to have a sample size I can throw in my purse.

And last but not least is Nubar Nail Lacquer in Hot Pink.  OMG, Nubar has the cutest minis!  So cute!

Here is the card that tell's you a little something about each product.  (Sorry about my pics, I took them late at night, with dinning room lighting...erg....)

Here is a swatch of Bora Bora.  IT.IS.STUNNING!  This color is VERY similar (if not a dupe) of Urban Decay's Deep End, or Flipside.  Both of those colors actually change colors on me (they turn the more green side of teal), so I'm interested to know if this will change colors or not.

This is a nice, affordable box with a wide range of products.  Interested in signing up for a Beauty Box 5?  You can sign up here, or here, or here... : )

**Box sent for review.
