Beauty Box 5 was a box I signed up for on a whim, after reading a stellar review on another blog. I wasn’t exactly disappointed with my box, but it wasn’t stellar either, so this is the only one I’ll be getting – I’ve cancelled my subscription after one month. At $12.00/month for the same general amount of product as a Birchbox or ipsy, I just wasn’t impressed. That’s not to say that someone else might love it though!
My favorite item out of the box is definitely the lotion. I’m not usually a huge lotion fan, especially when it’s scented (I prefer to stick with a nice thick Gold Bond lotion) – but this Tree Hut Shea Extra-Rich moisturizing lotion is fabulous, and it’s the perfect size to keep in my purse. Not so small that I’ll run out after 2-3 uses, and not so large that it takes up too much precious space in my purse.
LA Fresh travel nail polish remover wipes – will come in handy, but it’s nothing I haven’t seen before.
The h20 aqua firm eye lift concentrate and the Brazen eyeshadow will just not get used. Maybe I’ll throw them in with the Cravebox for whoever wins the giveaway!
My least favorite item is the h20 spa sea salt body wash. It worked fine, but the smell of salt while I was trying to get clean wasn’t what I was expecting or hoping for – I guess I like to stick to the more traditional lavendar, soapy smells.
