I am not quite sure what I am going to do about Beauty Box 5 yet, I am honestly not really getting super excited about the boxes anymore just because it seems to be the same stuff each month. I will keep it at least until the new year and then decide then.
I had seen some unboxings and I was so happy because one of the items was my favorite deodorant, Secret and if you know the Secret that is in the box you know its over $6. So getting a free one would have been nice. Sadly I didn’t get it but this is what I did get.
This is what I got in the November Beauty Box 5. Lets get into the unboxing shall we.
Blum Oil Absorbing Facial Tissues. I haven’t used oil blotting papers because I don’t find I get overall oily but I am wiling to give these a try. They retail for $2.99 for 50 sheets. I did try this out and it does absorb oil from your skin.
Montagne jeunesse Glacial Face Mask. I have used numerous face masks from this company and I really like them. This is one I haven’t tried yet and its the Glacial Clay Spa in the scent crushed Artice Cloudberries. I will be using this very soon I am sure. This retails for $2.49.
I love Aveeno so I was pretty happy to see this sample in the box. Its the Aveeno Positively Nourishing Calming Body Wash. Its in the scent Lavendar, Chamomile and ylang-ylang. I think this would be something I would use when I was feeling stressed and just wanted to relax. The full size will retail for $6.99 for 16 fl oz. I got a 2 fl oz bottle. This smells really good and when I opened it I noticed that I wasn’t feeling so stressed so this could be something I would buy.
This month seems to be the month of be a bombshell as you can tell from previous unboxings. This time around I got the eye crayon and its in the shade Angel Eyes. Its a white shimmer. Its got a glossy finish. It blends really nice and this could possible be a great base to your eye. This retails for $14.00 and this is the full size.
Finally the last item is from Bellapierre Cosmetics Shimmer Powder. This is in the shade Exile. This is another full size item and retails for $14.99 for 0.08oz. I would say that this is a shimmery lilac color. Its not really dark as you can see in the swatchs above so perhaps its pinkish purple. This would probably be perfect to wear on a night out or over the holidays. I am not a big fan of the loose powders but I have to admit that I will play around with this to see what will work and what won’t work.
One thing I really like about Beauty Box 5 is that you do get quite a few full size items and as you can tell I got four full size samples. Which pays for the box which is always nice to see that you get your moneys worth out of these subscriptions.
