Beauty Box 5 October 2013 PLUS, a Sneak Peak at November!

DSCN0367Got my Beauty Box 5! I love this beauty subscription box! If you haven’t already head of BB5, it’s a monthly subscription service based out of Austin, TX. Beauty Box 5 contains 5 beauty samples (with the occasional full size product) for $12 a month. One of the unique things about BB5 is that you can save some serious cash by signing up for longer subscriptions. You can pay the $12 a month OR you can pay as little as $8.25 by choosing the yearly subscription! With the yearly plan, BB5 is the cheapest box of its kind of the market, but you’d never know based on what’s inside!

DSCN0403Here is a peek at what’s inside this months box! My favorite thing about BB5 is that variety! They really cover all ends of your beauty routine in one little box!

DSCN0372Up first is a favorite from Aveeno! We received a 1oz size of their Daily Moisturizing Lotion! This is a sample value of $.87


I actually had the chance to try this product a few days before my box arrived and I have to say, I’m so addicted! The large, 12oz bottle retails for a thrift $6.99 and is worth every penny! Like many products from the Aveeno line, this lotion contains oatmeal. I remember the first time I smelled an Aveeno product and thought how calming and comforting the smell was, this oatmeal smell is now something that goes along with silky, soft skin. My oldest son has eczema and this lotion has been the best thing for his skin condition.

DSCN0375Next was my FAVORITE product in the box. I received a full size Lipstick from Model Co! There was a small variation this month. You could get this lipstick, a lip gloss OR a lip and cheek stain. I was most hoping for this lipstick so I literally jumped for joy when I saw I got this one! This retails for a whopping $17! So far, I’m really loving the creamy formula and the color is perfect for the Fall without being too brown.

DSCN0386The shade is called “Sunset”

DSCN0382The packaging even had a built-in mirror for easy on-the-go application.


DSCN0390Here is a swatch.

DSCN0391Next we got a set of glitter toe dividers. I don’t use toe dividers all the time, but I LOVE these! I’m sure I’ll be using these more because who doesn’t love glitter. These are by Swiss Co and retail for $2 a pair. I think this would make a great stocking stuffer!


We also received an 8ct. pack of LA Fresh Facial Cleansing Wipes. My first impression of these is that they smell SO, SO good! I’m already a huge fan of LA Fresh wipes, but I’ve not tried these yet. I’m really excited to have these handy. This is a sample value of $3.33

DSCN0399Lastly, we received a mini Glitter polish from Nubar. First of all, I love glitter. Second, this is their newest collection so I love that we’re getting these glitter polishes just as they hit the market! This is a sample value of $4

DSCN0401Overall, I received $27.20 worth of goodies! I really thought this box was a great mix! We received some skin care, some nail stuff and a great cosmetic staple! There isn’t a single thing in this month’s box that won’t get used! I can always count on BB5 to pack their boxes with wonderful brands, whether they’re National brands or up and coming brands. Plus, they tend to work with the really great brands more than once! So, if you get a product from a brand you really enjoy, you can sample more of their range through BB5. A great example of that is the Sneak Peak I have for next month!!

DSCN0580Beauty Box 5 sent me a little care package and emailed me a little entail on next month’s box. We’re be sampling another Aveeno goodie and this one is by far my favorite! Everyone who receives the November BB5 will be sampling the Aveeno Positively Nourishing Calming Body Wash with Lavender, Chamomile and Ylang-Ylang. This body wash smells AMAZING. The Lavender stands out the most but I can certainly smell the chamomile and slight oatmeal fragrance as well. It smells good enough to eat, but does it really calm and nourish. I have to say this body wash not only calms me on an aroma therapy level, but it’s calming on my skin as well! I tend to use my body wash in lieu of shaving gels or creams because, well, I can. sometimes this leads to ingrown hairs or razor burn, this body wash is so gentle that it even left my with soft, shaved legs. I’m glad this comes in a hefty 16oz bottle and it will only cost you $6.99! This will be a repurchase for sure AND since I’ll be getting next months box, I’ll have the perfect travel size for the upcoming Holidays! Be sure you’re subscribed so you can try this one too!

    I just got my first BB5! I got the Model Co lip pencil/plumper (so…even more Model Co lip options than they said there’d be!). I was really impressed with the variety, too, and the fact that it’s definitely a higher value than the cost of the package. Yay! Thanks for the sneak peak in November’s box. 🙂

    That lipstick with the mirror on it is awesome! I’ve been wanting to try Beauty Box 5 so I’m glad you reviewed it. Have you tried Glossybox yet? I’ve heard that one’s the best as far as getting legit samples and not drugstore stuff // tiny samples // all perfume.
