I know you guys think I am crazy about all these boxes, but I did decide to try one more box this month just to see what else is out there.
I purchased Beauty Box 5 for $12 – no tax or shipping.
My address was goofy in their system, so this box took about 3 weeks to get to me.
On all of the other beauty box sites I subscribe to, they give you a total run down of the product in your box and ways to shop for it. When I received my box, it just had a thank you note included, but no information on what the products actually were, if I was receiving any full size product or even what the prices of these products would be if I wanted to purchase them. That was kind of a bummer because I don’t really know the benefit of these products.
I liked their marketing, I thought it was a cute box.
Here’s what I got:
Psssst! Dry hair shampoo – I already received the exact same thing from Beauty Army a few months ago.
H20+ Marine Calm Restorative Eye Creme .13 oz – I love eye cream so this will be fun to try.
Blum Naturals Pro Age Daily Cleansing Towelette – 3
Ferro Cosmetics – Sheer Crystal Veil. This is a mess waiting to happen. It is a (very small) jar of minerals that I can just see going everywhere! It is supposed to make you glowing and dewy. I wore it tonight and didn’t feel like it did anything.
ELLIS FAAS Glazed Lips – I think this is a full size twist up lip gloss, but there is no color listed so I don’t want to open it – if it’s not my color I would like to pass it along. Oh what’s a girl to do… another beauty dilemma.
While all of this was nice, the box left me a little cold – not personal at all and maybe I’ve gotten a little spoiled with Birchbox at only $10 and Beauty Army at $12 – both of them make me feel like it’s my birthday when I open a box. This just didn’t have that special touch that I have experienced with the other boxes.
Conclusion: nice, but not for me. This will be a one shot box.
