Beauty Box 5 Unboxing | November and August 2014

So, I was recently looking around for a new beauty subscription when I came across Beauty Box 5. Actually, every time I went into Facebook there was a "suggested post" with an introductory offer to get a second box if you sign up. Coincidence right?

It did look cute. And it looked like the box would be a good mix of full and sample sized products that would be nice to try.

What they sent me

November 2014 Box

NIcka K New York Eyelight Crayon in NEL007 Bronze, full size
Laura Ashley Body Butter in Italian Lemon
HASK Macadamia Revitalizing Shine Oil 
Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash
DenTek Floss Sticks and Case 6 ct

August 2014 Box

Purlisse Pur Protect SPF 30
LaFresh Travel Lite Facial Cleaning Wipes 8 ct
Nanacoco Lip Gloss in Secret Crush full size
Novex Brazilian Keratin
Style Essentials Nail Polish full size

At first I thought what the heck would I want a summer box in November for? But of the two boxes, it was the best one. To be honest, I wasn't too impressed overall. I was hoping it would be a little more exciting, packed with things that aren't already in my bathroom or my bag.

I do appreciate the small sized samples like the body wash, face wipes, spf and dental case which I can throw in my gym bag or take with us when we travel. 

My favourite items

Nanacoco lip gloss - The lip gloss is a pretty shade and it goes on really nicely It isn't sticky and the packaging is cute!

 Nicka K Eye Crayon - It's a bronze tone that I can't wait to try over the holidays. It swatches really well. We'll see how it wears!

Style Essentials nail polish - I received a super shimmery torquise colour. Surprisingly, I don't own anything like it. It went on really smooth. I have tried it first without a top coat to see how it wears.

Review to come!

I will see what comes in my box for December before I decide whether or not to continue with this beauty box. If you want to try Beauty Box 5, I will leave a referral link below! 

Beauty Box 5 is a monthly subscription that includes five beauty products, It includes full and sample sized products from hair to skin care to make up and apparently dental hygiene as well!

Stay fabulous!
