Beauty Box 5 Review - June

I got my June Beauty Box 5 today!  Woo hoo! 
Beauty Box 5 is yet another monthly beauty box that I subscribe to.  This one is $10 and you get 4-5 different beauty samples each month. It is $10 a month if you get a 3 month subscription. I really think I am going to start doing that since I’ve gotten this box for probably 6-8 months!
I have to be honest, this month I was a little underwhelmed.  I mean seriously, this box was boring.  Usually, this is a pretty darn good one, so I’m bummed.
So here we go….June’s Beauty Box 5!

1)    Coolway Cool Cleanse Shampoo– 1 oz (travel size)
Shampoo?  Really?  This stuff better be awesome! The card says it is protein-rich and is made with Porphyra Seaweed. Don’t know how I feel about seaweed! The only thing good about this is I am going on vacation in a few days and this will be great to take along. Oh, and it smells pretty good.
Full Size: $25.00 for 8.6oz My Value: $2.80ish

2)    Coolway Cool Cleanse Shampoo– 1 oz (travel size)
Again….really? This had seaweed in it too. I guess it’s nice that they put both shampoo and conditioner in there so I can try them together.
Full Size: $25.00 for 8.6oz, My Value: $2.80ish

3)      Aveeno Protect + Hydrate Lotion/Sunscreen -  0.5 oz (travel size)
Um, lotion? Boring!  At least it is sweat and water-resistant.  I guess I’ll be using this on my vacation too. It has SPF 30 which is nice, but definitely not strong enough for the Arizona sun!
Full Size: $9.99 3oz My Value: $1.66

4)      Just Being Sexy Body Bronzer – 8 ML or .27oz (2 packs)
Hmmm. Body bronzer.  If I am not in a pageant, what is this for?  I’m honestly not sure.  Is it like a self-tanner?  It says that it gives you a perlesque sheen.  Seriously that’s how the card in the box spells it, I think that is wrong. Yet more thing to try on the beach during my vacation I guess! Wait, I just read the back of the package. It says to use GLOVES to put it on and to wait 5-10 minutes before putting on clothes and 6-8 HOURS before showering.  What?!? Who has time for that?
Full Size: $49.00 6oz My Value: $4.41ish

5)      Brazen Cosmetics Eyeshadow in Commando – .18oz (FULL SIZE)
I think this is the only thing that is worth it in this month’s box.  It’s a pretty pink mineral eyeshadow.  I will definitely be using this!
Full Size: $7.99  My Value: $7.99

Final Cost: $12.00
Final Value: $19.66

Can you say fail?!?  What a terrible value compared to all of the other awesome subscriptions out there.  Bad Beauty Box 5. Bad.

I will give this a few more times and if they don’t step it up, I’m done.

Not sure that you would, but if you’d like to give it a try…..use my referral link?  Pretty please?  :)

(The Beauty Box 5 website has been down for quite awhile....I will add links when I can. So if you are interested, please come back!)

  1. Found you through Meet and Greet. New follower. I really don't get any followers from these hops so I hope you will.

  2. New follower from meet and greet...

    Sounds like a fun way to try new things, but I have to agree with you.. the eye shadow is about the only thing that got my attention. I hope next month's box is better. :)

  3. Just stopped by from the meet & greet! New follower, I love these box subscriptions though this one does seem a little lame compared to some. My favorite lately has been an exchange called foodie pen pals where you can exchange boxes of local foods with someone else randomly assigned, generally about $15 worth. A great way to try new foods and share it around:) If your interested I have a link under blogs I heart on my blog here:
    I am running giveaways all week as well if you have a moment to enter, in honor of my Etsyversary:)

  4. New follower! What an honest review. I love an honest blogger. Can't wait to read more...such a cute blog!

  5. It's too bad that they don't ship to my country. None of the beauty box does :'(

  6. First things first- LOVE the new design!!

    I've never heard of this beauty box...but it doesn't seems like anything spectacular. Boo.

  7. Great products! And amazing review:)
