Beauty Box 5 April 2014 Review

*I was sent a box to review, but was not compensated further.  All opinions and run-on sentences are 100% mine.

You guys know the drill by now, so let’s dive right into the review.



1. Jergens 3 Days To Glow Moisturizer, Medium/Tan
Ehh, this is a major miss for me. I’m not big on tanners, so this will go on my swap list. I will say, the sample size is pretty good for foils (you can’t see, but it’s 3 foils that size).

2. Blum Naturals All Purpose Cleansing Wipes, Citrus scent
I think this might be a perfect encapsulation of me being a grown-up, because this is the product in the box I’m most excited about. It’s a little can of wipes! It has a KEYCHAIN! I seriously am ridiculously excited about this, which I think proves I’m old.

3. Nicka K New York Hydro Lipstick
The formula feels nice, but the color is just way too coral-y on me. I’m bummed, especially since it’s a full size lipstick, but this one will go on the swap list.

4. Bonne Bell Lip Definer
I don’t know that I’ve ever owned any Bonne Bell makeup, though I’m a long time fan of their Lip Smackers. Sadly, this won’t be my first either. The liner is both a bad color for me, and too hard for my liking. Swap list it is.

5. BH Cosmetics California Collection Sampler Trio
I actually got this in a previous subscription box. I loved it then, and I love it now. Because it’s a dupe, it’ll go on my swap list, but only because I already have and love it. The colors are lovely, and I like the formula a lot.

This box was bigger on the misses than the hits for me. I think this is one of the only boxes I’ve gotten from Beauty Box 5 that I was disappointed in when I opened it, and have stayed disappointed about. Luckily, next month is another month, like all my sub boxes, but this one was just not for me.

Beauty Box 5 is a subscription-based, beauty sampling program that delivers a box filled with 5 cosmetic samples to your door every month. It is $12/month, $30/Quarterly, or $99/annually.

Someone gave me their BH Cosmetics California Collection Sampler Trio and I love it! This is actually a good reminder to pull it back out and put it into rotation. I get so much, I forget what I have.
