Beauty Box Five April’s Box

Try It Before You Buy It!



***I received this product for free for the purpose of review. All opinions are my own. This post contains affiliate links.***

   I love going to the mailbox and finding a surprise inside!  Especially when that surprise is from one of my favorite monthly beauty box subscription services, Beauty Box Five! 


   For those of you who are not familiar with this service, each month for the low price of $12, Beauty Box Five will send you four to five samples of make up, skin-care items and other beauty-related products.  Well, they call them samples, but really they are more like travel-sized items if you ask me!  The products are made by top-of-the line companies such as Blinc, Tree Hut, Everyday Minerals, Nu Me, Cetaphil and many more!  What better way to know if a product works for you than to try it before you buy it?  And Beauty Box Five helps you do just that!

   March was the first box I received, and it had some amazing products!  If you missed my review, you can see it by clicking HERE.  Right now, I cannot wait to show you what came in this month’s (April’s) Beauty Box Five! Are you ready?  Check it out!


La Fresh: Instant Body Soother  $9.99 for 24 wipes

   I received two packets of these eco-friendly/biodegradable soothing wipes that have an incredibly soft texture and are wonderfully cooling, soothing and refreshing thanks to the peppermint essential oil and five other natural oils.  These wipes are perfect for wiping away stress, fatigue and that worn-out feeling you get in the middle of a stressful day, as well as for cooling off on a hot, humid day.  Simply open a single-use packet, and use on your temples, neck, shoulders, legs and anywhere else.




Minxxette:  Brush Hanger   $4.69 (small)

  This is my favorite item from this month!  Truly ingenious and incredibly handy!  It is a make-up brush holder that you use to hang your brush to dry after washing.  It has a suction cup on the back so you can stick it onto your bathroom mirror, or you can use the hook and hang it from your hand-towel rack or other handy spot.  The brush handle fits snugly into the holder where it remains until you remove it.  You can use the hanger to hang other items, too, such as your washcloth, jewelry, headbands and more!  The hangers are available in two sizes: small and large, and they work very well!  I love it!



Jean Pierre Cosmetics:  Oil Absorbing Tissues  $1.99 50 sheets

   These oil absorbing tissues are perfect for soaking up that annoying shine that appears halfway through the day without smearing your make up.  Using one sheet, gently blot around your forehead, nose, chin or wherever else you want to get rid of excess oil and shine.  The sheets come in a handy dispenser that fits perfectly in your purse, make up bag or pocket.  They do feel similar to the tissue paper you use for gift bags, but their actual texture against your skin is smooth, not rough.  They do an excellent job of removing excess oil and other impurities which can cause blemishes, leaving your face shine-free!  A great idea!



Model Co.: Illusion Lip Pencil   $20.00

   This is one of the most unique lip liner pencils I have come across as it is really a lip enhancer.  It is a unique skin colored pencil which enhances your lips by creating the illusion of fuller lips!  It is a soft wax that applies easily, and stays on a long time.  It is formulated from beeswax, carnauba wax, cocoa butter, and shea butter so it nourishes your lips while you wear it! 



Brazen CosmeticsEye shadow in Birthday Suit  $7.49 0.18 oz..

  Brazen Cosmetics are all made with beneficial ingredients such as organic minerals, oils, extracts and vitamins.  Their vegan eye shadows come in a great selection of unique, bold and daring, long-lasting shades, all of which are custom-blended.  The sample I received, Birthday Suit, is a matte cocoa color, that has the barest hint of a sparkle.  Like all of their shadows, it is intensely pigmented, so a little bit goes a long way!




Like what you saw? 

   I know I love everything that was in April’s box, and I cannot wait to see next month’s box!   Each month’s box includes a card that tells you about each product as well as tells the product’s retail price.  So if you find a product you love and want, you have a pretty good idea of how much it will cost.   

   If you want to join in the fun, join Beauty Box Five by clicking the link below.  There are three different subscriptions, and the longer you subscribe for, the more you save!  Boxes ship mid-month.

  • Monthly for $12, due each month
  • Quarterly for $30, due each quarter (save $6)
  • Yearly for $100, due once a year (save $44)

Wow $12 a month is really reasonable for all the stuff you get to try out! I really liked the eye shadow because it's a subtle color but has a sparkle to make it stand out. I'm definitely going to look into Beauty Box, thanks for the info!

Thats is a great box of samples for the price. I am always afraid to try the box subscriptions because you never know if it is going to be work it or not..

That seems like a pretty great deal!
I used to subscribe to a beauty box and can say that it wasn't as good as this one seems

I love monthly subscription boxes. Since I only wear light eye shadow, liner and mascara, this probably isn't for me, but I KNOW it is for 98% of the other women out there!
