Beauty Box 5- On the Fence...

So I received the cutest box ever in the mail today (well, Birchbox's shipping box is pretty stinking adorable as well).  It was my brand new Beauty Box 5 box.  Here is what it looked like:


The Inside



Insert Card:
Apparently if you complete the Beauty Profile, you will receive custom boxes in the future.  We will see how that goes.  So many services say that they use your profile to choose your products, but very few actually do.


Comodynes Self-Tanning Towelette
Value: $2.12
I received this product before in a GoGo Girlfriend box but gave it away because self tanners frighten me to be honest.  I have read a lot of reviews since then and am thinking I will be trying this one out on myself.  If I end up looking like an Oompa Loompa, I will be sure to let you know!!!


Priti NYC Soy Nail Polish Remover wipe
Value: $1
Look for this product in an upcoming giveaway as well.

Rosebud Salve
Value: $7
Perhaps my favorite product from the box.  Although I am not sure how much I will actually use it, I am excited to try it out and leave a review for you guys later.  It says you can use it on lips, cuticles, blemishes, etc.  Hmmm.... I am having trouble seeing myself putting it on a blemish, but then again, what do I know?!

Teenie Tiny 
Weleda Hydrating Day and Night creams
Value: $6.97 
(I don't see how.  Must be amazing products)
I am looking forward to trying these out, but are you kidding me???  They could have stepped up the sizes a little.
 

See what I mean?  My nail polish is bigger than these munchkins are!


All in all I was not super impressed with this box.  I signed up with a buy one get one free promo, so at least I have a free month next month to give them another shot.  I have a feeling if it is the same quality as this month, it may be my next monthly subscription to go.

Total Box Value: $17.09
Box Cost: $12

  5. Hi, thanks for following love.laugh.read! I'm following back. I'm obsessed with beauty products, so I'm so glad that I found your blog. Rosebud Salve is one of my favorite beauty products, I use it on my lips, or if I have a dry patch of skin, once I used it on my son's diaper rash (gross I know), but it actually worked. They make it in other flavors too, Mocha Rose is my favorite! I look forward to reading more!
