Nicka K New York Eyelight Crayon (FULL SIZED!)

This creamy shadow stick glides on easy and adds a bit of color. You can smudge the color with your finger, or a brush, to get a smokey-eye effect. You can also blend it all the way out to a full-lid base.

Retails for $4.49!

My Beauty Spot Nail Polish (FULL SIZED!)

These polishes have incredibly bold color! It has a very thick formula that glides on smooth. It dries SUPER fast too!

Retails for $4.16!

Revlon Bold Lacquer Mascara (FULL SIZED!)

This mascara doesn’t only deliver volume and definition… Thanks to its lacquered formula, it actually lifts your lashes, leaving an eyelash curler useless! No smudging. No flaking. No worries!

Retails for $7.99!

Natural Style by FUBU Deep Conditioner and Co-Wash (1 oz.)

 This deep conditioning co-wash is equipped with 8 repairing oils and Shea butter. This treatment strengthens hair to minimize frizz, and contains no sulfates or parabens. It can be used as a co-wash for curly hair, and as a deep conditioner for all hair types.

This 1 oz sample size retails for $1.20..

Sally Hansen Toe Spacers (1 pair)

I found these to be very uncomfortable. They were marketed as cushiony, but I found them to be very stiff.

Retails for $1.99..

The final retail value of the September Beauty Box 5 comes to $19.83! Considering that the box costs $12 per month, I wouldn’t call it much of a steal. If I were to recommend Beauty Box 5, I would advise you purchase the full year subscription for $99. That would make each box $8.25 per month, which is a MUCH better deal!

I received their free August box and was surprised by how tiny the box was! I don’t know how they fit the products in there, but they did. You have been warned (lol)

Small box addressed, now let’s get to the good stuff and see what was inside!

First impression? I can’t get past how tiny it is! But it does look pretty cute..

image

 

Each Beauty Box 5 comes with an info card that lists each item inside and some useful information about each one, including full size retail values! 

 

 image

Novex Brazilian Keratin 1.05oz packet

Value = .63 cents

The info card says to massage this intensive treatment into your hair after shampooing, leave in for 25 minutes, then rinse out for smoothness and shine..

Full size retails for $19.50 for 2lbs

image

 

La Fresh Travel Lite Makeup Remover Wipes

8 wipes value = $3.35

These wipes are said to remove makeup from eyes, lips and face and are free of parabens..

Full size retails for $19.99 for 48 wipes

image

Nanacoco Lip Gloss in Mysterious

FULL SIZE! Value = $3.99

This lip gloss is definitely full of pigment and is said to have Vitamin E! Although the info card states that this gloss has “no stickiness attached”, I have to disagree.. This is comparable to putting on a nicely pigmented pink glue stick.. Just my humble opinion.. 😉

image

Style Essentials Nail Polish

0.25 oz value = $1.75

This polish is advertised as a pretty dash of color with a fun finish.. I’m thinking not. This really isn’t my color.. The polish itself is very thin and transparent, but easy to apply..

Full size retails for $7 for the 4 Nail Polish Collection

image

Purlisse Pur~protect SPF 30

.5oz value = $16.17

Although this sunscreen is said to be non-greasy and won’t upset sensitive complexions, it pretty much was the opposite.. It not only irritated my face, but was also very very greasy.. Definitely not good for my combination skin. 

Full size retails for $55 for 1.7oz

image

 

Ultimately, it is a cute box.. I have no use of sunscreen at the moment, am against keratin products, and seriously dislike the nail polish.. BUT the wipes are perfect for my purse and the lip gloss is super pigmented and long wearing.. 

 

The overall value of the August Beauty Box 5 was $25.91.. So for $12, you really do get your money’s worth. I’m not sure this box is geared towards women though. I would more likely suggest it for a teenage girl..
