August Beauty Box 5 Review

August's Beauty Box 5 had a theme I can really get behind: Pampering in Progress! They sent some great skincare and hair care items this month.

*Disclaimer: This box was sent to See, Shop, Love! in exchange for an honest review.

Beauty Box 5 sends five deluxe samples and full-sized products for only $12 per month. Items can include anything from skincare, color cosmetics, haircare, and accessories and tools. Shipping is free to U.S. addresses and $3 to Canada.

This month's box had four full-sized products. I've found that Beauty Box 5 always sends a good amount of full-sized items.
  • Global Beauty Care Retinol Spa Treatment Mask ($7.50, full-sized) - This sheet mask has retinol (obviously), which reduces fine lines and wrinkles while boosting cell renewal. I know sheet masks are great for your skin, but I've said in the past that I just never take the 20 minutes to relax and sit still to use one!
  • Did. Hair Spa Day Hair Ties ($6.50, full-sized) - This set has three hair ties with cute designs: cucumbers, "Chill Pills," and a zig zag pattern. I like these types of hair ties because they don't leave a bump in your hair. 
  • Olive Natural Beauty Elixir ($18.18 for 1.01 fl oz) - A full-sized bottle of this is 2 fl oz and costs $36, so this is a great value! It's an all-natural oil that can maintain firmness, even tone, and promote cell turnover.
  • VO5 Hot Oil Therapy Treatment ($2.59, full-sized) - This tube is single-use and will detox dry, damaged, and overprocessed hair. My hair is highlighted and heat styled on a daily basis, so this will be a great way to keep it healthy.
  • Nika Facial Exfoliating Brush ($17, full-sized) - I love this brush! I actually used it before taking these photos because I was so anxious to try it, which is why it isn't fully dry in the photo above. It's super soft and removes makeup really well.
I also received a bottle of Rave Unscented Hairspray, which was not included on the info card. I'm assuming this is a bonus item? I hope it was in everyone's box!

Bottom Line: Four out of the five items this month were full-sized, and the one that wasn't was still a very high value. The bonus hairspray is a nice addition, too. I think August's box had a great variety of products to help you enjoy an at-home spa day!
