April Beauty Box 5 Review

Temperatures are finally reaching the 80s here and the extra sunshine means time for tans! Sunless tans, that is. The April Beauty Box 5 features great gold products to keep you shimmering for the upcoming summer!

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

Beauty Box 5 costs $12 per month for $35+ in products. Shipping is free to the U.S. and $3 to Canada. Each month you'll receive deluxe samples and often full-sized products ranging from skincare to hair care to color cosmetics, and more.

New subscribers will receive a free full-sized Marsk eyeshadow in their first box!

Gold is my favorite color when it comes to cosmetics. Gold eyeshadow, gold bronzer, I just love the way it looks with my skin tone. Naturally I was very happy that April's theme was "You're Golden!"

This month's box featured four full-sized products. Beauty Box 5 always does a good job of sending quite a few full-sized items each month. Here's what was inside:
  • Be a Bombshell Blush ($6.00, full-sized) - Assorted colors were sent and I received Cougar, which is a great brown shimmer. I'm probably going to use it as a bronzer instead of a blush because it's very similar to the one I currently use and that one is almost gone.
  • Did Hair Gold Bobby Pins ($8.50, full-sized) - I have black hair so these gold bobby pins will stand out great as a simple accessory. 
  • Beauty Box 5 Highlight Fan Brush ($12.00, full-sized) - I've never had a fan brush before so I honestly had to look up how to use it. It's a great way to add a dash of highlighter or a soft layer of blush or powder foundation.
  • Jean Pierre Vitamin-C Sheet Mask ($2.60 for one mask) - This mask has vitamin C to lighten dark spots and for anti-aging. I don't use sheet masks because I can never sit still for long enough (usually they say to leave it on for 15-20 minutes), but I'll give this to a friend who will.
  • Sweep Rose Gold Lash Curler ($15.99) - There have been a few Sweep products in recent boxes and I've really enjoyed them. This curler is nice and sturdy and I love the rose gold color! It grabs my lashes and gives a nice dramatic curl.
Be a Bombshell Blush in Cougar
Bottom Line: The April "You're Gold" Beauty Box 5 gets an A+ from me! The total approximate retail value was $45.09. I couldn't find a listing for the fan brush, Did Hair bobby pins, or Sweep curler but regardless I think this box had a great assortment of items; I especially love the Sweep curler and Be a Bombshell Blush!
