February Beauty Box 5 Review

Happy 4th birthday, Beauty Box 5! I've been reviewing their boxes for quite some time now (maybe two years, maybe more?) and they get better and better with each month. February was no exception!

*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 a month! In my experience, usually at least half of items are full-sized. Shipping is free to U.S. addresses and $3 to Canadian ones.

In honor of their fourth birthday, February's box was filled with items to help you sparkle on! One item was even custom made for BB5.

  • Hemp Nation Kiwi-Mango Body Wash ($7.99 for 2 fl oz) - The info card has this listed as a full-sized item, but I think that might be a misprint. It appears that a full-sized bottle is 8 oz. Anyway, this smells delicious! Kiwi and mango are two of my favorite scents.
  • Manna Kadar Beauty 3 in 1 in Fantasy ($19, full-sized) - This is definitely a full-sized item and I love it! I've used a few other Manna Kadar products and they're good quality. The shade goes on lighter than I expected it to (see swatch photo at the end of this post), but it's a great highlighter.
  • Epic Blend Hemp Premium Lip Balm ($3.49 for .15 oz, full-sized) - I received the "Raspberry Pomegranate" flavor. I don't remember the last time I had to purchase a lip balm because I get so many from subscription boxes, but I am not complaining! This one is non-GMO, gluten-free, and made with natural ingredients.
  • Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later Eye Shadow Primer ($9.71 for .17 oz) - I'm almost out of eye primer so I'm excited to give this one a try. It has a waterproof formula to help shadow stay all day long.
  • Starlooks Custom Lip Liner in Sultry Sangria ($16, full-sized) - BB5 teamed up with Starlooks to create this exclusive shade just for the box! It's a pretty mauve/pink that will work well with a lot of lipsticks that I have.
Bottom Line: Without accounting for the Hemp Nation body wash, this month's box had an approximate retail value of $48.20! That's an amazing deal for only $12. I can't wait to see what else Beauty Box 5 has in store for their fourth year!
