August 2014 Beauty Box 5 - Review and Unboxing

Beauty Box 5 is a monthly subscription box that costs $12 US per month + $3 shipping to Canada. If you sign up for longer you get a lower price per box: $30 quarterly, and $99 a year.

I signed up for Beauty Box 5 when they had a promotional code for $12 off a year - so I got a full year for $87. This worked out to $97.60 Canadian with the exchange rate so $8.14 a month.

Here is a look at my August 2014 Beauty Box 5:

This month's theme is "Radiant and Remarkable" and is all about "embracing beaming skin, dazzling lips, and lustrous locks to keep your glow going".

Here is a look inside my box:

Queratine Brasileira Brazilian Keratin Novex Extra Deep Hair Care Cream ~ 1 packet (30g) $4.99. A deep conditioning treatment - leave in hair for 25 minutes. The reviews look really good and I'm excited to try it - I will use this on a girly bubble bath night!

La Fresh Travel Lite Oil-Free Makeup Remover Wipes ~ package of 8 for $2.49. Said to take off make-up fast & works even on waterproof formula  - designed for sensitive skin. While these aren't the most exciting product - these are great for any travel!

Nanacoco Lip Gloss in "Caramel Latte" ~ full size $3.99. Neutral color with a shimmer finish - said to have no stickiness attached. Here is a look at what it looks like on me:

Unfortunately, this is not my favorite color - I would prefer not to wear glosses lighter than my natural lip color, it washes my skin out.

Pur~lisse Pur~protect spf 30 daily moisturizer ~ sample size 15ml for $16.50 (full size is 50 ml for $55). Pur~lisse is everywhere in subscription boxes (I have received this is FabFitFun and Ipsy). I can't complain too much - this is a good formula and I will use this!

Style Essentials Nail Polish ~ $1.75 for a 7ml bottle ($7 for a pack of 4). So this is a clear polish with white and green textures. I have a similar one but in black - I like that I got a light color one! 

So for $8.14, I received $29.72 worth of items. (Even if I had paid the full price of $15 this box would still have a great value!). I like the mixture of nail, hair, and skin care. The only item I will not use is the lip gloss, as it is too light for me. Everything else is great!
