November 2014 Beauty Box Five Review + Coupon


When I first started my journey down the subscription box path, there were a few key boxes I knew I had to try. Boxes that offered pratical but fabulous samples at a monthly price I could afford. One of those just happened to be Beauty Box 5.

If you don't already know,  Beauty Box Five,  who very kindly sent me this box for review,  is a $12 per month beauty subscription service.  Every month subscribers receive 4-5 deluxe samples (and very often full sized too!) That fit the current monthly theme. They typically send drugstore or mid tier products but that hasn't ever bothered me!


This month it's all about staying 'Gracefully Grounded'. Let's face it, my dolls... November is the beginning of that oh so stressful holiday season. We get in such a rush that we forget to take a little time for ourselves. BB5 is making things a tad easier for us by giving us 5 essentials to keep us looking and feeling fabulous throughout the day!


I personally have never really been dissapointed with my first look in my BB5 box, however, I know many people have. There were some slight product variations this month's box but I personally find all the items I received fit into the November theme really well.


Nicka K New York Eyelight Crayon --- eyeshadow sticks are always a must have for me. So many parties and social functions happen this time of year that I have to have a little sparkle shadow to keep my eyes touched up. I'm a fan of the Nicka K brand already and this crayon is no exception!


DenTek Floss Picks Case --- If I have to nitpick anything in the box, it would be this. From the pratical standpoint, this is fantastic and will most certainly be used. However, I can understand some people's frustration about it. It's a very useful product but not one I like to see in a subscription box!


HASK Macadamia Revitalizing Shine Oil --- I'm over the moon about this one! I sampled the HASK deep conditioner in a previos BB5 box and adored it. This is a great size and isn't the least bit heavy on my fine hair!


Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash --- Another product of contention among subscribers but if there is any drugstore brand I don't mind getting, it's Dove. It's ultra rich formula feels amazing and keeps my skin wrapped in moisturized softness all day.


Laura Ashley Italian Lemon Body Butter --- Totally my favorite item! This is such a nice rich formula and the scent is pure heaven. There were scent variations and I'm over the moon pleased that i received this particular one... I'm addicted to this smell. BB5... my nose thanks you kindly!

While this was not my favorite Beauty Box Five ever, I was still quite happy with the products overall. Each item is very useful and I guarantee that a few of these will be staple items in my bag this season!
