Beautybox5 May 2012 Review

 Beautybox5 is the latest in my quest to try every beauty sampling service I can get my greedy little hands on.  I think personally that not all the boxes are going to please everyone. They all have something different to offer and you have to give several a try to find the right fit.
Beautybox5 is still a new company. In June Beautybox5 will be 6 months old. As with all new companies there were some hiccups that have been worked out and their boxes only seem to be improving.  Beautybox5 is $12 a month, $30 Quarterly ($6 Savings) or $100 Yearly ($44 Savings).
“Beauty Box 5 is a glamorous package delivered monthly to your door with 4 - 5 samples of your favorite beauty brands. From makeup and fragrances to skin care and hair care, BB5 has you covered!”

            So what did I get in my May Beautybox5?
  • Evie Evan Firm and Repair Throat Crème Mini $25 Value! Firm your throat, jawline, and décolletage all while reducing puffiness. The Firm & Repair Throat Crème is a treatment perfect for sagging contours and aging skin.
  • Tree Hut Shea Butter in Hawaiian Kukui Deluxe Sample Approx. $2.28 Value (smells so good) Luxuriate in the infusion of organic shea butter, cocoa butter, and safflower seed oil. This extra thick body butter seals in moisture, giving you rejuvenated skin with a healthy sheen. Natural Hawaiian Kukui nut oil repairs cracked skin and provides deep moisturization.
  • It’s a 10 Miracle Hair Mask Sample Approx. $1.56 Value The Miracle Hair Mask from It's a 10 turns your locks up to 11! This high-performance mask gives you detangling, frizz reduction, vibrant color, and amazing body all in one. Just work through cleansed hair for one to three minutes and then rinse - in no time, you'll see more manageable, shinier, softer hair.
  •  It’s 10 Miracle Styling Serum Sample Approx. $1.47 Value No matter your style, get a flawless finish every time with It's a 10's Miracle Styling Serum. Whether your goal is bouncy curls or flowing straight locks, this serum is the solution for you. It protects hair from heat styling and environmental damage with naturally-derived ingredients like argania spinosa kernel oil (a hair-softening antioxidant), noni fruit oil (which improves elasticity while repairing damage to the hair shaft) and castor oil copolymer (moisturizes and provides deep conditioning).
  • Comodynes Self Tanning Towellete Sample Approx $1.75 Value Practice safe sun and get a natural healthy looking tan with Comodynes Self Tanning Towelettes. For best results, exfoliate the day before application to remove dead skin cells to ensure an even luxurious glow.
  • 3 Merlot Moonlight Radiance Samples Value unknown Apply nightly to face, neck and chest area after washing and toning skin. You don't have to reserve this little jewel strictly for night. Felicity's Tip: When you're feeling a little dry or your skin is a little less than luster-ful just mix a little of the Moonlight Radiance Night Cream with your favorite toner (for a thinner texture) and apply to the areas where you need a little love
                          Total Approx Value: $36.06

I love it when a subscription service gives you what you paid for and then some. Which is definitely what Beautybox5 has done with their May box. I’m very happy with the items I received and love that these are all brands that I have never used, which is the whole purpose of a sampling service right? One thing I would have liked to see is some makeup in the box.  BeautyBox5 seems to have delivered on exactly what their website says they provide, “4 - 5 samples of your favorite beauty brands. From makeup and fragrances to skin care and hair care”.  I like this; it’s refreshing from a monthly beauty sampling service.
