Box #4: Beauty Box 5 (BB5) Unboxing and First Impression

Beauty Box Five Logo

My 4th unboxing in my “Beauty Box Dilemma” series! Beauty Box 5 (BB5) is a $12/month subscription box which contains 5 samples, although these “samples” are are far larger than I anticipated. What a great box!

The Verdict on Beauty Box 5

O.M.G. Let me just tell you how impressed I am with this box! They say you’ll receive five samples. Um, no. This box included 3 full size products, one deluxe sample, and one sample that will last a loooonnnnnggggg time.

Watch out ipsy! At a $12/month price point (lower for multiple month subscriptions), Beauty Box 5 is sure to compete. I also feel that BB5 puts a higher quality of products in their subscription box — heck, I received a South Korean lip & cheek stain sample!

The Tiffany teal packaging, the informative item list, description, and price point makes for an ideal beauty box subscription.

Beauty is about perception, not about make-up. I think the beginning of all beauty is knowing and liking oneself. You can't put on make-up, or dress yourself, or do you hair with any sort of fun or joy if you're doing it from a position of correction.
