Beauty Box Five - pics, review

Hello, Beautiful!

I recently was a sent a sample box from Beauty Box Five to review and share with my readers. Beauty Box Five is monthly subscription service. They'll send you 4 to 5 beauty samples each month. The shipment I received has an over $40 value.

Subscriptions are $12 a month (if you sign up for the month-to-month subscription). You can save money by signing up for their quarterly subscription - which is $30 (saving you $6) or their yearly subscription - which is $100 (gives you 2 free months). Boxes ship mid-month.

Keep in mind the box I'm showing you is not the November 2012 shipment; this is just a random mix of products for me to get an idea of what a box may include.

Now I'll break it down, product-by-product...

Lash Card
  • MY THOUGHTS: I've received this product in another subscription service box and have yet to use these cards. However, I think they are a fantastic idea! I just generally don't have much trouble with applying my mascara to need one of these. Now what I do need is a shadow guard for shimmery and glittery loose-shadows!
  • FULL SIZE: 10-pack @6.99
  • SIZE I RECEIVED: 2 cards
  • VALUE: $1.40

Pur-lisse Pur-Delicate Gentle Soy Milk Cleanser & Makeup Remover
  • MY THOUGHTS: I like the Pur-lisse brand, so it's always nice to try a new product. I like that this is a cleanser and makeup remover in one, making it simple to take off my makeup at night and feel like my face is clean.
  • FULL SIZE: 5.6 oz @ $36.00
  • SIZE I RECEIVED: 1.7 oz
  • VALUE: $10.94

CityLips Advanced Formula, clear
  • MY THOUGHTS: I already love this brand and have the original formula, which I've reviewed in the past here. The Advanced Formula is even better; really happy to receive this sample as I'm just about out of the original full sized tube I have.
  • FULL SIZE: 5 ml @ $35.00
  • SIZE I RECEIVED: 1.5 ml
  • VALUE: $10.51

Bodyography Foundation Primer
  • MY THOUGHTS: I've never tried this brand before so it will be nice to try something new. I already have a ton of primers, so I'm not sure exactly when I'll get around to testing this out but I know I'll give it a try in the near future. It's also a great size sample tube; over half the full size!
  • FULL SIZE: 1 oz @ $30.00
  • SIZE I RECEIVED: 0.53 oz
  • VALUE: $16.04

Blinc Mascara
  • MY THOUGHTS: I'm not a fan of the original Blinc Mascara, so I didn't bother to open this sample up because I plan to use it in an upcoming giveaway. I do, however, like Blincs new Amplified Mascara - which I recently reviewed here.
  • FULL SIZE: 0.21 oz @ $26.00
  • SIZE I RECEIVED: 0.02 oz
  • VALUE: $2.48
