Beauty Box 5 April Subscription Box Unboxing Event @beautybox5 #bb5fave

Disclosure: I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample of the product for review purposes. The opinions are my own, based on my personal experience with the product.

Beauty Box 5 is an amazing subscription beauty box sampler that is delivered right to your doorstep (or mailbox) filled with a combination of 5 brand new cosmetic samples monthly, quarterly or annually. You can start out at just $12 a month or save more by getting a longer subscription. Signing up to receive Beauty Box 5 each month is a great new way for anyone from teens to moms to sample new cosmetic products and see what works for you.  Each month they include tips and tricks for the products on the back of this little card below to help you get the most out of your beauty samples each month.

Beauty Box 5 shared with me that they are always looking for the inside scoop on hot new items to make the best matches for your own personal taste and lifestyle.  The prices are reasonable too. You can get a Beauty Box 5 monthly for $12, quarterly for $30 or annually for just $99.  Shipping is always free.  A fun way to check out lots of the new beauty stuff out there without a whole lot of $$ investment. The great part is that if you like something, you can just up and buy the full size item, right?  Much better than buying a full size you-know-what-beauty-item and paying a fortune and then it sits in the makeup bag gathering dust because it doesn't work for you.

Beauty Box 5 mixes it up with their brands and keeps things adventurous. They source from a mix of niche, luxe, regular drugstore, vegan and eco-conscious brands.  One month you might get hair care, nail care, makeup, skin care, fragrances or even beauty accessories or a mix of any of the above.  I love the suspense!  You will get a carefully curated blend of travel, full-size and deluxe samples from their most current collection.

I just received the April Shades of Beauty Box.  Like all of us they are busy ladies at Beauty Box 5  but we all know that sometimes you need those beauty extras.  Think about taking some leisure beauty time and enjoy yourself...get a breezy spring look to boot. Here is the scoop on the fresh goodies that were in this cute little box:

It has been a REALLY long winter. I am so excited about wearing short sleeves and cute dresses and ditching those tights. One problem that is already looking a little better after Day1 is some color. Forget those tanning beds...they are so unsafe and who needs to up their risk for skin cancer? Jergens has a hot new product that will get you glowing in 3 days. I have used their Natural Glow products in the past year or two but they never gave you glow in 3 days. I am excited because I see some nice, even color after day 1. One tip: I always exfoliate really well prior to using any self tanning product. You will notice the difference.  Jergens Natural Glow smells fresh and light and I didn't have any issues with streaks.  $9.99 for 4oz is a good value especially since it works pretty fast.

The next product in the box is so cute! blum All Purpose Cleansing Wipes. These are citrus scented and can be used on your face or body.  The container is just right to stash in my purse but I could also see keeping it in your desk or tote bag too. They are gentle and felt good on my face. Got all the mascara, lipstick and eye makeup off in a flash last night. Perfect with those hot summer days on the way too. I will be picking up some more of these! These are only $2.49 for 30 wipes. A great deal.

Bonne Bell Lip DeFiner is a perfect match with the lipstick below. Bonne Bell is a classic name that has been around forever. It is a bright color that really pops for spring. It is perfect when you want a really defined lip. My fave tip is to fill in the whole lip with the liner then put the lipstick on. Excellent staying power.  It is only $3.95.

Nicka K New York Hydro Lipstick is perfect paired with that lipliner above. This is a bright red color that looks very sophisticated and is totally on trend with spring colors this season. It goes on smoothly and is very moisturizing. I have gotten several compliments on the color this week. It really stayed on very well when I paired it with the lipliner. $4.99 for .12oz tube.

The last item in this fun April box was the California Collection Eyeshadow Palette from bhcosmetics. I love the colors...very pretty and perfect for summer. I am going to be using this for weekends down the shore. 

All in all a fun box and perfect for spring renewal. Don't forget to join Beauty Box 5 and get in on the fun.  You can spread the news on Instagram and have an opportunity to win full-size versions of these products too!
