Monthly Beauty Goodies in Beauty Box 5!

I love beauty subscription services.. they are a fun way to find and try out new products. Beauty box 5 is a monthly service that's new to me. The premise is familiar- 4 or 5 deluxe beauty samples delivered to your door each month. Let's take a look at what was in the August Box: 

  • Comodynes Urban Cosmetics Peeling Facial Sample Packet 
  • 1.76 Oz Can of Freeman Beauty Pssssst! Instant Dry Shampoo
  • .53 Oz Tube of Bodyography Foundation Primer
  • 0.06 Jar of Everyday Minerals Blush in "Girl Friday"
  • 0.0064 Oz Makeup Geek Eyeshadow Refill in Sensuous

I like the range of skin care, hair care, and makeup in this box, and I appreciate how it is a little heavier on the makeup! The mineral blush is a great addition. I do think the inclusion of an eyeshadow refill is a bit awkward, as many people wouldn't have anywhere to put it.  That being said, if you have a magnetic palette like a Z-Palette, it shouldn't be a problem. 
Definitely a solid box! Beauty box 5 has featured brands like Blinc Cosmetics, Weleda, and Priti NYC in the past- so I'm looking forward to seeing what's in store for next month!
