beautybox five October box came today. It’s all about Pink!
I’m not much of a pink kind of girl, just a thing from when I was a kid, but it is a sweet, pretty little box. My fav out of it is that Pink Rhinestone Kabuki Brush from Ferro Cosmetics — soft, fluffy and cute!
Happy Hands HappyFace Makeup Cleansing Cloth – looking forward to trying this, I’ve been using microfiber washcloths since I wash my face with coconut oil and honey. If I like this I may have to get a bunch of them.
Styli-Style Perfect Pout Long Lasting Balm Stick in Mischievous Magenta. Swatched, it’s not really my color. It wipes off easily and is only very lightly staining – so not sure about how long lasting it would be. It’s a lip balm though, so it would likely look nice layered over or on something else… or if you just want a tinted balm.
Knotty Hair Ties – They’re cutesy, but not for me since I don’t wear hair ties other than dark colored ones or hair clips.
Nubar Nail Polish Mini in Pinktober – soft pink color, dries pretty quickly and I like that it doesn’t contain any formaldehyde. The sad thing about studying to be an RMA and then once I get in the field, I can only wear clear nail polish and have to wear my nails short, no falsies. Not that I wear nail polish all the time, but once that privilege is taken away, it seems like a bigger deal! There’s always days off though!
Since this is my 2nd ever receipt of a beauty box subscription I can’t really say one way or the other if they’re worth it as far as value in products that I’d get excited over. The only thing in this box that really jumped out at me was the kabuki brush and maybe the cleansing cloth after I’ve looked at it a bit longer. Yes, I can probably live without any of these items, but I do like getting mail and surprises, so I’ll keep the subscriptions for now. Whatever I don’t use I’ll give away.
I’m supposed to get a mystery box from BB5 that I purchased right after subscribing and my Ipsy sub starts next month. So more boxes!
I will say one thing about BB5 that I’ve noticed, when they send a shipping confirmation it says it can take up to 48 hours for the tracking to show up, but this first box took much longer than that and the mystery box tracking is following suit. Not sure if that’s their customary way in regards to shipping & tracking, but I’ll monitor that with next month’s shipment and update.
