Beauty Box 5 - August 2014 [Review]

After constantly seeing a promotion on my Facebook for Beauty Box 5, I decided I would sign up and give it a shot. They were offering a free box with the purchase of the September 2014 box. 2 for the price of 1, why not?!

I had heard some mixed reviews for previous boxed, but I wanted to give it a try anyway. Ipsy has been going downhill for me, so I was looking for something to maybe replace it.

This was my Beauty Box Five FREE August box. As you can see the sizes are pretty decent. I received:

LA Fresh - Travel Lite Oil Free Makeup Remover Wipes (Qty: 8 Wipes)
I haven't had a chance to try these out yet because I have another package opened, however I've heard good things about these so I can't wait to give them a try. These retail for $2.49 on their website.

Pur-Lisse SPF 30 Sunscreen, Essential Daily Moisturizer
I've received this in a previous Ipsy bag. It doesn't moisturize my skin very well. This will probably end up in a trade or donate pile. Or eventually used when my skin doesn't feel too dry. The full size (1.5oz) retails for $55.00 on their website. We were sent a sample size of .5oz.

Novex Brazilian Keratin Professional Hair Food Therapy
I'm always looking for a good hair treatment. My hair is long, wavy and thick. But the ends sometimes look dry. I haven't had a chance to try this hair treatment out because I'm using the free BzzAgent Pantene Pro-V Collection, however this sample looks like I may be able to get a few uses out of it. Hopefully it doesn't make my hair look or feel greasy. This retails online for $70 for 1kg. We were sent a sample size packet of 30g.

Style Essentials Nail Polish
Theres nothing really special about this polish. Its clear with specks of black and white pieces. I might wear it, I might not. I'm a little unsure. Anyway, after looking on Beauty Box 5's website, I found these sell in a pack of 4 for $7, making this polish worth $1.75.

Nanacoco Lip Gloss in Mysterious
This lip gloss reminds me very much of the Jouer gloss that I redeemed my ipsy points for a few months back. This colour seems to be a little darker than the Jouer though. This gloss isn't too sticky, and actually smells nice. I haven't used it too much though because I have a billion other glosses open at the moment. This sells on the BB5 website for $3.99.

As my first BB5 box, and for free, I was happy with it. I will use everything in this box eventually, so nothing is really a waste.
