October 2015 Beauty Box 5 - Review

This is my first time ever receiving Beauty Box 5 and I was really excited when it arrived in my mailbox.  I have been subscribed to Birchbox for about a year now and thought it would be fun to try another subscription box out.  Beauty Box 5 is $12 a month and each month you receive 5 deluxe samples and full-sized products to try out.  BB5 also has the option to pay quarterly for $30 which saves $6 or pay yearly for $99 to save $45.

Each box comes with a card telling you what you have received that month and how much each product retails for.  For the month of October their theme was Think Pink and every product this month was pink.

This was the first product I received this month and I've really been wanting to try out a product like this for a while now.  This Makeup Cleansing Cloth is supposed to wipe away your makeup with only having to add water.  The greatest part of this product is that it is machine washable so you don't have to worry about running out of makeup remover wipes.  This cleansing cloth is also super soft and gentle on your skin.  This is the full-size and it retails for $3.99.

This is was the second product that came in this month's box.  This kabuki brush is super cute and about twice the price of the box!  This brush can be used to buff on mineral foundation, powders, blushes and bronzers.  This brush is very soft and I've been using it to apply blush which it does beautifully.  This kabuki brush retails for $25.

This was the next product I received this month and the one I was most excited about.  I received this in the shade bold berry and it is gorgeous.  This is a lovely fuchsia shade which is highly pigmented.  This lip balm is also very moisturizing which is great.  This product retails for $4.99.

These are the next products I received and you can never have too many hair ties.  Luckily my hair is finally at a length where I can put most of it up in a ponytail now.  I love these types of hair ties because they're super cute.  These retail for $4 for the two of them.

Nubar - Nail Polish Mini

This is the last product I received this month in the shade Pinktober which is vegan and cruelty free.  I don't really paint my nails as much as I used to but it's still a nice color to own.  Unfortunately this nail polish takes about 4 or 5 coats to make it opaque but it does dry pretty quickly which is a plus because I'm always painting my nails and then ruining them as soon as I'm done.  Beauty Box 5 teamed up with Nubar to create this custom shade specifically for this month and it retails for $4.99.

Overall I really loved the October box and think Beauty Box 5 is great for only $12 a month.
