June 2013 - Beauty Box 5

Happy Sunday!!

Yesterday I received my first ever Beauty Box 5 box. I was excited to see that little teal box in my mailbox! I had seen a couple spoilers online, but I was unsure as to how many different box variations they usually have. With ipsy and Birchbox, there are often dozens or more variations. After a little bit of digging, I found that there were only two variations with BB5.

Here is my first ever Beauty Box 5!
My box contained:
  • Coolway Shampoo & Conditioner
  • Just Being Sexy Body Bronzer (2 packets)
  • Minxxette Brush Hanger
  • Shea Terra Organics Rose Hips Black Facial Soap

Coolway Cool Cleanse Shampoo and Cool Hydrate Conditioner - 1oz each
I know a lot of people are not very excited to get shampoo and conditioner in a beauty box, but I feel that these samples are a good size. I also like that they gave everyone both the shampoo and conditioner to try together. I haven't used these yet, but I smelled the shampoo and it smells really good! It has a subtle yet fruity scent to it. I should be able to get get 3-4 uses out of the bottles, so I am looking forward to trying this.
Cost of full size product: $25.00 for 8.6oz bottle
Value of sample: $2.91 each ($5.82 total)

Just Being Sexy Body Bronzer - 8mL packets (2)
Ehh. I wasn't very excited about this product. At least they included two foil packets so that there will be enough product to try out...hopefully! From what I read on the package, I am assuming this product is very similar to St. Tropez One Night Only Instant Glow Body lotion. I own this product and I actually really love it. The Just Being Sexy claims that it won't rub off, and that it is safe for face and body. It's also made in the USA and not tested on animals! I will be looking to try this product out soon.
Cost of full size product: $49.00 for 6 fl oz
Value of sample: $2.37 each ($4.74)

   Minxxette Brush Hanger - small size
I don't really have too much to say about this product. I might use it, but having just one isn't very convenient when I have so many brushes! For those of you that have NO IDEA what on earth this product is - it's a plastic little brush holder that you hang your brush on so it can dry after you clean it. I don't really see any need for this product.
Cost of product: $4.69

Shea Terra Organics - Rose Hips Black Facial Soap - 1oz
I was SO EXCITED to get this item! This is a highly coveted product over at the Makeup Talk forums. (Shout out to my MuT ladies!!) Since I struggle with acne, this product sounds like the perfect product for me. It's supposed to lift away dead skin cells, even skin tone, firm skin, and fight acne. Sounds pretty miraculous, huh? I cannot wait to try this lovely little product!
Cost of full size product: $18.00 for 4oz
Value of sample: $4.50

Total value of box: $19.75

Overall, I was very pleased with my first box. I paid $10 for this box, so it paid for itself. I will definitely be using all of the products that came in my box this month.

What subs have you guys received recently?! I'd love to see what you're getting!!
