Beauty Box 5 Review


BeautyBox 5 is an online beauty subscription that is only $12/p month or you can purchase quarterly or yearly subscriptions which save you money. The box comes in a Tiffany Blue which is really cute. Inside, 4-5 samples. I was really excited to receive my first BeautyBox5. This is no ordinary samples and the $12 are really worth it.



My box contained the following:

What is Beauty Box 5:
-This is a sample service that charges different amounts allowing you to test it out for $12 a month, pay $30 quarterly (saving $6), or $100 yearly (saving a whopping $44) which I really like. Even monthly it isn't too unreasonable. Its only $2 more than Birchbox or MyGlam which is do-able in my book.

- Samples come in a blue/green colored cardboard box with a drawstring baggie of samples + an info card.

- You receive 4-5 samples a month. - See more at: http://stephanielouiseatb.blogspot.com/2012/08/july-2012-my-first-beauty-box-5-review.html#sthash.QX1EqbJT.dpuf

Tree Hut Shea Butter Body Scrub in Coconut Lime: Natural Organic Shea Butter. I love any body scrub that does wonders. This is definitely my favorite from the box. It leaves your skin feeling smooth and fresh after the shower and the smell is amazing,

Bodygraphy Foundation Primer in Clear: Another great product, I have never heard of the brand but I think its great it is so soft and it leaves your face smooth. It comes on clean and matte. So you wont look oily. This is something to look forward once I finish my sample.

Brazen Organic Cosmetic Mineral Eyeshadow in Birthday Suit. I have to say this is my least favorite. I do not like shimmery shadows and the packaging is awful. I wished it would come in a different form. The color does not go well on me on my opinion. 

Model Co Ultra Lip Gloss in Strip Tease is another great product. Again I have never heard of the brand but I liked the color and consistency of the liquid. My favorite part was the convenient mirror You can take it anywhere and reapply at convenience. Works well with nude lipsticks.

 

Blinc Mascara: It is water-resistant, no smudge, no run, flake-free. It is said to give length, volume, lasting power. It is meant to be left on so no makeup remover is necessary. I love this sample it gave me darker fuller lashes instantly.

Overall I think the BeautyBox5 is a great service, great product value and you are really getting your moneys worth. Most of the products can be considered deluxe samples if not full size such as the body scrub. It is an affordable subscription. This is a great gift for any women who loves beauty items. It is a great way to try brands/products you have never heard of before. I know I have beauty staples that I first tried through samples and I now love. Also if you travel like me you know you cant take everything with you so these are great sizes to travel with.

-Blinc Mascara 
 I've gotten this before... think twice? It just isn't for me. Its supposed to be water-resistant, no smudge, flake-free, & is a tubing mascara. It just didn't give me the length, volume, or lasting power. I know some people LOVE it though so this isn't a bad sample.

Full size: $26.00 for 0.21 oz   Sample: 0.02 oz which is $2.48 - See more at: http://stephanielouiseatb.blogspot.com/2012/08/july-2012-my-first-beauty-box-5-review.html#sthash.QX1EqbJT.dpuf

Hello Everyone, I am once again excited to be reviewing this awesome product and for the first time hosting my own giveaway. If you have been keeping up with my post you know that I have straight hair and it sometimes gets boring. When I was given the opportunity to review this products I was really excited because is very simple to use and the website has great video tutorials that allows you to style your hair using the products in many different ways. They are all super simple and you don't have to buy super expensive tools.



So what I received:

Lurap Custom Apparel Review

Lurap.com is an online women’s fashion website offering regular, petite and plus size apparel to women in the US and Canada. They offer custom sizing for up to 36W along with other customizations including skirt length, sleeves, neckline etc. I was asked to choose an item from their site and I had a hard time choosing because there are so many great options. But eventually I was in between this dress Miss Madonna in Red (other colors available) and a long sleeve wrap dress but since I do own a wrap dress I wanted something different. 
I love how comfortable and stretchy the fabric is on this dress and believe it is flattering to many body types. Shipping is fast and like I mentioned before you can have customization for a small fee. I think it is very difficult for people to find the right clothes to fit their bodies. Since I am short I was regretting getting a shorter length but wearing it with heels made a great difference.
