Beauty Box 5 Review: March 2014

In December, I got to review a Beauty Box 5 subscription, and I am now an official member of the Beauty Box Five Review team. Which means I now get to review their box each month, so keep your eye out for them--beauty subscriptions are always full of new and exciting goodness.

The theme for this month's Beauty Box was "Out with the old, in with the new!" with a major emphasis on skin care.

I received four of the five products featured this month:

Jane's Pick All Natural Handmade Soap (retail $8.00): All natural=no chemicals, and I love that. It also smells wonderful and is gentle on the skin. I didn't try this, but apparently you can lather it up and use it in place of shaving cream, as well.

Bellapierre Cosmetics Makeup Base (retail $18.99): I have used this every single day since I received this box. I love this stuff. It can be used as a concealer (why am I almost 40 years old and still having regular breakouts on my face?), an illuminator, or an eyeshadow primer. It's not heavy at all, and looks really nice on--especially when used as a concealer, which (unfortunately) was how I mostly used it this week.

H2O Plus Hand & Nail Cream (retail $15.00): In the harsh winter we've had this year, I've been using a ton of different hand creams to keep the dry skin and eczema away. This one totally passed the test--it didn't burn or irritate, and it did a nice job of moisturizing as well.

Swissco Dual-sided Facial Pad (retail $2.00): I've never actually used something like this on my face before, but I did like using it and can see how it will be quite beneficial.

The other product that was included in March's Beauty Box was Tree Hut Shea Body Butter (retail $7.49), which also looks pretty nice and sounds like it smells heavenly.

The total worth of this month's Beauty Box 5 is $51.39, which is an excellent value. A monthly subscription to Beauty Box 5 costs $12.00. Sign up by March 31st to receive April's box!

  1. Ok, so I have worse acne as a 40 year old woman, than I ever had as a teenager. And I swear living in BG changed my DNA, because I totally have hair on my chin, that should not be there -- I'm planning on living up to full Babushka when that time comes...I've got the finger wag down.
    And this box you've featured the March box, or the April box?

  2. Yes, this is the March box. I believe there are previews of the next month's boxes on the website.

  3. I always tell my body it needs to pick either gray hair or zits. Not both. Please.

  4. I know, right? And wrinkles and zits just look stupid together.
