1) Blinc Mascara (sample size 0.02 oz) Full size retails for $26.00 for 0.21 oz. According to blinc:
Believe it or not, this is the first time that I have ever tried a tube mascara, and this type of formula will definitely take some getting used to for me. The removal is a little strange in that it removes intact and looks like an eyelash. It literally creates a tube that envelops the lashes. It is definitely long-wearing and it looks good on.
Curls Gel-les'c (sample size 2 oz) Full size retails for $25.00 for 8 oz. According to CURLS,
this was made for fine and medium curly hair textures."It isn’t a gel, and not quite a serum it’s Curl Gel-les’c (pronounced Curl Jealousy). This botanically based, organic curl styler imparts brilliant sheen, banishes frizz, and holds those twirls in place! Great for humid climates. Transform dry frizzy locks into the enviable curls that every woman dreams of, with Curl Gel-les’c. Go ahead, your curls deserve it!"
I have naturally very curly hair- so trying a product that is geared toward those of us with kinky locks is always nice. It's also nice that this product boasts a plethora of natural ingredients instead of being silicone based. This feels and smells great, and it actually does just what it's supposed to do as well. I may actually buy the full-sized bottle when I finish up this deluxe sample.
Bodyography Makeup Primer (sample size 0.53 oz) Full size retails for $30.00 for 1 oz. This is a very slick primer with a lovely texture. It is silicone based- so that will be a deal-breaker for people who don't care for that ingredient in their face primers. My makeup did not budge applied over this primer, and it looked fresh all day long.
Spongeables Pedi-Scrub Foot Buffer (full sized product provided) Retails for $2.99. This is a really nice and effective foot scrub. This retail price isn't bad at all- so there is a very good chance that I will replace this once I use it up.
It is also important to note that I can only review Beautybox 5, as a whole, based solely upon these four products sent in a single month cycle. Therefore, if past or future selections prove either underwhelming or spectacular- there is thus far no way for me to weigh in on them. I will also say that I would have been far more wowed had there been a full-size mid to high end makeup selection included- because that would go a long way to convincing me to consider subscribing. That said, I enjoyed what I received and definitely see the merit in such services.
What do you think about this type of monthly beauty subscription? Which, if any, have you tried? Have you tried Beautybox 5?
