Beauty Box 5 January and February 2017 | Unveiling and Review

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

Each month BB5 curates a theme-based beauty box that features five products that range from full-size to samples. In this feature I will unveil the contents of their January and February 2017 boxes. This is the first time that I have done this, and I will tell you why...I have a brand new mailman who generally delivers my mail to who knows where, and it is often days or weeks later that a neighbor will show up with a some of my mail. Accordingly, one of my neighbors seemed to have received my January box, and it appeared on my porch around the same time that my February box appeared. Therefore, I thought that I would unveil them simultaneously.
The January Box theme and contents:
So Susan Light Diffuser (Full Size. $18.00): With the delectable scent of cocoa and coconut, this duo gives you a perfect contoured and highlighted look. Apply the contour shade on the hollows of your cheeks, while placing the illuminator over cheekbones, temples and nose. #SOSUSANCOSMETICS

Overall Assessment: The January & February 2017 BB5 boxes were both a good value, and it's worth more than the $12.00 cost of admission. However, if you are obsessed with lip products, then the February box will make you especially happy!

    1. Yes, I completely agree, Allison! The February box definitely made a big impact because it has so many full -size lip products!

  2. Both boxes look good and I would love to try everything from them. I have never heard of Maskeraide Spotted Anti-Blemish spot patches before, but they sounds like something I should probably try.

    1. Both boxes rally are quite good, but the lippies in the February box are especially fantastic! I have not yet tried this Maskeraide treatment, but plan to just as soon as I have a breakout!

  3. I agree, the BB5 is definitely worth its price. Most months I'm really impressed. They always send things that I've never even heard of before, which is great!

  4. This is such a cute box! Looks all great. I received that box a long time ago but it was by far not as good as this one! (Just like shampoo samples I remember). Thanks for sharing! xoxo, Sissi www.beauty4free2u.com

  6. Ohh, I like the look of the february box! I also know all too well what mail issues are like. Our old mailman constantly delivered my packages to other peoples porches - some gave them back, others didn't. So frustrating!

    1. You and me both, Julie! The February box is one of the best BB5 boxes to date, IMHO! It's pretty awful when you know that you should be receiving something, and it either doesn't show up at all, or gets rerouted and finally shows up quite late!

  7. I'm always happy when I see nail polish in subscriptions. I love the theme for the February box, it works perfectly for the month.
