May Beauty Box 5 Review: SOS

Yay!!!! It’s my favorite time of the month already…Beauty Box 5 review time! I love love love these sweet little monthly subscription boxes. If you’re not already a subscriber and can afford $12 or less per month, then what are you waiting for??? I adore the full-size and deluxe sample-size products they send. How could I not be a fan of being introduced to new lines and/or trying something before I pay full-price? But, I’m digressing, I know you’re all really wanting to read what I thought of this month’s box, SOS.

May Beauty Box 5 Review, What was in they May Beauty Box 5

Essenza Luxury Hand Soap

Stainless Steel Mini Tweezer, Travel Tweezers

Styli Style Highlighter Stick, Dermalogica Active Moist, Good oil-free moisturizer

Neutral Highlighter, Inexpensive Good Highlighter

Best Highlighter Review, What does highlighter look like on skin

Bio Swiss Stainless Steel Mini Tweezer ($4.99): These are so perfect for travel or just to have in my bag for when I have a stray hair/brow (don’t you hate it when that happens???).

Essenza Luxury Hand Soap (Deluxe Sample, $.60; Full Size, $4.99): Ok, so, this smells heavenly and will be perfect for when I run out of soap and forget to pick some up (not that I ever do that:) ), but, the only thing I don’t care for is there really isn’t a great way to dispense it. The full size of course has a pump but the sample size does not. Like I said, I’m sure it will come in handy, but might be a little difficult to use.

Styli-Style Blush/Highlighter Stick (Full Size, $5.99): Eek! I was so excited to get this. Assorted colors were given, but I was so lucky to have received Champagne. I don’t always care for highlighters that are more colorful and this is the perfect nude shade (see above). Whether I swipe it on my cheeks, bridge of my nose or dab it on my cupid’s bow, I sense a summer of highlighting perfection in my future!

Dermalogica Active Moist (Deluxe Sample, $4.25; Full Size, $60): I’m always excited to find anything from Dermalogica and their Active Moist is oil-free making it nearly a necessity for summer. I think I’ll use it as a special skin-treat on the ultra-humid days and evenings soon to be upon us.

Coastal Scents Classic/Synthetic Shader Brush ($2.49): Again, assorted brushes were given but a girl can never have too many shader brushes can she?!? I could put this in my travel makeup bag, but I’ll probably start using it as my everyday one instead.

The total value of the May Beauty Box 5 was $18.32 for a savings of between $6.32 and $10.07!
