Beauty Box 5: May 2014

I used to subscribe to Beauty Box 5 back in the day, meaning 2 years ago when I was obsessed with the fad of "boxed subscriptions." Don't get me wrong, I'm still obsessed, but now I have a family to support so subscribing to these services don't usually happen because I usually can not afford it. However, back in April they shared a coupon code for a FREE box, and of course, I jumped on it. Here's what was inside:

Pretty decent box! Wouldn't say it's AMAZING, but definitely not disappointing. 

BH Cosmetics California Collection Eyeshadow Sample - Value: $6
This is a real cool sample. The colors are fun and ones I would wear in life. However, I didn't want to open this one, to take a picture of the colors because I'm probably going to regift it because I already have this exact same sample from BH Cosmetics that I got in Beauty Army, and there is a high chance that I also may have a 3rd one. I have seen this sample palette before, LOL. Nothing wrong with that, but I feel like it would go great in someone's gift pack for some special occasion. 

Just Being Sexy Body Bronzer - Value I HAVE NO CLUE BECAUSE I AM TERRIBLE AT MATH.

I'm not sure I would ever use this. When it comes to bronzer I'm clueless. And the fact that this is a BODY bronzer makes me a little more fearful. What if I sweat? Will it come off? I can't even compute a calculations to this because I never excelled in mathematics, but my guess is that it's less $1.00 considering 6 oz is valued at $49 and we were sent 24 ML. 

Aveeno Positively Nourishing Calming Body Wash - VALUE: $.90
I LOVE this stuff!! The smell of Lavender, Chamomile + Ylang-Yla
ng (what?) is one of my favorite smells ever and the fact that this is a body wash and not a lotion doubles my excitement! I love itty bitty things you can take on trips with you and this will definitely make my bag for NYC. 

LA Fresh Travel Lite-Facial Cleansing Wipes - Value: $3.50
I am a huge fan of LA Fresh. I've never actually ordered them on my own or seen them in stores, but have received them as samples before and LOVE LOVE LOVE them. Not to mention I love cleansing face wipes alot in general. They are perfect for making you feel a bit more fresh in the facial area on some days! I'm pretty excited to get this product and it will also be traveling with me to NYC in June. 

Montagne Jeunesse Glacial Cooling Face Mask - Value: $2.50
I've only used one mask by Montagne Jeunesse but enjoyed it. So, I'm pretty excited to try this and I actually received 4 masks from the company to provide my thoughts on them in another blog post! I am really looking forward to that! 

So, based on my (i'm sure poor) calculations the value of this FREE box was: $13.90? NOT bad. They could probably have sent me 5 foil packets and I probably would not have complained since it was entirely free, so because this box had stuff I enjoyed it was a good experience for me. HOWEVER, I don't think a good enough one to continue to my journey with them. I currently subscribe to IPSY (amazing!) and Love with Food (it's true, I love Food!) and that's really all I can afford right now. Now, I hope canceling goes smoothly. I have heard some things...
