Beauty Box 5 November 2014 Review


Hello readers,
My Beauty Box 5 just showed up in the mail.  November's theme was 'gracefully grounded'.  Let's take a look at what was in the box.

BB5 November 2014

Laura Ashley Body Butter | Retail: $20.00 Set of 6 body butters (1.75 oz each)
"Play princess for a day and indulge in this nourishing, rich lotion! For a maximum moisturizing moment, smooth it on post-shower while your skin is still damp for seriously smooth results with a sweet scent, too.
BB5 November 2014
This body butter just looks cheap.  First off, BB5 broke up sets to sent these out.  It doesn't sound like it's something you can buy individually.  Secondly, the packaging itself looks flimsy and cheap.  You can see the edges of the lid in the picture are very rough an and uneven.  I'm don't like the scent of lavender but I can't hold that against the product since I just got it by chance.  Overall I'm feeling meh about this product.

HASK Macadamia Revitalizing Shine Oil | Retail: $2.99 5/8 fl oz
"Nuts for having healthy hair? We know you will cherish this ulta-hydrating oil just as much as we do! Apply a small amount to your ends after conditioning and watch dull strands come back to life."
BB5 November 2014
I actually have a bottle of this product.  I haven't had a chance to use it yet but it's something I'll definitely try.  I wear my hair in a messy bun most of the time so maybe this will help defrizz the ends that hang loose.

DenTek Floss Picks + Case | Retail $2.49 4 count
"Floss in style with these adorable picks and colorful case! BB5 Tip: keep this little cute case n your bag to minimize those embarrassing smile moments.  Trust us: it will become a must-have in no time."
BB5 November 2014
Seriously?? Floss?! This is not a 'deluxe beauty sample'.  I could buy a whole pack of these at the dollar store for less.  Seriously disappointed with this one.

Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash | Retail: $6.49 22 oz
"Meet the Latest Beauty Breakthrough from Dove. With a rich lather and even more of our gentlest cleansers, Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash will leave you with softer, smoother skin after just one shower."
BB5 November 2014
I'll definitely use this.  Is it super fancy? No, but it's from a brand I know and everyone needs shower gel.  This item gets a thumbs up from me.

Afterfeather Refillable Travel Bottles | Retail: $8.95 Set of 2 Refillable 2 fl oz Bottles
"This pretty little travel buddy is not only function and TSA-approved, but easy on the eyes! Fun fact: these were inspired by the beauty all around us and are totally reusable for all your favorite products."
BB5 November 2014
BB5, this is a new low.  An empty bottle.  A 'deluxe beauty sample' of nothing.  Do you know how I get empty bottles? By finishing a product.  What really irked me was that instead of this item, some subscribers got a L'oreal Paris nail polish.  There's such a difference in value there.  Considering in my profile I indicated I was most interested in cosmetics you'd think they'd send me the one cosmetics product available this month.  Instead, I got an empty bottle.  So much disappointment.

Conclusion
I am seriously disappointed with this month's box.  The total value is pretty much what I paid for it... how is that a great value like the box is supposed to be? If for some reason you're interested in BB5 after this review, you can find more info here.

Happy polishing,

Michelle
