This month’s Beauty Box Five has arrived, and I cannot wait to show you what was inside! This is definitely one of my most favorite boxes yet, so keep reading and see why Beauty Box Five is the monthly beauty subscription box for you!
For those of you who are not familiar with Beauty Box 5, each month, for around $12 a month plus shipping, you will receive a box with four to five “samples” of the hottest name beauty products for you to try including Blinc, Montagne Jeunesse, Blum, Ferro Cosmetics, Swissco, Tree Hut and many more! I put the word samples in quotes because the products are really more travel size up to full size than they are sample size. Even the smallest-sized sample I have received has been enough to last for a couple of weeks, which is plenty enough time to decide whether or not I like it enough to buy it.
If you missed last month’s box, you can always check it out by clicking HERE, but first let’s see what came in January’s box!
H2O Plus Spa Sea Lotus Body Wash $17.00 12.5 fl.oz.
H2O Plus products use marine-life science to create their complete line of skin-care products. I have tried several of their products and I love them all! Their Sea Lotus Body Wash is made with Water Lotus Extract, Bamboo Extract, and essential vitamins. It has a light lather that gently cleanses your skin while leaving it smooth and moisturized. This moisturizing gel delivers deep hydration and maintain your skins moisture balance while helping to stimulate skin renewal. It has a clean, fresh scent made with just a hint of aquatic floral and crisp sea grass it also contains a mineral-rich blend of Red Algae and Vitamin E nourish and revitalize skin from environmental stressors, and contains Aloe Extract to naturally soothe and calm skin. I have been using it for about a week now, and I love how soft my skin feels, and how clean and fresh it smells.
Nubar Cuticle Care & Nail Oil $10.00 0.5 fl.oz.
Another brand I discovered through Beauty Box Five, I was excited to find a bottle of Nubar’s Cuticle Care and Nail Oil in this months box! Perfect for the at-home manicure, this elixir made with the antifungal and healing properties of jojoba oil along with hydrating properties of Vitamins A, E and D, Caramiane and Mulberry Root Extract is great for helping to sooth inflamed skin and psoriasis around the cuticles. Available in your choice of cute candy colors and delicious scents such as Sweet almond, Vanilla, Grapefruit or Passion fruit, this oil is formaldehyde, phthalate and toluene-free! This elixir is also a way to get rid of nail fungus such as inflamed skins, psoriasis, eczema, and dermatitis. I have always had issues with my cuticles drying out and peeling during the colder months. Since I have been using this elixir, my cuticles are hydrated, and I have not had to deal with anymore painful peeling cuticles.
Swissco Bath and Shower Exfoliating Gloves $5.00 for one pair
These colorful gloves let you easily rub away dead skin in hard to reach places leaving you soft and smooth all over. Simply slip the on in the shower, add your favorite body wash and gently rub rough, flaky dead skin away. Afterward, rinse and hang to dry. I use these at least twice a week and I love how silky soft my skin has become. No more rough elbows, knees and heels!

Jergens Daily Moisture Dry Skin Moisturizer contains Silk Proteins and Citrus Extracts to help keep your skin hydrated and soft all day long. This lightly scented formula provides the perfect amount of hydration for my dry skin leaving my skin soft and silky smooth. I like that it only takes a small amount, and it is instantly absorbed without leaving a greasy or oily feeling. It is also available in a fragrance-free formula.

My Opinion of January’s Beauty Box Five
Another month, another great box! This one had several items by brands I love, as well as a few from brands I have not yet tried. Had I bought all of these items, I would have spent $84.88 on items I would not have been sure if I liked. Instead, with Beauty Box Five, the cost would be as little as $13 to try these items and see if I like them. Not a bad deal!Like always, I really enjoyed August’s Beauty Box Five! Many products were new to me, and I was able to see how well they work for me without having to go out and spend money on a product I was unsure about. Had you gone out and bought these products, you would have spent $93.48 on products you may not have ever used before, and wanted to try. With Beauty Box Five, you would get to try all these products first for as low as $12 a month! You just can’t beat that!
