The theme of Beauty Box 5 June 2016 box – Made in the Shade – couldn’t be more perfect for me, after all that’s all I do when we go out to the pool or the beach since a) I don’t like tanning and b) my skin is crazy sensitive to the sun and will just burn. So as you might have already guessed, the selection of samples prompts us to take a little break from the sun and enjoy a few quiet moments in a cool place. I promise you will love Beauty Box 5! Plus it’s the gift that keeps on giving when you buy a subscription!

This box was super exciting for me! It came with a lot of fun goodies and things I really enjoy using. Here’s what I got this time:
PRESTIGE COSMETICS Brow and Lash Brush
– Retail $3.25
This double-ended tool is essential for every babe’s makeup bag! Use the bristles to brush unruly brow hairs into place and blend harsh brow color. Flip over to even out eyelashes for optimal mascara application and to comb through clumps!
MANNA KADAR Radiance Bronzer & Highlighter
– Retail $24
Sweep this 2-in-1 pan of highlight and bronzer onto your face (using the SWEEP brush) to create a defined and contoured look. The velvety texture allows for smooth application and the highly pigmented color yields an amazing flawless finish.
SWEEP Oval Contour & Highlight Brush
– Retail $15
Who doesn’t love a fresh brush? Use this perfectly-sized oval head to gently dust on highlight and precisely place bronzer or blush around your cheekbones. This tool makes blending, shading and perfecting your makeup a breeze!
VERSASPA Gradual Tanning Face Moisturizer
– Retail $35
Hydrate skin, blur fine lines and gradually create a beautiful tan with this daily face moisturizer. Apply this weightless formula to your face and neck in a circular motion and allow 4-8 hours before getting wet to reveal renewed skin!
PUR-LISSE Blue Lotus Treatment Sheet Mask
– Retail $8
Sit back and relax in the shade with this natural fiber mask infused with Blue Lotus and restorative Asian botanicals! Grab a glass of sweet tea and wait for 20 minutes while the treatment improves skin’s texture, delivers antioxidants and leaves a healthier complexion.
Each item, as usual, was nice quality. My favorites were the sheet mask and the oval brush. The mask felt amazing on my face and the brush is simply unique. I don’t think there was even anything I disliked in this box to be quite honest. It was a hit for me this time.
Obviously, I love Beauty Box or I wouldn’t keep working with them, but the big question is “ is this box worth the $12 monthly fee?” I bring this up every review and will continue to do so because I want everyone to see what they are getting when they pay for a Beauty Box membership. Well if I bought all of these at full sizes from the store I would have paid at least a total of 85.25 +tax. Basing of the sizes and estimating their value by their ounce sizes, the samples in the box I received are worth at least $50.25 +tax for this particular box. This month was a great month and great value for me. Some months you get more than others and some months I don’t enjoy as much, but it’s always above the $12 value of the membership so you will always be coming out on top in my personal experience it. If you love monthly subscription boxes as well as trying new products, you definitely want to give Beauty Box a try! I almost always love all or 99% of what I get in my boxes!
