BEAUTYBOX5: September “Balancing Act” Unboxing (and coupon codes for FREE AUGUST BOX)

Published September 13, 2014 by thebeholdingeye

It’s that time of the month that all subscription box addicts look forward to…when shipping notifications are received and boxes start shipping out and then finally arriving at the door.

First up this month is BeautyBox5 with the September “Balancing Act” box.

Let’s just jump right in because it’s going to be a busy month for unboxings at Casa Beholding Eye.

There are the contents, all unboxed and ready for exploring.

First up are two generous-sized sample packets of Natural Style by FUBU Deep Conditioner and Co-Wash. I wasn’t aware FUBU made hair care products, so I’m looking forward to trying these.

(RETAIL VALUE FULL-SIZED PRODUCT: $9.99)

Next up is this gorgeous eye pencil in Violet by Nicka K New York. The color inside the tube is exactly the same color as the outside of the tube. Really lovely and a great color for fall.

(RETAIL VALUE: $4.49)

Then we have a handy little pedicure helper with these Sally Hansen Toe Spacers. These things ALWAYS come in handy at pedicure time so always happy to receive something I’ll definitely put to good use.

(RETAIL VALUE: $1.99/PAIR)

And what better accompaniment to toe spacers than a gorgeous new nail polish in a lovely mauve/silver shimmery color? Why, thank you, BB5, you’ve read my mind and picked a great color for me. I don’t see the shade name on the bottle, but this is by My Beauty Spot.

(RETAIL VALUE: $24.99/SET OF 6)

And rounding out this “Balancing Act” box is a generous-sized sample of Chrislie Formulations 3-in-1 Eye Bright an overnight treatment for tired eyes. As I work nights, I’ll definitely be able to put this baby to good use.

(RETAIL VALUE FULL SIZED: $40.00)

All in all, not a bad box at all. Not as spectacularly perfect as last month’s box, but items I’ll definitely put to good use. With a retail value for the eye pencil, the toe spacers, and the nail polish being worth the $12/month subscription price, it makes for a pretty decent deal.
