BEAUTY BOX 5 OCTOBER 2014 UNBOXING AND GIVEAWAY UPDATE!!!

Published October 11, 2014 by thebeholdingeye

So it begins, the delivery of October beauty boxes. Every reader of this blog who subscribes to any beauty boxes very well knows the excitement that goes with receiving the first box of the month and knowing the influx is starting.

First up, as usual, at Casa Beholding Eye is the October BeautyBox5. BB5 is a nice little subscription service that costs $12/month. Containing a mix of full-sized and sample-sized products, I subscribe to this one for my daughter. She loves this box and it always seems pretty well-suited to her as well. She actually received this yesterday but she was working, so I persuaded her to wait to sample anything until after I had a chance to take pictures for the blog.

So, here we go…The unboxing of the October BB5:

The BB5 theme this month is Effortless Allure.

And the reverse side of the card gives us a run down of this month’s products and their retail values:

Looks pretty good at first glance but let’s investigate further, shall we?

Oooh, now this is a handy little gadget. The SpattyDaddy is a long-handled miniature spatula that is specially designed to help the consumer get every last drop of that favorite lip gloss, serum, etc. I think we’ve all experienced the utter frustration of knowing there are still several applications’ worth of a product at the bottom of the container, even though it isn’t enough to be caught with an applicator or a pump. The SpattyDaddy has that covered, readers. Even if this hadn’t come in this BB5 box, it was definitely on the 10 Most Wanted List at Casa Beholding Eye. Awesome!!!
(RETAIL VALUE: $5.49)

Lip balms of any kind are always welcome, especially with the cooler weather and chapped lips on the horizon. This is a full-sized Chapstick Hydration Lock double-ended lip balm. This will definitely be put to good use.
(RETAIL VALUE: $2.99)

Next goody in the box is a sample size of Lashem Picture Perfect serum for fine lines that also works as a primer. At first I thought I could wrench this from my daughter’s perfectly manicured little fingers, but no such luck…Turns out this baby doubles as a primer for those not yet worried about wrinkles!
(RETAIL VALUE: $3.95 for full sized product)

Shades of awesomeness…Here’s an absolutely GORGEOUS nail polish by Nanacoco called Surfer’s Dream. And a dream it is. Although I normally associate teal and its various incarnations as a summer color, this hue is especially deep and I actually think might work for early Fall, as well. Outstanding addition to our obscenely large polish collection.
(RETAIL VALUE: $3.95).

And, oh my my, saving (in my opinion) the best for the last is this little gem from Bella Pierre. It’s their Lip and Cheek Stain in Pink. What a lovely shade, perfect for my daughter (pinks don’t normally play well with my complexion, so I can’t arm wrestle her for this one). It blends beautifully and is a lovely, just-in-from-the-snow flush. She’ll definitely put this to good use. Maybe next month she’ll get a similar product in the peach family and we can play Rock, Paper, Scissors for it.
(RETAIL VALUE: $19.99).

As I said, BB5 is $12/month. This month’s box has 4 out of 5 full-sized products, with an estimated retail value of just over $30 (which doesn’t include the estimated value of the Lashem serum sample). Now, that’s what I call a deal, particularly when every single item in this box will be used and not tossed into the Makeup Graveyard (c’mon now, we all have one, right?).

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.

<img src=" photo 20140913_120338_zps8a31d55c.jpg” alt=”” />
(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.
