Beauty Box 5 Review September 2016

Beauty Box 5 Review September 2016

Beauty Box 5 has secured a spot on my favourites list. When it comes to beauty subscriptions, this one is definitely in the top 5. The last few boxes have been great, and I feel like they are more receptive to their customers than they use to be. Basically I feel like they are putting in a lot more effort, and that makes me happy.

This month’s Beauty Box 5 is titled “It’s So Hard Not to Play Favourites”. I am assuming we will find some of their favourite products in the September box, and that’s always a good thing. Who doesn’t love favourites.




Pur-Lisse Blue Lotus Essential Daily Moisturizer

Blue Lotus spf30 essential daily moisturizer with White Tea, Soy Proteins and Algae Extracts offers superior full-spectrum sun protection without a white tint.  This lightweight, nourishing formula pampers & protects against premature aging caused by the sun’s rays for healthy, smooth & soft skin. 

I’ve come to love Pur-Lisse products. I never use to use the ones I would get in my subscription boxes, but I finally gave in, and discovered that I actually really like their moisturizer. I’m happy to see that this one has SPF 30.

Go Smile Teeth Whitening Gel

Go SMiLE’s Teeth Whitening Gel is everything you want a whitening toothpaste to be, but never find! Go SMiLE’s powerful teeth whitener works as well as a separate whitening system, but without the extra time and hassle. Simply add it to your toothpaste as part of your daily routine! Our Hyperox technology penetrates into teeth, to remove even older, deeper stains.

I’m always happy to receive teeth whitening products. Now I just need to get my butt in gear and actually test them out. I am kind of lazy when it comes to these kind of things so the fact that this one is fast and easy to use makes it a little more enticing.

Be A Bombshell Smooth Criminal Finishing Powder

It is silky smooth 100% silica powder. Helps minimize the look of fine lines and pores for a flawless finish. Apply alone or over foundation. Features & details Silky smooth Pure silica Helps minimize the look of fine lines and pores for a flawless finish. 

I LOVE Bombshell products. This is another brand I discovered thanks to my subscription boxes. I usually receive lip or eye products, so I am really happy to be able to test out a face product.

Simple Skincare Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes

Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes cleanse, refresh, and nourish your skin. They provide an easy way to cleanse at home or on the go. Ideal for sensitive skin, these alcohol-free and oil-free wipes contain no dyes, artificial perfumes, or harsh ingredients. They work in just one step, no rinsing required. Perfect for sensitive skin, they also gently remove even waterproof mascara.

I keep wipes everywhere, and I like to have at least 3 packages on hand at all times. They come in very handy, especially when travelling. I like that these ones will remove waterproof mascara, that’s always a tough one.

Happy Brands Happy Hair Turban

Twist, loop, and dry your hair in a snap! This handy turban dries your mane quickly, while being gentle on hair follicles, reducing frizz and breakage. We’re big fans of using it to keep our tresses out of our faces when applying post shower skincare and makeup, too!

What a fun little product! I’ve never used a hair towel like this and I have a feeling I am going to love it. So much better than trying to wrap a huge towel around my head. And it doesn’t hurt that it’s bright pink.

Beauty Box 5 Review September 2016 – Final Details

Once again I am happy with my Beauty Box 5 delivery. Who knew they could fit such fun items into such a small little box. Out of the 5 items we received this month, I can see myself using almost all of them. The only one in question is the Pur-Lisse moisturizer, only because I have an awesome face cream I am using right now and I’m not sure if I want to give it up. And can we talk about the awesome mixture of products we received? We got something for hair, face, skin, teeth, as well as a makeup item. This is my idea of the perfect product mix. Already looking forward to the October box.
