I got to try yet another beauty sampler box, Beauty Box 5. This one costs $12 a month and I feel like skews towards having products that are more natural and definitely more “indy” that other boxes I’ve tried.
As with all sampler boxes, there were some hits and some misses for me. The lower price of $12 is good, but the samples sizes were pretty tiny.
The Blinc eyeliner sample is literally TINY, but you can get a bunch of uses out of it. It was a little hard to apply this liquid liner, having the handle be so small, but it did last all day so I would consider buying the full size product.
The Blum naturals oil absorbing facial tissues were a great addition to my purse, to pull out when I’m feeling shiny and the plastic container means they won’t be destroyed if they are in my purse for a long while (unlike a paper container).
I am not a fan of either loose powder blushes or eyeshadows so both of those products weren’t my favs. The All Natural Face vegan mineral eyeshadow was a really subtle grey, a good neutral for anyone to have but messy to apply. Same with the blush by Everyday Minerals, messy!
I used the one use Easy Peel packet by Comodynes and liked it well enough. But one use for that kind of skincare and its hard to see results.
So overall, the Beauty Box 5 is a good option for a beauty sampler program is you want to try some more indy and natural lines, but the samples sizes will be small.
