Beauty Box 5 June Box- This might be the best one yet!

Frugalista Blog Beauty Box 5 June review

Hey folks,

I needed to tell you about this month’s Beauty Box 5. Because it’s So. Freaking. Awesome!

For me, what makes a great subscription box is generous samples, and a mix of full size products as well as stuff that I’m interested in, like nail polish and eyeshadow!

To review, Beauty Box 5 is a subscription box service sending you cosmetic goodies to your door each month. You can pay monthly at $12 or $8.25 per month if you pay for the year in advance.

The first product that caught my eye was the Nails Inc. nail polish in this adorable pink shade. Nails Inc is a brand available at Sephora and this is some good stuff. The bottle included is full-size and even though I have at least 100 polishes (shut up, you know you’re jealous!) I don’t have a color like this one. #NailsInc

Then when I saw the eyeshadow palette staring me in the face, I got really excited! What is this brand? LOL? I’ve never heard of it. But this was another full size diddy. It’s the Rotational Eye Shadow palette in So Rosemantic. I won’t lie- these six colors are bright and really pink- but look lots of fun. They’re located out of France and Australia. How cool is that? #LOLCosmetics

The Herbal Essences body wash and the Simple Skincare cleansing water are great to try. I’m not sure if the body wash is as orgasmic as the shampoos like in the commercials. But I’m willing to find out. Also, cleansing water is the new beauty trend and you need to try it!

I think I actually squealed when I saw the deluxe sample of Urban Decay Cosmetics Perversion Mascara! I love this mascara. It makes your lashes such a deep black without being clumpy. #UrbanDecayCosmetics

There was also a $20 gift voucher for Gorge Hair to order their haircare products. That’s an awesome bonus!

Beauty Box 5 offers you to shop in their online boutique, you have chances to win free product and credit by sharing on social media, and there’s always something new to discover.

Hey- I’m a beauty addict and they keep surprising me- so that’s impressive!

Let me know if you check it out.

Beauty Box 5 October box

I had so much fun with this month’s  Beauty Box 5.

Have you seen the Extend Your Beauty Cosmetic Tool around your local drugstores? This little guy goes to the bottom of bottles to get the last possible bit of fantastic eye cream or Dior Capture Totale Serum (ahem that stuffs expensive!) and this way you can capitalize on those last little bits.

This ain’t your mama’s Chapstick. Dual ended and moisturizing with sunscreen! I love it!

Nanacoco nail polishes are great high-end polishes at low end prices. Great color and thick, smooth formula.

Bellapierre Cosmetics bring to the Beauty Box 5 a dual purpose product- cheek stain and lip color in a true pink. Cheek stains offer light washes of color that look transparent on the skin.

I always save my favorite for last – Lashem Picture Perfect is a primer to smooth and make a great canvas for makeup. It fills wrinkles and pores and gives an even finish.

High five! Beauty Box 5 September Box

I feel pretty, oh so pretty, and bright!

And I pity any girl who


I mean that in the nicest way possible.


Have a look what’s in this month’s box:

Nicka K New York Eyelight Crayon

This is a creamy eyeshadow/eyeliner stick. I love that it’s retractable and its texture. The crazy purple pink will be a fun adventure to incorporate in my ‘green eyes that’ pop look with plums and violets.

Natural Style by FUBU Deep Conditioner and Co-Wash-

I haven’t tried this product yet but it sounds like my hair will love it. I don’t know what a Co-wash is. It says that it’s for curly haired girls. Maybe that’s why I don’t know, because I’m not a curly-haired girl. But with shea butter and paraben and sulfate free, this kind of deep moisture product makes me happy.

Sally Hansen Toe Spacers

I pretty much have enough toe spacers to start a nail salon. I’ll probably toss these in a goody or gift bag for one of my daughter’s friends. Dear Beauty Box 5- no more toe spacers!

My Beauty Spot Nail Polish

I received a true gold color that spreads on thick and looks solid. Fun for accents and patterns over other colors. What I wasn’t sure of was the smell. For a nail polish, it’s got a very strong scent. Like I spray painted the tool shed. We’ll see how I tolerate this!  But the color and coverage is great.

Chrislie Formulations 3-in-1 Eye Bright

Hold. The. Phone.

This is like Botox in a tube. Okay, I don’t have Botox, so I wouldn’t know if it was like that. But my eye area was fresher and brighter after I applied it, just like it said. AND it didn’t get chalky or pasty like some other lifting products do. Love.

There you have it.

Beauty Box 5 December Box Reveal

Frugie Blog's Beauty Box 5 December

OOh, it’s subscription box time again!

I love when the mail comes and it’s a box of goodies all for ME!!

You can enjoy this too if you subscribe to Beauty Box 5 each month. From prestige brands to drugstore brands, you get 5 beauty items in your box each month. Some are deluxe samples and some are full sized products!

I reviewed November’s box here, if you want to take a look.

This month I revealed the products for you in a YouTube video. Feast your eyes-



Beauty Box 5- a review

Hey folks! It’s like the makeup gods smiled on me. I was asked by Beauty Box 5 to receive a box a month and review it for them. Well, twist my arm. Okay! Get makeup sent to my house and tell my readers about it? Hmm… this isn’t rocket science folks, I can do this.

Beauty Box 5 is a subscription box of monthly beauty products. For $12 you get a surprise box of 5 items. Some full size and some deluxe samples.

November is my first box. I was thrilled to receive the little robin’s egg blue package. In it were these little goodies:

Included were these items:

Model co Illusion Lip Enhancer Kit
Aveeno daily moisture lotion
LA Fresh travel light facial cleansing wipes
Simply Sparkle glitter toe spacers
NUBAR nail polish

I’m pretty much an expert with subscription boxes and love the chance to try brands I may not be familiar with.

I was happy with the Model Co lip pencil. Basically that is all it is. “Lip enhancer kit” is sort of stretching it. It’s a lip pencil people. But it’s in a perfect nude shade and the formula is soft and creamy.

The NUBAR polish is a formula without formaldehyde, or toulene and DBP. Nasty stuff that many fancy nail companies are making their formulas without.The one I got is a cute glittery top coat.

I was pleased with my first Beauty Box 5. Except the glitter toe spacers. I’m not a fan of toe spacers and don’t need a glitter set at that. But, I can’t wait to try some of their premium brands they feature, like- Becca, Ellis Faas and NUME, to name a few!

Subscribe one for yourself or gift a special someone a subscription for a Christmas present!

I’ll let you know every month what comes in my box. If you’re extra good, I’ll make a YouTube video or tutorial as well.

Yay Beauty Box 5!
