October’s Beauty Box 5 {Review}

For the past few months, I’ve been reviewing the Beauty Box 5 subscription box on a monthly basis. October’s beauty box didn’t disappoint, and before I share the great products from it, below is a quick rundown of how Beauty Box 5 works, giving you the opportunity to try out hair, makeup and skincare products at a fraction of their full price.


  • Go to BeautyBox5.com and sign up for a monthly subscription for $12 each month (less if you purchase for the quarter or year)
  • Receive five deluxe samples and full-sized beauty, hair and skincare products from top brands delivered right to your door each month
  • Post an Instagram pic of your Beauty Box 5 and include #bb5fave and @beautybox5 for a chance to win five full-size versions of the products
  • If you don’t win, head back over to BeautyBox5Shop.com to purchase full-size versions of the products you loved

October’s Beauty Box 5 includes items from ChapStick, Nanacoco, Extend Your Beauty, Lashem and Bellapierre Cosmetics. Read on for more on each of these beauty products!

  • ChapStick Dual-Ended Hydration Lock: As a lip gloss addict, I can’t go anywhere without at least a few in my bag at a time. I love this new ChapStick because it’s 2-in-1 – a conditioning SPF ChapStick for daytime and then tamanu oil and natural butters that replenish your lips at night. ($3)
  • Bellapierre Cosmetics Cheek and Lip StainMuch like the ChapStick above, I’m a big fan of products that do double duty, and this cheek and lip stain does exactly that. For some reason I tend to stick to powder blushes, but I did like this cheek stain. It’s easy to blend and the pink color is very natural looking. It also worked well as a lip stain – layer it on and blend until you get the color you want! ($20)
  • Extend Your Beauty Cosmetic ToolIf you’ve ever had a hard time getting the last of your beauty products out of the bottle, this tool is for you. It’s even dishwasher safe! ($5.50)
  • Nanacoco Nail Polish – Mermaid LakeThis blue shimmer nail polish is very fun and playful. I tried it out on my toes when I went on vacation and it was a nice change from my usual bright pink. ($4)
  • Lashem Picture Perfect Instant Wrinkle ReducerApply this serum to your face after cleansing to reduce fine lines and give you a great glow. It also works as a primer, creating a smooth surface to apply makeup to. ($40)
