As you guys know, I absolutely love trying new beauty products. It’s one of my absolute favorite things! So when Beauty Box 5 offered to send a box my way to try out, I was all for it! I couldn’t wait to see what products would come in my box!

Here’s a peek into my August Beauty Box 5:

It is always so exciting to try out new beauty products! I felt like I was opening a little treasure chest! Subscription boxes are awesome because you never know what treasures you are going to find inside!


August’s Beauty Box is bringing you products that recognize the brilliant beauty that you are and adding the finishing touches to carry your carefree attitude well into the fall. Embrace beaming skin, dazzling lips, and lustrous locks to keep you glowing!

The goodies included were:

  1. Purlisse Pur~protect SPF 30 
  2. La Fresh Travel Lite Facial Cleansing Wipes
  3. Nanacoco Lip Gloss
  4. Novex Brazilian Keratin
  5. Style Essentials Nail Polish


Purlisse Pur~protect SPF 30

Shield your skin and soak up some rays without guilt or greasiness! This lightweight moisturizer has the perfect amount of SPF to protect your pretty face and won’t upset sensitive complexions.


La Fresh Travel Lite Facial Cleansing Wipes 

Refresh that gorgeous face of yours! We keep these portable wipes in our bags to easily cleanse away the long day. Plus, since they condition with vitamin E, aloe, and cucumber, they’re gentle enough for all skin types and calm your complexion in a snap.


Nanacoco Lip Gloss

Your lips deserve a rush of color and shine with no stickiness attached! We adore Nanacoco’s gloss because it’s packed full of pigments and vitamin E to keep your sassy pout poppin’ and nourished at the same time.


Novex Brazilian Keratin

Is your mane hungry for nourishment? This intensive treatment works on all hair types, so you can renew and reinforce your strands right away. BB5 tip: massage this into your tresses post shampoo, leave in for 25 minutes, then rinse for smoothness and shine.


Style Essentials Nail Polish

Bored with plain polish? Wave hello to shiny, exciting nails! This lavish lacquer adds a pretty dash of color and fun finish to your digits, and the easy-to-apply brush makes switching to a new hue simple!


It was a nice variety of beauty products, and definitely a few things that I love to use almost daily! I absolutely love the Cleansing Wipes, they are so convenient for quickly removing my makeup or just simply refreshing my skin and the Purlisse skin moisturizer SPF was awesome, I have very sensitive skin so I apply sun screen often and so it is great to have a sun screen that moisturizes also. I just completely fell in love with these two products the most!!

I love the nail polish! You can’t go wrong with glitter! I use it as a top coat over my favorite color and it looks fantastic and so sparkly! The lip gloss looks so great on as well. All shine and beauty with no yucky stickiness.

I would’ve never known most of these products existed if they wouldn’t have come in my sample box!

How to get your beauty box

It’s super easy to sign up to get your own beauty box! They ship to the lower 48 United States and Canada.

It’s $12 per month (if you subscribe on a monthly basis) or if you sign up for 3 months, it’s $30 (or $10 per month). A very small price to pay for the samples that you’ll be getting. Plus free shipping on the boxes!

  1. I love beauty boxes, it’s like getting a Birthday gift every month, and you get to try new products and fall in love with some. I love the nail polishes!

  2. There are so many subscription boxes but this one looks worth the money. Beauty products are so expensive that it’s great to try before you buy.

  3. Oooooo! This looks great. I love beauty products and subscription boxes. I’m impressed by the full size gloss and polish! I just started a subscription to ipsy. This may be my next one to try.

  4. I love this idea. I like that you can try products before really purchasing them. I love the beauty box every month and can’t wait to see what surprises are in the box. Exciting!!!

  5. very neat box with some great products in it my daughter would like these boxes filled with all these nice product and its pretty neat that each box has different products each month thanks for sharing

  6. That is a very nice assortment of products you got. I have always wanted to join one of those monthly box services, but haven’t had the guts yet! I’m very interested in trying that sunscreen after ready your thoughts on it. Thank you 🙂

  7. I was actually a bit dissaponted in this box….it just didn’t wow me. I’ve definatelt gotten better boxes from I cancelled as I’d rather spend the money on a box I’m thrilled with. This one I’ll use the purlisse and try the wipes but that’s really the only things I was interested in from this box…. My lipgloss seems brighter than yours, it’s an incredibly bright bold loud hot pink color….seems more suited to a teenager….and I just don’t use glitter nail polish so will likely give those two to my step daughter…. I also got the new Walmart box this month and while it was similar (also had a lipgloss, a hair product sample and a nail polish) it also had several other items and was only $5…..the Walmart box was better in my opinion, the full size deodorant included was worth double the cost of the box itself…. I’m keeping the Walmart one but cancelled BB5 for now…

  8. My brother’s gf loves these subscription boxes. I’ve never tried one, but it looks cool. It would be so fun to get, wondering what kind of goodies are inside!

  9. I’m not a big beauty buff, but I think the cleanser wipes would be awesome for travel! I rarely put on makeup and when I do, I hate having to make sure I have makeup remover to go along with it! These would be perfect. The nail polish is a bit out there for me–but my sister would love it!

  10. This is a fabulous box that I would love to have. i travel a great deal and would use every product. I especially like the Keratin to treat my dry curly hair.
