Beauty Box 5

Beauty Box 5 is a new beauty subscription service. This month is their 1st box. I am happy to be a part of it and am excited to see what is to come. This is very similar to others like BirchBox and My Glam Bag where they offer you 4-5 samples and maybe a full size one too. They do not say deluxe size samples though. This box is $12/month which is a bit more than others.
It will contain makeup, skin care, hair care, fragrances and a few other surprises! You can learn about your samples directly on BB5's site, There will be How-to’s, beauty tips and tricks.
You can also review your samples there too and can purchase full size products from their site.
"The Bonus: 
Sharing is caring! Share BB5 with five of your friends and start earning free subscriptions! 5 Friends = 1 Free Month" So if you would like to join or sign up I would so Love if you join by clicking on this link HERE!!!! I could get you to join under me and I could earn a free box.

So let's get down to the 1st BB5 Box.
It has a very cute little bag that matches the Box. I thought it was a cute touch

 Included in the box were:
Smith's Rose Bud Salve 
* Full size 0.8oz  $7.00
* Full size given $7.00
This is new to me. I have never heard of this before, but I heard my dad talking about Salves all the time. I just figured he mean some medicine to apply to any wounds/injuries Rosebud Salve has been in use for over a century per  BB5 website. It helps relieves chapped and dry skin, diaper rash, blemishes, and irritations. Can be used as a moisturizer and lip gloss which I did. The smell is strange, but the consistency is AWESOME! A little goes a long way too. A little dap will do ya. Says to try on your dry elbows and knees too.

 PRITI NYC Soy Nail Polish Remover wipe                                              *Full size 10 pads $10.00                                                                      *Sample given 1 pad $1.00 
These are convenient to carry in your purse, pocket, car or anywhere. They are 100% biodegradable, non-toxic and non-carcinogenic. Derived from farm crops and lemongrass oil. This is fantastic for you organic nature lovers. I haven't used it, but will very soon. Be sure to check back for the update here on this  post. 

Comodynes Self Tanning wipe                                                         *Full size 8 wipes for $17.00                                                            *Sample Given  1 wipe approx $2.12
I have never use tanning wipes before. I am always leery of the STREAK effect. I am so white so I think it will be VERY noticeable if I mess it up. Again will post later the results

 WELEDA Hydrating Night and Day Cream 
*Full size Day Cream 1.0 fl oz $20.00
*Sample size 0.17 fl oz approx $3.33

*Full Size Night Cream 1.0 fl oz $21.00
*Sample size 0.17 fl oz approx $3.50

Approximate Value of the 1st BB% box is $16.95
Considering the cost we paid, this is a fair switch. I am very curious to know what is to come. I am definitely intrigued and let's see how this box compares to others. I want to know how BB5 will stand out to the others. Will this be more skin care, beauty, makeup, hair or other random things?
