Beauty Box 5 Review: November 2015

Did all my fellow Americans have a great Thanksgiving? I totally did. Among other things, I made this awesome cranberry sauce. I’m never going to buy canned cranberry sauce again.

But enough food talk—it’s BB5 time!

Beauty Box 5 is a monthly subscription services where you spend $12 a month and they send you a box of 5 full and sample beauty products.

Time for the November box.

Silly Trisha.

Beauty Box 5 November 2015: The BoxIn the November 2015 box, I got…

This month’s box is worth easily over $30.

LA Fresh Good Day. Day Moisturizer

Beauty Box 5 November 2015: LA Fresh MoisturizerDo you love the smell of cucumbers and celery? Then you’ll love this moisturizer so much, you’ll want to eat it. Then again, if you hate those scents, you’d probably hate this stuff, because the scent is strong.

As a moisturizer, it’s pretty good. It’s light, so it’s only good for day (hence the name.)

Kaunis Facial Mask

Beauty Box 5 November 2015: Kaunis Soothing Face MaskI’ve tried a face mask like this before. In fact, they had one in my very first Beauty Box 5 exactly two years ago.

Beauty Box 5 November 2015: Kaunis Face MaskWhile it’s certainly fun to walk around my apartment looking like something from Texas Chainsaw Massacre, there were some downsides. It was soothing when it was on, but the lotion inside the mask didn’t soak into my skin at all. It just stayed on top, which made the whole thing feel like it didn’t actually work.

Altchek MD Eye Gel Pads

Beauty Box 5 November 2015: Altchek MD Eye PadsWe got two sets of sample eye pads. I was a bit confused in the video about how that compared to a full size. Turns out, there are 10 pairs in the full size, which costs $20.

Beauty Box 5 November 2015: Eye Pads in ActionYou put these on below your eyes and it cools them down, depuffing. I used them while I applied my eye makeup so it did double-duty as an eye depuffer and something to catch eye shadow fallout.

Yeah, I like these. And don’t worry: they’re not very sticky. They won’t tear at your skin when you peel them off.

Moodmatcher Luxe Twist Stick

Beauty Box 5 November 2015: Moodmatcher Luxe Twist StickSupposedly, this lip gloss changes with your mood.

Beauty Box 5 November 2015: Moodmatcher SwatchIn the tube, it’s orange. When swatched on skin, you can barely see it.

But when it hits my lips? It turns pink pretty quickly. Even 10 hours later, it’s still incredibly pink. But unfortunately, I didn’t like the pink. It was too bright and unnatural looking, like something more for kids than adults. (Sorry I didn’t get a picture!)

The All Natural Face Vegan Matte Cream Lip & Cheek Color

Beauty Box 5 November 2015: The All Natural Lip and CheekFinally, I got this cream lip and cheek color in Dusky Rose.

The color was fine, but the stuff didn’t blend well. It was splotchy. Check out the unboxing video to see just how splotchy.
