Hi my loves! Unfortunately boys, today’s post is for the ladies! Recently, I was invited to join the product review team for Beauty Box 5 (

What is Beauty Box 5?
I’m so glad you asked! Beauty Box 5 is a subscription-based, beauty sampling program that delivers a box filled with 5 cosmetic samples to your door every month. The best part? It’s only $12/month! I think I spend $12/day on Starbucks or iTunes! The quarterly subscription is $30/quarter ($10/month) and the annual subscription is $99/year ($8.25/month).

Each month you get a box filled with full-size and sample-size cosmetic products selected by the Beauty Box 5 beauty editors. The products are a mix of luxury items, everyday items, commonly known brands, niche brands, and eco-conscious brands. The box includes a variety of products including hair care, make-up, skin care, nail care, etc. Pretty much, you get a whole bunch of beauty awesomeness in one tiny package – which is shipped to your home for free! Who doesn’t love cool stuff with free shipping!?!?

What is this Fab Five Find of the Month Business?
Another great question! Each month, I’ll try out all five products included in the Beauty Box 5 package and share with you my FAVORITE product a.k.a the “Fab Five Find.” I’ll highlight each product in my monthly review, but, I’ll shoot a special video telling you all about the item I picked as my Fab Five Find. You guys know me and you know that I give very honest reviews on YCS (Weave Bar/Suite Extension ). So, if a product is my Fab Five Find of the Month then you KNOW it’s gotta be good!

“This unique, nude pencil easily enhances your natural shape while keeping lips soft and nourished with cocoa and shea butter.”
