Hey lovlies!  I’m here with the latest Beauty Box 5 Review and Fab Five Find of the Month.  By now, you hopefully know the deal on how the Fab Five Find of the Month works.  If not, check out any of our past Beauty Box 5 Reviews to learn more:

What is Beauty Box 5?

Beauty Box 5 is a subscription-based, beauty sampling program that delivers a box filled with 5 cosmetic/beauty samples to your door every month!  The best part is that the monthly subscription is only $12/month.  Or, if you want to pay even less sign-up for a quarterly subscription which is $30/quarter ($10/month) or an annual subscription for $99 ($8.25/month).

Each month you get a box filled with full-size and sample-size 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!

January Beauty Box 5 Shipment

In the January Beauty Box 5, I received the following items:

H2O Plus Spa Sea Lotus Body Wash ($17.00/12.5 fl oz,

Nubar Cuticle & Nail Oil ($10.00/0.5 fl oz,

Swissco Bath & Shower Exfoliating Gloves ($5.00/pair,

Jergens Daily Moisturizer ($6.9/21 fl oz,

Epic Blend Hemp Coconut Lip Balm ($3.39/each,

Bonus Product: That Awkward Moment Mirror Compact (

After careful consideration, this month’s Fab Five Find of the Month is . . .

None of the items. 

You can hear me out in the video below.  I didn’t hate any one thing.  I just didn’t LOVE any one thing either.  And, if you’ve watched past videos you know that I’m SUPER passionate about my Fab Five Find of the Month.  The video review gives you some further insight into my decision.

I definitely wouldn’t expect every single month to be a winner.  And hey, 3 products out of 20 (thus far) that I have loved enough to rave about (and go out and purchase myself) really isn’t that bad.

Plus, between us, the February Beauty Box 5 shipment was incredible.  And, not only do I have one Fab Find Five of the Month . . . I’ve got two!  That’s right.  I couldn’t decide which I loved more!!!  For a sneak peek at one of the items, follow YCS on Instagram and you’ll be sure to spot it!
