Unboxing: Babebox Summer Box


Info: $30.00 CAD (plus tax), 8 items, shipping included in price

Babebox is a Canadian seasonal box that introduces you to new items in beauty, fashion & entertainment.

I found them on twitter and was intrigued to try them out because I love monthly subscription boxes and they are based out of Toronto, Canada. Currently, they only ship within Canada.

I think they are relatively new subscription service since I can’t find too much information on their boxes outside of the website.

What I like about Babebox is that they have an active blog on their website that talks about the products sent out in the boxes, discuss trends and great finds.

Now on to what I’ve received;

COLAB Dry Shampoo

Full Size: $12.65 (200mL), Sample Price: $3.16 (50mL)

I’ve recently signed up for a bootcamp so I find that I reach for dry shampoo when I’m home to spruce up my hair in-between washing it. These come in either a sheer or extreme volume formula and there are a range of different scents. Each scent is named after a city, I have New York which is a Fruity scent (I have not opened mine up though to describe the smell, sorry!!!

Pro:voke Touch of Silver Brightening Shampoo

Full Size: $12.65 (150mL), Sample Size: $4.22 (50mL)

This is a nice purple shampoo for those with blonde, grey or white hair to brighten it up. I have light brown hair so I might be able to use it to get my highlights to pop this summer. It also has a really delicious berry-like scent that I’m really liking.

I love…Raspberry & Blackberry Bubble Bath

Full Size: $6.98 (500mL), Sample Size: $0.42 (30mL)

OOHHH! BUBBLE BATH!!!! Just makes me feel like a kid again! Nothing is more fun then having a nice bubble bath after a long hot day in the sun.

Essie Viva Antigua Summer 2016 Collection

Full Size: $10.00 (13.5mL), Sample Price: $3.70 (5mL) x4 =$14.81

These shades are super cute! I was eyeing the Viva Antigua collection when it came out so I’m happy I got these  4 minis! I have coconut cove (creamy white), berried treasures (candy red), viva antigua (turquoise green with tiny sparkles), loot the booty (royal blue with tiny sparkles). I immediately put viva antigua on my toes because this colour screams summer to me.

Lovestruck Vera Wang

Full Size: 41.51 (50mL), Sample Size: $3.32 (4mL)

This is such a pretty scent, the babe blog describes this best: “musky floral with your standard fruit bomb opening (tart guava jam and citrus)”. I do like this perfume, it’s too bad it’s discontinued which is a bit strange because I thought the box was supposed to bring you new items in beauty as their website claims, not products that are no longer available.

Montagne Jennesse Passion Peel Off Mask

image
Full Size: $2.00 (10mL), Sample Size: $1.20 (6mL)

This is a deep cleansing mask with pulped pomegrantate, passion flower, raspberry, grape, cranberry & vitamin E. I don’t really like using peel off masks for my whole face but I’m sure this would be good for spot treatments.

Zevia Zero Calorie Soda in Ginger Ale

$8.95 (6 pack), $1.49 (1 can)

SODA!!! What!!! I’ve actually never tried this brand before and after looking at the babe box website I understood why the sent this, on their blog they included a few cocktail mixes that you can make using this soda. I figure this is to play on the summer box theme and adds a little something different to any other box!

My Thoughts

I’m into the essie polishes, dry shampoo, bubble bath and intrigued by the zevia soda. The face mask and perfume I’m not super excited for. Am I going to get the Fall box? Not sure yet. I’m not overly excited by the products but willing to give them a try. I think that with time the items can only get better, but currently the value of this box is less than what it costs to receive. Total Value:$28.61

What do you think of BabeBox?

Lots of Luv,

Dal

*I received this box at a bloggers discount for reviewing purposes. As always, this is my honest opinion

    • I would have never found it if it wasn’t for Twitter. I currently subscribe to two on a monthly basis but have been looking for a new one- I was hoping this could it but I’m not sure the items are what I’d want every season.

  1. Oooh have not heard of Babebox! Hmm the box is ok, it’s nice to have a mix of beauty and lifestyle – would have loved to see something fashion-related.
    I love the volume version of the COLAB dry shampoo – haven’t tried the New York scent though.
    So awesome you got 4 Essie minis – Viva Antigua is the perfect summer toe polish shade!
