April Beauty Box 5

This is my second Beauty Box 5 box.  You can read the review of my first box here.  For those new here (welcome!) Beauty Box 5 is a monthly subscription service for beauty products including makeup, skin care, fragrances, nail care, body care, beauty tool and just about anything else beauty related.  They have three ways to subscribe.  You can pay monthly for $12 a month, or quarterly $30 which brings the price down to $10 a month or yearly for $100 which brings the price down to $8.33 a month.  Shipping is included in these prices. 

The good:

The brands.  Well known brands including eco-friendly ones.

The pricing structure.  I like the options they have, monthly, quarterly and yearly.

Like surprises? Boxes ship out on the 15th of every month and you never know what's going to be in it.  I like surprises so this is a positive for me.  Also since this ships out in the middle of the month you get a little treasure towards the end of the month.  Most monthlies ship at the beginning. 

The not so good:

Skip a month. Currently there is no option for this.  If you want to skip you have to cancel.

Don't like surprises?  You may end up with something in your box you might not use.

 Here is the box as it arrives.  It's a tiffany blue box filled with paper and your treasures inside a little bag. 


Here are the contents.  (I listed the retail value of full size in parenthesis)

.08 oz (FULL SIZE) container of Rosebud Salve. - value $7 - I hear really good things about this, everyone who has used it raves about it.   

.5 fl oz (FULL SIZE) packet Freeman pink grapefruit exfoliating scrub - value $1.99 - I've used these before and like having them around. 

.14 oz Pur-lisse, pur-protect essential daily moisturizer spf 30 - value $4.58 (1.7oz $55)- this is nice and light, doesn't feel heavy and goes on smooth. 

1 6x8 Doctor T's Supergoop sunscreen wipe - value $1.00 (10 pk $10)

1 La Fresh waterproof makeup remover wipe - value .42 cents (24 pk $9.99)


In full size items I received $8.99 worth of product.  The total value of all the samples received is $14.99.  Not as great a the $31.93 I received last month but more than the $8.33 I paid and I will use all of these items.     

Verdict: I'm going to continue with this subscription 1. because paid for the year and 2. I like the variety of items received.  

**I pay for these services myself and am not any type of sponsor paid or unpaid for Beauty Box 5
