June Beauty Box 5

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 some eco-friendly ones.

The pricing structure.  I like the options they have, monthly, quarterly and yearly.  Even the quarterly gives you a little bit of a discount. 

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. 

Information: They have started including an information cards on the products in the boxes which I love

The not so good:

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

My treasures!

Contents of June box.  Full Size price and size listed in parenthesis. 

.02 oz. Blinc Eyeliner. value $2.60 (.21 oz $26.00) - This was very wet and tricky to put on .  The good thing is it lasted all day even in hot weather.  I tried peeling it off at night which didn't really work, it more starting flaking off.  I did come off easily with a Neutrogena facial towel

Full Size .07oz. The All Natural Face Vegan Mineral Eyeshadow in Orange Ice Storm. value $3.50 - I love this eyeshadow.  It's so pretty and simmery.  I love the way it looks and how it went on.  It didn't really last the whole day though. I work in an office setting and at the end of my 8 hours it had pretty much faded out.    

Full Size 50 sheets Blum Naturals Oil Absorbing Facial Tissues.  value $2.99

.06 oz. Everyday Minerals Girl Friday Blush. value $4.99 (.17 oz. $10.99)

1 Comodynes Easy Peeling New Face Effect. value $1.62 (8 pk $12.99)

I received 5 items 2 of them full size and the total value of my box this month is $15.70.  I have received items from The All Natural Face in my eco-emi box and I really like their products so I'm excited to try this.  The facial tissues will be nice for the summer time.  I'm not to into blush so it may be awhile before I try this.         

Verdict: I'm going to continue with this subscription because paid for the year and 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.
