December 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.  Each month you receive 4-5 samples of beauty related items.  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 all 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.

All the items in this months box were full size.  How awesome is that. 

Contents of box with retail value.  

16 pack of Jean Pierre Cosmetics Exfoliating Facial Cleansing Pads. Value = $1.99 - I really like these.  They exfoliating part works really well and I feel like I'm scrubbing the bad stuff off my face.  I can see using these in the future.  

Everyday Minerals Flat Top Brush. Value = $12.99

1 MaskerAide Hydrating Facial Sheet Mask. Value = $4.99

OFRA Cosmetics 3D Eye shadow in Golden Sparkle. Value = $19.90

Demeter Roll On Perfume Oil. Value = $10.00

The total value of the box is $49.87.  The cleansing pads look interesting.  I use Neutrogena cloths every night so I'm going to try these.  I like to use the face masks in the bath so I'll give this a try.  At first I thought the OFRA product was a blush but when I realized it was an eye shadow I was happy.  It's a really nice bronze color.  The Demeter oils are nice to throw in your purse or travel bag.  This months box has some really great things in it.    

Verdict: Lots of fun goodies for $10.00!

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