November 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.

I totally forgot to post last months box.  Sorry about that but let me assure you you're not missing much.  It was very bleh box and I don't even think I took a picture of it.   

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.

Contents of with value of product and retail price of full size product in parenthesis.

FULL SIZE Swagger Cosmetics Eyeshadow in the signature swagger color. Value = $9.50

1 Envie De Nuef Eye Mask. Value = $3.00 (10 pack $30.00)

2 pkgs .17 oz./ea of Global Goddess Coconut Hair Treatment. Value = $1.19 (6 oz. $20.99) - I really liked this, my hair felt nice and soft and it smelled good. 

1 oz. bottle of Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion. Value = $1.12 (8 oz. $8.99) - great lotion to have on hand

FULL SIZE Model Co Lip Shine in Strip Tease. Value = $16.00 

$10 Gift Card for My Name Necklace - Necklaces start at $30

The total value of the box is $30.81.  This months box is much better than last months.  I was kind of shocked at the eyeshadow because of the bright blue color but I'm intrigued and I'm going to go crazy and use it.  I looked up their other colors online and they have some very cool colors with some very interesting names.  I'm a big fan of any type of hair treatment and lotions - especially with this drying winter weather coming.  

Verdict: This box is hit and miss for me but this one was pretty good.

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