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.  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 had let my subscription expire but I decided I really like this box for the price so I subscribed again.

This subscription ships the the US and Canada from Austin, Texas. 

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.

Doubles: Sometimes they send two of one item which I'm not a fan of (see below)

June Beauty Box 5
Contents of box with approximate retail value.  

1 oz. Coolway Cool Cleanse Shampoo. Value = $2.91

1 oz. Coolway Cool Cleanse Conditioner. Value = $2.91

(2) .27 oz. packets Just Being Sexy Body Bronzer. Value = $2.21/ea. - Wow, this is really bronze! I used it on my legs and they certainly were shimmery. I used one packet over 3 days on my legs. A little goes a long way with this stuff.

.5 oz. Aveeno Protect + Hydration Sunscreen. Value = $1.67

small pot Brazen Cosmetics Eyeshadow in commando. Value = $?? - This is a purple color and it's ok but I like my shadow a little more pigmented. It makes a nice base color though. 

The total value of this month's box is $11.91 plus a little more for the eyeshadow. I'm happy with the shampoo and conditioner. With all the shampoo and conditioner I've received in various boxes I haven't needed to buy any in several months! I really like Aveeno products and I use sunscreen everyday. The body bronzer I'm not not excited about. I guess if you are going to bronze your whole body then two packets would be necessary but I usually only use these on my legs.

Verdict: This months box had useful items. I hope next month is a little more exciting though.
