August 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)

Contents of box with approximate retail value.  

FULL SIZE Be a Bombshell eyeshadow in Divine Value = $14.00

Swissco Nail File. Value = $1.50

.27 oz. H2O Plus Aquafirm + Micro-Collagen Moisturizer. Value = $8.00

2 oz. Bask Heavenly Silk Daily Skin Lotion. Value = $1.82

.25 oz. Nubar Nail Laquer Nubar Red. Value = $4.00

The total value of this month's box is $29.32. I really enjoyed this box this month. I actually like the eyeshadow. It's a cross between a purple and a blue. I can always use new nail files. I haven't tried this one yet but I hope it's good. I really like the Julep nail files. I use lotion and moisturizer everyday so I will use both of these products. The nail polish is small but I'm ok with that because I have so much. The only bummer is I love this red color so I'm gonna miss it when it's gone.

Verdict: This months box was terrific!
