September 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.

September Beauty Box 5 - On The Go 
Contents of box with approximate retail value.  

FULL SIZE Bella Pierre Cosmetics Celebration Shimmer Powder. Value = $15.00

FULL SIZE Body Drench Lip Drench in Coconut Lime. Value = $4.99

4 pack Fine Featherheads Fly Ties in jewel tones. Value = $7.95

3ml. Skiin Shop Skin Smoothing & Soothing Eye Cream. Value = $7.99

3 pack Every Beauty Makeup Remover Pads w/Argan Oil. Value = $0.42

The total value of this month's box is $36.35. I was excited to see all the stuff in this months box. When I opened the box it looked so colorful and fun. I love these little hair ties and I absolutely love the color. The shimmer powder is a really pretty copper color that I think will look great with my skin color. I use makeup remover wipes every night but have never tried one with argan oil. These say you just wet it, use it and no rinsing is required. I like the idea of no rinsing and hopefully the argan will be nice on my skin. If these work out that would be fantastic since they are only $6.99 for a 50 pack! The lip balm is really nice. I like the flavor because it reminds me of a margarita with a splash of coconut. The eye cream is just ok. I have lots of eye creams right now so this will go into the pile to try later.

Verdict: This months box was terrific!
