October 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.

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.

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.

Contents of box with approximate retail value.  

1 oz. Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion. Value = $0.87

.16 oz. Model Co. Cheek & Lip Tint in Rosy Red. Value = $11.00

Swissco Glitter Toe Separators. Value = $2.00

8 pack La  Fresh Travel Lite-Facial Cleansing Wipes. Value = $1.99

.25 oz. Nubar nail polish in Kristal. Value =$4.00 


The total value of this month's box is $19.86. The items I'm really excited about are the nail polish, lotion and facial wipes. These are all things I use all the time. I'm glad I got the sparkly nail polish also because like putting sparkle on top of color. The toe separators are ok and pretty but I won't use them. I never paint my own toes I've heard good things about the cheek & lip tint. I know I had some from another box but I either lost it or gave it away. This size is great for the purse though.

Verdict: This months box had some very useful products for me.
