January Beauty Box 5 Box

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.

.25 oz. Nubar Green Apple Cuticle & Nail Oil. Value = $5.00

Bonus Product:

"That Awkward Moment" Mirror Compact

The total value of this month's box is $15.08. I thought this was a great box. I love exfoliating gloves. I put them on a go to town scrubbing away all the dryness on my skin. I feel so new afterwards. I use lotion everyday and this is a good travel size. The H2O products are great and this is also a perfect travel size. I recently went through my beauty items and I have a ton of lip balms so I'm not thinking I will get to this anytime soon. The bonus mirror compact is pretty cute and again it's purse size. I have been using some type of cuticle oil on my nails each night to keep them moisturized. They were so dry and icky looking but the moisturizing is working. I like that this paints on like polish, perfect!

Verdict: Beauty Box 5 rarely disappoints.
