March Beauty Box Five

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: a couple of time they have sent two of one item which I'm not a fan of.

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

Sample Size Jane's Pick All Natural Soap. Value = ??

2 oz. Tree Hut Shea Body Butter in Coconut Lime. Value = $2.14

.25 oz. Bellapierre Cosmetics Makeup Base. Value = $16.37 - This sample seems silly to me. A full size item is .29 oz. and this is .25 oz. Why wouldn't they just send a full size and not even bother making this sample size. 

Hard Candy Just Nails nail polish. Value = $3.99

Swissco Dual-Sided Facial Pad. Value = $2.00

The total value of this month's box is $24.50. This months box wasn't that exciting to me. I'm sure the makeup base is fantastic but it's not something I will use. The nail polish is ok but I'm not super excited about the color. The soap looks ok and I will probably use the facial pad but neither one of those things are super exciting to me. The best thing in this box for me this month is the shea body butter. I love their coconut lime scent and could smell it all day long.

Verdict: Beauty Box 5 rarely disappoints but this months box was just ok.
