April 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.

Contents of box with approximate retail value.  

BH Cosmetics California Collection Eyeshadow Palette. Value = $1.50?

Nicka K New York Hydro Lipstick in Daring. Value = $4.99

Blum Naturals All Purpose Cleansing Wipes 30pk. Value = $2.49

(3) .28 oz. Jergens Natural Glow Moisturizer. Value = $2.09

Bonne Bell Lip Definer. Value = $3.95

The total value of this month's box is $15.02. I wasn't super thrilled with this box. The eyeshadow is cute and the colors aren't bad but I already have one. The Bonne Bell lip pencil reminds me of cheap drugstore makeup. Maybe Bonne Bell has changed since I was a kid but that's how I remember it. Also I don't use lip liner. The Jergens product actually works really well. I used it last year to give myself a little color and it looked great. I also don't mind the Blum cleansing wipes although they aren't great for removing mascara. The lipstick is probably my favorite item in the box. I love the red, red color.

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