May 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.

May Beauty Box 5 Fresh and Focused Box.

Contents of box with approximate retail value.  

MaskerAide Hydrating Facial Sheet Mask. Value = $5.99

H2O Plus Aqualibrium Marine Cleansing Gel. Value $1.20

(3) Ban Total Refresh Cooling Body Cloths. Value = $0.30/ea.

small vial Harvey Prince Hello fragrance. Value = $0.56

Cattiva Precisione Waterproof Eye Liner. Value = $20.00

The total value of this month's box is $28.65. This box was way better than last months. I love me a good face mask and this one looks fun. I've heard about the cooling body cloths and I'm wondering how it works. Is it just that they are wet so they cool you down? Anyway with 100+ degree days in my neck of the wood I'm sure I'll use them. I've received quite a few H2O products in these boxes and I don't mind them. This is a cleansing gel which I can always use. I'm going on vacation soon so I may take it with me. I have a whole ton of little perfume samples but I do enjoy trying different ones and I love the ones that have the little spray tops on them. The Cattiva eyeliner is the high value item in the box but I'm not a fan of waterproof eyeliner because it either never comes off or smears when you don't want it to. Anyone have experience with this brand?

Verdict: This box was way better than last months. I'm very curious about the cooling cloths.
