August 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.

I actually received this box on the 12th of this month but it was missing the purlisse and nail polish. I was bummed because I love the purlisse product. I emailed the company and they responded within a day or two. It took about 2 weeks but they sent me the 2 missing items. 

Price: $12 a month with no option to skip. Discounts for 3 and 12 month plans. 

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.

July Beauty Box 5 Summer Chic

Contents of box with approximate retail value.  

.5 oz. Purlisse Pur Protect SPF30. Value = $16.00

La Fresh Travel Lite Makeup Remover Wipes. Value = $1.99

Nanacoco Lip Gloss. Value = $3.99

1.05 oz. pkt Novex Brazilian Keratin hair treatment. Value = $0.62

.25 oz. Style Essentials Nail Polish in a teal color. Value = $1.75

The total approximate value of this month's box is $24.35. This box was worth it for the Purlisse product alone. The boyfriend uses it daily since he's riding a motorcycle all day. I even found someone on eDivv who was looking to trade their whole box and we made a swap. Totally awesome for me. I'm also liking the travel face wipes, something I use everyday. The lip color is ok but I'll probably swap it. I try and use a hair treatment once every couple of weeks so I'll definitely use this. The nail color isn't a brand I'm familiar with and I'm not sure about the color so that might get swapped also.

Verdict: I'm so glad they sent my missing items! Great box.
