September 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.

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.

September Beauty Box 5

Contents of box with approximate retail value.  

Nicka K New York Eyelight crayon in moss. Value = $4.49

.5 oz. Natural Style by FUBU Deep Conditioner & Co-Wash. Value = $0.42

Sally Hansen Toe Spacers. Value = $1.99

My Beauty Spot Nail Polish. Value = $4.17/$0.00 - My value is zero since when I opened it the first thing I noticed was nail polish all over the neck like it had leaked. The polish inside was so thick and gloopy it's unusable. 

.17oz. LashEm Chrislie Formulations 3-in-1 Eye Brights. Value = $13.33

The total approximate value of this month's box is $24.40 or 20.23 for me since I'm tossing the damaged nail polish. I could go through the process of emailing them and getting a replacement but honestly I probably wouldn't have used it anyway. I have tons of Julep, Zoya, Essie and Enchanteds to keep me in polish for the next 50 years. Also since I don't paint my toes I won't use the toe spacers but the last time I received one I put it in a gift bag so it worked out. I do love the color of the eye crayon though and can't wait to try it. I swatches it on my hand and it's really nice looking. I will definitely use the deep conditioner. At first I wasn't excited about the LashEm product but the description promises to make your eyes not look tired even if you are short on sleep. I will surely find a need for this.

Verdict: Ok box, and even though I didn't like two of the items I still got my moneys worth.
