October 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.

October Beauty Box 5

Contents of box with approximate retail value.  

Chapstick Hydration Lock Anti-Aging Formula. Value = $2.99

.176 oz. Bellapierre Cheek and Lip Stain in Pink. Value = $11.36

Extend Your Beauty Cosmetic Tool 6". Value = $5.49

Nanacoco nail polish in Romantic Cruise Value = $3.95

.17oz. LashEm Picture Perfect Instant Wrinkle Reducer. Value = $1.32

The total approximate value of this month's box is $25.11. I gotta be honest I wasn't super thrilled with this box. I will use the chapstick because it's chapstick and that's always useful. I've been wanting to try the beauty tool thing but when I started thinking about it I don't really have anything to use it on. My mom wears foundation and the specific color has been discontinued so maybe I'll give it to her so she can get every last drop out. The lip/cheek stain is VERY pink. I might be able to get away with it on my lips but not on my cheeks for sure. I don't have visible wrinkles but I might use the wrinkle reducer for those days when I have tired eyes. The nail polish is not my color at all. I have a very similar Julep color called Jessica and it looked terrible on me.

Verdict: I'm not thrilled with this months box but I'm hoping I can trade a few items.
