November Beauty Box 5 - Gracefully Grounded

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.

November Beauty Box 5 - Gracefully Grounded

Contents of box with approximate retail value.  

After feather 2 oz. Refillable Travel bottle. Value = $4.48

DenTek Floss Picks + Case. Value = $1.25

18 ml HASK Macadamia Revitalizing Shine Oil. Value = $2.99

Laura Ashley Sweet Peony Body Butter. Value = $3.33

1.8 oz. Dove Deep moisture Body Wash. Value = $2.27

The total approximate value of this month's box is $14.32. I thought they curated a great travel box. I like the dental picks box, although carrying a box of floss is just as easy but I'm still going to use this. I love macadamia and organ oil and when I travel I usually don't take it with me because I have a large bottle. I think I will use this and just refill it from my larger bottle. The Dove body wash is also perfect travel size which I love. At first I wasn't to into the refillable travel bottle but I don't hassle with the bag and bottles carryon rules. It's just easier not to take it. The bottle is really pretty though so I'm going to fill it with something, mouthwash maybe?

Verdict: I'm super happy with this months box. It had items I will definitely use.
