December 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.

December Beauty Box 5 - Merry & Bright

Contents of box with approximate retail value.  

2 oz. Jaqua Raspberry Buttercream Frosting Hand Créme. Value = $12.50

Absolute! New York Nail Polish Remover Pads. Value = $2.99

.26 oz. Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Moisturizer. Value = $9.95

Nanacoco nail polish in Sweeter than Sweet. Value = $3.95

.04 oz. Lucky Brand Lucky Number 6 Eau de Parfume. Value = $1.25

The total approximate value of this month's box is $30.68. When I looked through this box the first thing that came to mind was stocking stuffers. That's exactly what I'm going to do with a few of these items. I didn't open the lotion yet but I can smell it through the packaging and it smells yummy. I was wondering though what meadowfoam seed oil is? Have you ever heard of such a thing? Anyhow I googled it and it's a real thing. The meadowfoam is a flower native to Northern California (who knew?) and the seeds are used in cosmetics frequently. 

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