January 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.

Contents of box with approximate retail value.  

Coastal Scents Quad 39. Value = $3.49

Sally Hansen Salon Effects in Misbehaved. Value = $9.99

.08 oz. Ultraflesh The Gold Standard Mascara in Blackout. Value = $6.36

1.7 oz. Softsoap Nutri Serums Vitamin E Body Wash. Value = $1.00??

1.7 oz. Garnier Fructis Daily Care-Fortifying Shampoo. Value = $0.97

The total approximate value of this month's box is $21.81. I don't even know what I'm going to do with those eyeshadow colors. I love the bright colors but I don't know about loving them on my face. I like the Sally Hansen nail polish strips. Lots of them including Avon don't use real nail polish so they don't last as long. While the body wash and shampoo aren't necessarily exciting they are useful. I have more mascara than I know what to do with but it will go in my pile. 

Verdict: This wasn't a super exciting box but it had useful everyday things in it.
