February 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.  

Marsk Mineral Eyeshadow in Vanilla Frosting. Value = $22.50

Revlon Colorstay nail enamel in Velvet Rope. Value = $3.99

Absolute Love Strawberry Lip Balm. Value = $5.00

Avon Big Color Eye Pencil in natural vibe. Value = $3.49

BB5 Bonus: To celebrate their birthday

yourMinerals $20 gift card. Value = $?? - You have to spend at least $7 to use this. Still a good deal though if you like this brand. 

The total approximate value of this month's box is $41.88. I received the glamglow in another box and although it wasn't as exciting as everyone made it out to be I liked it and still use it. I'm not too excited about the Revlon nail polish because I already have so many reds. I was surprised to see Avon in the box but when I went to the Avon website to find swatches I couldn't find it anywhere. I'm wondering if it's a discontinued product. I'm really excited to try the Marsk eye shadow although I wish it were another color. 

Verdict: This was a fun box. The eyeshadow alone paid for the box.
