May Beauty Box 5 box

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 BR-C-S51 brush. Value = $2.49

.24 oz. Dermalogica Active Moist lotion. Value = $5.86

BioSwiss Mini Tweezer. Value = $4.98

2 oz. Essenza Rosemary Mint Hand Soap. Value = $0.63

Styli-Style Glide-On Blush Stick in Bittersweet. Value = $6.49

The total approximate value of this month's box is $20.45. I'm happy with everything in this box except the blush. I'm just not a regular blush person. The tweezers are great for me because I'm going to throw them in my travel bag. I also forget to bring tweezers so this is perfect. I like the dermalogica products, even getting a travel size is great. I don't really need another eyeshadow brush but I'll take it. I think I have enough extras to keep a whole set in my travel bag. The hand lotion smells yummy. I think I'll use it in my kitchen. 

Verdict: This box was a good value for me.
