July 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.  

FULL SIZE Ofra Lip Gloss. Value = $12.95

FULL SIZE OFra Lip Liner. Value = $13.00

Nanacoco Nail Polish in Dazzle Purple. Value = $3.00

(2) .03 oz. Love Life Skin Intensive Recovery Serum. Value = $4.55/ea.

(2) .03 oz. Love Life Skin Restorative Night Cream. Value = $0.45/ea.

Pur-lisse Flash Tattoo's. Value = $??

The total approximate value of this month's box is $38.95 plus the tattoo's The box card said a full size version of the tattoo's is $9.00 but this isn't full size. I'm guess it's about $4 or $5. I wasn't thrilled with this box. I don't use lip liner and the lip gloss color is not for me. The nail polish is ok but I'm not a fan of this brand. The Love Life Skin products I'll try because I have them but I'm not really excited by them. As for the tattoo's, they aren't my thing but since I've got quite the collection of them I think I'll have some fun and use them. 

Verdict: This box was not a great one for me.
