Beauty Box 5 Review - Monthly Makeup Subscription Boxes - May 2013

I recently signed up for a Beauty Box 5 subscription – and I don’t know why I didn’t do it sooner!

Cool Way Transform Styling Spray – 3,3 oz Value $12.50

I am so excited to try this styling spray – it’s sulfate and phthalate, and paraben free! Also – it looks like it gets great reviews!

LA FRESH Travel-lite Antiperspirant Wipe for Women (2) – Value $1

I love LA FRESH wipes (my favorite ones are from the eco-friendly line). These are going in my purse and I’m sure will come in handy some day!

Model Co Eyeliner – Value $18

Ferro Cosmetics Eye Shadow in Espresso – deluxe sample – Value $10

I had never heard of Model Co products before subscription boxes – but now I’m turning into a Model Co collector thanks to all these boxes. I love the built in pencil sharpener too! This Ferro eye shadow might be my favorite item in the box – I love the shimmer and the espresso color (and it’s another paraben-free cosmetic find!)

Verdict: I paid $10 for this box (I signed up for the 3 month subscription plan) and the value of these items is over $40! I also love that everything is either full size, or in a large enough size for me to really try the product. What did you think of the May Beauty Box 5?

    1. I don’t see any recent box reviews or comments on this – is this still around and does everyone still like it?

    2. I just wanted to mention also if you sign up for a year ($100) you only end up paying about 8.33 a month. You get 2 months free!! Amazing beauty box deal price wise out there that I’ve found. :) I’ve been subscribed 3 months and definitely gotten my money worth and then some!

    3. Sold! I’m swapping out Birchbox for this one.

    4. I just subbed to the year of this, it was so cheap and I am so excited by getting a beauty subscription box. This way even if I don’t do any others for money reasons, I get to enjoy this one for the next year :) I don’t think I’ll get May’s box, just June’s. But I guess I’ll find out soon enough!

    5. I’ve been getting this box since you first posted it on your blog (almost a year ago maybe?) I got the year subscription for $100 which is a great deal. And this box keeps getting better and better!

    6. BB5 was the first sub box I ever subscribed to. If you get a year membership for $100 it works out to $8.33 per box! That’s the cheapest sub box deal anywhere!
