Beauty Box 5 Review – July 2013 – Makeup Subscription

Beauty Box 5 Review - July 2013 - Makeup Subscription

I started subscribing to Beauty Box 5 a few months ago, and so far I’ve been very impressed with the value in each box. (It’s especially impressive considering you can get this box for as little as $8 a month with an annual subscription). If you are looking for an inexpensive makeup subscription box – I definitely recommend Beauty Box 5!

Each Beauty Box 5 comes with a card detailing each item and the retail cost of the full size version of the item.

Be a Bombshell Lip Gloss in Vixen – FULL SIZE! Value $14

It’s always a win when the first item you take out of the box is worth more than what you paid for the entire box!

Every Beauty Foot Smoother  – Value $9

I can never have enough hand sanitizer, so these wipes will be a perfect addition to my purse. I also think I’m most excited about this foot smoother! I gave it a quick try and I’m happy with he results, plus the design makes it really easy to hold.

Verdict: I paid $10 for this box and received over $30 worth of product – not bad! This month had a good mix of products, and definitely a good value. What was your favorite item in the July Beauty Box 5?

  1. Hi :)
    This probably isn’t the correct place to ask, but I have a question on multi-month subs & haven’t been able to find the answer. If I were to subscribe to a service like BB5 for a year to get the best rate am I charged the full year upfront? Or am I committing to authorize them to charge my card monthly for a year? If you can answer I’d really appreciate it!
    Thanks!!

  2. I received nearly the same box as you. Instead of the H20+ facial treatment I received an Airelle Berrimatrix “Age Defying Facial Serum” sample. It’s a .25oz sample and the regular size is .85oz and retails at $158. So if I’m doing my math corrently [big “if”] this sample is worth about $46.50, which is four times the cost of the box on its own. Interested to see if I notice any results!

  3. I got the same as you and I am not that excited this month….my lipgloss was SUPER bright pink….gave it immediately to my co-worker. I like the pedi sponge and the other three things are meh….not too exciting. My three month subscription is up next month and I may put my money elsewhere….we’ll see!

    • I got the super bright lipgloss as well. :( I also received one in another box) :( :(

  4. I think I’m going to buy a 6 month subscription for my birthday (which is in Sept.) My husband will be leaving to Alabama in a couple weeks for 2 months so, he won’t be here for my birthday. :-(
    I told him only subscription boxes could make up for his absence! LOL! ;-)
