Beauty Box 5 Review – October 2013
I’ve been subscribing to Beauty Box 5 for a few months now and I’m very happy with this beauty subscription. Currently I’m on the three month plan ($30 for 3 months), but I’m thinking of upgrading to the annual plan – it would then be the cheapest beauty box I subscribe to – $8.25 a month with annual subscription.
This review is of the October 2013 Beauty Box 5 box. This box shipped out a little later in the month than usual, but Beauty Box 5 emailed me on October 11th letting me know there would be a delay and why (an issue with the inserts). I love proactive communication from subscription box companies when there are any issues, so this was fine with me!
The Box: Beauty Box 5
The Cost: $12 a month (or $10 a month with a 3-month subscription; $8.25 a month with annual subscription)
The Products: 4-5 full size and sample size beauty products.
Ships to: US and Canada
Each box comes with a card detailing every item in the box. In the past they’ve included coupon codes for some of the brands, but not this month.
Swissco Glitter Toe Separators – Value $2
Model Co Cheek and Lip Tint – .16 oz Value $11
These glitter toe separators are fun! I was worried some stray glitter would get in my pedicure, but I just tried to brush some off with my hand and it passed the test!
La Fresh Travel Lite Facial Cleansing Wipes – 8 count Value $2.49
Nubar Alter Ego Nail Lacquer in Blondie – .25 oz Value $4
Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion – 1 oz Value $1
I love LA Fresh (their eco-beauty line is my favorite), and these facial cleansing cloths will definitely be perfect to pack for traveling. I also love this mini Nubar polish. It’s 3-free and will make for a great glitter top coat. I’m not too excited about the Aveeno lotion, but I’m sure it will get used!
Verdict: I paid $10 for the October Beauty Box 5 and received over $20 worth of items – not bad at all! I think I’ll use everything in the box, so while it wasn’t my favorite box ever, it’s definitely a good value for me. I hope in the upcoming months Beauty Box 5 switches up the brands in their boxes – I feel like I’ve seen some of these brands in past Beauty Box 5 boxes.
