Beauty Box 5 Review & Coupon Code – October 2014
Beauty Box 5 is a monthly beauty and makeup subscription box. It’s also one of the cheapest beauty subscription boxes – only $8.25 a month with an annual subscription. They tend to feature more drugstore brands, and usually the product sizes are deluxe or full size. (Sometimes they still send out the dreaded foil packets though).
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription 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)
COUPON: Use coupon code FREEBOX1 to get the previous month’s box free when you sign up for a subscription.
The Products: 4-5 full size and sample size beauty products.
Ships to: US and Canada
Each Beauty Box 5 box comes with an informational card detailing each item in your box for that month.
ChapStick Hydration Lock – FULL SIZE! Value $3
Bellapierre Cosmetics Cheek and Lip Stain in Pink – .176 oz Value $10
I’m so used to getting BellaPierre mineral eyeshadows or bronzers, so it was a nice surprise to open this up and find a solid cheek stain! The color is a little too bold for me for a lip stain, but it blends to a very natural blush as a cheek stain. And since the formula is a solid balm and not a liquid stain, you have a little more time to blend it in and get the color you want. (Stains can sometimes dry way too quickly for my taste!)
And I’m good with lip balm for a while, but this ChapStick will make a great stocking stuffer~
Nanacoco Nail Polish in Surfer’s Dream – Full Size! Value $4
Lashem Picture Perfect Instant Wrinkle Reducer – .17 oz Value $13.60
This part of the box looks so much like my Beauty Box 5 from last month. (I got a different nail polish and a different Lashem product). I would like to see a little more variety!
Extend Your Beauty Cosmetic Tool – Value $5.49
I went to their site to link to this product, and it’s definitely not up and running yet! I remember seeing a similar tool on Shark Tank and I thought it was a good idea then. I know I’ll use this for getting the last drop out of some of my beauty product favorites!
Verdict: I paid about $8 for this box (annual subscription with coupon) and I received about $36 worth of products. I think this is an improvement over last month’s box in terms of both items and value. And I’m happy to see that everything is a good size this month too.
