Beauty Box 5 Review – December 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)
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.
Nanacoco Nail Polish in Beat Box – Value $3.95
I received these nail polish remover pads in a POPSUGAR box many months ago and I like that they are acetone free and the little case is pretty convenient too.
FYI – Beauty Box 5 tends to send a lot of nail polish. (This is the second Nanacoco polish I’ve received in the past 3 months). Something to keep in mind if you are thinking about subscribing!
Lucky Brand Lucky Number 6 Perfume – Sample
This scent isn’t for me, and I just don’t like getting perfume samples in general.
Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Moisturizer – .26 oz Value $10
Jaqua Raspberry Buttercream Frosting Hand Creme – 2 oz (Travel Size) Value $12.50
This Juice Beauty moisturizer is another item I first tried thanks to POPSUGAR! I really like it, so I’m happy to have a travel sized version. (It’s foil-sealed and expires in 2016, so that’s great too).
The hand creme is a little too sweetly scented for me. Judging from the card it seems like subscribers will get one of a variety of Jaqua products.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $30. That’s pretty good considering I paid the $8.25 cost for the annual subscription. I wasn’t too excited about this box though. (I haven’t been too excited about Beauty Box 5 for the past few months it seems). Fortunately for me the Juice Beauty Moisturizer alone made this box worth the cost to me.
