Beauty Box 5 Review - September 2013

Beauty Box 5 is a monthly beauty sample subscription service. It’s also I believe the cheapest beauty subscription available if you sign up for the annual subscription – only $8.25 a box!

Beauty Box 5 Review - September 2013

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.

Each box comes with a card detailing every item in the box. (They also usually include coupons codes for some of the brands included that month).

Beauty Box 5 Review - September 2013

Bella Pieree Cosmetics Shimmer Powder in Celebration – FULL SIZE! Value $15

I think this is my favorite item in the box. I love natural mineral makeup, and this bronze sparkle powder will make for a dramatic eye shadow! (This powder works for other applications than eye shadow – Bella Cosmetics recommends using it as bronzer, blush, and even to tint your mascara!)

Fine FeatherHeads Fly Ties – Value $7.95

Body Drench Lip Drench Lip Balm in Eucalyptus – Value $4.95

When I went to the Fine Featherheads website to check out the hairbands, I noticed they also sell hair feathers…for dogs!

Beauty Box 5 Review - September 2013

Skinn Shop Skin Smoothing & Soothing Eye Cream – 3 ml Value $10

Every Beauty Makeup Remove Pads – Sample Pack – Value $1.50

Verdict: I paid $10 for this box (I signed up for the 3-month subscription plan for $30), and received nearly $40 worth of product. I’m very happy with this box and I’ll use everything with the exception of the eye cream just because I have so many eye cream samples I want to try already! What did you think of the September Beauty Box 5?

  1. I just signed up for this box. I love the price!

  2. I received the same box, but with grapefruit lip drench, which it has a very nice scent. I love the hair ties, the shades of blue are gorgeous and I’m already wearing them. The makeup remover wipes need to be dampened with water to activate. One wipe took off all my makeup with the exception of my waterproof eyeliner and mascara; had to use another product for that. The Celebration shimmer powder really does make gorgeous eyeshadow. I was delighted with this box ~ I think that Beautybox5 boxes are getting better and better, and a years subscription wont break the bank! I like that they’re now shipping by the 8th of each month, too.

  3. What a great box! That shimmer powder is super pretty.
