Beauty Box 5 Limited Edition Box

Beauty Box 5 has just released their first Limited Edition Box! For $35 you get over $100 worth of products that were featured in past boxes.

This is the first Limited Edition box that I know of from Beauty Box 5, so I don’t know how long it will last before it sells out. I recommend grabbing one soon if you’re interested!

  1. I just got my limited edition box today. The price was fantastic. I had a coupon code and got it for around $31. Out of the box full of products I’m only going to use 5 items – The value of those 5 items I’ll use is around $15 at the most. Yet most the goodies: are up for swap ( I just don’t wear a lot of makeup ). I’m not sure if I got $100 in products, yet I know I got at least $85. Based on this limited edition box I will buy another beautybox5 limited edition when they have their next one.

    • I liked the last one. I have used or will use most of the stuff in it. I didn’t get this one (was a bit afraid of repeats — that Secret Clinical Strength deodorant gave me a horrible rash). At least you can kind of guess the contents based on the BB5 reviews because they seem to re-send a lot of older stuff. (I really like the hanger for makeup brushes to dry that I got in my LE box.)

  2. Just got an email from them: Code: MSW20 – FREE SHIPPING in the U.S. and get 20% off anything in our shop.

  3. I agree with the others – this box was REALLY bad. no packaging, no invoice, no card – I had no idea where it was from until I got my credit card bill and remembered buying it. It was literally loose junk thrown in a box. Although there were some nice thing, most were cheapie samples and it doesn’t appear to be worth the cost of the box, much less the $100. I mean, one of them was a Secret deodorant. How is THAT fun? Why don’t they just throw in a bar of drugstore soap and call it a day. I’ll never order from them again.

  4. I just received my Limited Edition Beauty Box 5 and I am appalled. I can’t believe I paid over $40 (with shipping) for THIS. I wish I could post a picture. It is literally a square mailing box with items loose inside–no packaging, no name on the box, nothing. I had no idea who it was from and had to go back through my emails to figure it out. This isn’t worth $100, it isn’t with $40. It’s a joke. They will be hearing from me and I had better get my money back on this one!

    • So sorry to hear it – let us know how customer care responds.

      • I just received an email from Customer Service. I don’t feel like this compromise is fair. I think I’ll just return the whole thing for a refund. There’s no way the value is $100. I’m curious what anyone else who got this thinks? Here’s what she said:

        “I am sorry for any dissatisfaction but I assure you the total of all the items that were sent to you were valued at $100. I talked to my manager. Would you be willing to keep the box, that way you do not have to go through the trouble of returning it, if we offer to refund you $15 for this purchase?”

        • You’re lucky that you got that reply. I was told the same thing that it was worth $100 and basically tough luck. Very disappointed with this company!!

        • I was nervous after reading the bad reviews, but I received mine today, and I’m pretty happy with it. I feel like I got a good amount of stuff. Most is stuff I’d received previously, but I liked, with the exception of some body bronzer. I do agree with the lack of presentation though. It is obvious this a box of leftovers, and not a “Limited Edition” box.

  5. OMG I got mine today, sooooo upset I emailed Beauty Box 5! This was supposed to be worth $100?!? I got a full sized eyeshadow, mini lipgloss, mini mascara, mini cuticle oil, deodorant and a foot scrub thing and the rest were foil samples! I could have gone to Ulta and got them all for free! On top of that it was in a cardboard box, nothing cute, nothing letting me know who it was from, no padding inside, nothing. Limited edition means its supposed to be exciting and special, not this box. I hope they resolve this. Wow, just wow!

  6. Just received mine today and I must say how disappointed I am. It came in a plain cardboard cube so I had no idea what it was until I opened it and even then I completely guessed since there was no information card about who it came from. Really just a bunch of samples thrown in a box. So disappointed 🙁

  7. Bought mine! Anyone have any clue when they will be shipped?

    • Next week. (I e-mailed them to ask since there’s no way to log into an account and check on things.)

      • Awesome, thanks!!!!

    • Just got shipping notification today, actually! That was fast. I’m excited!

  8. I can’t believe I have just heard about this, and it was already sold out this morning! I am on the lookout for the promo code for the annual subscription. The other one I saw expired Feb 7th. I hope they run their special pricing again but not sure how often they offer this. I’m waiting to sign up until I can get a price break.

  9. Sold Out! I just got the email from subscription addiction and it is gone! That was fast.

  10. I went for it. $40 (including shipping) is pretty good, even if it’s 15+ drugstore brands and even if there are a handful of items I won’t use. I use plenty of drugstore brand stuff.

    Although this site is a bad influence on me: I also just got the Red Carpet Total Beauty Collection and three pairs of JustFab sandals. (Yay for tax refunds.)

  11. I decided to sleep on it and they are sold out this morning 🙁

    • It’s still allowing me to add it to my cart

      • Yeah, I ordered this morning after I got to work. The temporary authorization is already showing on my credit card.

  12. Does anyone know if they except PayPal?

    • Nevermind, it appears they do *not* accept PayPal. Bummer.

  13. There is a $5 shipping charge. So the total ends up being $40. Still a good price for $100 worth of products.

  14. Thanks for the info. this will be a good way to try this box and all the goodies they offer

  15. You know I just ordered this one!!! BB5 is one of my favorite subs, especially for the price! I’m always impressed with their items and the value!
