Did anyone just not get some of their free samples? I was suppose to get 5. I only got 3 & 1 wasn’t even something I ordered! Very disappointed in this! I never had problems with them before. I understand it’s free, but that was part of the reason I ordered it because of all the extras since I have to pay shipping.


I was supposed to get 5 and only got 4. My confirmation email showed all 5 items but they only shipped the 4 and now have not responded to my email. Not very good customer service.

I finally got a response from them yesterday that they had ran out of the sample I wanted & would send me two additional ones soon. But im guessing soon with them will be another week from now before it gets sent.

Becca Mari

I received my order today. I purchased it on October 28 and received a shipping confirmation on November 2. The only thing i wasn’t happy about was that hey must have run out of the h2o moisturizer and sent another Marsk eyeshadow. I already have 4 of them all in the same color. They should have contacted me and let me pick another sample. I would have gotten another chapstick. But i can’t really complain because i got a hemp lip balm for $1.50 and then picked a free full size chapstick, 3 of the $10 blending brushes and a $24 Marsk eyeshadow all for $6.50!


I got 4 of the blending brushes, I was supposed to get 4 surprise items, not 4 of the same exact thing! I was thinking of getting this sub, but after the box I got, I will not get this sub. 🙁
I didn’t like anything in the box.

I placed my order on 10/28 and STILL have received no shipping info. I’ve emailed CS twice and it took days for them to respond. I finally got a response yesterday morning saying that my package was scheduled to ship out yesterday but guess what?! No shipment!
It has been TWELVE days, y’all! Not 3-5, like they claim. TWELVE. And that’s assuming it ships today.
Considering how difficult it has been to contact them and get a response, I’m officially putting BB5 on my Never Again List.
So frustrating.


I haven’t received any reply from them either and I emailed them twice. I am glad some folks have received their products so there is still hope however a reply from them would be nice even if it’s to say the shipment is delayed.

I also ordered back on 10/28 and contacted them last week to check on status. They replied almost 2 days later saying that they had been overwhelmed with recent orders and that instead of the normal 3-5 days to ship it was going to be longer, like the following week (as in this week). Today I just received my shipping notice, so hopefully others are getting their notices today also! I was a little bummed to see that I was getting 3 of the same brush for my “mystery item”. I thought they would give something different…ah well, hopefully I really like the brushes!

Becca Mari

I’m surprised you have been having issues with them. I got my confirmation email on November 2 and received my order today. They usually have great CS. I’m sorry you have had such a bad experience.


I got the same reply. I did not receive a confirmation email yesterday either. I was seriously thinking of subbing with them too. But after this…no!

Amy English

Liz, have you received shipping confirmation? It says 3-5 days but they still haven’t shipped.


We want to thank you for placing your order with the Beauty Box 5 Shop and confirm your recent purchase (Order #)!

Orders placed in the BB5 Shop are processed within 3-5 business days, and you will receive a confirmation email with tracking once your order has shipped. Orders in the US will arrive within 8 business days and orders in Canada normally arrive within 2-3 weeks. Shipments to Canada cannot be tracked.

This order is separate from our recurring subscriptions so if you are a subscriber you will not see this on your account. If you have questions or just want to say hello, send an email our way at [email protected]!

This is the response I got. I placed my order on the 28th. It’s like the just copied and pasted the confirmation email. But the email is titled Request received :re beauty box five purchase which is the email I sent asking g what was going on


I haven’t received a shipping email yet, I emailed them last night so I guess I’ll see what they say.


FYI, I emailed BB5 about the spooky surprise and they emailed me back saying the spooky surprises 1 and 2 are both brushes. I ordered two of each so they will send me two different samples instead of getting duplicate brushes.


I just ordered two of the $8 boxes and picked my 5 free gifts. Picked the brush, chapstick, 2 nail polishes and the h2o moisturizer (said out if stock but will send another sample). I can’t wait to get my box. One will be a gift.


Is this just a one time buy or will they charge my card every month?


I got 2 of the 5$ boxes and 1 of the 8$ boxes, 2 surprises, 1 of ea balm and the moisturizer. Figure the 2 5$ boxes as gifts adding a surprise ea and 1 balm each and keeping the 8$ with the moisturizer. Not bad for 23$ shipped!!


I’m pretty sure the spooky surprise is indeed the brush


When I go to choose my 5 free samples, it list a “full size spooky surprise: blending brush” is this the same option you chose?
Or was there a different spooky surprise option that is no longer available? I don’t need several blending brushes so I’m thinking of choosing 1 or 2 brushes and other items


I saw the same thing. I only selected one of those. I was hoping for a surprise too, not blending brushes.


I just did the offer. Now after reading all of the comments I’m wondering if it’s the same item… Can this be clarified or not?

karen ng

Do the sample selection come up automatically after adding to cart ? I added the $5 box to my cart but no sample choices come up 🙁

Liz Cadman

Yes, for me the samples appeared in a slider above the items in my cart. Hope that helps!

karen ng

I think I don’t see the samples b/c I”m from Canada 🙁 It seems to recognize the IP.

Becca Mari

If you don’t want to buy any of the boxes you can buy one of the sale items and still get the five free samples. I bought an item for $1.50 and the added the chapstick, mosturizer and 3 spooky surprise items and my total was $6.50 with the $5.00 shipping charge. I didn’t want to get the mystery box because I think it still might be the same as the first one I bought and I already got all the other boxes.


I got the same as you Liz, except I picked out pinks/purple nail polishes for my daughter. Great deal, can’t wait to see what I get.

Liz Cadman

Yay! It seriously is such a good deal! 🙂


I think this is a great way to try a sub out without getting locked in! I got a $10 mystery beauty box and 5 surprise samples, can’t wait!


Do you think all of the full size surprises will be the eyeshadow brush?

Becca Mari

No I think its something different but it might be all the same item. I got 3 of the $10 value spooky surprises. I hope they will be different but if not I can gift them.
