Beauty Box 5

You all know I love a monthly subscription box, especially a beauty one, so when I got the opportunity to try out Beauty Box 5, I couldn't wait. I hope you enjoy my review:



What is Beauty Box 5?

Beauty Box 5 is a subscription-based, beauty sampling program that delivers a box filled with 5 cosmetic samples to your door every month. 

How it works:
Select the subscription plan that works best for you. Every month you'll get a mixture of carefully selected travel, deluxe and full-size samples. BB5 ships to the lower 48 United States and Canada and has free shipping. Plans and prices:
  • $12 monthly
  • $30 quarterly
  • $99 yearly

What you'll get:
Every month you will get a box filled with cosmetic products selected by our beauty editor. You can expect your Beauty Box to be shipped by the 8th of each month. You'll receive a mixture of luxury, commonly known brands, niche brands, eco-conscious and even vegan brands. Your beauty box will include a selection of makeup, hair care, skin care, nail care, fragrances and beauty accessories.

  • Bonus gift card to soap.com if you sign up by the end of the month!
In my box:
  • Coolway shampoo and conditioner
    • I've reviewed this brand before, and loved the samples.
  • Jean Pierre Oil-Absorbing Facial Tissues
    • Not an oily-skin kinda gal, so I'll be passing these along.
  • Be a Bombshell lip gloss
    • I'm already a user and fan of this brand, and I loved the shade.
  • Model Co Eyeliner
    • I love how this came with a sharpener in the cap! Very smooth liner.


My Review:

I noticed there is no profile to fill out, which is fine by me. For this box, I was already familiar with/had used the products before. But I figure this is because I'm a beauty blogger, and trying products/being familiar with beauty brands is part of the job. Also, a quick glance at the Brands page showed many I'd not tried before. I looked at past boxes they've sent out, and I loved the contents of those. 

Minus the facial tissues (I have dry skin) I was very pleased with the contents of the box. This would make an awesome gift for you or someone on your list. If you are interested in beauty, you'll love this box, even if you're new to beauty! Visit beautybox5.com to order your box today!

  13. I've always wanted to get a beauty box subscription but I don't think they ship all the way to where I am. I can only drool at all the stuff they send you. =)

  18. I'd love to receive such box and am too in love with testing beauty products.
    At the moment a nice hair conditioner/henna is given a go over here as well as testing new range of cosmeceuticals to give my face a proper glow. Girl's little treats. xx

  19. This is a nice review. There seem to be so many companies promoting this type of sample subscription service. It's good to find a reliable one. The eye liner and lip balm actually look full size.

  20. You got a completely different box than another girl did so I wonder how they select which items to send out if there's no profile/quiz. Yeah, after you've been blogging for awhile you're bound to repeat products or feel like you've tried everything in the world lol
