My Thoughts:

With the Beauty Box 5 subscription you definitely get more than what you pay for.  The value of the items I received was close to $40, plus, there’s free shipping. The value of this Beauty Box 5 subscription is great, especially for the items you receive for just $12! I love the idea of beauty box subscriptions since they allow you to experience brands and products you wouldn’t normally venture to try on your own.

I wish you were able to give details about your likes and dislikes so that the items you receive are catered more towards your needs, skin type, hair type etc.  However, for the price, how can I even complain?

Would I recommend Beauty Box 5?

I’d recommend the Beauty Box 5 Subscription beauty box service since it’s affordable and allows you to try different luxury brands, and indie brands.  It’s a great subscription box service, I think for teenageers who are just getting into beauty and cosmetics.  Really, if you’re a cosmetic newbie or a beauty guru, and like to splurge on high-end items or be a savvy spender,  the Beauty Box 5 subscription service has something to offer you.
