My brother received a subscription box for his birthday from loot crate and to be honest I was a bit jealous. I wanted a subscription box but something that is more my style. Hmmm, maybe make-up? Delivered to my door every month?
There are a number of make-up and skincare subscription services available but not all of them deliver to Canada and many of them are very expensive ($20 – $30 a month). That’s when I found Beauty Box 5. It is affordable at $12 a month (as in I could maybe convince my mom to get it for me) and it covered more beauty products than skincare. I don’t need a lot of anti-aging products right now.
When I got home and my first box arrived I was so exited! It included an eye shadow from Be a Bombshell Cosmetics, a sparkly nail filer, a great colour of nail polish from Nubar, and some skincare products, which I probably would not use. I was so exited and the amount of skincare items was not a lot so I did not really care. I especially loved the nail polish from Nubar (part of my New Year Party Ware post) because it is a natural polish.
When I was reading about the products I was shocked to see that I was getting more for value than what I paid for that month. The eye shadow alone was $24. Over all I would definitely subscribe to beauty box. You can even gift a subscription of various months to someone too (hint, hint, mom). You get to try new samples or popular and new brands. And who doesn’t like to get mail?
There are some other subscription services that are available in Canada and, the USA. I have not tried any of them but hopefully one day. Here they are:
Bye for now,
Thanks to the folks at Beauty Box 5 for sending my one month’s box for this review. The opinions are my own.
