I love trying new beauty products, but most of them end up in the cosmetic graveyard in my bathroom closet. I want something that fits in with the other products I use, doesn't irritate my skin, and doesn't contain any nasty chemicals. See how easy to please I am? You don't even want to see how many containers of makeup, skincare, and other beauty products are in there. (Note to self: THROW AWAY anything that makes your skin turn beet red immediately. You will forget and use it again in six months.)
I recently discovered a real solution to my problem. Beauty subscription boxes! Every company is different, but the general idea is this: Pay a monthly fee and receive a box every month with a bunch of different beauty products. The size, quality, and brands differ but that's part of the fun!
Beauty Box 5 is designed to give you the opportunity to try new products before you spend your hard earned money on the full size product. Although I enjoy my BB5, I have to admit not all of the samples are large enough to me to know if I want to try the product. I've had some one use samples for bath products and unless I really liked the scent, I'm probably not going to order the full-size product. For the consumer, its great. I get to try all these new products and always have something fun on hand, without a billion beauty containers sitting around. For the small business providing samples, its probably not the best marketing strategy to provide samples that won't last for at least a few uses. I've already ordered a few products based off the last three BB5 I've received and all were from larger sized samples.
Beauty Box 5 runs $12 a month, but your best bet is to order it for the whole year. You can get 12 months for $100, saving you $44!
I was provided with one Beauty Box 5 free of charge in exchange for my honest review. All opinions and thoughts are my own.
