Nowadays, there seems to be a new beauty product sampling program popping up. If you're not familiar with beauty product sampling programs, they're basically monthly services that contain makeup, skincare, or hair care sample sized products to try out. Most companies have you fill out a profile form when you sign up so they can send products catering to your skin type, hair type, etc. Some programs even have full size products in their boxes sometimes. Companies such as Birchbox and Glossybox are a couple of popular programs just to name a few.
I was recently contacted by new-to-me company, Beauty Box 5, to review one of their boxes. For $12 per month ($30 quarterly; $100 yearly) you get 4-5 product samples, and if you refer five friends to sign up for BB5, you get one month free. Product brands include Freeman, Becca, and Weleda, just to name a few. Here's what I received in my box.

Overall, I'm pleased with the items I received in this box (I'm seriously considering buying the Comodynes Easy Peeling towelettes). But, just like any other beauty product sampling program, you'll never know what you'll get in your box each month, and you may or may not like everything. That may be something to consider before joining a beauty subscription program if that's a concern for you. For more info about Beauty Box Five, click here.
