It's been a while since I reviewed Wantable. I subscribed to Wantable Intimates for about 6 months, and If you recall my past reviews, the last couple months of my subscription were pretty disappointing. I was getting an awful lot of socks, boy shorts, and tank tops. After tweeking my profile and prefernces a few times, I finally gave up and cancelled my subscription in April. 

Wantable recently offered its affiliates the opportunity to receive a complimentary review box. It's been a few months since I've tried the service and I wanted to see if anything has changed…

Beauty Box 5 Review - June 2014 - Beauty Subscription Box

This post contains affiliate links.

What is it?Beauty Box 5
How Much? $12/month, $30/quarter, $99/year  plus $3 shipping per box
What's in it? 5 samples from your favourite beauty brands 

Beauty Box 5 shipped around the 8th and arrived on the 17th this month. Their shipping has really improved from the old 3 week turnaround.

The theme for June is "Summer Chic". The summer mantra is "less effort, more cool" and in June BB5 is recommending we focus on iconic and easy hot weather basics like sunscreen and mascara. 

The box also included several little promo cards to give out to friends. New subscribers can get a free introductory box, or save $12 on a term subscription when they use promo code FREE614. Unfortunately the promo is valid for first-time US customers only. No love for the Canadians.
