I've tried a variety of beauty subscription services to not only enhance my beauty collection, but so I'd have a package to look forward to every month. I liked Birchbox, but didn't love it. I loved Glossybox but couldn't warrant spending $22 each month and my first and original Pretty Pink Box I loved but is now defunct.
When I started watching PinkSoFoxy on Youtube she mentioned that she got a lot of her oils and clays to make skin care products from Vitacost.com. I did some browsing around the site, made a LONG wish list of products and then came across their version of monthly subscription services, the BE series.
-Be Well Box- Personal care and wellness items
-Be Fit Box- Diet and Fitness Products
-Be Pretty Box- Pamper me please products and the newest discoveries in antiaging science
-Be Strong Box- Strength and development products
-Be All Box- Vitamins, supplements, healthy food and personal care products
They are all $13.99 a month and that includes shipping.
I purchased a single month of both the Be Pretty Box and the Be Well Box. I don't plan on getting a monthly subscription to both, but I wanted to see which one I'd like better.
This is the review of April's Be Pretty Box!!

The retail value of this box is around $36! All of that for only $14! This makes me even happier because these are all products that I'm actually interested in trying and all products that I can actually apply to my current skin care routine or actually use.
This is definitely going to be my new monthly subscription service of choice. I think it's a great way to try a variety of natural brands and natural products and while this box was mainly skin care, it usually contains a nice balance of skin care and cosmetics.
Have you ever tried the Be Pretty Box before? I'd love to know what you got!
