Subscription Boxes are the thing of the future. And who doesn’t love getting a little something in the mail for themselves! I found some of the top Beauty Subscription Boxes I think you will love!
First one of course, has to be FabFitFun box. FabFitFun is a quarterly subscription from FabFitFun.com. Each season they send you a box of $200+ worth items in categories like beauty, fashion, and fitness. For $49 a month this is a great deal for what is delivered. As a Canadian, my boxes took a very long time to reach me after I got the shipping information. Which is not a big deal but just so you are prepared. And with the Canadian conversion it does get quite pricey. Some months I didn’t feel what I was paying was worth it, other months they sent some really great products and it was definitely worth it! If you are wanting to sign up for more than one box I would suggest signing up for the annual rate and becoming a Select Member. This will give you access to choose some of your products before the box is sent out!
Birchbox is one of the original beauty box subscriptions. It costs $10 a month or you can sign up for an annual subscription and get one month free. Boxes typically include a variety of samples, deluxe size samples, and the occasional full size product. Birchbox is for people who would like to try out high-end products before purchasing the full sizes. The samples should be big enough for you to see if the product works for you. There is also an option for men! Every month, Birchbox lets subscribers pick between a curated box (all samples revealed) or a single sample choice and be surprised by the rest of the items. This box only ships to United States, Guam, Puerto Rico, U.S Virgin Islands, and Northern Mariana Islands.
Ipsy like Birchbox is $10 a month, and sends you 5 beauty or makeup samples PLUS a makeup bag! This box is a great value and an awesome way to build up your makeup collection for cheap! Ipsy sends out many variations every month, so if you and your friend both sign up you may get completely different samples. U.S citizens also have access to Ipsy offers, where you can add-on full size products to your bag every month.
BoxyCharm is a monthly subscription with 4-5 full-sized and luxury sized beauty products for $21! This box is great for the makeup addict in all of us. This Box does ship to both U.S and Canada. This is a great box to expand your makeup collection and try some brands you normally wouldn’t purchase on your own.
BeautyFix is another monthly subscription box for $24.95. A little bit higher in price than some of the other boxes, however this box has some great value. BeautyFix features a curated collection of innovative and professional makeup, skin and hair care products handpicked by beauty experts, though leans more towards hair and skin care products.. This box again only ships to U.S.
Look Fantastic Beauty Box is a beauty subscription box from the UK that includes at least 6 handpicked items along with an issue of Elle UK magazine. Products generally curated around a theme. This includes skin care, hair care, cosmetics, and body products. This box ships to U.S, UK, Canada, and Australia. One of the cons of this subscription is, if you sign up for 6 months and want to cancel within that time you have to finish out the 6 months. They only charge you every month but you are committed for those 6 months. I have also read reviews that some products end up being damaged by the time they reach the customer, or it takes a really long time to receive after it has been shipped. This is pretty normal for a box coming from overseas. Plus you get some products you wouldn’t normally find here in US or Canada.
Julep beauty box is a monthly subscription box for $24.99 (US dollars) or sign up for 3 months and save 20%, receiving each box for $19.99 per month. Each month on the 20th, subscribers get to pick out the items in their boxes from the new nail polish and beauty product collections. Everything is full size, and you can get 2 nail polishes plus a full-size beauty product of your choice each month for the cost. You can also opt for all nail polish, or all beauty products, they give you all the customization options. You decide which items you want, you can upgrade and get the whole collection, or skip that month completely. This is a great option if you want full control over your box!
Each month Allure sends out a mix of deluxe or full-sized samples from mostly high-end brands, and a mini magazine with tips, shortcuts and step-by-steps. This box only ships to US but does have free shipping. Allure has some very loyal subscribers as they normally do carry some great products!
Need to build up you brush collection? Morpheme by Liveglam has a monthly subscription that send you a guaranteed value of at least $30 each box for $19.99 (US), free shipping in US or $4.99 worldwide. A couple nice features of MorpheMe, you can skip a month under the membership settings in your account page. Your membership with automatically resume the next month. Also MorpheMe is offering a new feature that will allow subscribers to trade in your brushes for a different set!
The Vegan Cuts Beauty Box delivers cruelty-free beauty products once a month for $22.95. Each box includes 4-7 products that are mostly natural and organic and free of parabens. These finds are mostly full or deluxe size samples. And Vegan Cuts promises a value of about $40-$60 in each box. Free shipping in the US. $9 to Canada. $15 to the rest of the world. This is a great box for anyone who likes to keep their beauty routine simple, but wants to stay conscious of any animal by products or testing!
