If you are new to this concept, there are numerous companies that offer subscription Beauty Boxes for a monthly fee. These beauty boxes contain 5-6 random beauty products that the company chose for that month and they might be anything from hair products to makeup to skincare to brushes and even brush cleaning tools. Basically anything beauty related and is delivered monthly to your door!
I love these boxes because you get:
(a) A surprise every month.
(b) Which means you also experiment and find new good and bad products.
(c) Value for money. This is independent on the beauty box subscription fee (some are cheaper than others) you always end up with higher value items than what you payed even if the items are travel to sample size.
(d) A nice way to keep up to date with a variety of beauty products and beauty companies.
(e) A lovely monthly treat because, as L’oreal says, “You’re worth it!”
I live in the UK so I subscribe to the UK Birchbox, GlossyBox, Look Fantastic Box and Cohorted. If you are interested in seeing what was inside each month and what I thought of the products after a week of testing then follow this blog! I upload one box review per week (which includes reviews for each product), even though I receive them all in the first week of each month, because I actually do just open one box per week as I want to give each bunch or products a week minimum of testing before I give you my opinion. Yes the self control is real!
A lot of people ask me which box I would recommend for them so I made up a quick little tree guide. Bear in mind that obviously this is a quick test-result. Have a read at my general reviews on Birchbox, GlossyBox, Look Fantastic Box and Cohorted before deciding and maybe checkout the last 1-2 month specific reviews.
