Here we are, just in time for Mother’s Day! In this article, I want to focus on one of the most popular monthly subscription box categories out there…BEAUTY. Women love products that they can use to beautify and pamper themselves with; we can never have enough. Sometimes scrolling the aisles of your local beauty/cosmetic store can be a daunting task and you never can really be sure if you are buying a quality product. Not to mention, these beauty boxes are valued way over what you will be paying and they take the guesswork out of it by having experts select the items for you. All you have to do is get excited to receive a box of new products every month! I have consolidated a list of my top choices along with some hidden gems waiting to be discovered. So without further ado, let’s get right into it.
Allure Beauty Box
Allure Beauty Box is an awesome deal for the price. Each box will contain a variety of at least 5 full or deluxe-sized products (a mix of luxury and indie brands) valued anywhere from $50-$90. Allure experts test more than 50,000 products each year and only the ones that meet and exceed their expectations will make it inside your box. Also, featured in each box is a mini-mag that includes details about the products you received as well as tips, shortcuts, and step-by-step guides for using your products. Plus, on occassion, they may throw in one or two bonus gifts from a mass brand for FREE.
In situations where you may receive a product that needs to be tailored to your skin tone, Allure Beauty Box will give you the opportunity to select your skin tone/shade either via email or during the time of purchase. Allure Beauty Box is perfect for those who like to try new products on a regular basis. For the Allure Beauty Box subscribers, you will never receive the same product twice so you can be sure your box will always surprise you with new and exciting products.
