There is such an abundance of beauty products available, with more being developed every day, that it may seem impossible to find them all, try them all and buy the ones you like. Luckily, there is an easy solution offered by subscription services that literally present “beauty in a box.” A beauty box is a handpicked collection of popular beauty products delivered to your doorstep. These are both economical, practical and super fun!
The following is selected information about a few of the many beauty boxes available, which you might consider when looking for one that best suits your individual needs. Discover the newest, emerging products and try out some oldies but goodies without ever leaving home.
The lookfantastic box includes six iconic and cult beauty favorites, along with the latest issue of ELLE magazine and Beauty Box ‘Edit’ – exclusive to subscribers, filled with tips, tricks and the latest in beauty trends. Six and twelve-month subscription options are available.
Made for women to test their preferred products before the bigger buy, each box features five trial-sized products tailored to your interests, including samples for makeup, hair, skincare and fragrance.
