Every beauty maven in the 21st century has had some sort of run-in with a “beauty box”. Whether you’re a monthly subscriber or have contemplated becoming one in order to amuse your beauty obsession, we totally get it.We were lucky enough to personalize our own Birchbox at their “Birchbox In My City” event, and let us tell you, the product choices were amazing! Not only did we rave about the product choices, but did we mention Birchbox knows how to throw the greatest events ever? From gourmet, miniature brunch choices and complimentary manicures, to free astrology readings and endless refreshing drinks, we have to admit that we were more than impressed!
Besides Birchbox being our number one beauty box choice at the moment, we’ve listed off a few other indulge-worthy boxes.
Ipsy, $10/month – Ipsy is a personalized monthly “Glam Bag” with four to five product samples and full sized beauty products. the products are based off of your results of your “Beauty Quiz” and product brands range from NYX and GlamGlow, to Urban Decay and OPI, and satisfy all of your hair, skin, and nail needs.
Julep Maven, $20-$40/month– Julep, which has a variety of price options, but is a bit on the expensive side, prides itself in its “box flexibility”. Throughout your subscription, you can customize each box, send your box to a friend and even skip a month. With their customizable boxes, you can choose from boxes that are already created, swap out products from boxes, and even change colors of the products you’re receiving.
GlossyBox, $21/month – GlossyBox provides its subscribers with niche, high-end and emerging beauty brands from around the world. Their adorable pink boxes come with tip and trick cards to allow you to better use the products they’re sending you. All you have to do is create a “Beauty Profile”, which can be adjusted as your personal style changes, and products are sent accordingly each month.
Beauty Box 5, $12/month – This box is all in the name. Each month you will receive a variety of five makeup accessories, beauty, hair, skincare, fragrance, nail and body products chosen by Beauty Box 5. Their products also include a variety of drugstore, niche, luxury, Eco-friendly and vegan products. At only $12 a month, you can’t beat that price to variety ratio.
Target Beauty Box, $7/per box – Of course Target has a beauty box! Although they aren’t currently giving these boxes out subscription style, you are able to purchase the boxes online and shipping is free! Most boxes value up to $30 and are limited in monthly quantities, so be on the lookout for September’s!
New Beauty Test Tube, $29.95/month – New Beauty will be sending you a tube rather than a box, but that’s okay with us because these tubes have just about everything. These tubes, send six times a year, are on the more expensive side, but they come fully equipped with the New Beauty Magazine, deluxe and full-sized products, and special offers and promotions.
