A whole load of beauty box brands — companies that ship samples of quality products every month — are gathering steam out there! Some allow you to customize your box while others ship a box full of surprises on the first of each month. It’s a subscription to beauty, whether the theme is eco-friendly, budget beauty or the best of the best — and we love it.
What’s in your box?
Beware, sample-sized, full-sized or eco-friendly, these box services sell out super quickly, so treat them like flash sale sites. Check the sites as often as necessary to get your name on the lists. Don’t be tardy to the sample-sized party!
Do you care about the environment almost as much as you care about being pretty? This beauty box site hosts eco-friendly products ranging from makeup to goodies for animals and organic food.
The Sample Lounge ($15/month)
Get ready to make room in your beauty drawer. You’ll receive seven healthy beauty and skin care products each month, plus promotions from its participating brands.
Spirit Beauty Lounge
Choose your samples for $25/month or choose from a selection of pre-assembled packages for your particular skin type for $15/month. As an added bonus, everything is organic.
Conscious Box ($19/month)
One of the most expensive services, but it is chock-full of goodies with a heavy emphasis on snack items. It’s worth the splurge!
A great bet: This box comes packed with samples of the kind of high end stuff you want but aren’t sure you are ready to splurge on.
Widely reviewed as the best in the business, Birchbox takes the cake in deluxe sample availability.
Loose Button ($12/month)
They offer the most deluxe-sized samples, which makes them the best bang for your buck.
Pink Moment ($12/month)
Another eco-friendly company that offers some of the best beauty products out there.
Beauty Army ($12/month)
They are the only company that allows you to choose from a selection of samples so you know what you’re getting in each box. We love control!
