With new products cropping up 24/7 and others going viral overnight, figuring out what beauty products to use can feel overwhelming. That’s exactly why beauty and makeup subscription boxes might be your best bet for discovering buzzy new favorites.
Subscription boxes are a charming way to treat yourself each month because there’s always an element of surprise, unlike your standard Amazon order of paper towels and dog food. They also make delightful gifts, especially if you’re crunched for time or simply don’t know what to buy someone.
These beauty and makeup subscription boxes include an array of brands you know and love (hello, Glow Recipe and Kiehl’s) while mixing in a hefty amount of burgeoning beauty brands. You’ll find hair-care, skin-care, and body-care products, along with fragrances and cosmetics. Each of these boxes brings something unique to the table, whether it’s offering only full-size items, a devotion to Black-owned brands, only cruelty-free products, or picks tailored to your skin preferences. Whether you’re actually doing your holiday shopping or you just want it to feel like the holidays all year round, keep scrolling for our favorite beauty boxes, plus why we think they’re so special.
