Nothing beats the excitement generated by the thud of a box of beauty products hitting the doormat; particularly when you add the element of surprise you get by signing up to a monthly beauty subscription box. There are many to choose from, ranging from high-end to budget; some vegan; many eco-friendly. Which one is for you? Here is an overview of a few we found when trawling the web (we’ve got beauty on our brains!).
Birchbox is one of the more popular subscription boxes, and rightly so. Its low price point makes it accessible to many people, and there are often discounts available for new subscribers. Each month you receive five beauty products personalised to your skin, hair and style, in a beautiful keepsake box. Plus, as a member, you get discounts off branded beauty products in the Birchbox shop. Birchbox is £12.95 a month, with discounts available for 3 and 6-monthly sign-ups.
