Holiday shopping is no joke! After barely surviving #BlackFriday and #CyberMonday, I don’t know if I’m going to make it these last few weeks. The one thing that makes finding the perfect gift so much easier? Beauty box subscriptions! They are all the rage right now and there are so many amazing options out with expertly curated items that will surely impress the beauty fanatic in your life. I recently signed up for the Essence Beauty Box and I am obsessed! It is like my own personal beauty collection being delivered to my door every month. I get to try out some fab products before I actually commit to them, which has saved time and money in my beauty routine. Major win!
If you’re scratching your head trying to figure out gift ideas, get into the three beauty box subscriptions no one can live without (seriously!):
The brainchild of two friends with a love of the internet and an itch to create a better way to shop for beauty products, Birchbox delivers personalized samples from niche and deluxe brands, such as Nars, Stila, Cynthia Rowley and Dr. Lipp, plus one non-beauty item for your enjoyment. You can get the entire box for $10 per month or $110 for the entire year. Also, if you sign-up now, you get a free gift with your subscription. Use code WGIFT at checkout.
Essence Beauty Box
As I mentioned above, this box is a personal fave. I’ve loved reading Essence since I was a little girl so it didn’t take much convincing for me to sign up. Essence Beauty Box subscribers will receive five monthly samples, giving them the opportunity to test some of the latest and most innovative products out. Also, beauty information, tips, and tricks will be included for ways to best use each. Brands featured in the box include Smashbox, Suave, Eden Bodyworks, Black Opal and many more. You can get in on the fabulous with just $15 per month, $90 for six months, or $165 for the full year.
CurlBox is just the answer you need for finding the best products for your hair. Every month, four or more hair products are delivered to your front step that will help you discover what is optimal for your hair type. I’m all here for this because let’s face it, YouTube beauty tutorials can only get you so far. This way you’ll be able to test products and actually monitor the results personally. Try it out for just $20 a month.
