The Subscription Beauty Boxes That Are Actually Worth The Money
We give you the lowdown on which beauty boxes you should totally subscribe to if you want some serious bang for your buck.
Beauty boxes are amazing. I love them. It’s like getting a little present every month from yourself, to yourself. Plus, they give you the chance to try out products that you might not otherwise have found without a lil sample being posted right through your door!
Beauty boxes usually come with a few travel-size samples and a few full-size, so they do tend to be worth your money if you get at least full-size thing that you want. That being said, not all beauty boxes were made equal.
Here are the tried and tested subscription beauty boxes that are actually worth the money.
GLOSSYBOX is a real favourite here in the Student Beans office, and not just because students get 40% off their first box (although that does make it that little bit sweeter). GLOSSYBOX never fails to deliver some real winners every month. In August, I got a bottle of Moroccan Oil, which was worth more than I paid for the box itself. Now that is bang for your buck. In September, it was all about delicious products and included an extra edible treat which I’m not complaining about. 🍫
GLOSSYBOX subscriptions start from £8.50 per month (+P&P)
ROCCABOX is a great value subscription box with around 6 products per box for only £10. The September box included a cleanser from Murad and This Works' well loved Deep Sleep Pillow Spray, that’ll send you off to sleep every evening even when exam stress is getting to you. The variation of different types of products is awesome.
ROCCABOX subscription is £10 (+P&P)
Birchbox is a real treat. The boxes change in design each month and I have to admit I’m currently using them as makeup drawers on my desk. The best part about Birchbox is you can review the products after you’ve received them in your box and then earn points to redeem off of the Birchbox Shop. Plus, you get 10% off the products that are in the box if you want to purchase them full-size on site.
Birchbox subscriptions are £10 per month (+P&P)
LATEST IN BEAUTY
Latest in Beauty are different to other beauty subscription boxes in that you can choose how many products you want a month and what those products are from a specially curated list of top beauty brands. Although slightly more expensive at £15 per month for 3 products, we do appreciate the luxury of being able to select exactly what we want each month. If subscription services aren’t for you then check out the collection boxes on Latest in Beauty where you know exactly the products you’re getting and how much they are for a one off fee!
