5 Of The Best Beauty Box Subscriptions For You
Whether you're looking to give yourself a little monthly treat, or you're looking for the perfect present for a birthday or Mother's Day, these beauty boxes are just the ticket!
If you love makeup and skincare, but find it hard to find time to shop for yourself, or to keep up with trends, a beauty box is the perfect solution.
What Is A Beauty Box?
Beauty boxes are every beauty fanatic's dream! You subscribe to a company, paying a monthly fee, and you get a wonderful selection of makeup, skincare or hair products from the best well-known and up-and-coming brands delivered straight to your door every month!
Here are some of the best ones available in Ireland, which we know you will love:
One of the original beauty boxes, Glossybox features a diverse selection of five products that include niche, high-end and emerging brands. It's also pretty trend-driven, so you know that what you get will be in-line with what's currently in season and on trend.
Cost: €14.00 plus p&p
This beauty box contains five products, but the products are a little more high-end and of the pricier variety. It is a pretty small box, as the sample sizes are quite small, but they are very luxurious products. A little goes a long way! Every now and then, there is a full-size treat. The cost of your monthly subscription certainly covers what you get. So good value for money.
I subscribed to Birchbox as a little monthly treat to myself. It’s a great way of trying out samples of beauty products without splashing out on a full-size item which you might end up not using. I’m about to receive my 6th box and so far, I’ve been happy with most of the items Birchbox have sent me. As well as sample size hair, make-up and beauty products, I’ve gotten make-up brushes, a brush cleaner and a re-usable make-up remover pad. Favourite products so far? This Works Sleep Spray, Clarins Hand Cream and Beauty Protector Protect and Detangle spray. Perfect for my daughter’s wayward hair! - Jennifer, Mom of two
Cost: £10.00 plus p&p
