Beauty Box a Great Way to Try Before You Buy
Give yourself a monthly beauty boost with a Look Fantastic Beauty Box, get new products delivered to you each month, these glorious boxes will brighten your day as well as your skin on a cold Monday morning.
What is a Beauty Box?
Beauty Boxes have recently grown in popularity with many companies offering subscriptions, and one-off purchases, of gorgeous boxes, packed full of beauty products. It is a chance to try out new products and brands and top up your beauty supplies.
There are a variety of options on the market, and you can tailor your box to your own skin type and personal preferences. You can opt for a box that is mostly skin care products or make-up. They often do themed boxes to correspond with the season. For example, this month is all about wellness timed perfectly with the start of the new year.
What do you get in a Beauty Box?
My personal favourite is from Look Fantastic and when you receive your first box of goodies you can expect to receive Body Wash, Hand Cream, Shampoo and Conditioner, Lip Plump to name a few. Some products are samples size, but others can be full-sized products.
A big part of the appeal is you do not know what you will be sent, and it is a fun way to try out new brands and products without committing to a big purchase of a new moisturiser, for example, only to find that it may not be suitable. It is like getting a birthday present each month!
Are Beauty Boxes good value for money?
The short answer is YES! The savings you can make are huge. It is not uncommon for the total value of the products to run up to £120.00 and you pay on average £12.00. The higher price- points the more expensive the products will be. Glam Box had a Valentine’s box selling for £55 that had a total value if bought individually of £198!
Buy a Beauty Box and Save £150!
A one-time purchase Beauty Box by Smart Skincare and GlossyBox Grazia is such an epic deal with big-name products such as, Aveda, ESPA, Murad, Dr Botanicals, Dr Lipp and Shiseido. It costs £50.00 but the valued items totalled £200. Saving you megabucks.
The subscription boxes are much cheaper and if you commit to a whole year can cost under £10.00. You can commit to 3, 6, or 12 months and cancel at any time. Also, subscribers to the Look Fantastic boxes get access to the fab unboxed area of the website that has exclusive new offers and content.
Look Fantastic has this great offer for Jan22, it is a wellness-themed box that contains six items worth £93.00 and new subscribers only pay £10.00 for their first box. After the introductory price, you pay £15 per month if you are on a rolling monthly subscription with the price reducing if you increase your commitment. Six months is £13.75, and twelve months is £13.00.
Another great benefit with the Look Fantastic Beauty Box is you get the latest issue of Elle magazine and Edit mag, which are both full to the brim with the hottest looks, trends, and beauty tips. This makes the price of the monthly box very good value.
Buy a one-off Beauty Box
If you don’t want to commit to a monthly subscription box then you can buy boxes as and when you want them or as gifts. There are some great deals and packages available. There are loads to choose from including make-up, skincare, haircare, and they all offer a huge saving if items were purchased separately. The Haircare Bundle is currently only £24.00, and the combined cost is over £80! Included in this awesome deal are the following products.
Overall Beauty Boxes are a great way to get your beauty fix each month without breaking the bank and you get to try out new things. You can keep smaller-sized products for your gym or overnight bag. Also, they make really thoughtful gifts, you can give the whole box or select products to give as a small treat. These are especially lovely to gift someone as a Christmas gift.
There are lots on the market so shop around for what suits you best. There are some great niche boxes such as Vegan or Cruelty-free. These boxes, whether subscription or one-offs are a brilliant way to try new brands and products that you may not get access to via the High Street shops.
Other popular beauty subscription boxes include Birchbox, Next beauty Box, Feel Unique beauty box, Glossybox, ASOS beauty Box, Boots beauty Box, Cohorted beauty Box. Even influencers are putting together their very own curated subscription boxes such as the Molly Mae beauty box.
My advice is to give them a try, look for a great deal and then evaluate after a couple of months how useful they have been. It may be just what you’ve been looking for.
