Fortunately, we have just the thing for you: beauty subscription boxes! These nifty sample boxes will let you try out different goodies for less, and they might just introduce you to your next favourite product.

What’s A Subscription Box?

If this is your first time hearing about subscription boxes, where have you been?

Subscription boxes have been around since the early 2000s and have become immensely popular since then. Basically, these boxes contain samples of different products that subscribers can try out. Samples are usually much smaller than the actual product, so if you don’t like them, not a lot will be wasted.

Also, they don’t cost as much!

If you like them, great! You’ve just discovered a new product you never would’ve otherwise, which is why people love these boxes.
