What can I say? I’m a bit of a beauty subscription box tart. I’ve tried most of them over the past couple of years. It stands to reason then that I will have recieved my fair share of the good and not so good subscription boxes.
With experience the not so good boxes have been cancelled, but I’ve remained loyal to my favourites. So I thought it would be a good idea to share with you what I consider to be my top 3 beauty subscription boxes.
So let’s begin the count down.
In 3rd place is the You Beauty Box. This is the cheapest subscription boxes you will find in the UK. Priced at just £6.95 including P&P you are able to choose two items from a menu on the 1st of each month, plus you then recieve some extra little treats.
There are often mini’s of high end products to choose from which I love as They would normally be outside of my beauty budget.
This hasn’t rated higher because it is one of the slowest shipping services. It can take a week from placing you monthly order to then recieving it.
Coming in 2nd is the Look Fantastic Beauty Box. These are usually themed boxes, with June’s box being the #LFJETSETTER box.
Some of the brands can tend to be a little bit repetitive, Korres, Caudalie and Murad feature regularly. However there is usually a good variety of products in each box. It is rare that I recieve a product that I wouldn’t actually use.
Focus tends to be on skincare and body care though there is usually at least one make-up item in each box.
All the products featured are available to purchase at Lookfantastic.com.
Prices for the subscription service start at £11.25, billed per month depending on the length of subscription you sign up for. This is the price for a 12 month subscription and increased slightly if you sign up for a shorter subscription.
Lastly my Number 1 beauty subscription box is from Love Me Beauty.
It also works differently to most other subscription boxes, as you have complete control over what products you recieve. This includes selecting your own make-up shades, so no more recieving shades you don’t like.
Brands that have featured in the past include Rodial, Nuxe, Too Faced, Cailyn. That is just a tiny selection and as you can see they are all high end brands.
It works on a credit based system, that you spend in the boutique. You can also buy extra credit if you want to add more to your box than your monthly allowance.
A monthly rolling subscription costs £10 plus p&p which is £2.95.
Every 3 months you also recieve some bonus loyalty credit.
I have a reveral code for Love Me Beauty that offers 30 extra credits on joining. (Worth approx £21) *
So those are my Top 3 Beauty Subscription boxes. Let me know if you think there are any new subscription services you think I should be trying out.
