As The Birchbox Launches, We Review Our Favourite Beauty Boxes
GALLERY >> The Best Beauty Boxes
The beauty world has gone bananas for beauty boxes - you know, where you pay a monthly fee and receive a box of mini beauty treats each month - and it seems everyone wants to be in on them. If you're deabting which one to go for, we've done the hard work and chosen the top 5 on the market to make it a little easier for you.
1. Birchbox - £10 plus P+P
First up is Birchbox, which is already a huge hit in the States and prides itself on it’s ‘try, learn, buy’ approach where you can try lots of newbies and decided on which you prefer so that future boxes are more tailored to what you like. Even better, Birchbox has access to up-and-coming brands that you wouldn’t be able to try anywhere else and gives you access to exclusive events and insider tips. What more could you possibly want?!
2. Glossybox - £10 plus P+P
We instantly fell for Glossybox's neat and girly packaging and the quality of the products in each box are basically unbeatable. This month we got the cutest of cute eye masks (every girl needs one of them!) and the great thing about this brand is that they go beauty trend scouting across the globe - Paris, Tokyo, you name it - to really find the best and more unusual of the brands. Choose it if you like your indulgent bath oils and classic makeup and we promise the surprise products from unusual spots across the world will really delight you.
3. Amarya - £10 plus P+P
If you're a natural and organic girl, this is the one to go for. Amarya boxes contain things like Dr Haushka and Cowshed, all those lovely but also skin-friendly brands that are kind to your face as well as the environment. Via it's affordable price tag you can test out all the new organic products hitting the beauty market and then know which ones you really love. Choose this is you're an eco girl at heart.
4. Feelunique.co.uk - £9.95 plus P+P
The UK's favourite beauty website got in on the action too with their own monthly delivery packed full of customers favourites. The beauty with them is that they can see consumber deamnd and know what is most popular, offering it to newcomers who might not know where to begin with all the brands on offer.
