How many of you guys are beauty junkies like us as Sarah Scoop? We love trying out new products but we’re not big fans of buying a $50 product, especially full size if we may not like it. But there are a few awesome ways you can get samples that will last you a while. They don’t cost much and you get to try new products every month!
I love Birchbox! This is a beauty subscription service that gives you 4-5 deluxe beauty samples every month for ONLY $10 a month. Yes, only $10. Can you believe that? I’ve subscribed to this for about 8 months now, and there’s always at least two products that I love in each box. You can also purchase beauty products at this site and you get some amazing deals as well. Every time you buy a product you get points where 10 points = $1. I remember getting a Kerástase product ($54) for only $34! Comment at the end of this blog if you guys would like to see some of the amazing products I’ve gotten in my past boxes!
2. Glossy Box
This and the rest of the boxes below have the same concept as Birchbox does. The Glam Box has a subscription for $21 a month, a 6-month subscription for $115, and a full year subscription for $220. I suppose it’s more expensive because they only have certain brands in their boxes and they’re more expensive such as Burberry, Sebastian Professional, Ahava, Biolage, OPI, etc. If you go on their website, you can take a peek at their past boxes- there are some awesome products in there and definitely very expensive, high-ended brands!
For only $12 a month you can get the Beauty Box Five! These boxes ship mid-month including brands such as Makeup Geek, Blinc Cosmetics, h2o+, etc. To be honest, I haven’t heard of most of these brands but I suppose it doesn’t hurt to buy one and check it out! You can always discover new products and some of the ones you haven’t heard could be the best ones! This box doesn’t have products you can buy off of the website or have a points system like Birchbox or Glossy Box but it is only $12 a month!
This box is for all of you nail polish junkies out there! Originally this box is for $20/month.There was a deal a while ago where you could get your first box for 1 cent (of course I had to try it out!). When I got my box I got pedicure foot cream- it was definitely a good, big size- two beautiful color nail polishes in lilac and ruby red, and cute toe separators! The only reason I didn’t keep going with the subscription was because I’m not a huge nail polish fan, I love make-up and hair products a lot more! But this is great for those who love experimenting with new polish colors. You also get free shipping on any products you purchase through site, extra discounts, and 20% of all purchases in the Julep Maven Boutique.
5. Glymm Box
I just came across this actually, and just looking at the brands I want to purchase one of these boxes! For $12/month this box features a lot of brands such as T3, Yves Saint Laurent, Murad, and even Butter London (their nail polishes are to die for)! Whoa! Enough said. High brands AND only for $12- I might just snag this for myself ;). From reading some other reviews on other blogs, I can tell these are good sized products that people are paying for.
