Earlier this year, I began my search for the best beauty boxes worth my money. I went through a phase where I just wanted to throw all my makeup away and purchase new products.
We can all agree that products are pricey. Listen, I would much rather pay for beauty products than bills but we are all adults and apparently, I need to make better decisions on what I spend my money on.
With so many cosmetic, skin, and hair care brands to choose from, it’s hard to choose which brand will suit you best.
There are a few characteristics the best beauty boxes have in common: they all have awesome products, they know what a good sample size is, and they throw in a few full size samples, too!
The best way to save money and indulge in products is by subscribing to a beauty box. Because I love you all so much, I went on the hunt for the best beauty boxes worth your money. Find your new favorite makeup must-haves on a dime, and kickoff 2018 with a new well-deserved package every month.
