12 beauty subscription boxes that are actually worth the hype

January 20th, 2021

More than a decade ago, the first subscription boxes started and they have since grown immensely, offering consumers a unique option of buying stuff without even having to choose.

With beauty boxes leading the way, the subscription box industry is here to stay. As one would expect, it’s mostly millenials who are already subscribers, but baby boomers are not completely unfamiliar with them. In fact, a high percentage of the latter is planning on subscribing to such services soon.

But why are subscription boxes so popular?

Well, in a world where everyone is too busy to go shopping or even shop online, these boxes come in handy to consumers who find a selection of products on their doorstep every month without having to spend time at the store or eshop.

Of course, the fact that these services save you money is a key factor. Let’s not forget that all these boxes contain products that cost much more than the monthly fee.

Below, we have compiled the 12 most popular beauty boxes that are worth your money. Let’s take a closer look, shall we?

1. Fine selection of goodies: My Inspo Box, $29.99 bi-monthly

The box in question sends subscribers over $125-$200 worth of premium products for only one-third of the price every month. From bubble masks, scented candles, to notebooks and thermos, these boxes contain amazing products that will inspire the receiver. What makes the My Inspo Box so great is its’s wide variety of items ranging from products for lifestyle, wellness, beauty, home and more.

Most other boxes stick to one main ‘theme’ for each box, but the My Inspo Box contains a wide variety of products that consumers will actually use. The best part is that each box contains anywhere from 5-7 full-size premium products for just $29.99! Why have mini samples when you can get the full size?

If you sign up today the current month’s box will be shipped out to you within 24 hours. After that, you will get a new box bi-monthly, which will be shipped out on the 11th of the month.

Customers rave about the product saying,

“I ordered the August/September box and I was so impressed with it. It arrived quickly and they packaged everything up carefully so nothing would break. I am not a coffee drinker, so I did not use the coffee. However, I gave it to my mom. I am excited about the rest of the items. I really appreciated the free hair masks I received with my box. Reasonable price and fast shipping! 🙂” -Robyn C.
