The battle of the beauty boxes

You can get the hottest new hair, makeup and skincare releases delivered straight to your door every month.

If you are a beauty addict, willing to try out as many products as possible, then signing up for a surprise delivery of beauty gifts should be something to consider.

Over the past few years, the number of subscription boxes has skyrocketed, as more and more have launched. We are not only talking about beauty here. There’s food, shoes and even fitness clothing monthly subscriptions to cater to all your needs.

The concept is very simple. You sign up, pay a monthly fee and then sit back and relax because a box containing five or six beauty products will be landing at your door once a month. Inside you get a mix of sample size and full-size items, but overall, the value for money is amazing.

We rounded up the best beauty boxes that you should subscribe to right now:

1. Glossybox £10

2. Birchbox £10 plus £2.95 postage

3. Pink Parcel £10.50

Yaaaaaas to all the amazing bits in this month's Pink Parcel 🙌 #PinkParcel
