Beauty Spot : Subcription Boxes
A couple of months ago we said we were going back to subcription boxes. Because we checked out our beauty bills for the month and it was outrageous.
Especially since we noticed we were always buying new products. So how did we do...
First thing there are so many beauty boxes out there, it's so hard to believe and choose. However, we whittled it down to two and it's the two that are associated with major media publications.
So you ask???
We noticed that other subscription boxes had a two for one deal on boxes that didn't sell. Red Flag this means they are giving you old beauty products, which is not cool.
Allure is the most popular of all the beauty boxes and last month the samples coincided with the Nordstrom Annual Beauty Sale, so that was a plus and we went to get our mid summer needs.
Essence is another box for women of color and is also associated with magazine.
Note Allure is owned by Conde Nast and Essence is own by Time Inc.
Therefore they are not going to recycle products or give back logs because there reputation is on the line.
The reason we liked both boxes is for two different reasons.
Essence focuses more on hair care we noticed, which is excellent and made me a loyal customer to a Keratin Treatment protein pack. Also you are more likely to get new products that are just about to launch.
Allure is mainstream products for all types of people. All of there products are mainstream and they even have Back to School boxes for high school and college students. And Allure Beauty Thrills boxes are more expensive, but if you have guests for summer and winter holiday months, they are well worth the try.
The beauty company that is going to be the next major thing is Pur-lisse. They have them in both boxes and the moisturizer does leave your skin feeling amazing.
Some people complain, but that is what happened to Juice Beauty, they flooded the subscription boxes and Goop bought part of the company now it's a prestige luxury item.
So, we look forward to our monthly beauty swag and we hope you enjoy your boxes!
