Subscription Boxes Review

So  we said in the name of  frugality we would turn to subscription boxes for our beauty needs.We chose Allure and Essence because they were associated with major media publications.We'll while Essence Beauty Box was heavy on the hair care products,  we didn't mind so much, they had this amazing Keratin Treatment Conditioner that left our hair so silky. They just stopped the beauty boxes,  no explanation September was the last one, it was nice.Allure who doesn't love the beauty boxes from them, until we started to see the same company with different products, most customers want beauty samples like their beauty editors.
