Considering expanding your beauty repertoire? A subscription box is an easy and affordable way to try out several products each month without lifting a finger. Let someone else pick out cosmetic, skincare and haircare treats for you – all you have to do is wait. Many services invite you to state your preferences when you sign up, ensuring that the items that arrive work for you. The price of a subscription varies between providers, as do the kinds of products you get in each box.
