Beauty Boxes- a new way to sample!

Gone are the days when you had to walk into a department store to check out a new product on the market. Nevermind standing there in front of a less than impressed sales person who is talking your ear off about why you need this product. Oh and let's not forget the foreboding look they give you when you ask for a sample to try before you spend a ridiculous amount of your hard earned money on a product that isn't gonna do ANY of the things this person is claiming it should.

Now, there is a new way to try brand name, high end beauty products without wasting your money or even leaving the comfort of your own home! Beauty box sampling programs are revolutionizing the way companies market their products as well as the way consumers buy products. There are a number of these programs popping up all over the world. I have recently subscribed to 3 of them.

How do they work?
The subscription periods can vary depending on what you choose. You can go monthly, quarterly or even yearly. Though prices will vary amongst the different boxes, they typically run between $12-15 (canadian$) per month plus applicable taxes. This fee includes your shipping. Each month, you are sent a box with 4-6 deluxe samples of various beauty products. It can be anything... skincare, haircare, makeup, or even fragrance and nail care. Often, you will get at least one FULL SIZED product too! That can add up to tremendous value!  The best part is... it's always a surprise! You fill out a beauty profile and the products are chosen for your box based on your preferences as well as current trends.

There are also incentives on many of the beauty box sites to fill out product reviews and questionnaires. You will earn points for doing these as well as for referring people to sign up for the programs. The points  collected can earn you a free box or discount on merchandise.

These Beauty Box Programs are definitely game changers for me! Of course, I will still go for my little jaunts around Sephora and department stores to play with everything;)

I am looking very forward to seeing how these boxes measure up to each other over the coming months. Stay tuned to my YouTube channel for reveals and come back for product reviews and much more!
