You know that feeling you get when your online shopping arrives on your doorstep? Even though you’re the one who paid for it and you know exactly what’s inside, you can’t shake those ‘A present? For me?’ good feels. Well, those same happy vibes are what you’ll get when you sign up for a monthly beauty box. Only you won’t know what’s inside, which makes it even better.
The way beauty subscription boxes work is you sign up for a one-off, monthly or annual subscription to regularly receive a beautifully-packed curated collection of beauty products in the mail. Each box will generally have a guaranteed amount of items inside, but the exact products are never known until you unwrap your bundle of joy.
While there aren’t a lot of beauty subscription boxes in Australia anymore (we blame the not-cheap postage costs), there are still some really great ones, as well as a number of international beauty boxes that ship down under at a pretty reasonable price.
