Ask Elle: Best of Beauty Boxes

Do you have any monthly subscription boxes? I've tried out several, and I get asked this question fairly often, especially since it's a new year. Today I'm sharing favorites. Enjoy.

Birchbox--This was the first sub I ever had and I was a member for a year!
  • High-end beauty and lifestyle samples
  • $10 month ($20 for men)
  • Questionnaire profile
  • Samples and full-size
  • Point system to redeem on items in the shop or you can purchase them as well
  • Best For: Fans of and occasional makeup users; you get to try high-end products you might not have been exposed to otherwise
    •  I received mostly skincare samples, even after changing my profile, so I didn't like all of my boxes. However, most people are huge fans
      • Similar sub I'd like to try: Glossybox

Wantable--Features subscriptions for makeup, intimate apparel, and accessories
  • The best in beauty, curated by an industry insider
