Beauty box subscriptions might just be the best subscription service to ever exist. Forget Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hello Fresh. Who needs food when you could have a box full of beauty product samples delivered directly to your doorstep each month? But that doesn't mean it's easy to pick which box to sign up for.

In an ideal world, we'd sign up for every single one of them. Unfortunately, we've got a Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hello Fresh subscription to pay for, so we've spent hours working out the beauty subscription boxes that come out on top. Full to the brim with new brands, classic products, and makeup accessories you didn't know you needed, there's something for everyone — meaning they're one of the most cost-efficient ways to try before you buy and refine your beauty routines.

Click through to see the seven best beauty subscription boxes you can — and should — sign up for.

Target Beauty Box

Target Beauty Box

Ideal for the budget beauty buyer out there, the Target Beauty Box ($7) offers seven travel-sized (and, oftentimes, bestselling) drugstore essentials in one package — and you can't beat that price.


Glossybox ($21) is one of the original beauty boxes, making it a great place to start if you're new to beauty box subscriptions. Packaged in their signature pink box, subscribers can expect a monthly delivery of five surprise beauty products of different sizes and price points.

Sunday Riley Subscription Box

Sunday Riley Subscription Box

It's not just the brand's skincare products you can expect from the Sunday Riley Subscription Box ($85), but you'll also receive a curated gifting of complementary items that fall under a curated "theme." In its latest "Not Safe For Work" box, for example, you'll find eight sex-positive, drool-worthy products — from a statement necklace that doubles as a vibrator, the brand's very own massage candle, bubble bath, and more.

Look Fantastic

From the cult-favorite online beauty store, Look Fantastic's beauty box ($19) is just as it sounds: fantastic. With a focus on quality and a mix of full-size and sample-size products, you can't get a bad box. This month's Hygge-themed box includes ESPA Smooth & Firm Body Butter, This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray, Nuxe Huile Multi Usage Dry Oil, Dr Botanicals Hemp Infused Natural Nutrition Moisturizer, and more.


FabFitFun ($50) is released seasonally, meaning each delivery is overflowing with eight to 10 full-sized premium products, valued at over $200. Though there's a mix of beauty, fitness, lifestyle, and fashion, you can personalize each box to suit your beauty needs. The best part? Once you become a member, you receive access to exclusive sales and FabFitFunTV.

Mintd Box

The Mintd Box (price varies) is a luxury subscription box tailored to your beauty profile, which you fill out when you first sign up. You can pick either a three, six, or 12-month subscription and each month, you'll receive a box of four to five products, ranging from skin care to hair care, makeup, nails, bath and body, and accessories. Just a note: the service is based out of the UK, so expect to pay anywhere up to $10 additional for delivery to the US.


Birchbox ($15) is all about samples, meaning every month you receive a selection of the latest and greatest in skin care and beauty to test in the comfort of your own home. The longer you're a subscriber, the more personalized your beauty box becomes, and you can earn loyalty points when you buy the full-sized product of anything you've tried.
