It’s super fun and you save tons of money! With some boxes you also get to try trendy, new, and innovative cosmetics which is a blast! It’s really nice that you get try samples of new products before you buy them.

Now that new Beauty subscription services seem to be popping up every day, it can be hard to navigate through which services are the best and which ones to avoid! Believe me, some beauty boxes can truly be a rip off! I should know, I have received over 25 of them!
For this “best beauty subscription boxes” list, I took all the factors listed below into consideration:
- Number of products you receive
- Price of products vs price of box
- Size of products (sample/full size)
- Presentation of box and website
Cheap Beauty Deals also did hours of research online to see what people in the community are saying about each company’s subscription box. Being a self-proclaimed beauty box addict, I have tried over 15 different beauty and health box companies and I can say that many are truly a joy to receive. However, some were a big and utter disappointment!
This list of the top beauty boxes should help you figure out what subscription best fits you and your lifestyle! Because those dead presidents should be spent on a beauty box that is truly worth it! If you take the time to read this article and watch the videos I’m confident we can find the perfect one (or couple!) for you……
Below is a list of the best monthly beauty subscription boxes that you can count on for some beauty joy each month!!!!!
Beauty Box’s You Must Try in 2017:
This is not a beauty box, but rather a beauty bag must have 2017! You will not only be happy with the array of products you receive each month, but also the price! This bag is only 10.00 dollars!!!!!!
Every month I always say to myself, how do they do it!? ipsy is a beauty bag subscription line that was started by a popular Youtube vlogger named Michelle Phan. She converted her YouTube lovers to 1.5 million ipsy subscribers and counting! So you know that this vlogger knows the importance of a good product and how awesome it is to get beauty products at a good value! ipsy is one of the cheapest beauty subscriptions out there! You receive 4-5 deluxe and full size cosmetics, face care products, beauty tools or hair products in each bag! Plus a super stylish cosmetic bag to keep your new goodies (or old ones) in!
I have not yet seen a new ipsy bag that was not totally cool and hip! My latest one came with a pair of huge smiling lips with a cool two toned pattern. The products range from high end to drugstore brands, but ipsy does not send any product that is not worth a try or anything you will literally want to throw away! This being said, there is a long waiting list! But once you get off it, you will get your first bag within a month’s time! Plus you get FREE shipping and each bag is usually worth around 70 dollars or more! It’s not fancily packaged but with a beauty score like this, who needs fancy packaging!!!??
This bag also comes with a fun theme (although not always completely relating to your ipsy bag,) that has things for you to check out on the ipsy website and different ipsy tips and tricks! You will also get emails and coupons on discounted items on the ipsy site. You get a lot of value with this beauty subscription and your ten dollars stretches further than you can imagine! Out of all the beauty bags and boxes to chose from, i can confidently say that ipsy is number 1!!!! And there is no other beauty bag like ipsy!

OMG Beauty Lovers every where have been going nuts over this beauty subscription box for the past year! Any high end cosmetic lovers dream Bbox! This beauty box contains 5-6 beauty items that will include nail care, skin care, makeup, haircare, fragrance and more! Plus every single item is FULL SIZE and high end! No more teeny tiny samples for us!
Seeing that most beauty boxes (I only have one other one on this list that contains ALL Full-size products) only contain a mixture of small and deluxe size samples and this box is only $21 dollars for ALL full size products, this Beauty Box gives you huge bang for your buck! It also seems to just get better each month and has never disappointed! I had a hard time figuring out if this box should maybe even tie with the ipsy beauty bag, but because of the price and the packaging and customer reviews, Boxycharm had to take the number two spot on the best beauty subscription boxes list!
That being said, This box is also hard to get a hold of! There is a huge waiting list (One thing I suggest is to join the waiting list as soon as possible and go 4 a longer subscription like a 3 to 6 months rather than a one-month Subscription because you seem to get your box quicker that way and it’s a guarantee lock in for that amount of time). I have even heard of people waiting up to six months before receiving their first box because it is so coveted! Each box comes with a really detailed item card explaining about each product And usually comes with a coupon so if you love the product in your box you can receive it at a discounted price. If you are into high-end Cosmetics this is the box for you! Out of all the boxes on the market boxycharm has the best in high-end products! It also usually comes with a beauty brush or tool every month that makes this Beauty Box stand out from all the rest! And free Shipping! If you are one of the lucky ones who get a boxycharm subscription don’t let it go! You will regret it!

I got my very first Play by Sephora box this month and it did not disappoint one bit! But let me start off by telling you, I first heard of this beauty box (that ends up having a bag inside it) in December 2016. It was the most popular and sought off beauty subscription service at the beginning of 2017 and Sephora did not open up new spots till May 2017. But…. when I read the reviews for April 2017, they were not good. It seemed that tons of Sephora Play monthly beauty subscribers cancelled their subscriptions.
Saying things like “Play by Sephora has really gone down hill, this beauty box-bag is not even worth ten bucks!” So it must have been really bad! This was the top rated beauty subscription box at the beginning of 2017 and it dropped hard! Because each beauty box-bag comes with Sephora points that you can put toward free products at Sephora! You get 50 in every monthly beauty box alone for when you go on your next Sephora shopping spree! Plus there is no purchasing amount so you could literally spend a cent and get your 50 points! This is called the PLAY! Pass that also has a voucher for a one on one tutorial. That is equal to spending a whole 50 dollars alone at Sephora! (Plus the awesome and amazing beauty one on one advice that is priceless!)
You also get 5 deluxe samples of prestige products and a beauty surprise that is all wonderfully and cutely displayed in a Sephora collectable bag. A PLAY! BOOK that has tons of beauty tricks and advice and last but not least, A Sephora PLAY! DATE that gives you a pass to an exclusive class that only PLAY! Subscribers get to sit in on. Oh and did I mention…… your pass includes a plus one! So bring a date!
Unfortunately, there has to be one in your area, there is not one in mine. Waaaaaaah! I can tell you this though- When Sephora says prestige products-they are not jokin! You get a wide range of fragrance, cosmetic face and hair samples that are all on the high end side of the beauty spectrum! (Little tell…. First thing I saw when i opened my beauty bag was a Versace Bright Crystal sample and a Pore Balm by Benefit! YAY!) So I’m wondering if the reason I finally got on the Sephora Play list is because so many dropped out when they got one bad bag, or if it headed that way for a while?
I did do my research on past months before and I didn’t see anything horrible! It’s a good question, but for now, I’m so happy I got on that list because Play by Sephora rocks! Out of all my beauty box subscription adventures, it definitely has the most high-end / recognizable names in the beauty world! And although they are just deluxe size samples, (I’m beginning to learn this means ether regular normal size that we are use to with a fancy name or a size that is a little bigger but not near a full size) these are normally products I would not try out because of the high end name price! When it comes to beauty products, more expensive does not always mean better, but there are those times it does! LOL! PLAY! By Sephora gives us the chance to try those products out and save for the ones that are worth it. That makes this monthly beauty subscription GOLD.
This is a really well rounded box that comes with 5-6 beauty samples that are deluxe size and some full size samples. Each box always comes with a really cute theme and packaging plus a really cool fold out itemized product description flyer that is poster size! Out of all the beauty boxes I have checked out in the last 6 months, this one is by far packaged the best! There really is something to receiving a beautifully packaged box….. It really is like opening a present!
One of the cool thing about Glossybox is that it is customized for you, (you take a quiz when you subscribe so the company figures out the products you like most) so not everyone gets the same products in their box! Guarantee each box has at least one Full size sample! It is really well rounded and has a huge fan base! You can also buy any of the products you get at their Glossybox store that has just opened at a discounted price and you can receive Glossy points by filling out product reviews and referring friends to receive a box for free! And you get free shipping! Another really cool thing about Glossy is that they have the hook up on tons of products that are made EXCLUSIVELY for Glossy customers only! This year alone I have received a amazing full size exclusive perfume that smells spot on too Dolce Rosa and a lip gloss! This month comes with 8 different products with 3 of them being full size and 2 lip products by ColourPop Cosmetics valued
at 6.00 dollars each! Although it has been reported to have more face products then cosmetics as of late, I think this box is a slam dunk and has never done me wrong! It also has special boxes themed for certain months like February’s rose printed box and last year they had a really cool shiney oil splatty one. (I just saw this from research but I was quite jealous! I did receive the February Rose box for my very first Glossy and was uber impressed! But have not got a special box since…. But that’s what makes them special right!?) You can also get your first Glossy beauty subscription box for only 10.00 your first month and can cancel anytime you want! So check it out for ten right? If you don’t like, cancel and try a different one! I promise you will at least enjoy a few products they have in your 10.00 box. Oh, and did I mention….. Each box is worth at least 50.00 dollars or more! So you get your money’s worth! That is one of the many reasons why Glossybox is the number four must have beauty box of 2017……

#5 Lip Monthly
Price: $12.00 (Only 6.00 your first month!!!!)
This beauty box (I guess really I should call it a beauty bag……) okay, beauty bag…. Is really cool! You get 3-4 FULL SIZE lip products and a mystery gift in every bag! PLUS, THIS MONTH YOU CAN GET YOUR FIRST BAG FOR ONLY 6.00 BUCKS! You heard me right Plus you get free shipping so your beauty bag truly is only 6 smackaroos! It is really unique in the sense that it is ALWAYS full size products and lip products only! (Other than your surprise gift.)
Lip Monthly also has a really good relationship with high end brands so you always get at least one in your bag! Between 50-80 dollars worth in product, this not so well known (not yet at least……) brand is really worth it! It sells out quick though! I know right now there are under 70 spots left so jump on it why you can! Each bag also comes with a really cute little zip up cosmetic bag and the surprise gift is always really killer! Last month I got a really nice Moonstruck silver eye shadow and the beauty bag before that I got a awesome sheet mask (all the rage right now) by Bio Celluse. And there is something really nice about getting a bag that comes with only full size lip products. It’s a cosmetic that I normally don’t buy much of on my own and I find a lot of the boxes don’t come with the best ones so this beauty bag rounds out my cosmetic purchases perfectly!
