Take the fuss out of shopping for beauty products and fashion by subscribing to one of these great subscription boxes.
Much as we love shopping—really we do—sometimes you need a bit of the guesswork taken out of your purchases. Or maybe you want to try something new but don't know where to start? Perhaps your fashion and beauty life has gotten stale and you want something to shake things up. Whatever your reasons may be, landing on a fashion and beauty subscription service is a great way to try something different. These easy options allow you to have items delivered right to your door, with minimal thinking on your part.
The Detox Market's Detox Box
If clean, green beauty is your jam then you have probably already heard of The Detox Market, your one-stop-shop of all things natural. The company offers The Detox Box which features a new brand in each month with at least $110 worth of green beauty picks (and they're often full size). You sign up in either 3- or 6-month commitments and pay $65 or $58, depending on which option you pick.
Frank And Oak's Style Plan
Frank And Oak is a great Canadian brand that often has perfect basics and fun fashion-forward pieces that are easy and wearable. It's why we love the brand. Even better? You can opt for its Style Plan monthly clothing box. You start by answering a few questions about your style, and then you'll get a preview of your monthly box (you'll get a new preview each month). Don't like what you see? Feel free to switch it up. Once you get your box at home, take a week to deicde what you like and only keep (and pay for) your favourites—send the items you want to pass on back to the brand, for free. You'll get discounts on all the items you keep and you won't pay for return shipping.
From Rachel's Tights Subscription
If you seem to wear dresses and skirts all the time, or just fancy a fun pair of tights every once in awhile, From Rachel is a great subscription for you. You can control how often your tights come and decide on styles that suit you—whether you love colour and polka dots or tend to prefer variations of black. These tights are designed in Montreal and made in Italy and you'll always get two pairs of tights for $27.50.
Amazon Prime Wardrobe
Amazon Prime is quickly becoming a one-stop-shop for pretty much everything you need—including clothing. You can sign up for Prime Wardrobe which allows you to shop for clothing from different brands that are offered on Amazon (just make sure you see the prime wardrobe logo as you pick items). Once you have three or more items (including clothing, shoes and accessories) you get them shipped to you and you get a week to decide what to keep. Send back what you don't want and then check out with the items you're going to keep. You get to try everything before you spend a dime, you save money on shipping fees and the service is included in your prime membership.
Ipsy's Glam Bag
The Glam Bag from Ipsy offers up 5 skin-care or beauty picks every month for only $10USD per month—although Canadians do need to pay a $4.95USD shipping fee. Still—that's a pretty great bargain if you're always looking to try new beauty products. The products are tailored to your own tastes and preferences thanks to an online questionnaire and your products are delivered to you in a cute, reusable bag.
