For some people, beauty subscription boxes are the ideal way to find new products. It requires a comparatively low investment of time and money, and in exchange, you get exposure to diverse products handpicked by experts. A win-win.
But if you've ever been a part of one, you might find that you accrue tiny sample bottles faster than you can use them. For instance, I've found that the monthly arrivals are simply too frequent for my lifestyle. Instead of trying out each item and getting the most bang for my buck, they wind up growing into a small sample store under my bathroom counter.
If you like the idea of a goodie box curated by experts but don't want to turn into a sample hoarder, you might want to look into , the popular service that delivers members a box every season.
In other words, instead of once a month, you'll get a box delivered four times a year. And instead of small samples, you'll receive full-sized options. Instead of solely beauty products, you'll find a more seasonally specific collection of goodies ranging from hair care to accessories like scarves.
In terms of cost, you might like the once-every-three-months charge versus the commitment of every single month.
For me, the appeal is mostly in the narrowing down to make things seasonally relevant and the opportunity to have fewer, but bigger-sized, things to try out. That way, I end up with fewer bottles to send to the landfill and don't have to quickly buy a full-sized version of the one thing I really did like in my box.
Granted, you'll get a more narrow exposure to new things than a monthly service that sends sample sizes like , but it all comes down to what fits your lifestyle and what value services like this bring to you.
If you want to try as many new beauty products as possible to optimize your routine, you'll likely love for a month. If you want a box of surprises less frequently that more specifically applies to the season, you'll probably love . And right now, you can get your first box for less using the code "INSIDER" at checkout.
Here's how works:

They recently sent me the winter FabFitFun box, and while I wasn't aware it was coming (so I couldn't be involved in any kind of customization process), I really liked the result even as a total surprise. The things that I didn't expect to like (such as pillow spray, usually ) were a good addition to those I was excited to try on sight (like ). The surprise and diversity helped me expand my horizons, and I now use both regularly, thanks to their full-size versions.
In my small apartment, I appreciate the lack of clutter compared to monthly services and can see the value in not having to run out to buy more of what I did like.
