CHEAP & CHIC | I have been using the same brand moisturizer for over 10 years. Ditto eyeliner, mascara and toner. The facial cleanser I use? It’s been my staple since high school. It’s not that I’m not curious about other beauty products or uninterested in new things, but I am overwhelmed by what’s available these days. I need my own personal beauty editor, someone to curate the beauty aisles and find the best products for me. This is why I love the latest idea in e-commerce: the subscription beauty box.

What it is: Every month for less than the cost of a lipstick, subscribers receive a selection of four to six luxury-size samples—in other words full size travel samples—of handpicked beauty products. A box will include anything from skin care to makeup to hair products and beauty tools, all from well-known brands and emerging labels. Subscribers are asked for a beauty profile so samples can be chosen specifically to work with the recipient’s skin and beauty needs and style. The samples are beautifully packaged and sent by post—receiving one feels like having a beauty editor friend send you a gift in the mail each month.

Where to get them: Here’s a quick rundown of where you can get a beauty box delivered to you in Canada.

TOPBOX: For $10 a month, you receive four samples (Topbox, pictured above). If you love them, you can go back to the Topbox website and order more—they often have sales and promotions on the brands they sample. Visit topbox.ca

Luxe Box - Loose ButtonLUXE BOX: For $12 a month, you receive four to five samples in a personalized box. I received the latest one of these, which was curated by Flare magazine. In my box: a bottle of Moroccanoil Treatment, Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant, Sunbeam golden bronze highlighter by Benefit and Beautiful Body Balm and a bonus face and neck toning gel tester by Mèreadesso, a brand that’s new to me.  I already use Moroccanoil and was happy to receive more (the bottle I received would be worth $10 on the street) and have so far tried the Dermalogica Microfoliant and Benefit bronze highlighter. I didn’t know what to do with either product, but the enclosed information was very helpful and they are now both products I can’t live without.

UPDATE: Glymm and Glossy Box are no longer available in Canada.

    Subscribed to glymm for four boxes and never received Butter Nail Polish. Read their Facebook wall. They never send out the “good stuff”. Have terrible customer service and just don’t care.

    I cannot sign in for the Glossy Box, the Glymm box and the Luxe box. Nothing happens when I click … does that happen to you too? Do you know why and what to do? It worked for the Topbox. Thank you.

      Hello Gisele,
      That’s so strange. We have no trouble accessing these beauty box sites with the links featured here. I don’t know what the problem on your end could be. Maybe you should just email these companies directly and perhaps they can suggest what to do. Good luck. —eds

    Lol. Randomly found your website and was interested in Glymm. Googled them, and they apparently went out of business 4 days ago with no trace of their customers’ money!
