9 Beauty Subscription Boxes That’ll Turn You On to Your New Favorite Product
There’s no doubt that certain subscription boxes can be a genius time and money saver (we’re looking at you, Amazon Pantry). But sometimes, you just want to splurge on a monthly mailing that comes chock-full of face masks, indulgent bubble baths and creamy lipsticks that serve no purpose other than making you feel like a spoiled beauty editor. These beauty boxes are just the ticket.

Hairstory New Wash Club
Before you balk at the cost, consider this: New Wash is meant to replace your shampoo, conditioner and any masks you might use. Your first delivery comes with a 20-ounce pouch of New Wash (that lasts our beauty editor up to six months), a 20-ounce aluminum bottle with a nifty pump for easy use in the shower and a 3-ounce bottle for travel. Plus, you choose the frequency of delivery and will only get charged per shipment.
FaceTory Sheet Mask Subscription
Calling all fellow sheet mask lovers: You can now get a curated delivery of them sent to your door every month. And we're not just talking about your run-of-the-mill cotton masks here (though there's plenty of those, too). We're talking about ampoules and hydrogels and all of the latest and greatest straight from Korea.
