Australian beauty boxes you need to know about 2021
We’ve pulled together a list of our favourite beauty subscription boxes you should try. Treat yourself.
We’re reader-supported and may be paid when you visit links to partner sites. We don’t compare all products in the market, but we’re working on it!
While beauty subscription boxes aren’t exactly a new concept, there are still many people out there that still haven’t tried them. And we’re here to tell you that you absolutely should give these goodie boxes a go.
How many times have you been bored by the same blush or mascara and just stopped using it halfway through? Yes, we have too. But with beauty subscription boxes, there are always plenty of new treats to be excited by, and they’re delivered to your door every month (or three months for some). Plus, the products are often smaller or sample size, so you’ll use and finish them before you have a chance to get bored.
There are plenty of beautifully curated and affordable beauty box options that make great presents for yourself or gifts for friends too. Here are our favourite boxes that you need to know about.
Bellabox is a beauty box favourite because it's one of the most affordable. Although most of the products are only sample size, the box is only $20 a month – which is pretty good value.
Instead of focusing on specific areas of beauty, bellabox looks for the new, innovative and cult-favourite products. Each box can contain haircare, makeup or skincare. There's always a mix! This is a great way to discover new products and try out the cult picks you may not have had a chance to test. They also make great gifts.

Number of products: 5 or more
