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.


1. bellabox

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.

Price: $19.95 per month

Number of products: 5 or more

Full size: No, mostly sample size

2. Oz Hair & Beauty

Aussie beauty retailer, Oz Hair & Beauty offers a number of different beauty boxes, dependent on the exact concerns of your skin and hair.

That's right, the guesswork is taken out and you're provided with full size products, depending on whether you suffer from dry and damager hair, oil skin, dry skin and so forth. The popular beauty brands that you can expect to find in these boxes include Olaplex, Aspect, Cosmedix and more.

Price: Varies each box, prices start at $163.59

Number of products: 3 or more

Full size: Yes

3. Nourished Life Natural Beauty Box

Nourished Life is an all-natural and non-toxic beauty store and it has its very own beauty subscription box. In line with the ethos of this store, all the products in this box are natural, non-toxic and cruelty free.

This subscription box offers somewhere between 4-7 items, valued at over $40 each month. Given the affordable price tag, we think this subscription offers very good value. And it's an easy way to discover all the new and cult products on Nourished Life.

Price: From $25 per month

Number of products: 4-7

Full size: No. All sample size.

4. 'tis the

The 'tis the box is unlike any other on the market - it has a retail value return on each box of four times the subscription price! The brand focuses on seasonal boxes, once every quarter. They are dedicated to targeting the health, beauty and lifestyle desires of Australian women - and you get seven full-sized products to enjoy.

What's more, $1 from the sale of every box will benefit Koala Kids Foundation - an organisation that helps the lives of children and young people undergoing cancer treatment.

Price: $79.95 per quarter

Number of products: 7

Full size: All products are full-sized

5. Wanderess Beauty

The Wanderess Beauty subscription box is about discovering natural beauty. Each box contains 100% natural, non-toxic and ethical, beauty, grooming and wellness products.

Every month, the box will explore a different theme like bronzing or haircare. Many of the products are small sample sizes but there are often a few full size products in the box making it well worth your money. The finder staff have tried out this box and it has definitely helped us discover some of our favourite beauty products, like this Jane Iredale cheek tint for example.

Price: $59 per month (less if you bulk order)

Number of products: 4-5

Full size: Some products are full size, maybe 1-2 per box.

6. Nudie Glow

This subscription gives you five Korean face masks delivered every three months. It's the perfect introduction into the world of Korean beauty products, and it's also a great present for anyone who loves face masks.

Each mask included in the quarterly box is tested and curated by the team at Nudie Glow, so you only get the best.

Price: $25 per quarter

Number of products: 5

Full size: All full size, single-use masks.

7. Peony Parcel

Peony Parcel is different from all the other beauty boxes because this box only contains full size products. Peony is also more of a "wellness" box because it can also contain treats like candles or stationery in addition to beauty products.

The pieces included are designed to add a little luxury into your routine. The brands are premium and the products are pretty. This one makes a great gift for a friend or for yourself.

Price: $69.95 every three months

Number of products: 5-7

Full size: All full size products
