Are Beauty Boxes Worth Having?

You'd be lying if you said beauty boxes haven't taken the blogging world by storm. These little boxes have been showing up everywhere and with their popularity only growing, more of us beauty lovers are wondering if they are really worth it.

I've had a Glossy Box Subscription for just under a year and I have received many amazing products, some that I'd never even heard of. I decided to sign up to a beauty box subscription as I wanted to try out new products and I have discovered so many things that I wouldn't have tried or would have completely dismissed in the first place as they were out of my price range.

Although its great to be sent new beauty products each month, it can get a little bit pricey. A Glossy Box is £10 plus £3 postage which is amazing considering the selection of products you receive but what if you won't use them? There's no denying you get a lot for your money but its very easy to end up with boxes of products you will never use. For people who know exactly what products they want, a subscription box would be a waste of money. I always giveaway the unopened products that I won't use to my sister or to friends, I feel less wasteful that way.

The biggest negative I have found is that as you never know what you will receive you can end up with a lot of the same products. I recently cancelled my glossy box for several reasons, the main one being that I had been subscribed for so long that I was starting to receive extremely similar products. Over the year I had been given 3 highlighters, which is great for someone who regularly use's them but I'm still getting through the first one.

The aim of this piece isn't to bad mouth beauty boxes, after all they are a good idea and a nice surprise every month. I had come to the point where I was bored with them and I didn't feel like I was getting a bargain anymore. For people who want to grow their beauty product collection they are great but for me they just aren't worth it

What do you think about beauty boxes? Do you love them or do you think they are a waste of money?

Thanks for reading!
