Essence Beauty Box |November

Beauty/ Beauty Subscriptions
Beauty Boxes are nothing new, but more and more of them are popping up lately. Everyone wants in on them and frankly they are a nice service for us beauty loving gals.  I have long been on board with the concept of beauty subscription boxes, and over the years have subscribed to more than I should admit. The fact is beauty box subscriptions feeds my product junkie needs while saving my bank account. I like to test the waters with new things, but constantly buying at full size can often be a fail if the product doesn’t work out. You don’t want to see the failed product wasteland under my bathroom sink.  The only thing worse than wasted product, is wasted money.

Subscription boxes solve that problem and change the way we shop. Subscription boxes allow consumers to test the waters of new products without the cost commitments of purchasing outright.  I can say I have discovered some great products through these boxes, and they are a nice surprise to look forward to each month. 
November Essence Beauty BoxESSENCE magazine is the latest company to jump into the subscription box arena launching a monthly beauty box curated with women of color in mind. Each month subscribers will receive a box curated by ESSENCE beauty experts containing 6 luxe samples.

                                                                    The November ESSENCE Beauty Box

Each month a nicely packaged offering lands at your door in an artful cardboard box. Inside you will find the months samples and a pamphlet that describes each item with commentary and tips from the ESSENCE curators. I checked out the full size offerings of each item in this box and can tell you even with the sizes technically being samples we have more than $15 of value here.  

Let’s take a closer look at what was inside the November box;

(full size 16 oz. retails for $4.49)

The November ESSENCE Beauty Box is a winner in my book, I’m pleased with each item and the sizes are truly deluxe samples. This is the second box and so far ESSENCE is hitting the mark with this offering. Now is the perfect time to secure a subscription for yourself or even one for a gift.
