I have found so many Australian beauty sample boxes delivered straight to your door to try for no more than $15 every month! The idea behind a beauty sample box is to have a personalised selection of beauty products delivered to your door every month. You get to try the latest and greatest products, and often save a fortune as the items you receive usually far outweigh the price you pay for the subscription.
What a great deal, they all seem to supply amazing high-end, on-trend and specialist niche brands. Most of the services work the same way and cost about the same, so picking the right one for you may just come down to the brands they have.
