Our Top Subscription Box Picks From USA, Korea and UK

Subscription boxes of all varieties such as gourmet foods, makeup and beauty items, apparel and accessories etc are always a delight to have—it’s almost like a present at your mailbox/doorstep every month, especially when you least expect it or if you’re having a bad day.

If you’re located in a country where the subscription box  trend hasn’t caught on yet, or if you’re not a fan of some of the choices in the boxes you’ve been getting, here’s what we found from USA, Korea and UK that we think you might like!

Scentbird

Want to try a scent out before you make it your signature? Scentbird allows you to pick out a fragrance of your choice among its 450+ designer and niche options every month. The best part is that it comes in a chic reusable bottle that you can bring in your purse for a scent refresh throughout the day (enough for 4 sprays everyday in a month). Scentbird’s subscription begins at USD14.95 a month and you can let your Boxer know when and if you would like to cancel your plan!

 

Petit Vour

blogpost_image_PetitVour

For vegan beauty lovers, it’s probably an understatement to say that beauty subscription boxes that offer cruelty-free, organic, all-natural products are almost impossible to find. Which is exactly why Petit Vour is the #1 vegan beauty box in our books. At USD15 a month, you can get a box filled with four personalized beauty miniatures that are non-toxic, cruelty-free, vegan, and ethically-made.

 

Julep Maven

blogpost_image_JulepMavenBox

If you’re a fan of Julep Maven’s tinted lip oil treatments and creme-to-powder blush sticks, go for the beauty brand’s customisable subscription boxes. Julep Maven lets you pick what you would love to try out from the monthly new collections, from the Bare Face Cleansing Oil to funky-coloured lip glosses. You can swap a product or change a colour preference in your box – all for USD24.99.

 

Boxycharm

blogpost_image_BoxyCharm

If we’re talking about the best beauty boxes that are worth every cent, Boxycharm takes the top spot for its affordable USD21 boxes that offer 4 to 5 full sized, luxury beauty items. For a better idea of what you can receive, July’s box had items such as OFRA Professional Magnetic Palette, Mally Beauty Rounded Blender Brush or Evercolor Starlight Waterproof Eyeliner Single, Noyah Lip Gloss, and PYT Hair Oil Treatment – all worth between USD15-59 each. Talk about a major beauty steal!

 

Allure Beauty Box

blogpost_image_Allure_BeautyBox

But if you prefer beauty brands that have been around for a while and new labels that will make it big in the market, Allure’s Beauty Box might be up your alley. Featuring editor’s picks that include deluxe, full-sized items from brands such as Estée Lauder, Glamglow, Clinique, Smashbox, and La Mer, Allure Beauty Box costs USD15 a pop if you’re interested.

 

Glossybox

Glossybox

Get five surprise luxury beauty products each month from GLOSSYBOX with a subscription. The best part about GLOSSYBOX is that you only receive hair, skincare, beauty and perfume sample-sized products from well known luxury and up-and-coming niche brands such as OleHenriksen, Essie, Fresh, Tarte, Benefit, GlamGlow, OPI, Burberry and more. Another perk is the prettily-packaged makeup boxes and expert beauty tips within each box on how to make the most of the samples you receive.

You can choose to get the 6-month plan for USD 126 (paid upfront); the monthly plan at USD 21 per month; or the 12-month plan at USD 222 (USD 18.5 per month). Our Boxers are able to ship to you these pretty boxes every month if you’d like, or you can also ShopandBox the box of the month.

 

Ipsy

Ipsy

The brainchild of famous YouTube makeup artist and entrepreneur Michelle Phan, Ipsy provides you with personalized “Glam Bags” that cost USD 10 each month based on a beauty quiz that you take in order for them to tailor each product based on your needs. Once you become a member, you can also leave product reviews so that you can get more points for you to redeem beauty items; or you can cash in your points to get a bonus in your next Glam Bag. Once you receive your Glam Bag, you can follow along at home with our stylist-created looks online and get beauty tips and tricks!

You can choose the monthly subscription for USD 10 each month (free cancellation at any time!) or go for the annual subscription at USD 110 a year (you get one free month).

 

BirchBox – Men

Birchbox-men

Birchbox Men is the ideal subscription box for gentlemen out there who enjoy grooming and dressing up smartly. For USD 20 a month or USD 195 annually (two months free), you can get a box each month featuring a range of “top-shelf grooming samples—from heritage shave creams to woodsy cologne—plus a full-size product like a gadget, bar tool, or stylish accessory.” Like Ipsy, you will fill out the Grooming Profile after signing up to have products tailored to suit your personal style/needs.

 

Graze

Memebox is a Korean non-subscription one-time box service that provides you with curated full-sized skincare and cosmetics brands from Korea. If you’re a fan of all beauty items made in Korea, you’d love brands including Etude House, Berrisom, Banila Co., Benton, PeriPera, Holika Holika, Innisfree and more. Check out their XO Memebox category where you can find makeup collaborations with Nylon, MakeUpByEvon, Pony—mostly high-quality trendsetting products. Memebox ships to South Korea and the USA as well, so our Boxers from both countries are able to ship you this curated package if you like.

 

Power Up Box

Geek and gamer subscription boxes are nothing new these days, but Power Up Box is a particularly exciting and recent one. There are two options you can choose from: the Premium Box (USD 29.95) or Deluxe box (USD 19.95). The Premium box comes with 6-9 hand-picked items plus a monthly T-shirt with a value of up to USD 70; whereas the Deluxe comes with 4-6 hand-picked items plus a monthly T-shirt with a value of up to USD 50. You can find a mix of Funko products, comic books, bags and more in their boxes.

Here’s how you can ShopandBox a subscription box:

  1. Add a subscription package into your Order as an item
  2. ShopandBox will assign you the most appropriate Boxer to help with your Order
  3. Every month, the same assigned Boxer will let you know when your next subscription has arrived and is ready for shipping
  4. Simply log in to the ShopandBox site and submit a new Order
  5. Your assigned Boxer will ship your monthly box to you

      Hi Winnie! Thanks for your enquiry, Ipsy looks to be under 500g. 3 day express shipping from the US to Spore is around $15 USD for 500g. When you put through an order, your Boxer will be able to give you a more accurate quote especially if you decide to add other items into your box to make full use of your international shipping fee. Your Boxer can shop across different stores for you and no payment taken till you’re happy, so have fun!

    Hello 🙂 I really would like to try the memebox! The korean beauty products always look interesting and I love to read about korean “beauty secrets” or watch YouTube videos of people using their products but since I live in Germany I don’t have the chance to try something. So the box would be a good idea because I could try some korean brands and their products without requiring a specific product.
    Thanking you in anticipation! ^-^

      Hi Sara, Wwth ShopandBox, you pay what the items cost (no markup), a service fee (10-14% on cost of items) and international shipping. Please visit our rates page (www.shopandbox.com/v2/rates) to get an estimate. You can also submit a non-obligation order to get a quote and have a chat to one of our Boxers (Personal Shoppers). We do partner up with DHL where shipping is charged at a minimum of 500g and an IPSY bag is approx 200-300g so you’ll be able to add other items into your box at no extra international shipping cost.
