7 summer beauty boxes you should invest in before you spend all your money on products you’re unfamiliar with

There are a million reasons to love the beauty products that arrive in the summertime. From bronzer to BB cream to face masks, we’re blessed with a variety of sun-friendly items. If you haven’t tried summer beauty boxes before, 2017 is your year. Rather than spending all your money in one fell swoop on products that you know nothing about, you can save some money and sample a whole bundle of makeup and cosmetics. And there’s no catch.

All you have to do is sign up and choose which box works best for you. Opting in to receive a beauty box each month also ensures that you’ll never get bored with your makeup routine. So don’t waste anymore time. Get your summer beauty box and get your glow on.

Here are seven summer beauty boxes you should set your sights on.

You can switch interests at any time and there’s always free shipping. Your whole summer is about to change for the better.



Perfume is one of the most expensive beauty products out there today.

You can choose from all the top name brands, so you can try just about everything before you decide on your signature scent. You’d be crazy not to try it out.
