Subscription boxes and Beauty Sample Sites are all the rage right now and for good reason! These boxes are a great way to try out new products without spending a ton of money. Generally speaking, subscription boxes and beauty sample sites cost a set amount of money each month or quarter, and you’ll receive an assortment of products to test out. Subscription boxes and beauty sample sites exist for women, men, and children and they make great gifts! Subscription shopping sites are similar, except instead of receiving samples each month you’ll receive one new product of your choice for a set fee.
