beauty box

The new monthly beauty box we’re raving about…

  • Marie Claire is supported by its audience. When you purchase through links on our site, we may earn commission on some of the items you choose to buy.
  • We’re obsessed with this huge beauty box – and at only £15 a month, you will be too.

    Beauty boxes have been completing our beauty lives since they first launched, who doesn’t love trying out new skincare and make-up products and paying a fraction for the pleasure?!

    Well, even for those sceptics out there, we’ve got some beauty news that’s going to make you weep with joy. Get your tissues ready because our beauty sister site, Powder, has just launched their newest Powder Beauty Drawer; it’s like a seasonal beauty box but SO. Much. More.

    From ELEMIS, to ghD, Smashbox and Organic Pharmacy, this beauty drawer is filled with amazing beauty products that have (drumroll) been selected to match your specific beauty needs. Whatever your skin type, hair type or product preferences the contents will be tailored to what’s going to work for you.

    And the best bit? You’ll get 8 amazing full and sample sized beauty products for just £15 a month, or £13.50 if you sign up for six months or a jaw-dropping £10 for a year. (That’s almost £1 a product!) Plus it’s delivered straight to your door, so you’ll get your beauty stash without even leaving the sofa. Sold? We definitely are…
