INSIDER Beauty Tuesday: Beauty subscription, without the commitment


Our favourite monthly beauty treat boxes, now with less ball and chain

We see the images every month, scrolling through your Instagram feed you're bound to have spot a few snaps of what landed on countless ladies' doormats in beautifully wrapped packaging and felt a slight pang of jealously over what's inside. 

The problem is, maybe you've got commitment (or purse) issues and signing up for a year, or even three months, is just too much for you - in every sense!

Well you'll be glad to hear that both Glossybox and Chic Treat Club are offering rolling subscriptions, meaning you can opt in or out whenever takes your fancy. When you're feeling particularly flush, or just in need of a to-me-from-me pick me up you don't need to sign your life away and can enjoy your treats minus the guilt!

Chic Treat Club offers five exclusive (to it's members) beauty bits in their monthly boxes for €16.95 including delivery couriered to your door. Past boxes have seen treats from Physician's Formula, P20, HD Brows, NYX and Cath Kidston.

Another option from one of the originals is the Glossybox, this one comes from the UK and again works out around €17 once you add delivery and convert from Sterling. 

Expect brands like Becca, Eyeko, Gosh Cosmetics, Nib + Fab and Olay, five sample sizes in your monthly box.

You might find a new beauty must-have you'd never have known about if a sample wasn't sent through your letterbox or maybe you'll decide you'd rather go out to the beauty hall and choose your own goodies.  Either way, with the opt out options there's not much to lose!
