Beauty subscription services have been growing in India over the past few years. These beauty subscription websites have their unique line of brands and products to offer. Let’s learn a little more about these services.
What is beauty subscription?
Beauty subscription (aka beauty sampling process) is a monthly service where you receive beauty products selected by the website for trial and promotion purposes. These beauty boxes or bags follow certain theme every month according to which they send you some sample sized and some full sized products that you can try out for yourself.
Who benefits from these beauty subscriptions?
These subscriptions are a win-win deal for both, the buyer and the seller. As a buyer you are not only introduced to various beauty brands, you also get to test their samples before you invest in the full-sized product. For the sellers, these beauty boxes are a way to reach their target consumer by gaining their trust through their tested samples.
How much do I have to pay?
The subscription amount is different for each website. Each website offers a certain specialized range of products. You can check out the website and see which one suits you. However, with so many different beauty subscriptions out there it is a little confusing to select the best deal for yourself. So, here is a list of the most popular beauty subscriptions available in India and their price range.
