Our readers nominated their favorite subscription boxes,
There are a lot of different types of subscriptions out there today, but personal care boxes are definitely some of our favorites when it comes to saving time and money, and staying stocked up on the things we use in our day-to-day lives.
The results from our voting included some popular categories like razor & shaving subscriptions and period subscription boxes, as well as some more fanciful boxes that are more intended for self-care routines– so we're splitting this list in two.
Subscriptions that are mainly intended to keep you well-stocked on products you use daily are in the first part, while lifestyle boxes geared toward self-care and wellness are at the end.
