The 21 Best Beauty Boxes for Full-Size Makeup, Skincare, & Haircare
We review a ton of subscriptions here at My Subscription Addiction. Do you know what still makes us giddy? A full-size product. Sure, samples and travel-sized items are a great way to try out new products for a short time. But what if you are looking for something a little more… serious?
If you’re ready to commit, the following boxes generally contain all or mostly full-size beauty products. Check out the wide variety of full-size items you can get (usually for an awesome value), from serums and scrubs to mascara and lipstick!
