There’s no denying that we have an insatiable appetite for hair products. And that’s okay, there are definitely more harmful things to be addicted to, right? One of the most genius innovations in the hair and beauty sector in recent years is the introduction of hair and beauty boxes, which provide product enthusiasts with carefully curated boxes of samples from different brands, granting the perfect opportunity for us to ‘try before we buy’ . There are amazing companies who operate successful beauty box brands Stateside such as Curlbox and Curlkit, but there are also a few brands based this side of the pond that provide boxes for a greatly under-served UK market. Check out the following:
This monthly product discovery box delivers the very best offerings for those with kinky, curly and wavy hair textures. Previous boxes have included staple favourites from much-loved brands such as Palmers, Creme of Nature, ASIAM and Cantu, but they also include hard to source finds such as Mielle Organics and Andre Walker. Boxes cost £20 per month, and we love the fact that they are categorised according to age, and consist of the Qween Box, the Tween Box and Mini-Me Box. For further details visit here.
Vertue Box is a beauty subscription box with a difference – all products featured are clean, green and cruelty-free. The company was founded by Laila Sanderson, who after being diagnosed with an auto-immune disorder decided to lead a healthier and greener lifestyle. Boxes include products from acclaimed cult brands such as Anita Brand, Trepadora Indigenous Beauty and Alchemy Oils to name a few. The company offers a trial box for £25, and after that you can pay a bi-monthly subscription for £37. Click here for further details.
