We Did The Math & This Beauty Subscription Box Has The Best Value

You've heard of (and probably made) cost-per-wear calculations with your clothes. But what happens when we apply this sort of higher-level math to beauty?
In the realm of subscription boxes, few can compare in value to indie darling BoxyCharm, which, for a monthly fee of $21, delivers four to five full-size beauty products valued at $100 or more to your doorstep. These selects — from top-shelf brands like Butter London and Elemis — are all curated to fit your beauty profile, so you can discover the latest and greatest in cosmetics and skin care while still being confident that everything will suit you.

But don't just take our word for it. Ahead, have a look inside the July box, including "brands that either use natural ingredients or are eco-friendly, preservative-free, or cruelty-free," says founder and CEO Yosef Martin — and run the numbers yourself. (P.S. New subscribers can claim a free GlamGlow INSTAMUD Mask, a $42 value, using the code "BOXYPERKS" until July 31, 2019 at 11:59 p.m. or while supplies last.)

Mark our words: Beauty's next big comeback story will be the Return of Lip Gloss. But this time around, the formulas will be un-sticky and the finishes pearlescent, like these light-catching shades from Alamar.

You don't have to know the exact retail price to know that this Butter London palette is worth the subscription cost alone. (That's a six-pack of highly pigmented eyeshadows that deliver best-in-class color payoff, FYI.)
