5 Ways Beauty Subscriptions Save You Time And Money

If you love makeup and beauty items, but hate spending tons of money trying to figure out which products are best for you, try a beauty subscription! By paying an estimated amount each month, you are sent multiple products without having to go into the store or drop a portion of your new paycheck. For example, my subscription to Ipsy is only $10 per month, and I get four sample-size products and one full-size product. There are so many benefits of subscribing to a monthly beauty package that you probably didn't think of at first.

Here are five ways a beauty subscription will save your time and money you can spend elsewhere!

1. Sample-size products let you try without waste.

Who doesn't love samples? Sample products allow you to try a new product without buying the full-size or wasting what you don't end up using. Plus, the amount of sample brand name items you'll get versus the actual cost of those items is next to nothing when it comes as a subscription package.

2. You'll discover new brands.

Okay. Maybe you're a stickler for MAC or Too Faced, but discovering new brands can be a lot of fun! Who knows? Maybe you'll find your new favorite brand of nail polish or fall in love with a blush you've never tried before.

3. Smaller products mean space and travel-friendly.

Typically when you buy a lot of products, you waste a lot of space trying to store all of them. When products are smaller, you'll be able to fit more of them in half of the space. Plus, your products will be travel-friendly for when you're on your next getaway. Never settle for the drugstore travel section again!

4. No more wandering around stores and becoming lost.

This is more so geared for in-store shoppers who may spend hours in Sephora figuring out what to buy next, or which product will work for them. Although asking for help is totally fine, a subscription can help pinpoint items that fit your needs best. By asking you questions based on your lifestyle and preferences, you can receive items meant for you without having to scour a store. Spend your time doing other things rather than stressing over your next purchase.

5. It's like a monthly present to yourself.

Who doesn't love receiving a little package with goodies inside each month? A subscription is like a monthly gift to yourself because you deserve it! A bit of pampering and experimentation goes a long way when you work so hard. Plus, chances are you'll forget about it until it arrives (making it even more exciting)!
