The niche box: Glowing Beets
The new kid in town: Esthoriabox
Box from shops: Botanika by Alice & White, LoveLula, Naturisimo and The Detox Market
Green beauty shops also offer a curated box of goodies, from brands they are stocking. Here are 4 of them.
Botanika by Alice & White: Limited edition. Beautifully wrapped with a little skincare menu sheet, Botanika by eco-luxe shop Alice & White, features a lovely selection of 5-6 deluxe samples, but full-sizes can pop in as well, as pictured (here). Shipping is free for Sweden, but they ship internationally. Customer service is amazing.
Lovelula Beauty box: Lovelula has one of the widest brand selection, so for £12.50, you have the possibility to discover many new brands. (international options available)
Naturisimo Discovery box: On several occasions, Naturismo sells a cute discovery box (see the content of the radiance box here) for an affordable price. I’ve ordered a few of them, and I was really happy, as they were a good value for money. Subscribe to their newsletter to be informed for the upcoming one. Shipping internationally.
The Detox Market : For special occasions, The Detox market also offers a fantastic box. Right now, it’s The Detox Your Beauty Spring Box (in collaboration with Café gratitude). You get 8 best-selling products valued at over $230, for the price of $129.
The vegan chic boxes : Petit Vour, LaRitzy and Lovegoodly
Petit Vour: It was one of the first boxes I subscribed to, but the international option was temporarily removed. Recognizable because of its super cute pink box, Petit Vour selects popular niche cruelty-free brands. Subscriptions options for US and Canada can be found (here), but it seems like there’s still a possibility to get it shipped elsewhere, you’d have to contact the PV team for more info.
LaRitzy: Starting at $14.99/month, you get a mix of full and travel sizes from natural and cruelty-free brands. Their previous boxes had a lovely mix of indie makeup and artisan skincare. The April box is already sold out, but suscriptions are still open for the next box.
Lovegoodly: For $39.95, you get 5-7 full-sized premium products, the April-May box is curated by Alicia Silverstone and every purchase supports a cause, and a part of the profits go to charity. For now, they only ship to the US but they plan on shipping internationally, so that’s exciting!
The pioneer one: VeganCuts
Launched in 2006, VeganCuts was the first green box I had heard about, and it’s still up to this day one of the most popular boxes. The Beauty Box costs $22.95 each month and offers a mix of samples from indie and more luxury vegan brands. Shipping internationally.
The wanderlust box: Pearlesque box
Pearlesque box introduces each month, fro $39.99, to a skincare brand coming from a specific geographic location. Featuring a new place every month, the past one one was about Malibu. Free shipping for US but international shipping available.
Artisan beauty boxes:
Kloverbox: For 25$, this US box is mixing cruelty-free organic beauty, accessories and snacks from indie brands.
Terra Bella Box: Handmade artisan bath and beauty brands. They also offer the possibility to order a “lite” version, featuring only 2-3 samples, which I think is a good idea if you feel like you’re collecting too many samples.
The Boxwalla: a cool concept offering 4 different boxes: beauty, food, literature and film. April’s beauty box ($49.95) is sold out, but you can order the June box. Free US shipping, but international shipping options are available. Worth checking out: their clever artisan map.
Artibox collective: a Canadian box, featuring new and upcoming local brands. They are no longer offering monthly boxes, and will instead work on themed gift boxes.
Amor Naturals: a very pretty quarterly box with handmade products in NYC for $19.99. Free shipping on your first order with the code (FREESHIP15).
The blogger boxes:
I mentionned the Organic Bunny box in my series for bloggers (here), and now Teri Temiyahira has launched a subscription box featuring her own makeup line (click here for more infos).

Is the Esthoria box only make up? I went to the site and it looks like three make up products in the box.
Hi Cindy! As far as I know, their first box is only makeup, and each box will feature one brand. You can always ask them if they plan on inclusing skincare in the future. xx
