The Philippines has no shortage of awesome beauty finds, but if there's anything we've been missing for a while, it would be beauty subscription boxes. For years now, we've been living vicariously through those in the US, who have their Birchbox, Ipsy, and Allure Beauty Box to look forward to every month. These boxes contain an array of samples from different brands (including ones you've never thought of trying), giving you the opportunity to try promising products and potentially find a new holy grail. It's also one of the best ways to test luxurious, often-expensive products sans the commitment and a huge hole in your pocket!
Simply put, there's a lot to love about beauty boxes. So after years of an unexplained drought, we're happy to report that an exciting one has launched locally—and it's everything we've been looking for and more. Introducing, The Beauty Edit[ed] Box.
As cliché as it may sound, this beauty box is not your average one. That's because everything in it has been carefully chosen, containing some of the best premium beauty finds around. We're talking about products from Shiseido, La Mer, NARS, Jo Malone London, and many more!
What's more, all the inclusions are beauty editor-approved. They were curated by Nicole Limos-Morales, the former beauty editor and managing editor of Town and Country Philippines, who's now the content creator behind The Beauty Edit on Instagram. According to Nicole, the idea for the box was born out of her struggle in subscribing to ones overseas, and her desire to share products with friends and family. And if you ask us, it's the perfect idea especially for this socially-distant era.
For its debut release, The Beauty Edit[ed] Box contains seven travel-sized beauty samples and one full-sized product. It also comes with a complimentary clear pouch and an e-magazine with complete product information, expert tips, and exclusive discounts! Here's a sneak peek:
With a product lineup like that, you'd think that it would cost an arm and a leg. But here's the thing: It's actually a major steal. The collective value of the products is around 9,100 pesos, but with The Beauty Edit[ed] box, you can cop everything for only 3,800 pesos!
You can start ordering your own box on The Beauty Edit's website starting on March 8. Though it's not a monthly service just yet, more curated boxes will be coming our way soon!
