Some call these box by mail services "discovery retail" because a consumer is sent a sample to discover a new product that they can potentially like and purchase.
Great video article from Euro Monitor International (HBA Global Expo 2013 Recap – Beauty Box Subscription Programs) offers some user responses and types of services out there.
I was a Birchbox user for a year but unsubscribed when the subscription ran out because I felt the items in the box were not tailored to my preferences and because I was cutting down on beauty expenses.
Some of the beauty box subscription programs I'm aware of are:
- QVC's Test Tube
- Beauty Bar's Sample Society
- Sephora Favorites gift sets
- Beauty Army
- TotalBeauty Collections
You can perform a search on Google using "beauty box" or "beauty collection set" and see what results turn up that match your needs.
