Busy schedules and overwhelming product selections are great reasons to think about giving a beauty subscription box this holiday season, whether to yourself or to a makeup and skin care enthusiast in your life.

Beauty boxes are a great innovation in our era of convenience, as they take away a lot of the guesswork in trying new products and allow you to receive a regular shipment of curated items in skin care, hair care and more. They can also be a more economical option to try new and trending products, considering the samples you get are often valued at much more than what you pay monthly for your subscription.

Read below to shop the list of beauty box subscriptions that allow you to cancel at any time.
