Best websites for sampling beauty products

GlossyBox, Birchbox, and more

GlossyBox.com offers “an ideal way to test high-end products without visiting a department store.” Sign up for the service and each month you’ll receive a box containing five sample products from various luxury brands. ($21 monthly)

Goodebox.com provides a similar service, but sends out only products that the service has deemed eco-friendly. ($18 monthly)

Birchbox.com is “more of a mixed bag”—including items like stationery with the beauty products it sends out. ($10 monthly)

BeautyArmy.com asks each user to fill out a profile, then recommends a group of products to try. If nothing appeals, you can skip the service for the month and won’t be charged. ($12 monthly)

Ipsy.com employs a panel of beauty experts to send you “their new go-to cosmetics.” ($10 monthly)
