Mystery post. Does it make your top 10 list? While the best kind used to be Valentine’s day cards and surprise flower deliveries, there’s a new mailed mystery about town – beauty boxes. Gift’s you didn’t know you were going to receive, well you kinda knew, but you didn’t know-know… and that’s got to be the best kind of not knowing ‘eh. It’s like giving your other half a brief – white gold, sparkly and a 16inch chain… Asian cuisine, seated and a seller of mochi balls. You want to be surprised, but you don’t want to be surprise-surprised. A surprise that’s in your natural beauty ball park – now that’s one to get excited about.
Which is why dear friend, below I have a line-up of the 8 best beauty boxes for lovers of all things natural. We’ve got organic, natural and vegan ticked off. We’ve got beauty, skincare and make-up ticked off. We’ve got French beauty, cult finds and luxury unknowns ticked off.
You know there’s just one thing left for you to do right? You got it. Get your tick stamp strategically hovered and ready…
