With the success of monthly subscription boxes and Korean skincare boxes, comes a special breed of monthly subscription box, Essentielle Beauty. This one is special because it only comes with high end Korean beauty companies. There are five different boxes you can subscribe to so far. There is the simple skincare box, deluxe skincare box, makeup box, mystery box and the starter box. She will begin to take orders for international subscriptions in June 2015, though individual boxes can be ordered for international shipping. First, you fill out a profile of your skin and makeup wants and needs.
The simple skincare box runs: $39 a month, 3 months for $38 a month, 6 months for $37.34 and 12 months for $35.34. For this box she has had her staff travel around, even to Korea, to find the best of the best to put in this box. They are tested out to see which work well. Divided by profile type and the box will contains a mix of cutting edge and traditional products. Occasionally a lipstick or other product will be thrown in. Normal skin, dry and aging skin, combination, troubled and oily skin. Shipping charges for US are $5 per box on all subscriptions longer than one month. For one month and international orders extra shipping charges apply.
The deluxe skincare box is: $55 a month, 3 months for $55 a month, 6 months for $53.84 and 12 months for $52.00. This box is for those who are willing to pay for premium products and brands. Some products and ingredients cost more, may have patented or more complex products. It is a more expensive box but well worth it. Sometimes this box may only contain one or two products and at times she may throw in a lipstick for a fun item. Shipping is free for a one month trial subscription. This box is great for those with normal skin, dry skin, combination, aging, troubled or oily skin.
The makeup box runs: $39 a month, 3 months for $38 a month, 6 months for $36.67 and $35.84 for 12 months. This box is all cosmetics and no skincare. She might throw in a sample or two occasionally. Lipsticks, eye shadows, blush, eyeliners, mascara and more are all included in this box. Not all in each month though. This box only contains full size products. She will strive to create complete looks or season sensitive collections. For one month and international orders extra shipping charges apply.
The mystery box runs $36 a month, 3 months for $36 a month, 6 months for $35.34 and 12 months for $35 a month. The mystery box is a mix of everything. You get skincare and makeup in the box. In each box she aims to have a new “must have” discovery. For one month and international orders extra shipping charges apply.
The starter box is $29 a month, 3 months for $29 a month, 6 months for $28 a month and 12 months for $27 a month. This option is a great way to try Essentielle Beauty. Filled each month with new and fun products, it is a great way to find new and fun luxurious items that you will love. For one month and international orders extra shipping charges apply.
I was able to try out a Mystery Box. In it I received the following: Rice Water Toner, Privia Peeling Gel Mask, Mung Bean Mask, bright lipstick and serum and lotion. I feel that this was definitely a good amount of product in the box for what she charges for the monthly premium. I tried out the products and liked them a lot. Korean products are a little different than American ones, focusing on different issues than ours. I like the Peeling Gel and the Mung Mask a lot.
What is so nice about this subscription service is that there are a nice variety of boxes to choose from. And in each of these boxes there are a good number of products. I spoke with the founder of Essentielle Beauty and she wants to include only the finest Korean beauty products on the market. Sometimes her boxes may only include one to two products but these are very expensive products. She chooses only the finest skincare and makeup products available from Korea. The owner and founder, Megan Jones, has told me that she is now expanding outside of Korean products with some products from Switzerland and other countries in Europe, still keeping up with the high end theme of course. She is purchasing perfumes and other lovely products that are hard to find. She also has a lot of the products available for purchase on her website. So, if you like the products you area able to purchase them. And the prices are very reasonable.
