Whether it is untwisting a new lipstick or the feel of a brand new brush, the satisfaction of opening an un-touched piece of make-up is hard to match.
So what if we told you that you could enjoy that feeling every single month?
Plus, if your inner child jumps out every time anyone reveals they have a surprise for you, re-create the buzz for yourself!
If you haven't already invested in a monthly beauty box, there is no better time to start than now.
Treat yourself to a surprise you know you'll love every month - because can never have too many beauty products - right?
And if you've got a family member, friend or loved-one who is obsessed with all things beauty, beauty subscription boxes make great gifts! Many of the boxes below have flexible subscriptions ranging from one to 12 months.
Depending on how much you can afford or how generous you are feeling, you could get a gift that keeps on giving. It is also a great way to spread the cost of a special occasion like birthdays or Christmas because the monthly subscription is often more affordable.
We have omitted some of the most famous boxes because we've read unfavourable reviews. Thankfully there are still loads to choose from, just take a look of our edit below.
The most difficult choice is which one you'll invest in rather than if....
Best Beauty Boxes: Which one will you choose?

Glossybox Beauty Box

Each month you'll get five products with at least two full-size. Brands include: Clarins, MUA and other up-and-coming cosmetics newbies.
Friction Free Shaving Beauty Box
Although this box is a little more niche we still think it is a great subscription to buy into. Friction Free is the first razor delivery service and it means that you'll never have to worry about a blunt, over-used razor ever again! Prices start from just £5 with free postage and will get you a razor plus four refill blades a month.

The Love Me Beauty Box is a little different to others out there because you get to hand pick what items you would like. This is great if you already know what products and brands work for you and want a way to buy them with a discount. With this beauty box you hand select the products you would like. Prices start from £10 a month or less if you subscribe for more months upfront.
The Pip Box
This beauty box stands out as it is full off 100 per cent cruelty free and vegan friendly products. Prices start from £13.50 and will get you five beauty treats a month. The story behind the name of this box is also super sweet. It is named after the founder's dog Pippa, who was the inspiration for the box being totally cruelty free. 50p from every box is also donated to an animal friendly charity, so this box really will make you feel like you are playing your part in the cruelty free movement.
So which one are you tempted by? We kind of want them all...
