5 Popular Beauty Subscription Boxes in India
Subscription boxes are getting increasingly popular these days. I particularly love subscription boxes because it feels like a gift – from me….to me. There are so many subscription boxes to choose from – beauty, period, lingerie, men’s grooming, for kids, food , pets, etc. For those who are new to this concept,
What exactly is a Beauty Subscription Box?
Just like you subscribe to magazines, you can subscribe to beauty boxes. You can subscribe for a month, 3 months, 6 months or a year. Once you do so, you receive an assortment of beauty products to try from. It is generally an assortment of skincare, makeup, hair care etc. Some of them have questionnaires to know your preferences. Also, sometimes you get to choose between products.
Each month when my beauty subscription box arrives, I can’t hide my excitement in un-boxing it! Though there are a lot of beauty subscription boxes, in this post, I have compiled a list of the five most popular ones in India –
Fab Bag is one of the most popular beauty subscription boxes. I had first subscribed to Fab Bag way back in the years when it was known as Vellvette Box. When you subscribe, you are required to fill a questionnaire about your skin type, skin tone, hair and skin concerns etc, so that they can accordingly send you a assorted set of products. Apart from that, sometimes you also get to choose a product in your bag – maybe a lipstick or a eye shadow shade for that month. However, most of the time, what you get in the bag remains a surprise till you get the bag. They earlier had a Men’s Bag also, but discontinued it.
How much does it cost – Rs 599 for 1 month

Zo Bag – relatively new, is a subscription Box by Zotezo, an online store for health care, personal care, makeup and beauty products. This is again a monthly subscription box, wherein you get an assorted set of products. However, when you are placing an order, you can see what is there in the bag, so you can decide whether you want to buy that bag or not. They also have the concept of a mini bag, wherein you get fewer products for a lesser cost.
