7 reasons why beauty box subscriptions suck!


They aren't specialized to your preferences

Most beauty box subscriptions offer one-size-fits-all products, regardless of your skin type or hair texture. Often, the products you received may not be suited to you.

I save serious money

Vs. Custom-tailored to YOU

With the Essentials Club by Beauty by Earth, you're the one that picks exactly what goes in your box. So it's perfectly tailored to your skin tone, skincare regimes, likes, wants, and needs.


They're filled with low-quality, expiring products

Many beauty boxes include synthetic fragrances, parabens, sulfates, and other potentially harmful ingredients in their products, which can irritate your skin and eyes.

Vs. High-quality, organic, plant-based ingredients

The Essentials Club, on the other hand, offers only the hottest clean skincare on the market. You'll enjoy the best natural ingredients, most of which are certified organic, vegan, and all are cruelty-free! That's a subscription service we can get behind!


End up with products you don't want or need

Most of us don't need 10 different lipsticks or 17 tiny bottles of eye cream. With a beauty box subscription, you're stuck with whatever the subscription sends you.

VS. Getting Exactly what you want

Beauty by Earth's subscription box lets you be the master of your beauty box destiny. No matter what your penchant is, you can get your perfect monthly skincare essentials with ease.


Products are tiny samples

Most beauty boxes are filled with samples and minis, instead of full-sized products. You're likely to get sample sizes or travel-sized items instead of the larger bottles or tubes that you were expecting.

Free Shipping every time

Vs. Best-Selling Products

Beauty by Earth believes you deserve to enjoy your products in their entirety and not just as a tease. Your Essential Club box will be filled with full-sized items.


There's never anything new in the boxes

Most beauty boxes are filled with the same products month after month. This means you could potentially be receiving the same items over and over again, which truly blows if you're a beauty enthusiast like me.

The Essentials Club - Swap Anything Anytime

Vs. Trying New Things Whenever You Like

You can easily swap products out when you're tired of them or are ready to try something new. This means every new box is a new opportunity to explore.


Customer service is terrible 

Nothing is worse than bad customer service. You don't want to be stuck with a horrible product that you can't return or exchange - because the subscription boxes don't offer that option. You get what you get. Period.

Fully Flexible

Vs. 100% Happiness Guarantee 😍

The Essentials Club return policy is straightforward and easy to understand: 100% Happiness guarantee. If you're unhappy with your products within 60 days of receiving them, BBE will take them back—no questions asked.


The Products are crazy overpriced

You've probably seen beauty boxes for sale for upwards of $50 or more. That's a lot of money to drop on something that might not even be worth it! Plus, a lot of the products in these pricey boxes are samples and minis — so you're getting less bang for your buck.


Vs. a deal that's so good it feels like stealing

The Essentials Club isn't like those other beauty subscription boxes. These beauties are truly high-quality products, environmentally conscious, with a great value for your money. They're overflowing with natural ingredients from Aloe Vera to Shea Butter and always certified cruelty-free. Better still, they come at a great price. This box's retail price is up to 55% more than what you pay at checkout.

With the E.C., I've tried the eye cream, Vitamin C cream, face wash, and sea salt texturizer and have loved all of them! 🥰 I love that I can try a full-size product at a crazy discount and can switch it out easily for something else.

I love that I get my self tanners at 55% retail prices and I can skip or swap anytime I don't need a refill. It makes my busy life just a little bit simplier which is for me a big win! I was a tanner subscriber before but this is so much better!

I started with the Triple Threat box (3 products) but I loved the surprise freebie included in my box so much I upped my subscription to the Quad Squad (4-product) and haven't looked back! I'm saving $90 🎉 dollars a month! Holla!

I love the flexibility of this subscription. I like to try different products but I wouldn't normally do that with a subscription. With the Essen. club, I can try all diff kinds of products at a huge discount without having to commit long-term. Apparently, I like to change things up 🤣 🙋‍♀️

Best self tanner on the market! I'm enjoying have the tanner family now (body, face, and serum self tanners) as part of my routine. It was a bit too pricey for me to justify it in the past, but with this new subscription, I was like, "why the heck not?"

When I first bought the peppermint tea tree body wash, I am ashamed to say I gave it a bad review. I had said it made my skin feel "squeaky", whatever that means. I'm on my 9th bottle now and I love, it - it's all I use. My husband has mild diabetes and he uses this and loves it. No more itches. A little goes a long way . Makes the privates feel like they've had a York Peppermint Patty. I know, TMI , but true! Will continue to buy. I'm so spoiled!

This superfruits face wash is one of my favorite products. I normally find that I get more product than I need, but this subscription lets me skip or swap products really easily. For me, that's a big bonus considering I'm already saving like $51 on my skincare.

I was so excited when I heard BBE was launching the Essentials Club! I am a lifelong fan of the vitamin C line and now I'm saving close to $50 everytime I need a refill. The swapping product feature is prob my favorite. I'm going to a wedding in 3 weeks, so I swapped my moisturizer for a body scrub to get my legs looking legit.
