Handmade Beauty Box
I am very picky about my subscription boxes and absolutely LOVE Handmade Beauty Box. Why? For $29 a month (shipping included), Handmade Beauty Box delivers all-inclusive sets of pre-measured ingredients and step-by-step instructions to make your own beauty products. So if mom loves making her own creams and lotions and serums, this is a great gift. There’s no shopping or planning needed – All you have to do is open the box and create! In addition to the enclosed instructions, how-to tutorial videos and ideas for recipe modifications are available for each project. My favorite is the Foot Scrub and Toner (stay tuned for my blog posts on these). Handmade Beauty Box projects use only the highest quality, wholesome ingredients such as essential oils, shea butter, pure pigments, beeswax, and salts. You can purchase boxes one at a time or sign up to have them delivered to mom on a monthly basis for three or 12 months in a row. Each Handmade Beauty Box project remains a surprise to the recipient until received.
