If you’ve seen influencers and bloggers unboxing videos over the years, you know that Sephora offers a great selection of product samples from the best brands. Now you can try them too!
I don’t know about you, but I love beauty subscription boxes. They allow you to save money on brand-name items if you’re not sure whether they’re really worth it just yet.
The Sephora Beauty Box is a great way to try out new beauty products on a budget. Some of which may become permanent additions to your cosmetic collection.
But how much is it? How do you know if it’s right for you? And most importantly: why should you sign up? We’ve got all the answers! Read on to learn everything about this popular beauty box.
How much is the Sephora Beauty Box?
Discovering new and cool beauty products can feel like a chore. It takes a lot of guesswork—from finding the right shade to taking a risk on items that may or may not be compatible with your skin type.
Of course we all have our favourites that will always have a space on our shelves, like a lipstick shade or a specific brand of foundation.
But what makes the beauty box special is that you can pick five items and try a variety of products without going over your shopping budget for the month.

Whether you prefer a one-time purchase or a full-year commitment with the brand, the Sephora Beauty box offers four subscription plans. Here’s how much each plan costs:
- One-time purchase: £13.95
- 3 months: £13.50/month
- 6 months: £12.55/month
- 12 months: £11.95/month
If you choose their 12-month subscription, you can get your first box for only £2.95! You can choose your Sephora Beauty Box plan here.
What do you get in the Sephora Beauty Box?
Compared to other beauty box subscriptions that deliver curated picks for the month, Sephora lets you decide what you want to receive in your box.
Every month you can choose five deluxe samples from their different categories—body, hair, makeup, and skincare—that you want to try. They don’t even have to be in the same category!

You can build a box filled with only hair products or skincare, it’s all up to you. It’s also nice to have something different every month, so you don’t get bored of receiving the same thing.
One of the most difficult parts of finding the best cosmetic product for you is the trial and error, but with Sephora you can try and try every month with spending too much money on different products.
Here are a few items from cult-brands and big names you can expect in the Sephora Beauty Box:

How often do you get the Sephora Beauty Box?
You will receive the beauty box every month, exactly 30 days from the day you bought your first subscription box. Sephora will remind you to edit your products for month via email 7-days before you will receive the next box.
If you don’t log into your account and pick your samples within the 7-day timeframe, you will receive a box via autoselection. Don’t worry, you won’t receive an item you picked out last month.
