Australia’s Latest Beauty Subscription Box – The Parcel by Marie Claire & Girlfriend Magazine

Hi everyone,

Recently, I was informed about a new beauty subscription box that will enter the Australian market very soon and I have to say, I think it’s going to be one of the best ones in the market, judging from all the information currently available.

The Parcel is the latest offering to all beauty lovers in Australia. With a option to choose between The Parcel by Marie Claire (can be purchased now) and The Parcel by Girlfriend (registrations of interest are open now), the box promises deluxe samples, hand picked by the editors of the magazines. The currently available to be purchased, The Parcel by Marie Claire, is a seasonal box (4 boxes per year) priced at $25 each, with discounts if you subscribe annually or take out an annual subscription to the box and their magazine.

Their first box, The Spring Edit will be sent out to subscribers in October and is said to contain over $100 worth of  deluxe samples from the ‘must have, new season buys’ from some of the largest and well known beauty brands, including: Lancome, OPI and Benefit Cosmetics. Your subscription also comes will a free, cancel anytime policy.

Now, I have a bit of a dilemma… I really want to subscribe to the first box, The Spring Edit which will be sent out in a couple of months. I’m expecting some incredible products included and for the box to be a knock out seeing as it is THE first box but I also want to wait until the first box is released to take a look at its contents before signing up so that I can make sure that it is as amazing in real life as I imagine it to be!


What do you think I should do? Sign up for the first box or wait until it’s released and then decide whether or not to take up a subscription?


That’s all for now,
