Life of a millennial is tough. We want the latest fashion, we always want the trendiest things, eat the most photogenic food that is available and the constant FOMO that looms over our heads over our friends’ social media posts and updates. So while we always want the trendiest things, they may not always be pocket friendly. That’s where subscription boxes enter our lives with a powerful swoop. Subscription boxes have been around for a while now and are slowly becoming more and more popular in India as well.
Why we need subscription boxes?
While we all always want to be trendy and update our wardrobes and palates with the latest offerings of the fashion and gourmet world, it may not always be economical. So therefore the need for a subscription box arises. A subscription box is a monthly service that sends you the latest offerings in your field of choice at an affordable cost. So for a set amount a month, we have the luxury of getting the latest offerings delivered to us in the comfort of our homes at a very reasonable cost. Thus, this proves to be the need of the hour for our Instagram obsessed and selfie addicted generation, where all our needs are met without burning a hole in the pocket.
While there are tonnes of subscription boxes available in the market, the most popular categories are food, fashion and beauty products.
Here is the lowdown of some of the most popular subscription boxes available in India.
My Envy Box
This one has two variants: Jewellery and Beauty. The jewellery box consists of some wonderful and trending pieces of jewellery that can be worn on any occasion. And the best part is getting 5-6 pieces of jewellery delivered to your doorstep at a fixed cost. The fashionista in me is gleaming at the thought of it.
The beauty box contains a mix of skincare products and makeup from established and new upcoming luxury makeup brands. The thought of new skincare goodies delivered to my house every month makes me want to jump with joy. Also, their loyalty programme allows you to buy full size products at great discounts. What more do we girls want?
