In A Nutshell: Saladbox was the first one to open to the public amongst the four local beauty sampling companies. Aside from international and major brands, they also carry local ones and feature products from various local online beauty shops.
Price of Beauty Box: P500.00/box (They also have subscription plans)
Best Feature: They give opportunities to micro businesses; (e.g. online beauty shops and small- time local brands) They have their own e-commerce site where you can purchase the full- sized versions of the samples.
Not-so-good Feature: Overall quality of the box is not consistent (as per most subscribers)
Best For: People who like discount cards (Saladbox seems to give out a bevy of discount cards), people who love patronizing local products; people who love the element of surprise; people who love online shops and are interested to see what they have to offer; people who want to discover unknown local brands
In A Nutshell: Made by the same company who created the hit Belle Du Jour Planner. The BDJ Box is made to somehow address your beauty needs and concerns, particularly skin, body, and hair. They also got makeup too.
