Avon A Box | The New (almost) Subscription Box

When I first learned about beauty subscription boxes (a few years ago, by now) I was immediately interested. The thing was, as a Canadian I had to wait it out as there were none shipping here. Fast forward to present day, and there are a litany of boxes shipping worldwide. Such progress! Of course, a lot of have overdosed on boxes (I know I have) and no longer subscribe with such vigor. Avon has a new box that takes the idea of a subscription box, but makes it a little more user friendly.

A Box $10 USD / CAD (with $40 purchase)

The Avon A Box, is pretty much that- an A shaped box filled with full-size and mini versions of popular Avon products. Each box is prettily decorated to coordinate with the theme, and from what I've seen, always has at least two full-size items. The boxes are $10 with any Avon purchase of $40 or more with new boxes introduced every two weeks (aka one per campaign / brochure.) I love that this idea allows you the fun of a subscription service, the ability to try products you may not have otherwise. and that you can see exactly what you're getting. You are obviously free to skip one if you're not a fan of the contents or collect them all.

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen the past two boxes, but Avon recently sent the upcoming boxes that will be available throughout September and October.
