Special Delivery! A Guide to Online Beauty Box Clubs
For the Skin-Care Buff
If your mood is determined by how your complexion is faring, this spin-off club of online giant Dermstore.com may be the answer to your prayers for nonoily moisturizers or firming eye creams. For days when you're able to obsess about something other than pore size, there are well-chosen hair and makeup selections too.
THE GOODS: You decide on eight deluxe travel-size to full-size products from around 50 options recommended for your hair and skin type (as supplied in an online questionnaire). Skin-care brands include dermatologist-approved DDF, Glytone, Vichy, and natural and organic choices, plus high-end makeup and hair care with a problem-solving slant (such as Peter Thomas Roth plumping mascara and Nick Chavez body-building clay for hair).
THE FINE PRINT: After signing up, you receive an email every quarter prompting you to look over products and pick those you want. These shipments arrive approximately every three months and cost $50 each, U.S. shipping included. Renewal is automatic, so if you want to cancel (or skip a quarter), call 866-381-4207.
