Art of Organics

A really good subscription box makes the day of its arrival feel like your birthday. Art of Organics does a beautiful job of curating clean beauty products into monthly boxes, culled around a certain concept (like "fresh" or "detox"), which is pulled into a bespoke print or illustration used on the packaging and note to elaborate on the products chosen.

I really didn't think I needed a subscription, but after following them on Instagram for several months, I found myself observing wistfully all the boxes released that I didn't have. Since signing up, I've had no regrets. Not one box has darkened my doorstep that I thought "well, this month's a dud., I'll see how the next one turns out." I've discovered some new holy grail items (like the Birch Rose & Co. mask pictured above that restores my dehydrated skin and quells breakouts) and have used everything up. Claire, the founder, has an innate sense of what her clientele are after and has somehow managed the tall order of satisfying everyone while keeping things exciting. 

A box of staples that satisfy a hole you didn't realize you had at $39 a pop (complimentary shipping), I cannot recommend it enough.
