Case Study – Beauty Box Subscriptions

Beauty Box Subscriptions

Tailored Kitting and Fulfilment for a Beauty Subscription Service

Subscription services have grown massively over the past five years. Subscribers in the UK spend £2 billion each year on them, and 26% of those sales are in cosmetics, beauty, and grooming products. Beauty box subscriptions are a runaway success for the sector, offering a handpicked selection of beauty and skincare products delivered monthly to your door.

Prolog provides monthly management of beauty box subscriptions, for circa 150-180k subscribers on behalf of our client. Fulfilment of the subscriptions requires multiple kit variations, according to customer requirements, and promotional material is included to accompany specific branded products. Kits are collated and shipped at the start of each month to ensure the despatch meets client ‘allocation’ data and inbuilt QC checks.
