From scents to shampoos, cosmetics to candles, these are the beauty clubs you’re going to want to be a part of…

FOR FRAGRANCE FANATICS
Escentual Fragrance Discovery Set, buy it here for £19.95
With spritzing on perfumes in a department store not currently possible, beauty e-tailer Escentual.com is here to put the fun back into fragrance with its new Discovery Sets.
Seven of the best balms for softening and hydrating dry lips this winter
The best facial cleansers for every skin type – from balms and creams to gels and oils
Each monthly kit will contain eight mystery vials focused on a particular fragrance family (February’s is chypre) – sniff, share your thoughts on Escentual’s Facebook group then wait for the perfumes to be unveiled to be at the end of the month.
The £19.95 cost of the box can be redeemed against any purchase on the website – perfect if you’ve just found your new signature scent.
FOR CURLY-HAIRED GIRLS
Curls Club, buy it here for £45
One shampoo doesn't always suit all, especially for those with curly or Afro hair, and it can be hard to know exactly which products are going to work before you buy them. Curls Club takes the guesswork out by collaborating with experts in curly hair, producing a package of their recommendations containing everything you need to wash, condition and style your coils.
Created with model and influencer Penny Whittingham, the first box includes products, worth more than £80, from brands like Bouclème, Imbua and Nylah. This particular box is a one-off purchase, but look out for a bi-monthly subscription service coming soon.
FOR THE CANDLE OBSESSIVE
Burn The Candle membership, sign up here from £5 a month
Whether you see them as a special treat or a daily ritual, scented candles can be an expensive habit. A Burn The Candle membership gives you a 40 per cent discount on luxury candles that usually cost £35, so you only pay £20 for each one. You’ll even receive free candles if you upgrade to the £10 and £20 membership options.

If you’re familiar with popular “premium beauty at cost price” members’ club Beauty Pie, this is a similar idea.

From modern, innovative products to individually prescribed routines, Hairstory is making adopting more sustainable haircare habits easy and enjoyable.
Sign up to receive big pouches of one of three varieties of the brand’s cult product, New Wash – a detergent-free cleanser that’s biodegradable and gentle on the hair – delivered as often as you need it. You’ll also receive a bottle, jar or aluminium dispenser to store it in with your first order.
FOR A SMOOTHER SHAVE
Estrid razors, buy the handle for £7.95 and four replacement heads from £9.95 every three months here
Aiming to make the chore of shaving more effective, appealing and affordable, Estrid’s razor subscription service ensures you’ll never have to make do with a blunt blade again.
