TOYL (Time Of Your Life) is a beauty box created specially for women over 40, women in midlife, who want to learn more about how to care for their skin and enjoy trying out some of the newest, most exciting and innovative skincare products available.
TOYL was founded by Karen Davis, an ex-PR and award-winning beauty blogger, she has also written a best selling book about how to live brilliantly in midlife, called The Time Of Your Life and has worked with some of the UK's top newspapers and magazines.
The beauty regime we had in our 20s and 30s just isn't going to work as we move into midlife, our 40s, 50s and beyond. With changing hormones, stressful lifestyles, and sun damage at the forefront of our minds, our skin needs a little more TLC. And the TOYL beauty box offers the very best beauty products, combining the latest research, to ensure we love what we see in the mirror and that our skin is cared for every day!
TOYL is a skincare box that enables you to discover new beauty brands as well as stock up on some old favourites. It is always exciting when the new month's box arrives and you get to unwrap and find out what products it contains! And the packaging is all recyclable! Beauty boxes represent such fantastic value for money, and you can try something new that you might not have bought otherwise!

TOYL is not just a subscription beauty box, it is very very flexible, offering you to chance to buy a one-off box, subscribe, pause or send a beauty gift box to someone else!

A different theme each month
Every month TOYL announces a different theme, for November 2023, the theme is 'Fine Line Erase'. In previous months, I've enjoyed 'Night Workers', 'Radiant Skin' and 'Summer Beauty' with each one tailored for a specific set of skincare concerns - all designed to help you have radiant, healthy skin and confidence in yourself.
The themes chosen by TOYL all complement each other and are designed to address your beauty needs throughout the year - so 'Summer Beauty' arrived in summer and contained a hair mask to look after holiday hair, a firming leg serum to help you get holiday ready, and a self-tan with SPF 30. TOYL continually review what women want, they talk to their customers and listen to the reviews to make sure their beauty boxes contain exactly the right products.
When the theme is announced you get to choose if you would like to receive that months box, read on to find out how it works.
TOYL Beauty Box - Subscription
Sign up to a regular TOYL monthly subscription for £39.99 - and this is amazing value as many of the boxes are worth well over £100! In October 2023 the value of products is £164 for example. Being a subscriber means you are part of the TOYL Members Group so you receive up to date beauty news, podcasts and video tutorials.
But you can pause your subscription if you don't want or need that month's box, TOYL make it very easy! Full instructions are given to you, but just make sure you notify them by 6 pm on 19th of the month and you won't receive or get charged for the next month's box.
TOYL Beauty Box - One-off Purchase
If you love the idea of trying TOYL or you see a fantastic box you really want, then you can now buy a one-off TOYL beauty box! Maybe there is a hero product in it that you need to restock or want to try and it is highly likely that buying it through TOYL is cheaper than buying the product on it's own! For £49.99 you can buy a one-off box with no commitment, unless of course you love it so much you then want to subscribe.
TOYL Evolve boxes contain a selection of super-charged solutions for mature skin with specific issues. Karen created these boxes to resolve real skin challenges. Not glamorous but amazing products that are beautiful to use. The TOYL Evolve boxes cost £49.99 every three months or £49.99 as a one-off purchase.
TOYL Beauty Gift Box - or Vouchers!
You can gift TOYL to your wife, girlfriend, bestie, mum, daughter .... the list is endless! Birthdays or Christmas or just because. The pretty gift cards get sent to you or your loved one and you can add a personal message too. Or you can gift a one-off box!
