Amy with a Clean Routine Beauty box
Amy is the founder of Clean Routine Beauty, a monthly beauty subscription box service focusing on non-toxic and cruelty-free beauty products. Her motivation in starting this brand came from her own very personal journey. We dive into what she's learned, her challenges, the best parts, this solopreneur's nighttime ritual, and which book she loved this year! The Moonlit team is thrilled to be a part of CBR's box this month!
Q: Hi Amy. We know the motivation for starting Clean Routine Beauty came from a very personal experience. Can you share a little bit on why you created the subscription service?

Q: What are some of the challenges and rewards of starting a subscription box service?
However, the most rewarding part is seeing people making the switch to cleaner beauty and loving how they feel about the products they use and the brands they support. The positive feedback from our members is also what keeps us going.
