Sifting through the endless supply of new beauty websites (more brands! more colors!) can be as overwhelming as a warehouse-sized Sephora. For some much-needed curation and guidance, or just to indulge your love of sample-sized products, we’ve bookmarked three battle-tested sites as our favorites.

Nubonau is an online boutique specializing in all-natural and organic skincare with tailored selections for men, moms-to-be and even preteens. Our favorite find is Glory For Girls foaming cleanser ($12; nubonau.com).

From Malin + Goetz to David Kirsch Wellness, the TSA-friendly site 3floz carries more than 40 brands in trial sizes or kits (below), all ready for carry-on travel. A recent addition is the Physique 57 workout kit (from $16; 3floz.com).

Start-up site Birchbox delivers high-end samples (like Marc Jacobs, Laura Mercier and NARS) in a monthly goody box ($10 per month; birchbox.com), with corresponding expert tips and DIY advice featured online.
