GlossyBox: is it worth the money?

October 8, 2011

I’m a total beauty junkie – so when GlossyBox asked if I’d like to try their delivery service of course I said ‘yes’.

How it works is this: for £10 a month (plus p&p) GlossyBox subscribers get a beautifully packaged box of new, niche and on-trend beauty products, samples and loveliness.

Inside the box were:

an hd brows kit, which makes taming your face-framers that much easier
a sample of Plum by Mary Greenwell eau de parfum, which smells divine
rahua amazon beauty shampoo and conditioner samples, which made my hair look and feel shiny and soft (and also, miraculously, less frizzy)
Nuxe body oil – possibly my new favourite product. I’m a big fan of oils anyway but the scent of this one is incredible.
Omorovicza thermal cleansing balm, which is lovely.

My one criticism would be that the samples were slightly on the small side. But while the products weren’t exactly big, they were certainly luxury. I’m looking forward to next month’s box already. I love surprises, I love getting gifts, and I think this is a fabulous way to treat yourself to something gorgeous once a month without spending a fortune.

Update: I was so disappointed with the boxes that followed from GlossyBox that I decided not to renew my subscription.
