I was asked by the company Glossybox to review their monthly beauty product service since they are fairly new to this country. I was excited as well as curious to see what they had to offer since I had only heard of them recently but found this type of service doing well in the Natural hair community with Curlbox and others. I just had to check them out.
“Through our monthly GLOSSYBOX, we introduce you to the most exciting brands that we have forged strong relationships with on a global stage. Our GLOSSYMag leverages the power of our community of beauty lovers from all four corners of the globe to bring you the most cutting-edge trends. Whether it is the latest looks from the runways of Milan, the sun-kissed trends from the beaches of Brazil, or the newest skin care regimen from Japan, we make sure you hear about it first.” Glossybox
Here’s how it works:
1. You get five (5) travel-sized luxury beauty products sent to your door each month.
2. Once you have confirmed your membership, you pick your subscription plan and create a profile to help determine which types of products will be sent to you.
3. They truly expect you to love this service since women in fifteen (15) other countries already do and Glossybox listens to their customers.
The prices are $21.00 monthly or you can pay for a:
3 month subscription $60.00
6 month subscription $115.00
1 year subscription $220.00
I was sent the January box below which was called The Man Repeller and since they cater them to your needs here’s a few pictures of my beauty products.
I got a full size lipstick from Vincent Longo priced $23.00/.12oz., and full size nail polish priced $9.00 from OPI. All the rest were sample sizes but for the price of $21.00 a month (or even cheaper if you get the 3 or 6 month) you get more than you paid for. I was kinda shocked at the name brands they had in the box since it seems some are high end.
There was Estée Lauder mascara, Fresh Umbrian Clay Matifying Serium, Le Métier De Beauté, Living Proof prime style extender, and Narcisco Rodriguez perfume. My daughter LOVED the polish and I really liked the lipstick. The perfume wasn’t my daughter’s or my taste but you will not expect to like everything.
* Poor rating. Will not be buying again ever!!
** Mediocre. Will not be buying again.
*** Average. May or may not buy again.
**** Above average. Will probably buy again.
***** Excellent! Will buy again and may become a staple product.
I really enjoyed this service! The box was beautiful, the card that came with it explained each product and gave the price. A lot of these were high end products and I was able to try products I normally wouldn’t have the opportunity to try. I was pleasantly impressed. I feel it’s worth it and I could spare $21.00 a month knowing I’ll get decent sizes beauty items.
This is something fun and inexpensive and totally worth the money. They should get some great results in this country with this set up. The presentation is beautiful, the ribbons, the box, the pamphlet with detailed information on each item….it’s all very professional, and a smart buy. If you can spare $21.00 a month (I know times are hard) then I say give it a try.
I got a box for February and there were great sizes in there as well! I’ll be doing that review in about a week.
Take care Naturals,
