Beauty Treats from GLOSSYBOX

Every beauty addict at least once faces a following scenario: you try a new product in the search for the latest ‘miracle in the jar’, the product doesn’t deliver on its promises, you try another and soon enough your bathroom shelves are crowded with expensive yet hardly used products.

et current recession times force even most compulsive shoppers to re-evaluate their spending habits and become more frugal. This is where GLOSSYBOX with its great concept comes in. Based on our love for miniatures (remember freebie testers you get with a large beauty purchase?), GLOSSYBOX is a subscription service, which allows its customers, both men and women, to try 5 luxury beauty products at mere £10 a month.

Founded in 2011, this is a first online beauty subscription service in the UK. To customise product selection, GLOSSYBOX asks its customers to fill out beauty profile. In addition to individually selected and beautifully wrapped products (be it new perfumes, make-up, body and care products) that arrive every month, the box also contains latest beauty tips and style recommendations. Top beauty brands that have been featured in GLOSSYBOX include Shu Uemura, Vichy, Weleda, Stila, Yves Saint Laurent, Stila, OPI, Agent Provocateur and others. My June GLOSSYBOX arrived with GLOSSYBOX Pro Beauty blush brush, Yves Rocher Sexy Pulp mascara, BM Beauty pure-mineral bronzer, Agent Provocateur’s three Eau Provocateur fragrances, and Vichy Dermablend camouflage foundation stick. A great collection of new products to try this summer!

To get more information on the products and read application tips and make-up advices, busy ladies like myself can simply scan QR codes on the product card using iPhone or go on GLOSSYBOX’s website. Once tried and tested, beauty junkies can order full size of the products they liked and provide feedback to improve future product selection. The system encourages its customers to fill out product survey as each review counts for 50 GLOSSYDots and 1000 dots earn free GLOSSYBOX. I am definitely hooked on the idea and look forward trying more of the best beauty products available out there without damage to my wallet!
