My First Glossy Box

The rise of the 'beauty subscription' box has made quite an impact on the beauty community. I have watched from afar but have never joined the bandwagon despite being really intrigued. After seeing and reading reviews on different brands of 'beauty subscription' boxes, I've come to the understanding that its a bit of a gamble as to what your receive. Sometimes you will get really fantastic products and other times the products are frankly rubbish. 
When Glossy Box were offering customers a chance to purchase a one-off beauty box without setting up a monthly subscription I thought it was the perfect opportunity to have a try.I won't go too much into packaging because by now I'm sure you will have seen what a Glossy Box looks like.
In the box:
- Collin Resultime: Regenerating Collagen Gel.
- Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger: Texturizing Sea Spray.
- Monu: Extra Rich Night Cream.
- Jelly Pong Pong Cosmetics: Lip Frosting. 
- Kryolan: Satin Powder Eyeshadow. 

I was secretly hoping that I would receive the HD Brow Kit, but unfortunately I was disappointed with what was in my particular box. I think I'll make do with the products but they don't thrill me, nothing to write home about but I guess thats part and parcel of such concepts. What does everyone else think of beauty boxes?x


  1. I keep thinking about signing up to a beauty box but I don't think I will because the risk of getting products I don't like really puts me off - I'd rather spend the money on something I know I definitely like! x

    1. I think enough people have beauty boxes and then review the products. I like to spend money on products I know will work and I will like. I like to collect certain things, but I don't like to hauled a lot of products either. x

  2. I think beauty boxes are great! It's just about finding a beauty box that suits u. I don't think a lot of people like glossy box. They're very hit n miss.

    1. I have heard this too. It would be interesting to see how many people would buy beauty boxes outside of the 'beauty community' because 'beauty subscription' companies have mainly targeted people through youtubers and bloggers x
