I think the only time I will venture into a new product discovery, is when I rub a free sample all over my face/body/wrists when it falls out of my (many) magazines, we all do it don't we? but I am always the sceptic when it comes to actually trying anything new. Enter Glossybox.
Now I'd heard along the grapevine (thank you Twitter) about Glossybox from the hoardes of gorgeous young beauty bloggers who were busy raving about them, the products and the excitement of their 'box' turning up. To be quite frank, I had not a clue what they were going on about, and thought perhaps it was just me being 'old' Upon looking into the new found lingo of the lush beauty bloggers I came to this http://www.glossybox.co.uk/ an absolute divine looking website, that looked so boutique and well, to be frank something that only rich people would click on. So let me tell you a little more about GlossyBox, it literally is, well, kinda what it says on the tin. Every month, Glossybox will deliver a mix of 5 new exciting product miniatures packed within a very lush box so that us 'Joe Average' can try out in the comfort of our home. simples huh!? Well, of course there's a price for this, its £10.00 per month + plus your postage and packing, Which I have to be honest, compared to the RRP of some of the products you get to try, this is mightily cheap.
On first thought - it's a genius idea, but for someone like me, who is a product phobe, who barely spends more than a tenner on her beauty regime, would this really work? well, actually, yes - its even more of genius idea! It allows me to finally try all these fancy schmancy products, before I actually part with my rather hard earned cash to buy the lotions and potions. The box arrived bang on time, and my lord, was it presented absolutely beautifully (yes, I almost didn't want to open it) when I (manically) opened it, filled to the brim full of goodies and with a clear, detailed description of every item, I felt thoroughly chuffed and like a little kid at Christmas, I wanted to try everything out all at once! Here's what I got in my box:
- Ahava (Mineral Body Lotion)
RRP: £22.00 250ml
- DANIEL SANDLER (JUMBO JET Mascara)
- KMS California (COLORVITALITY shine & shield)
RRP: £13.00 250ml
- Murad (Time Release Blemish Cleanser)
RRP: £29 200ml
- Rebel Nails (Nail Wraps)
RRP: £5.99-£7.99 per pack
I haven't got round to using them all yet, but as and when I do, I shall review them all on here... I mean why not!? My vote is definitely a thumbs up for the GlossyBox, granted, it wont be for everyone mainly due to the costing, but if like me, you genuinely don't feel the need or can be bothered to go trying out new products on your own, this is ideal.... plus I really like the box.
