I never used to be that concerned with all things beauty (probably due to a period in my early teens when I became disillusioned after spending hundreds of pounds on products and realising that 98% didn’t actually work) but when I turned 26 this year I began to feel that I couldn’t afford to have such a defeatist attitude any more (the first signs of aging will do that to a girl). Now I’m on a mission to find a handful of products that really deliver – no mean feat when you consider how saturated the marketplace is. If, like me, you’re wondering where to begin then you need Glossybox…
Fellow beauty seekers, this prettily packaged box of goodies is the answer to our prayers. Subscribe for £10 a month and receive a selection of five miniatures from luxury brands delivered straight to your front door. Every product has been carefully selected by the Glossybox team and will arrive with notes on exactly what you’ve got and how to use it.
To mark the company’s 6 month anniversary I got sent a box with an extra 6th product. My selection included the following:
1. Dermalogica Age Smart, Multivitamin Thermafoliant (skin polisher)
2. Dermalogica Age Smart, Multivitamin Power Recover Masque
3. Dermalogica Age Smart, Renewal Lip Complex
4. Leighton Denny nail polish in Babydoll
5. Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner
6. A selection of three Robert Piguet eau de parfums in a little organza pouch
Considering the nail polish alone would normally cost £11, Glossybox is incredibly good value. It’s also a great way to experiment with and discover new products you’d never normally try. Plus, I don’t know about you, but I LOVE getting things in the post, so unwrapping a little box of beauty bits and bobs would definitely be something to look forward to every month.
