Beauty Subscription Boxes: Glossybox

  Wednesday 15th February 2012

Over the last 12 months an array of various companies offering Beauty Box subscriptions have popped up in the UK following on from the massive success of the concept in America. Companies such as Glossybox offer monthly beauty boxes delivered directly to your home for £10 plus postage and packaging. Each box contains 5 luxury product miniatures from high end brands. Generally these do tend to be sample sizes however (although it is in no way guaranteed) every month at least 1 product tends to be full size.

 

In addition to your samples you will also receive an information card telling you all about the products in your box, from what they do to where you can buy the full size version, and more often that not, a discount code for your next purchase of each individual product. Glossybox also offer a service that enables you to provide feedback about the boxes you have been receiving allowing them to improve and adjust the contents of your box, so it is more suited to you.

For all the girls out there who, like myself, are somewhat make-up mad, then beauty subscription boxes are the way forward. They allow you to sample high end skin care, cosmetics, nail varnishes and fragrances in the comfort of your own home. No one wants to splash out on an expensive product only to find it’s not for you and Glossybox helps to prevent that. It has also allowed me to discover some amazing finds, including Ahava moisturisers, Ritual foaming shower gels and signature fragrance Plum from Mary Greenwell.

 

 

You can cancel your subscription at any time with just 14 days’ notice prior to dispatch, but I’ve got absolutely no idea why you would want to. Separate boxes available for men. Visit www.glossybox.com for more information.
