So the popularity of the “beauty box” is definitely in full force. The newest one to arrive in Canada is GLOSSYBOX which was founded in Germany and is making its way to more than 20 countries this year.
Like the other boxes, GLOSSYBOX will send members a box of 5 beauty items each month for $15 (including shipping) and to keep the experience “exciting” a wildcard surprise item may be sent at any time.
Essie Nail Polish in “Neo Whimsical”
Oscar De La Renta “Live In Love” Body Lotion
Beauty So Clean Sanitizing Wipes and Mist
Elizabeth Grant Skincare Moisturizing Stick
Ahava Mineral Hand Cream
Elizabeth Arden Prevage Night Cream
Like the other companies you can create an online personal beauty profile which will help the company to tailor the box to your individual needs.
I was most excited to receive the Essie nail polish since nail polish isn’t a product I splurge on and also the Beauty So Clean samples since I have not tried this product out before but have heard buzz about them through the beauty blogger scene.
While I love the idea of these beauty boxes I’m personally getting a bit overwhelmed by them. It can be really difficult to figure out which box is right for you as they are all quite similar but of course have different products. My advice would be to research and see what other people have received in all the different boxes over the last few months. Check which brands each box offers on their website too and choose the ones associated with brands that appeal to you. I always want to know if the brands are also easily accessible either through the beauty box site or by other means. After all there’s no point in falling in love with a product only to find you can’t purchase it later!
As a beauty blogger I’m privileged to be able to try out new products all the time which is why I haven’t personally signed up for any of these boxes. I do however think they make a really nice and thoughtful gift for any of the women in your lives that aren’t beauty junkies but still love to receive something special in the mail and like to try out new products.
What are your thoughts on the beauty boxes? Love them? Over them?
