Glossy Box chased away my Monday blues

Beauty products, pretty boxes, ribbons and different surprises each month – what’s not to love about Glossy Box? We hear from Linda Smith, who received her box today:

When my friend explained it to me last week, I took to it like a duck to water! I wasted no time in clicking through from her email, and ordering my 3 months subscription, the cost of this was £27.00 plus P&P. It was an added bonus that they were part of Give as you Live and signing up would raise £2.50 for charity. The longer the subscription the higher the amount that gets donated. Signing up for 12 months would raise £10!

I created my bespoke beauty profile to make sure I would like the products that would be on their way. And then I waited. It only took 24 hours before the box was dispatched and just 2 working days before box arrived.

My box arrived today, and it was perfect timing – a dreary miserable Monday morning. I received some mascara, a lipstick, some body oil, a mini perfume sample and a mineral blush powder. Check out how nicely packaged it was, along with a heart Valentine’s lolly:

The booklet that comes inside the box, explains what everything is and how much it costs. My favourite item is the mascara. I was running low so was planning on buying some this week, and this one costing me the equivalent of £2, is actually worth £7.99.

Once you’ve received your box, you can survey the products to accrue glossy dots, 1000 glossy dots will get you a free box. You can also share it with friends for additional glossy dots.

I think £10 a month is a small price to pay for 5 beauty products to try out. Plus the feel good factor of receiving the box is completely worth it.

Convinced? Order your box here, and help me build up my points 🙂

So, sign up and your cause receives an instant £2.50 donation (for a three month trial, or £1.75 for a one-month trial) while for just £10 a month you get a surprise box of goodies every month. We think that’s a pretty good deal – if you do too, sign up and let us know what your experience has been below.
