GLOSSYBOX is a monthly subscription that delivers five luxury beauty products to your home for only $21.
Calling all beauty product junkies! While you’re scouring the web looking for gifts this holiday season, it’s important to treat yourself as well–you deserve it. GLOSSYBOX is a gift to yourself every month with five amazing beauty products that would definitely cost more than the monthly $21 subscription fee. The brands they include in your monthly box are the crème de la crème of beauty products, such as Bvlgari, Essie, and Fresh (a personal favorite). The box can include anything from nail polish, the face masks and the contents are always a surprise. Their Facebook page may contain a spoiler or two, but everything else is left to be discovered when your box arrives. Their site also allows you to gift GLOSSYBOX to the beauty product addict on your holiday shopping list!
I decided to find out if the $21 price tag is worth what’s inside the box. One of the products in their last delivery was a full-sized mascara by the company Tarte. That one product alone retails for $23 and comes with high praise from Sephora reviewers (so you’ve already gotten your money’s worth). They also have collaborations with the best companies in fashion, such as Net-a-Porter and Byrdie. The GLOSSYBOX team isn’t a group of amateurs; they’re seasoned beauty experts who scout out the hottest high-end beauty goods that should be in your makeup kit. Sometimes you need someone to put a product directly in your hands to try it, and this is a team of experts you can trust. Unfortunately Canada gets left out from the fun once again, but if they expand to my region, I’ll definitely be trying out this service!
