I have a bit of a soft spot for Glossy Box, mainly because the impression I get from their Facebook feeds is that they’re trying really, REALLY hard to keep everyone happy which, let’s face it, isn’t going to happen; especially with a product such as a sample box that is so varied in contents. I’m still due a delivery from Boudoir Prive, but having already received the Carmine box (review here) I’d say that this month’s Glossy Box isn’t terrible, but isn’t in the lead, both contents-wise or for value for money.
I really am such a fan of beauty boxes as an idea and a practice, but as it’s such a new thing I think Glossy Box haven’t fully got the hang of it yet; if you’re going to send out very general products, they need to be amazing, but if you’re going to send out less impressive products then they need to be fine-tuned to meet the needs of the receiver. Saying that, Glossy Box are, I believe, the first company to ask questions about skin/hair type and tone on sign-up, so maybe this means that person-specific boxes are in the pipeline. I’m more than happy to give them the benefit of the doubt and hope that next month’s box is a little more like last month’s which was great. For more info on Glossy Box, click here.
