I’m not a huge fan of the concept, because we all get swamped with so many samples at different events and they don’t really get used. I usually just throw away perfume samples, and keep the rest at the back of my drawer where they seem to die a sad death.
What I AM a big fan of, is good value for money. I got sent a May Glossy Box and was quite pleased to see that it was less sample and more product, which for R130, I think is pretty sweet. I love that the boxes are personalized, so if you’re dark skinned you’re not going to get foundation that is designed for a light skin colour.
What I don’t like, is that you have to purchase the box without knowing what’s in it. Apparently the June one is great, but I just don’t feel comfortable spending money on some random products that I may not want.
You pay on a per month basis as opposed to subscribing which is great if you’re having a tight month and would rather do without your Glossybox for that month.
I was really impressed with the packaging- I could see that whoever packed it paid alot of attention to detail.
