Have you guys heard of Rubybox? It’s a concept where you subscribe by paying R100 a month and you get 4-5 samples delivered to your door every month. If you enjoy trying new products and knowing what’s new in the market in terms of beauty, then this is for you.

Rubybox kindly sent me a box to review and the first thing that struck me was the packaging. It’s so pretty! I felt like I was opening up a treasure 🙂

Inside, there were tons of samples- about 12 different Givenchy perfumes, a Lancome Youth Activating Concentrate, Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream and Palmer’s Cocoa Butter. Most of these retail for a fortune (R400-R600), so if you do the maths you actually are getting alot more value than the R100 you spend.

Rubybox also runs special boxes now and again. They recently launched one called the “Collection” (now sold out) which had some full size products.

The Collection

In addition to that, they’ve also launched an online magazine where “rubies” (rubybox members) can read up on the latest beauty news and product reviews, plus they’ve just launched their online boutique which allows rubies to purchase full size versions of their fav samples.
