By now it’s no secret that I love sample clubs. I love trying new products and any service that lets me do that for less money is gold to me. My favorite is Beautyfix because it’s less a sample club than it is a full size product trial club. Now there’s a new club in town called Glossybox.
With Glossybox, you get 5 Travel Size products each month. BUT they are “luxury” products. Department Store brands and high-end beauty only. So this was my first month and this month’s box is called, “The Man Repeller”. And how much do I LOVE that they name their collections? LOVE!
Here’s what I got:
Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara
Fresh Umbrian Clay Mattifying Serum
Le Metier de Beaute Replenishing Daily Solution
Narcisco Rodriguez for her Eau de Toilette Spray
OPI “Can’t Let Go” Liquid Sand Nail Lacquare (It’s a purple textured Nail Polish from the Mariah collection!!!)
Sebastian Professional Potion 9
Tarte Glamazon Pure Performance 12-Hour Lipstick (it’s a bright red and I don’t remember the last time I wore RED lipstick)
My impression of this service is that I LOVE the products and some of the really high end stuff that I normally wouldn’t try – like the Metier sample – is very much appreciated! I did try that already and I LOVED it. It felt as luxurious as I know it cost! I wasn’t fond of the lipstick color though with Valentine’s Day, I gave it a pass. I am going to enjoy the Fresh product – which looks full size and I ADORE the Mariah sample… though I’m not sure I’m going to use it (I’m so weirded out by the texture).
The service is $21 per month though the more months you buy up front, the better your price per box will be. I’ll definately keep this service because I enjoy the caliber of the brands. And I also like the Glossydot philosophy… you got Glossydots for recommending friends, survey’s and the like. 1000 Glossydots and you get a free box.
If you’re inclined to try, leave your email in the comments and I’ll shoot you an email so I can get Glossydots!
