The Glossy Experience

The Glossy Experience

I've been subscribed to glossybox.com for a while now. I am quite enjoying the experience and am a little surprised at how much I look forward to each month's box - especially considering the fact that I went into the experience with my suspicions about how they could possibly provide me with products that would suit me. It's a struggle I sometimes have with the beauty world: some cosmetic products may not be quite right for my skin tone, while many skin care products aren't always ideal for sensitive skin. I found that with Glossybox, however, there was no need for such concerns. Glossybox is an online cosmetics outsourcing company that provides subscribers with a monthly assortment of products, all curated and carefully selected for their clients. I look forward to every box, as they never tell you what you are going to get (except for the sneaky peek that is usually flaunted on their website). Although I find some products more useful than others, such as last month's jelly pong pong aluminising gel (which is perfect for drawing attention to the cheekbones and helps to create definition to the face), I can truly say that I am never disappointed when I open that gorgeous light pink box to reveal my new discoveries...

I would recommend this service for those of you who may be curious about makeup, but may not know which brands to trust. Glossybox does all of the work for you by asking you to take a quiz which allows them to get to know you so that you will receive products that are actually useful to you. Whether you have 'problem skin' or just want to 'glam up' your daily look, there is bound to be a solution to your beauty related concerns. What is even more helpful is their Glossybox Magazine, a place of useful tips and tutorials to show you how to best use the products you've purchased. They also have a great youtube channel, where they interview experts and media personalities and discuss all things beauty with some of the industry's most likeable celebrities (such as Made in Chelsea's Binky Falstead). With all of these exciting aspects of the brand, it is hardly surprising that it is the UK's leading monthly subscription box for beauty. I'm going to leave you with a quotation from the team to give you a better idea of how lovely the whole concept is - if you hadn't already got that impression from my gushing...
