Glossy Box Australia: Hit or Miss?

Hi everyone so I thought I'd just do a post on what I think about the March issue of glossybox. Now disclaimer, they did send this to me for free, but not even to review. It was purely just to try out. But I thought I might just post my 2c on it anyways since I did take a few pictures!

So although they contacted me in Feb about sending me a free March glossybox, I did not receive the box until late March! And I believe that is similar to what others have said. So when I received it, the first thing I noticed was the packaging! Now I LOVE sweet little boxes that you can reuse for storage. And the Glossybox boxes are probably the NICEST in terms of presentation (in comparison to other subscription boxes available in OZ). It comes in a very hard and study pale pink box with a little glossybox logo in the middle - simple and elegant. Another thing I instantly noticed was there was this GORGEOUS smell coming from the box! Which was nice. But I think it was because of the product inside rather than the packaging (I wish). So once you open it, you'll be pleasantly welcomed to some letters and perfectly presented samples. So my rating on packaging? PERFECT.

However, we're not paying for packaging; how were the products you asked? Well, in my box it came with 5 beauty product and a novelty wrist band (useless to me. Binned). So I recieved the following:
1. Panda Pen - Eye Makeup Remover & Corrector Pen
2. Proactive Solution Cleansing Bar
3. Avene Gentle Toner
4. Absolutely Gorgeous Macadamia Face Cream
5. KMS California Hot Flex Hairspray

There were also some coupons included but nothing that really interested me.
According the pamphlet from Glossybox, the March Glossybox was focused on "health and on-the-go schedule".

Not 100% impressed with the box samples. I've heard from many people that the quality of Glossybox has been on a steady decline. And if this is basically what the month to month samples are like, I can not say I'd subscribe. There were BARELY any actual makeup products and I feel like if I had received this I would be disappointed. I havent had the chance to test out any of the products just yet and in all honesty I have no inclination to try any of them. I will use the proactive cleansing bar though because it smells lovely and my previous proactive use was a positive experience. Overall, the products are not bad and I will most definately try it out, but I feel like they could have put more effort into providing actual makeup products. In their defense they did include a "makeup remover" however it's pretty gimicky in my opinion :\

So overall? I'm not about to subscribe to glossybox just yet - and if I did it would probably be for the boxes :P



So what did I get?

  1. Hey,
    Your glossybox seems like a pretty good one. It's not too bad, i had glossybox for three months earlier this year and i wasn't impressed either. It didn't send you the good stuff like it says online, and half the things I got, i didn't think i would use even though we do a profile when you sign up.
    glad to know i'm not the only one who was disappointed haha
