March Glamourbox 2013

This is my 2nd time to purchase a beauty box from Glamourbox. In my opinion, last month’s beauty box was actually better because I was one of the lucky ones to get a full-size Kerastase Fluide Oleo Relax… so in a way, if I would to base it solely on the price, I’d say it was worth it.

But boy oh boy was I disappointed when I got my 2nd Glamourbox for the month of March. For a box so big, I was expecting that the samples inside would be more and a lot better than the other beauty boxes in the market but, unfortunately, that was not the case. BDJ’s March box is actually way better.

March box

A Glamourbox subscription costs about Php595 and so far, it is actually the most expensive beauty box in the Philippines. I have to say though that I like their box because it looks and feels sturdy so I’m sure that it will serve as a great storage box for me. However, I didn’t pay Php595 for the box, I paid for what’s inside of it.

Let’s take a look at each item:

1. Eye of Horus Natural Smokey Eye Pencil – Full Size (Php960)

This is the only thing that actually got me excited about this month’s beauty box. I haven’t tried any of the products from Eye of Horus yet but I heard a lot of great reviews from others so I’m eager to try this one soon. Good thing that the price of this item is more than what I paid for (Php960) so somehow, I don’t feel too bad.

2. Pevonia Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser (Php2950)

I have already received a similar sample of this one from SampleRoom and I really love using it so it was a delight to get another supply from Glamourbox. –>> delighted but not impressed

3. Avon Skin So Soft Glutathione Whitening Renewal Hand & Body Lotion (Ppho350 – 250ml)

Glamourbox gave us 2 sample bottles of this lotion from Avon (50ml each). I am seriously not happy to get these samples. I do think that Avon is an okay good brand but seriously… Avon??? I can buy Avon products from my neighbor if I want to since she’s a direct seller so this is not impressive at all…–> *just my opinion*

4. Heynature (BB Creams – Php1300) & (Aqua Brightening Gel – Php1750)

Well… I guess I would have been happier if I got more or bigger samples of these but it’s fine. There are actually 5 pieces in total – 4 BB Creams and 1 Aqua Brightening Gel. I have already used the Aqua Brightening Gel and it is difficult for me to make a review about it because I only got 1 sachet to try.

5. Yves Saintlaurent (Php4300) & Ralph Lauren (Php4300)

Perfume samples are common in beauty boxes so these are not surprising anymore.

6. Coupons

Well.. I have no intentions of using any of these coupons so it’s a complete waste for me.

***I still don’t know if I would subscribe again for next month’s beauty box. Glamourbox really needs to improve their offerings. BDJ is killing them by a mile…  yikes!

  2. Hello. I just subscribed to Glamourbox and I honestly don’t know how to track my order. I already paid using my card but did not receive any response from them. Any idea how you’d know your order pushed through? Sorry, kinda unrelated comment. I just don’t know where to get help. 😦

    • Hi. 🙂 Sometimes it takes a while for them to send an email confirmation… but rest assured that they will eventually send you an email. Another thing you can do (which I also do) is to send them a private message through their Facebook page. They do respond fast on fb. Hope that helps. 🙂
