Glossy Box arrives to UK

I have heard much hype recently about the Birch Box craze throughout the USA. If you are not familiar with Birch Box, it is a monthly subscription costing just $10 a month, whereby you receive a nicely presented box with a selection of 4-5 luxury, 'deluxe' high-end samples delivered to your door. You'll receive anything from skincare to makeup, to nail polish and beauty tools, from well-known brands as well as emerging gems. It gives you a chance to try out new products (without buying the full size product), and if discover you love the samples then you can purchase the full-size versions directly at a discount. Sadly this service was only available in the USA only, until last week when GlossyBox was launched in the UK!

For £10 monthly (free P&P) subscription charge, every month a GlossyBox is delivered to your door containing five carefully selected, indulgent and exciting luxury samples to test out at home. In addition to high-end luxury product miniatures, the box contains product information, application notes and tips and tricks about beauty and style.

The unique appeal of GlossyBox is that as a recipient of the box you can create your own personal beauty profile on their site so they can choose the right products to fit your needs and tastes. The product range is diverse, ranging from a luxury lipstick to a trendy hair care product from a cutting edge brand.

It’s a bargain considering some of the brands involved are NARS, OPI, Laura Mercier, Kiehls, amongst more so the perfect way to keep up with the newest beauty trends without breaking the bank. It’s also a great way for all of us beauty lovers to test new products before making our mind up without forking out for the full-size version.

You can also cancel your subscription whenever you like, with no strings attached. I've heard a rumour that there shall be a NARS product in the first box! Sounds too good to be true? To find out more and to order click here.
