Get Glossy

Twitter has gone a bit crazy for Glossy over the last few days. There’s a new company on the block that seems to be offering something that’s too good to be true – a box of premium brand samples delivered to your door once a month for the teeny price of £10.00. The idea behind Glossy Box is that they provide you with samples of skincare, makeup, hair and body products so you can find which ones work for you and therefore spend your pennies wisely. By filling out their online questionnaire they can find the products that suit you best, meaning you can really try products that you could choose to invest in without paying for the full size. Sounds too good to be true right? Well I’ve had a sneak preview at the first Glossy Box and I have to say I’m bloody impressed!

The box comes delivered beautifully so there’s no getting it confused with the gas bill. There’s a box within a box, all packaged with so much care and attention you feel like you’re unwrapping French lengerie and not a box of samples. Inside you get five different items – this time it included a NARS Orgasm Illuminator, All For Eve red lipstick, Alterna Rapid Repair Spray for hair, Bionova cleanser and a Como Shambhala moisturiser. On it’s own the NARS Illuminator retails at over £20 so you’ve got yourself a bargain here! How chuffed would you be to open a package that had about £50 worth of product that you paid a tenner for? It’s a bit like winning the lottery! This is such a fab idea and I can’t wait to see what’s in the next few boxes – I hope they can keep this high standard up and not end up sending out crappy perfume samples and sachets you may as well rip out of Cosmo. Here’s hoping they stay just as glossy…

    Oh this looks fantastic. IS it open to Ireland residents or is it just the UK?
