Glossybox South Africa

By on March 14, 2012 in Beauty, Inspiration, Interviews, My Photography, My Reviews, Product Reviews, Video Reviews 42

Recently I got my hands on a Glossybox! The February Glossybox was the South Africa launch of this very popular international brand.

Glossybox is the ideal way to try out high-end beauty products before you buy the full-priced item. How many times have you treated yourself to an expensive product only to realise it wasn’t quite right for you? Glossybox can help you avoid expensive beauty mistakes. GlossyBox is designed to offer beauty lovers an easy way to test luxury products from international brands to find out for yourself whether they are really worth buying. All samples are selected and tested by professionals and they send the best beauty products and latest makeup trends directly to your door every month!




How Glossybox works
1. Register and subscribe to receive your monthly Glossybox.
2. Complete your Beauty Profile so the products are matched to your personal beauty requirements.
3. While you wait for your first Glossybox to arrive visit the website for the latest beauty trends and tips from professionals.
4. Receive your beautifully packaged Glossybox containing 4-5 luxury trial size products from high-end brands.
5. Delivery takes place during the first week of every month and is direct to your door.
6. In addition to luxury trial products, the box contains product information and application notes.
7. Once you’ve received your Glossybox, review any of the products via the online questionnaire and receive Glossydots.

The February Glossybox
So, the moment you have been waiting for – my review on the contents of the February box….




Watch this video (my first vlog!) to see what products I received in my Glossybox

The products included the following:
BEAUTE PACIFIQUE – Metamorphique CrΓ¨me
A Vitamin A Anti-Wrinkle Cream perfect for all women from age twenty five and up (that’s me!!). This miracle product prevents and reduces existing signs of ageing while working through the deepest layers of the skin, the cream combats sun damage too! Dermatologist approved, not tested on animals and contains no ingredients from animal origin. I am expectant of transformative results but I think only time will tell… Let’s wait and see. If you bump into me and I look less haggard please mention it πŸ˜‰


NESTI DANTE – Citrus and Bergamot Luxury Soap
A delicious smelling yellow soap with bergamot and citrus. Very fresh! This has already found a home in my shower to help me start the day with a little bit of luxury!


CARITA – Ideal Douceur Cotton Mask

Cotton is a special treatment for ultrasensitive skin. It immediately soothes even the most reactive skin. Within a few moments, the skin feels soothed, supple and the complexion looks more uniform and radiant. I’m eager to try this as most masque’s are too harsh for my sensitive skin and I have to remove them within seconds. Will feedback asap!

L’OCCITANE – Shea Butter Hand Cream

A lovely, creamy hand cream in a perfect handbag size – mine has already made it’s way there…. Enriched with 20% Shea Butter, this balm penetrates quickly to protect, nourish and moisturize hands without leaving an oily residue. Honey, almond extracts and coconut oil are blended with Shea Butter to create this extremely effective hand cream. A lovely brand too!


Other products included in the Glossybox
A voucher worth R650 for a Dermascan skin analysis at BEAUTE PACIFIQUE
A gel eye-mask (great for tired mom eyes!)
A cute compact mirror (another great handbag accessory!)
