Let’s face it, in a perfect world, you would be trying the latest beauty launches as soon as they appear, testing out all the premium products without even a second thought about spending up to $300 on a face cream you may only use once or twice.
Regretfully, that’s not possible for everyone since is not within everyone’s budget, it’s also quite wickedly wasteful.
So hurrah for Glambox, the monthly treat that you can indulge in without feeling the least bit guilty. In essence, it’s a box packed full of deluxe beauty goodies in sample sizes that is delivered to your door once you subscribe.
It’s such a simple, ingenious idea that hasn’t been available in the Middle East before. Members simply sign up to the service online, answering a few questions to establish their “beauty profile” so that the selections can be better tailored to the individual. Every month, members will receive a gorgeously packaged box of beauty treasures that have been personalized according to their beauty profile. There will be a mixture of well-known brands already familiar and new along with niche ones worth trying out, but all will be samples of luxury brands, of a good size, with a worthwhile trial of each. No matter what the contents of the GlamBox, it will always be worth more than the monthly subscription rate. Brands you can expect to see include Kiehls, Elizabeth Arden, Lancome and Micallef, amongst many others.
It’s a concept that has taken off hugely in other countries – GlamBox itself is already hugely successful in countries including South Africa, China, Russia and Brazil while GlossyBox, a similiar concept, is immensely popular in the UK.
Not only is this a great way to try out new products you might not otherwise experiment with, you’ll also have a great selection of products perfectly sized for travel and cabin luggage. It’s a win-win, whichever way you look at it. If you get your friends to subscribe, you could even have a GlamBox party, sharing the excitement and opening all your boxes together, swapping the products you might not want with ones you do.
Go on and try it. You never know, you may find some new treasures that you find you can’t live without.
