Glossybox reviews

Glossybox is a monthly beauty subscription service where beauty experts send you five deluxe beauty miniatures

The ultimate beauty experience

Glossybox is a monthly beauty subscription service where beauty experts carefully select – to your needs – five deluxe beauty miniatures and pop them in the post to you. Every month is a surprise, but the products are often different in individual boxes as they are sent suited to your beauty profile.

Setting up your beauty profile is easy, but not essential to getting boxes – in order to pick certain products which seem tailor-made for you, it is mandatory to learn as much as possible about your preferences and needs as they pertain to your skin type and hair. This should be easy for most women, but possibly not if being given as a gift – luckily they can be added/updated at any time.

As well as the monthly Glossybox, they also offer one off Exclusive Editions Boxes and Flashboxes which explore one theme or brand in depth. Subscribers can buy special boxes and get a special subscriber discount before they become available to everyone. The content of Flashboxes and Exclusive Edition boxes is published beforehand and is therefore not a surprise.

Glossybox never reveals in advance what the products will be, it would simply spoil the moment of surprise.

The price for what you get in each Glossybox is amazing, so even as a one-off, Glossybox is a great beauty subscription box to get.

Glossybox won't let me cancel

By myra

After a 3 month subscription, Glossybox refused to let me cancel. Not only that, they made me take another 3 month package. I have Chase bank working on it now. After 3 rude emails from someone named Carly, they said my issue was deemed “resolved” – in other words, their way or nothing. Not a very Classy box.

Love glossybox

By Lucy

I’m a student nurse so I don’t have time to go out shopping like I used to. I love having a subscription with glossybox as it means I get to come home with excitement ready to unbox and try out my new products. They are good with themes and making sure we have the mix of products that we can use. February was based on everything a girl needs for Valentine’s day ready for the big date or night out. It’s cheap and it expands my products. I used to stick with getting the same brands but now I get to broaden my make up collection. ????

I have had a glossy box for over 2years now and they just keep getting better and better ! It’s like a gift in the post you forget about normally brightens up my week. Gives you a range of full size products to samples, also provides you with a information booklet about the products. This box has introduced me to some amazing products that really suit my skin that you can’t just buy from the highstreet. Only down fall would be would be great if you had more options to tailor your box around shades but prompted or a reminder etc.

Absolutely love Glossy Box!!! For £10 a month + postage you get a variety of beauty products from well known brands, unknown brands and high end brands. Glossy Box is tailored to suit your needs so it can never be dissapointing. Delivery time is fantastic and comes presented in a gorgeous box that can be reused and made into other things. Their customer service is also brilliant and they get back to you within a few hours with a resolution to any problems you have. Can’t wait for next months!!!

Glossybox loveliness

By Lockettay

Glossybox helped me gain confidence in myself and introduced me to new beauty products I would never have bought. Each month you receive a selection of goodies usually 5 or 6 -ranging from makeup, hair products and beauty products. My go to selection has changed and grown since using the products from Glossybox! I love the monthly treat!

Glossybox lover!

By Nicole

When my friend told me about glossy box I thought it was too good to be true! 5 amazing goodies all packed away beautifully in a lovely box all for £10. I loved my first glossy box and haven’t looked back since. I have tried loads of new products that I would never have dreamt about buying. I love the fact you get a information card too telling you about the products. Best time of the month, receiving my little pink box full new products.

Love it!

By Anna-Marie

I LOVE Glossybox! It’s so nice to get a box of new things to try every month, things I’d never buy for myself because it’s so easy to buy the same things over and over. Most products come with a discount code so you can buy more, and the products are definitely worth more than you’re paying so it’s really good value.
It’s a little present every month from me, to me!

Glossybox is a brilliant way to find new brands and products! I love the surprise and getting to try so many new products that I wouldn’t ordinarily go out and buy on their own. Thoroughly recommend.

I have been subscribed to Glossybox for almost 2 years now and I love it. Its like a little present to yourself every month. There is always mutliple products I love and I have only once not been delighted. Even then I was happy just less so than usual. But overall in terms of value for money and quality I would highly recommend!

Best Box Yet!

By Aly Wolfe

I just received my limited edition Holiday Box from Glossybox and it was by far my favourite! It contained a mascara, kohl eyeliner, lipgloss (that lights up), beautiful eyeshadow and face palette, Nuxe oil (for hair or body), and nail polish. The beautiful, rose gold box was a definite plus!

I firstly do not know how this little box of heaven has not came into my life sooner. ???? After subscribing to glossybox I thought I would wait a good few weeks for it to come……wrong!!! Within days it was waiting on me returning after a rubbish day at work. Well it certainly put a smile on my face, I can tell you, and I couldn’t wait to open it. The box was gorgeous and it was wrapped so beautifully. The products inside…..Wow!! Three full sized products and two trial size, With a small family to look after and care for, I rarely treat myself, so this really felt as if someone was sending me a present. I love all the products and it by far exceeded my expectations. To be able to make me feel so happy, excited, good about myself all in one go it’s well worth the £10 plus small delivery charge. Well done glossybox. Can’t wait for the next one. ????????

Glossybox first timer

By Bianca

Glossybox was recommended to me by a friend and I couldn’t be happier. Everything that arrived was perfect for me. Beautiful high end products, a great chance to get out of my beauty routine and try new brands. It also came beautifully wrapped. I’ve already subscribed my sister and mum so that’s their Xmas pressie sorted xx

Love Glossy box ????

I receive glossy box once a month and love it! There’s always something in the box – you’ll really love and it’s a super nice treat for yourself too!

Perfect mixture!

By Bex

The value for money is amazing, they tell you the price of the items in each box. Last month was 5 full size items which would’ve cost me £67 plus p&p, so an incredible saving! Sometimes there are sample sizes, and obviously there will be items you don’t like, but they ask a lot of questions to try to get your box perfect 🙂
If you can afford it and enjoy trying out new beauty products, definitely give it a go!
