Glamourbox February: Romantic Beauty

After two failed attempts to subscribe to Glamourbox, I finally got my chance when they opened limited slots for the February box a couple of weeks ago! I set my alarm to make sure I won't forget, then gladly paid the P595 fee for one month.

Last Monday, a package arrived for me in the office while I was working on my calendars. It's my Glamourbox! Hooray!

Plus points for the sturdy and reusable box!
I'm sure most of my blog readers do not need any introduction, but for the uninitiated, Glamourbox is basically a beauty subscription service. You have the option to buy a monthly plan or a quarterly plan (personally I prefer the quarterly plan because of the many additional freebies they get, but unfortunately I didn't have enough credits in my card anymore ha ha), and for every month you are subscribed you get at least five deluxe samples in a curated box sent to your doorstep. Glamourbox's goal is to make sure you get at least double the price of what you paid for, and from what I've seen from all the boxes they have sent out since they started, they have really delivered. For me though, the best thing about it is the element of surprise; you never know what you're going to get so it's kinda like receiving a surprise birthday gift every month!

There is a theme for each month. For February, the theme is Romantic Beauty in keeping with the Hallmark holiday. Here are the contents:



KJI & Co Emergency Lash RX | Full size 2ml - P1,350
I already have long and thick eyelashes to begin with so I don't know if I'm going to use this or give it away. I mean, it would be great to have lashes thick and dramatic enough to not need mascara anymore, but then again I don't want to deal with freakishly long lashes in case this really delivers!

Carmex | Jar 7.5g - P109.75
I am embarrassed to admit this, but it is actually my first time to use Carmex LOL. I only ever used Chapstick, Nivea, and Blistex before. Still, it's always good to have lots of lip balm choices, right? I tried this today and I totally loved how it soothed my lips. Definitely bringing this with me everywhere, every day.

Snoe Oil for All Argan Oil | Full size 25ml - P799
It'll be my first time to try this as well, and I am excited to do so after hearing Kira sing praises for this supposed "liquid gold" that is said to heal dry skin, prevent acne breakout, and reduce marks and fine lines.

The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Cream | Full size 50ml - P695
I love The Body Shop and their lotions so I was thrilled to get these samples, mostly because we are going to the beach this weekend and I intend to pack light.

Calvin Klein Beauty | Full size 100ml - P5,498
I haven't sniffed this scent yet but the description says it is "sophisticated, confident, and radiant." They are not three words that can easily describe me, so I'm not sure what my feelings for this scent will be after a while.

Coupon code for Wild Peach
Coupon code for Cuzo
I'm not sure if I can use these as I don't have that much makeup, and I also want to hold off on buying a new bag, at least until the second half of the year... but we'll see.

Now this is a special treat that I received based on the beauty profile I filled out when I signed up for Glamourbox:

Kerastase Fluide Oleo Relax | Full size 150ml - P1,536
Not everyone got this so I feel extremely lucky, especially because I have been using the exact product for a while now! I love it on my hair! It's also very economical because one to two drops is enough; it has been three months yet I've used only just a quarter of my 50ml bottle! I'm sure it will still be a long, long, long time from now, but I am willing to buy a bottle once my stash runs out.

There you go. :) I'm not sure if I will get the March box because I am trying to curb my spending, but I'll definitely watch out for the April box, just because it's my birthmonth!

I tried to subscribe because I thought that everything is worth it for just roughly around 600 pesos but then the feb box i already sold out. :( Might try it next month.

I wouldn't bother subscribing to Glamourbox again. The Jan box wasn't even worth it, and the Feb box seems to have been hastily put together and arbitrarily distributed. Some subscribers, like me, didn't get the Kerastase product. That's one of the best products from this month missing, when we all paid the same amount. And Glamourbox does not even compare to BDJ box anymore, whose subscribers got thousands of pesos worth of Shiseido products this Feb.. like here http://writingismyhappyplace.wordpress.com/2013/02/18/unboxing-feb-bdj-box/ (not my blog)
