Heard of the expression “little bundle of joy”….well Glamabox is a little box of joy 🙂 After my first box from them I have gotten hooked to them so bad (in a good way of course) that I need to get them every month. And it goes without saying that my December box is on its way too. Not only that my friend Dolon of Poutpretty is a convert and even her December one is on the way after she experienced the pleasures of the November one. So without much chitter chatter lets just unbox it.
There was a gorgeous lime colored wrapping paper inside which I just had to share with you all. 1 coupon was included this time but I have no idea what is the offer on it 😛 There are 6 different brands with an item count of 7 and 1 full sized product. All for around 1400 bucks (INR) including shipping which is not bad at all. Again mainly skincare with one makeup product which is a CC cream.
Prodigy Advanced Skin Lightening Face Cream
This is the full sized product in the box which is 30 ml. This is a USA company. I can hear a lot of people screaming and running for the hills on hearing the word “lightening”. But it is not to be confused with our “fairness” lotion. Such products are meant to bring an evenness and luminosity to one’s complexion and not make it a few tones lighter. Hopefully it will live up to its claim. Price of full sized product is HKD 528 (Rs. 4249/- approx).
Elishacoy Always Nuddy CC Cream
This is the only makeup product in the box. Elishacoy is a famous Korean brand. I came across them in an exhibition I attended earlier this year and bought a couple of things from them out of which this CC cream was one 🙂 Yes I didn’t get around reviewing it yet I know. But it will be up – eventually. It is supposed to provide 10 functions in this 1 product from whitening to makeup solution. I will cover these in greater detail when I put up the full review. The size of the sample is 5 ml. Price of the full sized product (50 gms) is HKD 398 (Rs. 3203/- approx).
Kamill Classic Hand Cream
This is all the way from Germany. It contains chamomile extract and is supposed to make your hands smooth as silk. Sounds quite promising. There is a pleasant fragrance to it which is soothing in a way. Hopefully this works as I usually find myself reaching for a hand cream again and again especially during winters. Size of the sample is 30 ml and price of full sized (100 ml) product is HKD 29.90 (Rs. 241/- approx).
Dr. Ci:Labo Aqua-Collagen Gel Enrich Lift Ex
& Super Moisture Ex
This is a Japanese brand. The creams are supposed to rejuvenate the skin from deep within. They are supposed to be paraben-free, artificial color/fragrance-free and mineral oil-free. Both are 10 gm tubs and the price for full sized products (50 gms) are HKD 450 (Rs. 3622/- approx) for Enrich Lift Ex and HKD 400 (Rs. 3219/- approx) for Super Moisture Ex.
Bijoux Hand Spa Wet Wipe
Another Japanese brand. This wet wipe has a virus block function and provides a nourishing and moisturizing effect. Quite an indulgent item dont you think 🙂 They have not mentioned if you get it in a box set or individual pieces. They have mentioned a price of HKD 15 (Rs. 121/- approx) which Im guessing is the price of one sheet. Wow! Imagine rubbing your hand on 120 bucks and tossing it away?!? Does it as a product make sense to you?
L&P Pumpkin Ade Mask
This is from a Korean brand. The packing is super cute. I love the attention the pay to small details. This is a sheet mask and I will be trying is asap. Expect a review on it in a day or so. It is meant to delay aging and provide elasticity to the skin among other things. Price for 1 sheet is HKD 15 (Rs. 121/- approx). Ok for me this still makes sense coz my skin will be absorbing something. One can argue that the wet wipe will technically be doing the same but it somehow does not feel so right. Well let me use the wipe first before dissecting it further. Who knows maybe it might be worth it (???).
And that was the lineup for November. Again a very interesting mix of stuff. They have repeated their box design for the 3rd time but I don’t mind it as it is so very pretty. They have said that the December one will be different and I cant wait to see what all they will include in it. Hopefully it will be something special given it is the holiday box. So what do you guys think about? Tempted to get your own yet?
