I first knew about the beauty box concept from my favourite bloggers in the UK. Luckily for me, when I googled "beauty boxes in Australia", I found that they existed here too! 

I love receiving pretty parcels in the post and I also love beauty products. While I know I can just order things online there's something so predictable about that. I mean, you choose the product, wait by the mailbox and hopefully you receive the same product you paid for. Glossybox is like having a present sent to your door every single month. Filled with sample sizes of some big-name products, it's essentially a try-before-you-buy concept. 

You don't know what you're going to get but the chances are there'll be something in there you never even knew existed, you fall in love immediately and live happily ever after in beauty heaven... Here's a pictorial of my first Glossybox delivery:

Well, well, well... What have we here? The theme for this month's box was all about maintaining "a fresh and vibrant look with an active lifestyle" and the products in my box included:

Klorane Dry Shampoo, The Body Shop Chocomania Body Butter, Avene Cleanser and Toner, Thin Lizzy Concealer, Power Balance wrist band and a $10 discount voucher from Zanui. What got me excited? The Avene products (gotta love the French skincare stuff) and the Thin Lizzy Concealer. I've never tried either before but I've heard great things about both. I'm a big fan of dry shampoos and I've been a repeat purchaser of Klorane so big ticks there.

Will I keep subscribing? Yeah, why not? I'm hopeful that as subscriptions increase, we might get more exciting samples (you should see the stuff they get in the UK!!!) Plus I'm enjoying getting to try things I normally wouldn't go out of my way to sample. If you'd like to receive goodies every month from Glossybox, Aussies can check them out here, US and UK here.


  1. OMG I can't wait for glossy box to come to the USA :)

    1. I can just imagine the brilliant products you guys might get - Australia doesn't have anywhere near the range the US does!
      PS great blog!

  2. I too have seen bloggers blog about this & I want to start getting it soooooo badly!! I'm so happy you've begun to receive them, I look forward to seeing what other surprises you get!
