Review: March 2014 Glambox!

Hello everyone!

I was so excited to know that the March Glambox was completely dedicated to Nivea, which is one of my favorite brands.

Blogpix 026It has a Nivea sticker on it. On opening, you will find that everything is so neatly and carefully arranged.

Unwrapping the ribbon (which itself bears the Nivea logo), you will find these three things:

Blogpix 021

  • A 4ml sample of Nivea’s latest product, Natural Fairness day cream with SPF 30, which promises 10X fairer skin in 10 days. It has Vitamin C derivative (which helps inhibit melanin production for fairer skin), Hydra IQ (which keeps skin intensely moisturized) and Licorice extract (which acts as an anti-oxidant that also helps inhibit melanin production for a glowing even skin tone). Price of  this cream (for full size – 50ml) is AED 36.
  • A voucher from Right Bite which entitles the holder to avail 15% discount on their full package – 20 days, plus an initial nutrition consultation!
  • A beauty tip card which Glambox includes with every box. It gives one important tip on one side (this card highlighted the importance of moisturizing) and on the other, lists the contents of the box and it’s prices.

Then inside the box, I was so delighted to find four FULL SIZED Nivea products!. Here they are:

  • Nivea Creme : Who doesn’t love Nivea’s signature cream?. I am sure everyone associates this cream with their childhood!. I just loved the little tin with the hearts on it. This is a special edition produced for the occasion of Mother’s day. For that same reason, I gifted this to my mom along with her Mother’s day gift!. She adored it ♥. This product which contains 60ml is priced at AED4.60.
  • Nivea Waterlily & Oil shower gel : This smells so heavenly! It refreshes your senses with the light, feminine scent of water lily, while the silky fresh gel with pampering oil pearls turns into soft, caring foam – for the unique sensation of fresh, well-cared skin. The oil pearls are tiny yellow pearls suspended in the pink waterlily scented gel. It’s pretty to look at and amazing to feel. Love it!. This 250 ml product is priced at AED12.50.
  • Nivea In-shower body moisturizer : I am so glad that this is included in this box. I already have a backup of this product but now I don’t have to buy this one for a while!. Click here to read my full review, with photos and all. This is one genius product you have got to try!. Price of the 250ml bottle is AED 13.90.
  • Nivea Invisible for Black & White Clear Roll-On : This antiperspirant with 24 hours protection, truly doesn’t leave white marks on dark fabrics or yellow stains on white clothes. I took this with me when I traveled recently. It’s the perfect size!. It has a really elegant, refreshing smell that lingers on for a while. Price of the 50ml bottle is AED10.50.

Introduction and review: Glambox!

Hello you guys!

I am totally in love with the concept of Glambox. So, what is Glambox?. It is a subscription box filled with skincare/cosmetic products, which is delivered to you every month. Consumers like us are overwhelmed by the number of products available in the market. You might want to try out a cream but pass it up simply because it’s too expensive. But what if you got a sample of it, which helps you determine whether it works wonders for you or not?. This helps you save a lot of money by not making mistakes while purchasing such products. That is the very purpose of Glambox.

On to the review :

Let me first tell you, I fell in love with the packaging from the get go. It’s very thoughtfully done. The box itself is a pretty pink one!

Blogpix 011

When you open it, you will see a beautiful box inside. It’s simplicity is so attractive. It has a pearlescent color with the Glambox logo printed in the middle. Then further on, you will find there a pretty ribbon which ties together all the products within. I can see that great care has been taken to make sure it looks creative, neat and remains damage free (from the transportation).

Here are all the products. Oh isn’t it like unwrapping a giftbox every month? 🙂

Blogpix 015

Here is the list of products (the price indicated in the brackets against some of the products, is the price of it’s full sized version, available on Glambox’s website or generally on other online sites/in physical stores) and mini reviews (as I have been using these for nearly a month now):

  • Alien Essence Absolue (a Thierry Mugler perfume worth AED 424 for 60ml) : I love the Thierry Mugler perfume called Angel. I never knew about a perfume called Alien from this brand. All I can say is, I am a fan of it now. It’s scent is woody aromatic and sensual I felt. The sample in the box is a miniature glass bottle containing 6ml and perfect to pop into your handbag.

Blogpix 024

  • Cellular Elixir serum (by Lancaster) – This is a serum intended for youth prolongation and works against wrinkles and dull complexion. I really liked it. It gets absorbed within seconds and is easy to massage into your face. It has the slightest bit of shimmer in it. So, it gives a beautiful glow, when applied. The sample in the box is a tube containing 3ml.

Blogpix 022

  • Handmade soap (by Herbal Home Boutique) – I adore handmade soaps, because it’s an art. So, I was really glad that it was included in the box I got. The sample is good enough to use for more than  a month. It’s scent is citrus like/lemony. It’s really refreshing and lathers just the right amount. Here is the front and back of the soap.

  • Cucumber & Rose Water Skin Tonic (by Herbline Essentials, priced at AED105 for 120ml) – I really loved this toner. It comes in a bottle with a pump, which is very convenient. I will review it later in another post because I have another Herbline Essentials product to review too. Stay tuned. UPDATE (16th March 2014): Click here to read the detailed review of this tonic and Nourishment cream from Herbline Essentials. By the way, the sample in the box contains 30ml, which is a really good size.

Blogpix 009

  • Sensibio H2O (by Bioderma) – This is a makeup remover/cleanser perfect for even sensitive skin and can be used around eye area too. I have read rave reviews of this product and couldn’t believe my luck finding a 100ml bottle in this box!. That is a travel sized bottle which costs AED33 by itself. I love this product. Removing makeup is so easy with it. Even heavy makeup comes off in a jiffy. I highly recommend this one!

Blogpix 023

  • Teint Visionnaire (by Lancome) – This is a skin perfecting makeup duo which contains a high coverage precision corrector and a sheer perfecting foundation. It’s oil free. I haven’t tried this yet because I think the shade included in the box is not suitable for me. I might pass this sample to someone else!. It contains 0.14ml.

Blogpix 026

I am really happy with the products in this box. One minus I can think of about Glambox is that, though you can be absolutely delighted by the products you get, there might be a slight chance that you can equally be disappointed by some of the products. Say, if I find a nail polish in my box, I won’t really be happy because I don’t wear nail polish ever. But other than that, Glambox is an amazing concept. Also have you seen the list of brands they have partnered with?. With such an array of stunning brands, you will always have something special to look forward to!
