I found an interesting company that allows one to test luxury beauty products without breaking the bank.
It’s been difficult to keep up with all the beauty products and brands launching in India. And for me, it’s been equally difficult to get to the store (don’t we all love traffic?) and spend the time trying stuff and figuring out what I like. I really can’t buy a 3,000 Rs cream after 5 seconds of trying it in the store. Not that I haven’t 😉
I stumbled upon www.blisscovered.com yesterday, and it promises to home deliver (all over India!) beauty samples (skin, hair, bath&body, etc.) that can be tested out at home over a period of time. The best part is that if you like one of the products, you can order the full size online. I just ordered their January box of samples, and I’m excited to see what’s in there! Based on their website, they’ve apparently tied up with Lancome, Kiehl’s and Make Up Forever (LOVE!) among a few others (but I’m hoping one these are definitely in my first box). It also doesn’t look like they send you sachets from their pictures– so I’m expecting a little box of pretty bottles. It also appears that they throw in a Rs. 200-300 voucher.
When you sign up, you fill out a ‘beauty profile’ – essentially a questionnaire that asks you what kind of products you like/don’t like and a few other questions about your skin/hair/allergies – presumably the box they throw together is based on this. So yes, it’s customized. Signing up was also surprisingly painless – just went to www.blisscovered.com and followed the instructions. It looks pretty promising – I’m excited to see what my box looks like!
