Glambox Middle East – My 3 Month Subscription

Glambox Middle East – My 3 Month Subscription

Hey everyone!
I hope you’ve all been doing well. This post is about something super interesting and quite unique to everyone living in the gulf, well at least for me. Recently, Dubai was home to a new, scheme, you could say, called the Glambox Middle East, I only heard about it here on EMBB. Now for those of you totally confused by those 3 words, let me break it down for you. Glambox is basically an scheme which lets you have a beautifully packaged box delivered to your doorstep every month filled with 4-5 deluxe sized samples, and in my experience sometimes even full sized products from luxury beauty and makeup brands all for the very economically price of 50 dhs a month. But is it worth your time and money or just another one of those attractive but useless offers? Read on to find out.

A little more about glambox
Glambox has been operating in many countries like New Zealand, Greenland etc for quite a while now but it started in the UAE just this January. They do plan on expanding to the Middle East soon so keep your fingers crossed. The glambox comes with three subscription offers, 150 dhs for 3 months, 300 dhs for 6 months as well as 550 dhs for 12 months where as you might have noticed you get a month free. It also has another aspect called glam points which you collect by giving your reviews about the products in the box and even by just subscribing. As you collect 500 glam points you get 50 dhs off any product or subscription on the website. I subscribed for the three month package just to get an idea of everything before going for the entire year subscription. When you subscribe, there is a beauty profile quiz that you are required to complete and it is said they try and pick personalized items according to your beauty profile but I haven’t really noticed anything like that in my glambox yet. They say you can expect your package by the 15th of each month however I would say expect it to be there by the end of the third week of the month. The samples they provide are quite decently sized and they do provide full size products sometimes as well. Until now, I have to say I am pretty pleased with the glambox that I have received.

There was a slight delay for me when I was receiving my January glambox however I did leave a question on their facebook page and the team got back to me and answered my query very soon, hence very good service from their side. I received the box in a bright pink hardboard packaging and card telling whats inside the glambox along with the price of each of the full size products. Here is what I received in the January glambox.

1. Kiehls crème de corps
2. Elizabeth Arden Ceramide ultra lipstick in ‘peony’.
3. Mon Parfum by M.Micallef
4. Lancome vissionaire
5. Elizabeth Arden all gone eye and lip makeup remover.

Overall I was pretty pleased with everything and the net total cost of the entire box with the sample products was way more than the 50 dhs I paid so I was all smiles.

February glambox
I think I’d say I loved the February box quite a lot more than the January one since they had a little surprise for Valentine’s Day. Along with the usual sample beauty and makeup products, they had a voucher for a box of mini cupcakes at sweet stuff Jumeirah which I personally enjoyed. Anyways here is a run through of the February box contents.

1. Elizabeth Arden mini face brush.
2. Elizabeth Arden pure finish mineral powder foundation.
3. Peppermint and avocado volumizing and clarifying shampoo by Philip.B
4. Light weight deep conditioning crème rinse by Philip.B.
5. Elizabeth Arden red door perfume.
6. Karuna wood pulp moisturizing face mask.(not in picture)
7. Nail glitz acrylic nail (not in picture)
8. Voucher from Sweet Stuff bakery for 6 free mini cupcakes and 20%off next order.(not in picture)

I really enjoyed that particular glambox since the powder foundation was perfect match for my skin tone and the other products were pretty useful as well.

March Glambox
The March glambox for me was by far the best. I got a couple of pretty large sized products along with a full sized nail polish as well. Take a look at the products

1. Vichy laboratories thermal spa water.
2. Vichy laboratories protective sun cream with SPF 50+.
3. Elizabeth Arden ceramide gold ultra restorative capsules.
4. Flower bomb by viktor&rolf perfume.
5. Nstyle nail lounge nail polish in ‘poetic petra’.
6. Miriamquevedo luxe anti aging hair mask.

The march glambox was also quite interesting for me since it gave me a chance to try out products from some brands I had never even heard of until now.

All in all I am definitely going to re subscribe soon to the glambox Middle East and probably for a year this time since it makes most sense. I absolutely recommend subscribing to it if you’re interested since it’s a total value for money and gives you the opportunity to try out new stuff.
