Unboxing my November Glamourbox

Happy Monday everyone!  How was the long weekend for our Philippine based readers?  I had a lovely weekend spending time with my family and of course, I was back to doing makeup for the busy December month and I am so happy to get to prettify clients once again!  

If you are a beauty blog reader, you have definitely came across fellow beauty bloggers unboxing their November Glamourbox, well, as for me, I was a bit late but I'm still happy I get the chance to take a peek at the first box as I'm sure a lot of you are probably on "decision-making" stage on which beauty box subscription to purchase!  Isn't it nice to take a peek at other people's box and from there it is definitely easier to make a decision!

Glamourbox promised to bring beauty innovations from all over the map.  Once you subscribe, you will receive a gorgeous (reusable) box with five deluxe beauty samples from premium, boutique and niche brands delivered to your doorstep!  (Mine was delivered via Xend Express and I don't have any issues with this courier service.)

Okay, before all the babbling, let me share to you my Glamourbox November box!  Most of you probably knew the contents by heart but I'm glad there was a tiny bit of change in one of the product and it was a star product for me inside the box!

Housed in a gorgeous, very sturdy, white box that I plant o reuse to put my makeup or accessories inside my drawer.

At first glance I was overwhelmed with brands that I wasn't familiar with
 (considering I'm a beauty blogger and I do online research on beauty products --- a lot!) 

 What's inside the box?

  • Eye of Horus Mascara (Php1,290.00 Full size)
  • Shiseido Benefiance WrinkleResist 24 Night Cream (sample size)
  • Yves Rocher Slimming Action Concentrate (sample size)
  • Ofra Cosmetics Lipstick Palette (Php1,050 Full size)
  • Bvlgari Omnia Amethyste (sample size)
  • Calvin Klein Eternity Aqua (sample size)
  • Bvlgari Man (sample size)
  • Burberry Sport (sample size)
  • Bonus: 1 x Php200.00 off gift cert for Yves Rocher for every Php1,000 minimum purchase.
 Ofra Cosmetics Lipstick Palette (Full size)
 This brand is new to me.  Made in the USA with an array of clear, light pink, dark pink, burgundy, orange tone, light brown and dark brown shades to match any outfit or in my case, I prefer lip palettes with a lip brush for clients!

 Eye of Horus Mascara (full size)
This mascara is made in Taiwan and prides how they are naturally formulated int he style of the ancient Egyptians with plant based ingredients.
Yves Rocher Slimming Action Concentrate (sample size)
 Will not be able to use this for now but I'm sure my sister would love to use this anti-cellulite slimming solution with the power of green coffee to smooth and tone her skin!  I hope she likes it!

Shiseido Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Night Cream (Sample Size)
This is my ultimate favorite product in this box as I have tried Shiseido skincare products when I was working in Shenzhen years ago and because I'm on a tight budget so I had to purchase sample size of these in Bonjour and Sasa shops in Hong Kong!  This sample size costs around Php200-300 depends on conversion rate so the box is definitely worth it!

  1. the contents of your box are nice especially the product from Shiseido! :)

    1. I agree! Fave ko siya plus the lip palette! Excited to use them!

  2. think i am quite done with the idea of sample boxes. it can get annoying when the number of boxes keep growing ><

    1. hahah sister! I guess I'm still excited for now as beauty boxes just started in our country while you guys have it... for years? :D

  3. WOW! Sooo nice products! This box is really full of goodies!

    1. Hi Anastacia, I agree! I wonder if you have Beauty Box Subscriptions there in Korea?

  4. I've been seeing a rise in these sample boxes lately so I am intrigued. I wish I used more of these skincare but I'm more into going organic for me. If there was only a sample box catering to that preference... hmm!

    1. Ah I'll definitely let you know if I found something that caters to organic products! :) I don't think they'll have one that focuses on ALL Organic, it's usually a mix :D

  5. Are there any other subscriptions aside from Glamourbox and BDJ Box? I'm new to the subscription circuit. Thanks.

    1. There's also Saladbox, you can search how the box looks like by going to the "Label" SaladBox on the right hand side of this blog. Thanks
