LBS Beauty: My First Glossybox

A few weeks ago I had the privilege of uncovering my very first Glossybox! For those of you who don't know, Glossybox is the global leader in beauty boxes. Each month, they send a beauty box to your home, including five of the latest and most exciting beauty products from around the world. Before this month, Glossybox had only been available in the UK and select other countries but now they're officially shipping to the US! If you've ever heard of Birchbox, this is similar but Glossybox's products are more high end. Check it out:

First off, the packaging is simply delightful. I'm very much a "packaging is everything" type of girl so when I opened the box, I gasped! So amaze!

In each Glossybox is a really cute postcard thanking you for subscribing and also a list of all the cool products in the box. They also included a "Trend Guide" which was really cool because it explained all the amazing trends in different parts of the world. From Greece to South Africa to Japan. I loved it.

Whoop! Full size products! Can you believe? Are you gagging like I was? Inside my box were samples from Erno Laszio, C.O. Bigelow shampoo, Cargo EyeBronzer, Kryolan High Gloss Lip Shine, OPI nail lacquer and Basq eye gel. Fun!

I'm excited to give these products a try. I'll make sure to post reviews of my favorites. If you're a beauty junkie interested in signing up to receive Glossybox, subscriptions start at $21/month. Go to Glossybox.com for more information.


Today from 3PM-4PM EST I'll be co-hosting a Twitter party with the Glossybox folks. Make sure you're following me @LoveBrownSugar and @Glossybox_US to participate in the chat. Today is all about hair! Send me your hair questions via Twitter with the hashtag #GLOSSYchat - can't wait to tweet you guys!
