GlamBox is a ‘try before you buy’ online service for cosmetic samples, make up and beauty products. As someone who never has time to for these things, all the beauty products I own are months/years old. I read somewhere that mascara should be thrown out every 6 months. Oops.

So I took the plunge and signed up for a 3 month subscription with GlamBox – enough time to decide if I like it or not without feeling tied down to it like a cellphone contract. I also love the idea that you can sample products without making any effort to go out and buy it. Score!

I received my first box today and loved the packaging, as well as the contents, which were:

> Elizabeth Arden Ceramide gold ultra restorative capsules
> Catrice brown eyeliner pencil
> Skin Science rejuvenating enzyme exfoliator
> Hugo Boss Orange fragrance
> SoyLites massage candle
> Rimmel glam eyes Day2Night mascara

I’m happy with my first box, and definitely worth the R100 a month. If you’re interested in signing up (and feeling like it’s your birthday every month with each delivery), check out their website at www.glambox.co.za
