Glamourbox: March 2013

You may or may not know this about me but I quite like (read: love) to shop online. Back when I was in Jakarta I usually go to ASOS for bags, shoes and other accessories, and I join these forums and communities where everything is done in these three steps: choose, click, pay. I usually get the little things, from cosmetics to imported nail polish, to K-pop albums and whatnot. I even ordered this Japanese magazine from HMV Japan. Never thought it would reach me, but it did.

I thought I’d be robbed off this convenience here in Cebu but it turns out, the convenience to shop online in the Philippines is just as easy. I don’t usually post here–sorry for the laziness–but I’ve bought stuff from Lazada (a phone and earphones to name a few), and so many other online stores.

Not until few months ago where I was introduced to sample subscriptions by a friend. Basically you pay a small price (sometimes you don’t pay at all) to try sample a few things. Being the girl I that I am, this is something I’m super open to. It’s crazy. I’d get into it in a heartbeat. Bargain and convenience are my best words when it comes to shopping.

I’ve had quite a few samples delivered to me via and I’ve been happy with the results so far. I only have to pay less than $2 for shipping since I don’t live in the capital but it’s all been good.

I’ve been wanting to try Glamourbox out since late last year. The problem is, every time I try to sign up I never make it on time to register for the latest box coz it’s always sold out. Last month I finally got the slot to get the March 2013 and I was super excited.

The box arrived today. Sorry for the photos! Took them with a 50mm lens at 12 midnight in less than 3 minutes.


The Box!









Samples I received:

  • HeyNature BB Creams (4 sachets)
  • HeyNature Aqua Brightening Gel (1 sachet)
  • Pevonia Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser (5ml)
  • Avon Glutathione Lotion (2 50ml bottles)
  • YSL Saharienne perfume vial (1.5ml)
  • Ralph Lauren Big Pony 3 perfume vial (1.5ml)
  • SureSlim Wellness Centre Php2000 gift voucher
  • Travalo Refillable Perfume Spray 10% off coupon
  • Eye of Horus Natural Smokey Eye Pencil (full-sized, valued at Php 960)

Truth to be told when I first opened the box and only found 2 cosmetic items I was a little bit eh. The Smokey Eye Pencil is probably the best product out of all, not only because it’s full-sized (super added plus!) but it’s something that I would use the most compared to the others. I use BB Cream almost daily and I’m so attached to my brand that I sort of don’t want to try others anymore, but this actually got me pretty excited.  Then I started smelling the perfumes and they smell really good. I’m curious to try the Pevonia cleanser and Avon Lotion is really handy for my overseas trip this Saturday.

Will I subscribe to another Glamourbox? Won’t say I won’t, but I’ll probably give the other boxes a try too (BDJ, Sandbox). As I type this, I’m actually getting a BDJ subscription already.. help.
