Last September, I blogged about Glamourbox...one of the sample box subscriptions in the country. I personally know some people behind Glamourbox and I was just too excited when I heard that they will be coming up with their own. Too bad, I wasn't able to attend the launch. To my surprise, not only did they send me my box, they had one of their investors personally hand it over to me! Fortunately, Mr. Kevin Moss works in the same office as me so he took time to personally go down to our department to give me my box. Now, that's what you call "personal touch!"
Their box is white with their pretty logo. It looks sophisticated, and well, it reminds me of my Apple iPad box.
Their packaging pretty much reminds you of a special gift. So imagine getting one like this every month if you subscribe.
For the November box, they have gathered the best products from the East to West
So what's inside?
Take a look:
Now, are these babies worth of your Ph595 subscription? Let's see.
OFRA Cosmetics Lipstick Palette, full-size
A playful array of clear, light pink, dark pink, burgundy, orange tone, light brown and dark brown shades to match any outfit
This baby alone already costs Php1050, and it's in full-size. A great way to keep those puckers in color while on the go.

Another full-sized baby in the box. By now I am pretty sure you already know that this box is really worth it. I'm a sucker for mascaras and this one's interesting. It's a beauty product and treatment in one!
Yves Rocher Slimming Action Concentrate sample
A complete slimming solution that employs the power of Green Coffee to smooth skin.Php1190 / 150ml
You only need a little for each use, so I am thinking you'd be able to see a bit of difference in the smoothing category after finishing this small tube. Of course, you need a whole lot more product to really check out it's slimming properties. Don't fret, as this box also comes with a Php200-worth gift card!
I've tried out a number of Yves Rocher products already and I can say that they are of high-quality in affordable prices. And they usually go on sale, so check them out!

This product should be used with the Shiseido Benefiance Softener. (You can visit Glamourbox for instructions on how to use this product)Php4150 / 12pcs
These babies remind me of my Mom, who loves Shiseido products. I am quite sure I've seen her use these in the past. And judging from her skin, I can say that Shiseido really works!
