It’s not often you get a PR email from a company with the subject ‘Basic Bitch’, but that’s what happened with Glossybox this month. At first, I thought they were insulting me but once I read the email, I realised they were referring to the box … May’s box is full of basics – staple products that every beauty lover needs in their life. This is the kind of basic bitch that I have time for.
I was sent the box for PR purposes and I am a Glossybox affiliate, but all views are my own.
I have a wishlist as long as your arm of high-end products that I would really like, no make that need, in my life and one of these is Creme De La Mer. Mick did offer to buy me some for Christmas, but it is so expensive that I said no *sob*. I have tried a couple of La Mer products before as a friend sent me some samples and I loved it, but I resigned myself to the fact that it was just out of my price range *more sobs*. Then along came the clever little buggers at Glossybox who have teamed up with La Mer for what I can only describe as my box of dreams.
The box cost £35.00 for Glossy subscribers, or £40.00 for non-subscribers and it sold out so fast – luckily, I was faster than Usain Bolt and managed to get my paws on not one, but two of the boxes. Now before you think that I’m a greedy cow, I had heard that the samples were quite small, so I figured having two of everything would give me more of a chance to really test them … that’s my justification and I am sticking to it.
We all know that I’m partial to a the odd beauty box or 2, and when there’s one crammed full of Clinique goodies … well I’ve died and gone to heaven. Jane, from The British Beauty Blogger, has created her edit for Latest In Beauty. This is the second one of these she has done, and I can’t wait for the third. Sadly, the box sold out VERY quickly, but the products inside are well worth buying individually. For £20.00, this is one of the best boxes I have ever received.
