March’s Glambox

March 25, 2014

I’m not going to lie, I wasn’t completely satisfied with this month’s Glambox. Don’t get me wrong, coming home to a pink box of full sized products brings me an amazing feeling of joy. But this isn’t what went wrong this time.

This month, Glambox collaborated with Nivea. We all know and love Nivea for diverse reasons. For me, it’s the first beauty and skincare brand that I’ve been introduced to ever since I was a child. Throughout the years, I’ve realised that Nivea products are standard. When I need a lip balm or a body lotion that will provide me a good result, I would go for this brand.

However, I believe that this box wasn’t worth its price tag (but I have to be honest, this was sent to me – I didn’t pay for it). Of course, Glambox never fails at introducing new products – which is why I love this type of subscription so much. But I think that this concept should open doors to higher end brands (not necessarily the brands you find in Bloomingdales or Harvey Nichols) rather than brands that are easily accessible to all and already known by everyone.

Nevertheless, here are the products in the box:

1.  The very well known and classic Nivea Cream

2. Touch of Waterlily Shower Gel – very foamy and fresh

3. In-shower Body Moisturiser – love this! It was featured in my last favourites post

4. Invisible for Black & White Clear Roll-on

To complete my last argument, the only product that is unknown to me is the shower gel. Despite what was said above, all the products are full sized and are daily essentials which is actually quite nice. I guess it’s more of a “restocking essentials” rather than a “discovering new products” box.

Did you receive your March Glambox? What are your thoughts? Would love to know in the comments!

    I just received mine and had the same feeling.
    Kind of bummed out as there is nothing new or exciting that I have never tried before. At the same time at least all the products are useful so I guess it could be worse. Maybe also because I loved the Bliss box soo soo much this Nivea one seems a bit of a let down..

      I agree, I enjoyed the Bliss one a lot as well. But I can always get a good use out of these products..
