GlossyBox September and GlossyBox Woman

Since I haven’t spoken about GlossyBox in a little while I thought it would be worth sharing the content of their new September box as well as introducing you to their new beauty subscription. 

 The September box is a Union Jack themed one with 5 tops british products stored inside. I’m not a huge fan of the box itself (Union Jack print has kind of been and gone, no?) but I love the cute tissue paper and think theres some great little products inside. There is a mini Dr Lipp Original Nipple Balm for the lips which is a favourite with most people and Eyelure Pre-glued lashes which are really wearable (and not like some of the horrible gold ones I have previously seen in beauty boxes). The other three products are items I have never tried; a Toni & Guy Limited Edition Shine Gloss Serum which is always useful and a Be a…Bombshell liquid eyeliner in Onyx which is super black. I was also super excited to see a HD Brows product but didn’t expect it to be a bronzer, I’m not too sure how a bronzer fits the brows category but I am very excited to try it.

I was particularly excited to receive the new GlossyBox Woman box which is a new addition to the GlossyBox family. I feel that GlossyBox has been looking for something new to add to their brand; they tried the male box and still currently have a MissGlossy box aimed at a younger audience but I’m not too sure there is enough money/interest in these two categories however this 40+ box is able to attract beauty lovers with a little more disposable income. Inside there are 5 products all aimed at an older age group meaning they are anti-aging and more hydrating which means that the subscriber knows they will only get something specific for them. It is a little more expensive however there are some really great products in this box at least as well as a magazine and I can see a woman of 40+ loving every product!

This months box’s edit includes a day and night cream from Lulu’s Timebomb, Redken color extend treatment spray, Comfort Zone Mask and in my opinion the stand out product is the Ole Henriksen serum (which is worth over £20!)

This box comes out every 8 weeks and costs £14 plus £2.95 packaging but I actually think it will be really successful as it appears to be really well thought through and I think it will probably get better reviews then the normal GlossyBox. It would make a perfect gift for a 40+ woman that loves beauty

What do you think of these boxes? What do you think of the new Glossybox Woman subscription?

    Thanks for the post! As someone who's never subscribed to a goody box, I'm always curious to see the insides 🙂 I haven't ordered any yet firstly, because I live in Denmark, secondly, I'm a bit hesitant to gather many products, because I'm afraid most of them won't get used. Someday, maybe (then the 40+ option will come in handy I guess, haha). I love the cheesy packaging, though 🙂 Maybe because I'm not British.

    I was surprised to see the Ole Henriksen serum in there – it's a Danish brand, so very well known here and pretty luxurious – the price range is rather high.

    I love the idea of gifting someone the Woman's box, but don't know, how it works. Can I give the subscription or can I just buy one box for the present?

    I've unsubscribed from glossybox once the hype was all over but i do check every month to see whats to offer. I would love to try the Nipple balm, as funny as it sounds~ I have read good reviews on this and i think my lips need some real TLC.

    Thanks for sharing what you got in your box 🙂 Have a great evening <3

    I only recently started getting a beauty box here in Aus and although I enjoy mine, I think that's mainly due to being a beauty blogger on a budget. I like to test before buying and this is a really fun way to get me out of my comfort zone and try new products. I do however think that my mum might not feel as excited about a beauty box. There will be 40+ women who love it, but I also know my mum has a tried and tested hair and skin care routine that she's found over the years that works for her. I think if it was make up only she might get excited, but then again, she's tried and tested most of that and it works. I'm not convinced about it's appeal to the older generation, but I'm sure it will surprise me and do extremely well!

    Is the new woman box available yet? Subscribe to glossybox but like the look of the woman one as I am 52 nd find some of the products a bit young for me. Cannot see the new box anywhere on their website.

    I think out of all the boxes around I would rather buy a birchbox than a glossybox. The products are more high end in birchbox but saying that I would love to try out the HD brow kit that came with your glossybox.

    After seeing this months box, I'm now gutted I've cancelled my subscription!! The contents look great. I also love the idea of the GlossyBox Woman, I know my Mum would love what's inside! xo
