A Saturday afternoon rant


Well, my glossy box did not arrive and I won't get one until next month, which if I'm being honest, I'm glad about as the June box looked rubbish! I also got an email from 'glossy box' saying they will now be charging £2.95 postage cost, yet didn't explain why they have taken money out my bank account in May but no box until July. Hmm, rant over.
Anyway, browsing to find an alternative to glossy box, I came across Boudoir Prive box which really looks promising. I thought I would share it with you guys (I bet I'm the last person to find this box huh lol). From what I have read each box contains 6 products rather than the glossy box 5 and the products range from body, make-up, lifestyle and more. I have even got the impression that the Boudoir Prive box will be a little more prestigious as well so it's ideal for us classy ladies. And finally, it only costs £10.00 a month!!

  1. Oh, so sorry you won't be getting your box until next month! I wonder why they did that :/ The boxes you've mentioned seem to be exclusive to the U.K., I believe. In America, we have a version of it called Birchbox lol I think it's the same idea :) Thank you for sharing!

  3. I have heard about the birch box, they look pretty good.

    I'm going to phone glossybox on Monday. I love complaining so I will enjoy my phone call to them lol

  4. Oooh let us know what they said. To be honest I've sort of missed the whole box ordeal/wonder. I feared glossybox were trying to use the nars product last time as a sweetner and it seems I was right.
    I'm so cynical and think the same of the Boudoir Prive, especially if they're including "lifestyle" products.

  5. Think you have hit the nail on the head Eloise. I actually think they did do that. The NARS item was what made me want to try the box.

  6. Did you call glossybox? Hope you got on okay. They definitely should throw in an extra something for that! x

  7. I emailed them Sunday and they replied today. Said because I ordered it too late I have to wait until July. The last boxes were posted on the 20th of may and I placed my order on the 24th of may. Im kinda a bit pissed off about it all. It seems a bit poor organisation on there behalf I think. Has anyone else had problems with glossybox, and have you noticed the abuse they have been getting on face book lol.

  8. Thought I did comment, but maybe I forgot. But I was gonna say that it's outrageous that they're now charging extra (even if they claim it's for postage) when I've seen many people complaining about the most recent box.
    Boudoir Prive does look more exclusive, so much so I can't even get an invite haha. Still, if the first box is usually the best, I wouldn't mind trying
