First Experience with Globox Subscription | Februay 2017 | Revamped Packaging

Greetings Readers😊😊

We all love saving money onto various things and subscription boxes are one of the means to invest a small amount of your pocket money/salary upon personal grooming. In a minimal charge, you get to try different brands and hoard as much of samples/full size products which you never include in your shopping cart for its price.

I’ve been ordering FabBag from a long time ago but I craved for trying out something new. And to my luck, Globox just came out with its new revamped box. In case you know my habit of stocking all possible cute boxes and containers, you’d know I’d save this one as well! πŸ˜ƒ


PACKAGING:

Now a lot of the subscription boxes send out different kind of bags which might work well for organisation purpose but doesn’t appear too fancy to actually be used as a pouch to showcase. Other time, I always fail to receive that bag which I have had my eyes upon; which again makes you feel disheartened. Perhaps this is why I was happy to receive simply a box which look pretty in case you intend to store things from your vanity in there. Because while placing your order, you never raise your expectations of getting a pouch and end up getting something you're never gonna use. Well, psychological issues! πŸ˜…πŸ˜†

Black, white & pink are the colors employed in the February 2017 Globox. It comes with magnet on its flap which makes it convenient for opening & closure of the same. All the content/products have been placed amid thin paper strips; carefully bubble wrapped. Also, a butter paper can be seen encompassing & holding together everything, with a Globox sticker on it.

WHAT I RECEIVED:


         1)      Bio Bloom hair Cleanser                                                         [Hair fall] – INR 699
         2)      Stay Quirky nail Polish Sand Effect TGIF Dance       [Light Makeup] – INR 220
         3)      Soulflower Charcoal Soap                                       [Skin Nourishment] – INR 250
         4)      MUA Pressed Powder Shade 1                                           [Oil Control] – INR 270
         5)      Tea Treasure Sleep Solves Everything                       [Beauty Wellness] – INR 150

                     Total Amount spent on Purchase of this month’s Box – INR 999
              Net Worth received – INR 1,589
                                                  This month’s savings – INR 590

# There were also few coupons cards, info – pamphlets and a hand – written note from the founder  - Jyoti Rani.


 THOUGHTS UPON PRODUCTS RECEIVED:


1)    Bio Bloom Hair Cleanser: Recently, I’ve heard a lot about this brand. One thing which makes me sceptical with the fact that it provides nourishment and I always prefer my shampoo to have no conditioning properties. For the price, the amount of product is definitely less but let’s see how it would fare.



2)    Stay Quirky Nail Polish Sand Effect TGIF Dance: I remember while filling online form created by Globox, they asked about much makeup I generally prefer and I chose light. I saw online what other Bloggers/YouTubers received and I guess I should have selected medium or high makeup. I’m not really a nail paint lover so it isn’t too overwhelming. Can’t say exactly about sand effect as I haven’t swatched it as of now but I assume there’s gonna be some texture. This color is really pretty and can be described as pale pink.


3)    Soulflower Charcoal Soap: Not one of those who likes to try out organic soaps but the word charcoal makes me expect; I might love it! The box had a beautiful fragrance lingering on because of it.


4)      Mua Pressed Powder Shade 1: While filing the beauty profile, I mentioned about my skin being oily and prone to acne. Therefore, by Expert’s recommendation, I was sent this pressed powder. The packaging is pretty sleek. I tried to take its swatch and realized that the formulation is buttery smooth. But I disliked the fact that it comes no brush or powder puff, which makes me rethink about adding it into my college bag.



5)      Tea Treasure Sleep Solves Everything: I have tough times sleeping when my mind works excessively at night, thinking about various deadlines and internal exams. And the next morning, I am dozing off at every place possible!πŸ˜‚ I guess this lavender tea will be my companion on such days.

FINAL VERDICT: I really enjoyed this subscription box as it caters full size products & 2 makeup items. One thing which I came around is that the original box was priced at INR 799 and raising price for revamped box is kinda disappointing.

RATING – 4 out of 5


Until Next Time,

Take Care <3

MamaEarth: Shampoo + Conditioner Review | Happy Heads & No More Tangles

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨
We all love our tresses! In order to sustain a healthy crown of hair, we keep on hunting for homemade DIY recipes or a shampoo that resolves the prolonged hair fall problem. Is it merely me who has been seeing a lot of hair fall since a year or two? I’ve altered my shampoo to figure out what is the actual cause for the same and it appears as if the inherent genes and my eating pattern is what causes a lot of shedding of hair. Recently, I tried the Mamaearth’s shampoo and conditioner duo which I believe was the part of their Anti-Hair Fall kit which is priced at INR 999. The kit intrigued me a lot and I’m glad I got to try out two products from that kit so that I don’t end up spending a thousand bucks. If you’re wondering how these products fared for me, stay tuned and keep on reading!

Jeju Volcanic Lava Self-Heating Clay Mask - Review

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨

Apparently, there are lots on skincare brands which are available internationally and I’m yet to try them out. Some of these brands, enclosed within my wish list include The Body Shop, The Faces Shop, Clinique, etc. Thankfully, Nykaa was running an offer on The Faces Shop skincare range wherein you could grab a full-sized freebie product. While I was surfing the catalogue, I encountered the “self-heating” mask which kept me intrigued enough to add it to my cart. I kid you not, there have been times when I’ve legit done window shopping online as well! πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜„ I see trillion of things and later I’m like – “Do I really need this?”
And the mind always answers – “Of course not, girl!” πŸ˜‚
A lot of the times, I force myself to hear the sensible talk of my mind. But sometimes, the heart takes over and it springs in joy to say “Woah! That’s too pristine to be denied”. This is exactly how I ended up purchasing Jeju Volcanic Lava Self-Heating Clay Mask

Fab Bag August 2018 "Own the Glam" Unboxing & Review

Surprise is the greatest gift which life can grant us.
Do you like surprises? I bet, you can’t say no to that.
Surprises are one of those quickest means of breaking the monotonous patterns of our lives. When I come back home from work, finding a courier onto my bedside table is what pumps up my excitement level. And this is exactly what happened on the evening of 31st of July. I kinda had a hunch that I’d receive my fab bag earlier this month, but getting it before the month actually starts, feels amazing! So without more jibber-jabber, let’s begin with the Fab BagAugust 2018unboxing.

Theme of the Month: Own the Glam When I think of the phrase “own the glam”, my mind draws an imagery of a glamorous girl. Therefore, I interlinked the theme with my expectations of having makeup products.
The Process of Product Selection: As expected, we have one of star products from the brand Sugar Cosmetics! 😍😍
Few days ago, I was sent a product selection email from the team of Fab Bag. Therein, a tota…
