Unboxing My First Beauty SOS Glamour Box
I am late to get on the bandwagon for this because I feel like I’m not the ideal buyer of subscription boxes for the main reason that I do not like waiting and wondering what on earth could be inside the subscription boxes. I’m the kind of person who can obsessively think about such things. But I finally subscribed to some of these boxes out of curiosity as to why a lot of girls love them so much. I want to test the waters and see if I will like the boxes . The first box that arrived on my doorstep is the Beauty SOS Glamour Box.
Beauty SOS Glamour Box September – October
These are my first impressions of Glamour Box. Lets open the box shall we. (actually, I already opened it before taking photos. I was too excited to see what was inside, but let us relive the moment! :D ) First of all, I like this kind of packaging. It is sturdy, simple, but still fun to look at. It builds up the excitement of opening the box.
Beauty SOS Glamour Box Contents September – October
This adorable card is the first thing that I saw. I appreciate that they came up with a box theme and title, “Beauty SOS”, which gives you an idea of what you are getting. That way I didn’t have to guess what might be inside the box from scratch. Now, I can narrow down the possibilities and obsess over fewer ideas! :D The box is said to contain a selection of products that will aid you when you need a beauty rescue.
Beauty SOS Glamour Box Content Products
These are the contents of the box. I set aside the vouchers so you can see how the products were nicely arranged. I also included a snapshot of the card that has all the names and descriptions of the products included. I don’t know if you can really read it but they also wrote down the actual costs of these products in full sizes, which is nice. The vouchers were not listed on the card.
Beauty SOS Glamour Box Content Products
I am not familiar with all of the brands included in this box. I’ve heard of some of them, but I’ve never actually bought anything from them, which gave me mixed emotions towards how I felt about this selection. The majority of the items were skin care products, as expected. I was a bit disappointed that it didn’t include any under eye cream because that was the first thing that came into my mind when I heard about the theme.
Beauty SOS Glamour Box Contents : Rejuvalash Eyelash Growth Serum, Kanebo Impress Advanced CT Essence, VMV Hypoallergenics, OFRA Lipstick in #202 or #205, Mustela Stelatopia Emollient Cream
I’m happy that the Ofra lipstick that I received is pink instead of red. I already have a couple of red lipsticks that I am very happy with, and I didn’t really want another one at the moment. Early subcribers got an extra Mustela Emollient Cream, which is a nice incentive. I’ll make sure I’ll subribe asap again the next time I’m getting one of their boxes.
Beauty SOS Glamour Box Contents : Avon Gen0protect SPF 15 Treatment, Saforelle Gentle Cleansing Care. vouchers from Anma Lifestyle, Soleo Swimwear, LayBare, Glamour Box
Above are the other products I’m also looking forward to try. All in all, it was a great experience opening the box and discovering new brands. If you do the math, you are definitely getting more than what you are paying for, which i think is the most important thing. Would I like to subscribe again? Yes I would like to subscribe again because its such a fun experience. But since I always have a long list of things I want to purchase every month, I’m still debating if I want to purchase a box every month. I also want to avoid getting one kind of product from a lot of different brands, especially if I’ve already found one that I really like. I will probably get a box if the theme sounds like something I would want. I also would like to wait a couple of days and try these products first to see how many of them will work nicely on me.
What do you think of this month’s Glamour Box and what other beauty box subscriptions do you enjoy? :)
I still haven't subscribed to any boxes like this but I always get excited whenever I see unboxing posts. the box of Glamourbox looks simple yet classy even the products in it looks classy. The BDJ box from last month (if I'm not mistaken) is soooo great too.
This really looks like fun ahah I really like surprises so I think
I would like something like this, but only if it's worth what I'm paying for
and if they're good products, like you said. Still, it seems like
they're great products and I hope you can update us on whether they
really work or not^_^ Thank you so much for sharing Shayne(:
Ooh how exciting! It looks like you got a lot of really neat things to try out.
in fairness, it really is a GLAMOUR box! very interesting products, let us know how they work for you. :)

I've always wanted to subscribe to a company that does this sort of thing! I was thinking about glossybox but i always worry i won't get much that i like. I would debate on whether or not to spend my money on the box or on products i know i will like!
I would love to try a subscription box, I'm just afraid of getting useless samples and things I already have plenty of. If I was to do it I'd get one of those ones where you specify the types of things you want to see. You've gotten some great products in this box, I'm glad you're happy with it!

I haven't tried a subscription box before but they do look very fun! The packaging looks gorgeous, I love receiving packages in the mail :)
I like the idea of the boxes in theory, but because I have so little extra money to spend on those things, I'd be too disappointed by the hit and miss nature of them. xD I like to know exactly what I'm getting.
I love the packaging. It's so pretty and clean.
It's seems to be a great box, I wish I could try it.
I like the whole packaging. But I've never really been compelled to get into these subscription boxes here in the Manila. First of all they're a complete surprise, I also have the patience of a five year old and lastly even if the whole box is “more than what I'm paying for” if I don't like most of it and will probably never use it (thus prompting me to give it away) what's the point? :))
Nice box! i've tried an OFRA eyeliner, it wasn't too bad. hope the lipstick is good!
So many good products in one box.. :)
Keep in touch,
hi!! is it a paid subscription or free?
and please check out my blog and comment on what i need to improe on
This is so amazing! Like opening presents on christmas day! Kasama na ba ang shipping fee?
I have been thinking about this a lot because people rave so much about this but the thing is i don't know whether i will be happy or disappointed. I don't like suspense when it comes to purchases.
I would have loved the lipstick and the eyelash serum but don't know if i would ever use the other products so it would have disappointed me.
I think i am fine at the moment. but good luck to you and glad that you liked it.

Some great things in there. Though yes not sure if I would do this every month once in a while would be fun.

Hi dear, I like the idea of an SOS box, seems like beauty essentials I would want to try out. The great thing about these types of subscriptions is hat they send you things you would normally never think of buying and then you realize how wonderful they are after trying a sample from the box.
So many people get so many different boxes!
I whish I could try one, but most of them do not send to my country and in my country we have nothing like that. A shame, actually!
I believe some of the products you got aregood. I've tried Saforelle before and it's a very good product. You received a serum for your lashes, hope it works!
Thank you so much for your sweet and lovely comment. And I guess I will try to make a snow white photo of the day.
Your pictures are beautiful! I'm not subscribed to any of the subscription boxes… I like to know what I'm spending my money on as I'm not one for surprises. It looks like you got some great items though!
I am late on the whole box subscription thing as well. I have only done won box and that is the influenster box, though I have always been intrested in IPSY.
I might try joining one soon because I love getting new items! The box is very pretty and it looks like you got some nice items!
I really love the theme of the box” beauty SOS” hehe =)
What an amazing box!
Here most boxes consist in Samples. Yes, samples! It's a really sham-full thing and the worst is that, since most people don't know the international concept they think that it's ok. Thankfully there is one or another that have a better service (but cost a bit more, which I don't care since the service is good).
Thank you for sharing this box with us!Please take care, have a nice day!*
This looks so good!
I keep meaning to sign up to one after seeing them all over the blogs, definitely give a review to the products!
Lovely to see the contents of this box, I always like to have a little peak :p it's a shame beauty boxes don't have the option to purchase previous boxes whilst stocks last I think they could gain a lot more business and profit through this, as it really is so hit and miss and that's the main reason why I've never tried them either, sometimes you do get an awesome selection and sometimes you're unlucky and don't :(
Lovely review and beautiful pictures as always!

hi shane, ang saya naman nyan may element of surprise, sulit na tapos you can share some items that you don't want sa mom, sis o friends mo. have a great week. : )
hi arya! that appearance of the box was actually one of the main factors that made me decide to get a box from them lol. i feel like the selection of products are excellent bec the presentation is classy ^^ i think its the shiseido box? :)
thats very true, with subscription boxes you usually get more than what you are paying for, the only question is how many of those products will you like and will work well on you ^^ will do dianna <3 thank you!
yup thanks shannon! :)
will so sis ^^ thank you <3
i had the same concerns mia :) i think the best time to try them will be on december bec most of them have really nice boxes for Christmas ^^ do you have birch box there?
thats a good plan ashii :) ive seen boxes that works that way. we have some here but so far i havent seen any that has good sections that fits my needs :P
haha me too karen ^^ to me, they are like presents! even though technically we paid for them :P
had and still have the same concerns bethany ^^ im also the type of person who budgets my money intensively :)
im not sure if they ship abroad mushi ^^ there are boxes from outside my country that i really really want to try too :P
haha i totally understand and i have the same thoughts too. im still waiting on weighing how many products from this box will i really like :) I'm willing to gamble on the Christmas boxes tho. I have a feeling they will pick nice selections for december ^^
hi lily! :) i tried the lipstick yesterday. so far its quite okay. would like to see how long it will last on different occasions :)
thanks pooja! :)
hi everdust! i purchased the box for around PHP595.00 :) sure!
yes sis included na ^^ have a feeling their december box is going to be good sana hindi pa ubos ^^
thanks for sharing your thoughts naaj :) i completely understand it. i had the same concerns too :)
thanks alicia! :) its nice that they release theme names before people can subcribe to it :P
its a nice way to look at it sam :) it opens a lot of doors for you to try different brands and cosmetics :)
i started using the saforelle lash serum hihi, thanks for the heads up! there are times when it stings a bit on my eyes tho ^^ will look forward to the snow white FOTD <3
thanks nikki! :) have the same concerns too :P will probably not buy the boxes regularly for this reason ^^
hi mindy i wanna subcribe to the box that you made on your blog haha the one that had a bazillion sweets in it ^^
what box is it diana? :) i think originally these subscription boxes announce that we will get sample sizes only but through out time theyve evolved and started including actual size products which is nice :)
will do thanks emma! <3
thats very true :) it would be very nice for us if they allow that haha but maybe bad for their business? idk how the subcription business works but i hope this will happen sometime in the future :)
haha thats very true! im planning to do that on the items that i thnk i dont really need or will use :P thanks giday!
I've never subscribed to a box program like this before. It's fun to see what's in them! xoxo
thanks for sharing us what's inside your subscription box!! i've always wanted to sign up for it.. but never know what i'm getting so i like to peep into others to see if this company is worth it hehe :p
Very nice! I would love to try those but my skin is so stinkin sensitive I can't use anything but natural products. Can't wait to see how these work on you! :P
Great post – I've never heard of Glamour Box and I've never heard of any of the products here but I'm now looking on eBay for that lipstick because it's very pretty! :]
Coffee, Prose, and Pretty Clothes
They have VMV? Wow! Maybe I should switch to this. I used to subscribe to BDJ box but somehow, I am not happy with the products I received these past few boxes.
Wow.. I am currently creating a late blog on my September Glamour Box… you are so lucky you got the mustela… I wasn't able to meet the cutoff since I paid via bank deposit on a Saturday :( I got the #202 lipstick but I guess it is a bit better than having a pink one since I have a warm skintone although, I am not a red lover too.. lol! But at least I am loving the other products with it… It is my first time too for Glamourbox… I am currently waiting for my BDJ Box experience for October (a first too..)
I haven't gotten onto the bandwagon for this exact reason, I like variety. This doesn't mean I haven't been very tempted to subscribe though.
I've only ever tried Birchbox, which was a disappointment. But this looks like a great deal!
I Too Haven't Subscribed To These Kinda Boxes Till Date.. It's Just Hard For Me To Wait :P
Loved Your Products! Especially, The Lippie *__*
Thanks for sharing this! I had a fun time comparing your box to the BDJ Box that I get every month. You should check that one out. I don't have any complaints with it so far. I love the way that you write, btw. Gonna follow you on GFC now :)
I always think the whole concept would be really exciting. I'd love to try something of this variety.
I really like the packaging, but I don't know if I'd use the products :( your blog has a gorgeous design xx

your photos really make me feel happy and light just by looking at them :) it's like everything is just so beautiful! please keep putting smile on our faces with your articles. great day shayne!
I thought I subscribed to Oct-Dec box and was surprised to receive this box today. I like what's inside but not really excited to try new skin care stuff from brands I do not know. I love the new lipstick but it is red and I already own a lot of that color too. Haay, I am quite sad that I am not subscribed to Dec box and it will definitely be sold out. :(
I really wish we have a beauty subscription like that here. Actually, we do have one but the things they sent out are really bad, like really crappy most of the time, hehe, so it feels like it's not worth it. But luckily that box is pretty affordable, hopefully they'll included exciting products in the future that you're familiar with so it's more fun to try them. :)
Take care always, love Christine ~ xo

Great Products and lovely post – but most of all I love the pictures you took, they are perfect!! Love, Kyra
LOL! Thanks for reliving the moment of opening the box with us! I loved that!
This seems so like so much fun to try. I really need one of these where I live :)
thanks for dropping by laura! :)
hi lisa! one box that i really really want to try is called ipsy box, do you have it there? :)
aww sorry to hear that. i have a strong feeling one of your fave skin care brand is lush? :)
i hope you can find it deborah, its quite nice and has a satin finish. i might write a review on it in the future :)
hi jenn! nice to hear from you again :) i noticed that bdj box leans more on the popular brands here in the Philippines. I also subscribe to their box for november i think. have you tried VMV? :)
aw sayang naman :( i actually didnt know that they give freebies to early subscribers i was just too excited and worried na maubusan ako ng box hihi. btw looks like we are going to have very similar head start on the boxes. this was my first glamour box and i also got the bdj box for the month of november, also my first time ^^
its really tempting specially since a lot of beauty bloggers are in to it. There are months where the content of the boxes are really nice but there are those days where its meh ^^ its like a gamble hehe
sorry to hear that krysten. im actually surprised to see a lot of girls getting disappointed at birchbox. i think i saw a couple of boxes months ago that i really liked. ^^
thanks heena! ^^ i too can be impatient when it comes to these things haha
aw thank you :) im not a natural writer and i really try my best to improve on it so this is a nice and unexpected compliment <3 will check out your BDJ box and see what you got this month :)
thank you gemma <3
awww thank you for your kind words sis <3 this is a very nice compliment *blush*
hope youll be able to try soon imogen :) do you know the singer named imogen heap? :)
hi chrissy! ive seen boxes here too that has products im not very interested in haha ^^ hope the subscription boxes there would improve :) still would love to get ipsy box someday haha ^^
you look very much alike to an old friend who has the same name. i thought she was you ^^ thanks kyra <3
hahaha! just couldnt resist it ^^
what country are you from marija? hope you can find a box that suits your preference :)
hi juvy! i would be disappointed if that happened to me :( i tried to get the December box from bdj too but from what i know it is already sold out. im still hoping that if i decide to get the 3 month subscription from glamour and bdj maybe i can still get the Christmas box? hm i should inquire about that.
hello, nice blog Shayne, you're doing great
we never heard of it, but it looks great fun!
shall we follow?facebook.bloglovin
greetings from Holland
thank you kelly! :) sure will check out yours now
No i don't think so, i have to check on that though! But i know a lot of people in the U.S. that get glossy box, so if i do try one of these box companies it will probably be theirs! Yours seems lovely :)
Uyyyy finally! I got mine na but I did such a long BDJ elite unboxing that I can't post my unboxing yet :P
i will look forward to your post on your first glossy box if ever, i think Christmas would be a good time to try these boxes. most of them have really great selections for the month of december ^^
yes finally hahaha ^^ i almost forgot about their elite boxes. i should check out how that works.
I haven't subscribed to any box yet because I'm afraid that i wouldn't like what I get and its not cheap..maybe someday :0 thanks for sharing Shayne!
thanks steph :) there are boxes that reveals the content before you subscribe maybe youd like to check on those too :)
i got mine yesterday. this is my first box and i love it :)
congrats on your first box! it was my first box too :) which products are your faves?
I have never tried subscriber boxes before, but they seem so popular I'm really going to have to jump on the bandwagon one of these days!

hehe thanks sarah! welcome to my blog ^^
