Glambox: veebruar

This post is about glambox which is a quite fresh Estonian subscription service where members receive a beautifully packaged gift box containing a mix of make-up, skincare, haircare, nail products and fragrance samples, based on their beauty profile. Each month's contents is a lovely surprise and will be a mix of various beauty items.
My review is in Estonian but you, dear foreign readers, can still browse the photos and definitely let me know if you have something similar in your country. And if you have, are you a fan and a subscriber?


19. veebruari õhtul saabus kauaoodatud sõnum uue glamboxi minuni jõudmise kohta. Läbi ülitiheda tuisuse lumesaju rühkisime Erikuga kesklinna, kuna ma lihtsalt pidin oma karbikese kohe kätte saama ja selle sisu avastama hakkama. Võin täiesti siiralt öelda, et areng võrreldes eelmise glamboxiga on silmnähtav, ja ma olin (ning olen endiselt) meeldivalt üllatunud ja põnevil.
Need, kes veel glamboxiga kursis ei ole, võivad lisaks uurida ka kodulehte ja minu jaanuarikuu glamboxi ülevaadet.

Niisiis, ka sel korral ei hakka ma ümber kirjutama iga mulle saadetud ilutoote tutvustust, kuna vastavat teavet võite lugeda fotolt. Aga siin on minu esmased muljed toodete kohta:
  • Bourjois Mini Effect 3D Lipgloss, 1,7 ml, toon disco purple - üks tervelt kolmest Bourjois' minitootest. Huuleläike värvus tundub vähemalt pakendis üsna kena, seega ootan huviga hetke, mil jõuan esimese katsetamiseni, et saada aimu ka läike püsivusest ja tekstuurist.
  • Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Face Wash gel, 15 ml - näopuhastusgeele mul palju ei ole, nii-et kindlasti leiab see pisike tuubike rakendust, aga iseasi, kas raatsin kohe ära kasutada või võtan kevadel reisile kaasa.
  • Bourjois Mini Nail enamel, 3 ml, toon nr 13 - minu jaoks täiuslik suurus, sest sõrmeküüsi ma ise ei laki ning varbaküüntele on see kogus pikaks ajaks täiesti piisav. Ja roosakad toonid ilumaailmas on alati armsad.
  • TIGI Bed Head Colour Combat Dumb Blonde Shampoo + Conditioner, 7 ml + 7 ml - teraapia triibutatud juustele, võitleb katkemise ja elutu värviga. Blondeerimise (ja üldse juuste värvimise) hülgasin eelmise aasta alguses, aga kerge triibutamine mulle istub, kui seda näiteks paar korda aastas teha. Kusjuures, tegelikult olen TIGI Dumb Blonde šampooni ja palsamit kunagi kauges minevikus kasutanud, ja tegemist oli üpris asjaliku kombinatsiooniga, nii-et ka need minipakendid tulevad minuga koos reisile.
  • Bourjois Mini Eyeshadow, 1,5 g, toon nr 51 - kolmas ehk seekord viimane Bourjois' minitoode, mis on tegelikult taaskord täiuslikus suuruses näiteks reisile kaasa võtmiseks (kavatsen Eestist minnes oma kohvrit minimaalselt kurnata, et ikka korralikult koha peal shopata saaks). Samuti olen rahul pruunikas-kuldse tooniga, kuna olen midagi sarnast ka eelnevalt kasutanud ning mulle meeldib.
  • Naturals Handmade Natural Bath Salt - vanni mul (veel) pole, aga jalavann ei ole üldse halb mõte, nii-et võtan selle kindlasti lähiajaks plaani... kes teab, äkki juba varsti saabuvaks pikaks nädalavahetuseks? Ausalt öeldes on see minu kodus esimene vannisool.
  • Éminence Organic Skin Care Blueberry Shimmer Body Lotion - tõenäoliselt jätan selle toote katsetamise kevadesse, mil võib paljaste säärtega ringi käia, ning kõnealune sädelus on kindlasti siis efektsem. Praegu võin aga öelda, et vähemalt lõhn on meeletult hea.

Pean ka ära mainima, et nagu lubatud, peitus minu karbikeses sel korral kaks Geisha šokolaadi, mis on väga armas žest. Lubadustest kinnipidamine igas elu valdkonnas on minu jaoks tohutult oluline.
Aga oli ka üks veidi negatiivsema tooniga üllatus/uudis: nimelt on glamboxi hinnaks edaspidi 9,95.- eurot, ning põhjenduses on muu hulgas mainitud postikulude tõusu. Minu jaoks on see arusaamatu, kuna Post24 pakiautomaat mu kodulinnas puudub, ja pean niikuinii postikulu eest täiendavalt tasuma. Milles siis väljendub nende klientide, kellel pole võimalik Post24 teenuseid kasutada, postikulude hinnatõus glamboxi hinna sees?

Samas paremate toodete pakkumise soov on igati tervitatav ja põhjendatud. Märtsikuu glamboxi pole ma veel ära tellinud, aga oma otsuse langetan juba õige pea, ning tegelikult olen glamboxi suhtes vägagi positiivselt häälestatud ja suutsin isegi muude ilutoodete soetamise miinimumini kahandada. Olen endiselt rõõmus, et Eestis midagi sellist saadaval on, ning loeksin huviga ka teiste Eesti blogijate veebruari glamboxi muljeid, nii-et andke teada, kui keegi on samal teemal midagi postitanud.

  5. Ooh.. So nice things there again :)
    That salt brought to my mind that I bought 2 salt hearts; You just need to put a little water over it, rub in hands and use the salt wherever you need. Supposed to be great for dry skin etc. :>

  6. Oh such pretty things! We have something similar in the UK, well we have a few beauty box subscription companies, including Glossy Box, Carmine and Feel Unique (although feel unique are stopping now). I don't think that they do jewellery though, they mainly stick to skincare and cosmetics. It looks like you got so many goodies in your glambox!xx

  17. triibud lähevad ka ikka värvimise alla ju iseenesest või ma ei saanudki aru, mida sa silmas pidasid sellega :D aga minu meelest tore, et glamboxi on selliseid firmasid ka sisse pistetud nagu Bourjois. nüüd, kui nad hinda tõstavad ja uhkemaid tooteid sealjuures lubavad, siis oleks ju iseenesest tore leida mõningaid uhkemaid testereid nagu YSL või midagi sellist + näohooldus (siis ma telliks kohe :D). teisest küljest jällegi on aga just kogu selle asja juures tore, et sisaldab muidu tundmatuid firmasid ja nii avastabki uusi ja ehk häid asju, mis lisaks ka rahakotile kergem :) noh, ehk kokkuvõttes tore asjandus välja mõeldud!

    1. pidasin tegelikult silmas seda, et minu jaoks on seal suur vahe, kas värvida juukseid täies ulatuses või lasta teha näiteks 6 peenikest tumedamat (või ükskõik, mis värvi) triibukest (st kas värvi all on kogu juuksepind või vaid mõni üksik salk). ehk siis highlightimine ja värvimine pole üks ja sama. juuksurid ju küsivad ka, kas triibutamine või värvimine.. st vähemalt minult, ning isegi hinnakirjad on taolise põhimõttega koostatud :D

      aga see saaks küll vinge olema, kui YSL, Dior vms kunagi glamboxi jõuaks.. selleks peaks neil muidugi vastavad koostööpartnerid tekkima. ja mulle ka meeldib, et saab proovida erinevaid asju ning seejärel otsustada, kas tahad seda täistoodet või ei. aitab ikka raha säästa küll tegelikult :) ja muidugi see üllatuse aspekt on endiselt nunnu :D

    2. selles mõttes on loomulikult suur vahe, nii hinnas kui kõiges muus. samas kui keegi nt küsib, kas sul on juuksed värvitud, kui sul on ainult triibud seal, siis ikkagi vastata ei saa, et ei ole :D ses mõttes, et need asjd pole sinna ise tekkinud. ma mõtlesin selles mõttes, et nii-öelda lähed ikka "juukseid värvima", aga sain aru küll, mida sina mõtlesid nüüd :) ma pooldan ise ka seda moodust. mul poleks vist nii palju juukseidki, mida täies ulatuses kahjustama hakata... aasta pärast oleksin vist kiilakas :D + täies ulatuses värvimine kohustab ka kuidagi st pead kogu aeg neid juuri värvima, sest üldjuhul välja kasvanud juuksevärviga väga ringi käia ei taha...

      sellistlaadi üllatused on ka minu arvates toredad! :) no paki saamise ärevus on üldse the best ju, isegi kui tead umbes, mis sul seal sees on, aga kuidagi on lihtsalt nii ärev :D

      Delete
    3. mina kasutan üldiselt mõisteid "triibutatud" (või "salgutatud") ja "värvitud", sest näiteks värvitud juustele mõeldud šampoon minu juuste puhul küll väga positiivne pole. ajutiselt võib kasutada, aga kammitavust vms see küll ei lisa, vaid pigem sobivad täiesti tavalised ja suhteliselt odavad šampoonid, näiteks Oriflame'i omad. ja siis muidugi see rikkumise teema, sellega olen ka täitsa nõus. tean omast käest, mida teeb värvimine ja mida kerge triibutamine, ning neid kahte ei saa võrrelda. ausõna, pärast seda, kui üleni värvimise maha jätsin, on mu juuksed umbes sada korda tervemad ja paksemad, nii-et ega siin polegi midagi muud arvata enam :) kõik tuleb enda peal ära katsetada :D

      aa, muide, kas tahad neid ribasid proovida siis? :P nii paljud kusjuures kirjutavad positiivseid arvustusi nende kohta.. äkki oli viga ikka minus :D

  20. We have some similar companies in Canada - Glossy Box and Glymm - but they are a very new concept here and the reviews I've heard has been very mixed, so I haven't subscribed to either one of them yet. The box you received looks like it was full of fun things to try, and in generous sample sizes, too. How fun!
    xox,

  30. Oh my gosh this looks wonderful,what a gorgeously wrapped package,Im very jelous, I dont know of a service like this here in the UK,maybe I'll have a shop around,this is fabulous.

    Thanks for your kind words,the neon and silver sound fantastic and would certainly spice it up. The final shirt will be in plaid fabrics,its taking so long to get the practise ones finished before i make it properly,which is why I havent been on blogger for ages.

    I hope you are well are having a wonderful day x

  32. Beautiful pictures. Really wanted to read what you put :) so I translated it on good translate and it kinda worked. A few things I didn't totally understand because it remained in Estonian :) This box looks so cool - I have been trying to find one here in the UK and just came across bad storage units :( My favourite thing is the Bedhead Shampoo and conditioner - even though I am now Blonde, this is one of my favourite makes.

    Thank you for the comment on my post! Wish I could get my nails done by a proffesional, maybe you could buy the colour and take it to her?

    Also, ( sorry for the long comment) but I wondered whether you would be interested in doing a Guest post on each others blog? if you are then email me at hayleybarnes26@hotmail.com
