Glossybox surprised the heck out of me The other day! I got home to find a Glossybox on my table... Um, I cancelled about 3 months ago- What's this?
I then noticed that it was addressed to my blog. It started making a bit of sense. I applied for the Glossybox ambassador program back in June or July last year and they were full but I guess they kept my info as someone they'd had good a good relationship with and sent me a free box. And I personally have had a good relationship with Glossybox. I enjoyed my boxes and had an issue once with broken products and received a replacement within a short time AND they gave me an alternate product that I'd seen in spoilers instead of the one I got that was broken even though they said they didn't do that when I asked by email. Overall, my experience with Glossybox has been good products and pleasant surprises.
BUT they have had their fair share of issues these past months and as someone who doesn't want to take a lot of "iffiness" from beauty boxes, I cancelled right when they raised the prices for no good reason. Since then, controversies have continued, from getting old products in a box to censoring their page and banning members who really did nothing wrong except point out true in a very respectful manner. A comment that I made on their page about this issue was deleted as well, though I was not banned for it.
I don't appreciate that.
To sum up:
I've had a good experience with Glossybox overall personally
They are terrible at PR and lack transparency and honesty
With everything put together, I will not re-sub
I do wish to thank them for sending out the box and I'm enjoying the products (not pictured is the Givenchy gloss that not even all paying members got) This has not been the most positive of posts, but it was honest and I could never do any less than that.
