Glossybox review 2020

5 products worth £50, delivered to your door for just £10. But how do they fare?


Fact checked
Picture not described

In a bit of a beauty rut, buying the same boring products time and time again? Glossybox could well be the answer.

Delivering a handful of items to your door, Glossybox promises to broaden your horizons and take you on a journey to colourful, glittering and sweet-smelling places.

After unveiling the pretty packaging, you’ll find something even more exciting than shimmer and glitter: the products themselves.

But is a monthly subscription really worth the money? We tested all five products in The Birthday Edition to find out for you.


  • Exciting, often new products each time, so you’re unlikely to know the brands.
  • You get more for your money than other subscription boxes on offer.
  • More full-size items larger than other competitor boxes.


  • No custom options available, despite the ability to create a beauty profile.
  • Some products are not full-size.
  • Some brands are repeated from time to time.

What’s the verdict?

Glossybox is pretty good value for money at just £10 for 5 quality products worth over £50. If you’re looking for some brand new products to shake up your beauty routine, we would recommend subscribing.

The boxes are also slightly larger than many of Glossybox’s competitors, so you can be sure you’re really getting your money’s worth.

Just keep in mind that not all products come as full-size, and on occasion, you may receive products from the same brand that you’ve tried before.
