From one beauty lover to another, this box is everything.
Glossy Box, the company behind the popular monthly subscription beauty box, has upped their game this holiday season by introducing their 25-Day Beauty Advent Calendar. This gorgeous collection of daily makeup, skincare, and haircare treats has a total box value of over $500! 😱
We posted this earlier in the month, but we’re bumping up now as the Beauty Advent Calendar is now available to everyone (where as before it was only available to subscribers)!
I really can’t express just how beautiful and massive this advent calendar is, so I laid it next to my laptop bag which fits my 15″ MacBook for size comparison. The box itself is a pretty pale pink with gold foil accents and is filled with individual boxes containing each day’s beauty gift. The front panels are secured with magnets so you can stand the box upright and open and close with ease.
I’ll level with you, it costs a pretty penny as the 25-product calendar will set you back $99, though it’s product value is over $500 which makes the purchase much more justifiable.
If you want to confirm the exact value yourself, the set includes a booklet with the product description and retail value of each item included (but be warned, it’s obviously full of spoilers)!
The way I see it, there are 3 approaches to purchasing this box.
1. Treat yo’self.
The intended purchase is to buy this advent calendar so you have a fun, new beauty product each day of December. It’s pricey but hey, you’re worth it!
2. One for me, one for you.
Treat this as a gift for you AND a friend by splitting the cost or gifting the other half. Someone can claim the odd-numbered days and the even-numbered days go to the other person. There is a gift on the 25th which obviously gives an unfair advantage to odd-numbered days but it can be decided who gets the last day or if it should be given to a 3rd party (just to really keep things fair).
3. 5 beauty sets for $20 each.
Break up the entire box into multiple gifts for beauty-loving friends and family! You could repurpose the products into bundles of 5 and give out 5 self-care sets as gifts that only cost $20 each. This would be a great idea for Secret Santa exchanges, close co-workers, hostesses, or just some extra gifts to have on hand for anyone you may have forgotten while shopping.
Bonus: Don’t forget to reuse the box next year!
Reducing packaging waste is huge in the beauty industry, but this advent calendar does come with quite a bit of it. However, it’s an absolutely stunning box with just as cute of mini boxes inside. You can easily reuse the box for the following year (or even the current year if you end up giving all the products away as gifts).
Change the theme from beauty to anything you’d like by applying decorative paper over the front and inside circles to cover the branding and beauty-specific verbiage.
So, what’s in the box?!
Unfortunately, we’re sworn to secrecy and can’t reveal all the lovely beauty treats (and we wouldn’t want to spoil the fun either)! But as a special sneak peek, you can expect amazing products like Oribe The Lacquer High Shine Nail Polish in a moody violet shade, perfect for the upcoming winter season. And this product is valued at $32 to purchase on its own… that’s 1/3 of the price for the entire box!
