GlossyBox India

Last year it was online shopping sites that sprouted like mushrooms in the rain.

2012 seems like the year of beauty boxes. I ain't complaining. Only they should turn not out to be flashes in the pan like some of sites who initially offered a lot of discounts but now sell at MRP (You know who you are!)

Ideally I would like these beauty boxes to be specific - like there should be services that do only makeup beauty boxes or skincare beauty boxes or even perfume beauty boxes. That way you can choose what you want exactly out of a box.

GLOSSYBOX is the leading international e-­‐commerce service aimed at introducing discerning users to new and highly sought-­‐after beauty and cosmetic products. Each month, hundreds of thousands of women around the world eagerly await the delivery of their GLOSSYBOX, to find out just what the box contains for them – luxurious products for the recipient to try in the comfort of their home, away from the cramped, rushed environment of a cosmetics counter at a department store.

GLOSSYBOX is a beautifully-­‐wrapped box containing a mix of five travel-­and full-sized products, carefully curated by our experts. We’re committed to providing only the best products in our boxes, for which we partner not only with the world’s most admired and respected beauty and cosmetic houses, but also with luxurious Indian brands.

Through our service, you can be assured that you’re receiving some of the best and most innovative beauty and cosmetic products around. What’s more, you can share and discuss your GLOSSYBOX experience with other GLOSSYBOX members on the blog, or on the GLOSSYBOX India facebook and Twitter pages – all great ways to discover and discuss new and exciting beauty and cosmetic products, tips, and experiences.


  1. i agree with u tanveer abt the separate boxes concept...that wud be better!!!

  2. Wow, beauty boxes FTW! Best news for beauty product lovers. :-)

  3. They do sound great..but a certain degree of risk is involved as in what if they send u cleansing wipes?? Ur rite...we shld be able to choose what kind of prdts we want..I hope the concept builds up!! :)
    Nice post!!

  4. this is a lovely service. Basically getting samplers to try before actually buying a full sized product is not a new concept...its just more glamorized!

  5. Ohhh....when i see this, all i can see is NARS, Illamasqua and Laura Mercier..!!! ;) Ido hope they actually so send samples from these brands and aint just a show...

  6. Give me some guerlain and I'm set!!!!

  7. Though its so temptinggg...but sometimes the prdts we recieve are such what i got in my first blisscovered box..

  8. Hi everyone! We are super excited to be here in India! We ask our users to fill out a Beauty Profile when they sign up for our service so that we can understand your taste and preferences. We then try to customize what we send you based on this, but it is always a challenge to customize to individual tastes. We will do our best!

    - Your GLOSSYBOX India team <3

    1. Thanks GlossyBox!!!
      The concept sounds really fun and tempting!! Its great that its finally been introduced in India!! :)

Reetha, Amla & Shikakai Home Made Shampoo - Weekend Experiment

Good Morning Lovelies, I hope your weekend was fun. Mines was, well, ho-hum, but anyways, we are not talking about that here (let’s save that cribbing for twitter).
I have been suffering from quite a bit of hair fall since some time. I have tried changing products to using intensive conditioning and the works. It stops the hair fall for while, but then it rears its ugly head again.
So on lark, & for lack of better things to do, my best friend & I decided to make some Reetha – Amla – Shikakai shampoo at home. This century old ayurvedic herbal concoction is reputed to not only strengthen hair, but also darken it and stop hair fall.
I got the 3 biggies from a local kirana store. All 3 are priced at 15 Rs for 100gms.

How to: Soak 5 pieces of Shikakai, 4 balls of Reetha  (Soapnut) & handful of Amla (Indian Gooseberry)  in about 500 ml of water overnight. In the morning, heat the mixture on gas till it just starts to boil. Let it cool, when lukewarm mash all the amla, reetha and…

Skin Care Myth: Sunscreen will stop you from Tanning

Image via Wikipedia I know I did a recent article on skin care myths (read it here), but I don't know how I forgot to mention this particular myth. In any case I think this warranted a post on its own.

Myth: If I use a suncreen regularly and religiously, I will not tan. 

Fact: This is a very simplistic statement. But before I bust this myth, kindly bear through a science lecture. This is to bring all readers of all backgrounds on the same knowledge level.

Lets define sunscreen (from Wikipedia):Sunscreen (also commonly known as sunblock or sun cream) is a lotion, spray, gel or other topical product that absorbs or reflects "some" of the sun's ultraviolet (UV) radiation on the skin exposed to sunlight and thus helps protect against sunburn. Sunscreen helps protect only against direct DNA damage as it cannot dissipate UV as harmless heat.

The SPF of a sunscreen is a laboratory measure of the effectiveness of sunscreen — the higher the SPF, the more protection a sunscreen …

I made "Washed Ghee" at home and it turned out great!

Yesterday I posted about the importance of fat in our diet. While doing research for the same I came across the recipe for "Washed Ghee" or Shata Dhaut Ghrita (100 times washed ghee).

After I read about this miracle at home cream, it was inevitable that I would try to create this cream myself. All I needed apparently was some cow ghee & water.

So I made it last evening. And here is how it went.

For those readers who haven't read the earlier post: Hundred times washed ghee is prepared from organic cow milk ghee by washing it in purified water, repeatedly, 100 times in a copper vessel, using a specific prescribed method while chanting some mantras

This procedure transforms the ghee into a soft, cooling, nourishing, silky unguent that is used as a traditional moisturizer and anti wrinkle skin cream. It produces radiant and glowing skin, especially for people with easily inflamed skin. It can be used as a daily face and body moisturizer or for facial massage. Apply it for…
