Glamabox is a monthly dose of beauty delivered to your door.

Imagine receiving a beautifully wrapped box every month. On unwrapping it, you will find five sample-sized beauty products from luxurious and reputable skincare and cosmetics brands. All will have been handpicked by the model, Lisa Selesner (Lisa S.) and her team of beauty experts.
“Glamabox” offers this box of surprises, delivered monthly to your door. It is a beauty subscription service headquartered in Hong Kong, and available in Asia.
“It” girl and founder Lisa S. has a mission – to share the products and services she discovers with others around the world. Lisa S. and her Glamabox team, who are fashion stylists and beauty experts, explore and try out different beauty products, seeking out the best ones for their subscribers.
In order to “tailor-make” each Glamabox, subscribers have to start off by filling in a simple “Quick Style Profile” online indicating their age, skin type, style and beauty preferences, before subscribing with a monthly fee of $108. The Glama-team will then review the profile and customise five personalised high-end beauty products for the Glamagirl each month.
Some of the products in the Glamabox are not yet available in Hong Kong, so subscribers can enjoy a sneak peek of the hottest products from around the globe.
Once you find something you like from the samples, you can order it on the Glamashop, the online retail store of Glamabox.
In the past few months, Glamabox has widened its range of beauty products to include nail polish, shampoos and conditioners, masks, eye creams, serums, mascara and lip balms, as well as vouchers for hair and facial treatments.
The Glamabox even delivers healthy food items. The February package included the Stephen James organic beauty-berry bar and three bottles of the Japanese beauty drink, Chocola BB Drink.
Bonnie Tang Man-lam, a recent subscriber of Glamabox, is satisfied with the overall service and products.
“The best thing is that it delivers the box to my door and I don’t have to choose from the great variety of products offered in the market,” Tang says.
Glamabox gives you a little sample of different products, allowing you to discover and try new beauty products without stepping out of your door.
If you are dissatisfied with the contents of your Glamabox, you can give feedback on the website and adjustments will be made to fine-tune the next box.
