Glam Guru Beauty Box: My First International Beauty Box From Israel

I have been reading about international beauty boxes on my friend Renu's blog, MyBeautyJunction.com. I was successfully resisting the temptation to order them..till last month, when I finally caved in and ordered the Glam Guru Beauty Box. This is an Israel based company that offers around 6 beauty boxes each year. The best part about them is that you can request them to customise your box (it comes in a bag actually) according to your requirements. Read on to know what I got in my......... 

Glam Guru Beauty Box


Glam Guru: Beauty Box from Israel

This is actually a zippered pouch, transparent on one side so you can see the contents. Inside the pouch, there was a lot of paper shredding to keep the contents intact. And the whole thing was then wrapped up in tonnes of bubble wrap and then boxed.

Jasmin Natural Care Perfume Oil Extract in Amber

Renu said that she loved the perfume oil extract and that it lasted really well too. So of course, how could I not request for that? And she was absolutely right. This perfume oil in the fragrace Amber, smells fantastic. In fact, my aunt recently got me a perfume cream from Dubai that smells identical to this. Since I like the fragrance so much, I'm looking forward to using both of them. This Jasmin (that's the brand name) perfume oil extract seems to be a full-sized product since it is 30ml and in a glass bottle.

Payot Anti-Wrinkle Cream

The people at Glam Guru got my box request mixed up and sent me some different products than the one I had asked for. Nevertheless, I am looking forward to trying out this anti-wrinkle cream.

Elin Bianco Treatment Mask

Ok, to be very honest, I requested for this hair mask only because the jar is sooo cute! Pale pink, pyramidal shaped jar which contains a hair mask that is enriched with vitamin-rich oils and extracts to add softness and moisture to dry, damaged hair. I have a feeling that I'm gonna like this....a lot ;)

Faran Natural Face Serum Anti-Aging

100% of the total ingredients are of natural origin and 80% of those are from organic farming!!! WOW! And since this is an oil, you need just a couple of drops for the entire face so this 5ml sample is surely going to last me at least a couple of weeks.

Faran Face Cleansing Gel Stimulating

I used this cleanser last night and it was instant love! It is slightly tingly and really made me feel so fresh. Cleaned my skin very well too; I had was wearing BB cream and liner and this removed all traces of it so gently. Didn't make my skin feel dry or tight either. <3

Maybelline ColorRama Nail Polish

Maybelline Colorama Nail Polish

There is no shade name or number on this polish. Everything on it, except for the name, is written in Hebrew. The colour is a beautiful dark orange, very similar to the LA Splash polish I got in my December FabBag.

And finally......................

Konjac Sponge

I have already bought one of these sponges from Renu's surplus stock and it is really nice and soft. I have got some breakouts after I started using this but I think that is just my skin purging out the toxins. 

Glam Guru's customer care is really good. I had actually asked for the black Konjac which is for acne-prone skin but they sent the white one. Also, the bag I had asked for had Senscience and San Francisco Soap Company products in it. When I told them about this mistake, they immediately told me they would send me the black Konjac and Senscience though they were out of stock with the San Francisco Soap Company. Isn't that wonderful?

The Glam Guru Beauty Box costs approximately Rs. 1800 inclusive of shipping to India. Totally worth it, dont you think? I am looking forward to ordering more boxes from them. Thanks Renu, for introducing Glam Guru to us :)
