SaladBox - The Philippines' First Beauty and Lifestyle Subscription Box

Have you heard of Birchbox or Glossybox? What about the MyGlam bag? Basically, these are monthly beauty box subscription services. You sign up, pay the monthly fee, and they send you a box of product samples (sometimes even full size ones). This way, you get to try out lots of new products. And if you find something you really like, you can purchase its full-size version.

I've been really interested in beauty boxes since the first time I heard about them but couldn't get my hands on one because we didn't have beauty subscription services in the Philippines. But here's the good news... we now have SaladBox!

SaladBox is the Philippines’ first beauty and lifestyle box subscription service. For just P500 per month, SaladBox subscribers will receive a box containing four or more beauty and lifestyle product samples from the best beauty and lifestyle brands worldwide. The products in the box will have a value of more than P700 so we're sure to get more than what we pay for.

SaladBox ( will be officially launched later today, September 8, 2012, at 8pm (Manila time). Subscription comes in a first-come-first-served basis so if you're as interested in this as I am, I suggest you set your alarm  now so you can reserve your slots early. SaladBox will start accepting reservations for subscription slots starting 8:00 pm tonight (Sept. 8). They will send you a link to their subscription application form once it’s your turn to subscribe.

SaladBox will also be hosting exclusive weekly flash sales which won’t be available in any other group buying sites in the country. SaladBox will also give subscribers equivalent SaladLeaves (reward points) for each successful friend referral. Subscribers can also submit product reviews which they will be rewarded for with SaladLeaves. SaladLeaves can be used to buy full-size products from the site's shop and from the flash sales.

"SaladBox is a fun way to try out new products without breaking the bank and filling up your dresser with all the unwanted clutter. And with a SaladBox arriving at your doorstep, it’s going to be like Christmas every month!"

Don't miss out! SaladBox is on Twitter and Facebook too. You can follow them for updates.

Excited? Let's all wait and see what SaladBox has in store for us :)
