    Retail Box #RBSecretBox Unboxing

    I’ve been following Retailbox on facebook and twitter for quite some time, even though I didn’t yet order from them at the time I was always taken a back by their huge sales on GHD and other luxury hair products so when they announced their #RBSecretBox for R99 I just had to keep my eyes peeled everywhere!


    In the midst of the moving confusion I missed the post that announced the boxes went on sale, I saw it an hour after it got shared and all the boxes where sold out! I was so sad and tweeted Retail Box, they replied with there might be more boxes available soon, so I decdied to log in and create an alert for the box so I can log on fast when they are available, and just as I logged on I saw I could add to cart!

    Never had I typed in credit card details so fast in my life. After my purcase was done I arranged with them to hold on delivery with my box until the following week, they sent my box out on Monday and I received it bright and early on Tuesday morning! Really really great service, this is why in furture I won’t hesitate to buy anything from them.

    I opened my box and I loved every single item in there, the box is worth well over R500. This is what I received in my box (and might I add that the box smelled amazing?!)

        I really love my box, I’m not sure tho when it will go on sale again, as I understand it’s not a monthly box, but if I hear or see something I will let you know!
