May 2012 Glymm Box

May 2012 Glymm Box

Well it’s the end of May, and that means that it’s beauty box time! My Glymm Box was the first to arrive, and compared to last month I’m not as annoyed by it.

This month, Glymm switched from using a box for their packaging to a makeup bag (not pictured, sorry!). It is actually the most useful part of the box for me, and the reason it’s not pictures is because I’m already using it!

I’ve only used the Lip balm so far, and I quite like it. Nothing special, but it’s a light lip balm and leaves your lips feeling nourished.

I’m also a HUGE fan of perfume samples (I seriously have a drawer full of them) – so the CK shock was great…minus the part where they included a “for him” sample. What the heck am I supposed to do with that!

Next month is going to be my last Glymm box. I decided to cancel my subscription because I’m just not getting good use out of my products. I did replace the Glymm box with another, but I will share that with you tomorrow ūüėČ

April 2012 Glymm Box

April 2012 Glymm Box Packaging

Well, my April Glymm box arrived last week. I was originally planning on doing a full review like I had done in March…but there literally wasn’t a single product I was interested in using. I expect that in a monthly box, there’s a million products out there, getting samples isn’t easy and you can’t please everyone!

April 2012 Glymm Box Products

This month’s box included:

  • Lucia No 1 Soap
  • Free Your Mane – ¬†Sulfate Free Hydrating Shampoo & Conditioner
  • Atelier Cologone – Orange Sanguine Fragrance
  • Mai Couture – Social Gloss (Full Size!)
  • $100 Gift Card to NuMe

I’ll probably give the soap a try eventually, and wear the lip gloss over a bright lipstick (it’s a¬†horrendous¬†light nude colour, but who knows, I may love the formula). I’m always afraid of trying new shampoo’s/conditioners. With my bright hair I never know what’s going to strip the colour. This one is sulfate free though, so hopefully it’s not an issue!

One thing I will complain about this month, is the lack of care in my packaging. Last month, the box was nicely wrapped, filled with paper stuffing, product card was nicely placed. This month, my ribbon wasn’t even cut nicely with little to no paper stuffing. It really doesn’t take that much to ensure your products are packaged nicely, and it makes the world of difference.

Are you part of any Subscription services? How are you liking them so far?

 

March 2012 Glymm Box

March 2012 Glymm Box

I recieved my March 2012 Glymm box earlier this week, and I’ve fallen in love! This was my first month of Glymm and I already can’t wait until next month!

Before I blogged about it, I actually wanted to use the products so I give you a little review. Here’s what I¬†received¬†this month:

Burt's Bees Body Cream

Burt’s Bees Nourishing Body Lotion (2 Samples)

I received 2 small samples of the Burt’s Bees Nourishing Body Lotion. Honestly, it’s nothing special – and I don’t think anything will ever replace my Bath and Body Works Shea Cashmere & Silk Lotion. Ever.

NuMe Feather Hair Extensions

NuMe Envy Feather Hair Extensions (3 Extensions in the pack)

I’ve tried a few feather hair extensions over the past 6 months, and these have become my favourite. Most of the ones I’ve tried are a single feather, but because these are synthetic they’re actually individual strands which helps them blend into my hair better. I put these in right away and I still have them in 4 days later.

NuMe Feather Hair Extensions

I can’t imagine the crazy colours would work for most people, but since I have purple hair already it looks awesome (or at least I think so! ha!)

Ocean Nail Polish

Ocean Nail Polish in Bare Necessity

I did a quick swatch of this polish for my collection, but I haven’t tried it out on my own nails yet! I also couldn’t find a link to the product online so I don’t even know where you can buy it! It’s a super sheer cream colour which is a little impractical for me, but I’ll find a way to use it I’m sure.

Anastasia Hydraful Gloss

Anastasia Hydrafull Gloss

I’m a big fan of Anastasia brow products so I was interested in trying out this product. The weirdest thing about this product is that it doesn’t come with a brush – it’s actually a little plastic spatula type contraption (very descriptive, I know). I’m not sure if the full product is like this, but I was a little concerned at first. After I put it on I was¬†pleasantly¬†surprised. It’s great! It’s very glossy, but not sticky (which is a lip gloss test of mine). I’m not sure what colour I got, but it was neutral and matched my lip colour. It’s definitely a great for a day time look.

M. Asam Magic Fini

M. Asam Magic Fini

Last but certainly not least, was Magic Fini. I read the insert that came in my package and it gave it this description “Silky formula blends beautifully into your skin to conceal uneven skin tone for a light, matte, natural looking finish. Smoothes away the appearance of wrinkles, enlarged pores and imperfections to reveal a sun kissed, healthy looking skin tone”. It’s essentially a BB Cream. And it changed my life. I can’t even describe how seriously awesome this cream is. I put it on, ran over to my mom and said “Doesn’t my face look amazing. Touch it!” It provides a nice light coverage, and makes your skin feel so soft. Just stop reading my blog and go buy it (but then come back and tell me how it changed your life too!).
