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?
