I received my Glymm box a few days after my Luxe Box, and I have to say that I am equally as happy with this month’s Glymm box. If you haven’t heard of Glymm before, check out their website here. It’s pretty cool and has a lot of interactive features that you might find interesting.
There were 4 products in the box, but this time I’ve only ever heard of and tried 1 of them before. Here is a list of the products received, what the description on the insert said, how much it retails for, and what I thought of each one, in order of excitement level:
♥ Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm (Award winner) ~ This tinted lip balm by Burt’s Bees gives your lips a hint of colour with a soft sweet flavour. It was also voted Best New Lip Product by Consumers. It’s made with natural ingredients that moisturize and condition your lips. This stuff really is the ‘balm’. Sample size received: full & full size retail price: $7.99 for 4.25g.
I absolutely love this! The shade I received was Tiger Lily and it came just in time. The day before my Glymm box arrived, I was on the hunt for a peachy lipstick but couldn’t find one that suited my skin tone. When I got this and tried it, it was the perfect shade. I already have another one of these tinted lip balms in Hibiscus, which is more of a rosy colour and which is also just simply beautiful and natural. I would absolutely recommend this product to anyone on the hunt for a new lip balm.
♥ Sula Natural Shadow ~ Keep your eyes looking flirty fresh with this trendy, easy-to-use Sula Beauty shadow. Enjoy playfully pretty eye shadow in gorgeous colours. They’re long lasting, easy to blend and made with natural ingredients. Sample size received: full & full size retail price: $8 for 4.5g.
Having not heard of this brand before was what made me even more excited to try this out! The shade I received is this beautiful purple shade called ‘On My Mind’. I have yet to try it but maybe I’ll do a separate post on this particular product, with swatches and a better review of how it applies.
♥ Mai Couture 2-1 Oil Blotting/Bronzing Papier ~ Beauty on-the-go? Mai Couture has the solution. This lightly powdered bronzing paper eliminates oil and gives your complexion a shimmery glow. No need to worry about carrying your makeup bag and brushes around with you all day. Grab a ‘papier’ and keep your face flawless. Sample size received: 1 blotting sheet & full size retail price: $24 for 100 sheets.
I have yet to try this product and I’ve actually never heard of this brand before either, but I was a little disappointed with the sample size. They only included one blotting sheet! I’m not a fan of one time use products. Also, the description on the insert was about a bronzer but the sample in the box was of a blush. The concept behind the product is great though, so I’m looking forward to testing it out. It is also paraben and talc free, which is always a plus!
♥ GlamGlow Tingling and Exfoliating Mud Mask ~ Lights, Camera, Action! Designed for Hollywood’s entertainment industry, it tingles, tightens & lightens in 15 minutes, so you’re always camera-ready. Volcanic rock, French Sea Clay and real pieces of Green Tea Leaf will give you super sexy, super radiant skin. Sample size received: 7ml & full size retail price: $78 for 50ml.
This was the last product in the box and the one I was least excited about. Don’t get me wrong, it could be a great product, but I guess I just have a bias towards makeup products rather than skin care (by no means am I saying that skin care is less important to me ~ I just stick to what works for me). I will definitely give this a shot though. If it’s any kind of amazing, I might even do a post on it.
So that concludes what I received in my Glymm box this month! Are you subscribed? What did you receive? I’d love to see what others have gotten!
Happy unboxing xx
