September 2012 Glymm Bag

I cannot believe that I have been subscribed to Glymm for a full year! I can still remember getting a TeamBuy coupon to get 50% off my first month of Glymm which was $10 at the time. For $5, how could I NOT try this service out! Now, beauty boxes are everywhere competing and we are all literally living off of the probably hundreds of samples we have accumulated! And now here is my Glymm Bag done in the white version of the black quilted makeup bag which we received last month. I actually quite like the bag and have been using them for nail supply storage.

EVOLVh Ultrashine Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner

DSCF4319

Ideal for both color treated and virgin hair, this Shampoo gently cleanses while infusing moisture and nutrients, leaving hair nourished. Rather than coating hair, this conditioner penetrates the hair shaft to moisturize and repair hair from the inside out.

Thoughts: This is labeled as a vegan shampoo and is said to be a favourite of hairdressers everywhere. I’ve never heard of the brand, but what it claims to do sounds nice in theory. I thought these were fairly decent sample sizes as well.

Full size: Shampoo - 8.5oz/$24.00, Conditioner – 8.5oz/$25.00

I received: Shampoo – 2oz/$5.65, Conditioner – 8.5oz/$5.88

 

Villainess Dulve En Fuego Whipped Body Creme

DSCF4320

Whip your skin into shape and 'redefine bad' with this thick, yet light and quite soluble body crème - much like edible whipped heavy cream. Yum.

Thoughts: With a description like “musky bitter chocolate sweetened with vanilla and touches of citrus then positively inflamed with black pepper and nutmeg will always leave you wanting more” I am very intrigued about trying this body butter! I love the combination of different scents like this! I am so tempted to buy the duo that’s on sale on the Glymm website…

Full size: 177ml/$15.75 (Does anyone else find this to be a weird amount?)

I received: 10mL/$0.89

 

Bentaberry Supermoisturizing Face Cream for Girls

DSCF4321

The high-quality super moisturizing face cream for girls is made from 100% natural active ingredients: apple, prickly pear, strawberry, kiwi, kigelia africana and macadamia oil.

Thoughts: I love the idea of all-natural ingredients, but the first sample we got from this company wasn’t great for me. It didn’t absorb into my skin at all and would rub off over the course of the day which was kind of gross.

Full size: 30mL/$19.00

I received: 3mL/$1.90

 

La Fresh Waterproof Makeup Remover Wipes

DSCF4322

Gently wipe your eyes & lips with love and good intention. Soon they will be sparkling clean. No need to rinse.

Thoughts: I haven’t had a chance to try these out, but I have always wanted to try these out. They are always on sale at Winners so if they work out then I can go pick up an entire pack for $6.99 was it? I liked the nail polish remover pads a lot, so I have a good feeling about these!

Full size: 24 wipes/$9.99

I received: 2 wipes/$0.83

Total Value of Glymm Bag: $15.15

DSCF4318

Another Glymm bag that’s kind of meh in my mind…the shampoo and conditioner were great sizes, but my favourite would have to be the Villainess body creme just because the scent sounds so unique! Next month is my last Glymm bag so I am hoping for a good one!

    1. Aww, I'm so glad you're able to use it! You can see how I would have a lot of unused makeup bags by now!
      I hope my last bag is good too!

  4. I thought my September bag was going to be my last one but Glymm just informed me that I will be getting the October bag. I'm really hoping that it is better than what we have been getting the last few months.

    1. I always hope that Glymm picks it up the next month, but I think their last good bag was in May when they switched over to the bag. Thank goodness for the cute bags!

  10. I actually picked up the Villainess Dulve En Fuego duo on the Glymm site. No regrets. I love it! And a little goes a long way.

    If I hadn't started a no-buy for October, I would likely have picked up another set. Sinfully delicious!

  11. Off topic, but have you received your Beauty Box 5 for September yet? I haven't and am starting to get concerned o.0

  12. I agree with you completely, that body creme was by far the best thing out of September's Glymm. I loved it so much I ordered the duo sale they had, and I'm so happy I did! I can't get enough of that scent!
