This is my very last Glymm Bag (for now?) and it is bittersweet as it was my very first beauty box subscription I signed up for using a 50% off Teambuy coupon for my first month. I remember being so excited when I saw the old pink box arrive. Let’s be nostalgic and have a look at what I received in my very first Glymm Box shall we?
Things have changed since then, haven’t they? We’ve all noticed that the quality of the bags has decreased in terms of what they end up being worth in value and we no longer see any “big” names anymore, which I personally don’t mind as Glymm has introduced us to brands we’ve never heard of. Hello Villainess?! Love the body scrub!
This month’s Glymm Bag is centered around breast cancer awareness and begins with a quilted pink makeup bag which I actually really love. I love pink and I would love a pair of quilted patent leather pumps just like this bag!
Say bye bye to clumpy and smudged mascara. This card will save you time and make your lashes lovably flawless.
Thoughts: I’ve always thought these mascara shields were pretty gimmicky. I think any firm piece of cardboard will do just fine and I don’t need to pay to have someone cut out a curved piece of cardboard for me. They’re pretty pricey too at 10 for $6.99! I’ll use the samples for sure, but I know I would never buy them on my own.
Full size: 10 cards/$6.99
I received: 2 cards/$1.40
Femme Couture Lightening Lash Mascara in Blackest Black
Get noticed with superstar lashes. Lengthen, amplify and bring each lash back to life.
Thoughts: I now get scared when I see mascara samples because I know that by the time I get to it, it may have expired! I have so many in my stash! I wish I could go through mascara faster than I do. I use it every day and yet I have never used up an entire tube. This full size product looks promising though with its crazy amplifying brush and all!
Full size: $14.00/11.3g
I received: *FULL SIZE*
Cyberderm H2O Hydration and Every Morning Sun Whip
This moisturizer will show your skin a good time. With more benefits than you can count, you can be sure to see some drastic results.
Protect your delicate skin from harmful rays all year round with this daily sunscreen.
Thoughts: What? No syringes this time? The last time we saw Cyberderm products, the method of delivery was so cool! I actually had a great time pushing down the plunger and seeing the amount of product go down! So, all of us have received H2O Hydration before in July’s Glymm Bag and if memory serves me well, it was just ok for me. I’m glad we all get a chance to try out a sunscreen since Cyberderm markets themselves as “the sunscreen company”.
Full size: H2O Hydration - 50mL/$60.00, Every Morning Sun Whip – 50mL/$38.00
I received: Say 5mL each? It doesn’t say. H2O Hydration - 5mL/$6.00, Every Morning Sun Whip – 5mL/$3.80
Miss Jessie’s Baby Buttercreme
This daily maintenance hydration creme softens like no other and banishes dry hair while adding plump sheen.
Thoughts: Hmmm, the packaging and advertising sound appealing to me…This looks like really thick stuff so I’m going to have to be careful in how much I use on my hair. I’m scared of it looking to lifeless. The name of the product sounds more like a body butter though…I’m sure I’m not the only one that thought this!
Full size: 59mL/$9, 237mL/$32, 473mL/$58
I received: *FULL TRAVEL SIZE*
Johnson & Johnson Johnson’s Baby Oil
Thoughts: This was a bonus in this month’s Glymm bag. I thought this was a cute addition to this month’s Glymm bag and a sweet way to introduce Glymm Mama. I haven’t used baby oil since I was…a baby?
Total Value of Glymm Bag: Approximately $34.20
And there’s more! I, too, took advantage of the Villainess duo that Glymm had on special a few weeks ago. I couldn’t say no to that glorious scent of freshly baked cookies! My order also took a little bit longer to process so Glymm was nice enough to throw in a full size Principessa Lip Balm!
Isn’t it a little bit of a coincidence that my very first Glymm Box had a full size Principessa Lip Balm and so does my last order with Glymm? It’s like I’ve come full circle! Glymm has steadily introduced novel beauty brands into my beauty repertoire and for that I have to say thank you Glymm! I won’t call this a permanent goodbye, but maybe a “see you soon”!
