A Glymmer of Hope!


First Look, Glymm, Samples, Subscription / Monday, January 23rd, 2012
Hey everyone!
Yesterday I was finally able to get to the post office to pick up my very first Glymm Box! Being an incredibly impatient person, I had already peeked around the blog world and found out what was in this months box (bad!) and I was really excited to get my hands on it!
This adorable light pink box came packaged in a matching coloured shipping box (what a cute touch!) so you know right away where its from! To be honest, I wanted to wait and take pictures while I was opening the box but I ended up opening it right in the parking lot in my car haha! Here is what I found:
These boxes are beautifully wrapped, it’s like receiving a present in the mail! I always appreciate the small touches that companies include such as the embellished ribbon and lots of information about the included products.
Glymm includes a pamphlet describing all the products & their “full sized” price. I think this is a great touch because whenever I get a sample of something I want to know how much it will cost to get a full size and base my review and consideration of the product on that (there’s nothing worse than falling in love with a product you can never afford the full size of!).
My first Glymm box inluded:
Burt’s Bees Milk & Honey body lotion (two sample sachets)
Vasanti Brighten Up! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator (12g tube)
Kaia Facial Towlette (1 towelette)
Anastasia Brow Gel (Deluxe Sample size)
Cargo Eyeliner – Black (Full size)
I am super excited to try this Burt’s Bees Milk & Honey Body Lotion! I’ve eyed this up a few times while shopping but never end up purchasing it. I’ve heard really good things about it and I love that it’s all natural. I used to have another Milk & Honey body lotion that was discontinued so hopefully this can take its place.
Now I already know I love this product as I own the full size tube! This is Vasanti’s Brighten Up! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator. I’m happy to have this as a travel size/back up though and I’m very excited other Glymm girls will get a chance to try this amazing exfoliator!
I love makeup removing towelettes. These towelettes by Kaia are going to be great because I’m usually extremely tired or lazy by the time I go to bed so having a packaged of these on my bedside table is a must! I’m also always looking for natural alternatives so I’m thrilled to try these out! I really hope I like them and if I do will definitely purchase the full size!
It’s funny that this was included in my Glymm box because the day before I was just thinking, “I’m out of brow gel, I need to buy some more,” then there it was! I’ve never tried any of Anastasia products and I use brow gel everyday so I’m excited to be able to try this Brow Gel by Anastasia. And with the amount of brow gel you use on a daily basis, this should last a long time!
Last but certainly not least is a full sized Cargo Eye Pencil in black! When I first saw this in the box I expected it to be some crazy colour that I wouldn’t get much wear out of but I was so happy when I saw it was black! Who doesn’t need (or want to try) a new black eyeliner? Since I use one everyday I always welcome another one!
This is a pencil that needs sharpening (hopefully it won’t be one that breaks every time you try) and has quite a lot of product. I’ve been happy with my other Cargo purchases in the past so hopefully this will live up to my expectations!
This pencil glides on super easily and keeps a sharp point which is great for thin lines. It isn’t an intense black but it will be great for a softer black eye with light definition.
Overall, I love my first Glymm box! I can’t wait for the next one and it is definitely worth the money. The full sized Cargo Pencil alone is worth $16! Do you subscribe to any monthly sample boxes? If so which ones?
