Glymm April 2012 Unboxing/First Impression

Back with another Glymm box. So let’s take a look at what items I got shall we? ::bunneh::

Lucia // Soap No.1 and No.6

[[ These refined jewels are packed with pure botanical extracts and enriched with 100% certified organic Shea Butter. Not only will your skin feel silky-soft, it will also be thoroughly cleansed and smelling so seductive. Go ahead, drape yourself in luxury, you know you want to. Signature scents include: Goat Milk and Linseed and Wild Ginger and Fresh Fig — Package of 8 soaps / $17.50 ]]

I’ve always seen this brand at our Indigo but I never bought anything from them. I would really love to get some of their scented candles but I have yet to get through the scented candle I have right now ::nervous::.

The scent is lovely but I actually don’t really like using bar soaps. Feel like it’s so dirty using them and prefer using gels LOL. I’ll still try it out though, hopefully it makes my skin soft ::kitty::. It notes both of the soaps they gave out but subscribers only get to try out one of them. I got the Goat Milk and Linseed Soap. I think they sell them this size in the pack of 8 while a normal sized bar is $10.00. Pretty small though so I would imagine it’s just to give away for gifts or something.

Atelier Cologne // Orange Sanguine Fragrance

[[ Atelier Cologne is a niche perfume house based in Paris and New York. Each scent is intended to embody a “singular moment” of memory and experience. We present to you Orange Sanguine, “It was the kind of moment you would want to revisit. Everyone was here, gathered on the terrace for breakfast, and the scent of fresh oranges was diffusing in the yellow heat. A symphony of their laughter and waves hitting the cliffs played in the air.” — 30ml / $60.00 & 200ml / $165.00 ]]

I actually got a bit on my hands when uncorking to take a sniff of the scent. It smells so nice ::XO2::! I love the scent of oranges and I think their description makes it even better LOL. So hard to describe scents. You know when you just open up an orange and the scent of it wafts through the air? Kind of like that but a deeper slightly more bitter smell like the orange peel. It’s okay I don’t think you’ll smell like you rubbed orange on yourself though hahaha! Again, if only they gave more for the sample!! I know many people dislike getting these tiny vials as samples because they’re obtainable at stores. However I don’t think I’ve seen this one around before.

By the way, this is a very pricey fragrance!! Although I’m sure my friend’s Thierry Mugler perfume was around $100 for 50ml LOL. But I think my Anna Sui Secret Wish was around $70-$80 for 50ml and $100+ for 100ml D&G Light Blue? Would be more worth it to buy their 200ml bottle, but I don’t know if I want to drop $165 on that ::swirl::.

Free Your Mane // Sulfate Free Hydrating Shampoo & Conditioner

[[ “I’m sorry, I can’t make it, gotta wash my hair.” You will totally use this line after trying this shampoo and conditioner. It gently cleanses hair and scalp while natural oils help rebuild your hair’s delicate moisture balance. With an exclusive blend of Brilliant Baobab Oil from Africa, ultra-moisturizing Argan Oil from Morocco, anti-oxidant rich Pomegranate Seed Oil and Sweet Almond Oil will truly Free Your Mane. — 300ml $16.00 ]]

Curious to try this out. Right now I’m testing out Kao Essential and it works quite well but the cost for the size you get is kind of striking. It lists a lot of different ingredients that help give silky hair so I just hope it doesn’t make it oily!

Mai Couture // Social Gloss

[[ Treat your lips with luxury you simply can’t live without. Not only will this gloss fill in unwanted lines and restore moisture but it will create full kissable lips. Your lips will be healthy and plump. This sheer formula will create a sumptuous and luminous sheen. The secret: A complex mix of plant extracts naturally enhances lip volume effortlessly without the allergen. Your lips will be the life of the party. — 5ml / $28.00 ]]

I showed Leen the lip gloss I got and she said, “You didn’t get a lip gloss.” I gave her a weird look because what else would it be and then she was like, “It’s not a lip gloss… it’s a social gloss!! >:O ” LOLOL! I was just like -_-^^^^. Anyway, it’s in the shade French 125 and looking at the shades they have I think this would’ve been the one I picked if I got a choice so I’m glad they sent me this colour ::^^::.

When I took the box out I felt how light it was and thought it was going to be a disappointing box again. I actually don’t mind this box though. Yes, the sizes are all really measly and I do wish they gave a bigger one but that’s not really their fault is it? I’m pretty sure the brands make their own sized samples to be given out. I felt the brands and items they picked for this one were pretty good. It is more higher end than the Burt’s Bees we received for February and they are purchasable unlike the Ocean polish we got in March. We got one full-sized item this box but I’m glad this gave us the lip gloss this time around from Mai Couture instead of the sheets.

They gave us a “$100 Gift Card” for NuMe. Some people realized it was only for styling tools and hair extensions (excludes haircare and accessories). They were complaining that they thought it was a gift card not a discount since the styling tools and hair extensions are all over $100. I honestly don’t really see the problem here? Isn’t the $100 discount and gift card essentially the same thing? Either way you don’t pay the $100. I didn’t think they’d just give us $100 worth of free stuff anyway especially when this was given to all the subscribers of Glymm ::sweat::. Anyway if anyone wants the code just leave a comment and I’ll post it since I won’t be using it LOL.

Lucia Soap – $2.19
Atelier Cologne – $0.83 – $2.00
Free Your Mane Shampoo & Conditioner – $0.79
Mai Couture Social Gloss – $28.00
Estimated Value // $31.81 – $32.98
