Glymm February 2013

This was my last bag for Glymm. I unsubscribed after they decided to raise the price even for their long time subscribers. It’s now at $15 for everyone. I was already thinking of stopping my subscription with them. I didn’t yet though because my grandma said that if I was thinking of dropping Glymm, she’ll take over my subscription. At $15 though I don’t think it’s worth it for anyone.

Glymm changed their shipping date to end of the month instead of the middle of the month. Not a great start to things. I received my February Glymm bag in March. It wasn’t even worth it.

This is one of the most pointless products to give us; along with the hair extensions they gave us back then. Why do I say that? To use this product, we need to use a UV/LED light. Why even give us this polish???

Full Size: $20.00/6mL || Received: ??

At first I thought they gave us the same sample two months in a row. Turns out it came in the same packaging as the eyelash serum. I think a lot of people got thrown off by that.

Glymm December 2012

December was a disappointing month for Glymm. None of the brands are really well known and overall Glymm’s December products just look really cheap.

[[ Suncoat offers a complete line of water-based nail polish products as well as natural organic color cosmetics. Standing out as the only long lasting and quick-drying water-based nail polish is formulated based on an innovative technology. ]]
Full Size: ?? || Received: ??
I don’t know if the pink product was a nail polish or not, I presume it is. It came frozen since it’s water-based and the weather was super cold outside. I think the freezing somehow ruined the formula. Now there’s a chunk of white stuff and the handle didn’t seem to come with a brush. I’m guessing it got stuck in that white stuff :(

Glamorous Cosmetics // Lip/Eye Pencil

Glymm November 2012

November Glymm bag?! Really, Carmen?! Yes that’s right I’m doing a post on the November bag when December is almost over. I know I haven’t updated for (almost) 3 weeks, but I have a really good reason. I had to study for the dreaded finals so updating the blog was really the last thing on my mind! My scheduled posts ran out right before I had to start studying too! Time to play catch up again. Let’s get on with this month’s items though, shall we?

I noticed that the products card is back this month in the form of a mini pamphlet! So maybe it was actually supposed to be back this month and not last month like I originally thought?

LYS Parisien Professionnel // Moisturizing Shampoo & Moisturizing Balm

A great success to unite a copra (coconut) foaming base with a rare and precious oil from Morocco. Discover the properties of this soft and creamy foam that gently cleanses and moisturizes your hair and scalp. Argan Oil is rich in E and F vitamins with unique nutritional properties to counter the damaging effects of age and climate on your hair and scalp. || Edible oil extracted from the Argan tree, Argan oil is nature’s rare richness. It has been used for centuries to protect hair from drying effects of sun, sea salt, pollution, chemicals and cold.

(Shampoo) Full Size: $24.00/500mL || Received: $2.88/60mL
(Conditioner) Full Size: $24.00/500mL || Received: $2.88/60mL

Don’t know if you guys can see it, but my stuff are frozen and there’s even a piece of ice stuck on the bottom of the conditioner LOL. Took a picture of it as soon as I got the products and it was too cold outside. Later on it exploded in the bag when it defrosted ::sweat::.

I tried googling to read about this brand and to see what else they offered, but nothing’s showing up. I’m assuming they have no official page?

dirt. // sweet + spicy sugar scrub

[[ A relaxation ritual. Richly crafted, this abundant blend of sugar crystals, nutrient-rich antioxidants, and essential oils, constitutes a comprehensive exfoliation treatment. It features honey and chamomile extracts along with Vitamin E. It also includes nourishing essential oils like coconut oil, lemon oil, avocado oil, jojoba oil, and apricot kernels for radiant skin. creamy vanilla and smoldering sandalwood are entwined to create a sweet aroma with a hint of spice. ]]
Full Size: $45.00/354mL || Received: $1.91/15mL

At first I thought I got the same sample again. Turns out I did get a sugar scrub from dirt. in my July bag, but that one was purify + glow. I’m surprised Glymm didn’t give me the bar soap from Villainess instead, but it’s okay because I don’t use bar soaps LOL.

The New Black // Ombre 5-Piece Nail Polish (Haze)

[[ Founders of THE NEW BLACK created high-quality color stories that make it possible to try all the latest nail trends. They feature limited-edition sets of pre-curated, compatible colors inspired by the runway. The formulations are long-wearing, ultra-glossy, fast-drying and chip resistant.

The Beehive // Alice Blue

[[ Alice Blue – a deliciously fresh floral bouquet dipped in warm vanilla with a delicate, fruity touch. ]]
Full Size: $35.00/100mL || Received: $0.25/0.7mL

The estimated value for this bag is really low, but the sizes and stuff we got aren’t too bad. I think the fragrance sample, especially, didn’t help with the value of the bag since it wasn’t even 1mL!
