Glymm Bag August Edition

I was pleasantly surprised when I came home this afternoon to find my Glymm box had arrived. I didn’t receive any notification email so this was a pleasant surprise.

This was actually the first beauty box that I received this month which was another surprise.

I have to say that when I picked up the box it was rather light. I couldn’t wait to see what they sent.

It was sent in the typical white box and it was wrapped up in white tissue paper. Hmm I wonder what colot the make up bag will be this month?

As you can see its black and shiny. It kind of looks like bubble wrap design. The only indication that its a Glymm bag is this:

The zipper pull is gold colored. The bag is well made.

As  you can see from the sneak peek, not much there. I am already a little disappointed this month. Once again there is no card to show about what products you got and when I went on the site that I was provided months ago it appears as though they will be emailing us the product description so as of right now I don’t know much about these products so this post will be updated when I get that email.

Naked Princess Naked Shine Luscious Lip Gloss

Love that this has no parabens, or phthalates or synthetic dyes.

These are available in 8 shades of nude.

Its a very small sample and not quite sure how much of this you can get out of it.

Naked Shine Luscious Lip gloss ‘Barely Nude’  Naked Princess (0.25g,  2.08$)
-I have never heard of this brand before getting it in my Glymm bag. From the packaging it says that its light weight, non tacky and that its infused with shea butter, almond oil and antioxidants. Is suppose to give your lips a plump look. I am curious about this product and look forward to trying it out.

Foundation Powder Paper ‘St. Barts’ Mai Couture (2 sheets 0.96$)
-I have heard of Mai Couture before as I have gotten this in other boxes before but I have never used them. I like that its paraben free and talc free. I will probably give them a try in the fall when I might need a little color.

Mineral Clay Mask  Vitamin &  Sea (about 5g, 1.48$)
-Another new to me brand. Its a mineral clay mask. Its got a thick constistency to it and its like a grayish mud look to it. Not quite sure if this is a one sample use or not. Would I try this? Probably but I will need to check it out before putting it on my face.

Crème hydratante régulatrice G-1 de Benta Berry (3ml,  2.20$)
-This is from Paris so I am guessing it could be a high end product. From reading the tube it appears to be for both men and women and its 100% natural which is a plus for me. It smells really good and not quite sure what it is. I probably could get a use or two out of it. Actually the scent is Benta Berry which I have never heard of before.

Delicate Wash  The Laundress (15ml,  0.66$)
-This was interesting to get but another product I like that is non toxic, its biodegradable,  allergen free and its not test on animals. I have never heard of this before but will give it a try. There is just some things you want to keep looking new so this would be perfect.

I love how they package this. Its like a wax paper envelope. Love the post card it reminds me of NYC and was curious if it was that but I couldn’t find any info about it at all.

I have another cologne by this company and loved it so I am excited to try this one. I am sure I will enjoy it.

Doesn’t this make you think of NYC? Oh how I miss NYC.

Parfum Vanille Insensée d’Atelier Cologne (about 2ml,  4.33$)
– I have gotten another one from this company before and really liked it. I tried not to use it all the time because I wanted it to last so its nice to know I have another one I can switch it up with. I loved the smell on me and more so after wearing it for awhile. The only thing I don’t like is the bottle and the top. I wish they all could make these samples into spritzers. So much easier.

So this is this month’s glymm bag and quite honestly its not my favorite Glymm bag. I miss the days of at least a full size sample and the box. I am really on the fence with this and not sure what I am going to do part of me says to throw the make up bag in and cancel but another part of me says to stick it out because if they get better then that means you will be back on a waiting list and its been months for some people.

I think I will give myself a little more time to see what they are like and if nothing changes perhaps canceling at the end of the year.

What did you get in your box?

    It looks like the value of the bag this month barely covers what we’ve paid. Interesting products….but not much of them.

    This was my fourth bag/box and this is the first time I can genuinely say that I am totally disappointed in Glymm. It seems like switching to the bag was just a ploy to stop sending large or full-sized products. I am also considering canceling my subscription and moving over to GlossyBox
