January Glymm Box

Its that time again, for my January Glymm Box Post. This month I was very disappointed in the box. Even more disappointed then last month's box. I didn't find that the products in this month's box were really "deluxe", and one of the products was practically empty. I really hope that the next months get better because the last few months Glymm has really been disappointing me.

KAIA NATURALS/Juicy Bamboo Facial Cleansing Cloths
Full Size: 30 cloths/$17.99
Sample Value: 1 cloth/$0.60
On the Card: One Cloth, multiple functions! Juicy bamboo facial cloths that effectively and gently sweep away makeup, dirt and oil for clear, fresh skin! Soaked in Vitamins and made with 99% natural ingredients, which make your skin feel soft, instead of stripped and tight. These urban facial cloths are the perfect solution for the girl on the go!
My Thoughts: Although I am always looking to try out new cleansing cloths, as they make makeup removal super easy and are great for nights when I am too lazy to wash my face, I was very unpleased to see this as one of the products in this months box. We were given 1 cleansing cloth. ONE! To me that is not very deluxe. How am I supposed to know if this product really works or doesn't make me break out after 1 use. And with the steep price tag of $17.99 for 30 cloths this is not something I would be willing to purchase to find out if I really like it. I think that I will stay with my cleansing cloths from Dollarama. Be on the look for a review post coming up.

VASANTI COSMETICS/BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator
Full Size: 120 ml/$34.00
Sample Value: 12g/$3.40
On the Card: Alright beauties its time to dramatically improve your skin's texture to reveal softer, brighter and younger looking skin! This aloe-enriched cleanser brightens with powerful papaya enzymes to give radiance, exfoliates with dermatologist grade micro-crystals which help smooth and hydrate your gentle skin.
My Thoughts: When I saw this product I was excited to try it because I have been really impressed with all the other Vasanti products I have tried. However, my sample was practically empty. It's like somebody used it already. I barely had enough to use on my face one time. Really not impressed Glymm!

Full Size: 0.28 oz/$21.00
Sample Value: 0.085 oz/$6.38
On the Card: From the upscale salons of Beverly Hills, we bring you the brow expert, Anastasia's clear brow gel. Awarded as Allure's editor's choice, this brow gel sets your perfect brow look and keeps brows in place all day. This best-selling formula tames unruly brows without leaving them stiff, flaky or sticky.
My Thoughts: After using this product for the first time it was like light shone down and angels sang. This product is AMAZING!!!! My brows stayed perfect all day until I washed my face at the end of the day. Love, love, love this product. I will definitely be buying the full size when my sample runs out. The consistency isn't sticky and it doesnt flake at all during the day. The smell of this product though is a tad bit on the chemical side but it isnt something that you smell all day.

BURT'S BEES/Nourishing Milk & Honey Body Lotion
Full Size: 170g/$12.99
Sample Value: 14.16g/$1.08
On the Card: Burt's Bees new and improved body lotion is clinically proven to restore moisture and replenish dry skin. Canada's favourite natural beuty brand uses nature's best resources such as milk and honey to soothe, soften, and hydrate dry skin, without making it feel greasy. The coconut and vitamin E deliver beneficial nutrients to the skin.
My Thoughts: I have never tried any Burt's Bees products before but I have always wanted to. This lotion is realy moisturizing and I really liked how soft it made my skin feel, however the smell of this lotion was just terrible. My mom thought it smelt nice and tried to explain that because it is an all natural product it is supposed to smell natural, but it honestly made me want to throw up. I had to wash my hands right after applying it.

Full Size: 2g/$16.00
Sample Value: 2g/$16.00
On the Card: Cargo eye pencils offer a cutting edge formulation! An incredibly high pigment pencil that delivers intense colour combined with a smudge-resistant formula for immediate and longwearing results. Rich, deep colour that glides on easily with just one application and minimal skipping.
My Thoughts: Really happy that I got a black eyeliner. I saw other people got brown pencils and I would have been really upset if I got a brown pencil. The formula is not as creamy as I would like, and it takes a few swipes to really get a pigmented black line but it's a full size product so I cant complain.

Bonus: Coupon for a free lip stain from the Glymm Boutique.
Value: $25
My Thoughts: I like this better then the normal jelly beans because I dont usually eat them anyway, but having to buy something to get the free product kinda sucks.

What I paid: $10
What it's worth: $27.46 roughly (this is w/o the coupon for free Lip Shine)

Disclaimer: I bought this Glymm Box with my own money. All thoughts are honest and my own.


  1. Dec & Jan Glymm Boxs just sucked. I have cancelled my subscription with them. LB gave up in Oct. Now I am just with Topbox & signed up for Glossybox.

    1. Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting! If I hadn't already paid for a year subscription I would of cancelled my Glymm subscription. I may check out Topbox or Glossybox when this subscription is done.

    2. I am glad I only did month-month so I could cancel at anytime.

    Glossybox is here in Canada now.

  3. Cool review! That's a shame your face scrub empty was wack - that was my fave part of this month's box!

  4. Chelsey! I love your blog :) You are fantastic!

    1. Thank you Lacey! You already know how much I adore your blog! We need to have another Facebook Chat soon! <3

  5. I agree about Vasanti - that is the best part of the box for me. The Cargo pencil is nice as well. Did you contact them? They might give you another sample.

    I'm going to be doing beauty box reviews starting next month!

    1. Hi CityGirl! Thank you so much for leaving a comment. I am glad that you enjoyed my post. I was definitely disappointed that it was empty, but they said that they will send me an extra treat next month to make up for it. Follow my blog if you would like to see more reviews,I am defintely going to check your blog out. :)
