August 2012 Glymm Bag

This month I had two different reactions to the August Glymm Bag. At first when I was seeing what other girls were receiving I was very disappointed about this box with all the one time use samples. However, when Glymm sent me my product card by email I saw that I would be receiving a full size Coccolily Nail Polish and was really excited. I definitely think that the nail polish and bag paid for this month and all of the other samples were just bonuses.

Now I am excited that I was one of the lucky ones to receive a full size nail polish but I also think that it is wrong of Glymm to put out different bags with such a different value range. Glossybox did this last month and many girls including myself were very disappointed. Something Glymm should do is make sure that every girl is getting the same value of product in their bag. Something I like this month is that Glymm did not include the bag in the value of the box. Glymm you finally listened, good for you!!!

Vitamine & Sea Mineral Clay Mask
Sample Value - 5mL/$1.48
Full Size - 210mL/$62
Sample Usage - Up to 3 uses

This natural facial mask made with clay directly from the Dead Sea will tingle as it softly exfoliates, eliminates toxins, promotes circulation, cleanses and strengthens your skin.
This organic mask is enriched with vitamins B1, B2, C, A, D and E from sweet almond oil to pamper your skin and a touch of honey that will protect from daily free radical damage and balance your skins moisture, and work immediate wonders on all skin types giving a soft, tight, sexy, radiant glow.
I am getting more into masks these days so I am excited to try this one out. With the size of the sample I may only get 1 or 2 uses but it will still be nice to try a more high end mask. The full size is really expensive so I probably wont buy it.

Coccolily Nail Polish in #1 Fancy
Sample Value - 15mL/$12
Full Size - 15mL/$12

Exclusively created by Coccolily. These colors are unique just like you.
Coccolily’s favorite color is pink and so designer, Naana Tennachie Yankey created five different shades of pink for you. Wear one of these colors and you’ll feel the magic right away. Get ready to be noticed for all the right reasons and enjoy life with the color of love.
So excited for this polish! I got such a nice berry toned pink. It went on like a dream no streaks, dried quickly and was very glossy even without a top coat. I thought I already had a polish like this because it looks exactly like a Revlon polish I got at the Dollarama, but that polish turned out more red and this is a true berry pink.

Naked Princess Naked Shine Lip Gloss in Barely Coral
Sample Value - 0.25g/$2.20
Full Size - 2.96mL/$26
Sample Usage - Up to 14 uses

This sexy gloss stimulates collagen, is non-tacky and plumps your lips ever so gently.


"Infused with Shea Butter, Sweet Almond Oil, Moroccan Vanilla, & Antioxidants for radiance & shine. A collagen-producing Peptide helps to plump lips without irritation to reduce the appearance of fine lines. It may be worn alone or over other lip products.

Apply a single coat for a sheer effect or layer for more intense color.
This gloss was inspired by the notion that a lip gloss can a healthy formula. Studies show that women ingest over 2lbs of lip products in their lifetime.
This the tiniest lip gloss sample I have ever seen! But it is so flippin' cute! :) I love the color it is the perfect nude on my lips. This gloss is very smooth and not sticky at all and the scent is really nice too! If Glymm had a promo on these on their website I might buy one.

Mai Couture Blush Papier
Sample Value - 2 sheets.$0.90
Full Size - 50 sheets/$22.50
Sample Usage - Up to 4 uses

The Papier collection by Mai Couture exudes novelty and modernism.
Whether you need coverage, color or highlights you’ll find a quick and effective solution here.


Beauty on-the-go? Mai Couture has the solution: Blush, foundation, bronzer and it’s all without a brush! Add color to your cheeks anytime with highly pigmented blush papier or get an illuminated and flawless complexion and touch up your makeup with their one of a kind foundation papier. Just rub the paper on your cheeks for instant results.
I am so glad that I received the blush papers this month instead of the bronzing one I got last time. The bronzing paper was way too dark and shimmery so it went right into the trash. These papers look like they will give a nice pink flush so I am excited to try them.

Bentaberry G-1 moisturizing Face cream for boys and girls - Regulating line
Sample Value - 3mL/$3.30
Full Size - 30mL/$22
Sample Usage - Up to 7 uses

This cream is made from 100% natural active ingredients: burdock, jasmine, mandarin, blueberry, white dead-nettle and zinc pidolate.


Enriched with the BENTA BERRY regulating moisturizing complex, it combines white dead-nettle with the botamix (jasmine, burdock and mandarin), to control excess sebum and purify skin. Skin is mattified, soothed and balanced. Redness and blemishes on the face are diminished. Its subtle fragrance was designed by a famous perfumer for both boys and girls.
Although this sample is really tiny I am very excited to try it out. I tried it on the back of my hand and it was really light and absorbed quickly into the skin. It didn't leave an oily residue and I really like the clean fresh scent. If I really like this cream I may buy the full size.

Value of August Glymm Bag - $19.88


  1. I wish I got your bag! I think you're right about the value range - it should be similar for all us Glymm subscribers. Great post!

  2. you got a lot of different things than I've seen in other reviews! much better samples, I'd say!

    Check out my LippyGirl Blusher giveaway!

  3. I got all the same things ... except my lip gloss was "barely blush" and the nail polish... Which is quite disappointing actually since not everyone received a nail polish and don't see why not...

  4. Ugh, I wish I'd gotten the polish. This month was so disappointing for me. Also, the colour you received is really gorgeous!

  5. I wish I received the nail polish too. sad face.

  6. I wrote Glymm an email about how disappointed I was that some people got a full-sized nail polish while I got a laundry detergent that I'll never use. They responded to my email the next day and gave me some Glymm points to make up for it. I appreciate the gesture, but all I can say is that September's bag better be pretty awesome.

  7. Same thoughts here, I received a hair conditioner that didn't even really work! Sample of Conditioner does not equal Full-sized nail polish no matter how you do the math! It really is a beautiful colour too! :)
