Glymm September 2012 - A Farewell Post

Glymm, Glymm, Glymm our relationship has been long and at some points it was great and at others it was down-right disappointing, but in the end I feel we have grown together and now it is time to say goodbye.

Alas, this is my finally Glymm Box. I didn't think I would feel so sentimental and kinda upset that this is the last box I will be receiving. I have been so disappointed the last few months with the products that Glymm has been sending and I was almost ready to cancel my yearly subscription early, but I am glad I stuck it out until the end.

I was very tempted to sign up for the Free Nail Polish Promotion, but I don't feel as though the nail polish alone will be worth my $12/month. At the beginning Glymm was giving out more makeup and now I see them as a skincare/haircare sample bag and that is not what I am looking for. Maybe in the future if they start sending out more makeup I will subscribe again.

If you would like to sign up for Glymm you can see my past years boxes by searching "Glymm" in the Search My Blog Gadget. If you would like to get the Free Nail Polish Promo you must join by September 30 using the code below.

 Now onto what I received in this months bag!

Sample Value - 2oz for $5.65 & $5.88
Full Size - 8.5oz for $24 & $25

Shampoo - Ideal for both color treated and virgin hair, this Shampoo gently cleanses while infusing moisture and nutrients, leaving hair nourished.

Conditioner - Rather than coating hair, this conditioner penetrates the hair shaft to moisturize and repair hair from the inside out.

My Thoughts - I am glad that these are not packet samples and I'm glad that we got to try both the shampoo and the conditioner together. I hate when sample boxes only send out half of the combo. They smell amazing and I'm excited to try a Vegan Hair Product. I'm finding that I am getting a lot of product buildup so hopefully this will help purify my hair. These came at the perfect time because I am going to a wedding in Port Credit in 2 weeks and I really didn't want to pack big bottles.

Sample Value - 10ml(roughly) for $0.90
Full Size - 177ml/$15.75

Whip your skin into shape and 'redefine bad' with this thick, yet light and quite soluble body crème - much like edible whipped heavy cream. Yum.

You can buy the Villainess Whipped Body Creme by clicking the link.

My Thoughts - This smells so good and exactly like a Vanilla Bean Frappuccino from Starbucks! I have never used a whipped body cream before...the texture is different but I like it, and the sample size is perfect for your purse. It absorbs quickly into the skin leaving barely, if any, oily residue. I may buy the full size of this once my sample runs out.

Sample Value - 3ml/$1.90
Full Size - 30ml/$19

The high-quality super moisturizing face cream for girls is made from 100% natural active ingredients: apple, prickly pear, strawberry, kiwi, kigelia africana and macadamia oil.

My Thoughts - I hated the BentaBerry cream we got last month and I am a little upset that they would send the same sample two months in a row. Face cream is face cream whether the name says for girls or for boys and girls. Plus this sample smells horrible and is not something I can see myself putting on my face.

Sample Value - 2 wipes/$0.83
Full Size - 24 wipes/$9.99

Gently wipe your eyes & lips with love and good intention. Soon they will be sparkling clean. No need to rinse.

My Thoughts - I wasn't overly impressed with the nail polish wipes we got a few months ago, so I am not expecting to love these wipes. I also am not the biggest fan of lavender so I am not sure if I will use these.

Overall, I am pretty happy with this bag. Although I am sad to see Glymm go this now opens the door for me to bring in a new sample box. I am looking for one with more makeup and less skincare in it. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know in the comments below

Value of September Glymm Box - $15.16


  1. Not fair. I only got 1 MAKEUP REMOVER whip. UGH.

    1. Really! I would email them and see if one can be added to your next box. Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

  2. I am not a fan of the lavender scent either, but the wipes are quite large and did a good job of taking off all my eye makeup and didn't irritate my skin! I used the shampoo/conditionner, the smell is ok, I didn't notice a big difference but it's a nice product, the benta berry cream is not as bad as last month's but still don't like it and the cream is nice , goes on ok, just not a big fan of the scent but like you said it's a nice size to keep in your purse! Im debating on staying with glymm as well because of the crappy bags the last couple months, but I'll stick for another month or two and see how it goes.

  3. Love the new layout! I was never subscribed to Glymm but have always kept up with the months boxing, it was such a shame that the products weren't that great!

    1. Thanks I've been working on the layout for a while! I'm just debating now if I should change my URL to match my new title. The thing is that my GFC followers won't be able to click to my posts in their blog lists because they are following my old URL

  4. Starbox! Starbox by Starlooks is all full sized makeup. Granted it is from their own line, Starlooks. But I find the quality quite good. I have one of their eyeliners and I loved it! I'm expecting their September box soon so I'll post on it for sure! :)

  5. I am expecting my last Glossy Box this month. Decided to put my money towards something else, I have just been underwhelmed the last couple of months, time to move on.

  6. I'm sad about Glymm too..my fingers on the trigger to cancel and I don't know why I just can't! I thought of signing up for the promotion as well...but I worry they won't even be in business another year!

    I've been using the shampoo and conditioner and it's not doing very well to colour protect. My red dye, even after the 6th shampoo is coming out like crazy!
