Surprise! October Glymm Bag Review!

So I didn't expect to be writing this review this month. I was told that my 1 year subscription was finished in September, but behold it was actually finished this month. I am really glad that I received this bag as I love the actual bag itself but also Glymm really stepped it up and sent some great samples and sample sizes.

Even though this months box was really good I decided to stay unsubscribed from Glymm at this time. I am swimming in samples right now so I need a break from sample boxes for at least a few months. Once my stash of samples are gone I will probably sign up for boxes again. Now onto what is in this months bag!

Because October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month Glymm sent out a pink quilted makeup bag that matches the style of bags we have been receiving for the past two months. They also sent a pink ribbon pin which will look great on my new black winter coat. October also saw the return of the PRODUCT CARD! I was so happy when I saw this. I guess they will be having the card online and included in the bag from now on, and they encourage you to recycle it when you are finished.

 Baby Buttercreme

Sample Size - 2 oz/$9
Full Size - 59mL/$9, 237mL/$32, 473mL/$58
Usage - Up to 5 uses
This daily maintenance hydration creme softens like no other and banishes dry hair while adding a plump sheen.
My Thoughts - At first I thought this was a skin moisturizer, but after some investigation found that it is a moisturizer for your hair. I have kinda straight, kinda wavy, semi-dry hair so I think that this may be of some use to me. Because of its thick texture I don't think I will need much at all so it will probably last a lot longer then 5 uses. This also smells absolutely amazing!

Johnson's Baby Oil

Sample Size - 88mL/$1
Usage - Up to 6 months

Introducing Glymm Mama! While waiting for the special edition box, this Johnson & Johnson baby oil is perfect for taking off your makeup - it even removes that mascara that you're about to try. It's also ideal for shaving, resulting in silky smooth legs. Get mega moisture from this multi-purpose tried and true remedy.

My Thoughts - This was an extra product this month so Glymm did not include the full size and value on the card. I guess they just added this product to promote their new box for moms and moms-to-be. You can buy this size at Dollarama for $1 so that's the value I gave it. My skin has been really dry lately so I cant wait to try this out.

H2O Hydration

Sample Size - 10mL/$12
Full Size - 50mL/$60
Usage - Up to 10 uses
This moisturizer will show your skin a good time. With more benefits than you can count, you can be sure to see some drastic results.
My Thoughts - I am so so so excited to get another sample of this cream. I have been using the precious sample we received and I love it! It makes my skin feel amazing. I would totally buy the full size if it wasn't $60. This cream doesn't have a smell which is nice and leaves my skin supple, and moisturized without being greasy.

Every Morning Sun Whip

Sample Size - 10mL/$7.60
Full Size - 50mL/$38
Usage - Up to 2 uses
Protect your delicate skin from harmful rays all year round with this daily sunscreen.
My Thoughts - I know it's bad but I don't use sunscreen on a daily basis because I have yet to find one that doesn't leave my skin oily. This seems really light and fragrance free so I am glad to get a sample to try.

 Lightening Lash Mascara

Sample Size - 1 tube/$14
Full Size - 1 tube/$14
Usage - Up to 6 months
Get noticed with superstar lashes. Lengthen, amplify and bring each lash back to life.
My Thoughts - I have never heard of Femme Couture but this looks like a pretty good mascara. I really like the wand and actually needed a new mascara so this came at the perfect time!

Lash Card

Sample Size - 2 cards/$1.40
Full Size - 10 cards/$6.99
Usage - Up to 4 uses
Say bye-bye to clumpy and smudged mascara. This card will save you time and make your lashes lovably flawless.
My Thoughts - So this isn't something I would normally buy. You can just put a credit card or business card there to avoid smudges. I might give these away because I cant see myself using them.

Overall Value - $45 (roughly)


  1. Great review! I am kind of happy it is better than the last box!


  2. Overall not too shabby, I wouldn't mind getting the mascara as I always love trying new ones:)

  3. I had the same feelings on the bag also! Thought it was the cutest one we have ever received! My subscription is over next months so I am told .. Think I will stay unsubscribed as well!

  4. I like your new blog.
    If your sunscreen feels too oily try Colorescience sunscreen powder. It stays on in the water and no greassy feel.
    You can buy a mini size at Essential Day Spa's website for around $12- they are in Canada, so no duty.
    If you like the product, the best deal is the one in the metal canister- you get 20+ grams powder,while the fancy brush has 6.

    I really like the Cyber Derm creams, might use my Glymm points for some.
    Here is my review of the Oct bag w bonus nail polish:


  5. thanks for linking up your review!! i actually follow your blog through bloglovin' :) really enjoyed reading your thoughts. i too am swimming in samples!!

  6. you're one of the lucky ones that got two different samples (for the H2O moisturizer and sun whip) I got two of the H2O and i've seen some people got two of the sun whip!
