January Glymm Box / Winter Beauty Essentials

The January edition of my Glymm subscription arrived today! Finally! I've been waiting since January 13th, the day when I was sent a shipping notification. I am sure I am one of the last girls to receive it as Vancouver is on the other side of Canada ( the company is based out of Montreal). The box is worth the wait!

My initial reaction: The cute little jar of jelly beans is not included. How unfortunate! I believe it makes the experience extra sweet... extra girly and indulging. I've been looking forward to each month's special flavor of jelly beans. I am hoping the February edition would have some...perhaps pink, white, and red beans in honor of Valentine's.

Otherwise, I am happy with my box, and the fact that the Cargo eyeliner is not black but light brown, a perfect shade because I have way too many black eyeliners.

I would rate this month's box as a 4/5. And will be continuing with Glymm's service. Now looking forward to February! Valentine's themed, perhaps?
