Glymm Bag July 2012 / Skincare Overload

Glymm Bag July 2012 came in an orange cosmetic bag, it looked promising at first, but ended up being mediocre at best since all of the samples were skincare or haircare related. I didn't want to say it, but, yes, I was a little bit disappointed. I believe my last box will be August!

C+ is the grade for this month's box...and I am in the process of sending a cancellation notice to the Glymm team. Although, I love their overall brand. I love their website and the creative team is doing an excellent job maintaing the look and feel of their graphics. Sorry, but, it didn't work out. 

However, there was a product, the Dirt Salt Scrub, that I absolutely loved and ended up buying! It's quite pricy, at $45 for 12oz, but of wonderful texture; it works well for acne-prone skin!

Product List:
Favourite Product - Dirt - Salt Scrub
FULL SIZE: 12 OZ/$45.00
Dirt never sounded so delicious. This delectable body treatment will exfoliate and reveal a glow that you never knew you had.

Mini Haul / Revlon, theBalm, NYX & More

I've dramatically decreased my makeup and skincare spendings in the last few months because I've been subscribing to both Glymm and GlossyBox Canada. I am using the samples that came in sampling boxes, and everything else I own until it's all empty. I feel such extreme guilt if I don't use the products I buy. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to resist these impulse buys:

  • Missha M Vita BB Cream with SPF 20 - I love it! Skin felt so smooth afterwards
  • Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream in Light - not too shabby, review to come!
  • theBalm Shady Lady eye shadow in Caught in the Act - impressive! and it was on sale
  • Sally Hansen Salon Effects Polish Strips in Kitty, Kitty - these are purrrfect for a night out!
  • Nicka K Body Shimmer - perfect for that bronzed body look
  • Revlon Grow Luscious by Fabulash with Colorstay Eyeliner - this mascara is awful, and one of the worst for summer weather. I think I will be throwing it out, but keeping the eyeliner
  • NYX Shadow Eye Pencil in Cottage Cheese - I love it! I've been using it daily. 

P.S. Don't forget to enter my Summer Giveaway!

Glossy Box Canada / June Edition

Summer is officially here! And so is the June edition of Glossy Box Canada. Ah, the box was incredibly heavy. I was very excited to open it - and it did not disappoint. Every month so far has been good - with an array of products from many different brands. The one brand that is often in every box is definitely Wella, but this brand produces high quality products. So far, we've been receiving either Wella or Sebastian, and both worked wonderfully on my thick, unmanageable hair. If you haven't tried Glossy Box, try it here.
