Glymm Update: Free ANTI-Glymm box from Nail Polish Canada

I’ve been a long-time Glymm Beauty Box customer before finally pulling the plug and cancelling my account, but many others have patiently waited and waited for the service to improve. Unfortunately, the company ceased operations and disappeared: “The lucrative business of beauty boxes appears to have hit an ugly bump as Montreal-based Glymm abruptly closed its virtual shop last Friday, leaving members wondering what happened to their money.” (View Source)

Glymm stopped shipping boxes and continued charging customers’ credit cards without notice. Luckily, Nail Polish Canada would like to give back to the beauty community and have put together a FREE $25 value box for those who had a subscription.

This awesome Anti-Glymm Box includes
  • 1 x Choice of: China Glaze Shocking Pink, Nova (silver glitter), or Towel Boy Toy (blue)
  • 1 x China Glaze For Audrey (best selling China Glaze ever!)
  • 1 x Color Club In Theory 
  • 1 x White Nail File 
  • 1 x mini Seche Vite Top Coat
  • 1 x mini Tend Skin
Anybody who was a Glymm box member at any point during the last 4 months qualifies.
  1. Email with proof of membership (receipt, confirmation email, credit card statement etc.) to
  2. Within 24 hours Nail Polish Canada will email you a coupon code to get this $25 value box for free!

Vichy Eau Thermale / Spa Water Review

A must have for dry weather, Vichy Eau Thermale Thermal Spa Water spray is rich in 15 rare minerals, 100% pure, and paraben-free. The spray is packed with iron, potassium, calcium, manganese, silicon, copper... Vichy Thermal Spa Water soothes and protects sensitive skin against the irritations of everyday life. This product is great pick-me-up after a long day at work - I happen to use it regularly after purchasing it a few weeks ago. The verdict? I'm surprisingly impressed at how well it works.

Vichy Thermal Spa Water is a completely natural, unique ingredient recognized and used in pharmacology for its soothing, fortifying, and regenerative properties.

Vichy's Commitment:
- Hypoallergenic.
- Fragrance-free.
- No preservatives.

How to Use:
Use on perfectly cleansed skin before applying your usual skincare products.
1. Hold bottle 30 cm away from your face, then mist in a circular motion.
2. Leave on for a few seconds. Dry by gently blotting with a tissue.
Can also be used to refine makeup, and can be applied as many times as desired during the day. Review:

Accessories Haul

Take a look at some of the new additions to my collection. As most of you already know, I love cutsey, girly items. Chain headbands with metallic or flower-y accents are perfect to be worn now and into the spring/summer. And of course, I love owls and animal themes jewelry, hearts and strawberries are cute too! My current favourites: J.Crew & Rachel Roy.
