For those that don't know, Glymm has overhauled their look and are calling it Glymm Version 2.0. They also raised their prices from $10/month to $12/month. For those that are currently active subscribers, you don't have to do a thing and they will automatically upgrade you. And you don't have to worry about paying the new and improved priced either. Glymm has said that as long as you keep your subscription active, you will be charged $10/month.
So...what's so different? Less packaging (though, I have to admit, those box did come in handy)! And NEW PACKAGING! I love it, love it, love it! Now, for those people who say that it's a rip off of "MyGlamBag" - who cares??? I'm happy!!!! :P The bag itself seems to be of good quality (unlike the myglambag, from what I've read anyways, which seem to be a little cheap). I hope that the makeup bags are going to be a staple in the "boxes" and I hope that they change up the colours every month. Perhaps this was part of their grand jelly belly replacement idea?
I was a little surprised to find my "box" a little on the light side, and I instantly though, oh no...this is going to suck....again.
CK SHOCK FOR HER AND CK SHOCK FOR HIM
HRUMPH!!!!!!! yay...more perfume samples. I have at least three or four of this perfume samples. PUUUHHLLLLEEESSSSEEEEEE.....give me a break from receiving these!
COOLA - MINERAL MATTE CUCUMBER FACE SUNSCREEN
Protect your face from UV rage with this hydrating, refreshing sunblock. Coola donates a portion of sales to cancer research. I've never heard of this brand before, so I'm kind of intrigued.
full - $36 (50ml)
sample - $3.60 (5ml)
NU-ME HYDROPUNCH HYDRATING CONDITIONER
Turn dull and damaged hair into vibrant, healthy strands that you can't help but to twirl all day long. Hee hee. I do twirl my hair.... I've never tried a Nu-Me hair product before, so this will be interesting. Since my hair is so long, I've been finding it really hard to keep the ends looking nice and less dried out, so this product will definitely be put up to the ultimate test!
Exclusive product launch
full - $24.00 (250ml)
sample - $1.92 (20ml)
CARGO EYE SHADOW DUO in VIENNA
This is probably the third Cargo eye shadow that I've received from my beauty boxes and I have yet to try a single one. I do like this colour combination, so I might actually bust this out once in a while.
full - $25
sample - $25
CAUDALIE - VINEPERT ANTI-AGEING SERUM EYES AND LIPS
Smooth and contour your lips and eyes with this light serum. I really liked the other Caudalie eye product that I got a while back (which costs, like, a million dollars), so I'm really hoping that I'll like this one too because at least, this one is a little more affordable.
full - $33 (15ml)
sample - $15.40 (7ml)
CAULDALIE SOS THIRST-QUENCHING SERUM AND MOISTURIZING SORBET
The SSO Thirst Quenching serum and the moisturizing sorbet are supposed to be used together, or so it indicates on the card. Both are exclusive product launches. The serum is supposed to give your skin a surge of hydration and restore moisture balance for softer and more supple skin. The moisturizing sorbet will leave your face feeling refreshed, hydrated and comfortably soft. Both are little tiny samples, but they are in really cute pink packaging, so it's okay.
full - $48.00 (30ml) Serum
full - $38.00 (40ml) Sorbet
sample - $1.60 (1ml) Serum
sample - $0.95 (1ml) Sorbet
Overall, I really liked this month's Glymm Bag. This will be the first month where I'm keeping all of the samples for myself and not giving any of them away. One other positive change that Glymm has made is to their card (though, they could save on printing and paper by shrinking the font a little and making the card a little smaller...but not a biggie) is that they tell you approximately how many uses their samples will provide you. So, hopefully, I'll never see a "Sample usage: 1" on here. :P I personally think that Glymm has made quite a few positive changes, but just like when I started my Glymm subscription, I was impressed, but slowly things went downhill, but seeing these changes has changed my mind about cancelling next month. Hopefully, things will stay good!
Total Value of this month's Glymm Bag: $48.47
