February 2012 Glymm Box Review

This month’s Glymm box came today – pretty late but at least it make it before the end of the month.

Obviously, I haven’t have a chance to try everything yet, but the items look alright. After reading some other reviews and Facebook comments it looks like a lot of people were unhappy with this month’s box – I can see why, but it really wasn’t bad to me and did include two full size products – even if they were cheaper products. Full size products are always nice.

February 2012 Glymm Box Review

Sula Natural Shadow – He Loves Me Cream Eye Shadow full size 0.15oz $8.00
Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm – Tiger Lily full size 4.25g $7.99
GlamGlow Tingling and Exfoliating Mud Mask 7ml (full size 50ml $78.00)
Mai Couture 2-1 Oil Blotting Bronzing Papier 2 sheets (full size 100 sheets $24.00)

This month’s box is worth around $25 – slightly less than this month’s Luxe Box, even though the Glymm Box included two full size products. There is a promo code to get the GlamGlow Tingling and Exfoliating Mud Mask for $50 (instead of $78) – I personally don’t see myself buying it based on the price alone. The sample size is pretty small, I can’t see getting more than two tries out of it. I have read it is really nice but, it would really have to WOW me after 2 tries before I would shell out $50+ on a mud mask. I am really looking forward to giving it a try though.

I did open up and try the Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm right away. The colour on tissue is orangey and not very attractive but it looked alright on and felt nice. I have a seriously addiction to lip products, especially balms – so I don’t mind trying something new. Even though lip products are the last thing I really need, I do love getting them and buying more.

I am not totally sure about the Sula Natural Shadow – He Loves Me Cream Eye Shadow – the colour looks nice in the container. I love shimmery eye shadows but I am not sure about a pink shimmery cream shadow on someone in their late twenties. Tempted to save this one for my much younger sister. Not sure yet though – I am interested to try it but I have never had luck with cream shadows in the past – they make my eye lids feel gross and heavy. Except the Benefit Farenheit Fab that was in my January Luxe Box, that was wonderful. So not totally sure if I am going to try this one or not.

Not sure how I feel about the Mai Couture 2-1 Oil Blotting Bronzing Papier – the idea looks alright but I am not a huge bronzer user – I do like it occasionally though. The oil blotting feature sounds nice though. I like the idea that I don’t need a brush to apply it – maybe I won’t get it everywhere. I think what gets me – and everyone else, is that they only included two sheets – worth less than $0.50 – just doesn’t seem very fancy or deluxe to me. I am sure I will try these eventually but I am not overly excited to try them.

Anyway overall I am happy with the box. Little disappointed about how late it came. I did prefer this month’s Luxe Box – it felt most deluxe and glamorous.
