March 2012 Glymm Box Review

I know it’s May – but better late than never I suppose. I still haven’t even gotten around to trying everything yet but if I keep waiting on that I may never get this posted.

The March box was pretty good. Lots of different things to try and I enjoyed almost all of them.

March 2012 Glymm Box

M. Asam’s Magic Fini 5ml (full size 30ml $38)
Nu.Me’s Feather Hair Extensions full size (3 for $25)
Ocean’s Nail Polish – Marooned full size 15 ml $12
Anastasia Beverly Hills Hydrafull Gloss – Sorbet 1ml (full size 2.2ml $27)
Lise Watier Flash Lift Radiance (bonus) 1ml vial (full size 7 x 1ml vials $27)

The March Glymm Box was worth close to $60 – defiantly worth the $10 (plus tax) I spent on it.

The box came right at the time we decided to move the wedding ahead a year – it kind of got forgotten about for a while. Same with the Luxe Box – haven’t even opened that one up again since it came – better get on it so I can post about it.

When I finally did get around it I was super excited to try M. Asam’s Magic Fini – I read a lot of reviews that it was dark but blended in fine and they were correct. I LOVE THIS PRODUCT! It goes on so nice and gives my face a bit of a glow and a nice smooth finish. I actually put it on AFTER my regular make up routine to even things out, I found I liked it better this way. A little goes a long way. I actually ordered the full size of this product right after trying it for the first time – that is how much I liked it! I had $30 in Glymm Points kicking around so I thought why not – I actually ended up ordering the combo pack with the Perfect Teint – the combo had free shipping. They just came yesterday so I haven’t had a chance to try them out. If you signed up for a Glymm Box using my referral link you will earn 100 points of your own – worth $10 in their store.

I did try the Anastasia Beverly Hills Hydrafull Gloss – it’s nice, I like the colour. But I found it a bit sticky. It stayed pretty good, looked nice and smelled good but I don’t think I could justify almost $30 on such a small tube of lip gloss. I love lip products but not that much. I have only used it once so I dunno if it does everything it claims to.

My bottle of Ocean’s Nail Polish is sitting on my bathroom counter just waiting for me to try it. I keep meaning to paint my toes – but that takes time I just haven’t had. The colour is nice but really dark – too dark for spring. But I will give it a try anyway – soonish.

I hate the colour of the Nu.Me’s Feather Hair Extensions – I like the idea of them (have some different ones in my hair now) and was really happy to see them in my box but the colour is horrible. Ick. Not much else to say about that.

I got the Lise Watier Flash Lift Radiance in my first Glymm Box – don’t mind seeing it again though since it was a bonus. Haven’t tried it yet – haven’t tried the first one yet either. They might come in handy for some upcoming photo shoots though.

All in all a pretty good box. Hopefully I will get a chance to post April’s box soon. As well as my Luxe Boxes!

Free Head and Shoulders Shampoo and Conditioner

The $1.00 Shoppers Drug Mart clearance got me again! I haven’t really gone in there at all in the last month but after the other day I thought I better check again. Happy I did and happy I finally stuffed my stack of inserts (and a pair of scissors) in the car – just in case! The clearance shelf was full of $1.00 items, it was hard to resist. But with the Wedding coming up (very fast) combined with the fact we really don’t need much I decided to stick to only getting stuff if it was free.
