I got my Glymm bag today, which is really on time and everything, and that's something to appreciate about Glymm. What struck me when I grabbed the box was how light it was... Hmm... Let's see what was in the textured black Glymm bag:
It smells nice and seems fine from the tiny bit I put on my hand but I'll try it fully tonight. When someone on Facebook figured out that this was the product they were making us guess, I looked into it and found out that people in the USA got it in their Birchbox and saw that it was 3ml so I was expecting this tiny sample, though I was hoping for much more.
Sample: 3ml worth 2.20$
Sample: 20ml worth 2.00$
I didn't even know they could put a gloss in a sample this size... how completely weird! The size of the sample is a disappointment but the product itself is interesting. They say it stimulates collagen and is slightly plumping. Their philosophy for this product is that the gloss should be luxurious AND healthy and I like that.
I tried it and it is completely non-sticky and actually even tastes good! It's not very pigmented at all but that's not a down side for me. It would be easy to put on quick-quick with no mirror and still looks lightly glossy and coloured. It's something between gloss and balm but for me it's closer to a balm so I find it overpriced even if I like it.
Sample: 0.008 oz (0.24ml) worth 2.08$
Mai Couture blush sheets, 2 of them. I don't really know how to use this so I'll see what this gives. It's interesting but again, very small sample. 2 sheets is good for 2 applications of blush I'm guessing? Regular blush can last a person like a year so a 2 day supply is a bit pittiful even for a sample.
Sample: 2 sheets worth 0.70$
I put my finger in this and it's definitely clay! Very thick and the first ingredient is Organic Dead Sea Mud. Does anyone know what might make Dead Sea Mud not organic? Anyway.
Sample: approx. 6ml worth approx. 1.77$
This is just based on my best guess for the amount in there.
NO PICTURE OF THE SAMPLE-VIAL OFATELIER COLOGNE PERFUME
Last product is the sample of perfume. I'm just not happy at all to get samples of perfume like this. These are the same types as we get for free at a department store and considering I don't wear perfume, it's completely worthless for me to try different brands that they might not sell here. I haven't tried any of the ones they DO sell here! That said, I do like the postcard they send and what's written behind it.
The scent is called Vanille Insensee and they set the scene:
"He wove through the crowd when suddenly his heart quickened. That scent. It was hers. He had worn it first until she stole it for herself. Now, there she was before him and the magc of years past came flooding back in a moment."
The quote in French really gives a better picture than the English... In the French one, his heart got overwhelmed, the scent was not her's, it was HER. It makes no mention that he wore that perfume before her, only that she'd stolen it from him which does give this impression but adds a bit of mystery somehow. He didn't find her before him, they found *each other* one in front of the other...
Sample: approx. 1ml worth approx. 1.25$
(price for perfume varies so much per ml based on the size of the bottle)
TOTAL BAG WORTH: 10$
See why I named this What the heck, Glymm?? This is worth less than what we paid for it! Or worth exactly what we paid for it if we put another 2 bucks in for the bag.
Let's just say I'm cancelling... I've already paid for September which I am fine with because I do want to see what's in the next month's bag since I really loved last month's bag a lot and I will have enough time to sign back up if September awesome. It's like a no-lose cancellation for me... But it's one that can help send out a message to Glymm if others are cancelling too, which I'm sure they will be.
Here's a look at the lot of tiny samples that I got in this month's Glymm bag:
