China Glaze Nail Lacquer in Blue Sparrow (Neon) Full size. (Retails for $10-$12)NUME Style Hydro Punch Hydrating Shampoo 20ml sample size (full size 250ml retails for $24.99)I excited at first about this as it contains Argan Oil and is for damaged, chemical treated hair but turns out it does include Sulphates.

What’s Inside My May 2012 Glymm Box?

Glymm has come out with new eco friendly packaging. I love the sturdy, glossy, pretty pink boxes that the monthly box has always come in as it is very handy for storing things in but I have now accumulated many of them so I am excited by the switch to the cute pink zippered pouch. I wasn't as excited however by what was inside the pouch. Not to say it was a bad "box". It had a lot of samples in it but the full size item that was included was another Cargo eyeliner. I already received a Cargo eyeliner pencil in my January Glymm box

What’s Inside My March 2012 Glymm Box?

I just received my March 2012 Glymm Box and it is full of all kinds of fun goodies! The first product is a sample of M. Asam Magic Fini. I have never heard of this brand or this product but I'm very excited to try it because it sounds interesting. It is supposed to blend into your skin and conceal uneven skin tone for a light, matte, natural looking finish. It claims to smooth away the appearance of wrinkles, enlarged pores and imperfections and reveal a sun kissed, healthy looking skin tone. It says "it's magical". Those are some

I'm feeling somewhat lazy at the moment so I'm going to let the pictures speak for themselves with this post. I'm pretty pleased with the February 2012 Glymm Box.

What’s Inside My February 2012 Topbox?

February 2012 TopboxThis is actually my third Topbox. I never got around to posting about the first two. I have been fairly satisfied with my monthly samples. February 2012 TopboxThis February box brings me two products I've actually been very anxious to try. The Yves Saint Laurent Effet Faux Cils mascara and Touche Éclat. The only downside is the teeny size of them. It is a very small sample tube of mascara and the Touche Éclat is on of those peel off samples you'd expect to find in a magazine. Still a great way to try these very

What’s Inside my September 2011 Glymm Box?

After my disappointment in the Luxe Boxes by Loose Button I'm a little surprised that I went ahead and subscribed to Glymm. I guess I really am in love with the whole idea of these surprise boxes in the mail every month and hoped that Glymm would do a better job of meeting my expectations. Well I'm pleased to say it did! For more information on the Glymm Box program please check out my previous post here. The Glymm box is a glossy pink delight.Nestled inside were some lovely products as well as a nice surprise.
