After a particularly long day at work last month, I came home to find a hot pink box at my front door. I knew that this bright and happy box meant one thing: my February Glymm box had arrived. January 2012 not only brought in a new year for me, it also brought my first Glymm experience. By now, I knew what to expect: 3-5 luxury cosmetic, fragrance, skincare, tools, spa and body, nails, and lifestyle samples that are customized according to the beauty profile you build.
I was delighted to find two full size products for February 2012, one of which has now become a permanent purse staple for me. My pink special delivery included:
1. Full Size Sula Paint and Peel Nail Polish (Full Size $9) – This vibrant nail polish is formulated for easy application and removal. Unlike regular polish, it can be removed without the use of nail polish remover, and won’t temporarily stain your cuticles or fingers with suborn pigment.
2. Full Size Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm (Full Size $7.99) – After just one use, this tinted balm became one of my new favourite products. Available in six different shades, this award winning lip balm does double duty. It moisturizes with an arsenault of natural ingrediets, while providing the perfect pop of colour.
3. Trial Size GlamGlow Tingling and Exfoliating Mud Mask (Full Size $78 for 50 ml) – This tightening, moisturizing, and illuminating mud mask contains volcanic rock, French sea clay, and green tea leaf. One of the major benefits of subscribing to Glymm is that you guys to “try before you buy.” High priced beauty products can be hard to commit to, so receiving a sample is the perfect way to minimize buyer’s remorse.
4. Mai Couture 2-1 Oil Blotting/Bronzing Papier (100 Sheets for $24) – If you’re running short on time, or just running from one appointment to another, Mai Couture 2-1 bronzing paper can keep you looking refreshed and relaxed. These multitasking blotting papers control facial oil, while providing a light, shimmery glow, and are perfect for a midday touch-up.
But Glymm doesn’t stop there. After trying your samples, you can purchase the full size equivalent from their website and rack up “Glymm Points,” which you can redeem at 100 reward points to purchase a full sized product.
