Last week, I received my April 2012 https://www.glymm.com/share/ragingtuna (referral link). It was my first-ever subscription box of any kind, so I was really excited about it! Here`s what was in the box this month:
- Lucia Soap No. 1 & No. 6: These refined jewels are packed with pure botanical extracts and enriched with 100% certified organic Shea Butter. Not only will your skin feel silky-soft, it ill also be thoroughly cleansed and smelling so seductive. Go ahead, drape yourself in luxury, you know you want to. Signature scents include: Goat Milk & Linseed and Wild Ginger & Fresh Fig.
- Atelier Cologne Orange Sanguine Fragrance: Atelier Cologne is a niche perfume house based in Paris and New York. Each scent is intended to embody a `singular moment` of memory and experience. We present to you Orange Sanguine. `It was the kind of moment you would want to revisit. Everyone was here, gathered on the terrace for breakfast, and the scent of oranges was diffusing in the yellow heat. A symphony of their laughter and waves hitting the cliffs played in the air.`
- Free Your Mane Sulfate Free Hydrating Shampoo & Conditioner: `I`m sorry, I can`t make it, gotta wash my hair.` You will totally use this line after trying this shampoo & conditioner. It gently cleanses hair and scalp with natural oils help rebuild your hair`s delicate moisture balance. With an exclusive blend of Brilliant Baobab Oil from Africa, ultra-moisturizing Argan Oil from Morocco, anti-oxidant rich Pomegranate Seed Oil and Sweet Almond Oil, it will truly Free Your Mane.
- Mai Couture Social Gloss: Treat your lips with luxury you simply can`t live without. Not only will this gloss fill in unwanted lines and restore moisture but it will create full kissable lips. Your lips will be healthy and plump. The sheer formula will create a sumptuous and luminous sheen. The secret: A complex mix of plant extracts naturally enhances lip volume effortlessly without the allergen. Your lips will be the life of the party.
As you can probably tell, some of the descriptions are quite long-winded, lol. I`ve only tried a couple of the samples so far - the lip gloss and the perfume. The lip gloss is in a shade that I would never purchase for myself - a sheer, milky whitish colour. It`s called G`Vinity. My lips aren`t very pigmented as it is, so I try to ADD colour to them when I can. The formula is nice, though, although I wouldn`t say it has a plumping effect. The perfume is AWESOME. It smells like sunshine! It`s very tart, zingy, and just a little bit sweet. I love it! =) Finally, I checked out NuMe`s website to see what they had on offer...most of the items that apply to the gift card are $200+. So you are probably looking at dropping about $100 even if you use the gift card. Also...it`s not really a gift card! It`s just a coupon code - NUME100. If it was really a gift card, there would be a randomized code, I`m sure. So if anyone wants to use this code...feel free! I have another Glymm Box coming in May, and I am excited to see what`s in store. If you want to check out Glymm for yourself, https://www.glymm.com/share/ragingtuna
