Glymm Box: May 2012

4 years ago

I just received my May Glymm Box in the mail today! This month, Glymm claims to have gone "green" with a "new eco-friendly Glymm Bag". Well, I don`t see what`s so "green" about this month`s bag aside from some recycling facts on the back of the card I got. Hmm.

Anyways, here`s what was in this month`s Glymm Box (Bag?):
<ul><li><strong>CK Shock for Her</strong>: "`edgy. sexy. impulsive.` Shock yourself and everyone around you with this fierce bouquet of passionflower."</li>
<li><strong>CK Shock for Him</strong>: "`turn down the lights. amplify the sound. act on impulse.` Get addicted to this juicy scent. It`s fresh and leaves a lasting impression."</li>
<li><strong>Coola Mineral Matte Cucumber Face Sunscreen</strong>: "Protect your face from UV rays with this hydrating, refreshing sunblock. Coola donates a portion of sales to cancer research."</li>
<li><strong>NUME HydroPunch Hydrating Conditioner</strong>: "Turn dull and damaged hair into vibrant, healthy strands that you can`t help but twirl all day long."</li>
<li><strong>Cargo High Pigment Eye Pencil</strong>: "Rich, deep color combined with a smudge resistant formula is all you need in an eye pencil. See results with one smooth application."</li>
<li><strong>Claudalie Gentle Buffing Cream</strong>: "This luxurious face exfoliator will eliminate your imperfections and make you feel brand new."</li>
<li><strong>Claudalie Vinosource SOS Thirst-Quenching Serum</strong>: "Give your skin a surge of hydration and restore moisture balance for softer, more supple skin.</li>
<li><strong>Claudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet</strong>: "Save your skin with this moisturizer. Your face will feel refreshed, hydrated and comfortable soft."</li></ul>

I`m not impressed with this assortment, but I`m not entirely disappointed, either. I would prefer it if I could get samples/products that I wouldn`t be able to pick up for free at a department store. :/ I`m glad I got a full-size eye pencil (retail value $16) but I can`t find the name of the shade anywhere (it`s dark blue with gold sparkles). I can`t find this particular eye pencil on the Cargo website, either, so...I`m kind of suspicious, lol.

I am also of the opinion that skin and hair care products in beauty boxes are a bit of a cop-out...especially if these samples comprise most of the box`s assortment! I would like to see some nail polish, mascara, lip balm, etc. in any "beauty box" I subscribe to. I`m afraid Glymm just isn`t cutting it for me!

Oh, and most of the product descriptions are kind of ridiculous...the CK Shock descriptions made me snicker! And I didn`t get the blurb for the Cargo eye pencil - "see results with one smooth application"? Well, I would hope so, it`s an eye pencil, you`re supposed to be able to SEE it on your skin, lol!

If anyone has any recommendations for better subscription boxes, I would love to hear them! =)
