September Gylmm Box


It's that time again... if you aren't sure exactly who or what (it's a what, not a who) a Glymm Box* is read this post. For those who'd rather not read, Glymm Box is a monthly subscription service that sends out deluxe size samples. Think Birchbox, Luxe Box, or Glossy Box.


This month's box was heavy, like twice as heavy as last month's box, so I was very excited to see what sort of goodies they had included. When I opened it up I was greeted to a very full box and a bunch of items that I'm very pleased to get to try:

Oscar de la Renta's Esprit d'Oscar

I tried a little dab of this, and I have to say it's not for me. It's very floral, and... well, much more "mature" than anything I'd go for. The flower on the card is cute though.

John Masters Organics Blood Orange & Vanilla Body Wash and Body Milk

These smell quite nice, a bit like creamsicle actually, but not quite as sweet. From what I tried of the body milk, the scent is not that long lasting though. Maybe it will last longer when paired with the body wash.

Vasanti Blush in Rockies





I think I'm most excited about the Vasanti Blush in Rockies. When I first opened the little compact it looked quite red toned, but upon swatching it, it's a pinky coral with an almost rose gold sheen to it. It's buttery and smooth, with great pigmentation. I'm looking forward to using this. ANND... this is a full size product. I didn't realize until I read the Glymm card. It is a small full size product at 3.2 g (for comparison sake a MAC blush is 6g) and retails for $15.

Glymm Surprise- Cute Croc Accessory

This month the Glymm team included a little burgundy croc mirror! It's cute and super functional with one side having a regular mirror and the other with magnification.

Jelly Bellies!

And of course, no Glymm Box is complete without a treat. This month it was coconut and blueberry Jelly Belly jelly beans. So good!

Do you subscribe to Glymm Box? What do you think of subscription services?

  2. I was actually kinda bummed with my Glymm box, and I really don't know why. I think I was expecting more from it!

    I did not notice that the Vasanti blush was full size! Its so tiny, I never would have thought that. Thanks for pointing that out!
