So, Glymm came a little lat this month. Doesn't really bug me much. I prefer they still come in their correct month..which it did. I'm actually still waiting for my 2 US subs. SO slow this month! Speaking of waiting...I'm really annoyed that Luxe Box won't be shipping until end of December or beginning of January! How is that a seasonal/quarterly box if they're shipping it 5 months after the first one? Don't they have MONTHS to plan these boxes ahead of time? If mine is as lame as the last one, they're the first sub to go! Oh wait..I was supposed to cut back as of this month..
Anyways.. October Glymm bag! It was pink for breast cancer awareness month It actually had a pink ribbon in it as well, however I picked it up at the PO on my lunch and opened it at work so the ribbon wound up on my work sweater. Pretty colour, but I'm getting tired of these plastic bags...
I'll also add that some girls received product cards, I did not and that annoys me to no end because I didn't get ANY product information not even via email.
The first item was a bonus item. Apparently, they are going to do a special "mama" box which is a great idea. Anyways, I know some girls were upset to receive baby oil..but come on! It's not just for babies! You can use it as a moisturizer or take make up off..
Full size is valued at $6.42 for 591mL. Sample size is 88mL valued at $0.96.
The next item is Lash Card mascara shield. I mean, interesting concept. I totally get mascara on my lids because my lashes touch after I curl...but seriously? For the price of this item..it's a bit silly. Anyways, I now have a template to make my own. I'm sly like a fox.
Full size is valued at 10 cards for $6.99. Sample size is 2 cards valued at $1.40.
This is what it looks like. It trips me up that the printing is backwards. Apparently, it's important that you be able to read it in the mirror? lol So silly, guys!
The next item is a mascara from Femme Couture. The packaging looks a wee bit beat up like it was picked up at a warehouse sale. That said, I always like trying new mascaras. I mean what girl isn't on the quest for the best mascara EVER?! I received the colour: Midnight Black.
Full size item valued at $14 for 11.3g.
The next item was great because the previous samples from CyberDerm got great reviews. Mine came a bit crushed and I actually tried straightening it out a bit. I think I read somewhere these are meant to be used together, but again..no idea because I have NO INFO! GRR!
Full sizes are valued at $38 and $60 respectively for 50mL. I'm estimating these to be at 8mL each so I valued them at $6.08 and $9.60 respectively.
What angered me more not know how these are to be used..was opening it and the product gushing everywhere! I tried to close it as quickly as possible..but come on, this will happen again. I'm so frustrated as this has happened to me with Glymm in the past and ONLY Glymm.
The last item in the bag was Miss Jessie's Baby Buttercreme. I had to google and I *still* don't get it. I thought it was a moisturizer, but the packaging say it's a miracle moisturizer for curls, kinks and waves. Huh? Help me out here...please. This seems like a heavy product for someone with dry, frizzy, FINE hair. But, on the plus size it smells delicious. It comes in several sizes including this one, so that's how I based it as a full size.
Full size valued at $9 for 60mL.
This is what the cream looks like... very thick. It has a beautiful Shea smell to it.
Here are the contents. I was ready to quit, but they seem to be moving in the right direction. I'm not sure I'm comfortable to grab them for a whole year even though it would have been nice to get the extra polish in the bag.
I also had to get some sizing/pricing from other blogs because I just know nothing about this months products. :(
Total value is $41.04 (estimated). I pay $11.20 with shipping each month.
That's it! Are you all ready for Halloween? Living in Winnipeg I dread taking the kids...BRRRR. At least there's candy tax we can impose on the kids, right?! ;)
