So I finally received my first subscription box yesteday, the Glymm Box.
If you have been inundated with Glymm box reveals, I give you permission to jump now LOLI had seen the Glymm box offered last summer but I thought I would wait to see what or how Glymm would perform before buying a box.
For those of you that don’t know what Glymm is; it is a for-Canadians beauty subscription box. It’s similar to the US Birchbox.
Okay here is the big reveal:

The only thing I have used so far is the Cargo eyeliner. It goes on very black and smooth, but it moves after a few hours. After opening the box, I immediately whipped out my mirror and slap some of this on HAHA. It was very dark and as I said before very smooth, no tugging at all for a pencil liner. But when I got home six hours later, I had a bit of transfer under my eyes. So I would recommend setting this liner with a powder eyeshadow.

plus Bad to the Bronze Colour Tattoo (on lids)
First impressions: The packaging is beautiful. I will also certainly use the Vasanti face rejuvenator, which is a enzyme face exfoliater and the Anastasia eyebrow gel. Right now I am using clear mascara on my brows. The mascara works fine but I do notice my eyebrows get dry. So high hopes for Anastasia!
I gave one of the Burt’s Bees lotions to a co-worker J so I only have one to try. I like Burt Bee’s chap sticks and hand lotion so I am looking forward to see how moisturizing this milk and honey lotion is.
The Kaia bamboo cleansing clothes seems like a cool idea but why so expensive for a full pack? $17.99 for 30 clothes. I guess I should try it before bitching about it LOL.Glymm, like other sub services, offers loyalty points. 10 points = $1.00. You can use these points in their store. As well, existing subs get reward points when other sign up for a subscription using their referral link. My referral link HERE :)
The Glymm Box will be available to the US shortly. Just create an account with Glymm and be the first to get notified when the US subscriptiona will begin.
Am I going to keep subscribing? Yep! I like being suprised although next time I hope I get mine earlier. It seemed like half the country got their box 4 days before me. Or maybe I will avoid the reviews..but I am such a nosy Nettie!
I also subscribed to Loose Button’s Luxe Box ($12/month) which I should start getting in February. In addition I signed up for the TopBox.ca ($10/month) but that won’t come until May. Crap. So it better be good!!! I will probably forget about it by then HAHA
On another note, UK’s GlossyBox is now available to Canada for $15/month. Hmmm something to ponder. Nah I better try these ones first!
K now I am done HAHA
