April 2012 Glymm Overview and Review


I just received the April Glymm box (strangely getting the tracking number after it is delivered), but I will never complain about getting a lovely surprise in the mail!

I love the glossy pink box...  I haven't decided what I am going to do with them, but I will do something!

Pink and Glossy!!

Always love the ribbon touch

 So let me give you a brief overview of what is in the box:

  • Lucia Soap No. 6
  • Free your Mane Shampoo and Conditioner
  • Atelier Cologne
  • Mai Couture Social Gloss

Little treats tucked away under the tissue paper
Enclosed in the box was a $100 Gift Certificate from Nu.Me - Remember the supplier of the feather hair extensions from March?  I have no idea what products this website offers, perhaps I will check it out...  But most likely not.

 The Lucia brand is completely new to me.  But three things make me happy; 1) I am a sucker for soap and 2) the packaging is gorgeous; 3) the smell is divine!

Full size is $17.50 for 8 soaps.  Sample was 1 soap.
Wild Ginger and Fresh Fig Scented Soap

Triple milled with 100% Shea Butter
 Free your Mane is another completely new product brand to me.  Sulfate Free Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner.  Make with Baobab Oil, Argan Oil, Pomegranate Seed Oil and Sweet Almond Oil.  Geez, it should be moisturizing!!!

Full size is $16 for 300ml.  Sample is 7.4ml each.

I honestly had no idea when I looked at the front of the wax envelope what it would contain.  When I flipped it over, it was sealed with a sticker.  Inside was a super pretty post card and a very small sample of the perfume.  The company is Atelier Cologne.  Totally unknown to me.

Scent is Orange Sanguine and true to form it definitely has a citrus smell.  I actually love it and would definitely consider getting it. (Update - Wearing it today and it is gorgeous!!)

Full size is $60 for 30ml (or $60 for 200ml).  Sample size - no idea... little.

 The last item in the box was a lip gloss from Mai Couture.  This is the only brand that I have ever heard of (the bronze and blot paper from the February Glymm box).  The paper underwhelmed me, but when I swatched the gloss, I must say I was more impressed.  Does not appear sticky and I could totally layer it over a lipstick/lipstain/etc as it is very sheer.

Full size is $28 for 5ml. Sample size is full size.
Gloss in colour G'Vinity

Sheer Gloss

 Soooo.... My thoughts on this month's offering from Glymm.

Soap - Hooray
Shampoo/Conditioner - Meh
Fragrance - Hooray
Gloss - Hooray (and Full Size)
Coupon - Meh

3 Hoorays out of 5 means I am ok, not ecstatic, but not miffed either.  This is the third month in a row that I received a lip product.  I would love a blush or a bath bomb...  Just something else.

Would love to know what you think of your box!!

  1. Hi Lori, My box was almost the same. I got the Lucia soap in no. 1 instead of 6, and the Mai gloss in sake sunrise. Not the best box I've had. I like the gloss though.

I really appreciate you taking time to comment. I read them all.

Thanks ever so much!
