February 2012 Glymm Box

My box took forever to get to me - at a snail pace.
I thought it will never get here.
I had a stressful time with their customer service.
Unbelievable right?
Well, I was trying to get a refund from a 3 months gift subscription that they re-charged on my credit card.
It took about three weeks to get my refund - I was worry they wouldn't give my money back.
Anyways, I am glad everything was all settled.

This is what is inside my Glymm box :

Sula: Eye shadow
Full size 0.15 oz @ $8, sample size = Full size
It goes on very lightly.  The colour looks OK on me.

Burt's Bees: Tinted Lip Balm
Full size 4.25g @ $7.99, sample size = Full size
I love lip balms.  When I put this on I don't see any colour on my lips.  I think that is OK.

Glamglow: Mud Mask
Full size 50ml @ $78, sample size 7ml @ $10.92
I have never tried a mud mask before.  I am afraid that I might break out.

Mai Couture: Blotting/Bronzing paper
Full size 100 sheets @ $24, sample size 2 sheets $0.48
Wow, two sheets...kinda disappointing.  I found this product too expensive for blotting paper even if it has a duel function as a bronzing paper.  I dont know about you but when I use blotting paper I use the whole sheet.  I don't know why Glymm said that it is good for 4 uses...

Total value of the box is $27+

Also, Glymm mentioned that they are replacing the Jelly Belly with something more better.  I assumed it was going to be in this box but I didn't see anything.

The Bottom Line
My experience with this month's box - 2/5
Product received - 2/5
The surprise - 2/5
Favourite product received - Burt's Bees Tinted lip balm

The past two boxes I have found their quality of products are declining.  At first they were the best but now I'm worry they are not.

You can read my previous month's Glymm box here:
October, November, December, and January.

Did you get yours yet?
Are you happy with this month's box?


  1. Thanks for the great review! I am experiencing the same issues as you but I haven't even gotten my tracking number, let alone the box itself! I am having problems with their customer service also which definitely makes it very disappointing! If your face is sensitive, skip the mud mask. It really sucks all of the impurities to the surface.

    1. I would email them everyday to get that tracking number! I dont know what is wrong with their customer service...

  2. So they started earlier than My Glam, and pretty much the same thing, except it's only shipping to Canada...Still, they look quite fun! Tell me what you think of the mud mask once you tried it!!
