April 2012 Glymm Box

This month's Glymm box came without my tracking number.
This is the second time that happened.
The first time was with Luxe box.

This box included:

Lucia - Soap No. 1
Full size: 8 soaps @ $17.50, sample size: 1 soap @ $2.19
It smells nice.  I have never tried Shea Butter soaps before.  I usually use Dove soap so I cant wait to try it.

Atelier Cologne - Orange Sanguine Fragrance
Full size: 30ml @ $60 or 200 ml @ $165, sample size: unknown
It is a little strong at first but it smells like fresh oranges which I like.  I wish it was a spray bottle sample.

Free Your Mane - Sulfate Free Hyfrating Shampoo & Conditioner
Full size: 300ml @ $16, sample size 2 x 7.4 ml @ $0.79
I dislike these one time use sample.  They could have giving another one or two since both of them combine are worth less than a dollar.  I wonder if it will be enough for long thick hair.

Mai Couture - social gloss (G'vinity)
Full size = sample size 5ml @ $28
I cant believe this tiny lip gloss is worth $28.  It is really nice.  I like the smell.  I found it really hydrates my lips.

Bonus (not)
$100 gift card to NuMe gift card only could be used for styling tools or hair extensions.
Not worth it since everything is over $100
I have seen this in MyGlam bag and I found they also didn't like it.

Total worth of this month's box is $30+

My experience with this month's box - 2/5
Product received - 2.5/5
The surprise - 2/5
Favourite product received - Mai Couture
Brownie Points - came somewhat on time
Overall reaction - Boo.  I like the lip gloss & the soap but the rest could be better.  At least I received my money's worth.

Do you like this month's box?


  1. I got the same box as you .. I was very disapointed as well .. i like the gloss but that is about it :0

  2. I received my first Glymm box in April and was disappointed. I like the lip gloss. I ordered Glossybox and beautybox. So will cancel Glymm box I think. Is Glymm really worth it though?

    1. Each box is a hit or a miss. You never know what might be in the next box. They were really good until two months ago... I still thinks it is OK. Even if I just like the lip gloss, it covers the cost of $10.
