May Glymm Box!

Hey everyone! I received my Glymm box on Monday but I wasn't able to post a review until now. Before even opening the package, the box seemed very light to me. Once I opened the package I realized there was no standard pink box but the products were in a pink makeup bag. I think this is a great idea because I've been subscribed to Glymm since they launched and I have wayyyy too many Glymm boxes laying around. 

 



Click below to find out what I received this month!




The first item that caught my eye was the Caudalie Crushed Cabarnet Scrub. This scrub is free of parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragnances and dyes, phthalates, GMOs, and Triclosan. The product has a herbal scent to it and is not too overpowering. I also love the packaging of this product! This scrub retails for $29. The full size is 150g and the sample that I received contains 60g of product. 




Glymm also sent us a sample of the Calvin Klein Sock fragrance for her and him. I'm not a fan when beauty box subscriptions send us fragrance samples because I usually don't like the samples that are scent. The top notes for the CK Sock for Her are passionflower, pink peony, and poppy flower. The top notes for CK for Him are clementine, purple lavender, and cucumber. Both fragrances retail for $45 (50 mL). The sample that I received contained  1.2 mL. 


This box also included two other Caudalie samples. Glymm included a sample of Caudalie Vinosource SOS Thirst-Quenching Serum and the Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet. These items are suppose to be used together to further their benefits. I'm more interested in trying the serum than the moisturizer because I've been in the market for a new serum. The full size of the serum retails for $48 and the full size moisturizer retails for $38. 


Glymm also included a NUME HydroPunch Hydrating Conditioner. This conditioner cotains Argan oil, fatty acids and Vitamin E. The full size costs $25 and contains 250mL of product. The sample that I received is 20mL. 


This month's Glymm box also contained a sample of the COOLA Mineral Matte Cucumber Face Sunscreen. The product is certified organic and is paraben free. The product also claims to have a matte finish. I'm looking forward to trying this sunscreen because there aren't many organic sunscreens in the market. The full size retails for $36 and is 50mL. 


Finally, Glymm also included a Mereadessoo Lip Treat in the shade Sheer Pink. This tinted lip balm is a light pink colour and is very sheer when applied to the lips. These lip balms came in a package of two and retail for $28.



Overall I'm very happy with this month's Glymm box. These past few month's Glymm continued to disappoint me but this month they included a variety of products and I'm looking forward to trying all the products.

Have a great day!
