Check out this super shiny pink box.
THIS little baby, was what made my day yesterday.
I’ve been wanting to share the amazingness that is Glymm, with you for a while now but I really wanted to SHOW you, not just tell you.
Glymm is a Canadian Beauty Website that carries a great selection of high end beauty products that you can purchase online. One of the best things about Glymm is that Canadian ladies can finally purchase high end beauty brands online without dealing with the high shipping costs, brokerage, duties and taxes involved with ordering from the US.
BUT…that is not even the best part about this whole thing. They have this little magical thing called a Glymm Box, which is a selection of 4-5 deluxe beauty samples that are mailed to your door every month! For $10 freaking dollars. I can’t think of anything better to buy for $10 a month.
Now to get to the good stuff.
This is the December box. It was delivered yesterday after only being shipped on the 16th! Super fast shipping.
When you open up the box there is a pretty ribbon wrapping up the whole package.
Then there was this.
A card with a code for $10 off of any purchase on Glymm.com …. so basically the box has already paid for itself before you have even gotten to the product.
Then you get this card with all of the information for each sample in the box. The card shows you the retail price for each product so you know what you’re looking at if you really like it.
And the samples!
This box was awesome! They always try to give you a good mix of makeup, skincare and perfume samples, and they definitely did a good job this time.
First we have Lise Watier Flash Lift Radiance Vial. I haven’t tried this product yet but it claims to smooth your skin and reduce wrinkles.
Next there was Caudalie Premier Cru “The Eye Cream.” This eye cream is supposed to reduce the look of dark under eye circles. I used some this morning before I applied my makeup and it did seem to lighten up the under eye area. I am lucky enough to not usually have a problem with under eye circles so I don’t usually use products like this but I always like to use eye cream because I am terrified of premature wrinkles.
Ahava Deadsea Water Hand Cream. This cream is awesome, it makes your hands feel very moisturized without being greasy. Mr. Delish said this smelled like “old lady” so apparently he isn’t a big fan of the scent but I really like it. Also it is the perfect size to keep in your purse and it would last for quite a few uses.
Yves Saint Laurent Parisienne perfume. This is a BIG sample, 7.5 ml to be exact and for me this will last me a long time since I mix up my scents quite often. I love this perfume, I had never tried this scent before but when I opened it I knew that I had smelled it somewhere. Turns out it smells almost exactly like Alfred Sung Forever which was one of the perfumes my Mom used to wear when I was a kid. Very sweet and spicy smelling!
Sula lip gloss. To me this seems like a full sized gloss. Score! This gloss is great because it can be really sheer if you just apply a thin layer, or if you add a bit more it amps up the color to a bright bubblegum pink. It kind of smells like bubblegum too!
And lastly, the one thing you can be sure to get in your Glymm box…
Jelly Belly’s! Yum. To the surprise of….well no one, these are almost gone already.
So basically to sum it up, you get an amazing box of samples delivered to you every month for $10! If you are a beauty product hoarder like me, you will totally love this. If you’re looking for a gift for that special lady in your life, this would be perfect! It’s the gift that keeps on giving, all year long.

Oh and just to be clear, I am not affiliated with Glymm in any way, this is just an awesome idea and I wanted to share it with you all!
Merry Christmas Everyone!!
