July Glymm Box

2 Aug

I am super tired. Yawwwnnn.

I went with some friends to see the Celebration of Light in Vancouver last night and stayed up way past my bedtime. The Celebration of Light is an annual festival where there are fireworks shows from different countries around the world, that happen every Wednesday and Saturday night for a few weeks. The one we went to last night was Brazil and it was amazing and so worth my sleepy state today.

I heard that on Saturday there were close to 350,000 people that lined the beaches to watch the show. I think there were probably a lot less than that this time,  being it was a Wednesday but, there were ALOT of people down there nonetheless. We had a cramped walk back to the skytrain and then a cramped, sticky and sweaty, standing skytrain ride all the way home. We got home somewhere around 1am and I was done for. My usual bedtime is around 10-10:30 so I passed out right away when we got into bed.

I awoke sometime around 3am to Geoffrey sticking his paw in my ear and then happily purring and kneading on my face, when he successfully woke me up. I batted him away for a while but he was being relentless so finally I had to kick him out of our room. He then spent the next 10 minutes running around the hallway outside our room and trying to stick his paws under the door. So I had to lock him in the bathroom with his litter and food.

Ugh. It was a sleepless night.

Also I don’t even want to THINK about what I would be like with a child. Considering I’m pretty sure it’s frowned upon to lock your baby in the bathroom when they are interrupting your sleep.

Yeah, definitely frowned upon.

Anyways, GLYMM.

Who’s excited? I AM. I looovveee getting my Glymm box in the mail every month. AND I am happy to announce that I think that this months box was one of the best so far!

Let’s go!

We got a little orange bag this time so that makes my collection so far, pink, blue and orange. WEE.

The whole lot!

FUN.

Okay first up we have a coupon for 25% off any nail polish! Wee. I’m a nail polish hoarder, my favorite brand at the moment is China Glaze but unfortunately Glymm doesn’t carry that brand. They do carry RGB, which I haven’t tried as well as Butter London, which is great but I am not sure it is worth the more expensive price.

Next up we have Dirt Purify & Glow Salt Scrub in Cucumber Fig (15ml) – Full Size $45.00 for 12 oz/350 ml

People were getting all up in arms about how small this was and saying it was half full. Okay, yes it may have been about 3/4 full, but it’s a sample, AND all the other items in the box were good sized samples. I wasn’t disappointed. It smelled yummy and I like to keep these kinds of things in a basket in the spare bathroom for people to try if they stay over. Call me Martha.

After that we have Mane Teeze Social Butterfly Hair Perfume – Full Size $34.00 for 50 ml

This is yummy! It smells really vanilla-y and sweet. I love the idea of a hair perfume and this is a pretty big sample, so it would be perfect to carry in your purse to freshen up your hair after a long day.

Next we got Joico K-Pak Revitaluxe Hair Mask (50ml) – Full size: 150 mL for $25.00

Yay, I love Joico’s K-Pak line! A few years ago I got my hair dyed platinum blonde, normally I am already pretty blonde, but this was like white blonde. After that my ends were pretty destroyed, so I was told to use the K-Pak shampoo and conditioner to repair my poor hair. I was doubtful that a shampoo and conditioner could actually work that type of magic, but it worked! It was amazing and I recommend it to anyone that has damage they want to repair. This product is a mask so it can be used a few times a month just to repair and maintain your tresses.

And last but not least and by far the most confusing item in the bag, was CyberDerm Duo H20 Hydration & PM Anti Age – Full Sizes $60 &$115 respectively for 50ml

This was, how can I say, confusing. First of all the package has ZERO instructions on what these are or how to use them. Second of all, the cream like substance is in plastic syringes….um wha?

I think this was just a cute way to package it but I think it confused a lot of people.

Either way these are anti aging and hydrating sunscreens and they smell a little weird but I will definitely give them a try.

All in all the box this month was awesome!

If you want to get one of these boxes of love every month, you can sign up here.

I hope everyone has a great day and evening and I will see you back here tomorrow for a restaurant review.

Ta ta!

 

June Glymm Box

27 Jun

Good morning everyone! I hope everyone is having a fabulous week so far, luckily it is Wednesday and hump day! We’re halfway to the weekend!

I bet all the Canadian readers out there are getting excited because this weekend is our long weekend for Canada Day! Typically this weekend is known for fun summer parties, blender drinks and hot weather, but unfortunately for us Vancouverites it doesn’t look like that will be happening this year, well at least not the hot weather part.

I will definitely need the blender drinks to keep me from remembering how brutal the weather is.

Anyways enough whining! Let’s get to some beauty products.

The fun-ness of Glymm showed up the other day and as usual, it didn’t disappoint.

First of all it came in a pretty royal blue bag! Which is fun because I figured we’d  be getting pink bags every time. Luckily they’re switching it up!

They also stopped putting so many cards and flyers in the box, which is nice for the environment! From now on they will have the summary with the info for each part on their website instead.

The June haul

Awesome as usual.

First up, Vitamine & Sea Perfect Skin Solution $68 for 45ml

I’ve never used a skin oil before but I know friends who swear by their oils. A really popular one is Bio Oil and this seems like it is along the same lines!

Next up, LA FRESH Acetone Free Nail Polish Remover Wipes $9.99 for 18 individual packets

These are an amazing idea. If you’ve ever had a bottle of nail polish remover spill all over inside your bag, you will see how awesome these would be for travel.

Now we have Clark’s Botanicals Smoothing Marine Cream $115.00 for 50 ml

This cream is darn expensive for the full sized version, so I will make sure to savor this cream. It has a really light scent and says it is meant to soften the look of fine lines and diminishes redness and inflammation. It also says it can be used on your face or the back of your hands, I felt like that was a really specific spot….

I’m a big fan of perfume samples when we get them in glymm boxes because I feel like they come in the most handy. They are great to throw in your purse or gym bag to freshen up when needed. So obviously I loved the Salvador Dali It Is Dream which I cannot find on the Glymm site

This smells fabulous! It is girly but not too floral and I will definitely be using this over the summer!

Last but definitely not least, Harmony by Belvada Duo Lipstick in intense red $20.00

This was super fun and such a nice surprise.

If you press on one of the ends, the other end pops out like this

And then ta da, it’s a lip balm!

And then do the same on the other side, and it’s a bright red lipstick.

So this would be an awesome item to keep in your purse to go from day to night! I actually used this lipstick the other night and the color is gorgeous, it has pinky undertones so I think it is the right shade of red for my lighter skin!

As usual the Glymm box didn’t disappoint! If you’re looking to nab one for yourself, check out Glymm and pick one up for $12 a month!

Ta ta for now! See you tomorrow with a giveaway eeeeeee!!

May Glymm Box

24 May

Good morning lovelies! Happy Thursday!

I can’t even believe it’s already Thursday and somehow I haven’t managed to get anything together to post this week, until now. In my defense, Monday was a holidays so technically it’s only two days…

I was also busy with this little nugget

Meow! My name is Geoffrey!

He’s our new little fur baby. Sometimes he scratches me in the face and bites my nose in the night. He looks cute, but he has an evil side too, I call it, Bad Geoffrey.

Anyways, back to the point of this whole post, Glymm! Wee.

I got this little beaut in the mail the other day and to my initial dismay, when I opened the outer box, there was no shiny pink box inside, just some white tissue for packaging.

I was like…wtf!? First no jelly beans and now THIS? (I know, I got me a tough life.) But then, I discovered that Glymm replaced the shiny pink box with something even better…

a shiny pink bag!

These are going to be awesome to have around because you can never have too many makeup bags. This is also Glymm’s way of cutting down on disposable packaging!

Now for the goods, please be patient because I didn’t get a card inside my bag with a list of the items so my descriptions might be a little messed!

First up, CK Shock for him and Her


I love me some perfume samples. I was so excited to get these, one for me and one for Mr. Delish! I love this CK Shock for her, I think it is pretty and perfect for spring and summer. I also liked the for him version but Mr. Delish wasn’t so into it.

Next up, Coola Mineral Matte Cucumber Face Sunscreen

Basically this is a mattifying  and non greasy facial primer with SPF. It smells good and with the SPF this would be perfect for summer to keep your face protected against the suns damaging rays!

Caudalie Vinosource Duo

One is a Vinosource SOS Thirst Quenching Serum which is supposed to be a serum that locks in the moisture in your skin before you apply any other moisturizer or cream.

The second is Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet which is a moisturizer you would apply after the serum.

The packaging is really cute but it is kind of hard to get the cream out, and I think there would be enough for 1 or maybe 2 applications, not 3 as Glymm stated on their card.

Next up, Nu-Me Hydro Punch Hydrating Conditioner

This is a pretty big sample! It would be perfect to pack when you are going away. I’d say it would last a week or so depending on how much you use.  The smell is quite floral but is more subtle once you dry and style your hair.

Then we have Mereadesso Lip Treats (mine was the burgandy color)

This is a full size product! Yippee, we all love the full sized stuff. This is basically a tinted lip butter. It is moisturizing but also adds color. I see some other people got the Sheer Pink color and I must say, I wish I got that color instead. The burgundy is really dark and I’m just not a dark lip person, so I will probably give this to a friend.

Last but not least, another Caudalie product, Caudalie Crushed Cabernet Scrub

Crushed Cabernet? Does that mean it has wine in it? If so, I am in! This is a body scrub and it comes in this cute little jar. The smell is a little off putting but I will try ‘er out! I love body scrubs, again they are great for summer because they get rid of any flaky skin that you can get from all the hot & dry weather.

All in all, this months box was well worth the $10! I noticed the price has now gone up to $12 which is still more than a fair price, but I am happy I bought my year of Glymm when it was still $10 a month :)

If you are looking to get one of these babies, you can sign up here and get one of these little boxes of magic every month.

Phew, that was quite the post, Geoffrey’s just plum tired.

That’s him and Mr. Delish, the person who “hated” cats when I first met him. Umm…ya, I think this photo begs to differ.

Have a lovely Thursday friends!
