January Glymm Box!

Hey Guys! So first I want to say SORRY for the pictures. I took them at my boyfriend's house not in natural light and also with my binder as a background. I will post all the information it says on the card for you. :) 

The box hasn't changed :

The card in the box has another picture (like the December box):

The product card (all product information on the card will be with each individual product below):

The products!:

Kaia Naturals: Juicy Bamboo Facial Cleansing Cloths: One cloth, multiple functions! Juicy bamboo facial cloths that effectively and gently sweep away makeup, dirt and oil for clear, fresh skin! Soaked in vitamins and made with 99% natural ingredients, which make your skin feel soft, instead of stripped and tight. These urban facial cloths are the perfect solution for the girl on the go!
Full Price: $17.99 for 30 cloths

(I love the packaging on this sample)

I did test this cloth the night I got it. It took off the makeup I had on, including the mascara. Drugstore cloths and even MAC cloths, sting my upper lash line from scrubbing to take my makeup off. These did not. Although, it was a little more difficult to get eye shadow and mascara off because I had to scrub more. But like I said, it didn't irritate my eyes at all. I might look into purchasing these. They are on the expensive side, but if they work why not?



It does say one side is for face and one side is for eyes and lips (which I didn't use it on) To be honest, I couldn't tell the difference and to me they both worked the same :P

Vasanti Cosmetics: BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator: Alright beauties it's time to dramatically improve your skin's texture to reveal softer, brighter and younger looking skin! This aloe-enriched cleanser brightens with powerful papaya enzymes to give radiance, exfoliates with dermatologist grade micro-crystals which help smooth and hydrate your gentle skin.
Full Price: $34 for 120ml

I did try this too! It makes your skin sooooo soft! I will have to use it a couple more times to see if it really makes a difference in my skin and if it does I will fork out the money for the full size! It is a pretty big sample size because you barely need any.

Anastasia Beverly Hills: Clear Brow Gel: From the upscale salons of Beverly Hills, we bring you the brow expert, Anastasia's clear brow gel. Awarded as Allure's editors choice, this brow gel sets your perfect brow look and keeps brows in place all day. This best-selling formula tames unruly brows without leaving them stiff, flaky or sticky.
Full Price: $21 for 0.28 oz.

I have used this, I wasn't a huge fan of it. I felt that my brows were a little stiff at the end of the day, but I will give it more chances! Although, my drugstore clear mascara works fine for me so I probably won't buy the full size but it was good to try a higher end sample. 

Burt's Bees: Nourishing Milk and Honey Body Lotion: Burt's Bees new and improved body lotion is clinically proven to restore moisture and replenish dry skin. Canada's favourite natural beauty brand uses nature's best resources such as milk and honey to soothe, soften, and hydrate dry skin, without making it feel greasy. The coconut and vitamin E deliver beneficial nutrients to the skin. 
Full Price: $12.99 for 170g

I haven't tried this yet! :)

Cargo Cosmetics: Eye Pencil: Cargo eye pencils offer a cutting edge formulation! An incredibly high pigment pencil that delivers intense colour combined with a smudge-resistant formula for immediate and long-wearing results. Rich, deep colour that  glides on easily with just one application and minimal skipping.
Full Price: $16 for 2g

On my hand, this was hard to use so it might be hard on the upper or lower lash line but on the waterline it does glide super smooth and puts the colour on with one glide.

This month there was no jelly beans :( but there was a free lip shine you could get if you order from the Glymm website. I got this lip shine in my Glymm box last month complimentary. :)

Glymm is not doing the jelly beans anymore because the jars break :( even though I was collecting them :( but they assure they are doing something amazing!

The Value of the Box:
Kaia Facial Wipes: $0.60
Vasanti BrightenUp!: $3.40
Anastasia Brow Gel: $6.38
Burt's Bees Body Lotion: $1.07
Cargo Eye Pencil: $16

Total Value: $27.45

I got the exact same box - love the eye pencil and I agree, the Vasanti scrub is amazing! Wish they sold it on their site though (could have gotten a free lip shine if they did). Haven't used the face cloth yet, but wish they would have included a couple more.

Starting next month I'll be doing beauty box reviews on my blog as well - looking forward to what February has in store.

Jan Glymm Boxs was not impressed. I have cancelled my subscription with them. LB gave up in Oct. Now I am just with Topbox & signed up for Glossybox.


Glossybox is here in Canada now

AHHH! I accidentally erased the earlier comments!
I actually really liked the box this month :) I like how there was a variety of things.
There were 2 makeup products (one full size) and 2 skin care products and a body product!
I also liked the fact that the Burt's Bees product isn't expensive because if a person likes it, they can purchase it themselves without having to save up.
One thing I would have liked is to have 2 of the facial wipes.So you can try it more then once. :)

then i erased this one... not sure how.

CITYGIRL : The pencil went on my waterline soo smoothly! I forget to see how long it lasted though so I can compare it to my other ones. :( I will have to next time! The lip shines sold out really fast! I know a lot of people are not impressed with that. And I totally agree, they should have included a couple more cloths because I want to see if they compare to others and if they break me out! I look forward to seeing your posts!

MARSBAR35 : Oh no! Why didn't you like the glymm box? :( what would you want to see more of in a box? I agree on LuxeBox though.. Not sure how I feel. But I have to keep an open mind for my comparative video! This month I get a free TopBox for winning on their facebook! But I have also subscribed and get it for May! I signed up for GlossyBox too!! I will compare all the boxes again maybe in May or June because GlossyBox will have a pretty good first box and it wouldn't be fair to compare it will the others. :)

CityGirl January 24, 2012 at 8:42 PM

OMG congrats on winning the TopBox! I am definitely jealous - waiting for June to try one is not fun! Will look forward to your Topbox review next month.

EverHip03 January 24, 2012 at 8:45 PM

CITYGIRL: Have you liked them on Facebook? Every 100 likes they draw a new name! :) You could definitely have a chance to win one before then! I should get it tomorrow (thats what shipping says!) so I will film an open box video and post it probably Thursday! :)

I just thought the box was boring. Would like the box to have more trendy new type items. Ohh well.. to each its own.

EverHip03 January 29, 2012 at 1:06 PM

Marsbar35- I do agree. I didn't think the box was as exciting as the TopBox or the LuxeBox this month :( I think Glymm includes the smallest sample of them all. But I find that they include more make up which is why I like them! :)

marsbar35 January 29, 2012 at 2:20 PM

Glymm used to be my fav ,now its just blahh..

Hoping Topbbox & Glossybox will impress this month coming..

I'll have to find out how LB & Glymm do this time via blogs :)
