My June Glymm Box! Glymm is a subscription service for deluxe samples that arrive at my door each month. Recently. Glymm cut way back on the packaging - getting rid of the pink box for a pouch - and this month they went further. Instead of a card giving information about the sample, there's a small card directing me to go to a URL to find out details about the goodies inside.
Here's what was inside.
La Fresh Eco-Beauty Acetone-Free Nail Polish Remover ($9.99/18 pads): remove your polish in the most eco-friendly way possible. It does no harm to you or the planet, and it smells so delicious.
Remove polish and condition all 10 nails with just one pad. This acetone-free nail polish remover is packed with aloe, glycerin and vitamin E to moisturize and natural Rosemary Horsetail Extract to keep your nails strong. As the smell of natural Tuscan orange fills the air, you'll be elated to know that this product is free of harmful chemicals and uses the least amount of water possible - also, no need to rinse.
Review: I had time to try these and was skeptical how well they would work. I was surprised by the scent, first off - fresh orange, not sharp acetone. The instructions say that to hold the pad over the nail and then gently massage the polish off. By the time I got to the fourth nail, I knew that it was not going to make it to the fifth nail let alone the tenth. I had to open the second packet. Turns out that the first pad was dried out a little. The second pad was much more moist and was much easier to use. It would have taken the polish off all ten of my nails.
Overall I was impressed with how these pads worked, well the one that was fully moistened. They're much more expensive than the drugstore brand nail polish remover I normally use though.
Clark's Botanicals Smoothing Marine Cream (50 mL/$115 CDN): This exfoliating and moisturizing cream will leave your skin feeling smooth as can be.
This luxurious face cream gently exfoliates and leaves the skin intensely moisturized. Glycolic Acid and Algae Extracts soften the appearance of fine lines, while Jasmine Absolute helps soothe and nourish stressed-out skin. The Glycolic Acid will tingle gently as it exfoliates and boosts your skin's natural collagen production. Apply evenly to entire face once or twice a day. Follow with sunscreen (SPF 15 or higher). Never apply this product to red or peeling skin.
Clark's Botanicals donates a portion of sales to The Christopher Reeve Foundation.
Review: If I could spend $115 on a moisturizer, this would be it. It just feels INCREDIBLE on and my skin feels amazing using it. I will be very sad when I'm finished my sample.
Salvador Dali ItisDream (60 mL/$54): This fragrance radiates romance, tenderness, optimism and joy. If you're artistic and love to dream, then this is the fragrance for you.
This scent has a fruity-floral-woody composition. Flowers symbolize a gentle femininity, fruits denote joy and a sparking energy while the woody notes represent sensuality and deep emotions. The scent opens with fresh notes of grapefruit, black currant and apple. The heart features pink floral accords of rose, magnolia and hyacinth, while white cedar, amber and mush linger in the background.
Vitamine & Sea Perfect Skin Solution (45 mL/$68): This miracle serum is 100% natural blend of vitamin E and essential oils. It will leave your skin flawless.
Each ingredient plays a crucial role in keeping your skin looking perfect: carrot seed to fight acne, jasmine and geranium to immediately smooth, soften and even skin tone, rosewood and evening primrose to greatly reduce fine lines and signs of ageing, vitamin E to repair damaged cells and avocado oil to protect your skin from everyday environmental toxins. It even works for the most sensitive skin types. At night, gently massage 2-4 drops of serum onto damp, cleansed face and neck until fully absorbed.
Belvada Duo Lipstick in Harmony (3.4 g/$20 CDN): Everything your lips need for a night: some balm and some colour in one lustrous package.
Not only will your lips feel their finest with this soothing formula, but they will look just as good with long-lasting colour. This eye-catching and plush applicator makes for a conversation piece, while its purpose is super convenient. You can bring any combination of colours with you to achieve the ultimate lip experience.
*This is a curious product. I took a bunch of photos to show you what it is. Basically it's a double-ended lip balm and lipstick tube.
You push in one end to get the other one out.
And there you have it. My June Glymm Box!
