November Glymm Box

Glymm is a world-leading, luxury based beauty and cosmetics website offering the best new products, expert advice, and an exclusive beauty community combined with a revolutionary subscription service that facilitates a life more beautiful.

A Glymm Box is a carefully curated selection of 3-5 luxury samples that we’ve tried and tested ourselves alongside our panel of beauty experts. From your favorite brands to hidden gems, your samples will span a number of categories to beautify you from the inside out. From hair care to skin care, make-up to brushes and tools, your life will be so beautiful and you will love switching it up every month! - from the Glymm.com FAQs

I signed up for a year's worth of Glymm Box recently and received my first one last week. I've been getting the Loose Button Luxe Boxes for most of the year and wanted to see what another monthly box subscription service was like. Let's dig in!

Glymm Box is in shiny pink packaging - I'm definitely not a pink girl (unless we're talking lipstick) but it's what's inside that counts, right? 

Tied with a pink and white ribbon, Glymm Box comes with a note about fall trends and how the products inside fit with them. Product information is on the back.

Glymm Box has an online Beauty Boutique where you can buy full-size versions of the samples inside as well as other items.

You can also earn points towards purchases in the Glymm Beauty Boutique. One way you can do this is by recommending Glymm Box to friends.

And here's the good stuff, what's inside!

A little glass container of Jelly Belly jellybeans!

RGB Nail Lacquer
I'm not familiar with RGB brand nail polish. My Glymm Box information card tells me that it's L.A.'s hottest contemporary nail care line and is 3 Free (this is a good thing). 

A bold cherry-red. Not terribly unique, but a hot colour nonetheless. I approve!

Annabelle Smudge Paint in Plummed 
Annabelle Smudge Paint is a new product, a potted cream liner with a built-in brush in the cap.

Clever packaging, the lid comes apart into two pieces and reattaches into a usable brush. Well, somewhat usable, to be honest. As a brush, it's not great. For a thin liner line, it's too thick and for an all-over creamy eyeshadow application, it's too thin.

Orlane Paris Light Smoothing Cream
Orlane Paris Light Smoothing Cream is a hypo-allergenic day cream infused with vitamins and minerals to protect your skin against daily toxins.

And it apparently needs a few pages of instructions.

Lise Watier Flash Lift Radiance Vial
I got a sample of Lise Watier's Flash Life Radiance Vial in my October Luxe Box. I like it, so I'm not complaining I got a second one!

Rahua Luxury Shampoo and Conditioner
Rahua is a luxury, organic line of haircare containing Rahua nut oil sold in top salons around the world and used by Gwyneth Paltrow (who does have enviably long, shiny hair). I gave these to a friend since I don't have luxurious tresses (A.K.A. long hair).

So that's my first Glymm Box. I'm most excited about the RGB nail lacquer.
