January Glymm Box

January in the beauty industry is always about clean, natural and minimal after the excess and glitter of the holiday season. In Canada there's always an increase in advertising in moisturizers as well. Would my January Glymm Box follow this trend? Let's see.

First, for reference, here's what Glymm is:
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 FAQs

The image on the insert card has soft, natural, clean makeup and grooming. There's a glow to the photo as if she's standing in a snowy field. She's wearing a fur hat or hood, so clearly she's cold. Check, check, check!

What's inside!
Let's take a look at what Glymm brought me this month.

Burt's Bees Naturally Nourishing Milk & Honey Body Lotion

Burt's Bees Naturally Nourishing Milk & Honey Body Lotion: Burt's Bees new and improved body lotion is clinically proven to restore moisture and replenish dry skin. Canada's favourite 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.

I've tried (and liked) this lotion. See my review here.

Kaia Naturals Juicy Bamboo Facial Cleansing Cloths

I'm not sure what an "urban" facial cloth is but I guess I'll find out!
