Pretty Things: April Glymm Box

I’m so far behind with my beauty box reviews (I’ve already received May’s Glymm!) and I nearly skipped this one. I thought I should have though for when I go back and compare month to month. So let’s crack on with it.

1. Free Your Mane Hydrating Shampoo & Conditioner
Sample size: 7.4 mL each
Full size: 300 mL ($16)
These kind of samples are a bit lame to me because you could get them in a magazine. However, I like that it is from a brand I don’t know. I also like that it’s sulfate, paraben and phalate free. I can’t see anything that confirms that its cruelty-free.

2. Mai Couture Social Gloss
Full size!! ($28)
The colour I received was Sake Sunrise. It’s a nude gloss and to be honest, I think it’s a little to dark for me. It kind of washes me out. I’ll try it in a couple of weeks when I’ve freckled a bit and see if that makes a difference. Love that it’s a full size product! I can’t find out if they’re cruelty-free.

3. $100 Gift Certificate to NuMe!
This is AWESOME!! I’m definitely going to use this. Even though I’ll have to pay a bit to get a hair straightener or curling rod, it’d still be less than I’d pay at Sally’s Beauty Supply. Very excited. I just can’t decide what to get.

4. Atelier Cologne in Orange Sanguine
Sample size: unsure, it’s the typical perfume sample size
Full size: 30 mL ($60) and 200 mL ($165)
I was a little disappointed with this at first but when I saw the full size price I understood why the sample was so small. Plus, it’s from a  company that I don’t know much about. I love the scent. It smells exactly like oranges. It’s a perfect light scent for spring although I’d be nervous to wear it when the wasps and mosquitos are out! No clue on its cruelty-free status.

5. Lucia Soap No. 6 (Wild Ginger & F resh Fig)
Sample size: 25g
Full size: Package of 8 soaps ($17.50)
This is a really fancy soap if 8 of them costs $17.50! I have to say that when I popped this soap out of the box, it didn’t feel like a regular bar of soap. It’s very creamy and made with 100% Organic Shea Butter. I haven’t tried it out yet, I feel like I have to keep it for best! lol. I checked out the website and there are a lot of options in this scent so I’m curious to see what else they have to offer. Cruelty-free.

Overall: Great box! Still really impressed with the brands that are included in Glymm.  I’m also super excited about the gift certificates. If you know anything about the cruelty-free status of the brands I’m unsure of please let me know.

Did you receive April’s Glymm box? What did you think?

  1. I stilllll can’t decide if I want to get one of the beauty boxes. Glymm looks like the best one to me, can’t wait to see what was in the May box. Loving the new look of the site:)

    • Thank you for noticing! I just switched templates to something a bit more cleaner. I think it makes a big difference. I’ll be posting the May box this upcoming week. 🙂
