Going Glymm

I've seen lots of other beauty fans talk about their curated beauty sample boxes (ie. Birchbox, Glossybox, Loose Button) so I was excited to hear about Glymm, a new Canadian-based company that offers a monthly curated beauty-sample box for $10 CAD a month (the price includes shipping).

Glymm currently delivers to Canada (they're expanding to the US soon) and after reading a little bit about the company, I signed up for the first Glymm box before the company officially launched the program.

While I was waiting for my first Glymm box, I watched Glymm promote and interact with people via Facebook, email and Twitter. Every time I had a question or concern, the Glymm team was there and ready to answer my questions. So, they definitely have their customer service down pat. Now...what about the box itself?

After weeks of waiting (and some nervous times due to the Canada Post strike) I received my first Glymm box today!

The outer box was a thick cardboard mailer with the Glymm name around the side in their signature pink colour. Inside was a shiny new Glymm box.

Once I anxiously took the lid off, I was faced with a cute postcard - the front had a sweet note from Glymm and the back outlined the different products in this month's Glymm box, along with the prices for the full size versions of the products.

So, in this month's Glymm box:
- La Roche-Posay Anthelios SPF 60, 15 ml
- MyFaceWorks I Need to Detox Facemask (Green Tea facemask), 1 mask
- Stila Lip Glaze in Raspberry, 0.08 oz
- OPI nail polish in a silvery gray, mini sample size
- GUCCI Flora Fragrance, 5 ml / 0.16 fl oz
- a little jar of Jelly Belly beans in white and pink (yummy!)

I love this. It's like Christmas - a pretty box full of surprises!

In this month's box my favourite product is the Stila lip gloss, although I know my mom is going to love the mini GUCCI bottle since she collects mini perfume samples (not the tubes, but those really pretty miniature versions of the full-size bottles).

So, after experiencing their customer service first-hand, and receiving my first Glymm box, I'm definitely impressed with this company and am most likely going to sign up for the monthly box. I'll be sure to share what's in upcoming Glymm boxes!

You can sign up for more information or for your very own Glymm box here.

That's a really nice box you got there. It would be the perfect one to give to a girlfriend, sister or mom.

So it is a surprise what would come in the box each month, or it's the same for everybody?

I really like Luxe Box, but this looks nice too. Hmmm, maybe I should consider getting both?

Obaging: yes definitely! and you can buy gift subscriptions on Glymm too - it'd be a great surprise on their doorstep!

Halifax: you fill out a beauty survey after signing up and from the FAQ's it looks like they try to customize the products based on your answers. This was a preview launch box, so I think for this one, everyone got the same things.

Alx: I had been looking at the luxe box when I discovered Glymm. Would love to hear what you think of the Luxe one too as I'm curious about it as well.

bambaki83 - aren't they? i was really happy with everything.

eight - haha, I have been considering it but not sure how to stretch my budget to cover both. I have been keeping my eye on what others have been getting in their Luxe boxes though!

Hey, love this idea & it's so fun! $10 a month with shipping included is a pretty awesome deal. It's not TOO much money, but a really nice suprise to kinda make yourself feel spoiled.\
Thanks for posting about this!!!!
