Glymm September 2012 Review

After much thought, I have decided I will be cancelling my Glymm membership. I decided after I received last month's bag that it just wasn't for me anymore. Glymm's customer service convinced me to stay on for another month by enticing me with a free item in my next bag. (I'm assuming that will be showing up in my October box). At this point though, I don't think that extra item is going to make much of a difference though.

I was finally taken off the waiting list for Topbox. And really, there are only so many subscriptions a person can have and I already have a backlog of products from all of my different boxes. Glymm's samples are consistently small and I just don't think it's worth the money. Not to mention the cosmetic bag they insist on sending each month. Enough already!

Let's take a look at what was included in the September bag.

I had peaked again to see what would be arriving, and I noticed that one of the items was a shampoo. I will admit, my heart sank a little bit. I don't use conventional shampoo in my hair, only sulfate free shampoo. There wasn't very  much information in the other reviews that I had read, so I just figured this was regular shampoo. Boy, was I surprised when I pulled this out of the bag and it was, in fact, sulfate free shampoo! I did a little dance of joy!

Elvolh UltraShine Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner

Glymm says each of these is good for about 14 uses. After trying them out one time I can already tell that I will get way more that 14 uses out of the Shampoo and probably closer to 5 or 6 uses out of the conditioner.

The shampoo is very lathering. I noticed, with even a very small amount, it worked into a nice thick lather and felt really nice in my hair. The condition seemed to soak into my hair very quickly (which I guess is a good thing) but I can see how I would use a lot of this in a single hair wash. 

The next thing out of the bag was very similar to a cream we received from Glymm last month, or the month before. It is Bentaberry Super Moisturizing Face Cream for Girls (I think the only difference between this one and the previous sample was the last one was for boys AND girls.... whatever that means?!) I haven't had a chance to use this yet as I have a huge backlog of face creams. 

Next up are Waterprood Makeup Remover wipes from LA Fresh. I have used this brand once before and I will admit, I did really like it. The previous sample I received was acetone free nail polish wipes. I haven't given these a go yet, but I am looking forward to using them.
Last up was a really delicious smelling body cream. It is Villainess Dulce En Fuego Whipped Body Creme. I really like this cream, it is very moisturizing without being greasy. It smells heavenly... like cinnamon and spices. Reminds me of autumn.

I should also mention that Glymm was kind enough to send yet ANOTHER cosmetic bag this month. This time it was a cream colored one in the same style as last month's black one. This is getting old really fast, and definitely doesn't make up for a lack of samples included.

  1. Great review! It's interesting to hear that you will get more than 14 uses from your shampoo, it seems to small for that and I thought it was a typo. I gave it to my mom so I won't be able to try it myself.

    I really loved the Villainess cream and ended up getting it full size with the help of my Glymm points. I only have 112 points so I wanted something with free shipping and since this is my last box, it had to be something here. This was the best worth that I found. It smells so good. I put it on at work or before bed to feel all calm and yummy ;)
