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.
