THE BIG UNVEIL: December 2011 Glymm Box

I wait for this time every month, and when my tracking information stated that my Glymm box had been delivered I couldn’t wait to get home and see what was inside.  So, without further ado, I present to you my December Glymm box:

Ahava Mineral Hand Cream (20 ml sample – full size: 3.4 oz, $20)

This is definitely one of my favourite items in the box – a nice travel sized hand cream.  I had the chance to try it out before heading back to work and I’m a fan already.  My hands get really dry in the winter and I’ve finally decided to smarten up and start using hand cream.  What I really like about this is the formula is nice and smooth and doesn’t leave your hands feeling a little greasy and oily, as I’ve found with many other hand creams.  It also has a nice light scent that I like.

Caudalie Vinopoerfect Enzymatic Peel Mask (sample size – full size: 40 ml, $40)

I’m looking forward to trying this out – the cooler weather and a busy time of the year has my skin behaving not so nicely.  Caudalie products are pretty expensive, so it’s a nice little treat to try them out once in a while.

Sula Beauty Natural Lip Gloss (Full size: $8)

I’ve never heard of Sula Beauty before this, and I love trying out new brands.  I really like this lipgloss – the consistency is perfect (not too thick or slippery) and the colour is really pretty – not too pink, it enhanced my natural colour nicely.  It has a bit of a sweet smell to it, which seems to be due to the fact that it is made from natural ingredients (bonus), but it’s not noticeable after you put it on.

Yves Saint Laurent La Parisienne (sample size – full size: 3 oz, $85)

First of all, let me just say this is an awesome sample size for a perfume – it’s definitely going to last a little while. I have never smelled this before, but was pleasantly surprised – it has a nice light, floral and feminine scent.  It’s not too overpowering, which is nice.  I’m looking forward to trying it out.

Also included in the Glymm box was a special gift from Glymm – a $10 gift card to use in the Beauty Boutique – I will definitely be putting  this to use, I’m just not sure what to get yet!

As always, everything available in the Glymm box can be bought online in the Glymm Beauty Boutique, and Glymm subscriptions are available for only $10 a month!

What did you think of the December Glymm Box?

  • My friend just got the same Glymm box. I haven’t subscribed (yet), but I love YSL Parisienne perfume! Slowly working my way through a 100mL bottle. The Sula lipgloss looks gorgeous too.

    I love how the subscriptions are are supposed to be beauty boxes and they give you fragrance….that being said i love my topbox subscription! they only lightly scent the box which is always pleasing instead of a boxey smell. Anyways they are doing a holiday contest on their facebook page where you can win up to $250 worth of 5 FULL size products!!! And they pick the winner on christmas day! what a neat present?

    I’m not a big fan of purfume, but I loved everything else in this month’s box! I got a hand/nail cream instead of the peel mask you got though! I love the lip gloss and the $10 gift card – very awesome of them!
