Perhaps a little overdue, as the April 2012 Glymm Box has already been scheduled for delivery, but I’d like to talk about the items in the March 2012 Glymm Box nonetheless. Glymm is a Canadian beauty box that sends 4-5 samples to your door for a monthly fee of $10 CAD plus tax. You can collect Glymm Points which you can redeem for discounts should you want to purchase any of the full-sized products they have on their website. It is one of the 4 beauty boxes currently available in Canada – learn more about them in my post here.
If you remember from my initial post about it, I was not impressed by the contents of the March 2012 Glymm Box. After trying out the products for myself, I do believe that the Box has somewhat redeemed itself.
Despite only being shipped out yesterday, my first-ever Glymm Box was delivered today – one day ahead of schedule
Glymm is one of the 4 Canadian beauty boxes currently available on the market, sending 4-5 beauty products to your door every month for $10 CAD before tax. This bright pink box kept drawing my eye away from my notes, which I was supposed to be studying from. I couldn’t help myself – I opened it just before my last quick textbook review before leaving for my exam.
Well, these black leather boots are sold out for sure, but yesterday afternoon I lucked out while I was aimlessly browsing ALDO online. They had the dark brown ones on sale for $119.98 CAD! I ordered them before I could re-think it. Which was a good thing, because I just checked now and they’re out of the dark brown. They still have the black suede ones for $59.99 and a light brown for $74.99 – neither in my size though.
So we have established that I have ridiculous impulses to buy and try lots of products. I have now found monthly boxes of goodies that serve only to augment my shopping obsession.
Recently, I learned of the existence of Birchbox, a company that sends you 4-5 deluxe beauty samples every month for $10 USD, free shipping included. This was exciting, as I love deluxe samples (they’re in such cute little packaging!) because it lets you try enough of a product without committing to a full-sized (and full-priced) product. But like most good things in North America, they only ship within the US. So off I went, seeing if there are any Canadian versions of Birchbox.
After digging around, I found 4 “Canadian Birchboxes”:
…and then I proceeded to dissect each one. Be forewarned: this is going to be lengthy.
