Waiting for me on the Porch, Part 1: September Glymm 2012

Hello Lovelies! The September Glymm Bag has arrived! 

It's a pretty nice looking bag and it was actually pretty hefty when I first picked it up! A promising bag this month? Time to unzip............

Hmmmmm, nothing really exciting. I mean, looking at this picture looks like something I would pack for a mini vacation. *yawn*

In the bag from left to right:
1) EVOLVh Ultrashine Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner. Luxury Organic Haircare, and it says on the front its expecially magnificent for colour treated hair. I don't have colour treated hair! *grrrr

2) Benta Berry 'Very Hydrating Facial Cream': if my limited French serves me right. Didn't we get a Benta Berry product last month?

3) Villainess Soaps Whipped Butter.

4) La Fresh Waterproof Makeup Remover: I guess I'm happy to see these. I haven't gotten to try them yet, but I have seen them in previous boxes.


So that's it. I'm a little stumped as to what exactly is going on. I know that when I start looking at other beauty blogger's Glymm bags this month, I expect some inequality. And the fact that I expect that so soon (this is only my second bag) is pretty sad. I am stuck with my year long sub so I hope for things to get better. I also got in on the nail polish promotion they just put out. You can get a full sized nail polish in your bag every month on top of the 4-5 samples. This is if you sub for a whole year by September 30. I fought to have this added to my subscription (they were not going to let me at first). So    I know October's bag will have one full-sized item I have a remote chance of liking and being excited about.

This was such a downer post to write:( Lovelies, notice this is titled Part 1. I promise Part 2 will be way chipper! :)

  2. Blah I am so not excited about Glymm this month.. or any month in general. I almost don't even want to post about it anymore because all of my posts are depressing hahah.

  4. My box hasn't arrived yet - I just had to peek! It's definitely kind of meh - why didn't you get the polish in this bag? And why was Glymm not going to honour this promo for you? (it's not yet Sept. 30).

    1. The promo starts in October. So you had to Sub for a whole year this month. When I initially asked for the promotion, they said they could not because it was for new members only. I had begun my sub in August. That just really set me off. I sent them a scathing email about what I thought of their first bag, a comparison with Luxe box customer service in a similar situation, and just overall disappointment and unhappiness. I didn't hold back any punches and demanded to be included in the service. They agreed to include me, but I will only receive the polishes until the end of my sub, Aug. 2013, which is fine and better then nothing.

  5. Ugh, I'm so not excited now...the bag is cool though. This will be my second to last Glymm bag and I don't think I will be renewing...

    1. Hey Jayne, I agree the bag is cool. But now I have 2 make-up bags sitting empty for now? lol Almost done with Glymm, eh? Something tells me they aren't going to try anything to win you back......

  7. They only mentioned that its good for colour treated hair because that's the hardest type of hair to care for. Anything good for coloured hair will be good for yours too. It mentions that it's good for all hair types.

    And we did get Bentaberry, but a different itty bitty moisturiser. Lame.

    Also, don't you at least like the lotion/body butter thing? I think it smells amazing!

    All in all though, I wasn't super happy with mine either x_x. Next month will be my last.

    1. Thanks for the info, Kristy. You learn something new everyday :)
      The body butter does smell good, but I got an even better one in my September TNBB, it kinda took the spot light away.
