Glymm bag June 2012!

My monthly Glymm sample bag showed up a few days ago and there have been quite a few interesting changes with their format lately.
Now the service is still monthly- but costs $12 per month. Your items come in a cosmetic bag instead of a cardboard box and you have to go online to look up the product info.
The only annoyance so far is having to go online to look up every item received and how to use it.
Also, I am not so sure I need a new cosmetic bag every month- hopefully Glymm will find some other kind of useful container they can use (lunch bag,mesh grocery bag,packable nylon tote (like the cheap Yves rocher kind that is great).

Now on to the items I received:

This month the Glymm cosmetic bag is a nice blue nylon material!
Inside the bag was:

* La Fresh Acetone-Free Nail Polish Remover Wipes x2 (reg size 18 packets $9.99 /Value $1.00)
I have not had a chance to try these yet. I am only doing my nails next hopefully this stands up to my bright nail polish!

* Vitamine & Sea : Perfect Skin Solution Serum (2ml vial on sample card/ Full size 45ml $68.00/ Value aprox $2.00)
Again, have not yet tried this item.
But I do like the way it is packaged on a sample card with all the ingredients and where the product is made.
I really hate it when companies just send a sample with no ingredient info.
From the packaging I also learned that this product is 100% natural and made in Montreal..and a vegan item!
I usually like face serums and have been reading people dislike this one because it is too oily?
It is all made of oils and the packaging states you just need 2 to 4 small drops- so this is a very concentrated product.
For myself this would be a good night time product I think.

*Clark's Botanicals: Smoothing Marine Cream (small jar,my guess is 10ml product/Full size 50ml $115.00/ Value $20)
This is a cream that contains glycolic acids and exfoliates and also helps with skin redness.
Sounds like a good product and the cream does feel light when applied to my hand. I will have to test this out later this week!
The cream is like a very light lotion and does not have a strong scent,which is great. I do not like strongly scented face products. This smells kind of like cocoa butter...or something?

* Belvada: Duo Lipstick 2-in-1 refillable lipstick and balm. (full size product/value $20.00).
The full size of the lipstick and balm was sent out!
The amount of each product is 3.5ml for the lipstick and 3.5ml for the balm.
I really like how this contains mainly natural ingredients and does not have a strong taste of any kind.
My skin is quite sensitive and my lips did not burn from applying this lipstick and balm!
Thankfully I was sent the soft pink shade as I do not wear red lip products.
The lipstick part I got is a light pink with a bit of shimmer in it- applied it looks very natural. The balm is a clear colour and goes on nicely too.
This is not a company I have heard of before,so I will look into what other products they make.
Also I have never seen a packaging like this before- it is a great idea.
My only minus with this product is the lip balm does not have SPF in it and usually I use sunscreen lip balm during the day.

*Salvador Dali perfumes It is Dream (2ml? sample spray vial/ full size 30ml $36.70/value $2.00)
I do not mind getting perfume samples,but do not really consider most of them deluxe as I can usually get all the samples I want easily.
I have never heard of this perfume before and it seems to be new for March 2012.
Not really something I would go out and try as it is listed as a fruity floral- and I dislike floral fragrances.
But this one is quite light and nice and seems good for daytime use.
Still not something I would wear and this specific perfume does not really interest me. Still I will put it in my bag and use it up (I do not hate it or want to give it away..or use as air freshener- which some people I know do with the samples they hate.....).

My overall impression of the June 2012 Glymm bag:

So far I like the variety of products and the blue bag is cute.
I really hope I will not get stuck with a dozen cosmetic bags this year-I already have a huge pile of them here that are unused.
The sample sizes were very good and it is nice to have two nail polish remover wipes to try, as they are single use.
