February Glam Bag

This week I received my first Glam Bag.  What is a Glam Bag?  Thanks for asking. Glam Bags come from My Glam.  It's a monthly beauty subscription service where you receive 4-5 samples of different beauty products to try out.  The cost is $10 a month with free shipping but they they have a yearly subscription rate for $110 which drops the price down to $9.16. 

The good:
The brands.  They sent out brands like Freeman, Urban Decay, NYX, etc. 

The samples.  The samples are brands are well known and products I would use.  The sample sizes are good size and contain a useful amount of product.   

The choice.  You don't get to pick your samples which is great if you like surprises.

The packaging.  It comes with a cute makeup bag for all your goodies. 

The extras: Coupons were included in the bag for the sample products. 

You can cancel anytime with no penalties. Even with yearly subscriptions. 

The not so good:

Skip a month?  There is no option to skip a month.  If you don't want to receive a bag that month you have to cancel your subscription and re-sign up if you want to start it up again.  This could be a problem if there is a wait list to sign-up.  

The price: It works out to $2 an item which is reasonable for a couple of the items but a little overpriced for others. 

The choice: You don't get to pick you items so you may end up with things that you might not use. 


Without further ado....the kit (click on the pic for a larger version)

Yes my friends that is a bright hot pink mailer.  Opening my mailbox and seeing that put a smile on my face.  The pink bag with hearts is what all the goodies came in. 

The products:
.5 fl oz Freeman Facial Pineapple Enzyme Mask

1.5g NYX roll on shimmer for eyes, face and body with code for 30% off future purchase.  I received pink which is something I will use.

.75 fl oz X Out Shine Control with coupon for free gift with future purchase

.07 oz ea Premier facial serum and revitalizing mask with 50% off code for future purchase

2 squares Ghiradelli chocolate

$100 discount card for Nu-Me professional styling tools

That's a Glam Bag.  Although I'm not as excited about this kit as the Beauty Army one I'm going to continue receiving it and will keep you posted on future treasures. 

**I pay for these kits myself and am not any type of sponsor paid or unpaid for  My Glam.
