MyGlam Glam Bag for March

So I got the March MyGlam Glam Bag, and after three months of receiving them, I’m just not feeling it. I know it’s just $10 and it includes both full and sample sizes, but I can see the full sizes going by the wayside pretty quickly. And so far there really hasn’t been anything I’ve received that I would go right out and buy.

 

The past two months included samples from: Premier Dead Sea who I’ve seen in kiosks at the mall and gotten a “facial” from them. They use heavy selling tactics and their products are way too pricey. The Keracolor Leave-In Treatment left my long hair sticky feeling. Many other samples were very tiny and hardly able to be used for a single use.

The full size products have included two masks from Freeman. The Contour Brush is nice, but I have dozens of brushes already and didn’t find theirs to be the end-all they claim. And I’m not sure if the Murad Bronzing Boost is full size or not because it is really small!

 

Also, I don’t really need the little bags they send. So the $10 might have sounded like a great deal at the time, but for me the appeal is just not there. Are you still receiving your MyGlam or have you moved on to another beauty subscription service?

January’s Back to Nature MyGlam Glam Bag

I’m not one to subscribe to monthly deals, but I thought the MyGlam subscription might be a pretty good value. At just $10, Michelle Phan of YouTube notoriety, promises something that she actually delivers – products her team of stylists love, for all of us to try.

And I have to say right off the bat with the first product, I certainly agree. I have been using Wen Cleansing Conditioner for several months now. My stepdaughter Samantha turned me onto them last fall. I buy from QVC and get a better deal than buying from their website. Before Christmas it was a TSV so I got to try a wide variety of formulas for a great price. Needless to say I really like the product and my already long, thick, silky blonde hair has gotten even more compliments recently then normal. So if you get the chance to try this product, I’m saying Go For It!!

The Cucumber Facial Peel-Off Mask by Freeman is a lot of fun. I’ve always liked masks that dry on my face and I can peel off like a second skin. Kinda creepy, huh? Well, Halloween IS my favorite holiday! Ok, but I digress. I have seen Freeman products at the drugstores probably my entire life. And I’ve tried many different ones through the years. They are nice. They are inexpensive. And this one worked like other peel off masks I’ve used. I was really hoping for that nice cucumber smell since I love products with that fragrance. And it’s there. So I also give this product a big thumbs up!

On to the Sheercover Duo Concealor. It’s a Light/Medium color so it would work ok with my natural looking South Florida tan. Except that it’s not a product I would normally wear. So I can’t honestly review it and tell you much about it.

OMG I am a nail polish junkie though. I’m not even gonna tell ya how many I own, and how many brands. But THIS was the first bottle by theBalm in my collection. Hot Ticket Nail Polish. Sounds like fun. And maybe they sent me this color since i do live in South Florida. But ummmm well, I’m not really one to wear ORANGE nail polish. Orange You Glad You’re Not Blue. To tell you the truth I am Blue, and I’d rather had Blue. So I suppose I’ll save it for Halloween. Remember, I LOVE that holiday, so maybe you’ll see me sporting it on my nails then!

Last is the soft cloth cosmetic bag everything was attractively packaged in. It’s also thinly lined to repel minor leaks. It’s a cute design with a zippered top. I’m sure I can think of a million things to do with another little bag. I have tons of them because they are so useful. (One day I need to do a post on all of my bags. I take several of them with me grocery shopping, including insulated ones!)

There’s also a nice little postcard included that describes each product and includes pricing. Coupons were included too.

So my verdict, the value is definately beyond the $10 MyGlam took from my credit card, which included the shipping. I’m still in the plan and excited to see what February brings. I did miss out on December, which was their launch. If you haven’t already signed up for this deal, reconsider it! And at this price, NO, I don’t get anything for a referral.

(And that reflective pink bag in the background was the bubble mailer it all came in!)
