If not, it is a company that sends you 4-5 "deluxe" samples for the fee of $12 monthly.
Glymm used to cost $10 per month and is still that price for the older subscribers. I find it fair and still very nice that they decided on this policy!
I do not think many of the founding customers would have been very pleased with a price increase.
This month I did notice the Glymm box has a different format....it is not in a box,but in a cute nylon cosmetic bag! With my box I received a glossy postcard that stated Glymm goes green and that it comes in a "eco-friendly Glymm bag".
I guess in a way a cosmetic bag can get reused,but also when you get so many cosmetic bags from everywhere else too I'm not sure how eco-friendly that is?
Receiving one or two bags is fine,but I sure hope that I do not receive a dozen Glymm bags if I subscribe for the year.
One company I subscribe to this year they had a cosmetic bag, then a matching tote bag,travel organizer.
If Glymm can find different reuseable ways to package items, that would be great. Then we would not be struck with a ton of cosmetic cases.
At the moment I have around 10 extra cosmetic cases I do not use and the best use I found was to wrap up birthday and holiday gifts for friends and family.

My thoughts on the Glymm May 2012 box:
So far I am very pleased with the new format of the Glymm box/bag.
I like every sample I received and plan to use them all!
The only product I am familiar with in this bag is the Caudalie eye serum- as I had a small 2ml tube from a store. The serum is very refreshing and good for sensitive skin. I'm happy to receive a half size tube as I would liek to buy this product,but have so many other eye creams at the moment.
The Cargo eyeshadow is nice, but I just received the same shade from a store online in their beauty sampler.
It would have been nicer if there was more than one colour choice for this. Guess I will put the Cargo shadow in the giveaway pile...
I will add more comments about the cosmetics I received as soon as I get to try them out!
If you subscribe to Glymm, what did you receive this month?
What do you think of the new format with the cosmetic bags?
