Glymm Delivers Beauty in a Box

Many of you are now familiar with the Luxe Box which is a really cool concept.  In the US I was told they have the same thing called the Birch Box.  I recently stumbled upon a similar concept called a Glymm Box.  I had signed up for their emails awhile ago but I hadn’t had a chance to actually sign up and try their service out.  

Well to my pleasant surprise Glymm.com contacted me to tell me more about the company and to partner up with Toronto Beauty Reviews to keep you, my readers, up to date on the world of fashion and beauty (how could I resist?!?).  I had a couple questions about the concept, hopefully my questions would be the same as other people’s questions too 🙂

Ok, so what is Glymm.com?
As I said, similar to the Luxe Box and the Birch Box a beauty Glymm Box subscription will get you a cute little beauty box filled with 4 – 5 sized deluxe-sized luxury beauty samples.  The samples will be hand-selected for you by Glymm’s panel of experts according to a personal beauty profile you will fill out.  I love this concept, it will make the whole experience more personal and suited to each individual.


How is Glymm.com different and how much does it cost?
Isn’t cost always the bottom line?  (It usually is for me anyway).  I was happy to hear that a subscription will cost $10/month or $110/year.  What makes Glymm.com so different? It’s the only Canadian company to offer a beauty box subscription AND a full online shopping boutique as well as an online fashion/beauty/lifestyle community. This way, you get to try the products out and talk about them in the community.  If you really love a product you can then also buy the full sized product directly from Glymm’s beauty boutique!


Is the Glymm box available in Canada only?
Right now Glymm only ships to Canada but according to the website a US box will be coming very soon! This makes me happy since I do feel bad leaving my American friends out 😉


What brands can I expect in my Glymm box?
Glymm says they will be showcasing luxury, niche and emerging brands.  Some of the current brands offered include Cargo (one of my favorites!), OPI, Stila, NARS, Gucci and Lise Watier (yay another Canadian favorite!).

Another thing I found interesting about the concept was the idea of Glymm Points which are essentially loyalty points (similar to Shopper’s Drug Mart Optimum points) which you accumulate and can use towards the purchase of full sized products! (LOVE that!)
It’s been only a month since Glymm.com was launched and the August Glymm box was sold out in two weeks (I missed out – but look forward to my September box).  Glymm is still in ‘beta’ mode so at the moment there are only a limited number of memberships available.  If you’d like to sign up for a Glymm.com membership you can click the image below which contains my referral code.  You don’t have to buy a subscription to become a member, however if you do sign up with my referral code and buy a subscription I will earn some Glymm points!



I’m really excited to be one of Glymm’s Canadian Beauty Ambassadors!  I can’t wait to receive my very first Glymm box and be part of the first group of people to experience this exciting site and community 🙂


Also….Glymm.com and I will be hosting a giveaway VERY soon!  So please keep your eyes peeled!  (hahaha – you like my teasing don’t you? 😛 )  In the meantime, go visit the site and explore.  I especially love the Expert Advice section that has tips and tricks, videos and tutorials!
