MyGlam Bag

Well this is a delayed review, but it is here nonetheless! One good thing about doing my review now is that I've tried most of the products and can share an informed review with you. I have to say that my first impression of MyGlam was not so hot. I had caught wind the month before that there many unhappy customers and a lack of customer support to right their wrongs. I also read their tweet that said they had been working hard to get everyone's bag to them by Valentine's Day - my bag came a week after Valentine's Day. However, my complaints about the company end there! A few days before I got the package I received an e-mail with a tracking code, which I loved and it was definitely a nice touch. And the products.... well, let me show you :)

First, you have to love the envelope! It's so PINK! and I'm pretty sure this is the packaging it comes in every month, not just February. I actually made Tim bring this to me while I was at work because my tracker said it had been dropped off. (such a sweet husband) 

One of the sweetest things they sent (pun intended) was a bonus gift of chocolate. It took all of my self control to wait to photograph this before eating them!!

This is the first item I want to show you because it's the only one I'm not thrilled with. I've never been a big fan of masks like these and I don't really have a reason for it. This one in particular really stung my skin and made my face felt tighter and not hydrated. I'm sure this is just my skin though, I don't think it's a bad product and now I know never to get it for myself.

This was next product, X Out Shine Control, was one that I was really skeptical of. It's made by the same people who created Proactive (which did not work at all from me) and I usually find shine controls either drying or uneffective. I stand corrected with this though! This works great! I'm actually saving it for warmer months when I will need it.

This is a luxury brand sample set, which explains their small size. I only got one use out of the mask, but it worked really well! My face felt really fresh and rejuvinated and tighter (in a good way) even though I'm young and don't really need it. I looked up this company because I wasn't familiar with it and found that all their products use natural oils and other ingredients from the Dead Sea. Also, each of these products full size are a little over $100!

This is the only make up product in the bag and it is NYX Roll On Shimmer. The bottle says it can go on your face, eyes or body, but I think I would only use it on my eyes. Even after blending this out it still leaves a slight tint of the purple - not something I would want on my body. I've been putting it on top of brown eye shadow or as a final touch to a smokey eye, it adds a pretty final touch. I think this was a full size product and if it wasn't I know it'll last me a long time!

This is the last item and definitely the most exciting! It is a $100 gift certificate to any of the styling tools or hair extensions. So awesome!! I haven't decided what I'm going to get yet, I'm leaning towards the blow dryer, but we'll see. I am just blown away by this gift! I would have been pumped if this was the only thing in my bag!

Overall it was a great bag and I look forward to next month's!
