March 2012 MyGlam

I just received my March MyGlam bag, and I am not quite sure how I feel.

What is in the bag?

1. Keracolor Color Enhancing Leave-In Treatment
2. Sachet with the following items:
*Pur-lisse Pur-Protect SPF 30 Essential Daily Moisturizer
*Murad Eye Lift Perfector
*DermStore $25 off $50 Coupon

3. Murad Absolute Bronzing Boost SPF 15
4. MyGlam Classic Crease Brush & Case

The reason that I am not too sure how I feel about MyGlam is the following. MyGlam advertises that "every bag contains 4 or 5 full-sized products or deluxe-sized samples for you to enjoy." Yet if you look at what I received you can easily tell that there is 1 full size (brush with case), 3 foil packets, 1 sample, and 1 coupon. I keep sticking in there another month to see if it gets better, but I am not really sure how much longer I will be subscribed to MyGlam.

I crunched the numbers and figured out the worth of the 3 "or" items.
Murad Sample is worth $6.46
Pur-Lisse Sample is worth $16.00
3Lab Sample is worth $38.64

I feel that a sample company should not send out an "or" item is the worth of those items are vastly different.

  1. That's why I personally don't like when subscription companies arbitrarily send out different bags. I was almost always disappointed with Birchbox, because I would receive one 'deluxe' sample and a bunch of random stuff I'd never use (hippie perfume, drink powder?). Just made it worse knowing there were boxes that included my deluxe sample, and other good deluxe samples in the same month.

    MyGlam doesn't have a real 'beauty quiz', so how would they know what sort of people would even use the bronzer? maybe some people are tan to begin with, etc.

    1. I'm the palest shade in most foundations, so the bronzer makes me look like an Oompa Loompa. I really hope MyGlam gets their stuff together, but I will probably cancel before they actually manage to do that. They have said since the beginning that they were working on a way to update credit cards, yet I have not seen anything happen.
