Mirenesse "Skincare" January Glamm Box

Saturday 12 January 2013

Hi Lovelies,

I got my Glamm boxes earlier in the week, but didn't have internet so this post is a little bit late. 

I decided to order the 3 boxes this month to see how different the "mixed" box is. 

Here's what's in the "Skincare" Glamm Box...

This is my favourite box out of the 3. Since everyone has different likes, it might not be as great for you. But I was thrilled with it.

One thing that I wasn't thrilled about was the packaging. They had it in different packaging this month, and it wasn't in a box. I prefer the small box it came in last month. Not just that it looked nicer, but also because it's called a glamm BOX and not glamm paper bag.

The box included...

Power Lift Superstar Eye Serum (5g)

This has been on my list of things I wanted to get from Mirenesse for a LONG time. But this 5gm sample costs $31.92 (or $39.90 for non VIPs). And I couldn't justify spending so much on a sample. So I'm thrilled to get this in the glam box.

It includes 35 ingredients to stop wrinkles and rejuvenate the skin around your eyes. It also helps with puffiness, dark circles and sagging. 

The one thing that I'm afraid of is falling in love with this! A full size is over $100...EKK! But if it helps to eliminate my dark circles, puffiness and fine wrinkles then it's worth the steep price tag. 

Endless Youth Magic Bead Botanical Cleanser (5g)

This is another product that I'm so excited about. You mix the emzyme powder with water and massage it onto your face. This exfoliant and cleanser reveals softer, brighter and smoother skin. It reminds me slightly of the powdered daily exfoliants from Alpha H and Dermalogica. 

I haven't used it yet, but can't wait to try it out. If I like it, I'll purchase a full size bottle.

This sample size retails for $7.96, or $9.95 for non VIPs.

Power Clear D-Blemish Thermal Pore Mask (5g)

I hadn't really noticed this before on the website, mostly because I'm not a huge fan of blemish masks, except for my beloved Biore "Warming Anti Blackhead Cleanser."

But once I saw it I was really pleased to get it. It helps to purify the skin. With the stresses of moving, I've had a lot of breakouts so I can't wait to see if this helps eliminate them. 

I like the little instructions that came with it! :)

Last month I received the full size cleanser in this range in my glamm box and I LOVE it! I think it's so great that I saw it on special for under $20 (along with 3 other minis) on Friday and bought it. Sadly it's not available anymore but the full size cleanser is this one. I'm planning on doing a review on it, but I do want to add now that this blemish cleanser is REALLY soft on the skin. It doesn't leave my skin dry or red and it smells divine. 

This retails for $4.50 or $5.95 for non VIPs.

Power Lift Micro Dynamic Foam Cleanser (10g)

I was surprised to see this, since it was in the last Skincare box. Hopefully it doesn't happen too much, especially considering we only get products from the one brand.

Luckily I really like this cleanser. It works well at getting rid of make up at the end of the day and has the most amazing citrus smells. So this will be left at my parents house for when I stay there. I found that even though this is a mini size, it lasted me nearly a week, using it twice daily. 

You can read the review here.

This retails for $7.16 or $8.95 for non VIPs.
So for the $15 it cost for the box, I got over $50 worth of value. One of the perks of being a VIP is that shipping is free. 

For a non VIP member it costs $15 for the box and $9.75 for shipping (if you only purchase this. If you purchase anything else from the site and it's over $99 you get free shipping). The retail of the box for a non VIP is $64.75.

As I said before, this is my favourite out of all the boxes. It had 2 products that were already on my wishlist, 1 that I'm now excited to use and the other is something I've used and loved.

Did you get the skincare box? Are you happy with it, or do you want it now that you've seen it?

PS I just wanted to add, that I noticed there has been a change to the format of the boxes. Last month the value was $80 with at least 1 fullsize product. This month the value is at $60 and you "may" (or may not) get a full size product. 

"You will receive a Surprise Glamm Box filled with 3 to 5 luxury Award Winning skincare products and may include at least 1 full size, and many travel sizes too! 
 The RRP Value of products in the Glamm Box as sold separately on mirenesse.com will be up to A$60.00."

  1. I suspended my VIP membership to try the Glamm packets, which I think are a better deal (or were, I hadn't read the new disclaimer) - I though 2 full sized products a month in the two packs was a better deal than the probable one for the VIP kits every 2 months (although the one I just got was awesome).
