February MyGlam Bag

I know, I know. I said I would be more consistent about this whole blogging thing, but I swear I've been working, just behind the scenes.  

Let me just say, it's been a busy two weeks. I spent this entire weekend at school, finishing up a weekend seminar for my hybrid online health education class. I haven't had time to write, but I've been working on future posts. I haven't forgotten about this blog! I said I would try, and I will... I am. 

So. This is my February MyGlam bag. Ever heard of it? It's another one of those monthly beauty sample subscriptions like Birchbox. I considered getting the Birchbox subscription for awhile, but after seeing the contents, I didn't think it would be worth it because most of the stuff didn't interest me. But when MyGlam came along, I decided to try it out. I missed their first bag (the best one so far, IMO), but I did manage to make it for the January bag! I decided not to do a post about it since it's the end of February. But here's a quick list of the items I received: Freemans cucumber peel-off mask, theBalm eye shadow, Wen cleansing conditioner, Sheer Cover concealer and a cute nature-themed make-up bag. 

For February, MyGlam went with a Valentine's Day theme. What's in the bag: two Ghirardelli squares, X-Out Shine Control, NYX Roll-on Shimmer in Platinum, Freemans Goji Berry Hydration Mask, two samples of Dead Sea Premier and a $100 gift certificate to NUME. My initial thoughts? I wasn't too fond of this month's bag. So far, I've only used the hydration mask. It's not bad; it smells nice. I haven't touched any of the other samples, so it feels like a waste of a bag to me. But, they are a newly established company, and I'm curious to see what else they have planned. Soooooo, I will hold on to my subscription for a little longer. 

A lot of people have been complaining about the issues they've been having with MyGlam's shipping system and how things aren't getting shipped out on time or whatever. Listen. They're a new company. Cut them some slack! They're still trying to get the hang of things and they're working hard on getting great samples. They still need time to figure out a good system that really works for them. I can't imagine how it feels to be at the MyGlam office, reading through all the complaints and negative comments when I'm trying to make things better for all the complaining people! Sigh. I say, just lay off them. Maybe when they're 6 months in and still having these issues, then there's some reason to complain. Okay, I just wanted to get that out of my system... :)

Here's a little preview of posts to come!
