When I first heard My Glam changed their shipping facility to North Carolina, I was super happy. If it’s one state over, it should get to me a lot quicker right? Eh, not so much.

Maybe it’s the shipping, maybe the post office juts doesn’t like me. Maybe it has to do with the fact that this month’s bag had to be shipped ground due to the nail polish not being air friendly. We’ll have to see next month. In the past, it’s taken me about 7-9 days for me to receive my bag from CA. One state over and it still takes me almost a week to get. I guess it’s somewhat of an improvement but people in the mid-west, west coast, and even Hawaii receive their’s first :(

Their blog states that since they’ve now moved to the east coast, west coast will be shipped first. They used the same shipping method back in CA, but in reverse, except mine was never shipped earlier than the west coast.

I know, I know…I’m impatient. It was never one of my virtues.

Anyhow, My Glam previously promised on Twitter that June and July’s bags were going to be awesome and I’m so happy that they did not dissapoint! The products in this months bag not only came in generous sample sizes, but also are all very useful.

Bag contents for July include:

  • Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil-Free Lotion
  • Yes To Cucumbers On-the-Go Facial Towelettes
  • NuMe HydroPunch Hydrating Conditioner
  • Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Polish in Starr
  • Circus by Andrea’s Choice in Reverso
  • July’s Glam bag comes in this colorful see through design, much like a beach bag. This bright, mesh bag is great for summer and to take on those beach/pool trips. The bag this month came with 2 OR items.

    Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil-Free Lotion [Purchase]

    Actual Value: $26.00 (4.2 fl oz)
    My Glam Value: $6.19 (1 fl oz)

    Description: Our Ultra Facial Oil-Free Lotion is a lightweight moisturizing lotion that helps visibly reduce excess oil on skin’s surface, leaving a shine-free and balanced appearance. It is non-greasy, and retains essential moisture in skin for a healthier, rebalanced skin barrier. A complex of hydrating ingredients – Imperata Cylindrica Root Extract, Antarcticine and Vitamin E – helps keep skin fresh and healthier looking all day. Oil-free, paraben-free, fragrance-free, colorant-free.

    The lotion smells a bit like alcohol but other that that, this is a pretty refreshing lotion for your skin. My skin is still kind of shiny/oily after using but I like the way it feels. If you have oily skin, I would recommend trying this out. Results seem to vary from person to person. A little of this goes a long way, you don’t need to over do it. It also makes a great base before makeup to ensure your skin stays moisturized.

    NuMe HydroPunch Hydrating Conditioner [Purchase]

    Actual Value: $24.00 (8.45 oz)
    My Glam Value: $1.90 (0.67 oz)

    Description: Made with naturally strengthening Bamboo, your hair is instantly detangled as sage extract and Jojoba oil increase the softness level of your hair. This formula is enriched with the SERATIN-K Patented Technology, an active, protein-based complex shown to provide excellent moisture, binding capacity, and hair follicle nourishment for a smooth and silky feel. Natural Argan oil from Morocco contains exceptionally high levels of essential fatty acids, such as linoleic acid (omega-6), for countering dryness in hair and loss of elasticity while preventing dull hair and split ends. A powerful antioxidant agent mends damage caused by weather or harsh chemicals. Healthy Vitamin E helps to regain shine and a gorgeous, vibrant look.

    Yum, another hair product in which I love the way it smells. I will consider purchasing a full size one of these in the future. I like the way it feels on my hair, it doesn’t weight it down nor does it leave it looking oily. Summer months mean it’s very important to be taking care of your hair on top of the normal shampoo/conditioner. NuMe offers a wide range of hair products to help maintain a healthy looking style.

    Yes To Cucumbers On-the-Go Facial Towelettes [Purchase]

    Actual Value: $2.99 (10 pack)
    My Glam Value: $2.99 (10 pack)

    Description: If you like the larger version, you’ll love these. Like their big brothers, the Yes To Cucumbers On The Go Facial Wipes are 98.7% natural, hypoallergenic, and made from organic cucumber and aloe vera. Designed for the trendy traveler, this package of travel towelettes will fit right into your purse (or a TSA size clear plastic bag!) to cleanse, soothe and remove makeup to refresh your beautiful face, regardless of where you are.

    Smell definitely ranges high on my list of point when it comes to products and I definitely love the scent of these. Not only are these super affordable, they also come in a travel sized packet, making it easy to take with you no matter where you are.

    Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Polish in Starr [Purchase]

    Actual Value: $18.00 (0.15 oz)
    My Glam Value: $8.40 (.07 oz)

    Description: This bestselling, sparkling diamond lip polish instantly creates the look of fuller, more voluptuous lips with luminous shine. Vitamins A and E help keep lips soft, smooth, and protected while the tingling sensation reminds you that it’s working.

    This thick, shimmery lip gloss adds some nice oomph to your lips and is great for any makeup finish. Those that did not receive the lip polish received a lip/cheek stain, which came in a full sized sample as opposed to the trial sample the Buxom comes in. Starr comes in a raspberry/mixed berry colored gloss.

    Circus by Andrea’s Choice in Reverso [Purchase]

    Actual Value: not yet listed (0.45 fl oz)
    My Glam Value: not yet listed (.45 fl oz)

    Description: Reverso is part of the Circus Nail Polish Collection by Andrea’s Choice. Each nail polish is chip resistant and is vegan, cruelty free and free of Formaldehyde, Toluene, and DBP.

    This is a real treat for My Glam subscribers. Circus is discovered and started by Andrea’s Choice, one of the guru’s for My Glam. This collection is not yet available for purchase to the public and will not be until Fall of 2012. Reverso is a bright, white shade. While I don’t think it looks well on it’s won, I think it will be great to add accents and designs with other nail polish colors.

    Total Value: $19.48 (not including the nail polish)
