February Glymm Box

This month’s Glymm Box came with fewer samples but two full sized products.
For those of you who do not know what Glymm is, it is a service similar to Loose Button, Birchbox, Topbox, Glossy Box, etc. which offers monthly boxes of deluxe size product samples. Current subscription services are $10 monthly and $110 for 12 months (prices include shipping). Just like last month, I really enjoyed this month’s box—it was definitely worth the $10.

Sigma Mr. Bunny Brush Kit First Impressions

After months of saving, I have finally been able to purchase the Mr. Bunny Essential Brush Kit from Sigma.

So far I am really enjoying the kit and feel that it was definitely worth the money. I have washed all the brushes with a gentle shampoo and have used a few of them so far. None of the brushes started to shed when I washed them which is a good sign and an indication that they are of high quality. For me, the best part is that they are cruelty free and SO soft! They also come with a sturdy case that doubles as brush holders.  I will do a full review of the kit once I use the brushes a bit more.

This photo is a glimpse of all the brushes together (the E65 brush is missing from this photo). See below for individual brush photos.
