Sample Society August 2012!

Hey everyone! Sorry for the late post!! 😦 My first Sample Society box from Beauty Bar/Allure cam a couple weeks ago, and I LOVE IT! It’s $15/month and you get 5-6 deluxe beauty samples! I canceled my Birchbox and MyGlam because I wanted to try something different, I really like this! I can see myself using and enjoying all the products which has been rare for me.

Here’s the box, very sturdy ad a nice matte black. It’s about the same size as a Birchbox so it fits nicely in my mailbox! I guess this wall a collaboration with Allure and BeautyBar.com, which is an online beauty store, and I’m, happy to see the quality of everything inside!

When I open the box, of course there’s a little “card”, it’s more like a booklet, and it has tips, product info, and other things if you want to read it.

It also has a $15 off code with a $50 purchase on BeautyBar! That’s a nice little perk, and apparently you get this with every box! 🙂

Here are the contents of this months box! YAY! 😀 SO HAPPY. After being disappointed again and again with these beauty subscriptions, I’m happy that I actually got a box I’m excited about. The inside has a lot of black shredding so nothing was damaged or leaking! Gorgeous.

First things I got was this Phyto Phytonectar Oil Deluxe Sample. It’s a  Pre-Shampoo Ultra Nourishing Oil Treatment easily penetrates deeply into each strand bringing damaged, dehydrated hair back to life. It’s very thick, and you’re supposed to use it on damaged areas, leave on for 15 mins, then rinse in the shower. Can’t wait to try!

Next I got the Jane Iredale Longest Lash Mascara, Black Ice Deluxe Sample. It was a cute little tube of mascara with a nice thick brush. THe formula wasn’t very wet, and went on to give a VERY natural and soft look. I know Jane Iredale is a eco-conscious brand, so I’m definitely in support of that.

Next was the thing I was MOST excited about, a full size Deborah Lippman Nail Polish in Private Dancer!!! This is $18 in stores, this is by itself is worth more than what I payed for this month’s. Amazing. It’s a pretty metallic purple with a hint of duo chrome gold. It goes on more purple than anything else, but such an awesome color!!

Next is the Elemental Herbology Skin Care Deluxe Sample. It says it’s a pro-collagen synthesis with Elemental Herbology Cell Plumping – Winter Facial Hydrator. wow lol It has anti-aging properties, soothe, boost moisture, protect and plump, and improve your skin’s metabolism. It’s actually a really nice product. It feels like a very thin clay face mask. I like using it before I jump in the shower. The full size of this is $50 for 2.5oz, so this is a nice size sample! 🙂

(got this photo here) This is the Arcona Cranberry Toner, I had gotten a sample of this on my latest Beautyfix box, so I welcomed having another one! It’s a really nice gentle toner that lightly smells like cranberries! This three-in-one formula tones and hydrates, while also infusing skin with protective antioxidants to leave your complexion looking and feeling refreshed. It has a weird pearly powder at the bottom so you have to shake it before use. Overall, love it!!

Lastly is the Malin + Goetz Vitamin E Face Moisturizer Sample, I have yet to try this or hear about this brand, but it’s always nice to have a little thing of moisturizer around to throw in my purse or take with me when I’m traveling. Can’t wait to use this!

What do you guys think?! 🙂
