Sample Society July 2012 Sample Box - Review

Last day of July! This month flew by and just had to squeeze this review in before the month officially ends. It took me a while to get this review done, and I received this only a couple of weeks ago, so excuse my lateness. This is a sample box subscription service from beautybar,com with Allure magazine that comes with 5 beauty samples. This is the first box from them that I have received. Did I enjoy it? Let's see.

For $15 a month, you'll receive:
  • 5 deluxe-sized samples from beauty brands like Murad, Stila, and Oscar de la Renta fragrance.
  • $15 gift code to redeem on a $50 purchase - when any product from the brands you've sampled is included in your order.
  • Expert beauty advice to accompany your samples from the editors of Allure.
  • A bonus one-year subscription to Allure magazine ($12 value).

The eye cream was just okay. Nothing really fantastic, it's an eye cream. I liked the way it felt on my skin and it was not irritating, which was good. I will probably use it up but not a purchase for me. 

Jouer moisture tint was my absolute favorite thing I got in this box. It happened to be the exact color I needed and I loved the way it made my skin glow from within. Or at least that's how my skin looked. It absorbed really well and lasted all day long. I will be buying the full size and use the $15 gift code to get it. 

Meh. This was just Meh. I didn't really care for the smell and it kind of made my skin itchy once I put it on. Definitely not using this again. 

I will most likely pass this on to someone instead of using it. Just doesn't sound like a product for me. 

This was another product I really enjoyed. I've never tried anything from Vincent Longo and this duo lip pencil was amazing. I got Grape and Lavender Lite, which I am happy I ended up getting. I wore it a few times and the color stays long and is nicely pigmented. I would buy more of these in other colors.

Overall, I loved 2 products, 1 was semi-okay, and 2 were a no-go. Am I happy with this box? I would say yes! Being that I would have not tried and loved the Jouer tint and the Vincent Longo duo lop pencil without this box. Worth the $15 a month? So far yes. Once I use the gift code, I will update about how long it took to get the product, any problems, etc.

  1. Ive heard good things about Jouer products..Great products to try out doll xx

  2. So jealous your Jouer tint was the right one. Mine was too dark so I passed it on to my friend. I wasn't impressed with the smell either but I'm still finishing the bottle since I like to apply lotion to my hands at night. I like this month's box a lot!
