I got my first Sample Society box yesterday! Yay! The first thing that really stuck out with me about sample society is that they ship UPS so my package arrived very quickly and came right to my door instead of sitting out in the Florida heat. And they have 24/7 customer service so they answered all my questions very quickly! Lets jump right into the box because I know that's what everyone wants to see!
ALSO! I did an unboxing video for this on YouTube!! Check it out here: http://youtu.be/ve-SOoL0iKw
Illume Desert Tulip Scented Candle
ECRU Sea Clean Shampoo
Murad. Exfoliating Clenser
Again, I haven't tried this and I might but not anytime soon. Sample boxes have been sending me a lot of exfoliating stuff recently and to be honest I need to catch up. The consistency of this one is nice, but I really don't care for the smell. To me its really chemically. This sample is woth $5.50 and you can get a full size for $36.00.
Philosophy Hope in a Jar
This product... yes it moisturizes. But i really cant get past the smell. It really smells so so bad. Its something else that's very chemically. I had really high hopes for this because I had head such good things. But I would not buy this again. And I wont use it anymore. And this little sample is $15 on the sephora website!! What a waste to actually spend that much on it.
Stila Lip Glaze
The color they sent me is called "Apricot 08" and its a very shear color. This is almost full size and retails for $22. But... I really really hate this product. It has a nice shine to it, but I can't get past the taste! Its so bad! It's also very sticky. Which I wouldn't expect from a $22 product! I'm so disappointed in this since I was most excited to try this when I saw it.
Verdict$52.25 worth of prducts for a box I spent $15 on. Not bad at all. I really liked this box and I cant wait to get my box next month
On a side note: While I was writing this i got an e-mail from Birchbox saying I was off the waiting list and officially able to subscribe! YAY!
