Sample Society August 2012 Box

I just received my August Sample Society box.  Since I live towards the west coast, I am one of the last to get my box :(

I am really excited about this box, I think it is one of the best ones that they have had.  I have been really happy with my Sample Society box, I like it better than I like my Birchbox even!

For those of you who don't know.  Sample Society is a monthly beauty subscription box that you pay $15 per month for.  You receive 5 deluxe size samples from great beauty brands.  You also get a $15 code with your box each month, to use toward a $50 purchase on any of the BRANDS that were sampled to you that month.  I like that it is towards the brand and not just the product!   You also get a little booklet filled with advice about the items you received and a one year subscription to Allure Magazine.  You can sign up or look at Sample Society here.

This month I received:

• PHYTO - Phytonectar Treatment Oil - Ultra Nourishing Oil Treatment
Sample size 0.33 fl oz $5.82
Full Size 1.7 fl oz $30
I have never heard of this brand and I have never tried a hot oil treatment on my hair, so I am pretty excited to try this out.  Theres not a lot in here, MAYBE for two uses.  This is a pre-shampoo treatment and it is for ultra dry hair.  The smell reminds me of cloves.

• DEBORAH LIPPMANN - Nail Lacquer - Private Dancer
Received full size 0.50 oz $18

Again, I had never heard of this brand.  I haven't tried the polish on yet but it looks so pretty, I definietly will be trying it soon.  I think $18 is a bit pricey for polish, so we will see how good it is!  I love purples though, so I am excited I got this!

• JANE IREDALE - Longest Lash Mascara - Black Ice
Sample Size 0.1 oz $7.85
Full Size 0.42 oz $33

I love Jane Iredale line of products.  I received a lip plumping lipstick a few months ago from Sample Society, I use it all the time.  I think her line of products are different and amazing!  I have never seen a mascara in a tube, but seriously its genius!!  I love that YOU control the look of your mascara with this, you control how much mascara gets on the wand.  I already have my mascara on today but I will be trying this out tomorrow!!!

• ELEMENTAL HERBOLOGY - Skin Care - Facial Detox, Purifying Facial Mask
Sample Size 0.5 fl oz $9.20
Full Size  2.5 fl oz $46

I have heard of this brand but I have never tried it.  I am super excited to try this out, I love masks so this will be fun!  This is the one item from Sample Society that everyone received that was different, some people got cleansers and other skin care items from this company. It has a clean smell to it.  

ARCONA - Cranberry Toner 
Sample Size 1 oz $8.60
Full Size 3.72 oz $32

I have never heard of this brand.  It says it is a toner but it does more than regular toners do.  It says it cleanses and removes makeup, tones and protects against free-radical damage.  Toners are my new love so I am really happy to receive this in my box.  You can read about how important toners are here.  This toner smells so yummy, It really does smell like cranberries!  I could eat it up!!  (probably not the best idea though).

•MALIN - Goetz's Vitamin E Face Moisturizer 
Sample Size .04 fl oz $0.45
Full Size 4 oz $45

This is new to Sample Society, they threw in a bonus item.  This is a sample size item, instead of the "deluxe" items that we get.  Its nice to get this to try though.  I have never heard of this brand, but I love moisturizers!  

I seriously LOVE everything in my box this month.  I will use every single thing in this box!!!  Thank You so much Sample Society!!!

My box this month is worth $49.92
