I can't help it but I always peak to see what I am getting in my subscription boxes every month, so while I'm not surprised I am always excited!!!
Here is my box!
I received a total of 6 samples this month.
•Jane Iredale, Tantasia Self Tanner
Self Tanner has many virtues: It evens out skin tone, counteracts dullness, and disguises cellulite.
There isn't much in this little tube. I had to press pretty hard and then it came flying out but I think it might be empty now, oops! I can't remember the last time that I have used a self tanner, I remember looking like a oompa loompa and promised myself I would never do that again!!
But this does have a really good smell to it, it smells a lot like oranges!!! It says to apply it anywhere on face or body. No moisturizer is required. Build color daily until a golden tan has been achieved. Use frequently to maintain color.
Honestly, I'm not that bummed that there isn't much to try in this little tube because again, I don't want to turn out like the picture above ever, ever again! I do love Jane Iredale though!!!
Sample Size: They didn't list the amount that is in this sample but they are selling on eBay for around $6. I would guess maybe 0.50 oz so that would make it around $4.28
Full Size: 4.2 oz $36.00
• Kate Somerville, ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment
Her trusted hands scour the pores and peel away the fine lines of some of the most famous faces in Hollywood (Olivia Wilde and Kim Kardashian, to name a couple).
Wow, I was super shocked to see a Kate Somerville product in my box, I love Kate Somerville products! I have heard nothing but good things about this. I am an exfoliator addict so this is right up my alley!!
It says that it combats acne and blackheads, reduces discoloration and polishes skin. It smells like cinnamon to me, it smells really good.
Sample Size: .25 fl oz worth $10.62
Full Size: 2 fl oz $85.00
• Aromachology, Clean & Fresh Eau De Parfum
The most appropriate perfumes for day are clean and uplifting. Citrus fragrances can feel energizing, while lavender and green ones take the edge off stress.
I love when I get perfumes as long as they have the spray top! Every perfume that I have received from Sample Society has had that. THANK YOU SAMPLE SOCIETY!!!
This perfume smells like Dial soap to me. I don't ever see myself wearing this. I like fruity scents, I don't really care for the "clean" smell but I know that a lot of people do. If you like the clean smell, then yes this does smell good (if you like dial soap!)
Notes: White Tea, Bergamot, Green Tea, Cardamom, Lemon Balm, Precious Woods.
Sample Size: 5ml $5.00
Full Size: 100ml $100.00
• Oscar Blandi Pronto Wet Conditoner
So what if you weren't born with a head of naturally thick hair? With the right techniques, tools, and styling products, yours too can have killer curves.
This is a pretty good sample size, I love that it is an actual "deluxe" sample and not a foil sample claiming to be "deluxe", I also have been wanting to try Oscar Blandi! Unfortunately, the lid was unscrewed during shipping and spilt everywhere but at least my box smelt good!! I contacted BeautyBar.com and they emailed me right away saying that a replacement was on its way, talk about amazing customer service!!!!
This smells like lemon verbena, it smells sooooo good. The only thing that I hate about getting shampoo or conditioner samples is that you only usually get one, not both. I like to try these things together!!!
I am excited to try this line of products though. These are made to be used every other day, with a dry shampoo being used in between.
Sample Size: 1.7 fl oz $4.86
Full Size: 8.4 fl oz $24.00
• Erno Laszlo, Phormula 3-9 Balm
Most cold-weather skin problems can be attributed to one thing: barrier function.
This is a repair moisturizer, it smooths scars, wounds, burns, and dry skin. Dryness, redness and puffiness are treated while skin is strengthened.
I have never heard of this brand. It is a pretty pricey brand though, so I'm sure that a lot of people have heard of it and use it.
It says it is to be used after toning or after moisturizing. I will try this out tonight. I can't explain the smell of it because it is a lighter scent.
Sample Size: 0.10 fl oz $14.41
Full Size: 1.7 fl oz $245.00
Sample Society Extra
• Herban Essentials, Lavender Towelette
This is an antibacterial wipe that smells like lavender. It says that it is made from the highest quality pure essential oil, which makes them smell amazing but makes them naturally antibacterial and antiseptic as well.
Lavender towelettes can be used for more then just killing germs, the oil in then is supposed to be a great aroma, help with burns and scrapes, put in the dryer for a great smell, remove makeup, clean a babies bum! Okay well then......
Sample Size: 1 towelette $0.80
Full Size: 20 towelettes $16.00
So theres my October 2012 Sample Society box!! The box total is approx. $39.97
