The Look Bag - February 2012

Today I received my first ever subscription beauty box (or in this case, bag) in the mail! I'm extremely excited, especially because it ended up being better than I had expected. So far I'm the only one that I know of that has received slightly different products in their bag. I believe this is because I signed up at the last minute and they probably ran out of the original samples. So they ended up giving me 2 samples from last months box, which is great for me because I REALLY wanted some of the samples from the last box! However, there was one product from this month that I didn't receive that I actually wanted: the Gingerbread Caffeine exfoliating soap by S.S. Soap Co.  I LOVE coffee, I live off of it and I was a Barista for years, and I'm absolutely convinced that caffeine fixes everything :).  I'll probably buy this on the Look Store anyway.

I haven't tried anything out yet, but once I do i'll be giving them separate reviews. I'll post my initials responses to the products though.
 The products came in a pink organza bag which I will probably use for storage or use to gift someone something.

 I put a quarter (if you can tell that's what it is) to show the size of these products.
KTO's Organic Vitality Rose and Cucumber Eye Cream.  The card that came with the package says that it's meant for aiding in micro circulation which reduces dark circles and puffiness.
My Thoughts: I'm REALLY excited about this, I love eye creams and I hate my dark circles. I've also been looking for an all over eye moisturizer so this is great.
Price: $30/1.18 fl Oz So the value of my 10ml sample is $8.39 

2.  Also seen in the picture above is the Suki Sensitive Cleansing Bar. A moisturizing cleansing bar made for the body and face and %100 percent natural and vegan.
My Thoughts: I'm pretty excited about this product since it can also be used for the whole body (I'm not much of a face cleanser person since I don't have problem areas there...yet).  It smells great too since it's made with lemongrass!  I can't wait to use this, however I've never actually used a bar soap before so this should be interesting!
Price: $3.96 member price

 3. Cailyn Gel Eyeliner in Black (plus bonus loose shadows to mix with). Long lasting, smudge proof and waterproof gel eyeliner with brush attached.
My Thoughts: This is a full sized product, which is great!  I've been looking for a gel eyeliner so I'm dying to try this out
Price: Retail is $21, for LookBag members it's $16.80.  So my value is $16.80 + the cost of the loose powders.

4/5. Obliphica Hairkop Treatment and Shadow Shields. The hair treatment is a serum for damaged and dry hair.  The shadow shields are used to keep your eye makeup from falling on other parts of your skin (while putting on eyeshadow etc).
My Thoughts: I'm not too crazy about either one of be honest I probably won't use either. Maybe I'll use the hair treatment since I have it, but I don't have dry or damaged hair. I also don't wear eyeshadow so the shields don't do much for me.
Price: $23.96/2.20z Hairkop Treatment.  My Value: $1.09 for 3ml. 
Price: $7.99 for 30 shields. My Value: $0.53 for 2.  

6. Jus D'Amour Perfume. Blend of coco palm, aqualeaf, Tahitian vanilla, and sandalwood.
My Thoughts: I love this scent! It's everything I want out of a perfume.  Unfortunately it's a bit pricey for me...
Price: $35.20 for 1/8oz.  My Gucci perfume cost 51 for 1oz!
I'm not sure how much was in the little vial but I believe it was probably 1ml which would make My Value: around $11.73.  But I'm not quite sure.

So my bag valued at around $43 + the two loose shadows.

So yes, I will be keeping the subscription for at least another month!
