Sample Society - March Box and Reviews

So It's been about half a month since I've received my Sample Society subscription beauty box. Sample Society is part of Allure magazine and Beauty Bar. It's $15 a month along with a $15 coupon code towards a $50 purchase on their site (so if you buy something from their site then you pretty much get the sample box free!). The catch is that you have to buy something from one of the brands that was in the box for the month, luckily for me I love Fekkai hair products so this was easy for me!

1. Dermologica Daily Microexfoliant: I have never been able to get rid of my blackheads on my nose. ONE use of this product and they went away! I was absolutely SHOCKED! I try not to use it daily (even though you are supposed to) because I don't want my face to get used to it. So I use it about 2-3 times a week. This retails at $40-50 for a full size. And I believe this sample is about 1/3 of the full size.
2. Ren Face Mask: I was not actually interested in this product and ended up trading it with someone on  But I have honestly heard nothing but great things about it from the other members on the forum. This retials at $55 for a full size.
4. Oscar De La Renta's Esprit D'Oscar Deluxe rollerball perfume: I didn't like this smelled like giorgio (what my grandma uses). So I'm sending this off in another trade.  It's an impressive sample size though so I hope to get a different perfume from this beauty box at some point.

4. Skyn Icelandic Eye Relief Pen FULL SIZE: This is full size and retails at $22 I believe. I keep this at my office and it's nice to have since it's so portable. I'm not sure if it's working for my dark circles yet but it's really refreshing.
5. Fekkai Advanced Glossing Cream: This is a cream I have already been using for years. I think they changed the formula a bit but it still works well. I love it, and I use it after I straighten my hair to make it smoother and anti-frizzy. I love this cream and will probably use it for the rest of my life :) So i'm glad I got more of the product even though I already own the full size.

Overall this was a good box, the dermologica alone was worth the $15 since I got to try something that FINALLY gets rid of my blackheads! I also used the coupon code to get some more Fekkai products (which I will soon review). So I definitely got my money's worth out of this box and am excited to see what I get next.

The next box for April is being shipped to me now so i'll review it ASAP!

  1. I love the microexfoliant as well - I got the same thing in one of my boxes (Luxe Box) and it is a great size!
