My July Sample Society Box

I love the beginning of my month because all my beauty subscription boxes arrive! For those who don't know, Sample Society was created by BeautyBar.com in collaboration with Allure magazine. For $15 a month you receive 5 deluxe-sized samples, $15 gift code to redeem on a $50 purchase and expert beauty advice from the editors of Allure. Now they say "deluxe-sized" samples; however, I would say most of these samples are not deluxe sized. There's no monthly theme so it's a surprise what you're going to receive. I did like that there were more makeup products in this month's box. Here's what I received:

Borghese Tono Body Creme (1 oz/ 7 oz $47.50) | Sisley-Paris Hydra-Global Intense Anti-Aging Hydration (.14 oz/ 1.4 oz $250) | vbeaute Eye Never Nourishing Repair Eye Cream (.033 fl oz/ .5 fl oz $85) | Jouer Cosmetics Luminizing Moisture Tint SPF 20 in Bronzed (.17 fl oz/ $38) | Vincent Longo Duo Lip Pencil in Lavender Lite and Grape ($26)

Borghese lotion was very rich and felt hydrating. However, I didn't care much for the smell.

Holy crap is this an expensive product! I liked it but wouldn't shell out nearly $300 for it.


There was so little product, it was hard to do a review.

The Jouer tinted moisturizer was unfortunately too dark for me, would have liked to give this product a whirl since I heard good things.

The booklet said eye pencil but the product says lip pencil. They are pretty colors but too dark for my lips so perhaps I will use it as an eyeliner!
I also enjoy reading Allure's tips. Under "Moisturize Your Body Like a Pro" they recommend taking showers no longer than 15 minutes. Can anyone else do that?!

What did you receive in your box?


  1. Such cute items! There are so many of these monthly box things that I need to join!

  2. That sucks about the Jouer tinted moisturizer. I got that in my June Birchbox and loved it.


We all have opinions... I want to hear yours!
