July Sample Society Box!!!

Hey again, I am on a roll, 2nd blog post in 2 days!!! While I was on vacation I received my Sample Society box for July! Thankfully my Dad came by that day to check in on my fur children so he brought it inside! I am thrilled with the box this month!!! So without further ado here is what I got.

This is how the box comes! I really love the sturdy boxes and pretty silver tissue paper that I can use for gifting or storage!

On top of the products underneath the tissue paper is the Allure Magazine monthly beauty guide, these are so nice.

And then under the guide we find the products all nestled in their confetti bed. The packaging is great nothing moves or gets jostled!

The first product in the product guide is the Borghese Tono Body Cream. I am a sucker for body cremes and lotions and this size is perfect to throw in my purse. It is really really thick so a tiny bit goes a long long way. The scent is very nice not really really heavy which I like, there is nothing worse than the scent of your lotion overpowering your perfume. The sample worth is $4.34.

Second up is VBeaute Eye Never Nourishing Repair Eye Cream. I don't know what it is about eye cream but I love it, I just wish they weren't always in such tiny tubes when you get them as a sample. This stuff is very nice, I have been using it since I got home on Friday and I can definitely tell a difference in my dark bags under my eyes! Hopefully this sample will hold out long enough for me to find some that I like. The sample worth of this is $5.61.

Facial Moisturizer is something else I am a sucker for I use it 2 times a day normally. This is Sisley- Paris Hydra Global Intense Anti Aging Hydration creme. I know it is anti aging, and I know I am only 26, but its never to early to start worrying about things like wrinkles, lol. This stuff is nice, it goes on rather well and doesn't make my skin oily at all! The sample worth of this tiny .14 oz sample is $25.00, yes you read that right. The full size retails for $250.00. Personally I will never spend that kind of money on a face cream, but its really nice to try it.

 Next up is a Vincent Longo Duo Lip Pencil. This my dear readers is worth getting sample boxes, its Full Size!!!! As you can see the colors I got are White Glimmer and Sangria. Only problem is that I don't use lip liner, but a little known fact is that you can use lip liner as eyeliner too!!! I used the Sangria color last night when I went to go see Magic Mike, because you know I wanted to look pretty for the hot guys on the movie screen, LOL, it all made sense in my head. It goes on sooo smooth and the color is awesome, not to red but not to brown!!!! The worth of this product is $26.00!!!!

Last but not least is Jouer Cosmetics Luminizing Moisture Tint SPF 20. I received the shade Bronzed, which I am tan, but definitely not bronzed by any means. I swatched it on my hand just to be sure and though it blended in quite nicely it was way to dark for me. So, what I have decided to do is start collecting really cool samples like this that I can't use to at some point giveaway to one of my lucky blog readers. I am not sure when I will give the samples away, but it will be awesome! The sample worth of this is 3.80.

So, what do you guys think? Definitely worth the $15.00 that the sample box costs? I think so, the total worth of the whole box is $64.75 this month.

*please remember I am reviewing these products honestly, I spent my own money purchasing them*


  1. I got the LMT in my BB a while back, and it was definitely too dark for me too. Even the lightest shade Joeur makes looks like instant tan on me. Just a suggestion (in case you aren't set on giving it away), but you can use it as an eyeshadow for a more "naked" look or even as a primer for a darker base. It makes the sample last forever too :D

    1. Interesting, and since I have heard and seen rumors of this showing up in Birch Box this month I might give it a go if I get another.
