My Thoughts: My June Sample Society box

Thursday, June 27, 2013

My BeautyBar's Sample Society June box was fantastic! For $15 + tax ($16.25 for me) I received a full size Stila lip gloss! I LOVE Stila lip glosses.

I received June Kit E:
  1. Illume Desert Tulip Tin
  2. Murad Age Reform AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser
  3. Philosophy Hope in a Jar
  4. Stila Cosmetics Sheer Color Tinted Moisturizer
  5. Stila Cosmetics Lip Glaze - Apricot

The only thing new to me is the Illume Desert Tulip Tin candle, everything else I've used before or used a product similar to it (like Stila's lipglosses... I own a "few" of those).

So my thoughts...

Illume Desert Tulip Tin
Loving the fragrance of this candle. "...lively bouquet of red tulips, lilies and white tea rose accent this passionate blend of raspberry, Mandarin and musk." I really can't smell the musk, it's very subtle but I definitely can smell the white tea roses and Mandarin. Love the smell but ouch on the prices! So unless I could find these locally I wouldn't purchase it online unless there was some kind of sale.

Murad Age Reform AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser
I've actually used this in the past as a one-time only sample so I never could get a feel for how it would affect my skin in the long run so I can't wait to try this but right now I'm currently using Bliss fabulous foaming face wash from a past Test Tube and I'm currently thinking I may have to buy the full size Bliss one since I like it (just not crazy about the price - $38 - ouch).

Philosophy Hope in a Jar
I've used this many times in the past, all as samples of course, one day I may have to actually purchase this but considering how many sample boxes sends this sample out I doubt I'll have to buy this anytime soon. In the winter I find it to be too oily but right now my skin has been really dry so my skin is sucking up this moisturizer without leaving my skin feeling really oil. It's not my absolute favorite moisturizer from Philosophy (I actually like Take A Deep Breath more) but hey so long as I don't have to go out any buy one I'll continue to use the ones sent to me.

Stila Cosmetics Sheer Color Tinted Moisturizer
I haven't used this yet but I tend to love Stila's products so I'm hoping I'll like this one. The colors sent to me is Fair which maybe way too light for me especially now that I've tanned a bit thanks to all the walking I did in LA a couple of weeks ago. :|

Stila Cosmetics Lip Glaze - Apricot
Love this color. I didn't own this prior to receiving it but I do own and use other Stila lip glosses. (Kitten is my favorite.) The color is a lovely apricot color which I'll pair with a nice neutral eye or smokey eye.

Overall for $16.25 I think this month's Beauty Bar Sample Society box was worth the price.

Here's the odd thing, my account was cancelled yet I've receive no notification of it being cancelled obviously I was charged for my June box as I DID get it but odd that the account was cancelled. Going to have to contact them about it.
