By Terry Clarte De Rose Eye Serum- 4 ml- Value- $15.44

Nicole Perfume By Nicole Richie- 1.5 ml- Value- $1.50

Love the By Terry Eye Serum...Definitely thinking about buying the full size in this. The perfume, I wasn't really expecting much out of it but I do like the scent. It's very light, very feminine.

Lord & Berry Eye Liner- Full Size! Value- $15

Strivectin -SD Retexturizing Scrub- 1 oz- Value- $8.97

This is my first Lord & Berry product and I really like it a lot! This pencil glides very smoothly, no pulling! Perfect for smudging or a defined look. I am eager to try out some of their other products, I really want to try out the lip stick pencil! I have several StriVectin Products and love them all! This was no exception. I have only used it once so far but I could tell a difference. My was a lot smoother. It states that this would be a really good bi-weekly treatment, so that's what I am going to use it for.

Sue Devitt Lip Enhancing Gloss- Full Size! Value- $22

This was another newbie for me and I must say I really, really like this gloss! It visibly filled in my fine lines which provided me with a more smoother fuller apperance. I like the color too, I don't think it is one I would have picked for myself but I really like the color a lot and I love the applicator! It has the same applicator as a regular lipstick brush.

Pantene Expert Collection Advanced Thickening Treatment- 1.7 oz- Value- $5.80

I have not used this yet but I have read some incredible reviews on it and was so happy to see it in this box! I love the size of this deluxe sample. You can get a lot of uses out of it! No foil packets here!!

Verdict: I paid $15 for this box and received $68.71 worth of products  ( plus a years sub. to Allure Magazine and a $15 promo code) This is definitely my favorite box from Sample Society so far! I loved all the products that were included and I always subscribe to Allure Magazine. My subscription had just ended when I signed up for this box also, it worked out perfectly. I feel like I always get a good mix of products with this box and I always get either full size or "true" deluxe size samples! I have found some of my favorite products in this box. I love it and recommend this one to everyone!

    1. Yes, I have about 4 maybe 5 different StriVectin products and have truly loved them all. They are a little pricey but well worth it, in my opinion!

  2. I am a huge fan Sample Society! People think I'm retarded when I tell them about this, but they really do send out awesome stuff.

    1. Well, I certainly don't think your retarded...lmao... I have really enjoyed Sample Society and they send more high end products than most, I think and I have NEVER received foil packet samples from them...Only true deluxe and full size...This is my favorite one to date and I can't wait to see what next month brings...I also love that I get this one at the first of the month, I hate waiting on my boxes...I get too excited! Thanks for commenting!

  3. I am loving the Sample Society! There are so many amazing boxes that you subscribe to and review for us! I don't know which one to choose anymore!
