August Sample Society Box

1. Korres Cherry Lip Gloss in 33 Natural (full size $17)- Yayy! I was so excited to get a Korres product in my box because I love natural beauty products. The lip gloss smells like cherry Starburst to me and the color is a smidge darker than my natural lip color, making it a very good every day sheer lip gloss. The texture is a bit sticky. Overall, I really like this lip gloss and the next time I go to Sephora I'm going to try out a few more colors.

2. Jane Iredale PureLash Lash Extender & Conditioner (full size $16.50)- Ok, I can always use a lash booster. This one is pretty good it gave my lashes more volume and kept my mascara from falling out. I'm not sure if I would specifically go out of my way to buy it because I am so happy with my Great Lash mascara, but it's pretty good!

3. Dr. T's Supergoop! City Sunscreen Serum SPF 30 (full size $42)- Hmmm, I feel half half on this product. I love how this sunscreen contains antioxidants and is good for your skin. I like how lightweight it is as well. The only thing that bothers me is that it melts into my eyes a few hours later which causes them to sting. Because I normally don't wear makeup I need a sunscreen that will stay completely matte on my face for hours. For that reason I probably will not purchase this product.

4. Dr. Hauschka Cleansing Cream (full size $26)- Oooooo! A Dr. Hauschka product! I've been seeing this line in Germany for so many years but I haven't really picked up much from his line. This cleansing cream is super gentle and good for sensitive skin. It comes out in a paste and you're supposed to roll it onto your skin and then wash off. It smells like a mixture of apples and roses, very soft and pleasant. I would definitely buy this product again.

5. Brad Ultra Peel (full size $175)- An exfoliating gel without exfoliating beads? Whaaaaat? This was the most interesting product I received in my box this month. It's a clear gel that exfoliates your skin without having to physically scrub it. After using it my skin looked smoother and cleaner than before. I have to admit the price tag is a bit too scary for me, but for those who can afford it it's quite good.

This was an awesome month's box from Sample Society and I was really pleased with everything inside. I can't wait for next month's box! Thank you for reading and I really hope you enjoyed this post.

  1. I cancelled my Glossybox subscription and I've been thinking about resubscribing to this one (I was a subscriber this spring but just ended up having too many boxes/bags coming to my door)! I think I will!

    1. This is definitely my second favorite next to Glossybox!

  2. exfoliating gel = magic? Too bad the price tag is crazy high :\

    1. Yeah I agree, 175 is waaay too much.
