Allure Sample Society March 2015 Box

Sample Society is a beauty subscription box curated by Allure Magazine. For $15 a month you get 5 deluxe size beauty samples, a detailed mini magazine giving information about the products and a $10 coupon code to use off a $50 purchase from! Last month, I found a promo code for $5 off my first box, making it only $10 so I thought I would give it a try.

My March 2015 Box included:
-Juice Beauty Green Apply Age Defy Moisturizer
-Benefit Roller Lash Mascara
-Oscar Blandi Pronto Texture & Volume Spray
-Malin & Goetz Mojito Lip Balm
-Cargo Essential Lip Gloss in shade "Tuscany"

read more after the break!

I am quite pleased with my first box. In particular, the size of the samples- there were 2 full size lippies in here!! Being a lippie junkie, that made me happy.

Oscar Blandi Pronto Texture & Volume Spray
This is a dry texturizing spray to add volume, make dirty roots appear clean and boost waves with VP/VA copolymer, zeolite, hydrolyzed keratin and wheat protein. I haven't tried it yet, and man I do not need any more volume to my hair. I would have rather a different type of hair protect, maybe a cream or oil, but I will test this out as a dry shampoo and see how it works.

Juice Beauty Green Apple Age Defy Moisturizer
An anti-aging moisturizer loaded with organic ingredients, Vitamin C, alpha hydroxy acids, peptides, coenzyme Q10, vitamin A, shea butter & jojoba to brighten and smooth skin. I've used Juice Beauty products before and they always work very nicely on my skin! It left my skin feeling very smooth and it did look a bit brighter after a few nights. My skin has been extra breakout prone lately and I am glad this does not seem to be contributing at all to that problem.

Malin & Goetz Mojito Lip Balm

Malin & Goetz Mojito Lip Balm

A clear lip balm with hydrogenated polyisbutene fatty acids to moisturizer. This lip balm does not contain SPF, so I have been using it at night. It leaves my lips with a nice plump, glossy effect but it is completely clear. The Mojito smell/taste is incredible faint but nice. I wish it was a bit stronger! It doesn't feel sticky or tacky and feels nice on my lips. Thanks to a tip by my friend Nora, I also have been using this to temporarily mend some split ends together as well in my hair.

Cargo Gloss in "Tuscany"

Cargo Essential Lip Gloss in Tuscany
I was super, super, super happy I received a light babydoll pink color in this gloss! I only really wear pink lippies and usually in subscription boxes I get stuck with reds or colors I will never touch. This is a sheer, moisturizing gloss with jojoba oil and vitamin E. The pretty pink color is sheer, but noticeable and there's some lovely shimmer to it that I like. Like the lip balm in here, this gloss also does not feel sticky or tacky and glides on my lips like butter.

Benefit Roller Lash Mascara
I received a deluxe sample of this mascara weeks ago, check out my full detailed review here. I was so happy to receive another one of these because I am super crazy about this mascara! It may be new holy grail status I love it so much. I am going to leave the before and after of my eyelashes below and let that speak for itself.

Overall, I am pretty impressed with the Sample Society box. I am going to keep my subscription, at least for a few months to see if all of the boxes continue to be this good!
