This is my third month getting this box.Out of the three month's so far this is my second favorite with March being first and April being third. See what is inside my May box after the break!


My May box included:
-John Frieda Luxurious Volume 7 Day Volume In-Shower Treatment
-Julep Lip Gloss in "Graceful"
-Versace Eros Pour Femme
-Eau Thermale Avene Thermal Spring Water
-Laneige Water Sleeping Mask
-Alterna Carviar Repair Multi-Vitamin Heat Protection Spray

I'm happy the sample sizes are all a lot better than last month's Some of the items I will be passing on to family that I know I will not reach for.

Here is an example of the mini booklet that gives us information on all of the products:

Versace Eros Pour Femme
Mini Perfume. I have been on a perfume kick and love the adorable mini perfume bottle VS a typical super small sample vial! This scent is described as "an easy-to-like hard-to-describe" fragrance with notes of silician lemon, bergamot, pomegranate, jasmine, peony,sandalwood, amber and musk. The scent is okay to me, I don't hate it but I don't really really like it. To me it smells like a citrus floral that is pretty heady.

John Frieda Luxurious Volume 7 Day Volume In-Shower Treatment
This is a gel you apply in the shower that is supposed to create fullness that lasts 3 to 5 shampoos. Since I do everything in my power to fight my natural volume, I have to use for this and will be passing it on.

Alterna Carviar Repair Multi-Vitamin Heat Protection Spray
This is described as "A weightless styling spray that softens and protects hair" It is supposed to help damage from heat tools and includes vitamins B6, B12, E, C, A and Biotin! I don't use heat on my hair at all but I am going to give this a go as a refresher spray. I like the vitamins inside and it has a nice light, citrus scent.  I have tried other Alterna Caviar products and find them to be hit or miss- maybe I will do a collective review soon. 

Julep Lip Gloss in "Graceful"

I have gotten lip products in every Allure Sample Society box so far, but what is even better is I have liked all the shades! The mini of the Julep Lip Gloss in "Graceful" is a beautiful light pink color. This glided on my lips like butter, has a lot of great shine and isn't sticky or tacky at all. A great gloss in my opinion!

Laneige Water Sleeping Mask
This is an overnight hydrating mask from Korea that is supposed to help moisture, plump skin and leave it glowly. Key ingredients include cyclopentasiloxane, glycerin, trehalose and beta-glucan. It smells like light roses.  It says using this over other night time skincare ingredients helps everything underneath it become more effective. It says to be used 1 or 2x a week. I plan on subbing this in instead of the normal Argan and Maracuja Oils I usually use as my last step. I look forward to using it!

Eau Thermale Avene Thermal Spring Water
I have actually used this product before, I purchased it more than once. This is a skin-quenching ater spray that calms and softens sensitive and dry skin. Aside from Thermal Spring Water, it also has iron, manganese, zinc and copper. I like using it as soon as I am done working out so I don't break out from sweat between the time I finish working out to getting to the shower while I stretch and make my protein shake.

Overall I did enjoy this month's Sample Society box so the subscription will continue on until next month for me!
