Allure Sample Society Review – April 2015

Hi everyone!

It’s time for my monthly Sample Society review!

IMG_9698A bright, red box to brighten my day!

IMG_9700This mini-mag is the first thing I see when I open my box.

It has details on each product and an explanation of why the Beauty Directors picked them to be featured in the box.

IMG_9703Box Contents:

  • Mt. Sapola –  Lavender-Chamomile Body Lotion
  • Jane Iredale – Just Kissed Lip Plumper – Rio
  • Benefit Cosmetics – The POREfessional
  • Bumble and Bumble – Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil
  • Marc Jacobs – Daisy Dream
  • Illume – Tonka Noir Candle

IMG_9721Mt. Sapola –  Lavender-Chamomile Body Lotion

I just applied this lotion, and I don’t think it’s for me.  The scent is VERY strong!

The curators are aware of the strong scent though!  I read the mini-mag and laughed when the writer very bluntly said that this product is not for everyone!  I’ll see if any of my friends like it!

Apart from the scent, I really like this lotion.  It is very quick to absorb and doesn’t leave a residue.

This is the smallest lipstick sample I have ever received!  The canister is super small but also super cute!

Even though the cannister small, there is a lot of product inside.

When applied, there is a little bit of a tingle but not too much!

Rio is a light brown shade and isn’t quite for me.  I prefer rosier colored lipsticks.

I use POREfessional everyday, so I am very pleased to receive this in my box!

I’m quite surprised with how many Benefit products I’ve received in subscription boxes recently!  I got some in my last Sample Society box and in my last POPSUGAR Must Have.  No complaints from me though!

IMG_9726Bumble and Bumble – Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil

I have thin hair so I’m a little worried about adding oil to my hair.  After reading the mini-mag though, I have decided to give this oil a try!

The mini-mag says this oil is good for all hair types.  It also says that it smooths flyaways.  I have quite a bit of those, so I will definitely be giving this a try in the near future!

IMG_9729Marc Jacobs – Daisy Dream

I’ve gotten a sample of this perfume somewhere else before.  I can’t seem to remember where though.  Perhaps it was a Sephora freebie? Or maybe Ulta?

I like the smell of Daisy Dream when it’s sprayed into the air, but I don’t think I’d like it if it was sprayed on me.

I’ve never worn perfume before, and I would be quite overwhelmed if I started.

Illume – Tonka Noir Candle

I absolutely LOVE this candle!  It smells great and the packaging is adorable!

I can’t find a specific scent anywhere on the package but the Allure mini-mag says their are notes of mandarin, plum, rose, jasmine, tonka bean, musk, sandalwood, and Madagascar vanilla.  That’s a lot of notes!  All I can say is that it’s a calming and soothing scent!

I definitely wouldn’t mind a full-size of one of these candles!

IMG_9710My second month of Allure Sample Society was great!

I can’t wait to see what month three has in store for me!

Do you subscribe to Sample Society?!  What do you think of the April box?
