Allure Sample Society – May 2015

Hi everyone!

It’s time for my monthly Sample Society review!

IMG_0604Such a bold, red box!

IMG_0608Each box comes with a mini magazine containing details on each product featured in the box.

  • Eau Thermale Avène – Thermal Spring Water
  • Versace – Eros Pour Femme
  • Julep – Lip Gloss

As you’ve probably figured out by now, face masks scare me a little!  This one is no exception.  I’m less leery of masks that you wash off after 15 minutes.  This mask is supposed to be slept in!  Yikes!  One of these days, I’ll work up the nerve to give this sleeping mask a try!

On a positive note, this mask smells great!  It’s fresh and clean!

After reading the directions on the bottle, I believe this mask is designed for people who style their hair right after getting out of the shower.  I shower at night and sleep with my hair wet, so this hair treatment isn’t for me.

This spring water spray is very interesting!  It’s literally water in an aerosol can.

My friend, Lindsey, has received this product before in another subscription box, and she says it’s quite refreshing.  After spraying it on my face a few minutes ago, I would have to agree with her!

I love how large this perfume sample is!  It’s so much bigger than the tiny samples I usually receive!

The only problems with this product are that I don’t wear perfume and I don’t like this scent.  It’s a little too old ladyish for me!

Oh well!  Maybe one of my friends will like it!

I’ve been subscribing to Julep for over a year, so I’ve received this lip gloss before.

The formula is fantastic.  It’s very moisturizing!

Graceful wouldn’t be my first choice, but the color is still pretty.  It’s a very light pink.

I recently started straightening my hair everyday, so this product couldn’t have come at a better time.

It smells great and seems to work pretty well too!

IMG_0648I’m not overly excited about this month’s box, but that’s okay.

Beauty subscription boxes are very hit or miss with me!

What do you think of the May Sample Society box?!
