Finally received my box today! The samples are huge. :)

So is the pen something you can use over make-up or just a morning thing?

 

I have to say I really liked the perfume, but Chanel No. 5 is my fave so consider the source :)

I've used it over make up and it worked fine. I prefer it directly on my skin, I think.

Finally got my box today!  Sadly, the Dermalogica Microfoliant didn't have a lid on it and there was powder everywhere!  There wasn't much left in the bottle.  I emailed them with a picture, so hopefully they replace the Dermalogica.  That was the product that I was most excited for.

I will be trying the Dermalogica today. I tried the peel yesterday and it wasnt as bad as I remember. No bad reaction other than the tingling and I took it off immediately after that. No breakouts or redness today.

I just got a reply back from them and they are not going to replace the Dermalogica.  They said that they don't have any more samples to send out, so they credited my account $5.  I'm kind of bummed about it. icon_sad.gif

Well, you can buy it full size for 15 dollars with that credit! If you use your sample society code and the giftbb code, you'll get 35 off, and free shipping. I know its not the same, but fwiw I really like the product.

That is sad, but they refunded you 1/3 of the amount of the entire box for the broken sample so that's pretty awesome! Now you can get it for $20 off!

post #789 of 1713

True!  I can't complain too much.  With the $20 off, I could actually get the full size Dermalogica Microfoliant for only $20, which is a screaming deal.  Hmmmm....shopping to do!

Just saw this, after I posted my last post.  What is the gift bb code? I missed that somehow.  That would be awesome to get Dermalogica for that cheap!

I have yet to get my box :( hopefully it gets here tomorrow

post #792 of 1713

I'm still waiting on my box as well. It's supposed to get here by tomorrow though, so hopefully that's the case! 

post #793 of 1713

Nevermind, I found it!  Thank you!

Got my box today. I also got another package that was completely demolished (nothing to do with this box) and I was bummed so I think that took away from the excitement of the ss box but I'm not too thrilled just yet.

And the boxer (haha) perfume smells terrible. Ugh.
post #795 of 1713

I tried on the perfume. At first, I smelled like 1985. Then I smelled like baby powder. Then I poured a liberal dose of scented hand sanitizer on myself to drown it out.

 

That eye pen is a total, total win for me, I gotta admit.

The GIFTBB code is a coupon that works on top of the Sample Society code so you get a total of $30 off instead of $15. I got my box today. I love the eye pen. I gave my mom the Dermologica because I had ordered the full size using my code before the box even came lol. I received it in last month's Birchbox so I knew I loved it already. I love the sample sizes and if they continue to be as awesome as this month then they will probably replace Birchbox as my top subscription.

post #797 of 1713

Its great that you can use your monthly $15 credit with any other code! (its almost like the code is not there, but it is) you can pull off buying a $50 item for $25! I was almost going to buy the fekkai repair masque and serum BUT I told myself I wouldnt purchase anything unless I absolutely NEED it. My cart would add up to $57, with the codes -$32....

***Lurks within beautybar website for more oscar perfumes, finds "live in love" with rave reviews on amazon and macys...

bites back the urge to buy a $60 perfume for $30***

 

I sincerely hope nobody has tried that perfume, and if they have, I hope it smells horrible (please someone tell me its terrible)!!!!

hahahha, I haven't but based on the other one it probably smells like grandma. 

post #800 of 1713

I loved the box. Got mine 2 days ago. The fekkai glossing cream is great. I used to use it and the sample size is pretty big. The perfume I wasn't crazy about. My mom used to use Oscar and it reminded me of my mom.

post #801 of 1713



lol I was thinking about giving it to my friend whos older, but I dont want her to think that I think she would like the smell if she doesnt... I think I will just keep it maybe one of my aunts would like it

I think I'm in love with BeautyBar. Used both promo codes for $30 off of my purchase of Dermalogica + Philosophy's Pure Grace rollerball. Both Dermalogica & Philosophy had gifts with purchase (I won't be getting the multivitamin hand&nail treatment anymore but an after sun repair, I'm assuming they ran out of the hand&nail treatment) and the Philosophy gift w/ purchase is a 4 piece gift (!!!).. along with the three samples that I picked out.  My total = $33! It's too bad that NYC has tax (it's about $5 for my purchase, so without tax my total would've been $28)..

 

They split my shipment into two, so I'm apparently receiving one package today and one tomorrow (I ordered at like 9pm last night!).  *Crossing fingers* I hope their Sample Society boxes continue to amaze me.

I'm the same way! I ALWAYS want to buy perfume!! you should wait and try it at macy's or sephora (i'm sure they have it?). The coupons will still be up for awhile!

 Loving SS so far!!  Does anyone know how long the BBGIFT code is going to last?

post #805 of 1713


no idea but you have to have at least 50.00 in your cart in order to use both codes.

You have to have 50 in order to use the SS one anyway, so might as well use both! 

post #808 of 1713

BeautyBar just keeps getting better and better for me- With my order they sent a $15 off a $75 purchase coupon code. Can't wait to combine that puppy with my SS credit ;p

post #809 of 1713

It is awful, in my opinion anyway.  I tried it & it gave me a headache.  You are not missing out!

Awesome! :) I can see SS giving Birchbox serious competition as my # 1 subscription.
