One thing I would like to see happen with S.S. is that they have their boxes influenced by the seasons and holidays. Winter have hair masks and red nail polish and for summer, bright colors and SPF products for example. And an item for each category, hair, face, makeup, hands

that's actually a good idea! Their boxes don't seem to have a "theme", or at least not one that I have noticed.

I am also getting Kit D.  This is my first month with SS, so I'll be interested to see what I get and whether I stick around.

 

Curious to know if the different kits are more different than similar.

I have been with Sample Society since the beginning. I liked that everyone got the same box. I never could win the box lottery when I had Birchbox. I could go for the same item in different colors to better suit complexions but I'm not a fan of the variations. I do like the idea of a seasonal themed box.

I'm hoping there's more lipstick in this box...I can never have enough. biggrin.gif  Oooo...or maybe some blush?

 

Looks like I'm getting Kit B, which I think I've gotten pretty much every month since they've started the variations.

Kit F here.  On their FB page on Jan 25, they said they'd give us a sneak peek, but nothing.... I'm always happy with the SS boxes so I can't wait!

I got kit B! I'm so excited to see what I get. I love BBSS boxes and you can't beat their customer service :-) Even if I can't use the products myself, my friends are privy to my sample box obsession and look forward to getting little treats here and there.

I get serious box envy, I wish they just changed like the colors to suit different skin tones--or if they send skincare, changed to our skin TYPE but the same general products

The charge for this month's box just kind of disappeared from my bank account yesterday...not quite sure why.
My charge did the same thing. It was pending for a few days and then disappeared.

I believe they actually ship the 1st Monday of the month, so Feb 4.  The dashboard always defaults til the 1st of the month til shipping actually starts.

    • My Netflix subscription is cancelled. I was only allowed the free month. I wanted so badly to watch a new show called Ares that came out Friday. I did not think I would get to see it before my subscription expired, but I did. I was able to watch it on the last day! I was so happy, because I'm not allowed to renew Netflix per my no buy rules. And I can't live with exceptions to my rules. Ares I loved and hated at the same time. I loved the cast, acting, sets, costumes, hair and makeup, exteriors, and story line. Ares is a great story about a poor and stressed college girl joining an Illuminati type of cult, in Amsterdam. But I hated all the gory horror, and they killed off so many interesting characters. The gory horror is hard to watch, and could be triggering to some. I know the gruesome elements are symbolizing something important in the story, but it's disturbing. The first episodes were good at developing the story, but at the end it was exhausting with all the violence. I think it would have been great as just a psychological drama. Still I'm so glad I got to watch it without violating my rules. Back to watching no buy videos on YouTube now. 
    • I didn't tryied the vitimin C serum cream for my skin, I think it very harsh when you are using it at your skin so it would be hard for me to have it I will try something else..
    • Today was pay day. I paid $22.90 extra on my credit card. I realized I'm now halfway done with my goal for the month - to pay $100.00 toward my credit card (including minimum payment). It's halfway through the month, so I am right on track! I made a $30 payment last week. I got deodorant, the only beauty item I need to replace. I ended up not getting the fancy new Secret or an Avon set, but just regular Secret Paris Rose from Dollar General. It was $5 - I thought that was a little high in price. I had this deo before during my No Buys, so it's a tradition. I didn't feel like spending extra or taking the time to order online. Too lazy to fill out the order pages! I sure am out of practice shopping! 
    • What am I wishing for right now? Yesterday I was looking at the Yves Rocher French website to see if they have anything new that might come to the US. I found something to love, but not a thing this time. In France, Yves Rocher has special salons. They have some fabulous sounding treatments. One I really fell in love with was an eyebrow treatment. They put eye patches under your eyes, then while those are on, they shape the eyebrows. After all is done, they apply an eye cream. That's what I'd love right now, and I suppose I could copy it at home with what I already have. 
    • It feels like it has been January for a long time, but we're only halfway through the month. There's still time to do a lot of things this month!  I have some empties! I finished my three DHC foil packets, the two mini micellar waters from my Yves Rocher Advent Calendar, and my Neutrogena Shampoo mini.  Now using up: June Jacobs Green Tea and Cucumber Shampoo mini Freeman Cucumber and Pink Salt Masque packet MAC Strobe Cream mini in Pinklite - This is a really nice cream that has a bit of pink color corrector and a bit of luminosity. It's great for a no makeup routine! Very pretty, and feels wonderful on the skin. I got it in an Ipsy bag.  I had the Freeman cucumber masque in my project use it up in January 2018. Now I have another one to use. There is a lot of product in the packet. It is enough for several weeks of use. But it is a clay masque, so it gets dry and messy in the packet. I recall having a hard time using it all up before. So I opened the packet all around the edges, and used a spatula to transfer the contents into an empty jar so it will stay fresh and be easier to use up. I'm looking forward to using it with my new masque brush! I will be having some fun masque and movie nights!
