Sample Society January 2014

Recommended Posts

As of this morning, they still can't figure out where my shipment is, or why it's been backordered. I elected to wait it out a few days, and they issued me a half refund for the trouble.

I e-mailed about the backordered Kit C, and I am getting:

Butter London Handbag Cuticle Oil, Issey Miyake L'Eau d'Issey Eau de Toilette Sample, StriVectin Present Perfect, Orlane Paris Extreme Line Reducing Lip Care, and Stila Cosmetics Deluxe Beso Stay All Day Liquid Lip.

Oh good, I hope mine gets in today also! It looks like all the Kit C people are getting theirs late!

DOH! I got that last one from birchbox already! I love it but I don't need two of the same color lol. Hopefully they send out different colors.

I got the $5 credit too, which is nice. The thing is, I already had TWO of that sample already, since they messed up my box that month and sent me one wrong sample, so they sent me a whole new box. Oh well. Now I can really, really tell if I like that product or not, lol

How long have you been a subscriber? I'm a little perturbed that I received a duplicate sample in the 4 months I've had an account so I hope this isn't a recurring thing.

This month will be my first month and i'm pretty excited! I'm getting Kit E. How often do they send out perfume samples? Slowly, I have lost all of my atomizers and make a mess of those vials when they don't have a spray top. It would have been nice to receive the horse power instead of the cuticle oil since I've been searching for something to help strengthen my nails, but I'll be looking out for it to show up on someone's trade thread now =) Can someone comment on how it compares to Julep's Oxygen treatment?

In my experience, perfume might be sent out three or four times a year. I'm one of the rare birds who doesn't mind perfume samples!

My box didn't work out for me this month, but my mom is very excited about the Horsepower. I tried and tossed the Nicole Richie fragrance -- it was a little too sweet for my taste. I'm a little more excited about the Strivectin eye cream now that I hear it's a Best of Beauty winner, but there's something about the Strivectin line and packaging that makes me feel old and saggy, even though I haven't had to deal with that yet (I'm in my 30s). I do like M+G, but I'm drowning in moisturizer at the moment, so I'm not sure when I'll get around to it. To assuage my disappointment, I bought a Stila Color Balm in Sonya, which is lovely. :patches:

 

Last night I added a couple pumps of my regular cleanser (Cetaphil) to the powder Dermatolgica exfoliant I received last month and liked the results a lot. It makes it a lot easier to apply/use.

You're very lucky! I had that happen last month and was more or less told "too bad, so sad."

 

   "The Sample Society is an amazing program that we have that gives our customers a chance to sample some of the products that we have on our site.  Although, we do try to provide different monthlysamples there may be a time when you receive a duplicate product based on an overwhelming response to the selection.  But trust us, there are more wonderful products in store for Sample Society kit that I'm sure you will love."

 

I had hoped sample society would fill the void that glossybox left. I'm sad that it looks like it won't be that way.

I got mine today (KIt E) and I just don't care much for it, unfortunately. THe perfume smells pretty good. I like the shampoo (have used it before) but I hate getting a shampoo sample without the conditioner, so it'll just get put aside until I find a matching conditioner. The strivectin will be used. The Orlane lip stuff is pretty blah (I dn't have lines on my lips, I like anti-aging but unecessary for lips). I have so many cuticle oils that I'm not terribly excited about that, either (but would have been overjoyed about the nail fertilizer). Oh well, you win some, you lose some.

Is there a specific trade thread just for Sample Society stuff? 

 

I am getting the Stila Lip gloss, but would rather have the lipstick/balm.

I got my box this morning and guess what?!?  My Orlane Line Reducing Lip Care product is just a box - NO product in it!  

 

This is 2 months I have had issues (last month I got 2 dry shampoos and one of them busted open all over the box).  

 

Going to give them a call this time.

    • Major beauty packaging companies decided to launch paper cosmetic tube for the consumers. These tubes are more eco-friendly.  This was  announced at  Luxe Pack Monaco. Major plastic part will be replaced with a bio-based, paper-like material.  Production is expected to start  in the mid of 2020. The replacement of plastics is environment friendly and  a cardboard-based tube will be a good achievement to save environment.
    • Hey guys! I want to make a great gift for my girlfriend, has anyone used this nail polish set from Aliexpress? What do you think? it is a good choice for a gift? Nail Polish Set. Thanks!
    • I made another payment on my credit card, and the remaining balance is now $140.  Yves Rocher Beauty Advent Calendar so far:  Day 1 - Sel D'Azur perfume - I've been wanting to try something from Yves Rocher's extensive line of new perfumes. This one is meant to evoke a walk on the Amalfi coast, with citrus and sea salt.  Day 2 - First Snowflakes Shower Gel - One of the new limited edition holiday products. This is lovely! It's white almond, but less sweet and more powdery than the Perlier White Almond, which I also love. I might have to get the big bottle!  Day 3 - Cream shampoo with avocado - also a new product I haven't tried yet. Very good shampoo that brings out natural waves.  Day 4 - Four sided nail file - A good file that really is effective.  Day 5 - Micellar water for sensitive skin.  Day 6 - Clear base coat for nails.  Day 7 - Face cream for sensitive skin.  I had a really hard time going back to work after Thanksgiving. But after Monday, it's been quite slow, thank goodness. They are allowing people to volunteer to leave early. I never do, even though I feel tired and burned out, because I'm so focused on my financial goals. I have been watching a vlogmas on You Tube from the channel iseedee. This is a Swedish girl who is frugal yet glamorous, and has inspired me in my No Buys. Her vlogmas (or Christmas Countdown 2019 as she calls it), is simple yet so beautiful and cozy. She is so organized, and really knows how to celebrate the holidays. She makes a simple Saturday of doing laundry and going grocery shopping seem special. I guess she personifies what you would call Hygge. iseedee is going through The Body Shop Beauty Advent Calendar. She has the big one with the full sized items. This is the only vlogmas I've been keeping up with.  I've been Christmas shopping (for other people, not for myself, lol), and also I'm going to be organizing the buffet at my church later this month. So I don't think I can pay any more on my credit card until Boxing Day. That's the day I am hoping to pay it off!!! After that I might buy myself a little treat or two, and then organize my plan for the New Year.
