Alterna 48 Volume Spray
Another Alterna product (I think a different spray)
Murad collagen infusion
AHAVA lotion
Phyto Mask (he didn't have much info about this) 

Hmph. I'm not sure how I feel about this kit yet. There are so many hair products! I really hated the Fekkai, and I don't use dry shampoo, so the past two months with hair products kind of do nothing for me. Are they always so hair-centric? I've only been subscribed for two months.

i feel like it must depend on your beauty profile answers? Feb is my second month, and I didn't get a single hair product last month.. two kinds of face cream, perfume, cuticle oil and lip(chap)stick

This is what I'm getting, too.  Ugh.  I guess this will be my last month with Sample Society.  I was hoping for more makeup items, but almost everything I get is skin care or hair care.  Looks like no makeup this month, either.  I am swimming in skin care samples right now! I think I need 3 more faces to use all this stuff!

No makeup!  There is usually at least one makeup item, and I was hoping for lip or nail polish this month for february.  Oh well.  Still a couple products i haven't tried.

I agree that I would like to see some makeup in kit E, but I am shocked that there are four new items to me--and that I want to try them all.

Thanks for posting this (and thanks @Momsgotmail for being the brave soul among us). I was a little bummed out to be receiving 2 more Alterna products after receiving 2 in December (I don't really use hair product besides shamp/cond, and occasionally detangler and dry shampoo), but now I'm psyched to try the other products.

Thanks for posting Kit F! I just called SS and then went on here so I could post what they told me (I should have checked here FIRST!).  I am excited to try all of these products, as they are all new items to me!

I don't get why they put two Ahava or Alterna or Murad samples in some boxes this month instead of spreading them out so we wouldn't have brand repeats? Seems like an odd choice.

Yeah I didn't get that either.  It's almost forcing me to seek out a swap.

I cancelled SS once because I was getting bored and I wanted to try other boxes. I regretted it though because I missed having so many high-end skincare products to use. I hardly ever buy a full-size from there and always just rely on the samples month after month, ha! So I joined up again.

I found that this month there is a limited number of brands so they tried not to put the same into certain boxes like for example I already had pre-cleanse and a face toner as well as certain Alterna bamboo products.

I am quite happy with my box, 1 double so far which is pretty good (I have been subscribed more than a year).

    • Tinder's basically the best option out there other than social media which is usually iffy, and Lex is another good one, that's if you're gay at all.
    • I used Tinder some time ago, but I don't really like it these days. There are so many bad and fake profiles... I like using some other dating services. I am sure that you will find something interesting and really working for you, good luck with it
    • I'm having some backsliding, but still trying! I'm really seeing progress using my full size cleanser, toner and moisturizer. I decided to change my routine. I have been experiencing for a while now some strange kind of boredom. When I'm not working, I really don't have fun any more. I don't get chores done either. I'll just get up, and the time just passes, and my room will be messy with a pile of laundry, and I don't get it done, and it makes me feel bad. I can't focus on reading a book or watching a show or movie. I always feel my weekend is a waste. I'm not having fun when I'm lazy like this either; it feels awful.  I decided to change my routine and fight this state! I told HR I wanted to work on Saturday every week and have Thursday off every week, which makes both my work weeks and time off shorter periods. I'm hoping it will be easier to make the most of time off when it is one day instead of an entire weekend. And I might feel less tired when the work week is broken up. I also made a list of all I hope to do in my days off. I want to have my laundry done, cleaning done, write in journal, post on Makeup Talk [I do enjoy writing], watch a show or movie and read a book, and best of all use a face mask on the two days off!  I'm not using all my face masks at all. I got a flyer from Yves Rocher with some awesome new face masks and scrubs. I really want one, but not until I've used up all the masks I have now! The Thursday and Sunday off will be my special beauty days to use up products with extra relaxing beauty routines.  Last night I went out with a friend of mine and my brother to Family Dollar. While she was shopping, I looked in the beauty section. I enjoyed it. I saw some things I wanted, but did not get, because I don't need them. I saw: Aromatherapy diffuser set with a little cherub. Pretty makeup brushes. I already have a ton. No reason to wear makeup because I always go out with a face mask. I should make an effort to use eye makeup though. I need to care for myself better and put effort into myself.  Skin care set with cleanser, toner, and cream in one box, only five dollars. I think the cleanser had shea butter. I wanted to try it, but have tons of skin care going back to 2017 I need to get through!  After we took our friend to eat, we came out and had a nail in our tire and a flat. The roadside assistance man was really nice though. I got a Car Care credit card and an appointment to get it fixed today. I am backsliding with my debt snowball, but I'm not going to let it stop me. I'm just going to keep going and start over with whatever debt is smallest, being diligent with No Buy/Project Use It Up.  I have been more productive this morning, started laundry and cleaning and wrote in my journal. The more I try the better it will get! Then maybe I won't order takeout so much. I'm kind of looking forward to going to the auto shop, because it will be something to accomplish, and then I'll go to lunch with my brother (less expensive than getting Door Dash).  The first mask I will be using up is my smallest sample, Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment. I have many mini masks from Ipsy, etc. and I believe two full size masks and two full size scrubs, and a box of sheet masks.
