Sample Society March 2014

Recommended Posts

Erika- It's mostly skincare samples & some hair/nail stuff, rarely makeup.  You get deluxe size samples (and occasionally full size) of high end products.  So if  you are into that stuff then yes it's worth it.  Also, you get a $15 off any brand in your box coupon every month & they have good customer service.

Of course, this month I would have to be the one getting Kit A. I like the Bliss hand cream but really wanted the Jane Iredale!

any updates regarding kit H? The SR refused to reveal the "top secret!!" :D

 

A bit tired of hair products in such abundance. I have already received the hair accessories and most of the advertised hair products. Hopefully no dupes for me this month.

Kit "I" as well - first box since resubbing.  I wonder is "I" is for Intro box....if so and it's like the last one, I'll be unsubbing again.  I never did make it to a second box, but kept reading good reviews so decided to try again.

I really hope it's a good one! I would call and find out like others have been doing but I have really intense phone anxiety :icon_neut Even if it's terrible, I usually give a subscription 2-3 months before I make a decision. I'm just hoping I start off my first box with them on a positive note!

Someone call about Kit I and I will shower you with virtual hugs and appreciation. I have very intense phone anxiety when talking to strangers and usually beg my fiance to do it for me. I don't think he'll understand my need for spoilers, enough to call this time though lol ;)

- Alterna Cream (he didn't say anything beyond that.  I hope it's not the same one I got last month.)
- Jane Iredale self tanner
- Jane Tran Hair accessories
- MD Solar Science Evening Repair Serum
- Suki Foaming Cleanser

 

:icon_neut Sample Society has officially worn out its welcome with me for now. This is not bad, but I bet all the boxes have the hair accessory and self tanner and hair creams, because of 'themes' or something. Bad timing for me to do 2 subs. I'll search TJMaxx for my $7 Butter Londons I guess heh.

 

 

ETA: Wow! I cancelled one on March 3rd and they actually are refunding and not sending crazy Box G. That is pretty cool and clearly the customer service is excellent (a rep explained this to me). So I will be back.. at a time when I believe they won't send me  self tanner !

I'm a newbie here, but I always come here to find out my kit contents before.  I think this might be the first month I really dislike a box.  I'm getting Kit E, and unless one of the items is amazing and life changing, it will be the first month I will be unhappy.  I'm excited about the Jane Tran stuff that everyone is getting.

I hate talking on the phone and I feel like I am being a pain by calling to ask these kinds of things, but I can tell you my last "intro" box conatins:  ipkn BB cream (the same one recently sent out by ipsy people complained about), a tiny sample of alterna dry shampoo (dont use), a tiny jane iredale lash conditioner (did nothing for me), a small tube of hope in a jar night (got hives) and the only thing I loved which was the Dermologica Daily Microexfoliant, which I guess you can say technically was alone worth the price of the box.  It was my love for that one item that made me decide to try again, along with some other decent reviews.

 

With that being said, there isn't too much on the lists I've seen so far I'd be super excited about except maybe the Oscar Blandi and I have used my Jane Tran pins from a past PopSugar Box.

I have kit E and I am super excited if the spoiler above is true because I think one of the items is http://www.beautybar.com/p/b-kamins-vegetable-cleanser-345818.  I like the brand and it seems like it could be perfect for my super sensitive skin--it also has great ratings online!  The sample they sent out before was two ounces and worth about $12 alone!

    • While  the summers are great for outdoor activities, it does take toll on your skin. The burning sun, humidity and pollution not only wipes off your natural glow but also makes your skin rough and unclear. Therefore, it's important to care for your skin to keep it glowing. Here are some skincare tips to follow this summer season: Exfoliate: It's important to exfoliate to your skin to remove the dead skin cells, grim and dirt, especially in the summers. Do this at lease 2-3 a times a week to get good skin.     Make Sunscreen Your BFF: They say, "Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer". The same applies to Sunscreen - Make it your BFF even if you don't like it. Keep in mind, you cannot have good skin if you don't use sunscreen, especially in the summers. So, invest in a good one and ensure application every 2-3 hours.   Drink Lots of Water: This is one of the most important skincare tips to follow during summers. A minimum of 2.5 or 3 liters of water is what you will need to stay hydrated and fresh, which in turn, will also benefit in your skin.   Eat Healthy: It's advisable to eat healthy during summers. Add a lot fruits and green vegetables  to your diet. Also, include fresh juices that will keep your hydrated all day long. So, now you know these skincare tips, ensure you put them to use and reap its benefits. 
    • I have a question for make up artists. I am a makeup artist working a gig with a photographer for a shoot that’s going to be doing 20 min headshots all day long. I think we have 10 people signed up for one day so far starting at 11am. I’m currently negotiating my fee and am asking $50 a person/ headshot for the day.  I don’t want to underrate myself ( I usually charge a flat fee for one 2-3 hour headshot session) , but I feel this fee is fair given it’s my makeup supplies, time and artistry, and I will be there all day.   Any thoughts or feedback about this and if you’ve had similar jobs that designated a specific fee given the high volume of faces I’ll be doing for this shoot.
    • I want to share with you all a product that has given me incredible results. It is the LED Light mask, each color helps to improve some aspect of the skin, led light therapy is used in spas, saloons... the fact is that I bought it at biomasktherapy.com I got it, I took a picture before using it and after two weeks I noticed some incredible changes, it has improved the acne, spots, wrinkles, it has left the skin clearer and especially I had a big change around my eyes area, is the change that has surprised me most, love it. I use the mask everyday for 30 minutes. I am sharing the photo of before/after two weeks results of use :) What's your experience with LED light therapy? 
    • Well, choosing a right hair straighter is very important. If you go for the choice of a wrong one it may result in damaging your hair in long ru. If asked from me I prefer to use Phillips straightener. Its a good and reputed brand . Also, the quality of product is really good.  Also, you must care about your hair before applying rod or an iron to it. For that you need to take help of hair protecting serums to use before ironing hair. That will prevent your hair from damage.
    • Bollywood’s superstar, Sonam Kapoor is an International fashion icon, adored for her style. Be it the red carpet, airport looks, public appearances, etc. she always dressed on point, giving us major fashion goals. Below are some styling tips given by the fashionista herself. 1.      Add A Pop of Colour: Do you own a lot of monochromes and greys? If yes, it’s time to add some bright colours to your wardrobe. Include some reds, blues, yellows and pinks and own it like a boss!   2.      Invest in Statement Pieces: Sonam Kapoor firmly believes in investing in statement pieces such as large necklaces, sequined purses, brooches or even cocktail rings. Most of these come within the budget and look absolutely stunning.   3.      Indian is NOT Boring: If you prefer donning Indian clothes, don’t think it’s boring. You could always pair your sarees or salwar suits with attractive accessories such as bling jhumkas or a statement clutch.   4.      Experiment with Styles: Never stop experimenting. A change in your looks every now and then is a good thing. A new hairstyle, a different saree drape, etc. are some styles you should try out.   5.      Let Your Eyes Do the Talking: Sonam Kapoor loves eye make-up. Whether it’s just a kajal with a lip gloss or shimmering eye shadow or even some dramatic eye make-up, she neve shies away from experimenting with her looks that steal the show.
