Sample Society-February *spoilers*

Recommended Posts

If that's a pale purple gray,I'm excited lol The 3 masks make up for the perfume and I am happy there are 7 things all together. It's not a wow box but it will all be used so I guess it's okay.

Online reviews for the dry shampoo are horrible! It retails for about $7, people were saying that they could not brush the white residue from their hair and ended up having to wash it!

I love the Batiste dry shampoo, it's my go to. I have dark brown hair and haven't had a problem with white residue.

I love the pale purple gray too, if it were that color I would feel a whole lot better about my first box.

Where did you see the reviews? It has really good reviews on Ulta.

I love batiste dry shampoo. I have dark brown wavy/curly hair, and it is my go to. I never have trouble with the residue.

 

I'm excited for this box. It's nice that we're getting multiple masks, that purple/grey nail polish is gorgeous, and I go through a lot of dry shampoo. Fragrances are my least favorite sample, but we haven't gotten one in a while, so I'm not mad about it.

I'm happy with this box! I LOVE batiste and nugg face masks and would have ended up purchasing them anyway. I also think the nail polish is pretty and I actually really wanted to try the new Chloe perfume. I haven't tried my Strivectin from last month yet, but if it is a good product then I am happy to have more since it is so expensive.

This box is ok. I did go ahead and cancel for next month. I will wait until after spoilers to decide. I actually cancelled all of my subs except Glossy. I just have way too much stuff right now. I need a little break I think!

I'm super excited for this month! The only thing that I don't care about is the perfume, but I will totally use it. I Love nsil polish and that was an extra suprise bc I didn't think there would be another one this month.

This is actually my favorite dry shampoo, and I've tried just about everything. It's lightweight and I never see white flakes, unlike quite a few others that I've tried. I pick it up from Urban Outfitters when beauty boxes haven't provided enough dry shampoo - and yes, it's only $8. But I'd purchase it anyway, so if it's halfsize, it's worth $3 (1/5 the box) to me.

 

The perfume sample isn't, since I'm Rouge and I can get samples on any size order from Sephora if I so wished. BUT the masks more than make up for that.

 

I wouldn't say this box knocks it out of the park the way December did for me, but I'll look forward to it. I liked the Strivectin, love masks, and I have never tried Nails Inc - so yay, new brand!

 

BTW - just about every high end nail brand I've tried for the first time in beauty boxes, I've gone crazy for and bought like 5-10 colors within 30 days.. so if any high end nail companies read this, your strategy is working and my bank account is suffering! LOL

I love that we are getting 3 of the Nugg masks.  I can never find the deep cleansing one and I think that will be best on my face.  The hydrating one will be going on my dry, dry, dry, winter hands.

I want to try absolutely everything in this box. I am so excited to get it! 

  I am super happy that the box is going to have a polish. February's birthstone is amethyst so the color is appropriate. If they are sending random colors I will be happiest if it is some kind of pink, but this lavender is really the next best thing to pink.

My box is on the truck for delivery today, I can post some pic's later.

ETA: Got my box!

 

post-93138-0-86068400-1423517739_thumb.jpg

 

Ok so sizes:

 

Chloe Love Story, standard pump perfume sample: .04 oz  I'm one who doesn't mind perfume samples and I've seen this scent advertised a lot recently so I'm glad to try it. It's floral, but not sickening.  

 

Nugg masks: 3 of them in deep cleansing, hydrating and revitalizing .33 oz each.  I'm so excited to try these. I love masks and I think it's great they sent a 3 pack of each to try.

 

StriVectin: meh same as last month if you got it, .025 oz. Nothing special

 

Batiste Dry Shampoo: 1.6 oz, smells ok. I love dry shampoo and I haven't tried this brand yet so I'm glad to have it.

 

Nail Inc: It's in Princes palace (grayish purple) and its the only color/shade they show in the booklet.  So, it would seem it's the shade/color everyone is getting this month.  

 

Let us know if you get something different!

Happy about the nail polish color! Was really hoping to not get pink. Last February I got three different pink polishes from three differenct subs.

 

Looks like a good box to me!

Did anyone else get the email from SS saying that they were getting a $5 refund because the Strivectin wasn't in their box? I haven't gotten my box yet so I don't know if I will get it or not, but it looks like it was included...

Love the polish color!  And excited to try the face masks.  Do any of you think the shampoo/conditioner would work for those of us with long/thick hair?  My husband uses an all-in-one in the shower, but I never trusted it for my own hair.

I have long, thick hair and dry shampoo mostly just makes my hair smell better.  I'm glad I've tried it but it doesn't really replace a good washing.

My box has decided to take a crosscountry road trip.  It was in Maryland on Monday and now it's in California...I live in Virginia.  Whomp whomp.

 

I hate it when my sub boxes travel more than I do.
