The box comes with a mini-mag detailing each item and why Allure editors decided to include it in the box.
Benefit Roller Lash – .1 oz Value $8
I’ve already sampled this new mascara from Benefit and I love it! I’m able to build a lot of volume and length without any clumping on the lashes.
Oscar Blandi Pronto Texture & Volume Spray – 1.5 oz Value $9
Sample Society actually sent this exact product a year ago in the March 2014 box. This one is .5 oz larger though. It does a great job at adding volume, so I’m happy to have another one!
CARGO Essential Lip Gloss in Prague – FULL SIZE! Value $16
This lipgloss is pretty pigmented – it adds a good amount of color and shine. It is a tad sticky, but not bothersome, and I like the color.
Malin + Goetz Mojito Lip Balm – .20 oz Value $6.85
Juice Beauty Green Apple Age Defy Moisturizer – .5 oz (Travel Size) Value $18
I’ve received this lip balm in a few different subscription boxes over the years– and I’m always happy to have more. (This .20 oz version is actually preferable for me compared to the full-size version since this one comes with the right kind of lip balm applicator tip).
And this Juice Beauty moisturizer is another item that has been in a few subscription boxes. I love the Juice Beauty brand, and I think this is a great lightweight moisturizer, so I’m good with getting more.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $58 – amazing for the $15 a month cost! This is one of the best Sample Society boxes I’ve received, and I love the value, the brands included, and the sizes of the items. A lot of these items are repeats for me, so this isn’t a discover-new-brands box for me, but I like all the items, so it is a valuable box.
