Julep Nail Polish in Steph – Value $14
When I first saw this nail polish I assumed it would be a sheer top coat with a hint of shimmer and sparkle. But! It’s full coverage in two coats:
I love this shade! It has a hint of shimmer, and this is a nice snow-white color for winter!
Jane Iredale Smooth Affair Facial Primer and Brightener – 7 ml Value $6.75
I’ve sampled this primer before and it works well! My skin feels smoother and ready for makeup. I can’t say I notice any special difference between this and other primers, so I likely wouldn’t buy this in full-size, but I’ll use every drop of this sample.
Ahava Time to Clear Purifying Mud Mask – .68 oz Value $4.90
This is a 2-minute mask! (Yay for quick beauty treatments!) Most mud masks leave my skin feeling really clean, but this one also left my skin feeling super soft – I definitely recommend it.
Marvis Cinnamon Mint Toothpaste – 10 ml Value $2.40
Mini toothpaste is something I’m always happy to get in subscription boxes for travel. And this one is extra fancy and cinnamony!
PHYTO Express Conditioner – 50 ml Value $8.70
This conditioner is designed for color-treated hair, and it’s also free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates. I found it to be more moisturizing than my regular conditioner, and it didn’t leave my hair feeling weighed down, either. I rarely splurge on expensive shampoo and conditioner, and I didn’t love this enough to justify buying the full-size version after the sample runs out, but it’s a nice treat!
Cindy Crawford Meaningful Beauty Skin Renewing Peel – 10 ml Value $8.50
This is a quick peel (you only leave it on for 5-10 minutes). It was super gentle on my skin, but I really couldn’t notice any difference in my skin after removing it, either.
Juice Beauty Stem Cellular CC Cream in Natural Glow – 5 ml Value $3.90
This sample is the lightest shade. Here are all the shades available:
I’ve sampled this before, and I love that the formula is natural and organic. (It also has that classic Juice Beauty green apple scent!) Personally, I prefer a full coverage CC cream, but if you are looking for a minimal makeup look, this is a great product. Here it is swatched:
It is a good match for my skin tone, so it’s barely there in the picture.
Bliss Triple Oxygen Ex-Glow-Sion – 5 ml Value $6.40
This cream is super moisturizing, and it gave my skin a matte finish too!
MD SolarSciences Daily Anti-Aging Moisturizer – .25 oz Value $12.50
This sunscreen is lightweight and absorbs quickly (plus it is free of parabens, sulfates and phthalates.) My only complaint is that this sample is pretty tiny!
Proraso After Shave Balm – 15 ml Value $2.40
I was a little surprised to see a men’s grooming product in this box, but there are so many samples in this box, I really can’t complain! This isn’t a product we’ll use, but it will be donated!
La Roche-Posay Anti-Ageing Concentrate – 5ml Value $9.50
This Anti-Aging concentrate is lightweight, absorbs almost immediately, and felt great on my skin. (It’s made with retinol and designed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.)
Obliphica Seaberry Hair Serum – 15 ml Value $8.75
This hair serum is for medium to coarse hair – which works well for me. The scent is similar to the Beauty Protector line (another plus), and it was lightweight and left my hair softer and shinier!
Agave Oil Treatment – 4 ml Value $1.60
This hair oil is paraben, sulfate, and phthalate free. And! It has a lovely coconut/tropical scent!
Skin & Co. Roma Eye Concentrate – 5 ml Value $22
This is a great sized sample! (1/3 the size of the full-size version.) This is another lightweight lotion that absorbs quickly. It has a powdery scent (not my favorite, but not bothersome) and was gentle on my skin.
NuFACE Prep-N-Glow Cloth – Value $1
This is not a typical makeup remover cloth! One side is for cleansing and the other side has micro-dots for exfoliating. It did an excellent job of removing my makeup, and it left my skin hydrated, too.
Vichy Aqualia Thermal Mineral Water Gel – 1.5 ml Value $.90
And this box also included several cologne and perfume samples:
Verdict: This box has a value of about $114. (That’s not counting any value for the perfume samples.) I think that’s a fantastic value for a $19.99 – and even more amazing considering you get $19.99 back in credit to spend on anything in this Beauty Category.
