Sample Society Box Reviews - April 2013 - Beauty Subscriptions

I am thrilled with April’s Sample Society box! Usually I prefer they include makeup in the boxes, but I’m still very happy with no makeup in this box.

Hanskin Hydro Sheet Mask – Value $4

Up until now I’ve only used clay/mud masks, but I’m going to give this one a try – I’ve read reviews that it’s super hydrating!
Verdict: I paid $15 for this box and received over $50 worth of product – this is a great box! I’m most excited to try the B. Kamins Moisturizer and very curious about the Hydro Sheet Mask! What did you get in your Sample Society box?

  1. I just thought I’d let you know that Sample Society does not offer a free subscription to Allure anymore, at least to new subscribers anyway.

  2. I received the same items, with exception of the hand creme – I had Reem Acra Eau de Parfum instead (kinda sad, I don’t like the smell at all and see limited value in parfume samples.

    The Hydro sheet mask was a blast – definitely cold and slimy, I put a hot towel over top to compensate… if I could re-do, I’d warm the packet in hot water before opening. Once on, it was a little tingly, but super hydrating.

  3. I received a SUPER AQUA MASK by MISSHA SKIN RENEWAL with snail in it, however, I received it in a Wantable Box. It has been used for years in Japan and is supposed to provide extensive moisture and the snail assists in skin renewal. I was waiting until I saw a post on it because I was curious how it felt. The description to me sounds cold and slimy. Have you had an oppportunity to try it yet?

  4. Wow ours our so different(I received “kit F”). Mine included the Cotz and Hanskin, but I received a Borghese lipgloss (sample size), Alterna Texture Mist sample, and Eve Lom cleanser sample packet and muslin cloth. Apparently I should have gotten the hair accessories too. those are missing from my box though.

    • I’m Kit F too. I was kind of hoping that there would be at least ONE full size product, but SS may be counting the hair accessories are full size.
