Sample Society May Box

This weather has been incredible here in Northeast Ohio, and it's about damn time!  Spring really feels here and in perfect timing I received May's Sample Society box with some summer prep essentials.  As always, Sample Society has yet to disappoint me, and this month is no exception!

Lips- Check

This box has it all! Take a look.....
Jane Iredale- Kissed Lip & Cheek Stain
                   in Forever Pink.  Full size RV-$25

Yu-Be-Moisturizing Skin Cream
Full size RV- $24.85

Dr.Brandt- Flexitone BB Cream
SPF-30 Full size RV- $39.00

Alterna Bamboo-Shine Luminous Shine Mist
Full size RV-$24.00

Kate Somerville360- Tanning towelettes
Full size RV- $48.00

The lip/cheek stain is a gorgeous sheer pink, perfect for a natural summer look.  Im super excited to try the tanning towelettes because Kate Somerville products that I've tried in the past were amazing.  There are currently only 2 self tanners that I like, and I've tried a lot so I hope this will be a good one as well.  

Im starting a little Alterna mini's collection over here.  I've been using their Dry Oil mist a lot lately and this should be nice to try as well.  Promises a "glossy, mirror-like finish". Oh La La.  

Im not too big on BB creams because they don't really give me the coverage I like, but I will give it a try.  From the swatch I did on my hand it starts out dark brown then completely disappears when you rub it in. Can't wait to see what it looks like on my skin.

Have you tried any of these? I'd love to hear your thoughts and experiences. Thanks for reading! Can't wait to see what June brings!


  1. I've never heard of this box! How much is it because it looks amazing! xoxo

  2. I love the box. Where do you sign up and get it? And how often do you get a box?
    Have you heard of birtchbox? It seems to kind of be the same. It is a box that comes once a month, cost $15 each month. It is designed to have samples of items that are for your skin type, color, hair type, color and also that would be within your budget. They also ask if you like organic or if you are wanting quick easy things.

  3. hello great box of stuff!
