This is the November edition of the Sample Society Beauty Box. The box is $15.90 for a monthly subscription, and this months box has one of my favorite items I've ever gotten in a beauty box.
The Annick Goutal Eau D'Hadrien Eau De Toilette is one of the few perfume samples I've received in a beauty subscription box. I'm terrible at describing smells, but this smells very pretty, and very strong, and more grown up than my usual perfumes. It doesn't come with a spray top, so I worry that when I try to apply it it will go everywhere. I think that this will be a good change for me when it comes to perfumes, and I'm looking forward to getting more perfumes in future boxes. Hopefully with spray tops.
The Murad Pore & Liner Minimizing Hydrator is supposed to make those little lines less visible, while making your skin moisturized and reducing spots. It's a very tall order for one moisturizer. Usually I just look for a moisturizer to moisturize my face and make it plump and happy, so I'm not sold on the pore minimizer line filler aspect, but it's always worth a try.
The Jane Iredale Lip Drink Lip Balm is super tiny and smells like lemons. When I first opened the tube it was stuck on the cap, which is one of my huge pet peeves about lip balms. I don't like to have to push down the product because it won't screw back down. Otherwise though I think this is a great product to put into a handbag, or pop on before you put on lipstick. The lemony smell is also a nice change from the beeswax and vanilla balms I've been using lately.
The Borghese Spelndore Brightening Makeup is like a cross between a liquid highlighter and a primer. It can either be used to accentuate your features as a highlighter, or as a wash underneath your concealer/foundation to perk up the skin. It has a shimmer to it, and a very faint pink hue. I'm not completely sold on the product, and I am definitely not sold on the packaging, but with winter fast approaching I know my face will need a little pick me up, so my opinions may change.
Last but not least, my favorite item I have ever received in a beauty subscription box is the Illume Balsam and Cedar Metallic Tin Candle. It smells like a pine tree and winter and I love it so much. I don't even want to burn it, I just want to keep it in my purse and smell it like a crazy person.
I wasn't super impressed with all of the products in the box, but I am happy I am still subscribed. I keep getting products I would never think to buy for myself, but end up loving.
