Sample Society | February 2014


I’m starting to think my blog is quickly morphing into a beauty box review site. Cuz we’re back at it again with yet another box, and we ain’t even halfway done. Someone needs to give me a utility bill to pay or something, cuz otherwise I’m about 2.5 seconds away from finding another box to subscribe to.

Don’t tell my husband I just said that. Cuz he’ll no doubt find me a utility bill.

Received my Sample Society box the other day and lookie what I got:


I’m kinda likin’ the box this month. Despite the fact I got three hair dealies, that is. I don’t prefer hair stuff, because there’s just so much stuff I won’t ever use. Like hairspray, root lifter or sea salt spray. I basically wash, dry, flatiron, the end. I spend so much time on makeup in the morning, I can’t deal with a whole hair ritual too.

I’m incredibly lazy. Did I mention that?

However, I’m alright with the Bamboo products they sent. Got two of them: volume spray and a strand thickener. Both of these products are used prior to blow drying, and apparently will give me oodles of poufy hair. Haven’t tested this theory, but I promise I’ll let you know.

The other hair product is a mask from Phyto. I can’t wait to try this. It claims to repair dry, damaged, weakened hair which is exactly what I need. My hair is so hideous when in its natural state. Hoping by using this product I will somehow be able to air dry without risking my prim and proper reputation. Cuz otherwise, I tend to lean towards mental patient escapee hair. Or maybe light socket exploring hair.

Next (non-hair) product is the mineral body lotion from Ahava. I got the pineapple peach one. Smells pretty nice, but not overwhelmingly so, which is a bit of a bummer cuz if you’re gonna smell like tropical fruit, you better bygod commit to it.

All my body lotions smells like tropical fruits, just so you know.

The consistency of this one is a little watery, but it absorbs pretty good so I guess its wateryness is a non issue. Not even sure why I brought it up then. I’d press backspace on that and delete it altogether but I’m really sleepy right now and can’t be bothered.

Moving on.

Last item is this serum from Murad. Do you see on the box where it says it reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in two hours? Well, I instantly became interested in that little tidbit. Then upon further inspection, I discovered that it won a Good Housekeeping award. And that it cost $78 for a 1-ounce bottle.

In other words, I may not have noticed if my wrinkles went away after two hours, but it’s an award winner and expensive and therefore all claims are immediately justified.

I’m an asshole.

Im sorry. I’m easily persuaded. What else can I say for myself? I just wanna believe so bad that there is a miracle product out there that will undeniably replace my old face for a new one in a mere two hours. Can I please just have my daydreams?

One thing I can say about it that I know is 100% true is that the texture is quite lovely. My face is very soft right now. Just did a wrinkle check however, and sad to report that they are still there. Ah well. Can’t have everything.

That’s it people. You’re free to go.
