Time to get onto it!
5 items, minus the toe separator which ended up in my nail box straight away. $25 including delivery per month for sample products, most of which can be either bought from the website, or you are given discount codes for the suppliers.
First up: Lash Cards. Sounds like an epic idea! Slip it over your eyelid and mascara away without the mess and pain of getting it on your perfectly blended shadow.
Is the text meant to be backwards?
Smaller curve and large curve for most, if not all, eye sizes.
Lash Card: $7.99 for 10 double sided shields. Get them from www.samplebar.co.nz.
Next: Elf Bronzer. I love Elf products.
Mmmm. Powdery goodness.
I like the subtle shimmer that bronzers offer. I have olive toned skin, so this was close enough to my original skintone that it didn't look like I had layered on the makeup.
Elf Bronzer: $4.99 for a full size compact, and we got a discount code for 10% off till 17th march!
3rd up: Tooth Spa natural toothpaste. This stuff reminds me of orange sherbet lollies from my childhood. Tastes pretty nice too, once you get past the baking soda.
It looks a little separated, but thats because it has no nasties to make it emulsified. Still works well though.
Tooth Spa: $15 for a full size (70g). The sample we got was 50ml, and worth around $10.70. Perfect for the organic naturalist in your life. Get it from www.samplebar.co.nz
Next: Shiseido Night Recharge. Honestly, this stuff seems a little "old lady" to me, but you never know, it might be the thing I need as I near the dreaded 30's.
Such a tiny bottle!! So cute!
Haven't used it, but I might start if I feel I need a pick-me-up.
Shiseido Night Moisture Recharge: $85 for a full size (50ml). Our sample was 10ml, so about $17.
Get it from your local department store (or wherever shiseido is sold).
Last up: Booty Parlor's Flirty Little Secret. This stuff is meant to make you firm, shimmery, smell like a tropical paradise and attract every male within a 20 foot radius (not really, but it'll get you a lot of attention!). I'm waiting till my Boy comes over to try it out. No point in wearing it out if I'm not going to appreciate the attention.
Kinda wish it came in a tube or something resealable.
Booty Parlor's Flirty Little Secret Firming Cream with Pheromones: $67.99 for a full 135ml. Our sample was 5ml, so about $2.50. Get it from www.samplebar.co.nz
Bonus: We got one little pink toe separator. Worth $3.99 for two, so $2 for 1. Get it from www.samplebar.co.nz
Total for this box was around $45 retail. Not bad. I'm loving that we have a box sample company. The states have so many from so many places. We will catch up!
The ladies at Samplebar like to see how we can up-cycle our boxes. Mine was just big enough to hold all my BundleMonster nail art wheels.
All in all, can't wait till next months box!
