Beauty Bar - Sample Society with Allure

Thursday, June 7, 2012

So yesterday i received my FIRST Beauty Bar Sample Society with Allure box!  I was particularly excited about this one because I'd read good reviews about it.  It arrived beautifully packaged in a very chic black box sporting the Beauty Bar Sample Society logo.  The inside was clad in fancy silver tissue paper adorned with a slight sheen making this box look and feel extremely luxurious.  I knew immediately if the samples were anything like the packaging, i was in for some really great stuff!  After peeking through the tissue paper, you will find a brochure complete with everything you need to know about each item in your box.  It also includes a $15 coupon code to use on purchases of $50 or more at  The first item that caught my eye was the BAMBOO Style Boho Waves Tousled Texture Mist.  This item is perfect for beach season!  I'd never tried this particular product, however, i have tried and loved other BAMBOO products.  The next product is an eye cream by Caudalie.  I have to admit, this is the first Caudalie product i have ever tried.  I like the way it feels and will use it all until it's gone!  I love eye creams and use them everyday!  The next product is a beautiful fragrance called 'Live in Love' by Oscar De La Renta.  It's very light and floral making this a perfect fragrance for the warm weather ahead!  I'm particularly excited to have received the 'Just Kissed Lip Plumper' by Jane Iredale.  I've tried similar products in the past and was not a fan of the way they made my lips feel.  The color 'Tokyo' is light and flattering.  Now lets talk about how it feels... you will notice immediately a very cooling sensation on your lips.  Almost as though you've just been kissed by a peppermint candy! It's kind of an interesting feeling, one i don't actually mind this time of year.   I'm invisioning that on a hot summer day, it'll be kind of nice knowing at least my lips will be keeping cool right?  Lastly is a Murad clarifying cleanser that caters to acne issues.  Thankfully i do not have this problem, though i do get my occasional breakout.  When that happens, I'll be armed with my Murad clarifying cleanser so be afraid acne... be very afraid!

Well, that concludes this box.  Hope you liked my review.  I paired this review with a video so feel free to click below and see for yourself.  I'd love to know your thoughts on this box.  What are some of your favorite monthly delivery boxes?
