Sample Society June

This month I did not really care for my Sample Society box.  In fact, I traded the entire thing away.  I am hoping that I like next month's much better because this subscription may be on the chopping block for me.  It is not a bad box, but they keep progressively being things I do not like more and more.  At $15 per box, this is just not the service for me.  I would much rather get a 3rd Birchbox ;)  You may think it is an excellent box, though, so here is what I got.

The Box

The Insert

Borghese Body Creme
I love the Borghese brand, but I am not big on body cremes unless they are very light and have a scent that I love.  I knew this product would trade well, though because several people love it.

Eye Never Eye Creme
This may be an excellent eye cream, but I have SO much at the moment that again, I didn't think twice about trading.  Also, I received a 3 piece sample set from Glossybox this month as well (I had a product leak in my Glossybox, so they are sending me another.  I will write a review as soon as it comes in).

Jouer Luminating Moisture Tint
As I mentioned in a previous Birchbox post, these tints are getting old.  I have received it in several boxes and even have some samples that were sent to me directly from the company just for asking.  There are several products that I like from Jouer, but this is not one of them.  The good thing about this one is it is about twice the size of those in my other boxes.

Sisley Hydration Intense Anti-Age Cream
Are you starting to notice a trend in the products from Sample Society?  They are mostly skincare products and I have certain products that I typically use.  I would much rather prefer makeup samples.  So again, this is not a bad sample, just not what I am looking for.

Vincent Longo Duo Lip Pencil in Sangria and White Glimmer
This would normally be a product that is right up my alley, but there are two things that keep me from liking it.  First, it is not an automatic pencil and I hate messing with sharpeners.  Also, did you notice that one of the colors is white?  For your LIPS!!!!  I would use this one my eyes, but not my lips.  I am sure it could be used on your eyes, but no thanks.

So once again, not a horrible box, but definitely not for me.
