Allure Sample Society {September}

 I officially cancelled my Ipsy subscription last month. So, from here on out I will only be sharing the best with you: Glossybox and Sample Society.
Here is what you need to know about Sample Society (Please use code TFL99 if you sign up):
*$15 a month (+ tax for some states)
*Creation of Allure and Beauty Bar. Allure's Beauty Director is now selecting the products! 
*5 deluxe-sized samples
*$10 gift code to redeem on ANY $50 purchase
*Each box comes with an insert describing each product, why Allure loves it, the full size price and even tips on how to use it.

Here is what I received this month: 

The products were almost too big for the box!

 *Tarte Brazilliance Maracuja Self Tanning Face Towelettes (3 Towelettes= $9): I'm NOT a fan of self tanner. What if you mess it up? Then you have to walk around orange for Thanks. Plus, I would look funny with a tan face and pale body. 

*Givenchy Fragrance Dahlia Divin Fragrance Sample (1ml = arv $2.16): This perfume is a little strong, but I like it. It has some nice sweet notes in it. It also seems like it lingers on my skin for a decent amount of time.

*Alterna Caviar Repair RX Re-Texturizing Protein Cream (40ml = arv $9.33): This is the pretty purple bottle that you can't really see in the pictures because it is so shiny. I LOVE Alterna. I haven't tried this Alterna product yet, so I am really excited to receive it.

 *Restorsea Revitalizing Eye Cream (FULL SIZE! $85): An $85 eye cream? Yes, please. I have used this eye cream already and I really like it. It goes on easily and has a cooling effect. It also comes with a cute little plastic spatula to get all of the product out of the container. 

 *LORAC POREfection Mattifying Face Primer (5ml = arv $3.20): I am excited to try this. I have been using primer a lot more recently. This primer is supposed to keep your face oil free all day and that is an issue that I have. I do wish the sample size was a little bigger, but for everything else I received...I definitely can't complain.

Total Value: $108.69

Wow! Definitely worth my $15 and then some. Everything in this box excited me except for the self-tanning sheets. Another outstanding month for Allure Sample Society. I hope they keep this up.

*Disclaimer: I am a paying member of Allure Sample Society. I share my boxes and my own honest opinion for the benefit of my readers.

I used to have a subscription box addiction - literally getting a box almost everyday. I cancelled all of them and miss getting surprises in the mail. This one sounds great!!

I miss my subscription boxes. This looks like a really great one. Lots of great items.

I would love to see what you think of the Lorac primer. I love their stuff!
