Allure Sample Society {January}

 I received my Allure Sample Society box about two weeks ago. Things have been hectic over here, but I still wanted to share it with you. It was amazing this month! I think they may have messed up though because one of the products I received was not in the product booklet. No complaints here!
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: 

*StriVectin Intensive Illuminating Serum ($89 for 1oz, 0.25oz= $22.25)

*Philosophy Renewed Hope in a Jar ($47 for 2 oz, 0.25oz= $5.88)

*Revlon PhotoReady Eye Art Lid + Line + Lash in Cobalt Crystal (FULL SIZE $8.99)

*Zoya Nail Lacquer in Rayne (FULL SIZE $9)

*Erno Laszlo Sea Mud Deep Cleansing Bar ($45 for 5.3oz, app 0.5oz= $4.25) 

*Philip B Light-Weight Deep Conditioning Creme Rinse ($26 for 6oz, 0.5oz= $2.17) 


I LOVED this box. It isn't one of the higher value boxes I have had, particularly since I think the StriVectin was accidentally added to my box. However, I really liked the items. My favorites are definitely the Zoya and the Revlon eye art. I know some people get angry when they include "drug store brands", but this product is amazing. I am even planning on buying the two colors that I did not receive. I will add the soap to my travel bag and use it on vacation. I'm actually pretty excited to use the StriVectin too because it is supposed to even out your complexion. The only thing I am not sure about is the Philip B conditioner. I know that I have received a conditioning product from them in the past and I hated it. I will probably try it regardless. Overall, a great deal for my $15!
What subscription boxes do you subscribe to? What did you receive? Sample Society and Glossybox continue to be my favorites.
