Today I received my first Sample Society Box. Sample Society is a monthly subscription service where each month, beauty experts handpick five deluxe-sized samples from the world's best luxury brands, then deliver them right to your doorstep. The monthly cost of the box is $15 (about $16.33 with taxes). Visit Sample Society and if you would like to subscribe, please use referral code YXSM3247.


The first item is the Borghese Gel Delicato Makeup Remover - This is a gentle, oil-free formula suitable for all skin-types. The full size bottle is 8.4 oz and cost $30.50. I received a .5 oz sample, equivalent to $1.82.

The second item is the Hanskin Hydro Sheet Mask - You can get smooth, supple skin in as little as 10 minutes. This moisturizing mask features seaweed extract and hyaluronic acid to replenish your complexion. The cost is $18 for 5 mask. I received 1 mask which is worth $3.60.

The third item is Exude Lipstick Gloss in Scarlet Red - With this sumptuous full-size lipstick, you'll make an unforgettable statement before utter a word. The cost of the Lipstick Gloss is $29. I like the color. I think it goes nicely with my complexion. Below you can see a swatch of the lipstick gloss.

The next item is the Caudalie Premier CRU - Revive your skin while you sleep with Caudalie's coveted Cru - perfect for nighttime wear. The cost of a 1.7 oz bottle is $150. The sample is .06 oz which has an approximate value of $5.29.

The last item is a Bonus Sample, the Cotz Face Natural Skin SPF 40 - Prep for sunny season with our new favorite mineral sunscreen, which blends ultra-smooth for a matte finish. A 42.5g bottle costs $20. I received 3g which is worth $1.41.

The overall value of the box is $44.12 which is $27.79 more than what I paid for. I like the items in the box even though I would have preferred for the sample size to be a bit bigger. My favorite item is the lipstick gloss.
