I’ve had a chance to use and review all of the products from my March and decide on how much I liked them. So now it is time to do my box wrap up.

In case you don’t remember, here is a summary of the Awesomeness level:

Box Awesomeness Level Review (AL)

  • 5 points for an item that surpasses everything else I’ve tried and becomes my #1 choice for what role it fulfills
  • 4 points for an item that becomes added to my permanent collection of cosmetics and I will repurchase
  • 3 points for an item that joins my “I might buy this again” list
  • 2 points for an item I finished or will finish the entire sample of but in the end decided not to re-purchase
  • 1 point for an item that I tried and immediately threw out/gave away
  • 0 points if the item was a duplicate of something from a previous bag/box/kit that only scored a 1 in that box – meaning I knew enough to not even bother with trying it.
  • Don’t forget that I subtract 1/2 point for samples that can only be used 2 or fewer times.


Pur-lisse pur-Protect SPF Essential Daily Moisturizer

Sample Size 0.14 oz
Full Size 11.7 oz
Full Size Price $55.00
Sample Value $0.66

AL<- 1 The smell and the fact that it didn’t seem to moisturize put this in the trash after just a couple uses with half the sample remaining.


Murad Eye Lift Perfector

Sample Size 0.015 oz
Full Size 0.06 oz
Full Size Price $35.00
Sample Value $8.75

AL<- 1 The color and the cakiness really was off-putting for me.


DermStore $25 off a $50 purchase or more

Sample Value $25.00 (there is currently free shipping so I didn’t deduct anything for that)


3 Lab Perfect Cleansing Cream

Sample Size 3.4 oz
Full Size 3.4 oz
Full Size Price $40.00
Sample Value $40.00

AL<- 4 I use this daily now – love it, but it isn’t the best I’ve ever tried (Especially not for the price, but I still may get another)


Keracolor Color Enhancing Leave-In Treatment

Sample Size 0.17 oz
Full Size 5.5 oz
Full Size Price 29.95
Sample Value $0.95

AL<- I’m not rating this because I never actually tried it.


Exclusive My Glam Classic Crease Brush and Case
I think this brush sort of looks like some of the Crown Brush custom brushes, so based on their line I am giving a value
Sample Size Value $8.00

AL<- 4 I love this brush and it is part of my permanent collection. I use it nearly daily.


Awesomeness level? 1+1+4+4=10    10 /4= 2.5    This is pretty high I think, but the two 4s really pulled the score up. I also didn’t rate the Keracolor or the coupon so only 4/6 items were evaluated.

Bag Value $50.36 without including the Brush since I am just estimating that value, and without the coupon code because it isn’t something you can use without spending money. I think overall the value was really there and I really enjoyed testing most of these products.
