I’ve had a chance to use and review all of the products from my April kit 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.

Sample Size: 1 razor with brush and comb
Full Size: 1 razor with brush and comb
Full Size Price:  $10.00
Sample Value: $10.00

AL<-4  If this one wears out I will buy another – not necessarily because of the razor, as I said in its review I prefer tiny scissors, but because it is nice and convenient and reasonably priced.

Awesomeness Level : 2+3+2+3+2+4=16   16/6=2.6.  The value of this sample kit is $50.41

While this kit was not my highest ever rated, it was nice and I got a chance to try some products that others have raved about.  Because of their raving I may have gone and bought the full size. In each case I am glad I didn’t because this saved me a lot of money.
