June Beauty Bar Sample Society July 17, 2012

Today I bring you the June Beauty Bar Sample Society Box. This box is filled with premium goodies again, and that is sooo exciting to me that I can try things lots of times if I want – in order to decide if I want to purchase it in the future. Yes they are mostly still samples – but they are big enough that if I took a week or two vacation I could take them along and not run out until the last day!

I’m was pleased with the boxes contents at first glimps (even though I don’t like perfume samples) and happily began using the products.

So what was included in the box AND how did I like the products? (more…)


Oscar de la Renta Esprit d’Oscar Eau de Parfum Deluxe Rollar Ball March 24, 2012

Today I bring you the Oscar de la Renta Esprit d’Oscar Eau de Parfum Deluxe Rollar Ball from March’s Sample Society Box. Normal perfume samples seem to be about 0.05 oz in either a tiny atomizer or one of the ones with the cap you pull off and wipe against your skin.  Not Sample Society – they provide a wonderfully sized roller ball.  I really appreciate having a nice sized sample, especially of perfume since I tend to make the bottles explode when I have to pull the caps off.

So, what about the scent? It is a citrus and floral scent – to me it reminds me of Pure Poison, but a bit stronger in the acidic citrus part.  For me it is not a scent I like.

I had a friend over the day I had tested this and asked her – and she LOVED it.  The fragrance has happily found a new  home.

Sample Size: 0.1 oz
Full Size:  1.6 oz
Full Size Price: $76.00
Sample Value: $4.75

Would I buy it again? No
Will I finish the sample? No, buy my friend will!

Again, I really have to say “hats off” to beauty bar and their sample society – I hate perfume samples, but at least this one would have been useful had I liked the scent.
