Everyone is really into beauty box subscriptions, but I never see anything in the boxes that I want to try. Where’s the box with La Mer and pre-fall colors from Chanel? I’ve decided to spend $15 each month and test my couponing skills to order products online that I would like by combining promo codes, sales, and gift with purchases. Here’s what I got this month (value is based on sample weight and full size weight + price):
PURCHASE: Life NK Jumpstart Sugar Scrub
Thanks to MyBeautyShoppingList!
Three deluxe samples with any Space NK purchase
I’ve been hearing a lot about this London apothecary, and wanted to sample some of their products. Also, I wanted a sugar scrub. I’ll update a list of these once I receive them in the mail.
Choice of 4 samples with any cosmetics or fragrance purchase
AERIN Rose Lip Conditioner 0.1 oz value $8.24, full size 0.34 oz for $28
I’m excited to try this because it is said to be AERIN’s best product. AERIN is Aerin Lauder of Estee Lauder’s label.
Shiseido White Lucent Intensive Spot Targeting Serum & Urban Environment UV Protection Cream, packettes
Chloé classic Eau de Parfum, vial on card value $1.85, full size 1.7 oz $105
Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau de Toilette, vial on card value $0.81, full size 3.4 $92
PURCHASE: Aveda ‘shampure™’ Shampoo
Gift w/ Purchase Aveda Botanical Hydrating Lotion 0.24 oz value $1.58, full size 5 oz $33
La Mer ‘The Lifting Contour’ Serum Sample 0.1 oz value $29, full size 1 oz $290
I have not yet tried La Mer because I always felt like it is something I would get when I am older. I am interested in the scent, texture, and compatibility with my skin.
Tom Ford Lip Color Sample in Casablanca 0.03 oz value $12, full size 0.12 oz $48
I love trying all lipsticks, glosses, balms, etc.! I also, love tiny versions of things, so cute!
Dolce&Gabbana Beauty ‘Dolce’ Eau de Parfum Spray Sample 0.06 oz value $3.38, full size 1.6 oz $90
I’m a sucker for packaging and I love the full size’s bottle. So I’m curious to see if I like the scent.
I feel like this was a very good value because I will actually get to try things that I might buy. I am a new mom, and I feel like everything about my skin has changed. I used to have oily skin, now it is dry. I’m on the hunt for moisturizing products, and little beauty treats to help me feel pretty while I’m loosing my baby weight. I wound up spending $12.50 total, so maybe I’ll put the extra $2.50 toward next month!
