Beauty Bar Sample Society December 2012

Hello my lovlies, sorry I haven’t been regularly updating my site.  I have been busy with work, holiday stuff, birthdays, shopping, and of course pregnancy.  I got this December Sample Society box a week or two ago and I have been such a slacker with getting the post live.  
It was full of deluxe sized products this go round so I will just dive right in.

First thing up is the Vapour Organic Beauty Elixir Gloss in 302 Sultry.  I have worn it a couple times and I feel it has a rather natural look to it.  Nothing really sultry like the name implies but a nice gloss none-the-less.

The swatch below shows what it looks like.  More of a peachy nude really.  It is nice and feels moisturizing on the lips.  I have no complaints about the gloss but no praises either.

Philosophy was represented in the box with the Living Grace 3 in 1.  It is 1 fl oz in size and enough to sample the scent, but that is about it.  I will go through 1 oz in a couple of showers.  The scent is really nice though so I am definitely intrigued and want the full size.

Hanskin Perfect Super Magic BB Cream in the 10 ml size was also in the box.  Again, enough for a sample and not enough to last a long time.  

The color seems about right for me.  I am currently very light so this color will suit me perfectly.

You KNOW I love eye creams so this one really perked me up.  This is the Delany Beauty Reserve Grape Seed Rejuvenating Eye Creme.  It comes in a dropper bottle and is super easy to dispense.  It is a 1/3 of an oz or 10 ml size.  I think that this product is closer to a full size product and really will last a while because it only targets one small portion of my face.  The eye cream itself has a nice pearlescent look to it.  

Last but not least is the Murad Time Release Retinol Concentrate for Deep Wrinkles.  I am a fan of Murad but I am currently testing out a different wrinkle product so this one will sit on the back-burner for a bit.

I have been getting these boxes for quite some time now and some have been good but most have been a let down.  I decided after this box to cancel my subscription.  It costs me $15 to get a bunch of samples.  Samples are great but I don’t think that the price of the box is really represented in the products received.  I would rather take my $15 and buy a nice meal or a new beauty product or something for my soon to be baby.  I have a ton of these types of samples in my sample basket and I will likely never use them.  I tend to ship these type of samples out with swaps, giveaways etc.  So… goodbye Sample Society.  
Is there something that you recently found to be “not worth it?”  If so, let me know in the comments below.  Also if you enjoyed the products from the box let me know that in the comments too!

    This was my first box with Sample Society and I think it will also be my last. The only thing I received that I cared about was a hand cream (instead of the BB cream you got). Not impressed with this box for the price :/
    Do you have other boxes you prefer?
