Amazon Luxury Beauty Sample Box

Amazon Luxury Beauty Sample Box
Not much of a surprise that Amazon jumped on the beauty box trend with their Amazon Luxury Beauty Sample Box. This box was free with qualifying purchase or you can purchase for $8.99. This is not a subscription box, and it is limited availability.

I'm not going to post a full review because I haven't tried everything, but take a look below for the contents and some brief musings.
L'Occitane Almond Milk Concentrate, $1.43 - This might be one of my favorite body moisturizers. It smells amazing, and the scent lingers a long time.

Ahava Mineral Hand Cream, $3.68 - This thick cream had a nice fresh scent.

Vichy Idealia Life Serum, $1.93 - I've tried other products from Vichy, and overall, I've liked them.

Julep Nail Polish, $14.00 - This color is lighter than I would normally pick for myself, and I'm not a huge "pink" person. However, I didn't even know that Amazon now stocked Julep nail polish!

Sabon Shower Oil - Delicate Jasmine - This shower oil had a pleasant jasmine fragrance, and it basically worked as a shower gel with a light lather. It wasn't oily in the least bit, and it left my skin feeling soft.

Lierac Paris Mesolift Serum - This tangerine-colored serum had a light, sweet fragrance.

Shaveworks The Cool Fix Target Gel Lotion, $4.72 - This light gel had a kind of medicinal, aqua fragrance - that's the best way I can describe it anyhow! I applied it to my legs post-shave, and it had a mild cooling sensation. I passed it on to my husband for now.

Bliss Aloe Leaf + Peppermint Foot Patrol, $7.20 - This foot cream smells a bit like Vicks. My feet could definitely use the attention!

Juicy Couture Malibu, $1.44 - This fragrance was a nice blend of fruity and floral.

Catherine Malandrino Romance de Provence, $3.90 - A warm, spicy fragrance, this would probably be best for cooler weather.

Toppik Hair Fattener Advanced Thickening Serum, $6.95 - This is a clear serum with a slightly unpleasant fragrance.

La Roche Posay Broad Spectrum SPF 60 Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid, $1.32 - This was a very liquidy lotion with a mostly neutral, but slightly masculine fragrance. It seems to just be a sunscreen, so I also added a layer of moisturizer.

NUXE Merveillance Regenerating Night Cream - I've tried a couple of things from NUXE before and really liked them, so I have high hopes for this cream.

Marvis Classic Strong Mint Toothpaste, $1.38 - I've received this toothpaste before - in my June 2013 Birchbox. I still don't really think of toothpaste as a luxury beauty item. :-P

Calvin Klein Euphoria - This perfume has a classic, rich fragrance.

Finally, the only make-up product that was included in the box is:
Vincent Longo Trio Eyeshadow - Seduction, $30.00 - The color selection isn't my favorite, and I didn't think the color pay-off was very great. I used the pink as the shade under my eyebrow, the gray/taupe shade on my lid, and the burgundy in my crease. The colors blend easily, but I didn't find them to be especially long-lasting.

Total Value: >$77.95
 I didn't calculate the value of every single sample, but all in all, it is a fantastic value. This ended up being mostly skin care products, not beauty products like I was expecting. There wasn't really anything that I loved, so I'm not sure that I would repurchase an Amazon box like this. I guess it would depend on what spoilers they released. :)
