Amazon Daily Beauty Sample Box is is one of the sample boxes periodically available for Amazon Prime Members and is packed with beauty products. Simply purchase the box for $11.99 and one week after shipping you will receive a $11.99 credit on your account that can be used towards the purchase of select essentials.
This box is still available, but you can check out all the available sample boxes here. And if you don’t already, you can try Amazon’s Subscribe & Save – which I love! Easiest way in my book to get anything delivered.
All the beauty goodies in the box!
Yum! The first ingredient is aloe juice! These both include shea butter, coconut milk, and macadamia oil to infuse your hair with moisture and soften hair. I loved the scent of the shampoo – coconutty & tropical! But for some reason the conditioner didn’t have the same luxurious scent.
This free sample set is designed to be good for colored hair, restoring moisture and adding UV filters.
I honestly couldn’t tell you why there are 2 sets of foil packets of moisture-intense shampoo and conditioner. I think it’s an odd choice but at least you can compare them.
Crest 3D White Luxe Whitestrips Professional Effects ($0.99) I admit, I’m terrible at using a whole box of these, but I’ll do one occasionally because I get it in a box.
I was happy to get this – and then I don’t have to worry about the rest of the box!
Oral-B Glide Pro-Health Deep Clean Cool Mint Flavor Floss ($0.24) Yay floss! I love flat floss like this and its even micro-textured for an even better clean.
Aveeno Sheer Hydration Daily Moisturizing Lotion ($0.45) True to its promise, it absorbs quickly and leaves a matte feel. This lotion would be great anywhere chafing is an issue!
This cream makes up the bulk of value of the box – so if you’ve been wanting to try this Olay product (or already love it), this is your shot! It uses Hyaluronic Acid, Amino-Peptide Complex II and Niacinamide to hydrate and re-elasticize skin.
There’s about 1/3 the full size in this jar, and if you like using it, Amazon has some interesting combo packs so you can further try out the full line!
We’ll always use toothpaste! This one has an excellent mint flavor and whitens teeth.
CHRISTINA AGUILERA Glam X ($1.20)
This super-sweet perfume is all drugstore. Not a bad thing (there’s a reason why there are BILLIONS of dollars of drugstore scents sold) but it’s really sweet! This floral gourmand has base sandalwood and musky notes but the top notes of mandarin and orange blossom plus caramelized peach and star anise really shine. I find it amusing that all her perfumes are squarely targeted at the seductive feminine but they’re totally teen to me. I’ll totally wear it though!
This product is supposed to revive mature, dull skin in 4 weeks with LHA and peony. This thick emollient cream is definitely designed for papery dry skin and has a rosy tint to help combat that dull look while the active ingredients work to renew your skin. It smells like Mr. Bubbles (FOR REAL) and I feel actually like some old ladies could overdo this product – I put some on my summer-tanned skin and it’s pretty pink! It could definitely be the right product for a mature woman – but be sure to ask a younger friend for opinions! Also if this product intrigues you, be sure to check out the customer reviews at Amazon – they have full jar pics that show the tone very well!
Garnier SkinActive Moisture Bomb the Anti-Oxidant Super Moisturizer ($0.81) Moisture Bomb, huh? Welcome to the latest Aqua Bomb ripoff!
I happen to have some Belif Aqua Bomb on my desk, so I compared. The Garnier version is thicker, and it’s semi-heavily fragranced. This is a great drugstore item, but I’d buy the Belif every time (also my face tingled when I used the Garnier).
Well, this box had $13.19 in value – marginally over the cost of the box, but much of that is in foil (free) samples, and I can’t be the only person who said thank goodness there’s floss and toothpaste in here! I also enjoyed the perfume. Fortunately I’ll get my money back as a credit on one of these brands but this was a step in the wrong direction for the Prime sample boxes for sure.
