My March Beauty Army Kit – First impressions March 12, 2012

Saturday, my lovely Beauty Army Kit arrived at my door. Now, in other locations I have mentioned that this month was a bit of a let-down for me. The available selection was slim compared to previous months, with most items being things I wasn’t super interested in – like sunscreen. . . I have a SPF 55 sunscreen that I adore – and my bb cream I used daily on my face has an spf of 45 – so no-thank-you I do-not-want any new Face or Body SPF products.  After tweaking my style quiz, and lying about my age by 6 years, I was able to select 5 samples that looked really interesting and 1 that would be an okay filler.

ALL THAT BEING SAID – I still ended up with samples I wanted to try, and am fairly excited about.  This is still the most customized of all the sample subscriptions I have.

So, what was in the box you ask?

Below the break is the list:



The Soap Box – Gelato in Yellow Polka Dot Bikini

Here is another product from my first Soap Box from Fortune Cookie Soap. this is the mini Gelato in Yellow Polka Dot Bikini. It smells like a lemon poppyseed muffin – not too strong – just perfect.  These are meant to be placed into a bath – they will create bubbles and scent the water.  It is supposed to be soothing and refreshing.


Again I only take showers so I didn’t use it – but I did give it to a co-worker to use.  This is probably the cutest bath product I’ve ever seen! It really does look like a scoop of ice cream or gelato.


I went a little overboard taking photos of this one – but it is just SOOOOO cute that I couldn’t help it!


This was a 2 oz sample. The normal product is 6 oz and sells for roughly $7.00  the value of this sample was $2.33.
