I just have to say, it's a good thing I was home from work on Monday to intercept the mail. If the husband would've gotten home first to see all the packages that came, he probably would've had a heart attack. Granted I only paid for 2 of them, but he didn't know that at the time. I, however, had a blast going through all my goods. The rain on my vacation day didn't even bother me when I had new loot to check out. Here's what showed up that day:
First was a trade. I believe I sent her a Laura Gellar eye spackle, and lip gloss, and got all this in return. That bottle on the bottom right is a Demeter roll on in Clean Skin, and oddly enough that's exactly what it smells like. I've been in love with Demeter scents for years and was happy to get this one.
A bunch of dish soap samples from Caldrea, along with a spot treater. I've actually been looking for Caldrea but haven't been able to find it offered anywhere near me so I was happy to get these.
This one was a bit of a surprise. Lancome shadow quad in Pretty Pretty. This was a freebie for doing surveys for L'Oreal's consumer testing panel.
This was my Bzz kit that I posted about earlier. You can kind of see in this pic how light the color is, way lighter than my skin tone. I guess a lot of people ended up with colors that didn't match their skin. I was able to test the products just fine, just can't use them beyond that.
This was one of my 2 paid shipments. I used my 20% anniversary coupon from Birchbox. Supergoop sunscreen, Sabon foot cream (OMG love!), J.R. Watkins lemon hand and cuticle salve, and Origins Checks & Balances (of which is the husband's HG cleanser).
I was so excited about this one, my free sample of Rose Hips Black Soap from Shea Terra. This is a 1oz sample and will last a good long time. I had heard so much about this cleanser I couldn't wait to try it.
And when I requested the sample, they were nice enough to tell me about their 30% off coupon code that was currently going on. I ran to the website and placed a full size order. Full size Rose Hips Black Soap (review to come later), Man Power Shea Healing Balm, Bananas & Baobabs lip butter, and mini shea whippers in Bananas & Baobabs, Gingered Pumpkin, and Vanilla Bourbon. They also sent 3 samples of other products. I can't even begin to say how much I love Shea Terra products. Their August 30% off promotion ended yesterday, and since I didn't want to wait for the Sept one I placed a 2nd order. I'll be getting the full size Bananas & Baobabs whipped shea butter, and Premium Dark Chocolate Sugar-Stone Exfoliating Cream.
All that in one day. When I walked outside and saw boxes stacked on my porch I figured that was it, then I could barely get everything out of my mailbox since it was packed so tight. After all this I should be good for a long while. (Who am I kidding right?)
