I am so sorry I have been gone all of last week. I am bipolar and I had a terrible low. You can follow my mental health adventures here. Anyway, I don’t want to get stuck on that just wanted to explain a smidgen.
I decided my first post back would be a review In my last month Beauty Bar Society box. Per the website here is the specs…
You love beauty. But between the business of everyday life — career, friends, workouts, date nights — you don’t always have time to discover the latest must-have products plus the brands creating buzz.
That’s why Sample Society clues you in to the best-of-the-best in beauty, without you having to do any guesswork or legwork. Each month, our beauty experts handpick five deluxe-sized samples (read: you can use them more than once) from the world’s best luxury brands, then deliver them right to your doorstep. Finding your new favorites — and enjoying what’s new in beauty — couldn’t be any easier.
- 5 deluxe-sized samples from brands like Alterna, Diptyque, Dermalogica and By Terry.
- $15 monthly gift code to redeem on a $50 purchase — when any product from the brands you sampled is included in your order.
- An exclusive mini-mag filled with tips and beauty news from the editors of Allure.
I already put in my order for the month and am receiving the RMS Luminzer and a Juice loose shadow. I am excited to have both,
One of the samples I received last month is the Sonya Dakar Flash Facial.
This is a hearty sample. I have used it easily five times and still have a good amount left. It doesn’t take much either to work. I love this product but there is one huge down side. I will bring that up in a minute. First the specs on this per the Sonya Dakar Website.
Get softer, plumper & younger skin in just 60 seconds! 1 minute exfoliating gel gentle enough for all skin types.
Reveal fresh young skin in 1 minute! This safe and effective exfoliating gel quickly sloughs away dead skin and other impurities. Created with lactic acid to gently detoxify, Hylasome (5 times more moisturization than standard hyaluronic acid), and anti-oxidant rich resveratrol to nourish. Skin is left soft to the touch, plumper and instantly brighter. The results are immediate and undeniable. Recommended for all skin types.
Apply daily. Massage a thin layer onto clean, dry skin and allow to dry for 1-2 minutes. Gently rub off in circular motions. Rinse face with lukewarm water and follow with appropriate Sonya Dakar treatment product.
It really does all those things. Now I am not sure if actual skin is peeling but I believe it is. And that is all that matters right lol. I can tell you I did it right before writing this and my skin feels smooth all across my face. And it does feel succulent and refreshed. I haven’t done it every day to know about the lightening but I can see it to be true.
A full size is 1 oz
And the one major con is the price. It retails for 95.00. WOW I know in the big beauty world this isn’t that wild of a price point but for little ol me it is. But I REALLY REALLY want it, I will have to wait until I make extra money being a makeup artist (sigh dream job!!) then I will pick some of this up. Until then I will enjoy my sample sporadically until gone. (sniff sniff lol)
Now you can save fifteen dollars two ways. 1) getting the society box and using your monthly promo code 2) going to Sonya Dakar’s website where a pop up will ask if you want to save 15% with an email address.
Does anyone know a similar product that is less pricey? If so please let me know in the comments.
