Goodie time....

My pink box of fun came for February, and I have had the chance to sample everything.  This is what we had this month:
  • Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint
  • WEI Pomegranate Buffing Beads
  • WEI Golden Root Purifying Mud Mask
  • Juicy Couture Couture La La
  • TIGI Rockaholic Fun Times Flexible Hairspray
  • Ghirardelli Milk & Caramel Squares

Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint:

I think this would be my favorite product in the box, if only the sample were a bit bigger to actually see if it mositurizes as well as it luminizes.  As it is, its very tiny, so I've only really been able to use it as a highlighter.  But its got SPF and tint, so I'd like to use it all over.  It seems to absorb well, and the shimmer is so fine that it gives you the perfect glow without being gittery.  Apparently it comes in 5 different shades.

WEI Pomegranate Buffing Beads:

These were something totally new to me, and I think I like.  The contents of each little pack are apparently milled pomegranate peels plus some buffing beads.  You are supposed to mix the powder in with your facewash and it turns it in to an exfoliating scrub.  Indeed my face is soft when done, and it smells good.  I think they said one pack per wash, but I've gotten 4 face scrubs out of one.

WEI Golden Root Purifying Mud Mask:

I've never even heard of this brand WEI before, but now I've sampled 2 of their products.  The face mask was a nice treat.  Its very smoothe and not grainy or too thick. This detoxifying mud mask  removes dead cells and dirt without leaving skin feeling taut and dry. Its also infusioned with golden root—a botanical revered by Chinese royalty for centuries—which helps skin look younger by reducing the oxidative stress placed on your cells as they age. I got 2 mask treatments out of the one pod, I just had to seal the pod in a ziplock to keep it from drying out between uses. 

Juicy Couture Couture La La Fragrance:

This is a fine fragrance.  I currently own Juicy Couture Viva la Juicy la Fleur, and prefer it over this one, but it was still nice.  This one is described as bright and zesty mandarin, crisp green apple, and tart red currant notes, with soft lily of the valley and orange blossom to lend it a hint of chic femininity. 

TIGI Rockaholic Fun Times Flexible Hairspray:

This was a good sample size (will go in my travel bag), and its an ok hairspray, but I won't be switching from my daily Elnett.  Wasn't a big fan of the scent ( a little to chemically for me) and I didn't find it particularly flexible.  It was actually kind of stiff on my hair.  Granted, I could comb it out, but then I lost the hold it provided.  Not bad, just not for me.
And last but not least:

Ghirardelli Milk & Caramel Squares:

Didn't need to sample these to know I love them. I've had many times before, and could eat a whole bag in a day (then feel sick. I don't actually recommend doing that.)  The chocolate is melt in your mouth, and the caramel is the perfect creaminess.  L.O.V.E.
