BeautySage April 2014 Sample Box Review

I received my BeautySage Editor's Picks Sample Box today!  I think it's currently sold out.  My last sample box from BeautySage did not thrill me like I had hoped it would but this box was much better.

Last time, when I opened the box all I could think about was how small the samples were.  This time was very different.

The Cost: $15 one time charge, shipping is free and when I logged on to the site it gave me a $10 off coupon for spending $30. So I bought a lipgloss for $5. It would have been $15 without the coupon...

What You Get: This month the box has a value of $75 and has a variety of picks the editors decided they couldn't live without. With Beauty Sage, you enter into the deal knowing exactly what you will get (although, if you are like me, you can still be surprised by sizes).
With BeautySage, you already know what you are going to get because they tell you!  So no suprises (except for the sizes).  I'm very happy with this box even if there is one product I can't use.

Bioxidea Miracle 24 Face, $59 (full size): This mask delivers 24 hours of immediate radiance, tightening and wrinkle relief with a cocktail of super-effective ingredients.
Included Size: one mask
Value: $20

Kneipp Arnica Joint & Muscle Mineral Bath Salts, $19 (full size): A 100% natural mineral bath salt that relieve sore muscles and achy joints with revitalizing Arnica.
Included Size: 2.1oz
Value: $2
ClariSEA Instant Glow Powder Exfoliant, $20 (full size): A powder exfoliant that buffs away dead skin cells with naturally nourishing ingredients to reveal vibrant skin. Sadly, even though I want to try this, I cannot because it has Lavender powder in it. I'm allergic to lavender.
Included Size: 1oz
Value: $5

LaRocca Firming Eye Cream, $90 (full size): This luxe treatment helps revive the eye area, making it appear tighter and brighter, with 24K gold.
Included Size: 4ml/.13oz
Value: $6 (they say its $90 for full size but after an internet search it looks like $50 is more common)
Illume Anemone Sketchbook Ceramic Candle, $22 (full size): Fill your space with the aromas of citrus blossoms, crisp apple, ethereal oak moss, oriental clove and a touch of patchouli. This is adorable! It smells sooo goooood, too! I'm glad I'm getting another one in my Sample Society box!
Included Size: 1oz tin with a ten hour burn time
Value: $5

VERDICT:  Much better than the last one!  I will keep my eye on these sample boxes.  It's nice to know what you are getting and it does help make a good decision.  I'll use everything except the Clarisea (no thanks to allergies) and the Kneipp bath salts which will go in my MIL's stocking.
