Beauty Buys - Sephora's Soko to Tokyo Sample Box

      I'm sorry for the lack of posts in the past two weeks! I've been swamped with personal errands, work, and I also just got back from a trip to Chicago! I'm back on track with my normal posting schedule, and today's post is about a new beauty box I picked up from Sephora! I picked this box up after my cousin pointed it out to me. I don't usually purchase these deluxe sample boxes because there is always only one or two products I want to try out from the entire box. However I wanted to try practically all the products in this box!

Price: $40

What it Includes:
- 0.5 oz Erborian Crème Scrub Beautifying Exfoliating Pearls 
- 0.2 oz Amore Pacific Treatment Enzyme Peel 
- 1 oz Boscia Exfoliating Peel Gel 
- 1 oz SK-II Facial Treatment Essence 
- 0.68 oz Skin Inc. Pure Deepsea Hydrating Mask 
- 0.34 oz Belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb 
- 0.2 oz Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Cream 
- 0.17 oz Dr. Jart+ Premium Beauty Balm SPF 45

First Thoughts
      I haven't tried all of the products yet, but I did try Belif's the Aqua Bomb and Amore Pacific's Treatment Enzyme Peel - both of which I liked. I think most of the samples are pretty generous, and they give you enough product so that you can really determine if they work well with your skin. I especially love the Treatment Enzyme Peel by Amore Pacific! Only a tiny bit is needed, and I can probably get a good 10-15 uses from this one sample. The mask from Skin Inc. as you can see is really large, and I'll probably use it once or twice to see how it works on my skin and then save it for when I travel if my skin likes it. I am especially excited to try out the SKII Essence though! My only qualms about this box is the BB cream by Dr. Jart because it's in the shade medium-deep. I basically can't use it at all, but I'll probably pass it onto a friend who perhaps can use it. Also, there are three exfoliating products which I think is a bit much. I would have preferred another sample of a cream or serum in lieu of an exfoliating product. In summary, I hope to find some new favorites from this box, but overall I'm liking it as a whole and highly recommend purchasing it as it contains some great products! For $40, it's a great buy.
