When I recently renewed my Birchbox subscription I used it is an opportunity to repurchase the Tocca Crema de Mano Hand Cream in Cleopatra and order a free Mystery Sample Pack.

The Mystery Sample Pack is free when you spend over $35 on full size products. You just add it to your cart. If you haven’t spent over $35 on full sized products you can still add a Mystery Sample Pack but it costs you $10. The Mystery Sample Pack includes one deluxe and one regular sized sample.

In my Mystery Sample Pack I received:

Grand Central Beauty S.M.A.R.T Skin Perfecting Serum + Primer
Sample size 6ml
Sample value $8.16

I am really loving this serum, I feel like it gives my skin a nice radiant glow.

Antica Farmacista hand cream in Bergamot & Ocean Aria
Sample size 10ml
Sample value $2.46

I did have a bit of a giggle to myself when I saw this sample. I purchase hand cream and got a hand cream sample. So it’s definitely a luck dip with what mystery sample product you get. I have enjoyed the extra hand cream although I prefer the Tocca hand cream to this one.

Was it worth it?

The thing that I felt was missing about the Mystery Sample Pack was no beautiful card and description from Birchbox about why they loved this product. It’s definitely worth adding a Mystery Sample Pack to get free products but don’t expect it to be packed glamorously!
