Little Black Box for July 2008

In July, I won a contest at the Black Box Reviews blog, I won a July Little Black Box and received it quite promptly, on July 28th.

This is the blog entry regarding it -
Little Black Box Contest Winner

I was excited to open it up and see what goodies were inside. As you can see they have switched over to bags, from boxes.

Inside I saw there were a nice variety of items,
and I took some pictures of the contents. All the items laid out.

My box had the following items in it:

- Thank you mini note from Tags and Buttons
- Hardy Breakfast flavor dog treat from Unique Treat Dog Bones
- Berry Bling scented Pirate Booty soap favor from Soap Sushi
- Green tea and cucumber scented soap from Barbs Homemade Soap
- Corner Bookmark and two Magnets from Hippie Dippy Designs
- Shoe print travel tissue cover from Midnight Creations
- Neopolitan scented soap from The Soap Seduction
- Eternal Egypt perfume from Nocturne Alchemy
- Blue car stud earrings from AlwaysAmy

- Raspberry Lemonade sugar scrub from Shebas Secrets
- Earrings from JAC Jewelry, Arts and Crafts
- Soap Samples (Scents: Cinnamon Loaf, Blue Sapphire, Shimmer Angels, Lemon Meringue, Ocean Rain, and Lilac) from Soap Scent-sations
- Bookmark from Diana Crites Gallery
- Fine art photography print from 3 Lambs Design
- Two cards and envelopes from Five Dot Design

A closer look at the perfume, and the two earrings. So far the two products I have used are the sugar scrub and the neopolitan soap.

The sugar scrub was nicely sized.
It's great, not greasy or oily,
and just the right amount of scrubbyness!
Smells nice too :)

The neopolitan soap was a generous size,
and it didn't irritate my semi-sensitive skin.

I also used the discount code that Tags and Buttons included in their sample and purchased a few things from their etsy shop!

A total of 15 different shops were included in my little black box. The savings you can get from shops who give discount codes, plus all the great samples have me thinking it's worth the cost of the little black box. September's box goes on sale September 26th.
