First up was an Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Serum. This is a 7 ml sample worth $14.46. The Allure mini magazine included in the box says that this is a redness and sun spot fading serum, both of which are problems I have so I'm excited to try this out. I was also happy to find that the serum isn't heavily scented or perfumey, because I've had a bad reaction to serums that contain a heavy fragrance.
The second item in my box was the Bond No. 9 perfume sample in the scent Highline. The mini magazine lists this scent as a mix of bergamot, purple love grass, rhubarb, red-leaf rose, tulip, grape hyacinth, sea moss, bur oak, and musk. That's a whole lot of scents in one perfume and unfortunately I don't love the scent. I'm not a perfume person in general though, so it's very rare for me to find one I like. This sample did come in a cute little package wrapped up like a piece of candy. Bond No. 9 sells this size in an 18 pack sampler "Bon-Bon Box" for $260, which gives this single sample a crazy high value of $14.44.
Next up was the Emi Jay Hair Tie 3 Pack. I love fabric hair ties but have never tried the Emi Jay brand so I was very happy to get these in my box. They feel like good quality ties and I will get plenty of use out of them. This three pack is sold for $6.60.
Finally I received the Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara in Black. I definitely groaned a little at another black mascara sample, but I've also never tried any Bobbi Brown products before so one positive is that I get to try a new-to-me brand. This has a good sized fiber bristle wand and Allure calls this a "safely dramatic" mascara that is good for everyday. The mascara is a 3ml sample worth $16.80.
Overall this was a decent box and for my $15 subscription price I calculated a value of $54.27. This is a great value, but I do think it's inflated by the high price of the perfume sample.

As I mentioned above I unboxed this on my YouTube Channel and also reviewed the products from the September box after the October unboxing.
