Redbook Happy Hour House Party - #Giveaway

Thanks to House Party, I was one of the applicants selected to host a Redbook Happy Hour House Party. On June 19th I gathered a few friends and family members at my campsite to discuss the new formatting and look of Redbook magazine.  I was surprised to find that a couple of the guests had never heard of Redbook before.  It's been around for so long that I assumed it was a household name.  For my readers that don't know, Redbook is a women's magazine that explores different areas of life ranging from parenting and fashion to love and money. 

House Party and Redbook sent me and my guests a wonderful mix of samples.  Some of the things in the party pack included:
free Redbook subscription cards
Redbook cosmetic cases
Redbook reusable bags
L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara
L'Oreal Paris Magic Smooth Souffle Makeup beauty seals/cards
L'Oreal Paris Youth Code Serums
L'Oreal shampoo and conditioner packettes
Seattle's Best Coffee packs
Snyders of Hanover Three Cheese Nibblers
Carolina Pad paper clips
NCircle DVDs
Also included were literature sheets and tip cards.  As a host, I also received free Snyder's of Hanover coupons and boxes of L'Oreal Sublime Mousse by Healthy Look Hair Color
My guests ranged in age from 17 to 65.  It was a casual, laid-back affair of girls getting together to talk about the different samples and what we liked about each of them.  We also discussed beauty confessions and embarassing moments.  The current issue of Redbook magazine brought about a discussion of what articles we liked in the magazine and which ones didn't excite us so much.




There weren't any particular favorites among the samples as a whole.  Each person had their own favorite and it varied among the group.  What everyone agreed on is that Redbok and House Party went all out to provide some great samples for guests.  We learned of products we handn't heard of before and revisited with some familiar products.
