Sample Society by Beauty Bar Subscription Box Review - August 2012

I am so happy with this month’s Sample Society box! I think this is the perfect mix of makeup, skincare, and haircare products.

Sample Society by Beauty Bar Subscription Box Review - August 2012

The Box: Sample Society

The Cost: $15 a month including free shipping plus a subscription to Allure magazine.

The products: Deluxe (and sometimes full-size) high end beauty / skin care / hair samples. (Typically more skin care items).

Arcona Cranberry Toner – 1 oz Value $9 

I haven’t tried this yet, but it gets excellent reviews. Most toners can dry out skin, but apparently this brand is very hydrating.

Deborah Lippmann Nail Lacquer in Private Dancer – FULL SIZE! Value $18

Don’t you just love it when just 1 item in a box is worth more than the cost of the box?! A perfect shade for fall.

Malin + Goetz Vitamin E Face Moisturizer – .04 oz Value $1

I thought this packet was a great bonus as I was excited to try to this brand. I really like this moisturizer: it’s great for sensitive skin, and also prevented my face from getting oily throughout the day.

Phtyo Pre Shampoo Ultra Nourishing Oil Treatment – .33 oz Value $5

I love this brand and was excited to try this product, but I was so worried the oil treatment would leave my hair looking greasy. The good news – no greasy look. The neutral news – couldn’t see a real difference in hair. The instructions tell you to use it once or twice a week for 5 weeks. The sample has about 2 uses in it, so I may not be able to see the impact.

Jane Iredale Longest Lash Mascara – (Black Ice) .1 oz Value $7.80

Elemental Herbology Facial Glow Radiance Peel – .5 oz Value $18.80

I haven’t gotten the chance to try either of these products yet, but will update when I do.

Verdict: For $15 I received about $60 worth of product. Not only is this a great value, but I am really excited about every product. Beauty Bar has been consistent with providing deluxe sized samples at a great value, and I think the variety of samples is improving as well. Great box!
