Sample Society By Beauty Bar - December 2012 Review - Monthly Beauty Subscription Boxes

My only complaint with Sample Society is that sometimes they send too many skincare items and not enough makeup items. Fortunately that wasn’t a problem this month. I’m really pleased with the December box!

Vapour Organic Beauty Elixir Gloss in Sultry – FULL SIZE! Value $20

I LOVE this lip gloss! It’s not sticky at all and has a ton of shine. I’m so used to getting lip glosses that have artificial dyes in them, so I’m thrilled that this has natural and organic ingredients.

Murad Line Tamer Age Reform Time Release Retinol Concentrate – .1 oz Value $13

At first I thought this was a small sample, but it’s actually 1/5 the size of the full size, and a little goes a long way. It should be enough for me to use for a few weeks!

Wow! This is an expensive little sample! It’s 1/4 the size of the full size, and I should be able to get a few weeks use out of it.

Hanskin Premium Perfect Super Magic BB Cream SPF 30 – 10 mL Value $7.34

I’m still not entirely sure why they including a packet and a tube of BB Cream from Hanskin, but I’m not complaining!

Verdict: I think this is the best value I’ve ever seen for a Sample Society box – approximately $75! Plus I’m going to use everything! What did you think of this month’s box?

  1. I LOVE Sample Society!! Never any iffy brands or problems with my boxes.

    I got Jane Iredale mascara in the tube, which I LOVE, instead of lip gloss.
    I had a tube of the Iredale mascara and have looked all over for it, so I was THRILLED to have another, LOL. I think it’s the best mascara I’ve tried since my old favorite, Diorshow waterproof. I am going to buy full sizes of at least 3 of my products this month.

    Are you going to buy any full sized items with your discount, Liz?

  2. This is a fantastic box! I can’t wait for mine to arrive. Did you ever review November’s box?
