Sample Society Review – July 2013 – Beauty Subscription Box
Sample Society is a beauty and makeup subscription box service from Beauty Bar done in association with Allure Magazine. Each month they send you 5 deluxe (and sometimes full sized) beauty samples. Sample Society consistently sends out high-value boxes with high-quality samples – I definitely recommend this beauty subscription service!
The Box: Sample Society
The Cost: $15 a month
The Products: Deluxe and full-size beauty and makeup samples. (Each month you also get a $15 off $50 to use on any order containing a product from any of the brands in your box).
Each month is accompanied by a mini-magazine from Allure and a card with details on each product.
Vincent Longo Trio Eyeshadow in Paradise Love – FULL SIZE Value $30
I love when Sample Society includes a full-sized makeup item in the box – this eyeshadow alone is worth double what I paid for the entire box! I don’t have any eyeshadow shades in these colors, so this should come in handy when I am feeling a little more adventurous with makeup colors!
Ouidad Moisture Lock Define & Shine Curl Styling Gel-Cream – 2 oz Value $8
Tres Pure Face Tonic – 10 ml Value $5.50
I probably will never pay $65 for a face tonic – and I definitely wouldn’t without knowing I love the product first. One of the things I have come to appreciate about Sample Society is that they usually send out deluxe samples of very expensive skincare items – it’s a great way to really try a product without investing a small fortune! I like the scent of this face tonic and the fact that it’s only made from 3 wholesome ingredients, so if I find it to be life-changing I may spring for the $65 bottle – we’ll see!
Supergoop! Advanced Anti Aging Eye Cream – 2 ml Value $6
Lollia Petite Shea Butter Hand cream in Wish – Value $7.50
I guess this is turning out to be the summer of Supergoop! in subscription boxes? It’s a good thing I like the brand – and I’m even starting to get a little annoyed when I open up a box and see Supergoop! Fortunately, this Lollia brand is completely new to me – and I’m loving the scent and the packaging!
Verdict: I paid $15 for this box and received about $57 worth of product! Sample Society always seems to have boxes with amazing values, and the July box is no exception. Plus, I think this box had a perfect mix of makeup, skincare, haircare and body products! What do you think of the July Sample Society box?
