Sample Society August 2013 Review
Sample Society is one of my favorite tried and true beauty subscription boxes. Each month they consistently send out high-quality products in either deluxe or full size samples.
Each box comes with a mini-mag from Allure magazine with a few beauty tips!
And every box also includes a card detailing each item in your box that month. There’s also a coupon code for $15 off any purchase of $50 or more at Beauty Bar if you have one item in your order that is one of the brands from the box that month!
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).
Supergoop! City Sunscreen Serum SPF 30 – 5 ml Value $4.20
Elemental Herbology Cell Plumping Facial Hydrator SPF 8 – 15 ml Value $22.20
I am so excited about this Elemental Herbology facial hydrator! It has an amazing fresh natural scent, it’s free of harmful ingredients like parabens and phthalates, and it’s truly a deluxe-size sample. I’ll be able to use this for at least a few weeks!
I was less excited about the Supergoop! serum, only because I already have it in full-size – thanks POPSUGAR!
Jane Iredale Purelash Lash Conditioner – Mini Sample Value $4
Korres Cherry Oil Lip Gloss in 11 Buff – 2 ml Value $5.60
I thought Korres was a natural brand, but this lipgloss has artificial coloring. It smells just like fresh cherries though!
Dr. Hauschka Cleansing Cream – .34 oz Value $5.50
This cleansing cream doesn’t lather like a typical cleanser. It’s primary ingredient is almond meal, and it gives a fine exfoliation. I just tried it out on the back of my hand, and can’t believe how clean and smooth my skin feels now. I think I’ll end up using this cleanser to the last drop!
Verdict: Sample Society boxes always seem to have high values, and my August box is no exception. I paid $15 for this box and received over $40 worth of top-quality product. I think this might be my first Sample Society box where I was more excited about the skincare items than the makeup products! What did you get in your Sample Society box this month?
