Sample Society Beauty Box Review – December 2013
Sample Society is a monthly beauty subscription box from BeautyBar.com and Allure magazine. If you’re looking to try out high-end skin care brands and also get some makeup and haircare products too, this is a great box. (They also typically include deluxe size or full size items!)
The Subscription 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 box comes with a card detailing the products included and their full-size prices.
Philosophy Hope in a Jar Night Moisturizer – .4 oz Value $9.60
Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Dry Shampoo – 3 g Value $1
I know this Alterna sample is super tiny, but it’s one of my favorite items in the box! I’ve sampled it before thanks to subscription boxes, and I love how well it works without any harmful ingredients. I think it’s time for me to buy the full size version!
Ouidad Ultra Nourishing Cleansing Oil – 2.5 oz Value $7.35
REN Hydra Calm Global Protection Day Cream – .5 oz Value $13.20
I’m not sure about this cleansing oil “shampoo” but, but I’ll give it a try!
I also just got this REN day cream in my December Blush Mystery Beauty Box, so at least now I’ll have plenty of product to see if there are any measurable results with daily use!
Rossorossetto Lipstick in 102 – Value $5?
This lipstick is paraben-free and fragrance-free, but the color might be a little too bold for me! It’s going in the beauty sample gift pile!
Verdict: I paid $15 plus tax for this box and received over $35 worth of beauty products. That’s a good value for most beauty boxes, but I’m used to really really good values from Sample Society! I think this was a good box, and I’ll use just about everything, but nothing has me excited yet. (I think a full sized makeup item would have made me like this box more!)
