Sample Society Review – January 2014
Sample Society is a monthly beauty and makeup sample subscription box. Their samples tend to be deluxe sized, and they almost always have a skincare product or two, so I recommend this box if you’re looking to try out new (and usually expensive) skincare products, in addition to the occasional makeup product.
There are usually 7 variations or so of each month’s box. For reference I got the Kit C box.(You can find the Kit letter under your order history).
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.
Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey – .8ml Value $.80
StriVectin Present Perfect Lotion – .25 oz Value $8.67
What a deceptive box! I’m so used to StriVectin samples being generous enough to last me 2-3 weeks, that I was a little disappointed in this lotion sample size. I do love StriVectin products though, and this lotion is new to me – so it’s still a win.
Stila Cosmetics Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Beso – .03 oz Value $7.33
I’m always happy to see makeup products in my Sample Society boxes, and this is a great sample – I never finish full-size lip glosses anyway!
Orlane Paris Extreme Line Reducing Lip Care – 3 ml Value $15
Butter London Holiday Handbag Cuticle Oil – FULL SIZE! Value $15
Verdict: I paid $15 for this box and got about $45 worth of products. I’ll definitely use the cuticle oil, the lipgloss, and the StriVectin lotion, so the value is good for me, but I must admit I’m a little jealous of the subscribers who got two StriVectin products this month!
