Sample Society Beauty Subscription Box Review – May 2014
Sample Society is a monthly beauty subscription from BeautyBar.com and Allure Magazine. Typically the brands they include are high end, and the sample sizes are generous. I recommend this box for anyone who is looking for a skincare beauty sample box with the occasional hair or makeup item.
There are usually 7 variations or so of each month’s box. For reference I got the Kit B 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).
dermalogica Age Smart Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF 30 – .34 oz Value $13
Freeze 24-7 Anti-Aging Eye Serum – .25 oz Value $57.50
One thing that Sample Society usually does well is send good sized samples. (Since they send a lot of skincare products this is especially important so you can actually try a product and see if it works!) This eye serum is half the size of the full size version, and it gets good reviews so I’m excited to try it out!
Flash Facial Exfoliating Treatment – .4 oz Value $39.60
Ouidad Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel – 2.5 oz Value $6.75
This Flash Facial is one of Gwyneth Paltrow’s favorite beauty products so I had to try it! You put on a thin layer on dry, clean skin, and then rub it off in circular motions after 1-2 minutes. (I used a damp washcloth for that part). Visibly I couldn’t see a difference in my skin, but it felt a lot smoother, and I felt like my serum and moisturizer absorbed much better than usual. (Part of me hopes I don’t fall in love with this product though since it is $95 an ounce!)
Juice Beauty CC Cream – .17 oz Value $3.90
I’ve received quite a few of these little Juice Beauty CC Creams thanks to beauty boxes – I like the brand and the formula, so I know I’ll use it, I just wish I received a makeup item that was new to me!
Verdict: I paid $15 for this box and received about $120 worth of beauty products! The value of this box is amazing this month! I think I’ll end up using everything, and I really like that I get substantial product samples with this subscription!
What did you get in your Sample Society box this month?
