Sample Society Beauty Subscription Box Review – June 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 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).
Ships to: the US
Karin Herzog Vita-A-Kombi 2 – 3 ml Value $4.70
Borghese Fango Deep Hydration Finishing Treatment – 15 ml Value $3
H2O Plus Night Oasis Oxygenating Rejuvenator – 8 ml Value $6
Compared to last month’s box, these skincare samples seem so small in size and value! I also don’t like when skincare samples won’t last long enough to see their effects.
Orlane Paris Super Moisturizing Concentrate – 3.5 ml Value $7
Pur~lisse Pur~Moist Hydra-Balance Moisturizer – 15 ml Value $16.50
Juliette Has A Gun Anyway Eau de Parfum – Sample Value $1
Even though this Pur-lisse sample is a good size, I’m so spoiled from getting full-sized Purlisse products in so many other subscription boxes that it seems tiny!
Verdict: Eh, this was a bit of a boring Sample Society box for me. All skincare samples + a perfume sample just isn’t super fun for me. And the value is pretty low this month compared to other months. (This month’s value is about $38, last month’s was over $100).
I feel like I’m complaining over a perfectly decent skincare box, but I just wish they had put in one haircare or makeup item to mix things up a little. What did you think of the June Sample Society box?
