  1. Spoiler #3: LORAC Cosmetics, Inc. POREfection Mattifying Face Primer!

    I’m happy about this one. Between this and the eye cream, I can overlook the tan towels…

  2. I had to sign up. Love eye creams and that’s right, full size with this price, can’t resist 🙂 September will be my 3 month with subscription boxes. So far I loved most: Fabfitfun, Glossybox, birchbox and the worse one was Ipsy. Both last months was dissapointing! I think Sample Society looks great so far, can’t wait to see what other 4 products will be in September box!

    • Everyone is saying that Sample Society and Glossy Box are great. I am finally signing up for Sample Society.

      I’m Not terribly excited with my ipsy and Birchbox but received a decent bb this month. I am thinking of canceling both.

      My favorite boxes by far are Blush Beauty Mystery Box and boxy charm. I love the full size items at about $21.

      Beauty Box 5 has been great for me at $12 and I received great items and two full sized.

      I finally tried Fab Fit Fun because I had a coupon and it was a nice box.

      Just not thrilled with Birchbox or ipsy. My blush beauty mystery box and boxycharm are spoiling me I guess. I love the full size items worth $100-200.

      I have heard that as far as sample boxes go that Sample Society are Glossybox is the way to go.

    • I just signed up a second box. Too good. Always need eye cream.

      • Excellent idea… just did the same.
        Though they don’t have any sort of refer-a-friend perk like BB does… 🙁

  3. After another lackluster bag, I cancelled Ipsy but was bummed because it’s my only subscription. Then I saw this and signed up immediately. I’m so excited!

  4. After regretting not purchasing the July and August box, I have finally signed up for this subscription! I hope it continues to be an amazing box.

  5. Signing up for this box when they revamped it has been one of my best box choices ever. I LOVE the value and so far I have been totally stoked with each box. I’m thrilled about this spoiler. This has been the best value for my money thus far.

  6. This will be my second Sample Society Box! Very Excited about this subscription so far. Just cancelled my IPSY for this one! So far so good!

    • Great choice. I was on ipsy waitlist for months. Did the share on fb but do not have a twitter account. They sent me emails and emails and asked me to skip the waitlist, shared and shared on fb. Never worked. Finally cancelled.

      • Ipsy was a total waste of money! So thrilled with Sample Society!!!!

      • I told Ipsy that I do not do FB and that I was not going to put my cc on a site for months without there being a need for it. (No need for it to be a requirement for the waitlist as it’s not being used.) Several times I asked how long the wait would be and several times they emailed back with an answer that was not an answer (gave no information). We emailed back and forth a few times and they then they said “finish your entry information and you will be taken off the waitlist immediately”. So I did.

      • Got the same runaround from Ipsy, finally decided it wasn’t worth the annoyance for the privilege of eventually getting to to give them my money. Canceled.

  7. I’m excited! This is my absolute favorite sub of the 9 I have…I’ve loved every box since they revamped.

    I feel like I should just cancel birchbox and ipsy but then I always think, well, $10….so cheap. I was thinking of canceling petit vour but I loved the last box. So many choices!

    • What other boxes do you have? What are your favorites, besides this one? This has been a good couple months for this box.

  8. By the way, which eye cream can you recommend to fight crows feet? My favorite is Elisabeth Arden Prevage Eye Serum.

  9. Reviews on Amazon aren’t that great… I almost sign up imedietaly when I saw this spoiler, but after checking up amazon I will think a bit. Great value spoiler, but if not effective not reason to do it to my eyes. I really have deep crows feet and need a GOOD cream

    • I look at it this way. Everyone is different. This product might not work well for me or I might find the best thing I ever used. At less than $20.00, you cant go wrong trying it!

  10. Hey!
    Oh I am SO joking this sub! I regretted not getting the August box and I am in need of new eye cream BAD!

    So if I go sign up now… Will they send me the Aug box now and then send Sept later?? Or is it too late for Aug box?

    Also when does the sub actually ship? Or what time of the month can I expect it?

    Thank in advance!!

    • If you sign up now you should get the September box. And they usually ship the first week of the month.

  11. This is so tempting but I also have Nina Garcia’s Quarterly Box, PSMH’s Fall LE Box and my Allure Beauty Box coming in September too in addition to the regular boxes that I get… But what a good value and I’d love to try it because I’m always on the lookout for a stellar eye cream. decisions, decisions. Hmmm.

    • Hi Crystal,
      When you say allure beauty box which box are you referring to? I thought sample society was the allure box? Unless you mean the allure box that sells out so quickly, how did you purchase it already, I didn’t even know you could buy it yet.

      • I believe a small group of people (Allure’s Beauty Enthusiasts) got an email invitation to buy a year of boxes up front, so they don’t have to be part of the madness box-by-box!

        • Yes! I bought all 3 of mine up front. I received the invite and was luckily one of the first 500 to respond.

          • Do you know when is coming out for sale? I would love to get one.

        • Hi Gina,
          Thanks for schooling me on that…
          That’s lucky I wish I could get in on that deal. Chrystal do you know how often they send that email. What did you have to do to be invited?


          • I think the box is going on sale during the last week of August and they usually release complete spoilers the week or so before it goes on sale.

            As for purchasing them all upfront I was sent an email from them because I’m part of their Enthusiast program. I read the email and bought the boxes immediately. Only the first 500 people to respond we’re allowed to purchase them in advance. I’ve been buying these boxes since I was in college, like 8ish years ago, so I knew that I definitely wanted them all. And the buying process has always been super hectic for as long as I can remember. I don’t think that will ever change or that their server will ever be able to support the volume of buyers that they have for these boxes.

  12. I really want this, I love eye creams! I’m wondering though, if I purchase this now, will I get August or September?

    • You will get the September box.

      • Thanks so much, Liz! 🙂

  13. Yay! I’m so happy I joined last month, thanks to your site.

  14. I’m excited to try this creme. It looks like one that I can tolerate around my eye.

  15. I saw this in the Beauty Bar email. Between this box, the MSA Quarterly (which is now sold out 🙂 ), and the Memeboxes I’ve ordered, September is going to be a fantastic box month! I can’t wait!!

  16. Amazing! Wow….the revamped Sample Society is quickly becoming the best beauty box out there for the price. Can’t wait to see what other treats we’ll get.

  17. This is tempting especially for only $15 mate I’ll try this and cancel boxycharm which I was highly impressed with this month and it was my first box and this seems similar

    • I would keep boxycharm!! Although this sample society box is looking amazing. Sample society usually has deluxe size samples where as boxycharm is always Full size. If you are looking for amazing cosmetic boxes that are full size I recommend blush mystery, boxycharm, lip factory,starbox, those are all amazing boxes wantable is awesome too but a little pricier! Those others are either 15 or in the 20s

      • I agree as Boxycharm has been amazing for me and so has Blush Beauty Mystery Box. Now those are two boxes that I won’t give up! Full size items, high end brands and cost slightly more then sample subs. I love full sizes!

        I’m the same way about ipsy and Birchbox. They don’t really impress me and then I get to thinking well it’s only $10. I know that all adds up though.

        I’m thinking that Sample Society and Glossy box may be better for me. I’m giving ipsy and Birchbox another month or two and I may drop them. I am going for Sample Society now and considering Glossybox. I heard it’s hard to cancel with them and bad customer service. ??

        I am enjoying Beauty Box 5 for $12 a month.

        I currently have Blush Beauty Mystery box, Boxycharm, Beauty Box 5, Ipsy and Birchbox. That is 5 subs and when I add Sample Society I will be at like $96 a month. I don’t wanna go over $100 but wondering how I’ll like Glossybox. I did purchase Fab fit Fun but it’s a quarterly box and I had a coupon so couldn’t resist.

        • Hi Brandy,
          Glossybox isn’t hard to cancel. I had two accounts and cancelled them both. You just have to cancel before the cut off otherwise you’ll be charged for the following month. While the samples are high end. I find them to be on the tinier side. And I just wasn’t using them as much. I’ll probably sign back up later on, as I love there packaging. And if I see great spoilers then I’ll buy that box. Ipsy I have a annual account and a monthly one. Joined for 3 months, I love the little bags but I’m not liking that both bags are the same even tho I’ve changed the profiles. Birchbox I had 4 accounts down to 2. I stay because of the point system.
          I wish my boxes were under 100. But I sub to kid boxes to so that’s not possible lol

  18. Wow, this is starting to look like a amazing box. $85 value for one item in a $15 box. I’m blown away. Since the new relaunch I have to say I am very happy with sample society. Such a amazing box these days!!

  19. oooh, i just canceled beauty box 5 and wasn’t going to do another under $20 box but this was too tempting. 😀
