Allure Sample Society August 2014 Spoilers

Thank you Claudia for sharing this spoiler with us! The November 2014 Sample Society box will include:

Sample Society Spoiler

Malin + Goetz Bergamot Body Wash – 1 oz (Value $2.25)

What do you think of the first spoiler? I know all spoilers can’t be high value items, and I like the brand, so no complaints from me. Hopefully the rest of the box is a lot better than last month’s though!

  1. I cancelled on Oct 7 on their website and got charged today anyway. Not good. Everything is tiny sample sizes again. A foil packet hair product, a tiny perfume vial sample, a 1oz body wash sample?!?! Come on already, this isn’t remotely worth $15. Last month was bad but this is way worse, especially since I cancelled it 5 weeks ago and still got stuck with it.

    • I didn’t mind so much last month because I only paid $5. For $15, this is a complete ripoff.

  2. The Full Sample Society Spoilers have been leaked! Totally disappointed! Nothing looks full size!

  3. Liz, Apparently they’ve let out their second spoiler on their instagram page, here’s the image:

    The second item seems to be a sunscreen from MD Solar Sciences (that’s valued at $39.00 for the full-sized 1.2 fl. oz. amount):

    I have no idea if the Md Solar Sciences item will be full-sized or not; from the spoiler picture it looks to be smaller than the full-sized but I can’t be sure.

  4. I decided to cancel. It was hard because it’s only $15.00 a month; what if I miss out on something great. I will stick with their mystery warehouse sales.

  5. ok, I was really hoping this box would have a great spoiler for Nov since last month was not a big hit with most people. I was happy with last month but like someone mentioned already, a $2.00 spoiler, really! although I am not familiar with this brand, still a shampoo??? where is the makeup Allure? this still is a makeup subscription, right……. I really hope the remainder of this box has some good stuff in it. This is the only sub I have that I am really on the fence about cancelling but I love the red box they use and I need at least two more for what I am using them for, LOL they have me for the rest of this year but after that I am not too sure…

  6. I’ve been trying to swap for this item for months so I’m actually happy to get this in a box. But I do hope there will be at least one high-value item this month.

  7. I cancelled before last month’s box and this spoiler isn’t enticing me to start my sub up again. Pretty underwhelming.

  8. After the October box, actually I didn’t love the September box either, I am really thinking about canceling. I mean it’s allure magazine!! How can they not get decent box items?!

    Like everyone else, I think I’ll be canceling!

  9. I actually liked last month’s box but I want to see more full size products back into sample society. I am not thrilled with a small sample as the first spoiler! At least is is a good brand, but still!

  10. While I was underwhelmed by the drugstore shampoo and conditioner last month as well, I was thrilled with the hair ties and the dark spot corrector. I’m excited to see what’s in this month’s box….maybe they don’t want to spoil the best surprise we have coming πŸ˜‰

  11. lol I have to be the only person the least bit excited about this sample. I didn’t like last month’s box, but I love Malin+Goetz lip glosses so well I might love the body wash. But I don’t get why they would choose such a low value item for their spoiler, that part doesn’t make sense. It does make me worry a little about the box, sample society boxes used to look so awesome, I finally subscribe and the last one wasn’t good.

  12. I’m giving it one more month. We will see.

    • I gave it some thought. Decided to cancel this one and boxycharm & decided to put the money toward the French Box and the MSA quarterly box instead. Curation and care is becoming the most important factor for me.

  13. *yawn* Color me unimpressed. I’m only a few months in to the whole subscription game, but I know that last months box, and this spoiler are a bit meh. I only sub to SS and PSMH for myself, and this makes me want to drop SS and save some money.

  14. Looks like they’re trying to set expectations low after last month’s debacle. I haven’t decided whether or not to cancel. :/

  15. I don’t even get why SS would use this as a spoiler. I thought spoilers were supposed to make you want to purchase the box?!? This makes me want to do the exact opposite. Seems very silly and not good for their business model, but maybe it’s just their way of surprising you! Btw, I agree. Liz don’t keep us waiting any longer. Can’t wait to to see the MSA02 spoiler! πŸ™‚

  16. are you serious!!! spoiler alert for a $2.00 bodywash. I need to cancel. does anyone know if we’ll get another spoiler alert?

  17. Super glad I cancelled after last month’s crap box. If this spoiler is indicative of the value we can expect, it’s not worth it to sub. This indeed is a free hotel soap at several different properties (I travel a lot for work). Last month they falsely advertised a larger size of the “high value” item and then under-delivered. And allegedly made it up to subscribers by tossing in drugstore shampoo and conditioner samples. Um, no. Just. No. I worried that after a few good, higher value/quality product months they would go back to their pre-revamp boxes. And they didn’t disappoint.

    • I feel the same way. I ended up canceling last month and sooooo glad I did. Those hair ties and cheap shampoo samples…no thanks. I thought the first spoiler would be amazing and I’d cave. A tiny little sample is the best spoiler they have? Rather than get new subscribers, they are going to lose them after this dud of a spoiler. It’s such a shame…they revamp started off so strong.

  18. Just FYI, popsugar must have out out a public letter on their Facebook page about shipping and changing system issues. I kept waiting for you to post about it, but figured I would let you know.

  19. It’s strange that the spoiler they selected is worth less than the box. I do like it and am hoping to see a second spoiler before deciding to keep the box.

  20. This product is nice but it is a hotel sample. I have seen it in my travels many times. So, for me, not so exciting. It does smell good though!

  21. I too very much hope to see an MSA02 spolier before November.

    I like this brand but it’s not a very enticing spoiler. I’m of the opinion that the first spoiler should either be the best or 2nd item to draw in interest and set the expectation bar for the box.

    This isn’t the kind of spoiler that makes someone want to subscribe.

    • Agreed! After last month, you would think their first spoiler would be either the value of the box or a FULL size item (and actually the advertised size).

  22. I’m really not excited about this. I’ve been debating cancelling after last month’s awful box and figured I would decide after the spoiler. This has made up my mind.

  23. I think this looks great….but…………I keep stalking this website hoping for a MSA02 SPOILER πŸ™‚ I KNOW, I KNOW, it’s coming soon πŸ™‚ I am just so excited πŸ™‚

    • OMG, yes please, MSA02 spoiler! Maybe if enough of us post, Liz will give in! lol

      • Lol yes me too!! I’d love to see a MSA02 spoiler!!

        Side note, I’ve already canceled beautydna after being underwhelmed too much, about to cancel julep and SS may be next if this box fails to impress. I’m holding out hope the subs will impress us around the holidays though.

        • I love BeautyDNA

    • A little, teeny, tiny spoiler for MSA02 please Liz πŸ™‚
