Thanks Robyn for letting us know about these boxes! Sample Society is offering past boxes for $15 and $18. And Robyn pointed out that the September 2014 box is available for $15 (it includes the full-size Restorsea $85 eye cream). Check out my review of the September 2014 box to see more.

  1. I was just able to buy the September box, so they have restocked these. I bought four others when they first went on sale. I was disappointed that the September sold out so quickly so I am glad that I was able to get one this go around.


  3. HI ladies. I got an email that my box is out for delivery ups. Very quick service. love it!

  4. I so wanted the September box for the eye cream, but oh, well. At least I don’t have to go through the nightmare described below.

    • I wanted September too :,(

  5. I placed an order for three boxes, including the September box, received a confirmation email for all three boxes, was CHARGED for all three boxes, then received my shipping email showing only two boxes had shipped. I emailed customer service to ask if the third box was being shipped separately. They responded by telling me the September box was out of stock and my card would be refunded in 3-5 business days. Pissed doesn’t begin to describe. They should have sent a different box as consolation AND refunded my money. Don’t send a confirmation email if you don’t have the product!

  6. I bought 4 of these a few months back, September, December, and January, and a mixed 10 sample box. They were a great deal but one of the monthly boxes came with a box of wipes that had been opened and one taken out of. In the mix box the samples were small and all body care and one nail polish, and 2 of the facial lotions were completely dried out and unusable. I contacted them and all they said was “we don’t allow returns on sample boxes.” I can understand why Allure wants to not be associated with Beauty Bar with service like that. Just be aware you’re buying old samples as is.

    • Last month I purchased 2 of the September boxes because as Liz pointed out, they come with a full-size Restorsea $85 eye cream! One box was for me and the other for my mom, when we received the boxes, her box was missing one of the samples (a deluxe size sample of a hair cream). I called their customer service and mentioned the missing sample and they sent out a whole new box! The representative didn’t even ask me what sample was missing. I would definitely order from them again as they demonstrated that they have superb customer service.

      • They’ve sent me a whole replacement box too. I think it just depends on which customer service rep you get!

  7. Really wanted the Sample Society Beauty Box-7 Samples since it has a Too Faced lipstick but it doesn’t ship internationally. πŸ™

    • You’re not guaranteed the Too Faced, so don’t fret!

  8. OMG! Liz I will email you from now on. I got all of these days ago! Im expecting shipment today! YAY!

    I ordered them all. I LOVE these boxes. I have bought others in recent months too….the one that had the LOreal Shampoo/Conditioner and the other set with the Fekkai hair mask that smells like cupcakes. What a steal at even $15.

    Still trying to figure out which MONTHLY Subs I want. Im gonna probably go with 2 Birchbox Women, Beauty Fix and maybe GlossyBox (if it ever arrives!!). I will cancel all others then just buy special boxes like these below when Im low on stock. πŸ™‚

    Today Im expecting delivery on the following (5 boxes total):

    Qty Description
    1 Sample Society December Beauty Box
    2 Sample Society Beauty Box – 10 Samples ($30 value)
    1 Sample Society January Kit
    1 Sample Society September Kit

    • Could you please post the contents of the 10 sampler? Ugh, I’m so bummed about the September box! When did this offer come out, you said you ordered a few days ago!

      On another subject, the beauty fix is great!

      • It’s been listed for sale on the Beauty Bar site for at least a couple of months. I ordered it on April 13th.

      • I posted mine in Instagram under #samplesociety if you want to see what I got. The monthly ones were better in my opinion.

        • I have an instagram account but only use it for contests. How would I access this post of yours on instagram please? Thanks!

        • There are tons of photos under #samplesociety . How do I narrow it down, lol. I’m new to instagram.

    • Hello All:

      Well all 5 came in! Must admit the biggest disappointment DECEMBER BOX! Wow! Thank goodness I opened that last. I had the September box to console me, though. (Yes the eye cream is there and its lovely…)

      NONE of my items leaked or broke. Its almost hard to get it out of the outer box, its packaged so well. Sorry that others had issues.

      Heres what came in my 10 Sample Pack. I am of 2 minds. I love big samples but want quality. I over all am beyond happy with what I received and my eye cream alone is worth the value of all 5 boxes combined. I think I got 3 X $15 and then the Sample 10 both were $18. Anyway right around $81 so thats about the same as the eye cream value. πŸ™‚

      My 10 Sample Box Contents – Glad I bought 2 Boxes!:

      **Butter London Champers Color Nail Polish – perfect for me, this is a shade I wear often. Full size. .4 fl oz.

      **Dermologica Daily Microfoliant .45 oz I love anything by this brand.

      **Jane Tran 2 hair clips – always needed on my vanity.

      **Cotz Face Balanced Mineral Complex 3 GRAMS yes this is teeny – but eh.

      **H2O+ Aquafirm Micro Collagen Moisturizer .34 fl oz

      **Philosophy Hope In a Jar .4 fl oz. Have wanted to try this forever. Got a BABY BABY sample of this too also in December. How strange for 2 different sample sizes of the same product? Hmmm.

      **Karin Herzog Vita A Kombi2 Anti Aging Face Care 0.1 oz

      **Tantasia by Jane Iredale guessing .2 fl oz its teeny but about double the size of the Karin Herzog

      **Nicole by Nicole Ritchie Perfume mini spray – at least its a spray…. and I like the light scent for summer. .05 fl oz

      **Super Goop Advanced Anti Aging Eye Cream 2 ml – very tiny but its eye cream.

      Overall for $1.80 a sample including shipping so I dont have to deal with packed stores? Not that bad. I just regret not getting 2 September instead of 1 September/ 1 December. Sigh.

      • Thanks for posting spoilers! I hope you enjoy your boxes.

  9. I had no idea that the Restorsea eye cream was in that box or I would have purchased it earlier! I’ve never gotten anything that nice in a Sample Society box. I managed to get one in a swap (and it’s amazing!)but I still couldn’t tell where it originated from. I am so bummed! I went to the site a few hours ago, put in my order but realized my credit card was outside (why was my info not on file??). BY the time I got back I also received the “sold out” message. That soured me on the whole deal … I’m pretty sure I’m going to pass on the whole thing!

    Has anyone ordered the 10 Sample box? I know they’re probably small samples, but of what.

  10. Oh bummer, I had September’s box in my cart as I really need eye cream, but it seems to have sold out.

    • Same thing happened to me.

    • I am so disappointed! The same thing happened to me, it was in my cart, and once I had gotten through the process of entering all of my information to purchase it then said sold out!

      • Well, snooze, you lose, I guess. I knew the boxes were available but was waiting to order. They’ve been available for months. Now someone spread the word and they’re all sold out. #KickingMyself

        • I found out today from an Amazon Prime e-mail blast, and sent that on to Liz. Once it went out to Amazon customers everything seems to have sold out very quickly. So sorry you missed it!

  11. Hi! Anyone have any info on the box that is called
    Sample Society

    Beauty Box – 10 Samples ($30 value)


    List: $30.00
    Looks like the holiday box. 10 samples from a list of brands they give?

    • I’ve bought several of those 10 and 15 sample boxes. Variety is really fun but they are small samples. Not sure if this is the same but the products listed are similar to the ones I received.

      • Thanks!

  12. I ordered the September box mostly because of the eye cream. Great value. And apparently it arrives tomorrow πŸ™‚

  13. Thanks! I just ordered that Sept one you mentioned. I only had a 6-month sub with them from Nov-April, so did not get that one. Super excited to try that eye cream! Also can’t wait for my MSA/Klover Box πŸ™‚

  14. A quick heads up to everyone on the December box – I ordered two and both times got the “Mush” Butter London lipstick color. I saw bloggers all get pinks and reds, but both of my boxes had that color and I hated it (I have fair/cool toned skin)

    • I ordered the December box and got “Apricot Sunray.” Why anyone would want that color is beyond me. I wanted Strawberry Fields. But I found someone to swap it to, so it’s all good.

    • Ugh, exact same thing happened to me. I also got the La Source hand cream in both boxes, and I can’t bear that scent, it gives me a migraine. I wish they would have given me two different mixes since I ordered two boxes, but I imagine they don’t care much now that they’re calling it quits!
