April Sample Society Box

Sample Society by Beauty Bar is a monthly service for beauty products that promises 5 fresh deluxe sized samples from luxury brands designed for multiple uses.  You also receive a coupon each month for $15 off a $50 purchase from Beauty Bar and a 12 month subscription to Allure magazine.  The cost for this subscription is $15.00 a month.

The good:

The samples: You get deluxe sized samples from luxury brands.   

Information: They include a booklet with beauty tips  

Magazine: You get a free 12 month subscription to Allure magazine.  If you already subscribe they will extend your subscription and if you don't want it you can mail in a form for a refund on the value ($12)

Coupon: They send you a coupon with each box for $15 off a $50 purchase.  The catch is your order has to include at least one item from a brand you received that month.  It doesn't have to be the item you received just the same brand.

Referrals: If you refer someone to their site and they make a purchase the company donates up to $30 to charity.  I thought this was a nice gesture.  My referral code is pixiepower. 

The not so good:

Skip a month: There is no option to skip a month, only cancel.

Contents of box with approximate retail value.

.5 oz. Borghese Makeup Remover. Value = $1.82

1 Hanskin Hydro Sheet Mask. Value = $3.60

.07 oz. Stila Cosmetics Prime Pot Waterproof eyeshadow primer. Value = $10.00

.06 oz. Caudalie Premiere Cru night cream. Value = $5.36

set of 2 Jane Tran Hair clips. Value = $3.50

.10 oz. Cotz Face Natural Skin SPF40. Value = $1.33

The total value of my Sample Society box is $25.61. I think this box was a nice mix of products. With summer coming any face stuff with SPF is helpful. I really like the hair clips and I use clips often. I think most everyone is aware that I enjoy face masks in the bathroom, this one looks fun and familiar. I used to use eyeshadow primer and found that it worked but out of sheer laziness I stopped using it.  Ha, Ha.

Verdict: I enjoy these boxes and like that  value is always way above the $15.00
