June 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.   

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. B. Kamins Sundefense SPF30. Value = $4.50

.05 oz. Stila Cosmetics Lip Glaze in Kitten. Value = $14.00

1 oz. Illume Desert Tulip Tin. Value = $2.81

.12 oz. Murad Age Reform Hyrdo-Dynamic Ultimate Eye Moisture. Value = $15.12

.4 oz. Philosophy Hope In A Jar. Value = $4.00

The total value of this box is $40.43. This had some nice products in it with a great value but it's all items I already have. That's not to say I won't use them but it will probably be a few weeks before I get to it. The Stila product is funny to me because the full size is .08 oz. and this is .05 oz. I mean seriously just add the .03 oz. and make it a full size. I've been wanting to try the Hope in a Jar product for awhile since I keep hearing good things about it.

Verdict: This box wasn't as excited as others but I liked the brands they included.
