October 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.

October Sample Society Box.

Contents of box with approximate retail value.

FULL SIZE Butter London British Racing Green. Value = $15.00

15 pack Radical Skin Care Age-Defying Exfoliating Pads. Value = $14.25

1.7 oz. Minus 417 Hand Moisturizer. Value - $7.00

.06 oz. Diptyque 34 Boulevard St. Germain Eau de Toilette. Value = $2.70

IPKN BB Cream. Value = $15.00

The total value of this box is $53.95. I was ecstatic to see the Butter London polish and in such a pretty color! The exfoliating pads are definitely something I will use. There is just something about getting all the grime off your face that feels so good! The hand cream will go in my purse. I'll use the perfume and BB cream eventually I'm sure but I'm still going through samples of similar items right now. 

Verdict: It's like buying the polish and getting everything else for free!
