December 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 with shipping included.

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: It's a win/win. You get a $5 credit on your account or you can donate that to charity and the person you refer gets a 20% discount on their first purchase at Beauty Bar. 

The not so good:

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

Subscription discounts: They don't offer discounts for multiple months unless you gift a 12 month subscription. Then you get 12 months for the price of 11.

December Sample Society Box.

Contents of box with approximate retail value.

.10 oz. Alterna Caviar Dry Shampoo. Value = $0.85

.01 oz. Alterna Bamboo Style Texturizing Booster. Value = $2.20

Diego Dalla Palma Rosso Rossetto #113. Value = ??

.45 oz. Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant. Value = $9.01

.4 oz. Philosophy Hope in a Jar Night Cream. Value = $9.60

The total value of this box is $21.66 plus a little for the lipstick sample. It's pretty small so I didn't know how to value it but the full size is $34.00. I gave away my last sample of Alterna dry shampoo I will have to get a report back on how it worked. I don't wash my hair everyday but I do get it wet so I've never used dry shampoo. I've tried bamboo products before and really liked how they worked. I'm always looking for ways to boost the volume in my hair. My co-worker and I were just talking about the Hope in a Jar night formula. I'm exited to get this and give it a try. 

Verdict: I'm excited about 3 of the 5 items and will use them right away!
