February 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.

February Sample Society Box.

Contents of box with approximate retail value.

.17 oz. Murad Advanced Active Radiance Serum. Value = $15.11

.85 oz. Alterna Bamboo 48-Hour Sustainable Volume Spray. Value = $5.00

1.3 oz. Ahava Deadsea Water Mineral Body Lotion. Value = $3.75

.17 oz. Ahava Deadsea Osmotor Concentrate Serum. Value = $10.19

1.7 oz. Phytokératin Mask for hair. Value = $9.82

The total value of this box is $43.87. I've used the Alterna Bamboo products before and I find that I really like them. I also like that this is travel size just in time for our trip to Monterey. I've never heard of deadsea water lotion, but it smells really good! I've heard the phyto products work really well and I feel like my hair could use a good deep conditioning. The serums are nice but I'm still working my way through some other ones I have. 

Verdict: I'm excited about the hair spray, lotion and hair mask this month.
