March 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.

March Sample Society Box.

Contents of box with approximate retail value.

Jane Tran hair clips. Value = $3.64

1 oz. Oscar Blandi Texture & Volume Spray. Value = $6.25

.05 oz. Tocca Margaux parfume. Value = $2.00

.08 MD Solar Sciences Tinted Mineral Cream. Value = $1.52

.85 oz. Caviar Cream Leave in Hair Perfector. Value = $8.50

The total value of this box is $21.91. This isn't the greatest value this box has every had but it still has a good value. I really like the red polka dot Jane Tran hair clip. I have some from a previous box and although I don't use them often they come in handy when I need them. I'm a big fan of hair products and leave-in conditioners. Since I color and bleach my hair I make an extra effort to keep it moisturized. I don't recall every trying the texture spray before. I usually like them because they add volume and allow for a "piecy" looking style. I'll probably try the tinted mineral cream since it's so small. And finally they parfume. Its smells a little strong but I'll give it a try anyway. 

Verdict: I'm excited about the hair conditioner and texture spray in this months box.
