May 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.

May Sample Society Box

Contents of box with approximate retail value.

.17 oz. Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Repair CC Cream. Value = $3.90

.34 oz. Dermalogica Age Smart Dynamic Skin Recovery. Value = $13.00

.5 oz. Borghese Fango Body Refining Polish. Value = $3.06

.4 oz. Sonja Dakar Flash Facial Exfoliating Treatment. Value = $39.60

.125 oz. Murad T-Zone Pore Refining Serum. Value = $2.63

The total value of this box is $62.19. This box of treasures is near perfect for me. I couldn't believe how expensive the flash facial product is! Results in 1 minute? We will see. I hope it works. I've been able to try other Murad products through subscription boxes and even though everyone says I'm being ridiculous I feel like my pores are huge and dirty. My friend once told me my problem was looking into magnifying mirrors and any ones pores would look huge then. Which is true but that doesn't stop me from always looking to clean and reduce them. I'm also a big fan of body scrubs and I imagine this little container won't last long but that's ok. I know dermalogica is really good and I like that this has SPF protection. I'm not to into foundations but I have some of this juice beauty stuff from another box and I've been using it under my eyes on those "I'm so tired days" and it blends nicely.

Verdict: This months box is a hit!
