June 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.

June Sample Society Box

Contents of box with approximate retail value.

.27 oz. H2O Plus Night Oasis Oxygenating Rejuvenator. Value = $6.03 - I received some of this in another box and I've been using it every night. I actually think I'm noticing a difference in the evenness of my skin. 

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

.11 oz. Orlane Paris Hydro-Matifying Care. Value = $7.10

.10 oz. Karin Herzog Vita-A-Kombi 2 face cream. Value = $4.79

.5 oz. Pur-lisse Pur-moist hydra-balance moisturizer. Value = $16.18

2 ml Juliette Has a Gun parfume in anyway. Value = $3.60

The total value of this box is $40.33.  I was surprised to see a lot of little samples in this months box and even more surprised that they added up to a decent value. I have a few of these items already. I guess the benefit to subscribing to multiple subscription boxes is you may end up with several samples of an item you like/use. I would like to have seen at least one makeup item in this box but I will use everything in here so it's a win for me.

Verdict: This months was small but mighty
