July Allure 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.

Price: $15.00 a month. 

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.

July Sample Society Box

Contents of box with approximate retail value.

1.69 Fekkai PrX Reparatives. Value = $7.99

Butter London in Bobby Dazzler. Value = $15.00

.06 oz. Maison Francis Kurkdjian Paris Aqua Universalis Eau de Toilette. Value = $4.38

L'Oreal Paris Extraordinaire by Colour in Rose Melody. Value = $9.99

.06 Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder Highlighter. Value = $8.47

The total value of this box is $45.83. I'm not a big blush or highlighter person but I think I like the color of this one by Laura Mercier. It looks like it's just enough to give your a little glow. I'm excited to try this one. I love almost anything hair related and I very much like Fekkai products. The perfume is ok, I'm not a huge fan of the scent but I like that it comes in a spray bottle. I like the Butter London polish, it's very silvery but I'm pretty sure I have something similar in my stash but of course it's not Butter London. The L'Oreal is a pretty pink color but I have so many lip colors already I may trade this on eDivv.

Verdict: This months was great, between the nail polish, highlighter and hair product I definitely got my money's worth.
