August Allure Sample Society Beauty 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 with no option to skip.

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.

Contents of box with approximate retail value.

Ciaté mini paint pot in Cha Cha Cha. Value = $8.00

2.5 oz. Oribe Surfcomber Tousled Texture Mousse. Value = $21.50

.16 oz. Too Face Melted Liquefied Long Wear Lipstick in Melted Peony. Value = $8.40

..1 oz. Jane Iredale Longest Lash Thickening & Lengthening Mascara. Value = $7.93

The total value of this box is $52.33. I like everything in this box except maybe the nail polish, it might be a little bright for me. Expensive hair stuff that I will use? Yes please. I am really liking all the Kate Somerville products I've tried, I find oils like this works best for me when applied at night. I have a couple of mini mascaras from other boxes and I kind of like them, especially when traveling. I also like the little purse size lip products.

Verdict: This months was another great box. I can't wait to try the mousse.
