September 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.

September Sample Society Box (sorry the Alterna product was so dark)

Contents of box with approximate retail value.

.03 oz. Givenchy Dahlia Divin Eau De Parfum. Value = $2.16

1.35 oz. Alterna Caviar Repairx Re-Texturizing Protein Cream. Value = $9.28

3 pack Tarte Brazilliance Self Tanning Face Towelettes. Value = $9.00

.5 oz. Restorsea Revitalizing Eye Cream. Value = $85.00

.17 oz. Lorac POREfection Mattifying Face Primer. Value = $3.20

The total value of this box is $108.64. Incredible! I'm really excited about this box, except for the face tanning things. I'm just not into fake tan face, it never works out for me. I know a lot of people don't like the perfume samples but I like them because it allows me to try lots of difference scents and I'm not a one scent kind of gal. I've used the Alterna cream before and will use it again no problem. I can't believe how much the eye cream is. This is something I would never buy so I'm excited to try this.

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