O's Circle of Friends - Test and Keep Product

Back in October Oprah 2014 launched her new O's Circle of Friends subscription. The subscription has three levels of membership and each one offers a little something different. The basic membership is $39 the prime membership is $99 and the premier membership is $199. The prime membership has all the bell and whistles but it's also expensive. I debated on which one to sign up for but because Oprah has the magic touch when it comes to products I opted for the premier membership. I was intrigued by the "test (and keep!)" products component. The total value of the premier membership is $597.00 

I finally received a test and keep product this month. I'm happy with the item itself but I certainly hope there is more to come.  

The good:

Oprah: Pretty much everything associated with Oprah turns to gold. 

Price: Three different price levels. 

The not so good:

Value: So far I'm not seeing the value in the premier membership.

First test (and keep) product.

This is my first test (and keep) product. I'm a fan of Burt's Bee's and will definitely use this. The value of this is $13.00

Here are the items I've received so far with this subscription:

One year subscription to O Magazine print & digital. Value = $16.00

(2) Gift subscription to O Magazine. Value = $16.00/ea.

Keepsake Gift Box of luxury items. Value = $122.27

Surprise Gift (Sequin Bangle). Value = $28.00

Test (and keep) product (Tips and Toes Kit from Burt's Bees). Value = $13.00

By my calculations I should be getting more items totaling $385.73 coming my way in the next 6 months if they want to honor the $597 value promised.

Verdict: I'm still not too impressed so far. I really hope more "test (and keep)" products make their way to my mailbox. 


  1. I agree, I was expecting more by being a premier member. I already subscribed to the magazine.

    1. Too bad you missed the Oprah Weekend. Special seating, after show party and photo with Oprah

    2. Did an announcement go out for that? Maybe they didn't have one in my area so I never got anything.

  2. Nice surprise of Burt's Bees Products. The Coconut foot cream is more of a rich balm. Used the almond milk hand cream on my neck and chest because it is so rich.

  3. I received the Carols Daughters (MONOI) Repairing Collection and was very pleased with it. My hair is thin, soft and curling, however,using the MONOI Repairing Collection, my hair became softer and straight. Now that I have used it,
    I think I will continue.
