June Allure Sample Society Box

The Allure Sample Society beauty box is a monthly service for beauty products that promises 5 fresh deluxe sized samples from luxury brands designed for multiple uses. 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.

June Sample Society Box

Contents of box with approximate retail value.

1.69 oz. St. Tropez Self Tan Express. Value = $20.00

1 oz. eSalon Perfect Ending Leave in Conditioner. Value = $3.99

E.L.F. Studio Small Stipple Brush. Value = $3.00

FULL SIZE Lauren B. Beauty nail polish in Polo Lounge Punch. Value = $18.00

Completely Bare Wax Strips for Face, Bikini, Body. Value = $??

.18 oz. Cotz Face Sunscreen SPF40. Value = $2.41

The total value of this box is $47.40 not including the bare wax strips. I finally organized all of my makeup brushes and I don't have a stipple brush, lots of eye shadow brushes but no stipple. I don't normally wear liquid foundation but only special occasions I'll put it on. I'm not a sun person but I wouldn't mind having a little color on my legs. I think I'm going to go ahead and try this self-tanner and see what happens. Fingers crossed. Of course I'll use the leave-in conditioner and probably the cotz sunscreen also. It goes on really smooth, and evens out my skin a bit. 

Verdict: This box was ok. I was only excited about two of the items.
