I was so excited to see a hair accessory in my March Sample Society Box! It was about time! Beauty Bar’s Sample Society is a monthly subscription box with 5 beauty items (usually found on Beauty Bar!). Every month you get a mini mag plus a $15 coupon to use on a $50 purchase that includes one of the brands found in your box.
The Description: Get five deluxe-sized luxury brand samples and $15 monthly gift code to redeem on a $50 purchase at BeautyBar — when any product from the brands you sampled is included in your order. Plus an Allure mini-mag.
The Price: $15/month
March 2014 Sample Society Review
Sample Society no longer includes an info card, but you still get the Allure Mini Mag. I hate that I don’t have a card detailing the benefits of each product. My online account didn’t have a card either.
Alterna CC Cream ($8.50) This is for your hair! It’s an 2013 Allure Beauty Award Winner and not available on Beauty Bar. Hmm Ok!
Hanskin Premium Perfect Super Magic BB Cream ($7.50) A South Korean brand, which explains why it is “whitening.” I think I’ll pass on this one. It’s a pretty hefty sample though.
Jane Iredale Tantasia Self Tanner ($3?? No size) Why do they put a self-tanner in with a whitening cream? Weird! I’ll use this on my face because it’s clearly not enough for my body.
MD SolarSciences SPF 30 Mineral Tinted Creme ($1.50) Half-full. I’ll use it, but I wish this was a full sample, because this tube isn’t huge.
Jane Tran Hair Accessory ($3.50) These are cute and will get used, as I’m way overdue for a cut!
I’m pretty underwhelmed by this box. Perhaps if I had an information card I’d like it better? I’m leaning towards taking a break from Sample Society for a few months! I
