My First Sample Society Box


I mentioned BeautyBar.com's new beauty sample site called Sample Society in which they partnered with Allure last month. I quickly signed up! After being disappointed by MyGlam bag, I had high hopes for Sample Society which is $15 a month vs the usual $10 (so those samples better be awesome!). I will say that I had a lot of issues with their customer service before even receiving my box. First, there was an issue charging my card then there was a delay on shipping. However, after all that frustration... I really liked my box!


I loved the aesthetic - definitely more my style! It came in a sleek black box with silver tissue paper.


I received 5 deluxe samples as promised along with a booklet with hair and skincare tips from Allure. I would have liked if the booklet included more details about the products like Birchbox does, but these were really luxurious samples.


I received the following:
Overall, I really liked the box and would use most of the samples. I would like to see more makeup/beauty items in the next box rather than skincare/hair. I'll give it another 3 months before canceling but they definitely need to work on their customer service.

Did you receive a Sample Society box? What did you get? Sign up today!

  1. This is nice =}. Actually this is called "Deluxe samples" vs the sample products that I received from Birchbox. I actually like 3 products from your box: Dermalogica Daily Microfaliant , Skyn Icelandic Eye Relief Pen, and Ren Glycolactic Skin Renewal Peel Mask. Thank for your review and picture. ^_~

  2. Looks like some pretty good products! I am horrible with samples though. I always forget to use them! I won a giveaway and am getting 3 months of Birchbox...I have yet to use anything from my box I received last week haha.

  4. Ooo I might have to switch. I'm giving GlamBag one more chance this month before I make any final decisions.

  5. Nice review.. I'm on the waitlist for the Sample Society. Birchbox this month was amazing, MyGlam... not so much.
