I finally received my March 2014 Sample Society box. I subscribed for a three-month subscription and this is the last of my boxes, so now is the time I will decide if I extend my subscription or not.
The Cost: $15 a month
The Products: Sample Society sends 5+ deluxe and full-sized beauty products from the top beauty brands and indie companies in the country. You also get $15 in credit to spend in the shop and an Allure mini-mag.
The Concept: The editors of Allure (the parent company of Sample Society) aim to help you discover the best in beauty without the risk of full-priced products.
Other Reviews: You can read my past Sample Society reviews here.
Dr Brandt Flexitone BB Cream 0.25 oz – Retail Value $9.75
Okay, this is my new favorite BB cream to use. I’ve had a bit of an obsession with my drugstore BB cream and I couldn’t find anything better, but this cream is really something special. It evens my skin tone, has SPF protection and doesn’t leave my face feeling oily or dried out. It’s perfect.
Alterna Caviar CC Cream 0.85 fl. oz. – Retail Value $8.50
This is a leave-in cream which is supposed to provide moisture, shine, smoothness, softness, anti-breakage, heat protection, light hold, UV protection, manageability, and strength. I have not had a chance to use it yet, but I am really excited to try it this weekend!
Jane Tran Hair Accessory Assortment - Retail Value $3.66
We always seems to be losing our hair accessories, so I love getting more!
MD SolarSciences SPF 30 Mineral Tinted Creme 0.08 oz. – Retail Value $1.91
Jane Iredale Tantasia Self Tanner - Retail Value $3?
I am never particularly thrilled to get self tanners because I simply have no use for them. This will be gifted.
Thoughts: This is not my favorite Sample Society to ever receive, but I did manage to find one product that I absolutely love and will be buying more of in the future. My love for this product pretty much makes this box a hit with me. Other than the BB Cream, nothing really stands out as being particularly exciting.
