Sample Society May 2014 Review


I know that I've said it before and I'll probably say it again but Beauty Bar's Sample Society is so close to the top of my favorite subscription lists that it might as well be number one.

The Cost: $15/monthly

What You Get:  Five deluxe size samples from fantastic brands like Dermalogica, Borghese, Murad, and butter London.


The brands in Sample Society are VERY good.  I find that it is always worth the $15 I spend and more.  This box is no exception.  That Sonya Dakar alone is $95 an ounce!


Sonya Dakar NutraSphere Flash Facial- This gets rave reviews online and in my forums so I'm excited to try it.  When someone says it works better than their Clarisonic, it's gotta work! A 1 minute exfoliating treatment definitely works for me!
Full Size Value: $95/oz
Included Size: .4oz

Borghese Gentle Make Up Remover-  Another excellent brand.  I have a particular make up remover that I love and nothing has ever made me as happy as it does so this will go up for swaps.
Full Size Value: $30/8oz (although Amazon has it for $18/8oz sooo....)
Included Size: .5oz

Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Repair CC Cream SPF 30 in Natural Glow:  I personally am not a fan of Juice Beauty products.  They stink.  I mean that literally.  I had a lipgloss and it smelled so bad when I used it that I just threw it away.  Just because it's natural doesn't mean its good.
Full Size Value: $39/1.7oz
Included Size: .17oz


Murad T-Zone Pore Refining Serum- Yay! Clean pores! I am so using this.  If I wasn't writing this post right now I would be seeing how good this is!  I do like Murad.  They have several products that I regularly use and I'm happy to be able to test this out.
Full Size Value: $42/2oz
Included Size: .125oz

Dermalogica dynamic skin recovery SPF 30-  This is a moisturizer with sunscreen and it also has peptides so it is nourishing to your skin as well.  I'm so picky with my sunscreens.  It has to be super light or I won't use it.  This is a great way to check out a new one and see if I like it!
Full Size Value: $65/1.7oz
Included Size: .34oz


VERDICT: I still love Sample Society.  I can't stop.  This box has an incredible value (especially with the $30 worth of Sonya Dakar alone!) and the sample sizes are more than enough for several applications.  I also love the brands.  One of the other things I enjoy about Sample Society is that they regularly include skincare products.  I tend to prefer skincare over make up, although I have never turned my nose up at that either. Last month had a butter London FULL SIZE eyeliner in it!
And it wasn't black!  Mine was a glorious blue.  Oh, right.  Verdict.  LOVE IT!
