This is my very first Sample Society Box. It's $15 a month and is advertised to come with 5 deluxe-seized beauty samples and the allure mini-magazine.
This is my October Sample Society Box:
This box includes:
-Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum
-Bond No. 9 Fragrance Sample
-L'Oreal Paris Advanced Haircare Total Repair 5 Restoring Shampoo and Conditioner
-Emi- Jay hair ties
-Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara in Black
The first thing that I'm excited about is the pack of hairties. They're in darker, neutral colors that I'll actually use, and these have a bit more stretch to them than some other do. I'm thinking that will mean that they work out in my thick hair.
The shampoo samples (I actually got 2 shampoos and no conditioner) will come in handy for traveling around the holiday season and also for camping.
Things I'm not too excited about... Mascara- I'm pretty sure I got 5 mascara samples in various boxes last month. However, if I hadn't, this would be a great sample to add to my collection. While I don't think I'll use the fragrance sample, it will be nice to throw in as a little extra on an eDivv trade. Speaking of eDivv, I'm also pretty sure that's where the Estée Lauder Serum will end up. I don't really have a need for a correcting serum, thankfully, but I think others might.
For those wondering, the "mini-magazine" is basically just a very detailed description card. However, I love having all of those details when looking through my box. Sometimes I receive products in other boxes that I don't even know how to use, and that is sure to never happen with this subscription.
For my first sample society box, I'm pretty satisfied with this one. I think the value is there and it included a good variety of products.
