December 2014 Sample Society Review

I went back and forth about getting this box, but in the end they won!  Was it worth it?  Check it out here...

What is it?
Sample Society is a monthly beauty subscription from and Allure Magazine.  They advertise as of having high end samples.

What it costs?
Sample Society is $12.00 a month plus shipping.  My first box cost $16.
With each box you also get a $10 off $50 to use on any order from for the month.

Each box comes with a small card/booklet showcasing each item for that month.

RGB Nail Polish in Oxblood ($18)
I like this color!  It is a very deep red and will look great for the winter season

Burberry Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base in Nude Radiance ($8)
I was not really sure what to do with this, so I did look it up online.  It is recommended to mix this with your foundation.  I was hoping this was going to be a perfume when I saw we were getting Burberry in this months box.  Oh well!

Crabtree & Evelyn Ultra Moisturizing Hand Therapy in Verbena and Lavender ($8)
Personally, I did not like the smell of this so I will be gifting this item or giving it away.  I do like the formula.

Butter London Lippy Tinted Lip Balm ($20)
I am not a fan of pink, but it is not too bad once you put it on.  I was very excited to try this, and it was one reason I decided to give this month a try!

Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Gel ($19)
So happy this was included, as I always like getting higher priced items I personally would not or could not pay for to try out!

I do not like how much shipping is.  I like the price point of $12 for this box, but I do not like that I paid over $16 with shipping.

One thing I really do like about this box is how easy it is to order and cancel.  If you do not like the sneak peaks for the upcoming month, you can cancel.  You can then easily resubscribe if you like what they will be offering the upcoming month.

Overall, I was happy with the items in this months box.  I like trying some of the more expensive brands.  Some of the items did look small, but they all offer a decent amount of product to sample once you actually take them out of the their boxes.
