I'm pretty happy with both of the spoilers so far. This is only my 3rd month with Sample Society but it has never let me down so I'm counting on another great month of goodies :)

I'm thinking about joining SS now that one of my other subs has gone kaboom.. but I'm trying to hold out for a free code or until my money is refunded from the other sub (since I spent it before my no buy, it doesn't count!! haha!) I tried the one posted by @rachelshine unfortunately it didn't seem to work =( so I went ahead and signed up for the beauty bar website hoping they'll email me a SS code too =)

 

for those ladies who have been subbed for a while - how do you like it compared to ipsy and BB?

I like it. It does send more skincare, etc than makeup. The brands are good, and there's usually a variety. It isn't the most exciting/fun box but it's always good quality products, the shipping is fast, and they are consistent.

I don't have BB but I do have ipsy. These are more high end products then you will get with ipsy and I think it's a good variety of what you get. I should also mention I've only been a subscriber for two months.  That being said, with the products usually being more high end I am less likely to buy the actual product even with the $15 off you get with your subscription.  Of course I rarely take advantage of the ipsy deals either.

Comparison between Sample Society and Ipsy/BirchBox:

 

-Ipsy: painfully slow, inconsistent shipping, heavy on lower quality makeup, makeup bags each month, constantly repeated brands, promo codes each month, consistently sends 5 products per bag.

 

-BirchBox: somewhat slow shipping, mix of products month to month (makeup/perfume/skin/hair care etc,), varying degree of product price points (some cheaper stuff, some higher end), lots of box variations so your happiness with your box varies widely (as do the number of products in your box), points!

 

-Sample Society: Consistent shipping via UPS, more skin care, less makeup, repeated brands/items, high-er end products, $15 off $50 coupon each month, usually small variations between boxes (one or two different products or shades), they usually send 5 or 6 box variations, where Birch has 50-60, Ipsy has oh I don't know around 6-8 variations?

Thanks ladies! The consistent higher end products is what is really appealing to me right now, though I wish they had some kind of point system instead of the discount (that's why I initially went with BB). I have a feeling I'll be signed up by the end of the week lol

I rejoined as well! I liked the service but I cut back on subscriptions for a while and decided to join again.

I've honestly never heard of Sample Society till I was browsing the threads here, and I in no way need another subscription box. But, I decided to join! I have absolutely no clue what to expect, but I'm excited :):beer:

    • Hi I really need som help to find a good foundation. Im 35 years old and when I put on foundation it looks terrible. On the left side I have no makeup but in the right side I have Max factor radiant lift foundation. I still have acne and thats why I want to use foundation..
    • I'm going to have one day a week off of work for a while! I have not had any vacation since I began my job in 2015. Is No Buy worth it if it lets you work less? Maybe! 
    • Moisturiser is one skincare staple that people with dry skin absolutely can’t do without. Dry patches, flakiness, peeling skin, are just some of the many issues that dry skin beauties have to deal with. And if that isn’t enough, finding the best moisturizer for dry skin that leaves your skin happy and hydrated is a task in itself.    Picking the right skincare products for your skin type is not an easy task - there is a lot of research involved in finding a product that would suit you the best. And that’s probably what brought you here, right?
    • Other than making you feel weirdly satisfied while peeling off the mask properly, charcoal peel off masks offers a wide range of skin benefits. Especially black peel off masks, which are all the rage right now among teenagers and adults.  
    • Hi guys. Well I am a 37 year old woman and I looked into a Makeup Academy when I was in my early 20s but it was too expensive for me to afford at the time. A little background on me. I never had anyone to teach me how to do makeup. My mom was NOT a girly girl so I had no real feminine influence lol. I have never tried to do anyone's makeup because I lack the confidence. But I would really like to learn. My question is, has anyone here started Makeup school at a later age? Were you in school with mostly younger folks and how did it work out for you? I guess my question is, is Age a disadvantage in this industry? Thanks!
