Allure Sample Society January Spoilers and Discussion

Recommended Posts

arg I just signed up and didn't know if the coupon worked because there was no place that said how much I'd be charged with the discount. I have to contact CS and keep fingers crossed that I can still get the $5 off.

 

It says 0 free month and then says they're still charging you $15.... but on the site there is a pic about the coupon. I have no idea. I hope they email me back about it.

Ok, I will play devil's advocate.  I can only find one official spoiler released by SS - The Zoya Polish.  Then there was the hint of the Philosphy product.  I may be wrong but, the only indication that there was a 6th item is the photo that appears on order history (a photo seen after billing occurs).  It is confusing to show the item with no plans to include it.   Its visible and sets expectations. But, the box itself was not officially advertised with full spoilers.

@kookmama You are absolutely right. There was never an official spoiler stating the Strvectin was there.

I don't understand why the box would be pictured with everything in it but thrown in an extra item that that people would get excited about but not include it.

I'm still pretty happy with the box,

I just think its a stinky thing to do..

@@Kristy_Isabelle - I don't get the picture with the extra item either. Not sure when they started showing the box on the order history this way. My September history shows just an unopened Allure box. I didn't sub for October/November. But, December shows the open box and its contents are accurate. So, why wouldn't we think these would be the contents.  Let down is natural.

Reminds me of BB a little bit.  We get to see the contents of what will be in our boxes in full size on the BB website/app. Then when we receive the box, there is always a little letdown because some of the samples are not great representations of the products.  That's my feeling anyway.

Same thing happened to me. :( No big deal I guess. I'm excited to have a new box to look forward to anyways.

I get box tomorrow so I'll def update on the contents/color/shades etc once it arrives.

 

I saw my UPS man today and told him he needed to bring me my makeup early! None of this 4:30pm when all the ground deliveres are made. I want it by 10am! Told him to act like it was an air shipment. :)

Well, this is way too soon after the El Enlighten bait and switch ordeal.  2 times in a short period makes me feel this was purposeful.  This attached pic is from the Jan order page.

I've been really happy with the Sample Society products and customer service. After receiving a broken Butter Lippy Balm in December's box, they quickly accommodated my request for a replacement. I look forward to this week's shipment!

Thank you for posting your box @@Bizgirlva!  My box won't be here for another week so I'll have to live vicariously through all of you until then.  I'm happy to see the StriVectin was included.

Got my box :) strivectin serum was there plus other goodies.. My shades were rayne for zoya nail polish n blue for revlon :) Do u think they go by age in choosing shades or the profile questions we filled when we started the subscription or it is simply a random chance ?

I got the blue combo (Rayne Zoya and Cobalt revlon).  This was the polish I wanted, so I'm super happy!  The soap is adorable btw.

Got the Lavender/ Peach combo and it's also my first Sample Society box- I had no idea it was the size of a Birchbox, thought it would be Glossybox sized.  I basically bought the box for the tiny soap, pretty excited to use it.

Wow!  So I had ordered a separate December box (just the box, not a subscription) and it came with a broken Butter London lip balm.  I emailed and asked if they could send me a new one and the guy said no we don't do replacements like that and he gave me a $5 credit instead.

 

I was so unhappy with that but let it ride until I saw @@isabelfromcali mentioned they sent her one.  I just wrote an email asking if they could take back the $5 and please send me a replacement, that I was not happy with the earlier resolution.  I even said I'd send back the whole box.  

 

It apparently is all about getting the right rep because Kathy is sending me a WHOLE new box! Which is awesome even though I really just wanted the lipbalm.  And I've already got the invoice for it, too.  She said I should keep the box, keep the $5 and thank you for subscribing. 

 

Now *that* is customer service!  I love you, Sample Society (and Kathy)!

That's amazing! Maybe it takes a woman's understanding.

Hi, I'm new, but want to start posting because I have been really loving these Sample Society boxes - I cancelled all of my other subscription boxes, because I like getting products from brand names that I know, buy, and can find at the store. I love the Estee Lauder & Bobbi Brown stuff that we've gotten in previous boxes, and the skincare in this box is amazing.

 

Alas, I got the blue/blue box combo, but would have LOVED the peach eye/lavender nail combo. Regarding the nail polish, the blue "Rayne" that I got was my second choice, so that's OK, but purple's my favorite color, so I was really hoping for "Leslie." Still, I've never tried Zoya before, and the blue is very pretty, so it's OK.

 

I do not like the Revlon in Crystal Cobalt, however - I have a warm yellow undertones, and any blue makeup makes me look like I have two black eyes. I would have been happy with either of the other two Revlon colors, the peach or gold.

My box came today. I got the Zoya shade in Rayne. I was surprised to see shimmer in a pastel, but it doesn't look horrible in the bottle. I got 050 Cobalt Crystal for the Eye Art.

 

The soap and the conditioner turned out to be way smaller than I expected...this was a disappointment after last month's box with the Burberry and Tinted Lippy, but I think I'll still like the serum and philosophy product.

    • Careprost is a regenerating agent that was originally developed to treat hypotrichosis and restore healthy eyelash growth. The product is a sterile solution that should be applied externally, treating them with the growth lines of the upper eyelashes and eyebrows.  Perfect eyelashes complete the look of your eyes; they add beauty to you and make you look attractive. Fuller eyelashes not only define your eyes but also sharpen your facial features. Eyes with long lashes look bigger and brighter. Whatever might be your skin’s complexion, your sharp features make you glow even in your dark skin color. The cosmetic market has a wide variety of eyelashes of different colors, length, density, and curvy ones etc. which you can wear with ease. But are these fake eyelashes are much being easier to apply or they are actually hassled. Putting fake eyelashes is a tough task and make the process troublesome is to make them intact for a long duration, controlling your hands to not to touch them. Using fake eyelashes is a temporary solution; it does not give you a natural look.
    • Yeah I totally agree  that the trends of fashion of clothes is growing with the passage of time so it's needed for everyone of clothes as make your appearance very obvious and awesome ..
    • Yes, it is quite good. Why do you ask this?
    • But what if she CAN'T afford experimenting with different products? That might really make the situation worse and harm her hair even more... Same with home remedies. If your really want to change your hairstyle then hair extension is a good option because you won't damage your hair and scalp. You can actually lookup the tutorials on the web, but videos on Youtube are more descriptive.
