What is Glam Pack and how do I receive one?
Glam Pack by Sample Bar is a monthly subscription service that delivers a beautifully packaged pack of all things beauty. For a small monthly fee every month you'll receive a mix of 5 luxury beauty miniatures ranging from makeup, skin care, hair care, body care and everything in between, even a lifestyle product! Best of all, these items are delivered right to your door so that you can try them in the comfort of your home and discover what works best for you.
You can receive your Glam Pack by joining Sample Bar and selecting your preferred subscription via samplebar.co.nz/subscriptions.co.nz.
How much does a Glam Pack subscription cost?
For $25 a month you get your Glam Pack delivered right to your door step. Plus, the postage cost of your Glam Pack is FREE!!
What brands can I expect in my Glam Pack?
Finding the right product means knowing that it's the best product out there. From department store brands to the best-kept secrets from around the globe, we'll give you the opportunity to try products at any scale from luxury, boutique right through to emerging brands so that you can find the products that best suit your lifestyle.
What is a 'luxury miniature'?
Each month your Glam Pack will contain 5 luxury beauty miniatures of our amazing beauty finds for that month. In general, a ‘luxury miniature' is one that delivers multiple uses of the same high-quality product. In rare instances, if we want to share a certain innovative and totally sample worthy product with our Glam Pack members, but we cannot get a luxury miniature from our brand partners, we will choose to include a packette or single use sample just so you don't miss out on discovering something amazing.
Will you tell me the contents of my Glam Pack?
One of the exciting parts of getting a Glam Pack is the surprise element every month. That's why we keep the contents a secret until you receive them. If you are still curious, keep an eye out on our Facebook for clues as to what's in our Glam Pack and head to our brand partner's page at the end of each month to see which amazing brands we have partnered up with.
Is the Glam Pack customised for me?
We do our best to try to customise the packs and that is why it is important for you to fill out the beauty profile. Some samples are sent to everyone- these products are carefully chosen to ensure that they'll work for a wide range of styles, skin types and colourings. Other samples are chosen specifically for your skin, beauty needs and style. We are also truly committed to never sending the same product twice! Please contact us if this happens.
We know that you are always looking for ways to update your beauty regime so that is why we also allow you to change your beauty profile as and when you need to but be sure to do so before the 1st of each month. If you update your beauty profile after the 1st of the month, your Glam Pack will contain offerings based on the beauty requirements you selected prior to the 1st of that month.
How do I get more information on how to use my luxury miniatures?
www.samplebar.co.nz has all the detailed information on how to get the most out of your luxury miniatures. In the Glam Store section of our website, visit the product page of the items and learn more about the product. You can also read our blog for updates on the products you will receive in your Glam Pack.
I love my luxury miniatures! Where can I buy it?
That's great to hear! We knew that you'd love your luxury miniatures! If you would like to purchase full size versions of your favourite products you can do so through our online store, the Glam Store and earn reward points with every purchase. In limited circumstances where a product is not available on our site we will direct you to the appropriate participating salon, spa or the brands local purchasing site for you to make your purchase. Only active members receive reward points for shopping on our Glam Store.
What if I have sensitive skin or am allergic to certain ingredients?
Although we strive to feature products that work well with everyone's skin, we are currently unable to customize according to allergies. We always recommend that you carefully read the ingredients for a product to make sure your luxury miniatures in your Glam Pack or any full size products you purchase from our online store are appropriate for your use. Additionally, we suggest you do a patch test and dab a little product on a small part of your skin before using on a larger area.
I just wanted one Glam Pack - why have I been charged again?
Your Sample Bar Glam Pack is an ongoing subscription service, much like a magazine subscription. As such, you do not have the option of purchasing just one pack - when you sign up as a Sample Bar member, you agree to the setup of a recurring payment profile, which is set to deduct future membership fees on the first of the month for that month's box without you having to manually do anything. This will continue unless you decide to cancel and if you would ever like to cancel your Monthly Sample Bar membership, the normal procedure is email email@example.com. Please see below for more details on cancellation.

Why was I just charged $1?
