Sample Packet Challenge

I don't know about you ladies but I have at least 562 sample packets in my possession.  In the "Project 10 Pan" spirit I thought we could challenge ourselves to see how many samples we could use up in a month.

 

I'm already at 2 with the Naked Body Butter and Hourglass foundation samples I used this morning.  Anyone want to "compete" with me?

I started strong and then slowly dropped off as the month continued.  I got through 16 either deluxe or regular samples.

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

Too many samples. PLus trying different things all the time isn't good for anyones skin. I just add them when i sell on ebay

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

I was doing so well... and then I started slacking because my skin got super dry and flakey (probably from switching from one thing or another daily)...

 

I used 12 after my husband threw out about 8-10. So 20... not bad! I wanted to get to 50 packets in a month!!!

Yeah, I didn't use a whole lot of skincare samples for that reason.  I would've started breaking out.  I usually try to accumulate at least a few of the same sample so I can use the same product for more than a few days.

Oh! Thanks for that little tip! I will accumulate a few of the same skincare products and use it for a few days so I don't constantly switch!

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

I was terrible. Besides a bunch of DDG pads, I think I used maybe less than 10 sample packets :smileysad:

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

Only 5 days left!  How's everyone doing?

hehe, i gave away literally 50+ in the TSB but am slacking on using things up myself.

 

I am going to count today or tomorrow I hope and post a count for October :smileyvery-happy:.

 

I perhaps mistakenly included all my samples, even if they weren't packets (i.e. little tubes or vials), too!

Okay I used about 20-25 samples in September (I lost count darnit, but that's pretty close).  Several of those were deluxe, not just foil packets.

 

I have only used like 5 in October though, I need to step it up :smileyvery-happy:.  My goal was to use 30 in October and I am way behind!

My goal was 10 and so far I am at 8! I didn't realize that I had low balled my goal.  So midway into the challenge I am upping the ante to 18 sample packets!

I am slacking at the moment - mostly because I am using some in-store-made sample clams, and some deluxe samples.  They are taking forever to use up :smileywink:, so I am down on sample use and foil packette use!

 

But I did recently use a Kiehl's no shine hydrator sample packette!

 

I am working on D-Scar by Kate Somerville, Clinique Spot treatment, Shishedo Ibuki Moisturizer, FAB and KORRES Cleansers, and a few other deluxe samples.

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

I've used up 5/10 Algenist and an Ole Henrickson oil. The Algenist got sting-y and made my face rough, it's working well... so I'm slacking off for a few days so I can use my regular size Boots No7 Glycolic Peel. Then I'll use the other 5. This thread is a great motivation. But I'm getting a slew more samples from Shu Uemura with recent orders so still they are backing up! The Ole oil in a foil packet was a MESS, but I liked the product.

Ew I super disliked the Ole oil! :smileyhappy:  Smelled like fish, messy, hard to apply, yuck. hehe

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

I could definitely smell the vitamin in it! Since it was a foil, it all just sloshed out so quick, rub it face, hands, neck, arms, lol, good thing my hair was back! Then I let it sit while in the bath and toweled myself gently. The smell was gone and my skin was velvety. So i know Rose hip oil and I can get along well, good to know! I don't think I'll buy it though because I'm in love with Korres Greek Yogurt sleeping facial. Much nicer.

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

Well, that sounds awesome when you put it that way!  Great bath idea!
