What companies have you gotten samples from?

I just wanna ask what companies give out free samples when you contact them. I only know of Mario Badescu and L'occitane. :smileyhappy:

 

Who doesn't love free samples anyway? :smileyhappy:

I am waiting on samples from Mario Badescu, Ren, and l'Occitane.

This week I got a foundation sample from Jane Iredale, 4 samples from Murad (the lady I emailed with asked me to pick 3 of these 7, but I ended up getting 4. :smileyhappy:

1. Clarifying Wipes (1ct.)
2. Age-Balancing Night Cream (this one was a little foil packet)
3. Anti-Aging Acne Moisturizer SPF 20 | PA+++
4. Essential-C Day Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF 30 | PA+++
5. Oil-Free Sunblock SPF 30 (oil free = love) 
6. Overnight Soothing Gel (for my husband's red, dry skin, haha)
7. Acne & Wrinkle Reducer (bonus!)

and from Everyday Minerals I got 7 samples of foundation/blush/finishing powder for 1c plus shipping, but I added some extra because as mxcx said, it's for a good cause! :smileyhappy: The packets feel like there's almost nothing inside, but that stuff goes a long way! These are going to let me try out their products for a good long while!

I forget if I have anything else on the way but this was an awesome idea! Thanks CzaCee!

Murad agreed to send me samples. Ren, VBeaute and DermOrganic.

That is awesome! Can you post photos of what you got so we can see? Thanks!

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

Thank you so much for the idea! I've started emailing companies, this is a really great way to try out new products, especially since I'm a college student with a limited budget

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

I emailed a bunch of these for samples and Murad as well. I guess they aren't able to give out so many samples online as in Sephora stores but the lady who emailed me recommended I go to Sephora for more samples, lol. 

 

I was hoping for Fresh or Korres but they don't send samples. :smileysad: I'm excited to try some new foundations though! Thanks for the ideas, ladies!!

I also emailed Jane Iredale and they replied and they're sending some foundation samples. Also Dr. Hauscka Skin Care. Love itttttttttttttttt.

Murad is very good with samples, at least at the sephora closest to my home there is always a murad and/or origins rep there, 

 

i took so many murad samples home and they were like large sized deluxe samples, she even gave me 2 or 3 of the same sample which was nice.

 

the girl from origins gave me some scrubs ln little plastic bowls which were nice too

I just emailed Ren Skincare a while ago and they have already replied. They said that they are gonna send me some samples. They're sending me samples for my combination and blemish prone skin. Soooooo excited. :smileyhappy:

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

Everyday Minerals sends out samples of their bases if you pay for shipping. They also ask you if you want to donate for the samples though, and ALL the proceeds go towards the Wilderness Preservation Plan. You don't have to donate, but I always do because it's for a good cause and they're not keeping any of the money for themselves. (:

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

Oh, and by the way, I don't own a blog. I just basically write to companies I wish to try their products. :smileyhappy:

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

Great board! I have given comments to various grocery companies and they often send a coupon for something free after. It never occurred to me to do it with cosmetics though! 

 

Once at the grocery store I had a bunch of these coupons with my normal grocery purchase and the cashier had to get a manager to authorize my transaction because  I "saved too much money!" I felt like I was on extreme couponers, hahaha. It was like 84% savings on the whole thing.

@Missie772 - I just took the skin assessment quiz on their site then after a few days, they sent me an email asking me if I wanna get samples from them. :smileyhappy:

 

 

With L'occitane, I went to their site. Went over to their Customer Service/Contact Us and I wrote that i wanna try their products through sampling and they replied and said yes and sent me samples for free. :smileyhappy:

Thanks girl! I am going to try some of these tips and tricks!!!

I had no idea that you could do that! Mind if I ask how exactly did you get free samples from Mario Badescu? I am interested in trying out a new skincare line!

Go to their website and take their Skincare quiz.  You will also provide contact information to them within the quiz.  Within a couple days, they will send an email asking if you would like samples of the products the quiz suggested for you.  It's such a great program.  Mine should be mailed shortly.  I can't wait!
