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:

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

@violalea - you should. i always make it a point to say that I have read good reviews regarding their products or that a friend of mine has recommended their products to me. i also tell them that i wanna be able to try some of their samples before committing to buying the full sized counterparts. i also make it a point to tell them a about my skin type and condition so that no samples will be put to waste. :smileyhappy:

 

with Jane Iredale, I told them that I have tried their bb cream and bought it in its full size and asked if they have other samples for their other products. they got back at me saying that they will send me 6 lipstick samples. :smileyhappy:

 

so yea, i hope those tips will help you out. :smileyhappy:

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

yup. i'm surprised to know that so many companies are so generous. i am surprised the most by Jane Iredale. coz they sent me 3 foundation sample, 2 bb cream samples and 6 lipstick samples. how cool is that? :smileyhappy:

You are so good at it and they must like you a lot :smileywink: I remember 1 or 2 months ago I wrote to Murad and they sent me 2 foil package samples and a catalog haha. I am not good at asking for samples I guess. That was first and last for me. But seeing you getting so many samples, maybe I should try writing again :smileyhappy:

Thanks for this thread! I'll post pictures if I get anything

 

I recommend the Mario Badescu samples to everyone! I ordered them a while ago, they are personnalized and good sized. You have to take their test and wait for an email offering samples.

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!

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

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

rikkie

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!!

oh what a bummer. I was hoping Korres would. I love their skincare.

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

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

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:
