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:

Oh okay, no biggie though, since I do have one near me, just easier if they can send them because we don't have to make the trip :smileyhappy: And the only thing I dislike about getting samples in store is that I feel like I have to use it up right away since they're not in a package, but just the sample containers.

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

I just emailed some of these companies you guys mentioned. It seems as though skincare brands are more willing to send samples as I emailed some cosmetics brands awhile ago and were turned down by all. Vbeaute responded right away and is sending samples. Caudalie says to visit Sephora :smileytongue: If anyone wants to try Glamglow, they sell a sample packet for $12 on their site. I think you get 2-3 packets of both the white and black. Much cheaper than buying the full jar if you aren't sure you like it. I'll update if I hear from any other companies.

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

I have recently gotten samples from DermOrganic, REN, Juice Beauty, Dr. Harushka, Koh Gen Do, Acuru. 

Tres Pure & 100% Pure wouldn't send me samples, but gave me codes to use on-line.

I haven't heard anything back from DermOrganic, Ren sent me some samples and Juice Beauty said they would as well. Dr. Harushka sent me some stuff and I haven't heard anything from Koh Gen Do, no response at all!

I just emailed Ren, and DermOrganic, but I emailed Koh Gen Do a week ago and haven't gotten a response! 

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

Same with Koh Gen Do :/ a couple of days ago a girl posted a pic of all these samples they sent her and I contacted them but have yet to hear anything. Hourglass said no as well.

So i've been contacting a few companies but only one has agreed to send some. I contacted Murad, Ole Henrikson and Origins. They all declined, or said they weren't able to send out samples. But i did email First Aid Beauty and they said they would send a few packettes of the Ultra Repair Cream and their Cleanser! So i'm excited to try a couple of new things from FAB!

That's so weird! I got yes from Murad and OH no from Origins and no from FAB. I really wanted to try out FAB they told me to go to my local Sephora.

I would rather get a yes from Murad than FAB.lol

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.

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!
