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?

Mine was from Charlie as well and it was a no. It's really sad because they isolate potential customers by doing it this way. I'm a person who won't buy it if I can't try it. I'm sure there will be some people who will even avoid a brand because they show sporadic favoritism. I can't see how this is smart business wise. 

 

I've been wondering that if you are subscribed to a newsletter, or if they have you on record of purchasing products, if some companies aren't quicker to say yes to you?

That sounds like a good idea! I really do agree with the other ladies on here saying it depends on who answers your email.

I was thinking the same thing! Charlie said no to me twice

I was denied from hourglass :smileysad:. They told me Sephora gives out samples and I told them Sephora doesn't carry what I want to try they just said hopefully in the future Sephora will carry more of their products.

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

Here are samples that have come in for me recently! Once I gave the companies my mailing address, they arrived very quickly. I am waiting on Koh Gen Doh and Juice Beauty. I gave them my address yesterday. I never heard back from L' Occitane or Ojon. Carol's Daughter, La Roche Posay, Hourglass, and Avalon Organics all said no.foto.JPG

Hourglass said no to me as well. I tried some really random ones and got turned down as I expected. SKII,Shiseido, Josie Maran, and Tarte. I was asking just to see but wasn't surprised by the answer. 

 

Yes from Ren,OH, Murad, Jane, and Vbeaute. 

 

Ones that have yet to answer (some are random). JFR,Mario,Koh Gen Doh, Perfekt, Amazing Cosmetics, Bite Beauty, and Obsesive Compulsive Cosmetics. I really wish OCC has samples my Sephora doesn't carry them  Bite or Amazing Cosmetics. I hate buying things without swatching them.

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

Koh Gen Do just got back to me with a Yes. That makes me very happy since I am really interested in them.

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

So lets compare:

-Ole Henrikson: I got only 3 foil package samples

-Ren: I got 3 small tubes

-Living proof: I got frizz shampoo&conditioner, Restore Shampoo&conditioner, frizz nourishing styling cream, restore targeted repair cream. Living proof loves me :smileywink:

 

Others:

-Murad: 2 foil samples

-FAB : 2 foil samples

-L'occitane: 4 or 5 foil samples

-Jane Iredale: 3 foundation jars, 3 premade primers and 1 small tube of something.

 

So I love Living proof and Jane Iredale cause they love me :smileywink:

 

For Mario Badescu, I think everyone got the same 6-7 samples.

 

I have not emailed demalogica yet. I will need to do that.

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

I'll take a picture once I receive all my shipments. So far they have been really nice to me. My Murad samples actually came in a big box. This confused me as I was expecting foil samples. So it was a nice surprise!

 

Murad 

-1.5 fl. oz. Essential-C Cleanser

-.33 fl. oz. Pore & Line Minimizing Hydrator

-.25 fl. oz. Post Acne Spot Lightening Gel

-.125 fl. oz. Acne & Wrinkle Reducer

 

Ren

- 0.17 fl. oz. Glycol Lactic radiance renewal mask

- 0.17 fl. oz. Invisible Pores Detox Mask

- 0.17 fl. oz. Mayblossom T-zone control Cleansing Gel

- 0.1 fl. oz. Satin Perfection BB Cream 

 

Jane Iredale

-Amazing Base SPF 20 Ivory

-Amazing Base SPF 20 Light Beige

-Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream BB1

 

I feel like I'm doing better than expected! So far anything specific I have asked for they have sent me. I did ask about the Jane Iredale lipsticks though. She said they aren't doing samples of those right now because they are coming out with new shades and formulas. She told me to check back later. I'm hoping my other samples are this nice.

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

Awesome neko333!!!!!!! I was about to ask you what did you say exactly haha exactly in your mail to let Murad sent so many things to you cause they only sent me 2 foil samples but then I remember it really depends on the person who answer our email :smileyhappy: cause sometimes I got more than others too. So I should feel happy :smileyhappy:.

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

Most of mine looked something like-

 

Is there any way to get samples of Murad products? I'm looking for new skincare and am very interested in this brand. I appreciate your time. Thank You.

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

Thanks neko333. I will try that again in a few months :smileyhappy:. Enjoy your samples!!

I was expecting the Living Proof Thickening Shampoo as well because the rep told me that I would like it, but maybe she forgot to include it. I look forward to trying the samples anyway. I know some people got a no from them. :smileyhappy:

I really wanted to write to Korres, but someone said they said no, and I cannot seem to find their contact info. :/

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

I filled out the survey on the Mario Badescu website a couple of days ago and received an email today saying they want to send me free samples (some may not be available as samples).

 

They recommended:

Enzyme Cleansing Gel

Cucumber Cleansing Lotion

Hyaluronic Eye Cream

Special Mask For Oily Skin

Hydro-Moisturizer With Vitamin C

Drying Lotion

Strawberry Face Scrub

 

Hoping the face scrub is available as a sample since I love trying new face scrubs and am sure this one smells really good. Also hoping to try the special mask for oily skin. I very rarely get acne of any kind but interested in trying the drying lotion as I know it's one of the more popular products.

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

OH got back to me and I have samples on the way. 

So far I've tried REN,OH, Murad, JFR, Mario, Jane, Koh Gen Doh, and Hourglass all with in the last few hours. 

 

REN,OH, Murad, and Jane are sending me samples of things I would like to try. The others have yet to reply but it's been less than a day. I'm surprised how quick they contacted me though. 

 

JFR is Just For Redheads and they make my favorite mascara. They make off shades of reds and browns for more natural looks. Not to mention I love what they do to my lashes! I also have several of their lip kits which work well for me because they are intended to look great on red heads. I've been interested in their foundation though which is why I contacted them. I will be surprised if they say yes.

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

I Emailed Murad and all they told me was that they don't give samples but if i buy something and i don't like it i can always exchange it, which is weird because i know alot of you got emails back from them & samples.

 

But i emailed Mario Badescu and they said they'll send me samples of a whole bunch of things, it took like two buisness days for them to reply, and its been a week and i havent recieved anything yet, so i guess the shipping is slow
