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:

Ohhh awesome!  Years ago I got a sample of La Mer in store and just about died when I heard the price.  I'd like to try it again now that I am older and could actually afford to buy it.  I do think it's a really good product.  Let us know how you like it!

New yeses today from Paula's Choice and Red Flower :-)

 

The only bad thing about this is that I know I'm going to fall in love with so many things I absolutely have to buy!

I sent ones to L'Occitane, Marc Jacobs, Dr.Hauschka, Nia24, and Juice Beauty last night. I still need to email Living Proof as that is the only one I haven't done yet. Instant yes from L'Occitane and Dr.Hauschka. Still waiting on the others. I also got a yes from Dr.Brandt which I emailed several days ago.

If I remember correctly, the Ren samples came from New Jersey or somewhere on the east coast.

Thanks. I just got a your samples are on their way message from them.  I only wondered because the e-mail response was a UK address.  But they said yes :-)

I was wondering the same thing when I got the e-mail.  I got Ren & Vbeaute on the same day.

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

So are you guys just sending an email via the brand's websites and straight up asking for samples? I took the Mario Badescu survey but it doesn't offer samples, did you guys just email them and ask after taking the survey?

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

You take the survey and Mario Badescu will email you asking if you want samples. If you fill it out and explain your problems they have to follow up with you directly and it will take much longer for them to respond to you. Most of these you just email the site in the appropriate place, all of them are different.

L'occitane will send you samples if you contact them? Really? That sounds awesome!

Just so all your ladies know, Dr. Brandt sends out samples! :smileyvery-happy:

They sent me about 8 samples, all things i'll be happy to try, but it looks like two of the samples busted :smileysad: But they were my least fav things out of the bunch so it's okay! :smileyvery-happy:

Thanks for telling us. How long did it take for you to get a reply?

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

I think it took around 3 business days before I got a response.

Well today I got free samples from Murad. They sent me two foil packs. One is for Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moister for eyes and the other is Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture for face. They also send me a 1.5 oz Essential C cleanser. I guess I cannot complain about free samples but it is funny how they send some people more than others. They also send a coupon for 20% off and free shipping from Sept 19 - Oct 9. Promo Code = EVENT.

I got my Mario Badescu today. I'm unsure and wonder if they will send me two things of samples. I filled out the survey twice because the first time they never answered me. The second time they responded right away and said I should be getting samples. However two days after that they responded to my first questionnaire (which I filled out in detail so I got different results). I'm going to give it a few days and see if another packet doesn't arrive in the mail. As of right now I have

-Ceramide Eye Gel

-Collagen Moisturizer (SPF 15)

-Enzyme Cleansing Gel

-Flower & Tonic Mask

-Seaweed Night Cream

-Special Cucumber Lotion

-Strawberry Face Scrub

 

 

What I was recommended to get on the first one. Only two things are the same so it would be nice if they sent me this one as well!

 

-Enzyme Cleansing Gel (same)

-Special Cucumber Lotion (same)

-Hyaluronic Eye Cream

-Aloe moisturizer SPF 15

-Drying Mask

-Healing & Soothing Mask

-Glycolic Foaming Cleanser

-Drying Lotion

I decided to do the survey again (for my address in Canada) and got slightly different results than last time.

 

Enzyme Cleansing Gel, Aloe Lotion, Hyaluronic Eye Cream, Flower & Tonic Mask, Hydro-Moisturizer With Vitamin C, Drying Lotion, and Strawberry Face Scrub (everything is the same except the Aloe Lotion and Flower & Tonic Mask as last time, I got recommended Cucumber Cleansing Lotion and Special Mask For Oily Skin). Oh well, still excited to try everything.

Today in the mail, I received a sample of the Korres Wild Rose 24-Hour Moisturizing & Brightening Cream. I think I filled out a form on Facebook to receive it. It's the same size as Sephora would give out for 100 points (the same size as the Greek Yogurt Sleeping Facial 100 point sample was). I am not really into floral scents (aside from roses) and this sample came at the perfect time as my normal moisturizer (The Body Shop Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream) has almost run out and I am returning the Origins GinZing Moisturizer because my skin broke out (not sure if that was the cause) but my face is on the dry side at the moment (I don't have sensitive skin, never break out, and have near perfect skin so to get some sort of rash on my face and body is puzzling to me).

 

So, getting this sample was a blessing :smileyhappy:

samples 2.pngHere are the samples i have gotten so far. There is another Vbeaute tube that isn't in this picture because I gave it to my Mom and can't find it. It's the same size as the other two though.

Wow! That's amazing. What have you tried and liked/disliked?
