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?

Yeah, I've seriously conspired pointing that out. Hourglass has irritated me more than anything. It was a brand I was eager to try and now I kind of don't even want to do business with them. I could care less if I get four foil samples and someone else gets deluxe tubes. I just want to try it. I have yet to find an amazing liquid foundation and thought they would be a good option. With sensitive skin I don't put anything on it without testing it first. I could go to Sephora but it's about an hour away and I hate going all that way only to ask for a sample and not even buy anything. Not all the samples I have got I am going to run out and buy. However there have been a few I definitely want to purchase and I would have never of known that without trying them first.

I feel the same way about Hourglass myself.  And foundation you really do have to try and see how the color wears on you all day to see which color might be right.  One that looks like a match right away in the store could be totally off later in the day.  And it's not like I can go in and say 'can you give me a sample of color A, color B, and color C so I can see which one is right for me?  And, no, I don't want to buy anything."

Few more samples over the last few days!

 


For those interested, the Miss Jessie's line offers two samples if you pay $1 shipping. I've tried a few of their products through Birchbox and really loved these for my curly, frizz prone hair! These are very generous samples too- most are 1oz, a few are 0.42oz. If you can put them into another container, they can last you quite a while! I got an additional third sample I didn't request too!

I got double the amount of samples from Nia.  I got probably the same 4 pack as you, but then I got 5 additional individual packets stuck in too.

Someone in the thread earlier got big deluxe sized products from Nia! Funny how we all get different things :smileyhappy:

It really has to be who gets the email and who stuffs the samples.

Thanks to this thread I'm now getting free samples from Murad and Mario Badescu. So thanks ladies for making this thread and providing info for how and where to get them :smileyhappy:

Yay I got the samples today! But......

- I asked L'occitane about skincare but got 4 samples for body lotion.

- I asked Dr. Brandt who mailed me 3 packet samples and one of it leaked.

 

....o.O......hmmm, oh well.

I got Dr. Brandt today too.  I got 7 different samples - Pores No More Vacuum Cleaner, Pores No More Anti-Aging Mattifying Lotion, 2 Microderabrasion Exfoliating Face Cream, 2 BB Matte in 2 different shades.  One other one that leaked as well & I can't remember what it was.  Plus a code for 15% off my entire purchase online.  Yeah!

Did it take either of you a while to hear back from Dr. Brandt?

I got a quick no from then but then asked follow-up questions and got a yes. I ended up with ... 6 samples.

 

They told me they only send out samples to 'sensitive skin'.

Dr.Brandt replied pretty fast altho....really? 3 packet samples? if you are gonna spend money sending me samples....3 of them?

They emailed me back the same day.

Thanks ladies! Heard back from Dr. Brandt today with a very confusing email. They said they'd be happy to send samples, but did not ask for an address and then said that they didn't have samples for oily/blemish prone skin and to go to Sephora! I'm going to reply with asking about other lines!

That's strange.  I told them I had oily skin with some emerging wrinkles. I said I was hoping to rind products that would help control oil, but also address my emerging wrinkles.  I thought they were fairly generous with my samples.

Coming home today was like Christmas, ladies!!!

 

This was the box (!) from USPS waiting on my porch when I got home, minus a few bills. This also has my Ipsy package and Birchbox order which fluffs it out a bit. Don't worry, I erased my addresses :smileywink:

 

And the haul:

I love checking the mail & seeing a full mailbox of goodies! :smileyhappy:

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

I emailed Clarins and they told me that they didn't give out samples, even though I stated specifically that my friend got samples last week. Oh well!

 

GREAT HAUL though!!!

Yeah, I got the same brush off from Hourglass. Boohoo..... =\

 

My favorite is still the KGD sample haul, I asked a while back but recently wrote a email to thank them. =)
