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:

Fresh on their website say's they don't do samples without order. Some sites specifically list it.

You got Chanel samples by contacting them? O_O

Chanel can be rather generous with giving out samples. I think it may also vary on who you speak to, but I'd imagine you shouldn't have a hard time getting samples. I used to have this sample of their amazing eye cream for the longest time, but I have since ran out and $400 is too much for one product. I do miss that thing dearly, though.

samples.jpgMy samples. Living Proof actually sent me two separate envelopes of samples. Juice Beauty was a disappointment. The rest are quite generous.

It was just the 'contact us' link, advice.  I'll PM you the e-mail address.

Clarins, L'Occitane, Anne Semonin (they shipped to me from Paris!), and John Masters Organics.

 

I got a new yes from Reviva.

Oh wow- Clarins has given you quite a few great samples! I'm so thrilled to hear that they give them out; I love their skincare products.

So i'm looking for a new skincare routine... i contacted Murad, and this is the response i got... 

 

"We are happy to hear of your interest into Murad products. At this point in time, we unfortunately only send samples with an order. I know it can be tough to take a plunge with something new, but if you do please keep in mind we offer a 60 day money back guarantee on the products + taxes even if the products are used to the end"

 

They only send samples along with orders huh? This thread proves otherwise lol

I contacted them and am receiving samples...that person must have had the wrong script up :smileywink:

"even if the products are used to the end"

 

Does this mean that you can fully use up a product and still get money back? I feel like that is either an amazing return policy (and terrible corporate practice) or horrible wording on their part.

@FireSpinner I was thinking about this & I wonder if it is because you are in Canada.  I just got my samples from Murad last month & after I got my yes response, my BFF sent a sample request & got some too.

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:

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

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:
