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?

Here is my latest if it helps you:

 

"Dear Jane Iredale Cosmetics,

 

I was reading many positive comments/reviews of Jane Iredale on BeautyTalk forum, and I'm looking for a new brand to try a few items.

 

I am interested in two or three of your products and I'm wondering samples are available?

 

Eye Gloss - Champagne silk (I love to smooth on a quick creamy layer of eye product in the morning for a suick and easy make up look - would this work?)

 

PurePressed Blush - I'm looking for a cool blue-based pink color. I currently use Nars Gaiety but I'd like to try Jane for something more natural.

 

I was also interested in the Just Kissed lip and cheek stain but I wasn't sure if that was still available or which colors (i wear cool pinks).

If any of these are available in samples, please let me know! :smileyhappy:

 

My address is:

ADDRESS

Thanks so much in advance, and happy holidays!

 

Best,

 

Nicole"

i need that too! so I know hot to correctly ask for a free sample and get it without them thinking I'm just taking advantage of getting things for free.

I sent an email yesterday to pretty much every company posted on this thread and so far everyone has said yes! I have received replies from 8 companies so far. I can't wait to receive them!

For the Mario Badescu samples, how long did it take for them to send them out to you all (USA folks)? I took the survey, forgot about it, then got an email from them today saying they wanted to mail me samples and to confirm my mailing address.

I would say about a week from the time I submitted online to receiving an email with recommendations and to click to confirm to another email, direct from a person, verifying information to receiving in my mailbox.

 

It came via presorted first class...pretty sure..would need to look at envelope.

So All I have to do is email the companies asking for free samples?

Some companies have a sample link direct on their website. Others just email saying you would like to try and do they have samples. Some will say go to a local store, others may ask for more information regarding your skin.

You just email these companies and tell them that you would like to try their product but don't live near one of their stores. Also say a little about yourself.

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

If  you have sensitive skin etc, you can also add that you need to try products first :smileyhappy: Also show interest in the company, or go for a specific type of samples, this might help!

I wish I did not know about the La Mer samples, because I have fallen in love with the moisturizer!

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

I got those La mer samples in nordstrom too. I thought it was generous of them considering I only bought a  handcream but I guess they do give it away :-) Thanks for sharing!

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

Made an account with La Mer last night! Ohhhh I hope they send me something! I have always wanted to try anything from this brand!
