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:

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:

Do you mind listing what companies you received things from?

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. =)

Companies are really strange about who they'll send things to and who they won't! I've gotten some no's that other people on here have posted they received things from as well.

It is so weird how some people are yes and some people are no.  Make Up Forever told me no even though they told other people yes.

 

Clarins told me yes right away and even offered to send me a lipstick I didn't ask for (asked about gloss).

 

And I highly doubt I'm saying anything all that different in my e-mails.

I am interested in seeing more photos of what you get! Especially from Clarins because I was actually interested in them!!! Boo... oh well! Maybe I can take some from my sister whenever I visit her over Christmas break because she uses the Clarins line almost exclusively.

I don't know why, but it's like the ones I'm most likely to buy always tell me no too.  It's like they KNOW I really want them.

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

Wow!! They were really generous with you! I only received two small samples from Dr. Hauschka.

You got so much from Ren!  I got 2 bottles.  And I see Dr. H in there, and Paula's Choice, Derma e, Wailea (or however you sepll that).  Who else did you get from?

 

I got a huge mailbox full today too.  Will post pictures tomorrow!

The rest is Clarins and DermOrganic! The little Clarins toners are SO cute- and I've been really wanting to try their toners!

 

So exciting, I am definitely motivated to keep contacting companies! Hope I fall in love with some of these products!

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

I must say, I was one sad puppy today when I realized no mail was being delivered today!!

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

Me too!  Luckily I realized it yesterday or I'd have been very unhappy today.

how do you start out getting free samples?

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

Just pick a company you're interested in, google for their website, find the 'contact us' option on the website, and send them an e-mail asking for samples.  The companies mentioned in this thread are more likely to say yes, but you might get a no from companies who have told other people yes and you might get a yes from companies who have told other people no.  The only way to know is to ask!

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

I do have a beauty blog, but all of these samples have been requested as a consumer and not for the blog.  I will review them all, though!  It's SirenPrincessBeauty if you want to google it.  Just starting out so I need some good things to start reviewing.  I've got a lot of make-up palettes, but I want a bit of variety.

 

I had a vacation week last week and just wrote everyone I could think of all at once.  I do currently buy a very expensive facial line (Jan Marini), so if any of these companies can impress me, I'll switch and spend money with them!  And I'm looking for a new perfume to ask for for Christmas (although I now think it's going to be perfumes!).  And I spend a small fortune on make-up just because I love it.  So none of these samples are going to go to waste.
