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?

I finally received my La Mer samples today...and honestly, I don't think it's for me.  From the tiny bit of the cream that I tried, I was just so put off by the heavy texture that I can't imagine ever using this all over my face.  I would definitely be willing to trade this for any deluxe samples from REN's radiance line, Omorovicza, Elemental Herbology, Eve Lom, or any high-end skincare brands if anyone is interested.

Got mine yesterday, haven't tried yet. Don't think they will be for me but maybe my mom will like it.

I just got my La Mer samples too!  I always wondered if a $100 something cream was any better...we shall see :smileyhappy:

My mom used to use it so I used hers for a while too :smileytongue: I think it depends on your age and what skincare you have used before. If you use all the high-end brands all the time such as La Prairie or sisley, you might not find this cream to be too special. I think my skin feels smooth the next morning when I used it at night, but my mom only thinks it's ok. She's over 50 though, so I guess it might not work for very mature skin.

After almost three months of waiting I finally got my La Mer samples! Can't wait to test them out.

Just wondering how long does it take for them to ship the samples to you?

i have gotten samples from Mario Badescu and origins . i emailed guerlain and koh gen do , koh gen do never replied so i ordered their foundation sample kit which was a big waste of money you don't get to really pick your colors so none of them matched and also the hydrating formula was super dry! guerlain replied by saying go to a counter which is why i emailed them because i don't have one near me lol

i got a lot of samples from Mario Badescu but i didn't really like any , origins sent me a face wash when i was looking for a moisturizer but it turned out to be a pretty good face wash .

i also just sent an email to illamasqua hoping i get a reply there.

does anyone know of any one who will send just makeup samples?

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

Illamasqua sent me two pots of skin base and a deluxe sample of hydra veil. KGD sent me 4 pots of aqua foundation along with some skincare and primer. Jane Iredale and clarins also provide make up samples. With Clarins, I think you need to list the products that you are interested, otherwise they will just say no.

Clarins sent me a lipstick sample card but has told some other people no.

Jane Iredale is just makeup. Received nice sized deluxe samples.

Has anyone written to Eve Lom for samples?  If so, may I ask how long did it take for your samples to arrive?  I got a response pretty quickly from them that they would send me samples of the product that I was interested in trying...but that was three weeks ago.  I sent them a polite e-mail just to confirm that the samples should be on their way, and they told me that it would take awhile since they were sending it from the U.K.  But surely, even international snail mail these days shouldn't take this long, no?

I emailed them several weeks ago also. No samples yet.

1622166_294952993990211_312759693_n.jpgI just got my first batch of samples from Acure, Ren and Paula's Choice! PC also sent me a "20 Beauty Myths Busted!" book and stickers to label my samples so I know when to use them. Acure had all their samples packaged in a cute, blue, mesh bag. I can't wait to try out my new goods! Argan and marula oils, day and night creams, face washes, eye and face serums, toners...The list goes on! And I'm still awaiting samples from at least 8 other companies. *Big googly eyes*

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

Thanks for this wonderful idea and all companies' generosity :smileyvery-happy:

Even though becca is not able to provide me any samples, but their CS is just wonderful :smileyhappy:

Here is what I got :

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

I spent most of Saturday writing emails to tons of different companies, but of course it was the weekend, so not a lot of responses back. Clarins told me that I need to find a local makeup counter to get samples from, but Omorovicza wrote me back this morning and the CS lady sounded just thrilled that I was interested in their line. She's sending me a bunch of samples, eye creams, night creams, serums, etc. I sent her my address and thanked her, and not even 30 seconds later, she wrote back again to tell me thanks for my interest again, and if I have any questions, here's her own email extension to get in touch with her personally. That really, really made me excited, as I love when CS adds their own personal touch like that!

What do you select when sending Murad an email, (site feedback, change of shipment request, product feedback, or submit your story?) Also, should you include your address in the initial email?

I think that I selected "Product Feedback" because there wasn't a more pertinent one. 

 

I always include my shipping address in the initial email.

I received deluxe-sized samples from Murad (the 4.5 oz. cleanser was especially generous). Besides the cleanser, I received two lightening serums and a day moisturizer. 

 

I answered the Mario Badescu quiz, and received a cleansing soap, face scrub, face mask, day moisturizer and a foil sample of eye cream. 

 

I signed up with La Mer two weeks ago, but nothing yet.

Hmm, I think Mario Badescu sent me another package with the same items, except a toner substituted for the eye cream foil sample.

If you don't mind my asking, but what did you tell Murad?
