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:

My favorite samples were from Murad and Ren. Both provided radiance boosting samples. Ren gave me two deluxe micro polish cleansers, two deluxe lactic renewal masks and two foil samples of AHA concentrate. I am planning on purchasing. 

 

Dr. Hauschka provided a nice deluxe sample of cleansing cream and foils of a mask, day cream and eye cream. 

 

My Mario Badescu samples broke me out. I'm giving them to my mom.

La Mer is one big liar. I emailed them about trying out their product and this is an email i got back from them.

 

"Thank you for taking the time to email us at La Mer Online. We appreciate your interest in La Mer and understand your reluctance to invest in them without trying them first. Regrettably, samples are not available from La Mer Online for general distribution upon request.

 

Since you are unable to visit a retail location, please be assured that it is our policy to accept returns or exchanges. If for any reason you are not satisfied with a product purchased Online, simply return the unused portion to us for exchange or refund.

We hope you will continue to visit us at La Mer Online. If we can be of further assistance, please let us know. If you would like to speak with one of our representatives at any time, please call 1.866.850.9400."

 

Judging by this thread, they are lying big time... I'm not thrilled :smileyfrustrated:

I requested La Mer samples in Harvey Nichols (Dubai) last year, and the SA gave me a whole bag full. I ws mega shocked!

They wont send if emailed. We all registered on their website, with our addresses, and waited a month+ and received the 2-piece sample in the mail without prior notification.

I tried signing up with several emails accounts to actual get the free samples and NEVER got mailed the samples which people here at BT received.  Which really ticks me off because I've spent thousands of dollars on jars over the decade buying the actual cream and they are very random on who they send the samples to.   Oh well  I just get a mini jar sample when I go to the counter at Saks or receive a bunch when I buy it again so whatever.

I don't think anyone has mentioned them, but if you contact Marula they will send a sample of their marula oil. sent for samples from Mario Badescu months ago and still haven't received them! :smileysad: I'm still really happy with all od the samples I have received! I contacted Becca and while they weren't able to send me samples I sent them a picture of me and one of the ladies gave me a few recommendations. They're not in the picture but I also received some from L'Occitane and Living Proof.

Diane15, annec322, MlleCC: me too! They must process all samples at a given time.  I'm super excited to try it.  Curious to see what all the hype is about.

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

LOL I was just coming onto share that I finally got my LaMer too! hehe I guess you're right about the processing them all! :smileyhappy: Haven't tried them out yet, but I will soon.

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.

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

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.

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

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

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?

ivyxox

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.
