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?

Murad does send samples. Do the chat and get the 'right' person :smileywink:

 

However it is possible they may not have any right now, of what you're wanting.

Even to Canada?

Just realized Murad Canada uses a distributor Balley Direct, orders are sent from within CA, rather than Murad handling the requests, orders etc. This is probably why samples aren't around.

 

A thought, ask Murad USA and see what they say.

I emailed Embryolisse to say I wanted to try the famous lait concentrate and they sent me a lovely set of foils of just about every product they make (serious like 20 products, and several of some of the foils), in a pretty little organza bag.  It was really nice I was impressed!

Gonna check if I emailed. I think I might have. Sadly many said no since I'm in Canada

Yes they're amazing! I got 30 foils and none of them were the same. It's going to be awesome

Does this mean they said YES and sent you samples?  Or that these are just the companies you messaged? :smileyhappy:

I don't know if this helps anyone, but I've been contacting companies asking for samples for a week, I'm OCD and I just needed some order in my life right now...


The left column is people who have yet to respond and when I contacted them, the middle is my Yes column with the bottom being what I've actually received so far, and the right column is for No's, with the bottom Other category being No's just for my skin needs since I am allergic to lavender.
