Sample Packet Challenge

I don't know about you ladies but I have at least 562 sample packets in my possession.  In the "Project 10 Pan" spirit I thought we could challenge ourselves to see how many samples we could use up in a month.

 

I'm already at 2 with the Naked Body Butter and Hourglass foundation samples I used this morning.  Anyone want to "compete" with me?

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

I'm doomed to sampledom, I fear...anyone else tempted?

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

I'm getting it for sure Smiley Happy

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

I am slacking at the moment - mostly because I am using some in-store-made sample clams, and some deluxe samples.  They are taking forever to use up Smiley Wink, so I am down on sample use and foil packette use!

 

But I did recently use a Kiehl's no shine hydrator sample packette!

 

I am working on D-Scar by Kate Somerville, Clinique Spot treatment, Shishedo Ibuki Moisturizer, FAB and KORRES Cleansers, and a few other deluxe samples.

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

My goal was 10 and so far I am at 8! I didn't realize that I had low balled my goal.  So midway into the challenge I am upping the ante to 18 sample packets!

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

Okay I used about 20-25 samples in September (I lost count darnit, but that's pretty close).  Several of those were deluxe, not just foil packets.

 

I have only used like 5 in October though, I need to step it up Smiley Very Happy.  My goal was to use 30 in October and I am way behind!

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

Only 5 days left!  How's everyone doing?

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

hehe, i gave away literally 50+ in the TSB but am slacking on using things up myself.

 

I am going to count today or tomorrow I hope and post a count for October Smiley Very Happy.

 

I perhaps mistakenly included all my samples, even if they weren't packets (i.e. little tubes or vials), too!

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

I was terrible. Besides a bunch of DDG pads, I think I used maybe less than 10 sample packets Smiley Sad 

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

I was doing so well... and then I started slacking because my skin got super dry and flakey (probably from switching from one thing or another daily)...

 

I used 12 after my husband threw out about 8-10. So 20... not bad! I wanted to get to 50 packets in a month!!!

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

Yeah, I didn't use a whole lot of skincare samples for that reason.  I would've started breaking out.  I usually try to accumulate at least a few of the same sample so I can use the same product for more than a few days.

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

Oh! Thanks for that little tip! I will accumulate a few of the same skincare products and use it for a few days so I don't constantly switch!

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

Too many samples. PLus trying different things all the time isn't good for anyones skin. I just add them when i sell on ebay

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

I barely have any samples to use up, to start with lol

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

My total is 24!

 

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

Yay! Congrats Smiley Very Happy!  

Highlighted

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

Great!

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

I started strong and then slowly dropped off as the month continued.  I got through 16 either deluxe or regular samples.

 

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

September + October was a total of 144 sample packets for me!!! I took this seriously and am proud of myself for using up what would otherwise just sit in a make up bag and bathroom cabinet. When offered samples, I try to get products I already use, so this was easy for me. Here are Octobers:

And about 30 scattered in September empties picture:

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

YOU TOTALLY WIN!!!

 

I had a goal of 50 which I thought was reasonable but I only got 20...

 

But wow- 144 packets!!! I think I may really try again in the beginning of 2014- I already know one of my New Years Resolution is to start using up my foil and deluxe samples!!!! I don't think I can top yours though!!! We will see!!!


Thanks for motivating me!!

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

I think it's cheating though, because my skin is the opposite of sensitive and can take a beating of product changes that often. And like I said, I stocked up on products I have used or am currently using. The shampoo packets were awesome for after gym class! Now I can start going trough my perfume samples Smiley Tongue

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

This is impressive! Definitely the motivation I need for this month!

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

Holy cannoli!  That is impressive!  Good idea getting samples of stuff you know you like.  I don't do that enough.

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

Great job! I need to start using up my samples for sure!

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

Just curious, do you get your sample packets from on-line purchases or in store?  I don't know what's wrong with me but I NEVER and I mean NEVER get any samples from the Sephora's I go to...is there a sign on my back I'm not seeing?  I feel ripped off.

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

You aren't alone, Many people never get samples from Instore, I've only gotten foil samples twice. I'm more than sure she gets most from online, and TSB's.
