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. Smiley Happy

 

Who doesn't love free samples anyway? Smiley Happy

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

@violalea - you should. i always make it a point to say that I have read good reviews regarding their products or that a friend of mine has recommended their products to me. i also tell them that i wanna be able to try some of their samples before committing to buying the full sized counterparts. i also make it a point to tell them a about my skin type and condition so that no samples will be put to waste. Smiley Happy

 

with Jane Iredale, I told them that I have tried their bb cream and bought it in its full size and asked if they have other samples for their other products. they got back at me saying that they will send me 6 lipstick samples. Smiley Happy

 

so yea, i hope those tips will help you out. Smiley Happy

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

So i've been contacting a few companies but only one has agreed to send some. I contacted Murad, Ole Henrikson and Origins. They all declined, or said they weren't able to send out samples. But i did email First Aid Beauty and they said they would send a few packettes of the Ultra Repair Cream and their Cleanser! So i'm excited to try a couple of new things from FAB!

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

That's so weird! I got yes from Murad and OH no from Origins and no from FAB. I really wanted to try out FAB they told me to go to my local Sephora.

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

I would rather get a yes from Murad than FAB.lol

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

I have recently gotten samples from DermOrganic, REN, Juice Beauty, Dr. Harushka, Koh Gen Do, Acuru. 

Tres Pure & 100% Pure wouldn't send me samples, but gave me codes to use on-line. 

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

I just emailed Ren, and DermOrganic, but I emailed Koh Gen Do a week ago and haven't gotten a response! 

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

Same with Koh Gen Do :/ a couple of days ago a girl posted a pic of all these samples they sent her and I contacted them but have yet to hear anything. Hourglass said no as well.

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

Aw, I contacted Hourglass as well, i guess i can expect a no! Smiley Sad

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

Hourglass said no to me as well. 

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

I haven't heard anything back from DermOrganic, Ren sent me some samples and Juice Beauty said they would as well. Dr. Harushka sent me some stuff and I haven't heard anything from Koh Gen Do, no response at all! 

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

I just emailed some of these companies you guys mentioned. It seems as though skincare brands are more willing to send samples as I emailed some cosmetics brands awhile ago and were turned down by all. Vbeaute responded right away and is sending samples. Caudalie says to visit Sephora Smiley Tongue If anyone wants to try Glamglow, they sell a sample packet for $12 on their site. I think you get 2-3 packets of both the white and black. Much cheaper than buying the full jar if you aren't sure you like it. I'll update if I hear from any other companies.

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

I've gotten a few emails back already.

Brands that are sending samples:

  • Jane Iredale
  • Weleda
  • VBeaute
  • Everyday Minerals 

Most that are sold at Sephora have replied saying to ask for samples there, including:

  • Origins
  • Caudalie
  • First Aid Beauty

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

Fab agreed to send some, but i did tell them i don't have a Sephora near me that carries their line. So maybe that's why they agreed. But i am specifying that i don't have a store near me that carries their line since i only have a SiJCP that carries nothing i want to try. 

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

Oh okay, no biggie though, since I do have one near me, just easier if they can send them because we don't have to make the trip Smiley Happy And the only thing I dislike about getting samples in store is that I feel like I have to use it up right away since they're not in a package, but just the sample containers.

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

hey ladies, just be patient with Hourglass and Koh Gen Do. they replied to me pretty late. these two companies are generous with their samples.

 

with Hourglass, I received 6 tubs of their foundation + mineral veil primer. the tubs are gorj, btw. the lid is colored black with engraved hourglass in silver. i'l recycle mine when i'll open some of my foil samples. Smiley Happy

 

with Koh Gen Do, I posted a picture of what they sent me in one of the BT threads here. they gave me a loooot. Smiley Happy

 

so yea, if after 2 weeks, they haven't responded yet, try to send them an email again. i believe they're worth the wait. Smiley Happy

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

Thanks, maybe I should try again, they told me they don't give samples without a purchase Smiley Sad Maybe just depends who answers the email?

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

I know this is mystifying to me! It must matter who you get or the time of year?

 

Weird that they say yes to one person and no to another, all in one week!?

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

I emailed the following and am waiting for a reply from the company:

 

1. hourglass

2. koh gen doh

3. weleda

4. dr hauschka

 

 

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

I have also emailed and am waiting on a response from:

 

Ren

L'occitane

Mario Badescu

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

L'occitane send me an email that says that yes they do mail out samples, they asked me to send them by address which I did, now I am waiting on my samples!

 

I also emailed La Mer, hope they get back to me Smiley Very Happy

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

Ok so far I got a no from La Mer, and a yes for Loccitane

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

I'm glad you got such great samples! Hourglass answered really quick and declined to send samples. I hope Koh Gen Do does reply and send some! 

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

I got an email really quickly from Hourglass and they declined to send samples. I saw your photos and I love the containers. I wanted the containers more than anything! Lol.

 

I emailed Koh Gen Do over a month ago and I didn't get a response. I emailed them again a few days ago.

 

I received two samples from Jane Iredale. One pressed powder and one BB cream.

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

Vichy

Eve Lom

Armani Beauty ( It was a limited time complimentary trial of their luminous silk foundation and luminizers)

I'm also part of allure beauty enthusiast so every once in a while, I get deluxe or full size beauty item for survey review purposes.

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

Oh yes so am I, last time I got a full size bottle of Isaac Mizrahi Fabulous perfume.
