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?

The brushes and formula are amazing 


Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

I filled out the survey on the Mario Badescu website a couple of days ago and received an email today saying they want to send me free samples (some may not be available as samples).


They recommended:

Enzyme Cleansing Gel

Cucumber Cleansing Lotion

Hyaluronic Eye Cream

Special Mask For Oily Skin

Hydro-Moisturizer With Vitamin C

Drying Lotion

Strawberry Face Scrub


Hoping the face scrub is available as a sample since I love trying new face scrubs and am sure this one smells really good. Also hoping to try the special mask for oily skin. I very rarely get acne of any kind but interested in trying the drying lotion as I know it's one of the more popular products.

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

Here are samples that have come in for me recently! Once I gave the companies my mailing address, they arrived very quickly. I am waiting on Koh Gen Doh and Juice Beauty. I gave them my address yesterday. I never heard back from L' Occitane or Ojon. Carol's Daughter, La Roche Posay, Hourglass, and Avalon Organics all said no.

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

So lets compare:

-Ole Henrikson: I got only 3 foil package samples

-Ren: I got 3 small tubes

-Living proof: I got frizz shampoo&conditioner, Restore Shampoo&conditioner, frizz nourishing styling cream, restore targeted repair cream. Living proof loves me Smiley Wink



-Murad: 2 foil samples

-FAB : 2 foil samples

-L'occitane: 4 or 5 foil samples

-Jane Iredale: 3 foundation jars, 3 premade primers and 1 small tube of something.


So I love Living proof and Jane Iredale cause they love me Smiley Wink


For Mario Badescu, I think everyone got the same 6-7 samples.


I have not emailed demalogica yet. I will need to do that.


Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

I was expecting the Living Proof Thickening Shampoo as well because the rep told me that I would like it, but maybe she forgot to include it. I look forward to trying the samples anyway. I know some people got a no from them. Smiley Happy

I really wanted to write to Korres, but someone said they said no, and I cannot seem to find their contact info. :/

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

I'll take a picture once I receive all my shipments. So far they have been really nice to me. My Murad samples actually came in a big box. This confused me as I was expecting foil samples. So it was a nice surprise!

I feel like I'm doing better than expected! So far anything specific I have asked for they have sent me. I did ask about the Jane Iredale lipsticks though. She said they aren't doing samples of those right now because they are coming out with new shades and formulas. She told me to check back later. I'm hoping my other samples are this nice.

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

Awesome neko333!!!!!!! I was about to ask you what did you say exactly haha exactly in your mail to let Murad sent so many things to you cause they only sent me 2 foil samples but then I remember it really depends on the person who answer our email Smiley Happy cause sometimes I got more than others too. So I should feel happy Smiley Happy.

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

Most of mine looked something like-


Is there any way to get samples of Murad products? I'm looking for new skincare and am very interested in this brand. I appreciate your time. Thank You. 

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

Thanks neko333. I will try that again in a few months Smiley Happy. Enjoy your samples!!
