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?

Awesome Smiley Happy yes some are very quick to reply

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

I got a no for Murad! They said "We give 3 samples with every order but do not give them out otherwise."???  Liars..so not impressed.

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

Oh bummer, wait a week and try again! 

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

Really? They were generous to me! They sent me several samples

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

I think it depends on who you get.  I had no problems with Jane Iredale but some earlier posters didn't have any luck.  

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

Where do you ask them for the samples? I looked all over the site but all the email addresses they gave were for specific problems.

prodfeedback@murad.com

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

I jumped in the bandwagon and sent some emails too! So far,

Yes from Dr. Hauschka, Ren, Ole Henricksen, living proof, Mario badescu, murad, sunday riley and koh gen do. No for La roche posay. I thought Koh gen do would say no because there is a sephora nearby that carry them but I guess you won't know until you try. Glad I did!

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

i'm still waiting for my fab and l'occitane samples to arrive Smiley Sad everything else showed up within days! i think i may email jane iredale again asking about the lipsticks... i love those minis!

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

I've received samples from La Mer in the past. You sign up for an account on their website, and it acts like you need to buy something for samples, but free samples of the CdlM and a serum showed up in my mailbox about six weeks later.

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

They didn't even reply to me lol

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

I got a free deluxe sample from smashbox, i don't know how I don't remember filling anything out lol

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

Thats great !!!!!!

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

I just got Mario Badescu today.  7 generous samples! I am loving the Strawberry face scrub and the hypersonic eye cream. I will definately buy both of those. 

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

Yep from all the companies that I have received samples of, Mario Badescu and Jane Iredale definitely are the most generous, the least are Murad and FAB, they sent me 2 foil package samples. I do appreciate them send out samples anyway.  Ren is not bad, they sent me 3 small tubes.

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

Its weird how we all get different answers!! Murad was very generous with me and I got two 1.5 fl oz cleansers from them. Whereas I got a no from FAB Smiley Sad I really wanted to try them out too, even if it was just foil samples.

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

Thats great you got a lot from Murad Smiley Happy.FAB said no to me at first. Yep they were like sorry we didnt have that and I said I loved trying their products or something like that and then yes but 2 foil package samples only haha. Oh well free is free Smiley Wink. I think it really depends on the person who replies to us. 

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

Jane Iredale was NOT generous to me, it was like pulling teeth to get the woman I emailed with to send 1 sample, what on earth did you all do differently, haha. 

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

I swear, it depends on the person who answers! I honestly just asked for the lipstick samples lol, I'm definitely gonna purchase from them though, I wish I had gotten a shade of foundation that matched me :<!

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

Jane Iredale was awful to me! They sent me a half empty mini jar of their BB cream that wasn't even enough to cover half of my face! I was so upset! I'm definitely not buying any products from them! 

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

Just to update Murad, koh gen do, and vbeaute all said yes. Still waiting on Ren to answer. I only asked those 5 so fingers crossed for ren!

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

I asked OH and Ren for samples a few minutes ago. If they do send you samples do you have to pay the shipping? Do any makeup companies do samples?

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

I know for Boscia you need to pay shipping, but I haven't so far Smiley Happy

And Jane Iredale does some people have gotten some stuff from perfekt and hourglass but I had no luck with them =(

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

Sort of. Both Murad & Ren were short postage. It ended up costing me about 80 cents total for both of them. Well worth it in my opinion Smiley Happy 

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

I don't have a problem paying 80 cents. I do have an issue with giving them my credit card, especially through an email, or did you pay through the site?
