My Sephora Wish: Let Me Buy Samples

One of my favorite things about Sephora is the free samples I receive with every order. It allows me to try new products that I would normally overlook or not consider at all - and I've actually adopted new products into my beauty routine simply because I fell in love with a sample. Plus - who doesn't love a little gift!


Now, I'm NOT suggesting you do away with the free samples! But, it would be nice to be able to purchase samples that aren't currently being featured or that aren't a part of the weekly specials. It would really help out when a girl is on a beauty mission! For example, I received a premium sample of the Dr. Jart + Premium Beauty Balm in the Sun Safety Kit. I had never considered a BB cream before, but now I'm all over it! I'd really like to sample other BB creams, but there's no way I'm going to shell out the dough for a full-sized product before trying it out.  I'd love to be able to purchase samples for other BB creams!


Or, another option would be to put more premium sample kits together like the Sun Safety Kit - one with eye creams, one for body lotions, a mascara collection, or BB cream collection.


In the meantime, I'll wait until Sephora has a BB cream sample in the lineup, or until one is offered as a Beauty Insider reward.

I would also love more sample kits. I'm a sucker for mini anything. They're good for travel and obviously trying stuff out. I really like mini mascaras because I feel bad when I don't use up a full tube.

That sounds like a great idea!  I would love a eye cream sampler as I really haven't found my HG yet. Same with wrinkle products, it takes so long to finish a full size bottle that it would be great to try more kinds with smaller bottles. The size should be like a deluxe sample, though, those little sample packets don't give enough to tell if the product works, only enough to determine if you hate the consistency.

Hi Shawka,


That's a cool suggestion, offer samples for sale and maybe even small sets with combinations. 🙂 I'll definitely forward your request to the appropriate department. Thanks for contacting us!

Luv&Lipgloss, Diana
