What companies have you gotten samples from?

Recommended Posts

In one of the August Birchbox threads, someone asked that a tread get started with all the companies that have sent free samples when asked.  Here's a list of some of mine:

 

dirt.

Coola - Some people were told no

Supergoop

Jouer

Melvita - Some people were told no

Manna Kadar

One Love Organics - $3.95 for "discovery kit"

Boscia - Pay $2.50 for s/h

Suki - I was told I had to buy, some were sent for free

Amika - $9.95 for 3 items

Miss Jessie's (I got 3 samples but I hear they give 2 now)

 

Juliette Has A Gun (not free, but a discovery vial kit lets you try one of everything. Depending on the exchange rate that day it's about $11)  They will refund the amount of the kit if you buy from them after. There is a perfume I *really* want, too. Pricey but I may end up getting the "purse bullet" because I love the fragrance and it's a cool way to carry it.

NeoStrata sent me a nice pouch literally packed with samples, some were big deluxe sized ones.

I forgot that I've also gotten Miss Jessie's, Juliette Has a Gun (so not my scent) and MAD.  That's some great stuff from NeoStrata!

I've emailed the following companies and they've said they will send me free samples:

 

  • Gloss ([email protected]) - They said they will send me free samples of the High-Gloss Masque and High-Gloss Serum. Still waiting for this.
  • Boscia (you have to call them to place your order: 1.888.635.8884.) - For $2.50 Shipping and Handling I received the Detoxifying Black Cleanser sample packette, Purifying Cleansing Gel Sample, Oil-free Daily Hydration SPF 15,

    Oil-free Nightly Hydration Sample, B.B. Cream SPF 27 PA++ Sample, Enlivening Amino-AG Eye Treatment Sample and the Vital Daily Moisture SPF 15 Sample.

  • Suki ([email protected]) - They asked me what kind of skin I have and then sent me a bunch (like 10) free samples.

  • Ada ([email protected]) - Sent me two full sample size peach bronzers. They will last forever.

  • Dirt ([email protected]) - Very nice, said they will send me samples. Still waiting.

  • Jouer ([email protected]) - Sent me two little lip gloss samples along with a decent size lip enhancer and a Body Glow sample for free.

  • Manna Kadar ([email protected]) - They sent a tiny little dot of the sheer glo stuff along with a 20% off coupon for their store. Seriously, the sample was ridiculously small inside a big jar.

 

 

The following companies do not give out free samples:

 

  • Harvey Prince - You have to buy their sample perfumes for $12 each, but they are a decent size.
  • Stila - Very nice, but said they didn't have any samples to give out. Said that you can usually get some when you purchase from their store. 
  • Laura Geller - Said they don't have any samples, but to check back occassionally.
  • Arquiste - Said they haven't established a sample shipping program yet.
  • Ahava

Wow, you didn't find any of the scents in the whole pack you liked? That's too bad. I thought there was an amazing range of fragrances in there. One I LOVE, one I like for day or early hockey mom mornings, most were just all right, and one was really, truly awful on me. Just nasty. They were interesting because they all smelled different 1. In the vial, 2. on my skin, and then 3.after they actually dried on my skin. These were definitely not the type of perfumes I could sniff in the vial and decide.

 

I wish I had more to trade because if people truly don't like/want them I'd like to collect more of the one that I really love (and maybe the other I just like)! I think I will have to buy at least the one because I will really miss it when it's out.

Was it Midnight Oud? Lol That's the only one I hated, love ALL the others though. Definitely worth it, I think I found my favorite perfume brand. : )

Also: DDF is a no go, and Wei has samples on their website free with a purchase- so I didn't even bother with them. Thanks for the info! This is a great thread!

OMG I'm glad it's not just me.  I hated that one!  Not a fan of Calamity J either.  I have a few of them on my trade list.

I like the Vengeance scents, but so far only one of them doesn't smell weird on me.  That's how it goes I guess, like Angel, my sister in law loves it, on me it's bug spray.

Thanks for sharing! I liked the status before they reached 100, I hope they were keeping track because now over 100 people like it, so how will they be able to tell who was first?

I actually emailed WEI and asked - the representative I was in contact with was super helpful.  She actually recommended some other products for me and told me she would send me those as well.  I asked for one product and will now be receiving four.  I'll have to let you all know when I actually receive them! (I just emailed them on Friday.)

 

Also, I just wanted to say that this thread is an awesome idea.  I have become addicted to asking companies for samples :)

Pretty much the same...Jouer, dirt, boscia, manna kadar, waiting to hear back from a few others.  I actually started doing it just last week when you ladies were talking about it in the August BB thread.  I'll keep you updated.

 

Has anyone tried asking theBalm for some samples?

See that's what suki told me.  That's weird that they'd give one person 10 samples and charge others.  Maybe I just didn't know the secret word?

 

Beautysage.com has a 5 piece deluxe sample box for $5.  No idea what's in it, but they charge $7.95 for shipping so I skipped it.

    • Anxiety won’t make you ugly, but it can do something even more awful: it will poison your mental health slowly. I would recommend not to waist time and consult a professional ASAP (mine just prescribed me cbd oil which I used with special oil cartridge vaporizer and coped with this disease easily).

    • Thank you very much for the article. I'm also interested in fashion and I'm interested in the history of fashion. I often find interesting articles on the Internet. Jeans have long been a very necessary part of our everyday clothes. Now there are many different styles of jeans that will underline any figure. This article  https://stylejeanswear.com/what-is-cowboy-cut-jeans/ has a lot of interesting information about cowboy jeans. I like the fact that the article describes what type of figure they are more suitable. It seems to me that it may be interesting to you too.
