Hello again lovelies!
First of all wanted to send some love and a serious thank you to the (as of now,) 86 followers I have gained in a little over a week! I am still very new to this, and it's good to know that even a newbie can gain such support! You guys are amazing! Anyhow! There is one tip I wanted to share with you today. Some do not even know that this is possible, but you really can get free Beauty samples without doing surveys or paying for shipping and handling costs. There are a few rules I follow when using this method, however. The reason I want to share this with you, is because of all the amazing products I have discovered through this method, that I would have NEVER discovered otherwise! If you have a leginimate interest in trying a product, but you are not sure if you want to commit to another product without the buyer's remorse, you can simply contact them to let this know this! These companies can tell when someone is genuinely interested, and can typically sniff out a "sample-whore." Make sure you do some research, and it does not hurt to ask about specific products. There is an online community of beauty buffs, that has helped me to determine which companies are more prone to send these samples upon request, specifically a forum entitled "What companies have you gotten samples from?" which can be found at http://www.makeuptalk.com/f/topic/117311-what-companies-have-you-gotten-samples-from/page-1. Some of the companies I have had luck with lately are:
Shamanuti Skincare- Sent two large samples of Charcoal Cleanser, and Seaweed Toner, in pretty glass bottles!
Hempz- Lots of foils that include body lotions and shower gel.
Lalique Fragrances- 5 nice sized spray vials of the most popular scents.
jane Iredale- Two mineral foundations, a lovely mascara, and a tinted moisturizer.
I will be reviewing each of these products over time, and I will update the list of companies that have said yes to me, or have already sent things, as soon as I get a photo of my sample collection! Thanks again for reading!
I do apologise for the blur, but you should get the idea! :)
