Happy New Year Everyone!!
I have recently started getting into beauty/cosmetics and I thought I would scour the web for free samples this month to find out what I like. Hopefully this will turn into a monthly post and I will find a lot of free beauty samples to share with everyone. For December, many of the samples came with purchase, but with free shipping. However, to find a lot of totally free samples in the future. I will also be reviewing these products in future posts.
Sephora: I visited Sephora in store and they had a spinning wheel of samples. I received the La Mer eye balm, and T.L.C. Sukari Baby Facial, which were 2 cute little samples. I had no idea how much these were until now! However, I did find La Mer a bit cheaper as well as a 0.1 oz size on Amazon. I based my decision off the sales associate’s recommendation and I am so excited to try them! I also purchased $50 worth of sales items online and received free shipping as well as samples of Too Faced shadow insurance, boscia revitalizing black hydration gel, and Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer. The Boscia Hydration Gel and UD Naked Skin Coverage Concealer is a bit cheaper on Amazon as well.
Origins: I ordered a Flower Fusion Nourishing Sheet Mask, which costs $7 and if you sign up with your email you get 15% off your first purchase. They also periodically offer free shipping with samples, otherwise if you spend $35 you get free shipping and 5 free samples. With this purchase, I received samples of Renewal serum with Willowherb, GinZing refreshing scrub cleaner, mega defense barrier boosting essential oil, mineral-enriched renewal cream, and GinZing energy-boosting moisturizer.
Te Mana: Free online samples Noni Brightening toner and serum.
Clinique: As a holiday special, clinique offered free shipping as well as six free samples of your choice. To get these, I ordered the 2-in-1 Cleansing Micellar Gel + Light Makeup Remover for $10 and received lash power flutter to full mascara, Almost Lipstick Mini in Black Honey, Chubby Intense Mini in Broadest Berry, Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief Mini, Jonathan Adler Lip Colour + Primer Nude Pop (which my mom unfortunately stole), and Clinique pop lip colour + primer mini in plum pop.
Bare Minerals: The only thing I received from Bare Minerals in exchange for a $10 purchase is a tiny little kabuki brush. This Brush is also cheaper if you purchase on Amazon. If you sign up for their rewards program you also receive 15% off + a free sample.
I hope you enjoyed seeing my samples! I hope to post an update with more free sampeles soon. Please let me know of any free samples you have received recently and link to where you got them! Thanks for reading!
