Basically you have an opportunity to try these sample sizes before you purchase a full size product. Anything free to help you decide on a product is always nice, so I was excited to score them this time around.
Once you get your box, you are given a few weeks, and then a follow up email will be sent to you. You will be asked to write a mini review (few sentences) for their website, just general thoughts on the products.
There are a bunch of samples to choose from, and they dwindle quickly so you want to get to the site ASAP when it is released.
Here is what I got…
Garnier BB Cream
I tested out the BB in stores when it was released, and wasn’t too fond of it. Haven’t tried out the sachet yet, but we will see. What I did like was the little tab they provided for you to see how oily your skin is, helping you categorize your skin.
Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration
I had seen a lot of promo for this last year on various blogs. Personally I used to stay away from these brands when I was younger. My skin was far more sensitive back then, and I would break out in to a rash. I was a little weary at first, but so far no issue! I loved that they also provided a decent size sample to try out. This would last as least a week, and well I think for something like this that would be enough time to make up your mind. And on the chance you do like it, they provided a coupon for you to use as well. Nice gesture :)
We don’t use our dishwasher, as for some reason my family thinks that doing things by hand is always better in this case…I am not an exception to this. So I gave the dishwasher one to my brother. But I do like the laundry packs. It seems crazy to me that one little thing is enough, but it really is. Not too strong in scent, but powerful enough to do the load.
Jergens Natural Glow in the Firming Formula
Again another company that provided a decent size sample for trial! I was happy to score this as I do enjoy the drugstore sunless tints. I had one from Loreal that I got as a sample a long time ago, and that is what started my affair with them. This one is for firming, and works to combat cellulite. The claim is that you can see the difference in a week. Unfortunately I wasn’t one of the lucky ones to experience that, but I did like the subtle colour it gave me. Plus it smells nice, like a discontinued Vasaline lotion.
Schick Razor Hydro Silk
Usually I go for the Schick Intution, as it allows me to dry shave when I don’t have the luxury of time. However this one isn’t too bad as well. I like that it is easier to store than the Intuition, and at least it is a tad cheaper cause it doesn’t have the lotion bar surrounding the entire thing. Plus it has a nice handle for good grip.
Tresseme Platinum Strength
These guys are good for 3 ways for my hair. Not a lot, but enough to see if my scalp reacts, or if I like the scent. It isn’t bad, but I perfer to use the Keratese samples that I got throuh Klout.
I should also mention that the boxes come with one 3 month subscription. There are 3 different magazines to choose from, and if you want paper of iPad form. I forgot which one I got, but will be nice to read a few magazines when they get here.
So have you ever snagged boxes like this? Maybe the P&G sampler?
Personally love them, when they provide decent samples. Plus it is free, you can’t really go wrong with that can you? :)
