I am a beauty product junkie.
No matter what product I’m currently enamored with, there’s nothing like a seductive beauty ad to sweep me off my feet and convince me I just HAVE to have the newest, latest insert make-me-look-younger-smoother-shinier-happier-most-amazing-newest-product-ever-with-extracts-from-something-natural-yet-totally-weird-here.
But, you know what I mean.
Even with samples sent to me, it can be an expensive habit. And chaotic for my medicine cabinet too.
So how can you “cheat” the system and still indulge in some beauty product sampling? Here’s 5 ways to score free beauty products.
I cannot stand Walmart. The store is way too chaotic. And it’s a fashion girl’s nightmare (hello, People of Walmart anyone??).
Walmart online, however, is a totally different story. Especially since they offer freebies every week. Yes, FREE! Just visit the website, fill in your mailing address and items will be shipped right to your door.
If you’re a frequent Sephora shopper, you must check out their Beauty Deals. Although they aren’t completely free (most are offered as a gift-with-purchase) the products to try are too good to pass up. Some of this week’s goodies include free samples of Lancome anti-aging serum, shisheido suncare set, and even a 5-piece Sephora makeup collection set.
3. Fragrance Samples
Honestly, do you ever stop to take samples from those oh-so-annoying perfume salespeople? Next time you feel like walking by with your nose in the air, stop and chat for a minute. Most perfume counters already have mini samples available for you to take home and try. You’ll get at least a good 10 spritzes out of the teenie tubes and it’s totally free!
Bonus tip: Stash the spritzed-on paper sample in your purse, it’s a great way to freshen it up!
4. Allure Free Stuff
Is it any wonder the magazine devoted to beauty products has an entire page devoted just to free stuff? Check back frequently, sometimes the giveaway is as simple as the first few folks who sign up!
