What samples are you trialling?
I just received a samples pack from Kit Cosmetics... Mario Badescu Oil Free Moisturiser, Mario Badescu Drying Cream & Mario Badescu Drying Mask... Can't wait to try them!

What samples are you trialling at the moment?

Aveeno shea butter lotion. Free from their website So far I quite like it.

I've wondered with regards to samples in department stores...do most counters have things that they will give away if you ask nicely for samples?

Yes, they should give you samples of products you want to try (if they have them in stock) the best company I've found with samples has been Dermalogica... You can email their website and they send you out samples, but my beautician never has a problem giving me stuff that I want to try before buying...

I've gotten Mario Badescu samples too.
Warning: The first time I used the drying mask I could barely handle the smell.

I also got a Dr. Murad cleaner awhile ago.

I just sampled Crabtree & Evelyn's La Source Hand Recovery... Wow. My hands are so soft now, but the process was weird and kind of painful. But not bad painful, if that makes sense... Just a strange sensation. Worth it though, my hands feel incredible!

Neal's Yard Frankincense Hydrating Cream - not keen on the smell, I find it a bit strong & 'medicinal'. However, it works really well. I tried it on my body first, before risking it on my face & really pleased with the results.

Just finished trying Dermalogica Ultracalming cleanser, kinda like it although I feel it doesn't clean my skin properly as it doesn't lather up.

Nude Skincare Miracle Mask... It felt really nice, almost like an eggwhite in the way it set & how it felt to rinse off... I'll see how my skin goes tomorrow, but so far so good!

I tried samples of the new version of Herbal Essences shampoo and conditioner last night and there can't be any difference in it from the packaging,surely? I've never liked it anyway

Have any of you continued to use any products that you tried samples of? I first tried Olay Regenerist serum & Body Shop Coconut body butter as samples, and both are now total staples I wouldn't do without.
