Are you tired of paying insanely high prices for beauty products, only to bring them home and realize you don’t even like them? Of course you are! But why pay for beauty products at all? There are dozens of companies which will send you full-sized, free beauty samples. All you have to do is tell them what you think!
Are you ready to get free beauty products in the mail? Here are the 8 best places to get free beauty products – for free!
First of all, there’s BzzAgent. I signed up for BzzAgent about six months ago, and was given a sample almost immediately. It was a full size tube of Garnier eye cream, and was my first “Bzz Campaign.”
When you sign up for BzzAgent, you’ll be asked to fill out a few surveys. They’re short and painless, so make sure you do them all. The more you fill out, the more campaigns you’ll qualify for. When you’re contacted about a BzzCampaign, go ahead and sign up! You’ll be sent your trial product, then all you have to do is try it and post what you think!
BzzAgent does samples other than free beauty products, too. They’ll send you pet food, home and garden stuff, and even food for yourself! I recommend you sign up for BzzAgent using your Facebook account. It just makes the whole process so much easier.
The L’Oreal Panel is another site which will give you free beauty products, just for the asking! It’s only open to residents of the United States, but signing up is very simple. You’ll just fill out a few basic questions about yourself, like your name and address. In a few days, you’ll receive an invitation email!
The first sample I received was a bottle of Lancome makeup remover; it wasn’t a sample size, it was a full bottle. L’Oreal owns a few other companies, like Vichy, La Roche and Kerastase. So the samples could be from one of a half dozen different companies.
In exchange for your samples, L’Oreal will ask you for your opinions. But if you successfully submit your feedback, you’ll stay on the list to receive even more beauty products, free.
PINCHme takes a little longer than L’Oreal and BzzAgent to sign up for, but it’s worth it! You can sign in with your social media account, and then you’ll have to answer a series of questions. It’s tempting to skip a few, but don’t! The more questions you answer, the more chance you’ll have of being matched with samples and products.
PINCHme is another site which doesn’t only offer beauty samples. In fact, the samples can range anywhere from dog food to candy. So again, answer all the questions that you can! And for additional giveaways, be sure to like them on Facebook, follow them on Pinterest and connect with them on Twitter.
Daily Goodie Box does exactly what the name suggests. They’ll send you a box with a collection of free samples, including free beauty product samples – you don’t even have to pay for shipping. When you sign up on the site, you’ll be prompted to answer a few questions. As usual, answer them honestly for the best results.
You can find Daily Goodie Box on Facebook, where they post giveaways several times a day. Be sure you add them to the top of your feed, though. There are over 100,000 followers, and samples go fast!
As a “thank you” to Daily Goodie Box for your samples, the company asks that you complete reviews of each product you test. Samples you’ll receive will range from lotion and eyeshadow to energy drinks and barbecue sauce.
This panel isn’t run by a beauty products company. Instead, the magazine, Allure, curates a collection of samples and products for you to try. Not only will you receive free full sized beauty products in the mail, but you’ll also be eligible to earn prizes. When you join, you’ll be entered to win $100, and there are other contests from time to time.
Like some of the other panels, there are a lot of questions to answer. And the Allure Beauty Enthusiasts Panel asks very specific questions, like “at what age do you think a woman should begin a skin care routine?” Questions you’ll definitely have to think about!
When you receive your products, you’ll review them for Allure, and your review may be posted in the magazine!
Influenster is a lot like BzzAgent in that you’ll have to connect to social media. The company will send you a whole box full of free beauty products, and you’ll post reviews to your Facebook, Twitter, or other “influencing” sites. Influenster recommends that you connect with Instagram.
You’ll receive beauty boxes, but also could get samples of foods, electronics, concert tickets and more. When you sign up for Influenster, be sure to go in and finish completing your profile, or else you won’t be eligible to get anything at all.
7. Pink Panel
Pink Panel is another product testing panel, and they specialize in skin care products. In other words, you’ll get lotions, facial creams, washes and even makeup when you join the panel. Signup is pretty simple – like the others, it’s just basic information about what kind of beauty products you’ll have a use for.
Once you sign up, be sure to like Pink Panel on Facebook. They host giveaways regularly, and you don’t want to miss out!
8. House Party
Imagine having a makeup party in your home… and you don’t have to sell anything! That’s what House Party does. You’ll have a few dozen of your closest friends to your house, where you’ll all try the latest free beauty products. Everything you need for you party is supplied by House Party. In fact, sometimes they even chip in for the pizza!
House Party does beauty product events, but you can also sign up to host house cleaning parties, buffalo wing parties, and more. Sign up to find out what’s available for market research in your area. There’s something there for everyone!
9. Ipsos I-Say
You may have heard of Ipsos I-say. They’re most well known as being a survey site; members will answer survey questions in exchange for points. They can then redeem those points for gift cards and even cash.
But Ipsos does product testing, too! They’ve got contracts with some of the biggest names in beauty care, and those companies are always looking for consumer opinions. You’ll have to give them pretty detailed reviews of products, but you’ll get full sized beauty products samples in the mail with Ipsos I-Say!
