Join A Review Community

There are loads of review communities out there that offer free makeup and skincare products in exchange for reviews.

This helps the company in three ways – you get a free sample and thus feel positively about the company, you tell the company what works and what doesn’t so they can get better and good reviews help sell beauty products to new customers.

They can’t go wrong with this approach really. Some examples of these communities include:

Get Samples When/Where You Buy Skincare

Many of the biggest online retailers of skincare and makeup have free makeup and promotional offers for free samples.

Skincare Product Samples

They tend to let you take advantage of these offers as you shop. So just head over to the retailer of your choice, load up the cart and then ask for as many freebies as they’re willing to give at checkout – this is a great way to get skin care products that really work and often for every skin type including dry skin, combination skin, etc. We love free self-care!

Some of the companies good for this include:

  • B-Glowing
  • Blue Mercury
  • Bloomingdales
  • The Detox Market
  • ELF Cosmetics
  • L’Occitane
  • Macy’s
  • Neiman Marcus
  • Nordstrom
  • Saks Fifth Avenue
  • Sephora
  • Soko Glam
  • Ulta

Sign Up For All The Skincare Newsletters And Mailing Lists You Can Find

When you visit all the websites of the brands listed above, don’t waste the opportunity you have. Make sure to create a separate email account for this and then sign up to all their mailing lists (like you signed up for ours – you have signed up to ours, right? It’s free and we’d love to have you.)

Then you’ll get regular emails that provide free samples, free coupons, self-care tips, even full-size products occasionally. From eye shadow to moisturizers, you’d be amazed at the amazing offer you get from e-mail even without making a purchase!


If you simply visit retail outlets then you will often find they are happy to give you a few free samples just for the asking. We regular visit brands like Body Shop or Ulta and enquire if they have samples of the latest products and they’re only too happy to oblige.

If things are quiet in Macy’s or Nordstroms, their makeup counter staff will normally furnish you with a sample or two for the asking.

You can also write to companies and ask them for samples, they will probably send you something for free and again, no purchase is necessary to make this happen.

If you have a blog or Instagram account, it’s a good idea to build relationships with companies by asking – they may send you an awful lot of free stuff if they like what you do.

Try Winning Some Skincare Samples

We’ve got one final strategy for getting the kind of freebies or skincare sample that you really want – win them.

There are loads of online sweepstakes sites that offer regular chances to win prizes from the bigger brands out there. You may not have the money to purchase the entire Roche Posay line but you can probably win it.

The more often you enter sweeps and giveaways, the more likely you are to win and at no cost to yourself.

Final Thoughts On Free Beauty Samples

Some people would also argue that if you sign up for beauty box subscriptions; you can get samples for “almost free” but that’s not free in our book and thus we left them out of our list.

However, as you can see, there are plenty of ways to save money and get yourself free makeup and skincare samples without too much effort on your behalf.

We love these approaches because they bring free samples from big-name brands that you know you can trust!
