Skincare and Makeup Samples

Skincare and Makeup Samples

During my transition to organic and natural skincare I have noticed something quite extraordinary. Organic and natural skincare and makeup companies are extremely willing to give out and sell samples! I have extremely sensitive skin and I’m really picky when it comes to makeup so I LOVE samples! It’s such a fantastic way to try out skincare and makeup without wasting a ton of money!

This is especially helpful if you don’t have a store near you that carries the more niche brands like W3ll People, Vapour Organics or Kjaer Weis. So, where can you get samples?

Integrity Botanicals – You can add 3 samples (OF YOUR CHOICE!) to any purchase! The samples are extremely generous in size so you get enough to really get a feel for the products! I have an Integrity Botanicals review here!

Silk Naturals – Silk Naturals sells natural makeup and they do great foundation, powder and eyeshadow samples. This is a great way to figure out your foundation shade and try out their powder and shadow formulas. Their foundation samples are $0.99 and I am still using mine 3 weeks later! It’s completely worth it! I have a Silk Naturals review here!

Seed to Serum – Megan, the owner of Seed to Serum, sells a ton of sample sizes! This is a great way to try out really expensive skincare and lip colors without breaking the bank! I have a Seed to Serum review here.

Aurora Beauty – Aurora Beauty has a custom sample option! Choose 5 samples for $15. I have not personally tried Aurora Beauty’s custom samples but I’ve heard really wonderful things from other green beauty bloggers!

The Beauty Proof also has a list of places you can get samples! The Beauty Proof is an amazing resource if you are just switching to green beauty! Highly recommend checking her out!

Let me know if you know of anywhere else you can get samples! I love trying out new makeup and skincare!

    I’ve never heard of Aurora Beauty but I’m ready to place an order! They have many of my current products and many that I want to try. I wonder if they have a discount for first-timers?

      I’m not sure! I have never ordered from them (something I am going to amend very soon!) they do carry amazing brands! Try signing up for their emails 🙂 a lot of companies will send you a discount code

    Oh thanks so much for this post! This was exactly what I needed on where I should get started with trying some green products! What products would you recommend I try first?

      Hi Mika! It totally depends on what you need! Makeup? Skincare? Both? Everything? Ha
