Today i thought i would take the opportunity to show you how i organize my beauty samples. By saying beauty samples i mean any samples we get with our online orders or from cosmetic store and magazines. We have all gotten them before , im sure. So if you would like to see a good idea on how to store them and why you should get samples , keep reading.
What are beauty samples to me
Everyone looks at this a different way personally i like to ask when it comes to shopping in shops for samples. Whats the point of companies making samples if we cant try them. I have noticed in certain shops i have gone too they have had draws full of them and would always say to me , sorry we cant give you any we have ran out - really ?! Most shopkeepers tend to keep them for themselves , so especially when you are purchasing a product you are entitled to them - always ask.
Beauty samples for me are also great for traveling. When you go traveling take them with you , it will make life so much easier and your suitcase so much lighter. I have samples of makeup remover , face cream , eye cream , shampoo which all suit my body's needs, i only ever carry around with me when traveling 1-2 medium sized cosmetic bags thanks to samples.
Samples are also a great way to try products before you buy, if there is something i am interested in i will go to my local shop and ask them for a sample in that product , try it out at home and if i like it i will buy. For example as you can see i am full on Apivita face cream and eye cream samples , thanks to these i tried them out and have fallen in love with their skincare range and are planning on changing my skincare products to Apivita once they are finished. Samples are also great for men , everyone knows how fussy men are and nothing ever seems to click with them. Before buying him a cream get him a sample and let him try it , if he likes it go buy it !! I do this for my dad and boyfriend . Simple :)
I would like to make a point clear whatever samples i know i wont use or dont like i give them to someone who will use them. I never keep anything useless to me.
How to organize them
I organize my samples the way i noticed shopkeepers organized theirs . Get a basket , box or a draw that will be dedicated to putting them in and get some elastic bands , if you dont have any like i didnt use the elastic bands for the hair which is what i have used. Same thing !! Organize by whatever category you would like by brands , by their purpose or by quantity and then tie them together with an elastic.
Very simple girls, never be shy to ask for them they were made for customers. We are customers and especially us beauty bloggers , we are very good customers :p
Let me know what you do with your samples , if you organize them and if you ask for them.
