Project Tryout:Sample overload


Hi y’all,
I’m in sample hell. That’s right I gather all most of my samples. All the Birchbox,ipsy,point perks, and sephora samples that I have collected over the years. I am to the point that I think I am just so in overload because the red button in my brain is going off.I was thinking about giving some of this stuff away but some I never tried and want to and others are just not enough to send cross country. I’m stuck. I do know that if this crap ain’t touch by June this will be in a giveaway along with the rejects of my Birchbox and Ipsy samples that I will be acquiring in the next couple of months.
Check out the photos below. I know after seeing the pictures you would feel my pain.



Catch ya later,

  1. How on earth do you get so many samples? Do the companies just send them to you or do you request them. Do you ever experience breakouts from trying so many different products. And one suggestion, get rid of that ziplock bag, lol. Oh yeah, if you don’t mind sharing, how did you obtain the share this on your page. I always have a problem trying to import these, thanks for the assistance.

      I do not request samples but I probably should. I think that is a great way to try out products before committing. Most are from Birchbox ,Ipsy and BeautyBox subscripton boxes which you pay for samples and they send 4-5 maybe 6 samples. I can not use them all. I have been with the subscription boxes for Ipsy/birchbox for about a year. The samples that are more high end are from Sephora. Sometimes they put canisters out for you to take samples out of and they also provide samples when you buy online. Sometimes for VIB/VIB rouge they have a sample bag filled with 12 or so samples when you buy product of 15 bucks or more . Each time I buy online for any makeup company including beauty on Nordstrom.com I receive samples.I even got a Chanel sample out of a magazine.lol Have I broken out , yes and I have documented it. It was a clay mask that smelled like a toothpaste. I will do updates and let you know if I have any issues or if I like any of the samples.

  2. I’ve gotten brutal with my samples lately (out of necessity.) If I try something and I don’t like it, it’s going out. No need to attempt to use up the full thing. If I know i’m not going to use it, i bundle them up and put them on ebay to get them out. You won’t get rich but it is a really satisfying way to get rid of them!
