Everybody loves a good beauty sample – it’s a great way of trying out new products without having to commit to the full size and risking wasting your money. I always like to keep a good selection of sample sizes for trips away so I’m not carting around a heavy bag of products and it’s always nice to try something different. I get a lot of my sample sizes from goody bags at blogger events or from subscription boxes such as LOVE ME BEAUTY where you can choose your own products for £13.95 a month.

I’ve recently discovered that Feel Unique offer a Pick ‘n’ Mix service where you can choose five samples (from a huge selection) for just the cost of delivery which is £3.95. Once you’ve received your products, you get a voucher worth £3.95 emailed over to you so you can save on your next purchase if you decide that you love one of the samples enough to splash out on the full size.

Of course, as I’m always up for a bargain I had to check this offer out for myself and I was pleasantly surprised to see that they were offering a sample size of Benefit’s Gimme Brow which is actually worth £5. I obviously had to take part in the Pick ‘n’ Mix just to get the Benefit sample as Gimme Brow is my favourite brow gel and I’d recently ran out – the other four samples were just a bonus for me!

I’m not sure why I picked the NARS samples as I already have the full sized version of Orgasm and then I have a travel palette with both Orgasm and Laguna inside, but these will be good to slip into my makeup bag on one of the many trips I have planned for this month.

As the weather is getting warmer, I’m starting to think about fake tanning and I’m always up for trying out new ones, so I picked out the Hi Shi Face and Body Tanning Gel which is a really generous size for a sample. I’ll get a couple of uses out of this and I like that it is suitable for your face as well.

Finally, I chose the Burt’s Bees Coconut Foot Cream. I always like to treat my feet to a good moisturising cream and I haven’t tried much from the brand before, so I decided to give this a go. The sample size is huge and will probably last me a while. I’m excited to see how good it is as I’ve heard so much about Burt’s Bees products.

    What a great idea and a bargain! I hate it when I buy products that don’t suit me. This is a perfect way to try them out!
