Ahhh… nothing adds a big of extra happiness to your beauty purchases like that little sample they throw in your bag. A cute little vial of perfume. An sachet of that expensive face cream. You scoop it up carefully like a little squirrel carrying a precious winter berry and add it to your growing stash….so now what?
I’m sure this happens to most of us, you responsibly store away your beauty samples telling yourself that it’s going to come in handy for travel or use on a day that you’ve unexpectedly ran out of other things. I do the exact same thing…except that I usually never bring “new” products on a trip in case my skin reacts badly and since I always have my eye on the next new product to try I am also rarely without a certain crucial product in my daily regime.
The prospect of using a sample sometimes makes me weary. What if I fall in love with something I can’t afford? I’ll be lusting after it every sleepless night and wander around like a heartbroken love bird.
Having a stash of multiple samples is always nice, especially when it comes to skincare so I can have bit of time to let me skin make up it’s mind. There have also been times I’ve been curious about a product and just ordered a handful of samples which were extremely helpful to test out textures and colours. And let me tell you, sometime they turn out well…and other times…. let’s just say thank goodness I didn’t buy the full size!
How do you oraganize and keep your sample stash under control?
Do you eager open them immediately or are you a saver like me?
