As many of you know, I love a good bargain and free stuff is the best. I actually keep several close relatives' addresses on hand and send them samples if I run across one that I think they will like. I recently learned that any Sephora store will give you free samples with zero purchase required any time you are in the store (either the stand alone store or the store in JC Penney's). These are not prepackaged samples of whatever they are pushing that day. They will make up a sample of what you are interested in right there as you wait & watch. They do have some limits - no samples of pressed cosmetics, pencils, mascara. 3 samples per 'world' are the limit - worlds are fragrance, skincare and color. Cost of the item is not a limit - I got a sample of Sunday Riley Luna Night Oil which is about $100 per ounce and they filled the container up! Jessi and I went to see what they had & I was amazed. I got samples of some things I really want to try and of some skincare stuff they suggested. Jessi did the same. There was NO hard sell of ANYTHING. Previously I went to Ulta because our town has one & I hate malls. But in our Ulta they either hard sell or ignore you. From now on I will put out the extra effort & go to Sephora when I need something. Jessi, my mother & I had a lovely time exploring the serums & face oils we got as samples. Another item that caught my interest is on an item none of us really wants to discuss much. Poise has something new for leakage. It looks like a tampon and provides support to help stop stress incontinence. This is a link to their FAQ page which gives short answers to the question I thought of, and has video clips with longer answers:http://www.poise.com/products/impressa/faq From this page you can go to the samples/offers page to get printable coupons for these gizmos and printable coupons & free samples of their other products.
