I actually emailed WEI and asked - the representative I was in contact with was super helpful.  She actually recommended some other products for me and told me she would send me those as well.  I asked for one product and will now be receiving four.  I'll have to let you all know when I actually receive them! (I just emailed them on Friday.)

Also, I just wanted to say that this thread is an awesome idea.  I have become addicted to asking companies for samples :) /emoticons/smile@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20" />

Pretty much the same...Jouer, dirt, boscia, manna kadar, waiting to hear back from a few others.  I actually started doing it just last week when you ladies were talking about it in the August BB thread.  I'll keep you updated.

Has anyone tried asking theBalm for some samples?

See that's what suki told me.  That's weird that they'd give one person 10 samples and charge others.  Maybe I just didn't know the secret word?

Beautysage.com has a 5 piece deluxe sample box for $5.  No idea what's in it, but they charge $7.95 for shipping so I skipped it.

I didn't try theBalm, but did ask Benefit.  I was told that's what Sephora is for.

OMG I'm glad it's not just me.  I hated that one!  Not a fan of Calamity J either.  I have a few of them on my trade list.


Yes, Midnight Oud was the one that was terrible for me too. My husband said it smelled like a funeral parlor.

I tried the Balm and I was told they don't have samples.

Amika- $9.95 for

-100ml obliphica shampoo

-10cc obliphica oil treatment

-two 20ml obliphica masks

Jouer- Yes and this is what they should be sending me:

LMT

2 glosses

Lip Enhancer

Manna Kadar- yes but the sample jar was empty

Boscia- yes, $2.50 for the samples

blinc- I emailed them about getting a mascara sample and I could get it if I was a licensed aesthetician and for a small price

Mario Badescu- yes

Miss Jessie's - yes, I got three samples before they changed it

So far these are the only ones I have asked for samples from

Do you guys typically mention that you heard of these companies through which ever sub service you have? I've heard some girls mention it and some reps have been less than helpful

I have been mentioning that I have heard of them through BB and usually let them know if I've gotten or tried their products in the past.  I'm not sure if that's the best way to go about it, but it has seemed to work okay for me.

I have won some things. A SriVectin gift set, a Pangea Organics travel set, MAD Skincare product, Murad facial lotion, and I think a couple others. LOL

Just ordered one! 

Anyone know of any more? I hate emailing and asking for samples, I'd rather just buy mini-kits.
