Who doesn't like free stuff? If you want to try new beauty products as soon as they come out, but you can't spend a fortune on such things, you've come to the right place. We've compiled this guide for you, so that you can get free samples of skincare products, fragrance and makeup.


When you place an order on Sephora's website, you are allowed to add up to three free samples to your cart. There are lots of brands to choose from, so you'd be able to try makeup and skincare  from companies like Clinique and Urban Decay. If you are in the UK, there will be some samples that won't be able to be shipped as I found out when I made an order a Sephora order couple of years ago due to restrictions.


L'Occitane offers you the opportunity of adding two free samples with every order you place on their website. I've made a few orders from their website and I've always googled for a code before I order as they have amazing free gifts with purchases over a certain amount so you can get a lot of free extras when you order directly from their website.


We like Benefit's creative packaging and their addictive makeup formulas. Your online orders will bring you the chance to try a few new products for free. Also if you sign up to their newsletter you can sometimes receive discount codes or codes for free extra samples.


Checking out at Smashbox will bring you two free samples. We've had the pleasure to test the Photo Finish Foundation Primer, which is a must-have! You could also choose a free mini mascara sample which is always a great mini to have, especially for travelling.

Laura Mercier 

When you shop online, Laura Mercier enables you to choose two free make-up samples with every order. You can also purchase brands including Laura Mercier from Space NK and they have free sample options at the checkout too.

Bobbi Brown 

Shopping online at Bobbi Brown brings you one free sample. Use this opportunity to try out the Extra Eye Repair Cream, as it's pretty awesome.


Free Chanel is something we do like to see. When shopping online, you get two free samples such as fragrance items, skincare and makeup. Also if you go to a Chanel counter you can ask for samples of foundations and you may receive some with your purchase too.


Lacoste sends out free samples without asking you to make a purchase. All you need to tell them is your name, birthday, gender and email address, and you'll be able to give a try to products such as Eau de Lacoste.


Garnier's free newsletter will let you know about their special promotions, which is great to start with. Even better, signing up qualifies you for free haircare and skincare samples. Additionally, you can purchase Garnier products from Feelunique and they offer free samples on orders over £30.

Have you received any free makeup samples from these brands/websites?
