If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that I love travel sized beauty products. I just love mini things in general. Most of these products I have actually gotten for free! Read more to learn how.
The Chanel La Nuit De Chanel is a night moisturizer that I received as a sample from my order on the Chanel website. All orders on the Chanel website come with two complimentary samples and a complimentary keepsake gift box so if I plan on ordering anything Chanel, I usually try to do it directly from their website because of all the extra goodies included.
The Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil, Belif Hungarian Water Essence, Farmacy Skin Dew Hydrating Essence and Drunk Elephant B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Gel have all been gift with purchases on Sephora. Sephora has the best offerings of deluxe samples. In my opinion, it’s always more worth it to order online because of the samples you get. Even when I need to buy makeup like foundation or concealer, I’ll test it in stores but still order it online to get the four samples – three normal samples + usually a travel-sized mini product.
The Estee Lauder Synchronized Recovery Complex II and Skin Inc. Pure Deepsea Hydrating Mask weren’t deluxe samples but they’re both still from Sephora. They were 100 point rewards so I picked them up in recent orders. The key to maximizing your points to redeem for rewards is to wait to buy expensive purchases (fragrance, serums, etc.) until Sephora has a deal where they offer 2x, 3x or 4x the amount of points per $ spent. Sephora is actually having that deal right now until the end of 9/17.
The Tatcha Radiant Deep Brightening Serum came in an order during one of Tatcha’s gift with purchase promotions. It was a deal where if you spent $150, you received a makeup bag, the Gold Camellia Lip Balm and a choice of one of the travel sized products so I selected the Brightening Serum. Tatcha is another company that includes a lot of complimentary goodies with your orders so when I need to get anything from Tatcha, I’ll get it directly from the website rather than from Sephora.
The only two products that aren’t gift with purchases are the Origins Super Spot Remover and the Purlisse Pur-Eye Adore Serum. The Super Spot Remover is actually the full sized product – it’s only 0,3 ounces and the Pur-Eye Adore Serum came in a travel set which is why it’s so tiny.
I’ve always been a lover of samples and travel sized products so if you’re interested in reading more about them, such as my post on how to get free Aesop samples, you can go through the tag here!
