Believe it or not, you can walk out of Sephora with a bag full of free samples without making any kind of purchase. Here are some tips on getting those free samples:
- Don’t be afraid to ask for a sample. Explain that you want to try a certain product at home to see if you like it before you make a purchase.
- The Sephora associates are much more likely to take the time to help you if they think you’ll make a purchase today or sometime in the future. Pick up a few products and put them in your basket and you’re much likely to get offered help.
- There are often free samples behind the counter. Don’t be afraid to ask for one, and you may be offered one if you make a purchase.
- You can get a sample of just about any product that Sephora carries. This includes makeup, skincare, and fragrances.
Sephora also has free events that you can attend to get free samples. In the past, they’ve given away free samples of eyeliner, lipstick, mascara, and eyeshadow during these events.
Each time you order online at Sephora, you’ll also get free beauty samples. You can pick 2 free samples each time you order that includes fragrance, skincare, and makeup samples.
Sometimes during certain promotions, you can get even more free samples.
