Want to try something new, see what products are available, and decide whether there’s something more effective than what you’re using before ordering a full size quantity? Many brands and providers list their range on their website and offer samples, which is a great way of checking what’s available out there. Of course, while they may be ‘free’, they are not to be abused. Only order what you genuinely want to try and not more than you need. There’s no commitment necessary, though some brands like to contact you afterwards to see how you’ve got on with the products, whether you need any further help or assistance; this can be really useful, but you can always politely decline further contact should you wish.
Where possible I have tried to link directly to the product pages, where you can directly order samples of specific items, or to a sample request page. Some sites may require you contacting customer services to ask for a sample rather than completing a dedicated request form. Please note, this post is in no way affiliated to, or sponsored, by any of the named brands.
