But, it seems that most UK websites are stingy with their free samples........

Ho hum....

Any suggestions?

Never had any luck getting freebies - even tried Ebay and nothing doing. Have you looked at Good stuff and much of it is dirt cheap.

Yes, but i was hoping not to pay anything

then you have shipping

what are you after vvq

VeniVidiVickiQV · 16/11/2006 21:35

Oh anything cod. I need some new make up moisturisers and bronzers and cleansers and oh everything, and I genuinely honestly cant afford to buy it atm. If you saw my make up bag at home you would recoil in horror .......

websites rubbish for free stuff

you have to go to a dept store and ask at the counters - good line is 'My mum/mate etc said that your Foundation X / Cleanser Y / Bronzer Z is really good, and I'm thinking of getting some but I have really sensitive skin and I'm worried I'll react to it. Do you have a tester I could take home and try before I come back and buy a big bottle?'

(works well on Clinique counters as they often have spare Bonus Time stuff rattling around)

Ah, mrs badger....good plan! They dont do tester sized lipsticks though, do they?

the Bonus Time free lipsticks are full size - even better!
