Lush Samples | Part One
Years ago there was an option when ordering from Lush to add a note to who was going to put together your order and this is where you could request samples. After a revamp of their website they removed this and replaced it with a note for delivery. I took this as the place to say if you wanted it left with a neighbour if you were out or in a safe place. There is also a section for if it is a gift and you want to add a message to the receiver. I had no idea you could request samples in these two boxes so went a good year or two with no samples before I discovered this while having a browse of Instagram. Since discovering this I have requested samples with every order, usually using the gift box option as you can write more. I have received some amazing samples by doing this so thought I'd share in case you're missing out like I was.
I tend to leave it as a surprise as to what I get by just asking for samples but I have requested one or two specifically for my mum and have gotten really generous sizes. If there's anything you really want to try before buying then it's worth asking for a sample! My mum wanted to try Reindeer Rock Soap as she wanted to know how moisturising it was before buying the full size and she probably received a good 1/4 size chunk of the full size soap! Also look at the size of the shampoo bar in the first photo, it's also a quarter of the size you'd buy in the shop and I got it for free.
By being able to try them out before buying the full sizes I'm actually saving myself money as well. There's a few of the soaps I had on my to try list but found them to be a bit drying on my skin when I've tried the samples so they've been taken off my list. Also the dry shampoo, I'm happy I've tried it but it's just a bit too messy for me and I prefer spray versions.
Do you ask for samples from Lush?
