Calling all product junkies

We pump hundreds no no probably thousands of dollars into our local beauty supply stores each weak and I think some of them have been holding out on us. A few posts back I told you about my hair care specialist, the nameless man who works in a beauty supply store that I frequent. Well one day he asked me to wait before leaving the store, and when he returned he slipped a ton of samples into my bag. He wanted me to try out a variety of products by this company called Hydroveil (my review is coming soon). Did you have any idea that these beauty supply stores receive free samples? It makes sense though right? Of course companies when shipping products will throw in free samples to say thanks, or just to whet the appetite of customers but I ask have YOU received your free samples? I mean dang at least offer me something when you see that I spend my hard earned cash in your store weeks on end. What can the store owners do, eat the samples? I mean really don't be greedy share your spoils with the public aka your customers.
Ladies have you ever had your eye on a particular product but you were not ready to actually make the purchase? Instead of using your money only to discover that the product is a dud, find out if your bss has any free samples ---I know I will.

Hey PJD,

You mean to tell me they have free samples of these products and don't share it with their customers?? Well that is so great of your hair specialist to sneak some in your bag! PJD maybe one day you could open up your own beauty supply store and just think how great you'd treat your customers by giving them samples and great hair advice! :-)

Love your blog! Keep it up.

You sound as surprised as I looked when I saw all of those samples being thrown into my bag. I would like to have a hair related venture at some point in my life because I really do enjoy testing things out and assisting other people.....stay tuned and thank you for your support.

Girl, you know I'm adding this post to my blog tomorrow. I'm all about the free. It's like going to the dermatologist's office. They have free samples of meds, too. You cracked the code, girl.

You know who else gets a lot of free products? Magazine editors/writers. Friend up some of those folks who work at glossies.

Thanks Frugalista,
I do have a pal who works for a publishing company, but she does not get free samples and that is as close as I get to the world of glossies. If you are reading J are you holding out on me..have you secretly been securing free samples? lol
