Free beauty samples on the Bionic Beauty blogReady for some beautiful freebies Bionic Beauties??? There are some exceptionally grand ones in this group. Enjoy them! And as always, feel free to post a link to any freebies *you* find in the comments below.

+  Looking for some love for your locks?  Try out the new L’Oreal Triple Resist Advanced Haircare shampoo and conditioner.  The first Q of the short survey asks which blog told you about the freebie – sadly Bionic Beauty is not listed, so just pick another at random.

+  Moisturize your summer skin with a free sample of Eucerin skin lotion when you take their Skin First pledge.  Plus you get to pick which lotion version you’d like to sample!  For the record, I chose the “Professional Repair Extremely Dry Skin” lotion.  Open to USA residents only.

+  Spice up the man in your life -or- just use this fragrance sample to scent your sock drawer… either way, grab a freebie of Dolce & Gabbana The One cologne for men.  Open to Bionic Beauties living in France only.

+  Carefree is offering free sample packs of tampons or liners for Aussie Bionic Beauties.  If you’re a Bionic New Zealander, grab your samples here.

+  Grab your choice of free Poise liner or pads sample packs.  Side note: Did anyone else see the Jennifer Garner movie, 13 Going On 30?  Whenever I hear the word “poise” I can’t help but think of that movie.

+  While this one isn’t truly a beauty freebie, I’m including it since I love the stuff. BioFreeze pain gel helps with my achy joints and ongoing chronic pain – so it might help some of you as well!

+  For salon/beauty professionals only:  Fill out a quick survey and get a free, full-size Invisible Dry Shampoo by Style Edit.

+  For salon/beauty pros only: Enter your salon name, answer a few quick questions, and you can get a free sample of Kenra Volume Hair Spray to test on yourself or your clients.

Are you thinking of enhancing your physical appearance and boosting your mental well-being with cosmetic surgery? The last thing you want to do is blindly rush into it like you would a new haircut. It’s best to weigh your options in order to find a procedure that’s right for you and a doctor who’s qualified to help. Keep the following five tips in mind as you start preparing for surgery and you’ll stand a better chance of satisfaction at the end of the day.

5 Things to Know Before Undergoing Plastic Surgery

  1. Research can make a world of difference. Start your search on the internet, where you can look up and compare procedures, surgeons, dermatologists, and clinics. Most reputable clinics have websites where you can learn more about fees, read patient reviews, and view before and after photographs. You can also verify that a particular doctor is accredited before you even make initial contact. This can save you time and money.
  2. Different surgeons specialize in different procedures. Although many surgeons are jacks-of-all-trades, many specify in a certain area. If you’re interested in an eyebrow lift, you probably wouldn’t want to go to a doctor who specializes in breast augmentation. Surgeons develop reputations over time for being the best at a certain procedure, so narrow down the field to find a doctor suiting your needs.
  3. It’s recommended to have a complete physical first. You may have done your research and decided that you’re ready to go in for a rhinoplasty Sydney at drjeremyhunt.com.au, for example. Yet if it’s been years since you’ve had a standard physical, you may not be ready for surgery just yet. It’s important to have the proper assessments completed before you go in for any surgery, taking note of any medical issues that the surgeon should be aware of. This greatly reduces your chance of complications during and after surgery.
  4. You can have more than one consultation. It’s always a good idea to have a full consultation before the day of surgery. This provides you with the opportunity to discuss your goals and expectations, and to ask any questions you may have. At this time, you can also get a feel for the doctor and whether or not you feel comfortable. If a physician makes you feel uncomfortable or seems overly pushy, don’t be afraid to schedule another consultation elsewhere. You can shop around before making a decision.
  5. Recovery times can vary. You may have a friend who healed from their laser treatment after only 24 hours, but this doesn’t mean that you’ll react the same way. Different types of skin can react in different ways to procedures, and everyone handles surgery differently. Your pre-existing health conditions and genetics will influence how you handle treatments and recover, which is why the consultation is such an important part of the process.

Weigh the pros and cons of surgery carefully before you agree to any procedure. All procedures have potential risks and side effects, so you’ll need to keep these in mind. It helps to make a list of any questions you may have before you sit down with the doctor of your choice, in order to discuss whether you are a good candidate for plastic surgery. With a bit of care and research, you can increase your chances of success!

The Bionic Beauty blog finds free samples of beauty and cosmetics products
I’ve got a multitude of new free samples for you! But first, a note from… well, me….

Over the past month, I’ve had a poll running on Bionic Beauty’s sidebar asking if I should include free samples that require you to login to Facebook and/or “like” something on Facebook. The overwhelming response is that Facebook freebies pretty much suck. But, for those Bionics out there that don’t mind interacting with Facebook to request a freebie, I’ll be including some of them in this, and future, Freebies Found articles. BUT… I will be tagging the FB freebies with a notation. That way y’all can avoid them if you choose, or seek them out if that’s your bag o’ tea. Happy campers, all around, see?!

And now, on to the freebies!

Scent a man in your life with a freebie of Hugo Boss cologne. You can pick from Hugo Man, Hugo Just Different, and Hugo Red. (This free sample is open to the US and many countries worldwide!)

Grab a free sample of L’Oreal’s new Advanced Haircare system by liking their Facebook page, and then filling out the short form. (Facebook freebie, you’ve been warned.)

For Sam’s Club members only – Grab a free sample of Fekkai Technician Color Care shampoo and conditioner. Just visit the special section of the Sam’s website and click the blue “Get Sample” button about half way down the right side of the page.

Many of us are still fighting the dryness of winter… so go ahead and nab this little sample packet of Eucerin Professional Repair Extremely Dry Skin lotion.  Chuck it in your purse and you’re good to go.

And finally, here’s a totally weird freebie… DirectTV users can (apparently) go to channel 111 on their TV to request a sample of Tresemme’s new Platinum Strength hair care.  Since I do not have DirectTV, I’m not sure how, or if, this one works.  If any of you try, I would love to hear how it goes for you! Pretty please?

On a totally unrelated note… anyone going to see Iron Man 3 this weekend? I cannot wait!!!
