Back to the Future… Freebies from the past

Free cosmetics and skin care samples found by Bionic Beauty
While some of these free samples were found quite awhile ago in Bionic-land, they’re still open today. If you’ve already requested them, you won’t be able to get another.
But if you’re new to Bionic Beauty…. you might have missed these gems!

  • Everyday Minerals mineral makeup sample kits: These samples are generously sized- they lasted me for months and I still have a TON of the blush left. Anyhow, you *do* have to pay about $4 in shipping & handling. Pick 3 colors of foundation and finishes, plus 1 concealer, plus 1 blush.
  • Sarah Jessica Parker Lovely fragrances: Visit Sarah Jessica Parker’s perfume website and click on the Request a Sample link.
  • Dove Heat Defense Therapy or Intense Damage Therapy hair care: Chose which line you’d like to sample for your personal hair’s needs.
  • Signature Minerals mineral makeup free sample kits: You can choose six (6) different items. You can pick from Foundation makeup, Concealer/Correctors, Mineral Blushes and Bronzers, Eye Shadows (available in pearl, shimmer, matte and metallic finishes!), and Finishing Veils. Crazy, right? The only catch is you’ll have to pay $5.35 for shipping. Still, that’s a small price to pay for SO much makeup!
  • Freebies of the new L’Oreal EverPure shampoo and conditioner: This new drugstore line of hair care products is now one of my absolute favorites. It’s Sulfate-free, gentle and smells delicious. Being sulfate free means it doesn’t strip color from my hair. The added herbals also help with body, moisturizing and overall hair health. If you ladies haven’t tried this line yet, get on it. You’ll give up your high-end hair care… or, at least I did.
  • Pantene ProV shampoo and conditioner: Awhile back, Pantene and Walmart paired up to offer free samples under the marketing campaign slogan “The Secret to Great Hair”. You can still benefit by requesting your sample.
  • Gloves in a Bottle lotion: I reviewed this shielding lotion some time ago (here’s my GiaB review). It’s a great lotion to prevent moisture loss, or I use it on my hands before applying sunless tanner (keeps my palms from turning orange), or around my hair line when coloring my hair. You can get 3 free sample packets by sending GiaB a SASE.
  • Eucerin Aquaphor lotion: Get a free sample size of Aquaphor’s famous Healing Ointment. Perfect for throwing in your purse!

I would really like to try these items before I buy. This is a good idea.

Hi Marge,
First off, I’d like to welcome you to Bionic Beauty!!
I saw that you posted a comment about the “Freebies from the past roundup” on my website, Bionic Beauty (
Unfortunately, you have to request the freebies yourself. I don’t ship anything from my site- it’s basically a beauty magazine like Allure or Ladies Home Journal, but updated daily with makeup looks, discounts, product reviews and freebies. 🙂

In each free sample article, I include a link to the manufacturer/company that is sponsoring the samples. You follow that link and usually complete a form with your mailing address.

Some of the samples go in less than a few hours. For best results, subscribe to Bionic Beauty by RSS or email (there are links to both subscription options in the right sidebar under the section “Subscribe…”). That way you’ll know whenever I post a new article. Also, go to the home page on Bionic Beauty ( and click the FREEBIES link (under the large header graphic/image). This will take you to the latest (i.e. most recent) freebies that I’ve found. They get older as you go back further into the website.

I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any questions! I truly hope to see you around Bionic Beauty in the future. Don’t be shy!
All the best,

I love your site. My computer crashed and with it all my bookmarks! I searched google for “Beauty auctions dogs” and up came Bionic Beauty! I won one of the auctions that you did! Funny! That is how I remember things. Love the freebies links and your product reviews. Thanks so much!

Hi Michelle, I’m SO glad that you found Bionic Beauty again! Welcome back. Sorry to hear about your computer crash… those always suck, bigtime. Ugh.

I’m hoping to launch this year’s round of charity auctions sometime by the end of August or the start of September. Life just keeps getting in the way lately. ha ha!
All my best,
