Suncare Samples - Up to 5 ml
For a small payment, we are happy to provide you with sample(s) of any of the products listed in the drop down menu. You may order up to six samples in any one order. Our samples are offered in good faith and they are designed for one or two uses only. They are ideal to test aroma, texture, colour on skin and for possible allergic reaction. We supply the samples in 5 ml pots, however, the amount of actual product within the pot may be less depending upon whether the sample is shampoo, skincare or makeup. Our standard postage and packing rates apply to samples.
We are also happy to send 'smudges' of our makeup products; for instance, our eyeshadows. If you require some free smudges, please make a note of the colour code or colour and enter the details in the message box available when you checkout. Alternatively, please do ring us on 01403 790913 if you need some help - we can then help you choose smudges to match your exact requirements! No postage is charged for smudges.
Good Review by Beth
I have tried the sun cream samples. So far so good - no allergic reaction. Iam just going to order some more now.
REPLY from Amanda: Fingers crossed Beth - I really hope this suits as I know you are having problems finding something! (Posted on 7/7/10)
excellent products Review by TJ
My very pale-skinned boyfriend & I (mediumly pale!) tried these products for the first time in hot, sunny south Portugal recently, using them partly as protection on the usual vulnerable parts (ears, neck, upper calf - our shoulders remained covered throughout!) before going in the sun ... & partly as protection from further sun after going a bit pink on un-treated parts! (my top of forehead & front above neckline, both our forearms)
We started off with the SPF25 & worked down to the SPF8.
All worked very well "exactly as it says on the tin"!
Re the "Bug n Sun", sorry we didn't really give that a try as there were no bugs around (phew!) but I expect it works equally efficiently.
As for the very small size of the samples (which the company very kindly & thoughtfully warned me about by individual e-mail prior to our hol!), this wasn't a problem - I'd seen on the website that they're "up to 5ml" each - & they turned out to be in very handy little pocket-sized pots (mostly nearly full) - we probably got through about half of one sample in total, because they went surprisingly far, even though deliberately NOT spread thinly (& also because, as above, we only used them on small, most vulnerable areas - neither of us had ever used sunscreen before but also weren't used to hot climates!) -
I don't know how long the remainder will keep for but I'm going to put them in the fridge & hope for the best! (Freezer would obviously work even longer but I dunno if that'd adversely affect product efficacy/safety.)
We used the Carribean Blue SPF25 but not the Paul bla SPF22 as that was rather runny (except when cool before leaving UK!).
& some of the pots could've been better labelled - I completed the labels by a process of deduction! - but this wasn't difficult as most of the information was there - I mainly wanted to put the SPF on each of them, for quick safe reference.
REASON FOR RATING:
Neither of the above notes were really a problem - the only reason I've given the product 4 stars not 5 was the price for "up to 6 x 5ml" = up to 30 ml - that was a comparatvely good price for the more expensive (but runnier) Paul bla SPF22 but not for the comparatively cheaper (but less runny / more useful) Caribbean Blue, which was 5 of the 6 samples.
I hope this is of help to anyone.
REPLY by Amanda: Thank you TJ for your comprehensive trial of our Caribbean Blue Suncare products on your holiday in Portugal. Just a quick comment regarding your final point on Reason for Rating and the price: We would not normally ask customers to rate samples but our system does not allow us to do otherwise. Samples are purely provided to allow our customers to try before they buy the full size, and therefore the price of all samples is currently the same regardless of the price or quantity of the product. We do not make any profit on samples, and therefore we ask that customers only purchase these if they need to try out products first before buying and not as a substitute for the full size. This will help us to continue to provide this service! (Posted on 5/6/10)
