Default Trial Size Beauty Products

I am looking for a place to purchase trial size face masks and other skin care products. I've tried google but can't seem to find anything that doesn't require going through page after page of beauty products to find ONE overpriced box of something LOL

I'd like something relatively inexpensive, I will be doing these for a birthday part so I will need a few. I don't know if the ladies who also work for Mary Kay, Avon, etc. have samples they can sell (I know there are at least two others, Arbonne, Beauticontrol? sorry!) but I'm open to different brands. I would need to get them in a week or less.

You can send me a message here.
THANKS!

A long time ago (maybe about 3 years ago) I bought a lot of Mary Kay samples of ebay, it was really cheap and I loved trying out everything. I also bought some bare minerals eye shadow samples from there too, but they were a little pricier.

Aloette Skin Care and Cosmetics are awesome. But only have samples of lotions and packets of the Enzyme Peel, and maybe a shower gel. Aloette is the best skin care ever.....

Try this site:
www.minimus.biz
They have all kinds of travel-size items, and you can buy them individually. Maybe they have what you're looking for.

I'd ask a MK rep... I think they buy the samples in big sheets and just tear off what they need.
Sounds like fun. What are you making?

I'm going to use the Bubble Queen set and put the bathtub stamp on cello bag toppers with small bags of bath salts or individaul bubble bath or oils (if I can find them) and use the one of the face and put it the single use mud masks and a nose strip and a single use moisturizer in them (again, if I can find them).
For some reason, I'm drawn more to the little packets than the bottles, I think the bags will be easier to close. A few years ago I was able to get a bunch of different kinds of masks in little pouches at Rite Aid, now I can't find them...GRRRR!

Have you been to Wal-Mart? The super-stores usually have a big wall of travel minis.

My boss wanted me to buy 30 2 oz bottles of hand sanitizer, I ended up buying a case of 4 oz bottles from Costco. The next week I saw the 2 oz bottles at Wal-Mart for a much cheaper unit price on the giant wall of travel stuff.

Thanks so much for the link to that Minimus site. I found it extrememly useful for hiking purposes rather than stamping purposes

I believe that Walmart also carries a line of facial masks that come in one-time use packets. There are several different varieties, some of them even warm up. Don't look in the travel section though, look in with the other skincare items.

Have you tried the Dollar Store? We have a Dollar Tree and I can find small packaged items there at times. HTH

Try L'Occitane. They have a lot of envelope sized samples.
