Firstly Happy Birthday to me! I can't believe I am now a full 2 decades old (birthday blog posts to come). But anyway today I am here to notify all you lovely people about the FeelUnique Pick N Mix Sample service. Like a Subscription service you get beauty products sent to your door for you to try out. However thats where the similarities stop. Unlike most subscription boxes you actually get to choose your samples making the samples completely tailored to what you want. The Service costs £3.95 to cover postage however this cost is recovered as FeelUnique send you a code to use against any feel unique purchase for £3.95 so really the service is kind of free. If like me you buy from FeelUnique anyway this really is a great opportunity to get some free samples of your choice. To show you just what happens I thought I'd give the pick n mix service a go myself.
You'll find the service on the feel unique website under the samples tab or here. The process is very simple you choose your 5 samples out of a huge choice of 447 samples. The pick n mix selection is then added to your cart and all you pay is £3.95. You will then receive an email confirmation and follow up email which will contain your £3.95 gift voucher which you can redeem against a future purchase. There is 1 pick n mix sample selection per person, per month but as it is not a subscription there is no pressure to keep buying if you decide its not for you.
The service is very quick and generally takes 3-5 days to receive your samples. The only downside is none of the samples are huge or full size so if thats what you're after you are better looking at somewhere like Birchbox or Glossybox. However as this is technically free it is a good way to try out products before investing in the full size.
Now onto my first pick n mix. The packaging is quite basic as it just comes in a postal bag but it does come with a note from the feel unique team explaining the code and encouraging the use of hashtags to share your pick n mix experience.
Now onto my choice of samples. For my first pick n mix selection I went for products I really wanted to try that potentially have a high price tag for the full size.
Sample 1: Benefit KaBrow Cream Gel Brow Colour with brush. (2X0.1G samples)
Sample 2: First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream (2ml sample)
Sample 3:Kiehls Cilantro & Orange Extract Pollutant Defending Masque (5ml sample)
Sample 4:Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm (5g sample)
Sample 5: Trilogy Everything Balm (18ml sample)
I am excited to try all the products I picked it is a shame that the sizes aren't larger to really see if you like a product before buying it but you really can't complain at a technically free service.
Make sure you check this out if your a beauty lover or just want to trial a couple of products. It really is worth it especially if you'd buy from Feel Unique anyway. Happy Sampling!
