Beauty Freebies: Frequently Asked Questions

Some of the best freebies available on the Web come in the form of beauty products and cosmetics. Just like in the “brick and mortar” world where a trip to the department store can uncover several free makeup and fragrance testers, the Internet serves up many beauty-related goodies. Demand for beauty freebies is extremely high online as you might expect, so claiming yours early is often the best course of action. Below, we outline some frequently asked questions.

What beauty products are available in the UK?

You can claim a variety of beauty items when searching for free stuff in the UK. Typically, you’ll see makeup like foundation, lipstick and mascara, but anti-ageing serums, free in-store consultations, and even free haircuts exist. Fragrance samples in the form of aftershave and perfume are also extremely popular, especially if the manufacturer has recently launched a new fragrance product or flanker to an existing line.

Are the offers free with no catches?

All the freebies above are genuine with no catches or payment requirement. When you request a freebie, you will usually be asked for your e-mail address and postal address (so the company can send you the sample). Companies must keep your personal details safe and secure by law. In many cases, you will also be asked to register for an e-mail mailing list to claim a freebie. You can unsubscribe from these at any time. However, we recommend you sign-up for a secondary e-mail address so you can keep any promotional e-mail messages separate from your work or home account.

Is it worth registering for beauty clubs?

Many brands in the UK offer free membership schemes where you can test out beauty items as and when available. The Body Shop is one example, but Marie Claire, Boots, Debenhams and others have similar schemes. It can be very worthwhile signing up to beauty clubs as you will have the chance to test out brand new beauty products.

Can I get beauty stuff delivered by post?

Yes. In fact, many of the samples available will get delivered to your doorstep. This is often true if you request a fragrance sample or an item of makeup. But some offers will require you to attend a venue in person, such as in-store to collect a freebie. Examples of in-store freebies include personal skincare consultations. Occasionally, you may also have to take a voucher into a store to claim a product sample.

How can I keep updated with new beauty stuff?

We update this page with the latest beauty samples as and when available. But if you want to ensure you never miss out a freebie, be sure to subscribe to our newsletter. Simply fill out the short form above with your e-mail address. We send a regular roundup of free stuff to your inbox. Don’t forget, you can also follow us on social media for instant freebie alerts. We don’t spam you with offers — just the most important ones!
