Sachet Sample Solution.

I love samples, they give us the chance to try out a certain product, form an opinion and decide if its something we need in our lives. Sachet samples however can be a waste of time, the product squidges out everywhere, dries up and just doesnt look like something we would want to put on our skin.
I thought I would do a post to show how I get the most use from samples, I'm sure you all already know all about it but this post could be of use to someone, so here we go.


If I ever receive more than 1 sample of a certain product, I cut them open and squeeze them into a travel pot. You can find these in most chemists, I got mine from Boots and they came as 4 pots which screw together.


In the photos I'm just showing one of each sachet but I had 4/5 of each and as you can see they've both filled the pots.




Hope someone finds this post useful.

    1. I used to do the same, didnt even bother opening them because I knew they'd just leak everywhere.

  2. Cool idea - if I'm honest I just end up throwing my samples away =/ I'll definitely invest in some pots now though!

    1. I've started using them for foundation sachets aswell, you get around a weeks worth from 1 small pot.

  3. Actually such a good, simple idea but I've never thought of doing that! I usually pass on my sachet samples to my mum because I CBA wish them - not any more :)

    1. I would always just throw them away or open and used them once then by the next day they looked really skanky so they always ended up in the bin anyway.

  8. Great post, such a simple but effective idea :D I always tend to save my samples and never really use them but I'm definitely going to get some little sample pots out and start using them, my skin really needs it i think

  9. That's literally such a good idea! I hate when you don't get enough sample in a sachet and it's not really worth trying out! xxx
