I’m a bit of a sample nerd. I got into signing up for free samples about a year ago when I thought couponing could be a hobby.
In that time, couponing has slowed down for me, but I continue to spend a few minutes every now and again checking out my favorite blogs for for free samples. The nice thing about samples is, in many cases, you get a trial or full size product to try for free. Many companies use these promotions to send new productions out to consumers and get you to purchase more if you like it.
One sample I recently received was from Pantene.
The company sent me a sample bottle of its new Silky Moisture Whip after I signed up for the promotion on Facebook.
The whip — a silky concoction that comes out as fluffy as whipped cream — is to be used on damp hair as a leave-in treatment. Advertised as the new “all in one” treatment, the Silky Moisture Whip is supposed to decrease frizz while adding volume.
I’ve used the product several times this week and am pretty happy with it. A dollop of moose spread from ends to roots left my hair shiny. After blow drying straight, I didn’t need to use my straightener to finish it up. So it helped me save time when I needed to get out the door.
Silky Moisture Whip smells good and doesn’t appear heavy. I would consider buying a bottle once my sample runs out. A full-size, 5.29 oz. bottle sells for about $7 at the drugstore.
