Walk in and ask…
Beauty and makeup stores such as Bare Minerals, Sephora and The Body Shop are anxious for you to test their products. So much so, most will give you three to four day’s worth of almost anything in stock – foundation, blush, bronzer, lipstick, lotion and skin-care lines. Bare Minerals even tosses in a mini-brush or applicator.
Stop into any Origins store for a complimentary 20-minute mini-facial. No purchase necessary.
