Shampoo samples etc

something that I really love about Chickadvisir is getting full sized samples.  As part of another sampling site, I occasionally get little one use envelopes.  I find it really difficult to review those things after one try...I can comment on scent, and maybe that one experience, but I don't feel it's a true indication of the product.  Same for moisturizers etc... I really find that you have to use a product for a reasonable amount of time to make a true comment.  I just got a one time use sample of a moisturizer that will reduce wrinkles in as little as 2 weeks...and I have one day to judge.....

I feel the same you need time to use it to decide. You need more than a small sample to try to know if it's for you.

I agree. I know I need to wait at least 3 weeks to a month to see definite results.

That is so true, one usage doesn't give you enough to go on.

There are definitely things that become clearer after more than one use, I don't feel it's a fair test with just one use. I try to test beauty products consistently for at least two weeks before reviewing them.

I totally concur. Sometimes it takes your body time and several uses of a new product to react to it or to take to it. Results rarely happen overnight.

I totally agree but I still love the smaller ones.

Agreed. To be honest, I have such thick, long hair the packet samples aren't even enough for one application. I say for hair you need at least a week and for skin products about 3-4 weeks minimum. Especially those that claim effects (on pkgs they often say results in 4-8 weeks). Makeup and fragrances you can tell usually right away, even though some things you grow to like - maybe you didn't apply or blend properly the first time. Makeup tools like brushes I think you need to play around with using different products. I definitely want large size or full size samples to try most things to determine if I really like them or see results. I don't see how it hurts the company. Word of mouth and customer satisfaction drives sales, which means more money for them, ESPECIALLY for expensive products. I will buy expensive products if they work - and stick with them.

I agree I have very thick hair and not always enough to try. It takes a while to be sure if it works for you.
