Aesop: The Brand With The Best Samples (+ Tips On How To Get Them For Free!)

Processed with VSCOcam with a6 preset

Aesop is one of my all time favorite brands. I frequently pop into their stores around the city whenever I pass by and have a few minutes to spare. Their packaging is absolutely beautiful and the interior of the stores is impeccable in design. The employees are well-versed in finding the perfect product for every skin type and I always leave with a handful of Aesop samples to test out!

If you know me, you’ll know that I’m obsessed with beauty samples. I just love the individual packaging and design and opportunity to test new products. Aesop by far has some of the best designed sample packaging. Plus, their stores are stocked with entire drawers full of samples.

There are several ways to get free Aesop samples. The first is pretty simple. You receive free samples when you make purchases both online and in stores!

The second way works if you live near an Aesop store. You can talk to one of their specialists and they’ll match you with products that would work best with your skin. I have really sensitive skin so they are always willing to give me some samples to test out at home before I make any purchases! The best part is that the samples come in a cute brown paper bag. If you live near a store, I definitely recommend popping in. The sales associates don’t pressure to buy anything if you don’t want to and you get a chance to use the products and the cool sinks that they have in the stores. Plus, they even serve Aesop tea, which consists of licorice, rose and peppermint.

Recently, I was talking with a skincare specialist in the store and he gave me a travel sized Rind Concentrate Body Balm for free right before I left! I’m obsessed with how good it smells (like a fresh squeezed orange) and how it doesn’t make the skin greasy but is still super hydrating. Plus, the full sized balm is packaged in a foil tube, which I absolutely love. I definitely plan on picking up the full sized version of this product plus a few others on my next trip into the store.
