product samples Share: do you go to a counter to ask for samples?

It’s been two years since I mentioned that I don’t really fancy the idea of samples so has that changed? Well, not really. I still don’t fancy samples that much especially if they come in loose packets as I find them messy to use. I really prefer to test the products at the counter. But granted, some products can do with product samples – foundation is one example. However, unless I am offered, I usually don’t ask for them, especially if I haven’t purchased any items from the counter. Er…I actually feel a little awkward to ask for them even though I sometimes want to. So why do I feel this way since the samples are supposed to be given anyway?

Just the other day, someone whom I hardly know started asking if I was feeling unwell. I was perfectly fine, just a little sleepy maybe. But this woman wouldn’t give up. She started suggesting to everyone around us that I wasn’t looking well because my face was too pale or in her words, “too white”. I smiled and turned away, not keen to pursue any further conversation with her because I didn’t want to have to retort that looking white is better than looking yellow like her.

Before the days of the Internet, I used to set aside a small sum each month to purchase hard copy magazines. Some of them are female-centric content, while others are on home improvement or entertainment. But since I-don’t-know-when, I’ve stopped purchasing them altogether. The only magazines I still read are those at the hair salons and in a way, I’m glad for this change because I no longer have to deal with the sentimental issue of magazine disposals.

I’m still on a blogging hiatus because of some work I need to clear off but I miss this space and wanted to say hello! Since I was going to say hello, I thought I might as well just ask you a quick question regarding your preference of eye products as it’s something that I’ve been mulling over recently.
