I just needed to do a shout out to Mario Badescu. A friend told me about their awesome strawberry scrub the other day & I wanted to try it. I emailed the company asking if they sold it in a travel size container so I could try it before I paid for a full bottle. I have very sensitive skin, so trying products out before I commit to the full size is important to me.
They replied to me saying that they don't make a travel size, but that they wanted to send me a FREE SAMPLE of it to try out. I offered to pay for shipping for the sample, but they insisted on it being entirely free. (That alone makes me want to buy from them.)
I was pleasantly surprised by the sample they sent. It was 5 times as big as the samples I've been receiving from Birchbox. . . & it was FREE.
They sent me a nice letter along with a catalog of their products & 2 large sample containers of their strawberry scrub. One container was a generous amount, but TWO? Incredible.
I really liked this scrub. It smells amazing (like fresh strawberries & cream) & has little strawberry seeds inside to help exfoliate the skin. It's a VERY GENTLE scrub for people with sensitive skin. I loved the whipped texture & the way it made my face feel & smell. I will be purchasing the full size in the near future. . . as soon as I run out of my samples.
Thank you Mario Badescu for the nice surprise. You guys just earned yourselves a new customer for life.
