How to Get Free Beauty Products + Haul


Last week, I came home from vacation to a bunch of exciting products that I was sent complimentary, such as the HSI Flat Iron I discussed in last week’s post.  Often, in exchange for the product you need to give feedback on the product or mention it on social media which is why I am writing this post.  However, I decided to make it more interesting by telling you how to get these products for yourself.  You don’t always need a blog or a following, but it definitely helps to have that.  Without further ado, let’s get into this How to Get Free Beauty Products + Haul post.


Focus Hair Growth Shampoo and Conditioner

Review : The first thing I received was a duo shampoo and conditioner set.  It is enriched with biotin, Argan oil, Hemp seed oil and Ginseng Root extract to improve scalp condition and promote thicker, fuller hair.  I have not tried this set for long yet so I can not attest to their claims.

How to Get It Yourself : I was sent this from a website called Tomoson.  Tomoson is free to sign up for and it offers all kind of products.  Basically, you just apply to either free, discounted, or sponsored products in a wide range of different categories.  You can choose whatever you want to apply for and fill out a short form.  If the brand wants to work with you, they will email you and send you the product in exchange for some sort of review or mention.  It is pretty easy and I also received the HSI flat iron from them.


Evian Facial Spray

Review : The next thing is two travel size Evian facial sprays.  This spray is very refreshing and great for on the go.  At first, I thought this spray was quite expensive at $15 for the two travel sprays.  In addition, the only thing in the bottle is pure Evian water.  However, the spray nozzle is amazing because of how evenly and smoothly the water sprays out. I used it on top of makeup to remove the powdery residue in the makeup look shown below.  I will be traveling with this to hydrate my face throughout the day.  Since I received two, one will be going in a future giveaway!  Subscribe so you don’t miss it.

How to Get It Yourself : I got this product from BrandBacker.  Again, you just sign up for this website and apply for “opportunities.”  If the brand wants to work with you, you will get an email.  Then, you just follow the instructions they give you for how to submit your review.  Or, you can just click this link to buy the facial spray yourself –


BareMinerals BarePro Foundation

Review : I have used this once, but I really like it. I have the shade Silk.  This foundation claims to be humidity, water, and sweat-resistant.  It also claims to have good ingredients and 24 hour full coverage.  I think it made my face look very smooth and even as you can see in the photo below.  I also liked that it has SPF 20 and I would definitely continue to use it and test it more.

How to Get It Yourself : If I could tell you one website to sign up for, it would be Influenster.  Anyone can sign up for the chance to get amazing full size products in a “Voxbox.”  To get these coveted boxes, you simply have to link your social channels and review as much as you can on their site.  For me, I have received two boxes so far and don’t have a huge following or review that much.  Therefore, I don’t think you have to put in too much effort to get these great products.


Sun Laboratories Ultra Dark Lotion

Review : I was actually super surprised by what a great self tanner this is.  I have used it multiple times since I received it and every time I get a flawless deep tan.  Most self tanners I have to properly exfoliate and prep my skin for and even then I don’t apply it perfectly.  I didn’t put much effort at all into prepping my skin for this tanner and there was absolutely no streaks.  It also doesn’t smell bad at all.  So, this is my top self tanner of the moment.


How to Get It Yourself : Sun Laboratories was advertising on Instagram that they wanted “models” to take pictures in exchange for free product so I contacted them.  They agreed to work with me and I posted the picture above.


Square One Beauty Eyeliner and Micellar Makeup Remover Wipes

Review : So far, I only tried the pencil eyeliner.  It was creamy and easy to apply, but it was a silver shade which I use less than a typical black or brown.  However, the pigmentation is great and I don’t have anything bad to say about it.  I am wearing it on my lower waterline in the selfies from before.  Unfortunately, Square One Beauty has only launched fragrances so far, but stay tuned on their Instagram and website for more exciting launches!

How to Get It Yourself : Become a Square One Beauty Ambassador like me!  Click here to make a purchase or sign up to be an ambassador.  If you are approved, you will start out with a free t-shirt or hat and be rewarded with other products as you go along.  Or get two body mists for $25 with the code MISTPROMO.



Overall, I was very happy with the quality of the products I was sent as well as the brands or websites that have sent them to me.  Once again, the website I would recommend the most is Influenster.  If you would rather find small brands on Instagram, try searching for the #promotersearch or #promoterswanted.  Often, there is a bunch of small beauty and clothing brands who are looking for people to promote their products.  I hope this wasn’t too boring, but I thought sharing a little bit of the behind the scenes of blogging PR would be interesting.  Thanks for reading this How to Get Free Beauty Products Haul and stay tuned for more posts coming your way!
