I recently discovered this website that allows you to sample products before you can buy the actual product. TryorTrade has samples from reputed brands listed on the website. They have brands like Malia Bar, Nirvaaha, Vedantika Herbals. They also have Rustic Art and Tvam listed, but I did not see their samples listed in the month of March. A lot of samples have been added from when I shopped the last time, so yes they do add/delete samples. The samples are delivered in a rectangular black box and is packed well. No leakages considering I had picked up a sample of an olive oil bottle.
What did I buy?
I picked a face pack from Nirvaaha, basil infused olive oil, Vedantika ubton and the Nirvaaha face scrub. I paid approx 78 INR including the shipping for these samples. You can actually get some samples for free without paying for it! What I liked about this website is that I can choose what I want. I have noticed that the prices change for the samples by a few rupees. Nothing that will pinch your pocket though! Click here to buy some samples.
On TryOrTrade.Com we help consumers discover new niche and interesting brands through sampling. Our model is simple, we list samples of amazing products in healthy food, wellness and beauty. Consumers can pick any 4 samples of their choice we ship it to them in a beautiful box.(Av cost. Rs. 100-125, including shipping)
How much did I pay?
It depends on the samples that you choose. Samples range from INR 0 and above. No matter what product you pick, you have to pay a flat rate of INR 14 per product. You can choose lesser products if you wish you, but it makes sense to choose 4 to get the optimum use of the sampling.
Can I buy the full size product if I like the sample?
At the moment tryortrade is not selling the full size products, but they plan to do so in about a month’s time. So, I suggest you to sign up with them to know more about what they have to offer. The samples I chose, especially the Nirvaaha ones are good enough to last at least 4 uses. So I am not stuck with a teeny sample wondering if it did suit my skin!
What’s my take?
I like the concept. Unlike the beauty boxes doing the rounds, I find this option economical because I can get to choose my own samples at about 30% of the cost of the beauty boxes. I’ll be visiting them often!
One suggestion to the tryortrade team though: It would be nice if you could send a mail with regular updates on the samples that you have up for grabs. Makes my life easier than to go and check what is new and what is not! And yes, I definitely want to see more brands and a larger variety!
What I have for you is the coupon code Elegant to get a flat 25% off on the samples you want to buy! So go ahead and enjoy.
