Anyone up for a "SAMPLE SWAP"??

I was thinking. That is dangerous!!

There are some things that I would LOVE to try and you might have them but wish to keep them, and I have some GREAT products that I want to keep (because they are great!) but you may wish to try.

So, would you be interested in a sample size swap? It could be fun and we could each try some new things while keeping our full sized products!!

I have a couple of new, empty 1 ounce bottles, 3 ounce bottles and 8 ounce bottles. I have very sensitive skin so make some of my own body care products so I buy travel bottles at places like Target and other bottles from online sites.

I'd be willing to swap 1, 3 or 8 ounces of:
*DevaCurl One Condition (This is my HG conditioner so I have a bunch of it. Will open a brand new 32 ounce bottle to fill yours.)

1 or 3 ounce bottles of:
*DevaCurl Heaven in Hair (GREAT DT, I also use it as a leave in/curl cream)
*Alba Botanica Strong Hold Gel (Great new gel for me. I get big, soft curls with this gel plus hold)
*Pravana Curl Enhancer Gel (My stylist used this and I had never heard of it. Once she used, I had to buy it! GREAT hold but soft, defined curls)
*MOP C Curl Defining Cream Great curl suitable for ost hair types)

1 ounce bottle of:
*Kenra Moisturizing Conditioner (Great moisturizer. Some use it as a curl cream but it is too heavy for me for that use)

I'd like to sample:

*CJDF
*CJ NEW FORMULA Curl Assurance Gentle Cleansing Shampoo
*CHS CK
*BOOTS PINK Curl Creme
*Biotera Curl Cream
*Biotera Gel

Or, I can be open to product suggestions. Hair properties in my siggy. I can only do U.S. swaps.
PM me if interested!

    Hey, Chick. I've got a huge Biotera gel - I buy it by the liter because Sally's usually offers it 2 liters for $15 about twice a year and I stock up. I love it, because its light/medium hold and perfect for layering over a firmer cream like MOP-C. I use the two together just about every day. :D

    I'm always open to trying new gels though. Want to swap samples of either of your gels for mine? I have some 3oz bottles too:)
    I'm open to whichever gel you think would be a good swap. I'm not familiar with either. I think you know my hair type by now, LOL. You pick the one you think best. PM me :p
    That's me with FSG as my styler!!

    3b. fine & thick, coarse, dry, medium porosity. Sucks up product and loves ACVs! FSG is my HG!

    How about if we PM the person who has something we'd like to try and work out swaps separately.

    That will keep the posts from getting confusing!

    Those of us who are interested in something anyone else has listed here can swap amongst all interested parties!

    So, if you have not yet posted your available sample products and your products wishlist, feel free to do so and we all can play!!
