Which brands are offering free gifts with purchase?

Many niche beauty retailers include a free gift with subscription these days, but some are more generous than others. We like the free gifts from the following brands.

  • Biossance. The brand that brought us sugarcane-derived squalane throws in a free Healthy Skin Trio when you spend at least $50.
  • Drunk Elephant. Spend over $55 and get a Deluxe Sample Smoothie set for free, which includes samples of three different products from this cult fave skincare brand.
  • Origins. Get free GinZig goodies when you spend at least $55 with this plant-powered skincare company.
  • Sephora. You can pick your own free gift with a $25 purchase. These are trial size, not single-use samples, which we appreciate.
  • Ulta. Your free gift is tailored to your purchase. For instance, if you spend $35 on Urban Decay products, you’ll get a 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil for free.
  • U Beauty. When you buy a 50 ml bottle of its Super Smart Hydrator, U Beauty will include a travel size version for free.
