This is a sample of Catie's Bubble Gardenia. The scent is excellent, I really like flower scents on soaps.

I wanted to try it so badly. But,

Did you notice the little hair at the bottom of the container?

I can't use it after seeing this. 

I am not very luck lately... Undecided

I'm sorry to see the Nikos, I would be the same.

This is what I worry about with samples.

That wouldn't stop me from using it.

Is it a hair, or a spider leg?

The vendor for that sample is Maggard's, not Catie's Bubbles. 

Chris does not sell samples very frequently. 

I would contact Maggard's and ask for a replacement.

Probably a spider led, you're right. But, I'm not sure.

I did and I was refunded. The vendor was very kind.

I didn't expect that to happen. I live in Europe and I can't order very often from the States. The shipping costs are extremely high. Also, we have to wait several weeks to receive them. That's the definition of bad luck.

I wouldn't use it, but that's just me. Similarly, I am not comfortable with make-shift samples from brick-and-mortar display testers--not a fan of human-hand detritus and all.

I agree, gross... and while thinking about it realized I have bought several shaving brushes second hand. Animal hair that was scrubbed up against another persons face, potentially over an area that may have been bleeding, definitely picking up traces of skin...  Even though I used a specialized brush cleanser to sterilize, it gives me the heebie- jeebies in retrospect...

I had the same thing happen to me they'll offer you a refund or credit they don't want to spend the shipping cost to give you what you should have had in the first place

Deuce, exactly that.

They claimed to have doublechecked the order. How that happened? For me, this is unacceptable. I appreciate the refund but I would prefer a replacement!

AFAIK, Maggard uses clean spoons to transfer creams/soaps from new containers. They don't use the display testers.

Never had that happen and I have about 15 samples, 10 of which are from Maggard. I wouldn't use it either though. Bummer.
