Remember when we told you about the really expensive skincare products at La Prairie? Well, we just heard that the company is giving them away for free. Well, not full-size bottles, of course, but actual decent-sized samples in actual mini bottles and tubes—meaning no janky packettes to squeeze. All you have to do is stop by a La Prairie counter at Bloomingdale's, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom or Saks Fifth Avenue next week for a skincare consult with a beauty advisor. They'll talk to you about the products and dish out samples best suited for you. [Racked Inbox]
