honestly I don't see the point in free samples for us as buyers, sure it good for the sellers as marketing. PeTeR also brings up a good point ive never thought of before and I think I agree.
and anyway reviewing items on your personal preference is pointless and irrelevant to me. what you like or what your standard is, is probably completely different from mine. ive ordered item people say "best I ever had" and turns out it worst I ever had! or if someone say "best taste ever" and turns out it tasteless to me! I have experienced this over the years I been here.
reviews should be on stealth, communication, sellers description accuracy, item photo was actual item received but never on your opinion of the item. and that's my opinion!!!
