TV Dragon thinks he’s onto a winner with service offering free skincare samples

Theo Paphitis, much loved star of TV’s hit show Dragon’s Den, and retail magnate, thinks he’s onto a winner with his latest venture. At his SBS, Small Business Sunday awards, he named a unique, online natural skincare sample service as one of the winners.

The Try Before You Buy service is the brainchild of natural and organic skincare brand owner and founder Angela Langford – a South West based business that allows customers to try hand made natural skincare first, before committing to full size bottles.

Angela’s business was retweeted by Theo Paphitis during his weekly SBS competition, whereby he chooses the six best business ideas tweeted to him using the hashtag #SBS.

The idea behind her Try Before You Buy skincare service is simple – Angela wants customers to be totally happy with their skin. She recognises that we are all different and like different things so that’s why she introduced this unique tailored concept – as Angela explains…

“Customers who register on my website are asked to complete details about themselves and their skin condition. They then order a free Natural Skincare Sample Pack.”

I use this information to select several samples I think will best suit their individual skin type and address their major skin concerns.

“The feedback I have received from customers has been amazing.”

The sample packs are free, Angela just asks customers to pay for postage & packaging. Each pack comes with full details about the samples including a full list of ingredients – in both Latin and plain English so customers can actually understand what is in each product.

Angela’s natural skincare service continues to be bespoke throughout the buying process, including free samples with all full size orders – allowing customers to buy with complete confidence.

Talking about her Theo Paphitis #SBS win, Angela was very excited to have been recognised for her skincare sample service…

“I am thrilled that my skincare sample service has been recognised in this way. I think it is a great way for Men and Women to try my natural skincare products first and make sure the products are right for them and their individual skin.”

“Since being announced as a winner, my Twitter follows have rocketed, visits to my website have increased dramatically and I am now talking to lots of people about my business – so I have to thank Theo for choosing my brand and I can’t wait to meet him later this year!”

Angela Langford has been the recipient of many awards in recent times; including a ‘Best Serum’ gong in the 2013 Green Parent Natural Beauty Awards, as well as two other ‘Best Of’ titles in the 2013 Free From Skincare Awards.
