Sample sizes have been a part of marketing in the beauty industry for a while, but in more recent years the industry for sample size packaging has become more competitive. One example of this is Qosmedix, a beauty packaging company that has a wide range of nearly 30 sample size containers. According to Qosmedix, there has been a recent influx in demand for sample size beauty packaging because of subscription box services like Birchbox and Ipsy. Other reasons for the increase in demand for sample size containers are brands who sell travel size products, waste-not-want products, and dose-control products. Brands like Qosmedix plan on taking advantage of this demand by expanding their sample size container portfolio.
