§ 6818-a. Cosmetic samples. 1. No person engaged in the business of
selling cosmetics shall provide for the use by or application to

that have been cleansed before each use or application. The provisions
of this section shall be deemed to have been satisfied if written
instructions on the use or application of cosmetic samples pursuant to

display of cosmetic samples. Nothing contained in this section shall
prohibit the use or application of cosmetic samples by persons trained
to apply cosmetics to customers in accordance with the provisions of
this section.

2. Notwithstanding any other provision of this article, a violation of
this section shall result in a civil penalty of one hundred dollars for
the first offense and a civil penalty of two hundred fifty dollars for a
