    As others have mentioned, place the sample in some kind of container/bowl/scuttle/etc and load your brush.
    I usually rub the whole sample on my face and face-lather.

    ^2 scuttles/mugs/bowls/jars, etc.
    Whatever will allow you to make nice lather.

    Thanks for the advice fellas! Appreciate the links and ideas. I guess I was getting caught up in the fact that these samples are provided in tins and jars similar to their bigger versions and the idea that somehow they have some utility. Seems like this isn't the case and they may as well have been given out in baggies...
    I'll start just shaving off bits and trying it that way. I do like the ideal of scooping all the bad ones out and mashing them all together, that sounds like a good bit of fun!

    Took the advice to just mash it up and put it in a container. Mostly because it sounded fun, and partly because I like the idea of free soap... The result?

    Not the best-looking soap ever. Also not the best smelling... smells like some sort of feminine christmas-y Old Spice knockoff. Better than nothing though. The lather, however, is surprisingly good. I'm thinking about using it as my travel soap for a no-fuss soap that I don't care much about

    It was 1/4 of what I have. The rest will be more of a "themed" blend
