Here are the samples I drew last time and my thoughts on them:
1.) The Professional Matte Rescue Foundation Primer-Benefit $28 for full size
I’ll be honest, I haven’t used this yet. I have extremely dry skin and live in northern Ohio, so I’ve been avoiding making myself look too matte and therefore dry and cakey, looks like this guy is rolling over to my next set of samples.
2.) Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream Perfume $80 for full size
It’s a nice, light fragrance. It, however, does not last very long on me unlike the original Daisy. It disappears far to quickly and isn’t anything special. WNR.
3.) Origins Night-A-Mins renewal cream $43 for 1.7 oz.
This smells really nice and is nice and hydrating. WCR.
4.) Belif Aquabomb moisturizer $38 for 1.68 oz.
I started using this a bit and it is extremely hydrating and lovely. It has a light fragrance and does good things for my dry skin. I’ve made a large dent in this but I’ve still got a bit left so this rolls over to the next set of samples. WR.
5.) Nexxus hair treatment $15.79 for 4.8 oz.
This actually made my hair really soft and nice feeling. I used it as a conditioner and was honestly really impressed with how far this small sample went. I already have my holy grail conditioner/treatment but if I ever couldn’t find it or needed something else I’d look for this. WR.
6.) Whish body butter (lavender scented)$18 for 5 oz.
I can not stand the smell of this stuff. However, it does moisturize my skin. However, I like to smell like something…that I can tolerate the scent of. I’m glad to be rid of it. WNR.
7.) Philosphy Take a Deep Breath oxygenating gel $40 for 2 oz.
This is okay, it smells nice and works fine. However, it’s nothing special. WNR.
8.) Tatcha moisture rich silk cream $150 for 1.86 oz.
Oh. My. Gosh. This stuff is luxurious and incredible but when I looked up the price tag I was honestly horrified. $150?! That’s crazy! I did find a travel size on Amazon for $33, I would consider purchasing this to see how far I could stretch it while it was still beneficial for my skin. This stuff made my skin so soft, supple and moisturized. I even hoarded and got the most I could out of this sample because I love the way it made my skin feel. WCR.
9.) Shea Moisture facial wash/scrub and mask(s). (It’s a 3 pack). All 3 + extras for $19.
Ugh. I think this stuff was okay as far as cleansing my skin went but the mask made my face itch like crazy and boy does this stuff stink, in the worst way. I couldn’t get through the additional two face products and will be passing them along to the friend because I can’t stand the scent and doesn’t do well for my skin. WNR.
10.) Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizer $32 for 2 oz.
Before I opened this I thought it was the organ oil, however this is a moisturizer. It is very sticky and has a texture like Elmer’s glue which I find off-putting. It does, however, moisturize my skin and make my skin feel nice. I’m not sure I can get over the texture though. WNR.
Stay tuned this week for my next set of samples drawn from my box.
8 samples finished so far! Not too shabby.
