I’m still working my way through my sample stash, if you want to read my first post you can click here. I have been routing in the sample drawer and picked out a couple of new things to try. It’s like going shopping without spending any money. I have also looked out a few things from the sample drawer to take with me on holiday next week. So keep an eye out for that post
First up are two travel brushes one from Eco Tools (pink handle) which is from their Fresh & Flawless Set & is ideal for applying bronzer & blush. I love this brush it is so soft & just the perfect size for your makeup bag. The second brush is from Sonia Kashuk and this is what I have been using for my eyebrows, it’s the perfect angle & is quite stiff but not scratchy. These will be coming with me to Amsterdam too.
I totally forgot I had this. I think It came in the Glossybox collaboration with Harrods (so long ago). It is a gorgeous light serum, it leaves my skin so smooth and soft. I have only used is a couple of times & I am excited to see how my skin looks after a week or so. This is quite a pricey serum so I’m expecting to be wowed.
This could quite possibly be heaven in a bottle. It smells botanical and very relaxing which is no surprise as there is lavender & ylang-ylang in it, a couple of drops of this in your bath is all you need. It’s lovely after a long stressful day. If you enjoy taking baths then these Aromatherapy Associate Oils are luxurious but not too expensive.
I haven’t used this yet but I have tried a couple of other products from this Essential C Line & like them. This one is meant to hydrate, brighten and soften the appearance of fine lines. I’m an eye cream junkie & always on the lookout for that perfect one so I’m hoping this could be it.
I have had this for the longest time too & usually use my Garnier Summer Body Moisturising Lotion & really like that, although it can take a couple of days to get a good amount of colour. With this Palmers one it’s like one application & a couple of hours later you have the most beautiful tan. It looks like you have been somewhere tropical & expensive on holiday. I can’t get over how even the colour is and how natural but deep the colour was. I even topped it up over the next 3 mornings & it looked amazing. My skin looked glowing, tanned and felt so soft. It lasts for ages (a good week) too & doesn’t go patchy. Oh and as with all Palmers Cocoa Butter products, it smells incredible. I am in love with it.
Could a mask be any more amazing?? I think not. If you suffer from breakouts, blackheads or just unruly skin this mask is like a miracle worker. It’s quite thick and does tingle a little but it’s not uncomfortable. My husband loves to use it too, mainly on his nose as he gets blackheads & we have tried quite a few products to help reduce them but this mask does its jobs & clears them up. It must draw out the sebum & grime leaving you with clean, smooth and glowing skin. I will be buying the full size of this mask & think its worth every penny.
I have been using this for a while now and LOVE it. Its a serum but slightly thicker in texture than your average serum. I pat it under my eye & over my lid too and instantly your eye area looks plumper, tighter and hydrated. Another miracle worker for sure. I have almost used this up & I’ve liked it so much I’m going to have buy the full size.
How cute is this tiny sample? I have never tried a NARS base before and am very excited to give this a go. I’m hoping this gives a light coverage & helps my skin look healthy and fresh. I enjoy wearing tinted moisturisers & BB Creams so fingers crossed this works for me. Oh & I like that this has SPF30 in too.
Let me know if you have tried any of the samples I’m using or let me know what samples you have recently used up.
