Sample Reviews.

I feel like I've been over run with samples and testers, from blogging events and signing up online, so I thought it was about time I made a little 'mini review' post. These are a mixture of samples, some I've loved and some not so much - so I will just get on with it..

NUDE Cellular Renewal Moisturiser - I was so excited when this arrived, alongside one of their facial oils and I couldn't wait to try it. Unfortunately I was very disappointed, I have VERY dry skin and this was wayyy to greasy and oily for me. I don't tend to wear make up for work but this made me look very shiny so I had to re-wash my face and start my skin care routine again. Not for me I'm afraid.

Purchase full size? Nope!

Glam Glow Youth Mud Mask - This was again something I was really looking forward to trying. And again something I didn't enjoy using. If you have sensitive skin in any way, this probably isn't for you. It burns, and burns badly. I had to take the mask off within about two minutes because my skin just couldn't handle it. I guess if your skin is pretty tolerant of things this would be great for you, but it's certainly not for me. I do have the Super-Mud mask to try, which is apparently not as harsh, so I think I will give that a go.

Purchase full size? No thank you.

Kiehl's BB Cream - This I love. I picked this up in House of Fraser to try purely for the SPF 50, and fell in love. It's £20ish a bottle, which I don't think is bad, considering this little 3ml sample gave me 4 applications. This has a really nice coverage, non-greasy and is probably the closest colour to my skin tone in a BB cream, that I've come across. Love this product, I even went into Selfridges to try and get another sample but they only had darker colours left.

Purchase full size? Probably in the Summer

Dr Organic Virgin Coconut Oil Skin Lotion - This smells gorgeous, and is so soothing on your skin. It's quite a runny, milky texture and a little seems to go a long way. It's lovely when my back decides it wants to break out, this really helps to cool and calm.

Purchase full size? Yes. 

Green & Spring Relaxing Shower and Bath Foam - This is gorgeous. I managed to get this from What's in my Handbag, with a set of some other bits and bobs. I'd been dying to try some Green & Spring products, and this didn't disappoint. It's really foaming and makes the perfect bubble bath, this little bottle lasted a good four/five baths too. It also smells yummy and makes your skin feel soft and luxurious. 

Purchase full size? Maybe - it's a little pricey.

Macadamia Nourishing Leave In Cream - I love this product, it really does exactly what it says on the tin. This smells divine and is so simple to use, literally just comb it in after you've washed your hair and style as normal. It leaves my hair so, so soft and really healthy looking. I've already been eyeing up the Macadamia products in TKMaxx.

Purchse full size? Yes

Nivea In-Shower Body Moisturiser - Another product I love, I got this sample before all the adverts started and was so excited to try it. I love that this product has almond oil in, so it's kind of a due for the L'Occitane product. I had to read the instructions when I first got it, and then relised it's just the same as a hair conditioner, so you apply after washing. This feels like a really high-end product and is a real treat in the shower. This comes in one for dry skin with the almond oil, and I think the other is normal skin - but I've not tried that one.

Purchase full size? Already have

What samples have you been trying?
