I am feeling a bit uninspired about my blog lately :[ I'm not sure what it is.
Here are some samples that I have been liking and disliking lately along with a sample size but real product, haha.
Some are old, new, from monthly beauty boxes, counters, or magazines.
I want to hear your feedback too! I don't ask you guys questions just to get my comment numbers up - I do want to hear what you thoughts are! Have you tried any of the samples below? If so, what did you think?
These are not all the samples I have liked/disliked in the past month or so, only a few! I love samples, though, and wanted to share. :)
I haven't tried the Jane Iredale glow time BB cream yet (the gold sachet), it came with november Joliebox. Have any of you tried it? I'm excited, but I'm so into using my Pure BB cream, I haven't thought to sample it yet! And once I open sachets, they don't keep, so I'm waiting until I definitely feel like trying it!
I'm a little on the fence about the balance Me face moisturizer. It's okay but I wasn't taken aback by it so I kind of forgot about it. I use the sample every now and again... I won't purchase it.
The Burberry perfume sample I got in novembers Glossybox. It's really not my kind of scent at all.
This wake me up Rimmel London shimmer touch in Radiant Rose looks like a sample size, but this is in fact the full size product. I bought this when I got a sample of the wake me up foundation (ask the Boots/Superdrug sales people for a sample, I always do!). If you haven't asked them before if you could take a sample home, do! They can be really helpful and surprisingly, the tubes can last a while, too.
I tried a little of this in the shop when I was given a sample of wake me up, and I liked it so much I bought it. It's only £4.99. It's a great cheek tint and I think I'm going to repurchase it.
The Rimmel BB cream sachet was from a magazine, and the tube was from Boots. I wasn't sure if I liked it after just using the sachet so I got a bigger sample in the shops when I asked if I could take one home. I have only tried it a few times and compared to my regular BB cream (Pure) I haven't been using it, or liking it as much.
I actually liked this primer, and was tempted to buy the product because it's only cheap, it's £3.99 in my Savers. It felt lovely on my skin, smells fresh, and kept my make up on (I had two of these with the last issue of Glamour) but my BB cream I use keeps my make up on too so maybe that's why this primer seemed to work, lol. I also don't have dry skin right now, especially not after using the Nivea night cream, so it didn't really have to hydrate any dry problem areas on my skin. I haven't tried the sample without using my BB cream, I should probably do that...
Anyway, I was going to buy this but last month I bought a Nivea toner and night cream. A little review is in my november favourites/empties here. I don't like either the toner or night cream, so it's put me off buying another Nivea product. :/ What do you think? Should I go ahead and buy the Nivea primer and give it a shot even though I didn't like the toner and night cream?
If you're interested, I also used Dr. Jart BB cream sample which I got in november Glossybox. I didn't like it, though, and my review is here.
