Over the last couple of months I’ve been trying to use up all my beauty samples (I’ve not even made a dent in them) as well as my beauty product cupboard (Same). I have quite a lot of empties so I will do them in batches. The first are the samples that I have used up, here they are:
Dior – Crème Multi-Perfection
Dior claim that after using this straight away you should see that wrinkles are diminished and skin is tightened. Unfortunately I didn’t. I didn’t feel this had any effect on my skin at all. All the other effects should be seen after 4weeks. As this sample only gives roughly a week worth of product at best, you would need to buy the full size product and at £127.00 this is never going to happen. If I can’t see any effect after a week there is no incentive for me to spend so much money on a product. So this was a no go for me.
REN Vita Mineral Active 7 Eye Gel (3ml)
I actually liked using this product, as it is a gel formulation I found it quite cooling on the eye and it left my eye area feeling refreshed. I am a huge fan of REN skincare, their products always seem to deliver on what they claim. This product was no different. I would definitely consider repurchasing this product.
Olay Regenerist 3-point treatment Cream Fragrance Free (7ml)
I have tried this before and I think it’s a fantastic drug store product. It leaves the skin with a super smooth texture, and my fine lines appear reduced! My sister swears by this cream and I can see why. The formula is nice and rich but absorbs quickly into the skin. This product also contains amino-peptides, which help cell communication, which in turn boosts the skin cells ability to repair itself. So this is a fantastic, affordable product. Available from Boots & Superdrug priced £29.99.
Noxidoxi Enhancing Serum Base (25ml)
Noxidoxi is a relatively new French brand, I received this serum in a monthly Glossy Box and I really enjoyed using it. This serum base forms a moisturizing layer over the skin of the face, protecting it from daily pollution and Nicotine (take note smokers). I found that it absorbed really quickly into my skin and left my skin feeling silky smooth. The only thing that put me off was when I squeezed it out of the tube it looked a pit like puss which freaked me out a little. Apart from that it was a fantastic product. It carries a €39.90 price tag which is pretty reasonable for a serum. I would certainly recommend this serum.
L’Occitane Vanilla Bouquet Hand Cream (30ml)
Oh I do love me some hand cream! Some may even call it an obsession! So I like to think of myself of a connoisseur of hand cream and this was amazing. I got this free with a monthly magazine (I can’t remember which) and I am in love. Some vanilla products can be sickly and can give you a headache but this doesn’t do that. It smells delicious and the formula is a really thick cream (containing 20% Shea Butter) but absorbs nicely into the hands. I also love the metallic tube it comes in as it allows you to roll it up and get every last drop out which trust me, you will want to do. This size hand cream usually costs £8.00 and I will most definitely be repurchasing!
Dior Dream Skin Global Age-Defying Skincare
Uh-oh, another Dior product and another disappointment! Again this didn’t seem to do anything to my skin. So I will not be repurchasing this product. Sorry Dior!
So those are some of the products I have been trying out this last two months.
Some are new favourites and some are ..well…not.
Let me know if you have tried any of these products and what you thought of them.
