I love trying out samples, and found these in the bottom of my travel bag earlier which I've used up. Here are my thoughts on them.
I haven't tried anything from Aveeno before and had this sample sachet kicking around from a magazine. Unfortunately, this didn't do anything for my dry skin and in fact, made it feel even more dry and oddly 'tight' after I applied it. Not for me!
(2) Essential Care Creamy Coconut Cleansers*
Essential Care / Odylique do a fab range of mini / try me travel sizes and I've gone through a couple of these cleanser samples in the past. This is a lovely gentle cleanser that's ideal for dry and/or sensitive skintypes. It always makes my skin feel soft and supple afterwards.
(3) Weleda Sea Buckthorn Replenishing Body Lotion
I love Weleda's Sea Buckthorn range and have raved about it numerous times! The scent is gorgeous - so citrusy and uplifting! This body lotion was great, it's light, moisturising and non greasy, thumbs up.
(4) Live Native Beauty Serum*
I was given this sample vial when I reviewed their amazing Cleansing Balm and I really enjoyed trying it out. As with most serums, you only need to use a few drops each time, and their Beauty Serum reminded me of Odylique's Superfruit Concentrate but not as hydrating which some may prefer.
(5) Lavera Mattifying Fluid
A friend of mine is a MUA and she recommended this to me. It's a light moisturiser that gives the skin a matte finish if used alone, or a matte base if used instead of a heavy primer before applying makeup. It works really well, but it did feel a little drying. I'm tempted to try it out again in the summer months though when my skin is naturally more oily.
Have you tried any of these?
