Last month, I noticed that my samples stash was getting way out of control again (I'm blaming too many online orders and GWPs!), so I've finally made an effort to use some of them up! Here are my thoughts on these five and whether I would purchase the full-size product or not.
I've gone through a bunch of these sachets recently as I seem to have accumulated quite a lot of them from various places. I've used other products from Dr. Organic's Snail Gel line before so I wasn't squeamish about it (I know some people just can't bear the thought of it!). This one is mixed with Aloe Vera and Hyaluronic Acid, so it's like a clear gel that you can apply instead of a serum in your routine. It feels cooling on the skin and works really well at calming down any redness and irritation, whilst giving the skin a hydration boost at the same time. I really like it! Buy the full size? I'd definitely consider it.
(2) Bee Good Necta Perfecta Beautifying Mask*
I always get excited when I see something new from Bee Good, and this mask is seriously good. It's a 4-in-1 face and body mask that's rich in enzymes and naturally sourced AHAs. It looks like a thick balm that smells delicious, but it's surprisingly easy to massage onto the skin with. You can use it as a weekly scalp treatment, as an intensive moisture treatment for super dry hands and cuticles, as an SOS mask on any dry areas of the body and as a facial complexion booster. I've tried them all out and I particularly enjoyed using it as a facial mask to add moisture and radiance after a busy week. Buy the full size? Definitely would.
(3) Botanicals Spa Detox Body Oil*
There's something about slathering on a beautifully scented body oil after a bath or shower that just feels so luxuriously pampering to me. This one from Botanicals smells amazing (very fresh, a little fruity, a little herbally and wholly uplifting), and the organic formula does an excellent job of moisturising my dry skin. Buy the full size? Yes.
(4) Weleda Pomegranate Regenerating Hand Cream
Long time readers will know of my love for Weleda's Pomegranate range and I love the brand's hand creams too. Marry them both together and you simply have a moisturising, non-greasy, non-sticky hand cream blended with that gorgeous Pomegranate fragrance. What more could I possibly want?! Buy the full size? Hell yes.
(5) Green People Moisturising Shampoo
I was looking forward to trying this out as I'm always on the hunt for a new SLS-free shampoo to use, but sadly this didn't do anything for my hair. I liked the Orange Blossom scent, but the shampoo formula itself left my hair looking greasy and it didn't feel properly clean afterwards. Buy the full size? No, not for me.
Have you tried any new samples out lately?
