Samples #3

Here are the samples I've been using this week and my thoughts on them (I've not quite finished the Freyaluna soap).

Biotherm Aquasource 24 hour moisturiser sachet - loved this light gel textured moisturiser with a fresh ocean scent.  One I'd definitely like to try full size.

Dior The New Nude Foundation - Light Beige 1.5ml sachet - loved this and the colour was just about right.  I'd maybe purchase full size.

Suti Fabulous Foot Balm mini pot - loved this and have since bought full size.  You can read my review here.

Sarah Chapman Overnight Facial 2ml tube - this smells amazing! With frangipani, jasmine, rose and tuberose.  I loved this light serum/oil.  Want to look into trying more Sarah Chapman products.

Dr Bronner's 18 in 1 Peppermint Pure Castile Soap - loved this little sachet of loveliness.  Used it in the shower but you can also use it to clean your teeth(?), as  a face wash, hand wash. The list is endless.  Would definitely re-purchase this.

Crabtree & Evelyn Citron, Honey & Coriander Body Lotion 27ml - a lovely light scented, easily absorbed lotion.  Would maybe purchase.

John Masters Organics Honey & Hibiscus Reconstructuring Shampoo and Hair Reconstructor - both 10ml.  Adore these products.  I definitely want to purchase the Hair Reconstructor at some point.  It leave my hair soft, healthy and static free.

Freyaluna Rose & Geranium mini soap.  I  got this in my Freyaluna Selection Box.  A gorgeous soap and one I'd purchase full size.

Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask sachet - in a word gorgeous! Left my skin radiant and healthy.  Would love to buy this but at £44 for 30ml I think it will be one which is always on my wishlist!

Korres Quercetin & Oak Anti-Ageing & Anti-Wrinkle Light Texture Cream 1.5ml.  Loved this, a light cream which sinks easily into the skin.  One I'd definitely like to try again.

L'Oreal True Match Foundation - Golden Beige - 1ml - a nice product, blended well but not quite my colour. I'd probably try it in a different shade.

REN Mayblossom Balancing Cleansing Gel 5ml tube - a nice cleanser, quite liked the scent but probably wouldn't buy it again as didn't love it.

Dr Bragi Bio-Marine Exfoliant - this was way too harsh on my skin, didn't end up finishing it as just didn't like it.

Naked Revitalising Hair Treatment 20ml sachet - loved this, made my hair look great.  Will definitely pick this up again.
