Samples #7

It's ages since I've done a samples post - you can see my last one here.

Erno Laszlo Hollywood Collection - Instant Eye Repair, Intensive Porcelain Veil, Velvet Night Cream, Refresh Moisture Infusion, Morning Beauty Rescue - I love these especially the eye cream and night cream.  Only one not so keen on is Morning Beauty Rescue as it's a bit sparkly.

Caudalie Vinosource Moisturising Mattifying Fluid - nice product but tiny sample - hard to tell if this suited my skin as I only got one use.

Philosophy Hope in a Jar, Eye Hope and Purity 3-in-1 Cleanser - I liked using the eye cream and the cleanser.  I didn't like the scent of the moisturiser.

Manuka Doctor Rejuvenating Face Mask - this was lovely smelt amazing and felt fab on the skin.  Would perhaps buy full size.

Avon Advanced Techniques Shampoo and Leave in Conditioner - these seemed quite good but I didn't like the scent of them so wouldn't buy.

Weleda Skin Food and Pomegranate Body Lotion - loved both of these especially the Pomegranate Body Lotion which I'll definitely buy at some point.  Loved the fruity scent and how it felt on my skin.

Vav Hand Cream - tiny sachet seemed a nice enough cream but hard to tell as it's such a small sachet.

I also used Liz Earle Superskin Concentrate sample vial - nice enough product but there are other face oils I prefer.

The Oh Lola! EDP sample came from my Perfume Samples challenge.  Love its light, fruity & floral scent - I'd definitely buy this perfume.

As you can see I'm still in sample overload!

  1. You sure have a lot of samples Sandra :D x

    1. ;) They keep multiplying rather than going down! x

  2. Wow! That is sample heaven lol. I love it when I get a sample in a magazine and I haven't been expecting it to be in there - the little things in life hey! ;) I've tried a number of the brands you have listed but not the particular products x

    1. ;) me too love finding samples in magazines. x

  3. I'll start a little 'sandra box' for any more I get ;-)

  4. Ooh definitely sample heaven and sample envy going on from me - Weleda Skin Food and Pomegranate Body Lotion is on my wishlist xx

  5. that is a lot of samples! i have used the liz earle superskin concentrate and agree that there are other oils that are better xxxx

    1. There is just so much to choose from! x

    2. I'm not the biggest lover of SuperSkin Concentrate either. I have the roller ball version and have started using it on my cuticles before bed.

  6. Hi Sandra!
    I don't know any of the samples myself; therefore thank you for sharing and describing them.
