Samples #9

You can see my last samples update here.  Here's my thoughts on what I used in #9:

I seem to have binned a few samples with my last lot of empties - oops!

Beauty Lab Micropolish Dermabrasion 1.5ml - this was a bit too harsh for my skin.  From a brand I've not heard of before.

Murad Rejuvenating Lift for Neck and Decollete 3.7ml - loved this! 

Elemis Pro-Intense Lift Effect 2ml - this seemed nice but quite a small sample.

Belnatur Oxy-Nutrigen Regenerating Cream - the whole range of these were nice. It was from a brand I've not heard of before.  They came from a Latest in Beauty Little Beauty Box.

Eve Lom Morning Time Cleanser 5ml - not a huge Eve Lom fan - this was ok but nothing special.

Dermalogica Multivitamin Power Firm 5ml - loved this and would consider buying full size.  Liked how you can use it around the eyes and the lips.

Caudalie Deep Cleansing Exfoliator 3ml - this was lovely with just enough scrub. Don't think there is a Caudalie product I haven't enjoyed using.

Belnatur hydro-nourishing Comfort Cream - nice to use.

Sarah Chapman Dynamic Defence 2ml - I like every Sarah Chapman product I try! Must treat myself soon to a QVC set.

Laboratories Luzern Pure Cleansing Gelee 2ml - I didn't like this, found it irritated my eyes.

Belnatur Balance Cream - as above nice to use.

Faith in Nature Pomegranate & Rooibos Shampoo & Conditioner (both 7ml) - these were lovely.  My first try of this brand.  Definitely will look into it more.

Eve Lom Rescue Mask 15ml - I know this is a best-seller but I just didn't like it.  I hated the scent and felt it made my skin feel tight and dry.

Yonka Vital Defence Intense Hydration Cream 6ml - loved this. Really nice to use and I'd consider purchasing it in the future.

Here's what I've chosen for #10:

Two bath bombs from Bee Fruitful in Honey, Peppermint & Rosemary* and Honey & Lemon*
sk:n Age-Delaying Cream 5ml
Blend Collective Hydrating Hand & Body Lotion 5ml
Spa Fabulous Organic Heavenly Glow Exfoliator
Apivita Natural Serum
Clarins BB Cream 1.5ml 
Australian Bush Flower Essences Face Wash Serum 3ml
Apivita Pink Clay Mask
Melvita Ultra Nourishing Cream 
NUXE 24hr Soothing & Rehydrating Fresh Mask 4ml
NUXE Anti-Fatigue Moisturising Eye Cream 2ml
NUXE 24hr Moisturising Body Lotion 7ml
Nourish Hand Lotion
Formula Treatment Oil

Have you used any of these products?

*PR samples


  1. I had exactly the same experience with the Eve Lom mask, I've two sample tubes to use up so I tend to only leave it on for five minutes max.

  2. I love your sample posts, think we have the most samples Sandra! I need to blog about some again soon, I got lots from m&s beauty last night! The girl even gave me a 15ml serum! I think that was a free gift!! Xxx


    1. Thanks Jen - I know ;) Mine never seem to go down! I love M&S beauty x

  3. Those bath bombs sound delightful and I should so do a post like this to use up all my sachets and trial sizes xx

    1. I've used one so far and they are lovely. Definitely a good way to start using up samples & I've found some products I really like x

  4. I agree with your thoughts on the Eve Lom mask, does nothing at all to benefit my skin.

  5. Faith in Nature were one of the first natural brands that I tried, they're pretty good! :) x

    1. :) Always seen them about but never really picked them up! x

  6. Great to hear that the Faith In Nature Shampoo & Conditioner are good, have been wanting to try something from them for a while so shall be adding those to my list :) x
