Samples #10

These are the samples I chose for #10 (I seem to have chucked a couple of them out with my empties - see second pic) but here are my thoughts on them -

Two bath bombs from Bee Fruitful in Honey, Peppermint & Rosemary* and Honey & Lemon* - these were complimentary with my order and were gorgeous. I'll definitely buy some soon.

sk:n Age-Delaying Cream 5ml - This was a nice enough cream but I didn't love it so wouldn't buy it.

Blend Collective Hydrating Hand & Body Lotion 5ml - gorgeous! Scented with Sicilian Lemon, May Chang, Myrtle and Lime.  A small sample but smelt nice and seemed quite moisturising.  Will maybe pick up full size.

Spa Fabulous Organic Heavenly Glow Exfoliator - a small sachet so unsure if it suited my skin.  It smelt gorgeous with a lemongrass scent.

Apivita Natural Serum - this seemed a nice serum. Definitely interested in trying out more from Apivita.

Clarins BB Cream 1.5ml - I'm unsure who exactly this shade suited! Was way too dark/orange for me!

Australian Bush Flower Essences Face Wash Serum 3ml - this was lovely and from a brand I'd not heard of before. Quite a small sample though.

Apivita Pink Clay Mask - simply love the Apivita masks - would definitely buy this one again.  I get two uses out of a sachet.

Melvita Ultra Nourishing Cream - this was too rich for my skin so wouldn't buy but generally love the brand.

NUXE 24hr Soothing & Rehydrating Fresh Mask 4ml - simply loved this mask and would consider purchasing.  It left my skin super soft.

NUXE Anti-Fatigue Moisturising Eye Cream 2ml - this was lovely to use and cooling around the eye area.

NUXE 24hr Moisturising Body Lotion 7ml - simply loved this.  Will definitely pick it up full size - smelt gorgeous and was super moisturising.

Nourish Hand Lotion - loved this. It nourished the hands and smelt nice. Definitely one I'm adding to my hand cream wishlist.

Formula Treatment Oil - this seemed ok but there are other oils I prefer.

Here's what I have chosen for week #11 -

Yes! Nurse Hand Formula 3ml 
Madara Sun Flower Golden Beige Tinting Fluid 1.5ml
Madara Moon Flower Rose Beige Tinting Fluid 1.5ml
Caudalie Divine Legs Tinted Body Lotion 5ml
