Samples I'd Repurchase

 I love beauty samples. I am a typical girl who prefers to try the sample sized product out before buying the full sized version. Samples are great they help avoid us bloggers from spending a massive amount of money on something you aren't fully sure on and allows us to try other brands! 

These 5 products have been the top favourites that I have received in the past in magazines or in my monthly beauty boxes that I think are worthy of a full sized purchase.

Harmony Moisturizing Smoothie Serum
I never thought much of serums I always thought they were for the older mistaken I was. They are becoming a lot more common now because some serums are targeted towards people with blemished, scarring or discoloured skin types etc. This is amazing if you are like myself and receive spots that look worse than they actually are, what I mean is they are inflamed and the inflammation spreads across an area of your skin. This serum reduced the redness on my face and allowed my skin to relax without looking too inflamed and blemished. I also felt like this reduced the amount of oiliness on my skin as my make-up wasn't melting off as fast..brilliant!

Benefit They're Real mascara
What I love about this mascara is how easy it was to achieve the thick, curly lashes without using an eyelash curler. The precision brush is great it separates the lashes perfectly, I almost believed they weren't my eyelashes!  The mascara doesn't smudge or leave any specks, I use this daily so for around 7 hours a day and my mascara are still in place is definitely a good product to have. It is build-able as well so perfect for nights out as well as a daily basis!

Bumble and Bumble Thickening Hairspray
If I am blow drying my hair I apply a few squirts of this onto my damp hair then blow dry away. I ain't keen on the scent of this I really think its off-putting but for such a high-end brand I wasn't letting that get in the way. This definitely thickens your hair up once blow dried and adds volume too! when I have just used this product I notice a difference straight away. I definitely think it's a good product to have if you have thin hair or wanting some a little pricey but this sample bottle has lasted me since last summer so if you can get your hands on this freebie in a magazine get it!

Dr Lipp nipple lip balm
The name is amusing especially when someone says 'what is that?' and you reply with 'nipple balm'..anyways immaturity put aside. I couldn't have been without this product throughout winter, my lips were extremely dry especially in December. But, this little product definitely helped reduce the dryness and moisturized them a lot. I treat like as a deep lip treatment because it is a thick consistency, sticky and heavy on the lips so I'd use this just before bed. When I wake up this product has definitely worked because my lips are satisfied and moisturized! I think if you suffer from chapped lips badly that this will help stop that! I haven't had badly sore lips for a while now but when I do I am definitely purchasing the full size.

Eva Mystic diamond hair oil
I always try my best to take care of my hair and hair oils play an important part of that. As much as I love my Moroccan oil I have to say this is just as good. I'd apply this onto the ends of my damp hair and leave it to dry naturally because oils work best without using heat in my opinion. I notice after using this my hair feels fully conditioned and not dry whatsoever. Also, the best part of this product is noticing texture in my hair, this product definitely adds texture just like the Moroccan oil. A little goes a long way with this product you don't want to apply too much oil to your hair otherwise you will have greasy hair.

What is your favourite sample product?

  2. Replies
    1. Glad you agree! they are really good aren;t they x

  3. I tried the Bumble and Bumble spray and I'd definitely buy that it makes such a difference!

  4. I love Benefit They're Real Mascara, one of my faves

  5. I have that Bumble & Bumble spray sitting around, I really should try it out, but I rarely blowdry my hair.

    I must have about 4 of the They're Real mascara! I'm actually not really keen on it, I keep them as emergency/travel mascaras.

    I think one of my favourite samples is last month's Radial night gel from Birchbox. It's a lovely overnight face moisturiser that costs far too much for me to consider buying. Also a sample perfume from Amoulage I loved that I intended to buy until I saw the £250 price tag D:

    1. Same here you can tell I don't use it as often as I'd of liked to and that is because I don't blowdry much.
      Oh really!? that is a shame. its one of my favourites
      I am yet to try that from my Birchbox but thanks you may have twisted my arm to try it!

  6. The serum sounds great. I still need to try out the Benefit They're Real mascara! x
