Sample Sized Winners!

Rockin' Samples.

As a beauty blogger I receive (and buy) my fair share of sample sized products. I thought I would write a post dedicated to those pots, sachets and tins of rockin' samples that I have tested.

The most recent product I have tried is a face moisturiser called Olive Oil Face Moisturiser from Vasse Virgin Margaret River. To me this has quiet a thick and creamy consistency and on first impression I thought it would be too heavy for my skin. However I was proven wrong when on contact with my skin it seemed to change character completely and morphed into this lovely light and delicate lotion that my skin lapped up with relish. This cream has essential oils of Rose geranium extract and organic pomegranate extract for hydrating the skin. I absolutely loved the rose scent, anything with a natural rose scent and I am hooked! I am still using this sample as a little goes a long way.

This little pot that I wiped clean had the Anerah Organic Recovery Eye Cream which I used up pretty quickly. I really enjoyed using this incredibly thick eye cream for a change as I usually use lighter lotions. I felt the skin around my eyes was hydrated and firmer. I would recommend this to people with normal to dry skin types because I think the richness of the cream may not agree with sensitive and oily skin.

Top swatch: Zuii Organics Lip Tint. Bottom Swatch: Zuii Organics Liquid Foundation in Rose.

Isn't this the cutest? Zuii Organics gave me this sample a while ago and I am loving it! Zuii Organics use organic ingredients and essential oils in their cosmetics minus synthetic fillers. This little lip tint didn't have a name so I don't know what colour it is but it matches my lips perfectly. It doesn't make my lips a different colour it just gives it a nice gloss and shimmer.

I turn to this sample of Zuii Organics Liquid Foundation in Rose when I'm having a 'no-makeup' makeup day. What I mean is when I feel like wearing makeup but I don't feel like putting any effort into applying it. Zuii Foundation takes very little effort to get it looking perfect. This incredibly light foundation gives a light - medium coverage and a very natural finish. I particularly love how the sample has a doe foot applicator making it so easy to apply. This is the second sample of Zuii foundation I have bought. This will be a continuous purchase for me.

 This handy little sachet of Emma organics facial fluid came with me for four days when I went to visit my parents, and there is still some left in it. This extremely light textured lotion contains no sulphates or parabens and is cruelty free. I loved how such a handy travel sized product can make me feel fresh and hydrated, even when away from home and with limited room in my suitcase.

The Lush Fair Trade Foot Lotion has two qualities I admire. It's fresh minty scent and it's pink! I received this sample at a Lush event I attended a few months ago and I am dreading finishing this pot. My feet feel cool and refreshed after rubbing this in and its the perfect remedy for tired feet at the end of the day.

I cracked open the ABC Arbonne Baby Care open in desperation because we had run out of soap for Miss E. I found this product mildly scented and gentle on her skin. Its was a great relief to find little samples of baby care around the house!

What samples have you been loving?

Have Fun!
