Samples: January 2013

I end up with so many sample sizes of products and being a bit of a beauty junkie I always like to try them out so I don’t miss out on a new grooming must have. Here are the samples I’m using this month.

Samples January 2013L’Occitane Precious Cream – I have been using L’Occitane bath and body products for years but this is the 1st face product I’ve ever tried. It is a rich moisturising cream that smells nice and I’ve been impressed with this sample.

Benefit That Gal – Being a guy I was a bit unsure about trying this primer as it has a slight pink tint to it but the pink is very subtle so it will just give the skin a slight lift rather than a pink shimmer.

Liz Earle Skin Repair Moisturiser Dry/ Sensitive – This is a rich cream that is a little too heavy for me to use during the day. I read in the Beauty Bible that it works well as a neck cream so I’ve been using it on my neck at night.

Nude Pro Genius Treatment Oil – A woody scented face oil with omega 3,6,7 & 9 that I use at night before moisturising. It added extra moisture to my skin and smelled lovely.

Acqua di Parma Cologne – This fragrance is a true classic and will leave you smelling citrusy and fresh.

Elemis Rehydrating Ginseng Toner – I’ve been using this at night during this cold spell to add extra hydration.

Have you used any of these products?

    I love Benefit’s that gal – gives cheeks a really nice shine. I really need to buy that Ginseng Elemis toner – I love Elemis!

      The toner is so soothing and cooling on the skin, I’m glad I’ve had this to use during this cold spell. What Elemis products do you like?

    Even though its a men’s fragrance I adore Acqua di Parma cologne, your so right a true classic fragrance, and so chic!

      I’m a bit of an Elemis boy! Lol I’ve been really impressed with the toner. I know toning is something that a lot of people skip but this once is worth the effort 🙂 x

    I have the AdP fragrance myself, a real classic for guys.. especially when combined with a suit as I often feel this needs.
    Currently using up a jar of the L’Occitane precious cream myself, it’s a wonderful thick moisturizer and I do notice the firming actions through deep hydration.

      I was extremely impressed with the L’Occitane cream, the sample was too small to notice any firming in the time I used it but I was impressed with the moisture, texture and smell. I would buy the full size in the future.
