Samples: February 2013

Samples Feb

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish – This is a true beauty icon and is a long term favourite of mine. I got this sample which is handy for weekends away. Look out for my full review next week.

Victor & Rolf Spicebomb – This is my favourite fragrance at the moment! I have the full size but was glad I got this sample for on the go!

L’Occitane Shea Hand Cream – This is a beauty classic and is nice and moisturising on the hands with the shea butter.

L’Occitane Ultra Rich Face Cream – I’m new to using L’Occitane skin care but this sample has impressed me. This is a rich cream so I had to use it at night but it did not feel too heavy on the skin. I think this will be one to reach for when my skin dry’s out.

Perricone MD Cold Plasma – This is a bit of a unique product from Perricone. It is supposed to be used before you put your serum on to boost everything else you use. As ageing is not a major concern of mine I just used it in place of a serum and I was surprised how good it was. I’m sure my skin looked a bit fresher and brighter after using. The full price is around £120 so I think I’ll wait till my skin needs a boots before paying out for the full size.

Liz Earle Foot Scrub – I never expected to like this scrub as I always think foot scrubs are a bit of a waste of money as they are never abrasive enough. This scrub is extremely exfoliating with the pumice in it and the peppermint oil is refreshing. I would buy the full size for the summer.

Treat For The Feet – L’Occitane Foot Cream Review

L'Occitane Foot Cream

I’m on my feet a lot and being in trainers at the gym regularly can take its toll so I decided to try the L’Occitane foot cream as I’ve heard the 15% shea butter in the product is good at nourishing dry skin.

The cream includes arnica to sooth and lavender to refresh along with the moisturising Shea butter. The lavender fragrance is quite special as most, if not all foot creams I’ve used before smell of peppermint so it is nice to find a brand that bucks the trend.

What’s in my shower?

Following on from the sneak peek into my bathroom cabinet post I thought I’d show you what is going on in my shower (beauty related anyway!). I do have quite a few products on the go at the moment as I tend to use different products depending on my mood that day.

Counteract Redness with bareMinerals Neutralising Primer

bareMinerals Neutralising Prime Time Review

My skin can often suffer from redness and I’m always interested in trying something that can help combat this and reduce my high coloured skin.  Because there are so many causes of redness it is something that can be hard to treat without using a makeup product such as concealer or foundation to cover over the area.  Being a guy, it is not always appropriate to be using a full coverage concealer and foundation so when I found bareMinerals Neutralising Prime Time primer I was eager to try it.
