Skin Care Samples

If you hadn’t noticed by now, I am a skin care fiend! So one of the perks of buying a lot of skin care, you get a lot of samples! I love samples because you can see whether your skin reacts to certain products or not. Some of these products did break me out, and others I fell in love with and bought the full size of! I hope you enjoy this post, I know it’s a bit different!

Ole Henriksen – Featherweight Moisturiser

I thought I’d start off on a good note! I love love LOVE this moisturiser, as my skin is combination, I don’t get on well with heavy moisturisers as they make me more oily. However, this product is so light on my skin, yet it is still moisturising at the same time! It hasn’t reacted badly with my skin at all and I’m obsessed with it! I will definitely be buying the full size!

Benefit – Total Moisture Facial Cream

I have a love hate relationship with this moisturiser! It is meant for normal to dry skin types, but when I used it, it didn’t make me look really oily at all. I used this for about a month and loved it, but then I realised that it was breaking me out. That’s quite disappointing because it was intensely moisturising and it didn’t make me look oily at all.

Kiehl’s – Ultra Facial Cream

Even though this is a very heavy moisturiser, this didn’t make me oily! I used it in the evenings and it was really moisturising. I even bought the full size, I loved it that much! But, soon I realised that it was breaking me out, so I have had to stop using it 😦

Kiehl’s – Ultra Light Daily UV Defense

I really don’t like this suncream. I used it on my face, because that’s what I was advised to do, and it really broke me out and it felt really drying and tacky on my skin. That was just my experience, it may be different for you, but I really didn’t like this product 😦

Kiehl’s – Actively Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream

I like this bb cream, I don’t think it is anything particularly special. It has good coverage for a bb cream and it doesn’t make my skin break out! I plan to purchase the full size, but I love my bb cream at the moment and don’t see a reason to buy another one. Maybe in the future I will by it – I really hope so!

Caudalie – Anti-Wrinkle Eye and Lip Cream

I thought that this was quite a clever product, it’s not that often that you find a lip and eye cream in one! This really did nothing for my lips or eyes to be honest, so I won’t be purchasing the full size 😦 If this worked for you please let me know, I really want to love it!

Kiehl’s – Midnight Recovery Concentrate

I replaced the ultra facial cream with this, and I fell in love! People with oily skin are often put off by serums because they think it will make their skin even more oily – but it doesn’t! It makes my skin look really healthy and glowy. I bought the full size and I’m obsessed with it. I highly recommend this, I use it every night!
