If you read in one of my previous blog posts you would know that I had an enormous amount of samples I needed to get through, and so the sample finishing escapade begins. I didn't succeed in finishing a lot of samples in the last two weeks but it's a start!
I'm hoping to finish all (well most) of my samples by the end of month so I can start using some new goodies that I've sneakily purchased over the last couple of months. Maybe I should post a haul as well? Let me know if you would like to see a haul!
Moving onto the empties - these are the products I've used up since my last empties post!
GKMBJ Soothing and Nourishing Shampoo 30g and GKMBL Soothing Honey Moisturising Conditioner 30g
I found both the shampoo and conditioner to be quite different from other shampoo brands I've tried. This duo made my hair feel heavy and look slightly lifeless. Now I don't know if I received a crap sample or not but I didn't really like it. Maybe it's due to all the moisturising ingredients that are in the conditioner but either way definitely not a winner in my books. The smell however reminded me of the shampoos and conditions hairdressers usually use. Would I repurchase? Probably not.
Klorane Oat Milk Shampoo 25mL
Unlike the GKMBJ shampoo the Klorane shampoo made my hair feel extra clean. I cannot really comment on anything else though because I only had the chance to use it once! I left this tiny sample in the shower and my sister ended up finishing the bottle! Would I repurchase? Maybe, if I found it on sale. I would like to see how it would affect my hair in the long run.
Lush Ro's Argan Body Conditioner 45g
I had a very up and down relationship with this product. At first I absolutely hated it - the smell, the consistency everything was a turn off - but of course I was using it wrong. The first time I tried this in the shower I absolutely fell in love! It made my skin feel extremely moisturised, silky smooth and soft. I felt as though I didn't need to moisturise for a whole week after using it! The smell was a little unpleasant but not as terrible as when I was using it out of the shower. Would I repurchase? Definitely! The only thing that sucks is the price! $29.95!
Soap and Glory Clean On Me Shower Gel 75ml
If you read my 'Pampering Delights' post then you need no explanation for this product. This is without a doubt one of my favourite shower gels. Oh and for all of my Australian readers who don't know where to pick up S&G products - they're available at Kit Cosmetics! Would I repurchase? Yes, a thousand times yes.
Batiste Blush Dry Shampoo 30g
Another product that needs no explanation. I think every person knows how well Batiste Dry Shampoo works. This is a staple in my life. Would I repurchase? Over and over and over again.
Rexona Clear Aqua Anti-Persperant Deodorant 50ml
I'm not an expert deodorant guru but this one worked quite for me plus it had a very lovely scent. I used to hate roll on deodorants but I think this one has made me convert. I find that it works more efficiently than spray on deodorant and more convenient for travelling. Would I repurchase? Yes!
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat 14ml
Hands down the best top coat in the entire universe. Dries impeccably fast, makes your nail polish look beautifully glossy and makes it extremely difficult to chip your nails. Would I repurchase? I already have a new bottle waiting for me!
Maybelline Falsies Volum' Express Mascara
I was once obsessed with this mascara. There was not a day that went by when I didn't use it. However, after finishing this tube and trying out Benefit's They're Real Mascara I don't think I will be going back for a while (mainly because I have a tonne of unopened mascara to test out!). This is a great mascara for those looking to add volume and length to their lashes. Would I repurchase? Maybe in the future when I've used up all my other mascaras.
Ardell Lash Grip Eyelash Adhesive 7g
One of the best eyelash glues on the market. Fast drying, dries either black or clear and simple to use. Would I repurchase? Always.
OrganicSpa Skincare Face Exfoliant 7g
Not the best exfoliant I've used. I felt as though this didn't really exfoliant my skin very well as there wasn't a lot of grit in the formula. The smell was also quite off-putting. Would I repurchase? Probably not.
Garnier Youth Radiance Day Cream 50ml
Another mixed feeling product was this day cream. At first I didn't like the fact this day cream at all. I was only using it on a daily basis to finish it up and move onto another cream. However, as time went on I gradually started to like the cream more and more. My skin started to feel smoother and looked brighter/glowy. It also smelt quite nice as well. The only downside to this cream was that it gave me a stinging sensation when I used it around my my nose. I have no idea why, as it has never occurred when I use other creams but the feeling does go away after a couple of seconds. Would I repurchase? Yes!
Avene Clearance Anti-Shine Regulating Emulsion - Lotion 5ml
I'm not 100% sure whether the anti-shine component of this lotion worked as the sample was too tiny to make any concrete decisions. But it did feel very moisturising on the skin. Would I repurchase? Yes, just to see whether or not it lives up to their anti-shine claims.
Biore Gentle Make-up Removing Wipes - 10 Wipes
Although they were a tad on the dry side, these wipes worked quite well. I absolutely hate make-up removing wipes that are dry - how the hell are you supposed to remove your make-up with a dry cloth?! Anyways, these were very gentle but as a consequence they didn't remove all my make-up. I still had some mascara on my lashes even though I used up every inch of the cloth. Would I repurchase? Probably not.
Face Of Australia Purifying Cleansing Wipes - 25 Wipes
First off can I say I bought these wipes when they were on special for about $2 a packet. I bought about 5 packs even though I didn't know how well they would work - but after finishing the first packet up I can safely say that I'm so glad I bought so many. These wipes worked surprisingly well. They removed all my make-up and made my skin feel really refreshed. Would I repurchase? Yes!
