Sampled Out

For more information on what this series is about please read this post. Also, please forgive the frequency of these kind of posts for the rest of the year. I literally have a bag of trash that I have to tell you about πŸ˜†

Muji Light Toning Water 50 ml
This was more of a travel size but yuh know those fit the criteria 😏 I'm a big fan of this formula; check out the review here. I'll purchase the 200 ml next time I see it.
Herbivore Rose Hibiscus Hydrating Face Mist 30 ml
That I love chilled hydrating toners is so secret. So much so it feels like I'm on a mission to try every one. Herbivore's esthetic is attention grabbing so their releases are always on my radar. Especially when they have value sets. This products is a winner and well worth the $32USD for the full size (4 oz / 118 ml). It's also great that it comes in a glass bottle with a nice mist dispenser, so you can repurpose the packaging.

Origins Modern Friction 50 ml
Another value set find. This one was just ok…

Wish List Update

We're going back to June 2015. For the first time I talked about organizers.

Zahra Beauty Spinning Lipstick Tower

Copped that. Zahra Beauty is now called Rovanza btw. If you have a lot of lipsticks this won't be enough for you but it's a great way to store and display your favourites.

Zahra Beauty Beauty Compact Condominium

I didn't get this one because I got the next thing.

The Original Beauty Box Deluxe Beauty Box

Wait. I actually bought the The Original Beauty Box and the Pro version. I don't see the Pro version on their site anymore. The Original Beauty Box makes these storage units very well although I must say The Original version is done better.

Dior Diorskin Nude Tan Healthy Glow Enhancing Powder Tye Dye Edition 'Coral Sunset'
Copped that. Haven't used it 😦

Clinique Cheek Pop Blushes
I need to do a Stash Status on these but I've already told y'all how in love I am with 'Cola Pop'.
I didn't get the shoes mentioned in June 2015 eit…

Sampled Out

This is another series previously featured on my Instagram but I feel it deserves more space. Much like the Project Pan community, there's a substantial group of people on YouTube actively trying to use up their samples. Samples and trial sizes can really accumulate if you don't mindfully use them. In this format I'd have more space to tell you if it's something I would purchase, the cost of the full size etc. etc.

Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream 0.25 fl oz US

I was happy to have this sample to travel with. Many YouTubers rave about this body cream and after going through the 2.5 oz tub I get it. It's very moisturising and the scent lasts on the skin. A full 8.1 oz retails for $45USD. That's steep to me...especially since I have so many Eden's Choice lotions to get through. Maybe I'll purchase that at a later date.

La Mer The Moisturizing Soft Cream 0.05 oz

Right off yuh know these foil packets don't contain much product. I got two uses out of …

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Cleansing Gel

Samples Made Me Buy It

Fourth time around πŸ˜€ This toss I gotta big up travel sizes as well. Yuh ain't gine get to try a product for free in every situation but at least yuh could see if it suit yuh before shelling out the big bucks. Also, they're good for...wait for it...travelling with πŸ˜†Check out my 2017 favourites here.

May Coop Raw Sauce Hydrating + Nourishing Essence
Of all the essences in my current rotation this one has the "thickest" texture. That's a lil deceptive cause it's not's just that the others are clearly more fluid. If you are struggling with dehydrated skin try adding an essence to your routine.

Shiseido Perfect Cleansing Oil

Love that pump action! Cleansing oils and balms are great for a "first cleanse". I'm sure you can find one cheaper than $33USD for 6 oz but I was impressed with how well this removes very pigmented mascara and eyelash glue. Thanks again to Sharalee for passing on that travel size 😘

Youth To The People Age Preventio…

Uh Bariffle Ah Empties

It's not only candles getting used up around here πŸ˜›

I used to do #TrashThursday on IG but maybe that's not the right medium. Here I'll be able to link to previous reviews and you can tell me if you want to know more about a product.

The only thing new to me was the Murad Essential-C Cleanser. I'm going to buy another of these because I'm not sure what I think of it. The Clarimatte one is a standard repurchase.

My body lotion stash is ridiculous thanks to Eden's Choice. Occasionally I do still pick up a mini for my purse. I'm a huge fan of their formula of course; but I must admit that Hempz ones are amazing as well. The Tree Hut 'Coconut Lime' scent did not agree with me at all.

Viktor following in Logan's footsteps
Ok this is months of hand soap empties here. Just like with the candles, 'Peach Bellini', 'Twisted Peppermint', 'Black Cherry Merlot', 'Warm Vanilla Sugar', 'French Lavender' and 'Eucalyptu…
