Low Buy 2019 is a bust but Sampled Out is going strong.

This is a travel essential. Thankfully they've developed an ampoules version which is even easier to travel with.

Hempz 'White Peach Rose & Peony' 66ml

I always get one of these when I travel to the US. Great for your handbag; especially if you wash your hands a lot. This scent is a sweet floral that's not over-powering. Not headache inducing at all.

Clinique Moisture Surge Face Spray 30 ml

Wow this little thing is a full fluid ounce! Another travel essential...but don't wait for that, put it in your handbag every day. In these hot last days we need every bit of refreshment we can get. The mist of this dispenser is nice; not the finest but not shooting you in the face either. I would definitely buy the full size. And yes, that bottle will be reused. ♻

Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask 7.5ml

I've told you all about this here. One update: make sure you use these "natural" products frequently so product doesn't go to waste. Thankfully Tata Harper is available in Barbados at Pure Source so if I'm feeling spendy and willing to part with $66USD, there's that.


This sadly went off before I got a chance to finish it ๐Ÿ˜ž I'm still undecided about purchasing the full size. Maybe if it could be kept in the fridge ๐Ÿ’ Anyway, it was good while it lasted. Us oily skin girls need clay masks.

Have you been using your samples? Discovered anything great lately? Let us know in the comments.

Sunday Riley Good Genes versus Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum

If you're an avid YouTube watcher you've probably heard about these products. Both brands blew up on the skincare seen in short order as expensive, but effective. If you're like me you quickly began to wonder: which is better? Short answer: it depends.


Long answer...

I've mentioned Good Genes a few times before on the blog. This 'all-in-one lactic acid treatment' is raved about by the likes of Stephanie Nicole and Caroline Hirons.

From the box: "Deeply exfoliates the dull surface of the skin for clarity, radiance, and younger-looking skin. Visibly brightens the appearance of age spots and discolorations. Instantly plumps the look of fine lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes*

*Clinically tested and proven to significantly improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes. Results obtained via profilometry analysis.

Most Expensive Skincare

I love looking through the blog and seeing if my thoughts have changed. In this case, I'm updating this post but limiting it to skincare. The other difference is, I've not formulated my final position on every product so I can't call it a favourites post. Here are some of the most expensive skincare items I've tried to date.

Vintner's Daughter Active Botanical Serum - $185USD

Stephanie Nicole raved about this when it released and I was hooked. I haven't reviewed it as yet because I'm still not sure if it's worth the price. That said, I think it's a product I would repurchase because I've grown to love the scent and I can use it when my skin is extremely sensitive. I've seen numerous reviews - posted by the brand for what they're worth - saying that this has replaced numerous steps in skincare routines. If you think of it like that, it's worth it. This is labelled as a serum but it's a facial oil.
