Samples Made Me Buy It

Check out part one here.

REN Clean Skincare Clarimatte T-Zone Control Cleansing Gel

Let this be a testament to the power of value sets / travel kits. I tried this product in 2014 and have repurchased numerous times. I've also recommended it to a few people.

Beautylish sent two samples of this product when I got the Wayne Goss Collection brushes. I had already seen a lot of beauty vloggers rave about Bioderma but I wasn't really buying into the micellar water hype. Well I tried the sample and then...

Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Mist

A comparison of spray toners is coming soon. For now, just know that a 1.8 ml sample convinced me to buy a 50 ml bottle in limited edition packaging.

Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion Skin Exfoliant

I said here that I wasn't sure if I would buy this since it costs $72USD but I was just kidding myself. This is the heavy duty stuff. Wayyyyyy better than the Exfoli-Kate.

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.

Let's not fall into mob mentality - whether for or against. Let's spend our money wisely and less susceptible to marketing ploys.
