B. Active Day Cream SPF 15 This came as part of a Gift-With-Purchase set and I really enjoyed using it; it didn't have any particular scent but did a lovely job of hydrating my skin, leaving it soft and moisturised. The fact it contains SPF is a definite bonus, too, as I always forget to apply mine... I don't think I'd repurchase this, though, purely because I don't think it was quite right for my skin type. I really struggle to find moisturisers which suit my super-oily skin! The full-size 50ml is £5.97.
B. Radiant Rejuvenating Serum After my previous experiences with B., I expected good things from this serum but I found it left me feeling a little.. Blah. It just didn't seem to do anything for my skin, and the inclusion of silicones put me off further. This one isn't for me I'm afraid! Full price is £6.97 for 30ml.
Benefit The Porefessional This isn't my first little sample of The Porefessional and I have in fact done a more in-depth review in the past, but it's a sample and I've finished it so I'll damn well include it! The more I use this, the more I become convinced it just isn't for me. I want to love it but I just can't! It feels greasy on my skin, does very little to keep my face looking matte, and seems to encourage my make-up to slide off even more quickly than it does with no primer at all - overall, this really isn't a winner for me which is a shame as I know so many people swear by it. I have another sample, which I'll use, but I wouldn't purchase the full-size, which is £24.50 for 22ml.
Nivea Daily Essentials Sensitive Day Cream Yes, another day cream sample. I really liked this one; despite being aimed at perhaps more dry skin, I found it sank into my skin quickly and left it mattified and soft. It contains SPF 15, and I found that makeup applied really nicely over it, too. I'd consider giving the full-sized version of this a go! This is a bargain at £2.99 for 50ml.
Nip + Fab Coconut Latte Dry Skin Fix Body Butter Well this was just a massive disappointment! The scent was nothing like what I hoped, it didn't really smell of coconuts to me at all. On top of that, contrary to its "dry skin fix" claims, this dried my skin out horribly; I put that down to the Paraffinum Liquidum it contains, and I won't be buying the full size(£8.49 for 200ml)! This has really put me off Nip + Fab actually, I've not tried any of their other products and this has left me not really wanting to.
Have you tried any of these products? Ever tried a product with big claims been left disappointed?
