Trilogy Cream Cleanser I've really enjoyed using this cleanser as an evening, finding it to feel lovely on the skin and do a good job at removing my make-up; I've been massaging it into my skin with my fingers, before removing with a hot flannel or muslin cloth. Aside from smelling beautiful, it's left my skin feeling clean and soft. I also love the packaging of the full-sized 200ml bottle, though at £22.50 it's slightly more than I can afford to spend on skincare at the moment. I do feel that Trilogy products are worth the investment and I'd definitely consider this in the future.
REN Evercalm Gentle Cleansing Milk I think this was another magazine sample, which again is a lovely cleanser and has been gorgeous to use of an evening to dissolve my make-up and leave my skin feeling clean and soft but not dry or tight. I always feel slightly underwhelmed by REN products, I never feel like they live up to the hype for me, but I have to say this is one of my favourite REN products I've tried to date. At £16 for 150ml, this is again a little beyond my budget currently but one I'd consider in the future as a gentle option for removing make-up.
Liaison de Parfum Stay With Me Eau de Parfum A Birchbox sample, I've really enjoyed using this; as quite a strong scent, it's lasted well and I've got plenty of use from it. It's a beautiful scent and exactly the sort of thing I like to wear, with notes of orange blossom, lily, vanilla and amber, but at £105 for the full-sized 100ml bottle there probably isn't
Supergoop! Daily Correct CC Cream I got two tiny sample tubes of this in the shade 'Light-Medium' in my August Birchbox; it actually gave a really good coverage, much more than I was expecting, and is a product I'd be happy to wear on its own on particularly good skin days. Popping my usual foundation on over it worked well for me on days where I needed a little more coverage. The shade was a little too dark for me, which surprised me until I realised there is actually a lighter shade, 'Fair-Light', which I'd go for were I to buy the full-size. I found this lasted pretty well when finished with powder, and left my skin looking clear, smooth and natural. £32 for 47ml puts this a little beyond my budget at the moment but it is a product I'd consider buying in the future.
Cattier Paris Masque Argile The third Birchbox sample in this post, I actually received two sachets of this mask and have got three usages out of the first, which is pretty good going. The pink clay mask is supposed to illuminate the complexion and soothe the skin, and whilst my skin definitely feels calm and smooth after use, I wouldn't say it does much in the way of brightening. I'll happily use the other sachet as it's lovely to apply and feels nice on the skin, but I don't see myself buying the full-sized 100ml tube at £4.25.
So another six samples bite the dust - have you tried any of these products? How do you make sure your beauty samples get used up?
