Another week of project use up samples! Only one week left for this challenge, then I’ll slowly get through them. This week my skin broke out a little bit. I’m not sure if its because of all the products I’ve been using on my face, a little bit of stress, I’ve been a little bad with my diet, or it’s almost that time of the month. Perhaps it’s a little bit of everything.
Samples used: 23
Pond’s Wet Cleansing Towellettes- I like these because of the textured cloth, it makes it easy to take off make up…even mascara. Plus they don’t dry out my skin and leaves my face soft afterwards.
Dr Brandt Plump Up the Volume- I don’t really have wrinkles but used this anyway. I was using it at night. It was a little tingly, then my skin turned pink for a few minutes. I woke up and I looked well rested
OLE Henriksen truth Serum collagen booster, vitamin C- I really liked this vitamin C serum. The past vitamin C serums Ive used int he past leave my skin feeling tight afterwards and this one didn’t. It absorbed nicely and left my skin with a healthy glow.
Murad Essential C eye serum- Like that it has SPF in it, absorbs nicely, make up goes on easy, leaves skin soft & smooth.
L’oreal Color Vibrancy shampoo, conditioner, & antioxidant- I recently put a little dye in my hair for highlights so technically some of my hair is color treated lol After each product my hair felt so soft and smooth , especially after the antioxidant treatment. I couldnt stop toughing my hair because of how nice it felt.
Boppy Bloom stretch mark cream- left skin soft, nice scent
Purelygreat lavendar natural deodorant- Calming scent, I like that it is vegan friendly, 100% natural. It kept me smelling great all day and dry. Which surprised me. It did leave white marks though.
Shiseido Ultimune power infusing concentrate- This is one of those product you need more than a sample to see how it works for you. It did smell nice , absorb quickly, & leave skin soft.
Eu2Be nurture + nourish lotion- Not a fan of the smell at all though it does go away once you rub it on. Left skin soft
S.W Basics of Brooklyn Exfoliant- I like the concept of it being organic and made of simple ingredients but because it is made with flour it smelled like I was putting dough on my face. It was really gentle on skin, I didn’t care for this one but would be up to try their other products . Their Hibiscus mask looks nice
Centrum Vitamints- If you’re like me and hate swallowing pills this is a great way to get in your vitamins. Vitamins + mint = 2 in one, fresh breath & you get in vitamins You can chew them with no nasty taste
Sundown Naturals Co Q-10 – I liked the mango flavor, easy to take
L’oreal Revitalift miracle blur- I do like these blur product but this one was too thick for me. Skin looked nice and smooth after applying.
Shea Moisture Fruit Fusion Coconut Water shampoo & creme rinse- gentle, smelled nice, left my hair clean and soft. Love that this company makes products good for you by using natural ingredients.
Shea Moisture baby lotion- Why is this for babies? I would use it lol Left skin soft and hydrated. The scent was very calming ( which I guess is good for babies) 🙂
Fresh Soy face cleanser- very gentle on skin, left skin soft & clean. If you love cucumbers you will enjoy the scent. Smells just like a cucumber & reminded me of Summer.
Philosophy renewed hope in a jar- hard to really tell how well it worked because there wasn’t much to work with. Absorbed quickly,left skin hydrated.
Wella Velvet amplifier– Easy to use, didn’t leave a residue on hair. Helped with frizz
Garnier BB Cream- I like the scent to this but the formula doesn’t really absorb nicely into my skin. Also I think this color is off for me but this is the lightest I think they have. I like that it has salicylic acid to help with any blemishes you might have.
