Sample Sunday #3

Hi Friends!

Happy {Sample} Sunday! This has been a great week of samples so I am so excited to share with you my thoughts! If you didn’t catch my introduction to this project, then please go back and read it! I am working to use up all of my samples and get a good understanding of different items that work and don’t work for me.

So here is what I thought of last week’s samples:

1. Algenist – Genius Liquid Collagen – This product was just okay. I don’t really think this was enough of a sample to really understand if it works or not. It did feel nice and luxurious on the face but its not something I am interested in purchasing the full size for now. Especially because the full size is $115. Eek.

2. Dr. Roebuck’s – Face Moisturizer – Again, I wasn’t blown away with this moisturizer. It did glide on the skin fairly nicely, it wasn’t too thin of a formula but not too thick as well so I did enjoy it in the AM and the PM. It didn’t have a scent so I think it would be great for sensitive skin but overall, it wasn’t amazing so I won’t be purchasing.

3. Dolce & Gabbana – Light Blue – I have enjoyed this perfume this week. It was quite difficult to distribute since it wasn’t a normal sample spray container but once it was rubbed on my skin, I was in love. The scent is very mature and sexy, I couldn’t stop lifting my wrist to my nose to smell it again throughout the day. This is a perfume that I am interested in but I won’t be making an immediate purchase just because of the price.

4. Kat Von D – Lock It Makeup Setting Spray – This is another sample that I really enjoyed this week! I definitely noticed a difference in the longevity of my makeup, and it felt really hydrating and comfortable on the skin. I have added this to my loves list so it will probably be something that I pick up in the April VIB sale at Sephora.

5. Bite Beauty – Agave Lip Mask – This was a sample that I was super excited to use because I have heard so many people rave about the Agave Lip Mask. I have to say that I really enjoyed it as well! Initially, I felt that the lip mask was super sticky and uncomfortable but the longer it stay on my lips, the more comfortable it became. I was impressed with how long it stayed on my lips while I slept. I usually drink a lot of water right before I go to bed and it lasted through all of them and felt really nice. I am obsessed with using lip balm so I didn’t noticed that this hydrated or smoothed out my lips particularly but I did enjoy it for a night lip mask. I would purchase this but I don’t think I will immediately. Still very nice if you are looking for something like this.

Next week I will trying these samples:
