The Minis #02

Another round up of the samples that I am trying to use up lately. I have 3 face products and 1 body product but they are all skincare really, bit boring so sorry for that but I do have a tonne of skincare samples. 

I received a sample size which contains 10g of products of this facial moisturiser in a Lust Have It! box a while back. The card that came with the box lists the prices of the products included and the full size version (45g) of this Lush Gorgeous facial moisturiser retails for a whopping $74.95 AU. That means that my tiny sample pot has almost $17 worth of product in it, am I the only one that thinks that is ridiculous? I had originally believed lush consisted of affordable freshly made skincare, whilst most is still affordable, I cannot consider $75 for a moisturiser as affordable. This is a really good moisturiser however, it is meant to be very versatile and suitable for all skin types and adapt to those skin types. However with my very oily skin I still feel like this made my skin a lot oiler than using a moisturiser targeted at keeping my skin matte, would. I will continue using this moisturiser until it is empty as it does feel lovely and does not break me out, but I will be using this at night rather than in the morning.

This is a treatment that aims to preserve sebum quality which does so by preventing the deterioration and thickening of sebum, and so it reduces the appearance and development of imperfections. So far I have enjoyed using this, I cant really tell if it works however and I have not got enough of the sample left to decide whether or not it has improved the condition of my skin. It has not broken me out so I would be interested in purchasing the full size for $24.99 AU to properly test this product out.

Appelles Skin Detox Shower Gel

It looks like the Appelles website has had an overhaul since I received this sample as this product is no longer listed on their website, but I did find pictures of it on their Facebook page. Sadly that means I cannot tell you a lot about this product, it does smell quite nice but I haven't fallen in love with it, which is probably a good thing considering I can't find where to purchase it!

Palmer's Gentle Exfoliating Facial Scrub

I ran out of my last facial scrub and remembered that I had this to use so it has saved me trying to find another one that I like the look of. As a facial scrub this is quite nice, however I am not a huge fan of the smell. This scrub contains cocoa beans but it doesn't really have the chocolate smell I was expecting, just an off putting smell however I am still happy to use up the sample I have but I probably wouldn't repurchase just because of the smell.  I have a 15g sample but the full size 150g retails for $9.99 AU.
