Project Sample Use Up 029

Sun Sense Daily Face SPF 50 Invisible Tint Finish // Surpsiringly the tint of this wasn't too dark for my pale skin and I was actually able to use it which isn't usually the case for a lot of tinted products. I also like that it is factor 50 but is something I'd only really use in the summer.

Noble Isle Willow Song Shower Gel // I've had a couple of these mini bottles of shower gel before from Noble Isle and I always enjoy using them. If I remember correctly, it's quite an expensive shower gel and one I probably wont ever buy but all the different scents are lovely.

Benefit They're Real! Mascara // I've been through a couple of these mini tubes of this mascara from various beauty boxes and as magazine freebies. I do really like the formula and the brush, it adds volume and length without clumping. I would buy the full size although it does seem to dry out quite quickly.

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser x3  // I used three tubes of this cleanser one after the other which I think nearly equals the full size. This is one of my favourite all time cleansers and one I'd recommend everyone to try at least once. I will always have a bottle or tube of this in my skin care collection as I know I can rely on it if my skin is acting up.

Weleda Skin Food // This is another product I will always have in my collection. If you suffer with very dry skin and/or eczema especially on your face then you need to try this. It smells amazing, sort of reminds me of chocolate, and is a very thick cream almost balm like in texture. You only need a small amount and it gets rid of dry patches straight away. I've already gone out and bought another tube.

Vichy Idealia Life Serum x3 // Somehow I managed to collect three of these mini tubes of serum so I was able to properly try it out and get quite a few uses out of it and I now own the full size. It you have days when you skin looks quite dull or even, like me, you have very dry skin and you want an illuminating under make-up then this is for you.

Aromatherapy Associates Bath Oil in Inner Strength and Support Equilibrium // I love these mini bath oils as they're the perfect way to test out all the different scents before buying a full size. I still haven't quite decided which scent I will buy but this is definitely my favourite bath oil I've tried so far.

Origins Make A Difference Plus+ Rejuvenating Treatment x2 // These  nearly add up the full size I think so although I already have the full size, they would have been a great way to try it without buying the full size. These larger sample sizes are often on offer on the Origins website if you buy certain products or spend a certain amount. If you suffer with breakouts then you need to try this as it really does make a difference to my skin. I use it in place of a serum and only as and when I need it although I would use it daily if my skin was particularly bad. I also really like the other products in the Make A Difference range.

balance Me Moisture-Rich Face Cream // This has been nice to use in the winter when I needed a thicker moisturiser. I really like balance me products and I would think about buying the full size when I finish what I'm currently using.

Caudalie Vinoperfect Complexion Correcting Serum // These mini serum bottles from Caudalie are so cute! The pipette means I can control how much product I'm using and it applies like a dream. I am thinking of buying the full size once I finish my current serum.

Philip Kingsley Moisture Balancing Conditioner // I really like Philip Kingsley conditioners, they feel light and don't weigh the hair down but they are still incredibly moisturising.

Rituals Zensation Organic Rice Milk & Cherry Blossom Foaming Shower Gel // I was pleased to see this travel size come up on Latest In Beauty as it has the same scent as the bath oil that I have from Rituals and I always like to use matching scents. I love these types of shower gels that start off as a gel and then turn into a really nice lather that works great as a shaving gel. I will be buying the full size at some point as I still have quite a lot of the bath oil let.

Aromatherapy Associates Revive Bath & Shower Oil // I love these mini bath oils from Aromatherapy Associates and I'm slowly working my way through all the different scents. Once I finish them all I'm going to buy a full size but I can't make my mind up on which one. Revive is a mix of grapefruit, rosemary and juniper.

balance Me Super Toning Body Wash // I've already been through the full size of this shower gel and really like it. It smells nice and is also quite moisturising.

L'Occitane Immortal Cream // Now this mini jar of cream is tiny! I didn't get many uses out of it to properly test it out but it worked nice enough.

Origins Make A Difference Plus + Rejuvenating Treatment // I already have the full size of this and it's one of my skin care staples when my skin is acting up with breakouts. It helps to even out my skin without stripping or drying my skin out. I will definitely be buying another tub once I run out.

  1. I have a gigantic sample stash, I really need to start using them, you've inspired me!

  2. You've used up loads of products! I also find that the Benefits They're Real mascara dries up quickly so I think the mini samples are better than buying the full-sized product. I am now very tempted to start using my sample of the liz earle cleanse and polish hot cloth cleanser that I've had sitting in my stash a while! xx

  3. Love the mini-reviews. I am quickly running out of my samples after making a big effort to use them up!
