So it’s time for this months samples post, if you haven’t yet read Octobers you can backtrack here! This months is a mixture of body and facial care, enjoy!
This is definitely more of a gel texture than anything else and it is water based so I found it to be quite thin, it did take around a minute to dry in on application but in all honesty the only difference I could feel on my skin after using was a strange tightening sensation which I’m not sure is a good or bad thing. I didn’t feel like this product really did anything for my skin unfortunately so I wouldn’t recommend it.
I got a bit confused with this as it just kind of slipped off my face no matter which way round I put it on, I managed to hold it on for around 5 minutes but it got kind of annoying doing so. To be fair it did make the skin around my lips feel slightly more moisturised and soft but I can’t say it did anything for my actual lips which is a bit of a disappointment as I really could use it this time of year! For 99p I’d probably recommend it if you’re looking for a moisture boost around the mouth.
I was surprised on opening as I thought the particles would be a lot bigger but it was quite powdery and clumpy, the smell had an essence of spice to it alongside the coffee undertones, sort of curry-like which I also thought was unusual and possibly slightly unpleasant for a body care product. The abrasive-ness of the scrub was nice, not too harsh but not useless either but I’m not sure if it’d be abrasive enough to do the things it claims to. It did leave my skin feeling lovely and soft afterwards though and luckily the smell didn’t linger either. I don’t think I’d recommend this for what it’s priced at if I’m honest but if it was a little cheaper I’d definitely consider it!
So not too successful this month with the samples sadly, have you tried out any new products recently which have disappointed you?
