May Empties: Samples Edition

I think its safe to say that every sample featured in today's post has been a win for me!!

1.  Napoleon Auto Pilot Primer - This was a great travel size primer that is lovely and hydrating.  I've already got a full size one waiting in my drawers to be used!

2.  Lush Helping Hands - a gorgeous hand cream that sinks in fairly quickly and leaves hands feeling soft and hydrated.

3.  Rachel K CC Blemish Balm in Neutral - I was really impressed by the coverage and finish of this base product.  Felt really lovely on the skin and lasted a good 8 hours.  Will be looking at purchasing the full product of this once I use up the products I already have.

4.  Redken Diamond Oil Shampoo - this came in a set with a conditioner and treatment but because I always double shampoo I used this more quickly than the others.  This is a beautiful product but unfortunately it's just a little too heavy for my fine hair.  Whilst I loved the softness and hydration it gave my hair it did leave my hair slightly weighed down.

5.  Dermalogica Pre-Cleanse - I was so excited to get this sample because I've read so many rave reviews on it.  I've never used a pre-cleanser before and even though I thoroughly enjoyed using this product every time I think of a pre-cleanser that crazy meme lady starts singing "Ain't nobody got time fo that".  Cleansing before cleansing just seems.... pointless

6. Lonvitalite Coconut Milk Hydrating & Nourishing Facial Mask - this is a sheet mask that left my skin feeling plump and soft.  If I saw these again I would definitely buy them.  A perfect mask for a hot bath on a cold winters night.

Happy Friday Everyone - we're heading into a lovely long weekend for the Queens Birthday and I've got a hot date with the mid year winter sales!  What are your plans for the weekend?

    1. Thanks Jac - did you get the pink or black?
      Re the giveaway - I must've got the same memo as you - I received the same products just this week :)

  2. Hi Kayte. Did the Napolean primer do anything to minimise pores that you noticed? Love the sound of that hand cream. I haven't bought any Lush products before but I keep on hearing how good they are!

    1. Not that I noticed Susannah but I've never really looked out for it either - I have heard that the Face of Australia primer is exactly the same as the Napoleon one but about $30 cheaper so I'd try that one instead if I were you - unfortunately I'd already bought a new one before I knew that lol. It's not a silicone based primer either it's more a lightweight cream - I like it coz it feels lovely and silky on my somewhat dry skin :)


Feel free to comment or ask any questions. I would love to hear from you x
