Sample Sunday

You know how you buy makeup or beauty products and you get samples? Then you are so excited about them and you cant wait to try them, but then they pile up or get old before you use them and they just go to waste. Well I decided I wanted utilize them and do a weekly post called sample sundays. Sometimes the samples are very small so I will just be giving my first impression review on those.


I am starting off with the "Korres Greek Yoghurt Advanced Nourishing Sleeping Facial" I have used this about 5 times in 2 weeks. This was a generous sample so I was able to test it out for awhile. I found my skin to be a bit brighter when I would wake up in the morning and I would look like my skin was refreshed. I didn't notice it help my dry skin though. My face was still dry and patchy in certain places. Overall I would recommend this for dry skin, but if you have extremely dry skin like mine don't expect it to drastically improve the moisture of your skin :)

Next up is "OleHenriksen ultimate lift eye gel".  I have been using this product for 3 weeks now. I apply it under my eyes and under the brow bone. My eyes looked so much better while I was using this. When applying makeup I noticed the lines were less noticeable. Without makeup on my eyes looked refreshed & wide awake. I would for sure recommend this if your looking to try out another product. It is for all skin types and is anti-aging.

I love my "Estee Lauder Idealist" I got this sample, but I happen to own a big bottle of it. This is used as a pore minimizing treatment that you put on after you moisturize your skin, and before you put on foundation. I love the smell of it. It is so refreshing. Reminds me of cucumber and lemons. My makeup and pores always look much better when I use this product. 

Next up is "Mi Corazon by Oscar de la Renta" Unfortunately this was a fail for me. It was to strong, and it is the type of perfume you can almost taste on the tip of your tongue. It reminds me of something my grandma would have, so maybe it would be popular for the cute older ladies :)

I thought I would add a Coffee product to this. "Gevalia Kaffe, House Blend in Medium/Dark" We were sent a sample in the mail. My husband is the coffee drinker of the family so I had him try it. He likes his coffee black and strong. He said this coffee was easy to drink, but didn't have much kick to it. He would buy it again if it was cheap enough. 

I will list the product here so you can go buy them and try them out if want to. Thanks for reading, and hope you come back next week for more of sample sunday.
