January Samples & Empties Part 2

Fresh Seaberry Restorative Body Cream: I loved this. It’s a moderately hydrating creamy body cream without being too heavy or greasy. I adore the light slight citrus scent. I would totally buy it again.

Omorovicza Gentle Buffing Cleanser: Love this one. Really mild small buffing beads in a really light creamy lotion style cleanser base. Mild scent. I used this in the shower as a staple. I would buy again once I run through my current Zelens I’m playing with. I talked about it HERE.

AnteAGE GF|Accelerator: I love the AnteAGE serum. I’ve been dying to try their retinol containing Accelerator and AnteAGE kindly gifted this one. This really has more of a light lotion texture. Maybe almost creamy serum. It’s light. It wasn’t enough for me at night to keep my skin hydrated. I did like it but I ended up pushing it to days. I really like the concentrated GF Serum better and I’ll stick with that one. More to come soon.

Velvet Report Micellar Cleansing Water: This was OK. It didn’t seem to take my mascara off as good as Bioderma which I prefer more. I did hate the spray top, I found myself just unscrewing the top everyday to pour out the contents. Not a repurchase.

EVE LOM Time Retreat Radiance Boost Treatment: This is a retinol serum with mild AHA from fruits. I loved the light serum style texture. I also love the time release EVE LOM retinol it works great on my skin. Good results. The mild fruit acids was OK but it makes it hard to layer with acid toners or serums if you’re an acid junkie. More to come.

NIOD Survival 0: I loved this. This is a creamy serum for detox from environmental stress and age caused by pollutants incurred in the day time. More to come.

African Botanics Resurrection Eye Creme: I just adore this eye cream. It’s one of my top favorites I’ve ever tried. Review HERE. I would buy again but this version is discontinued. I did grab the new version but I haven’t tried it yet.

OSKIA Eye Wonder: I love OSKIA. This is a light serum with MSM, milk peptides and more coming soon.

Omorovicza Moor Cream Cleanser: I love the texture of this. It’s a creamy cleanser with a mud detox. The mint essential oils is a tad strong for me but it’s nice. I like it best on mornings to wake up.

Origins A Perfect World SPF40 Age-Defense Moisturizer: This was OK. Kind of thick, I didn’t like the SPF in it as it had too much of a white cast for me.

Perricone MD Face Finishing Moisturizer: This was one of my first true moisturizer loves. I still adore this lightweight cream for day use.

Clinique Moisture Surge 72-Hour: I loved this more hydrating gel cream. Fragrance free. Affordable.

Estee Lauder Re-Nutriv Ultimate Diamond Energy Creme: This was a nice moderately hydrating cream. Nothing stood out like I have to grab it in the future. Odd considering it’s really expensive. So I wouldn’t buy it, but it was OK in general.

Hey Honey Good Morning Honey Silk Face Serum: This was nice. A slightly creamy honey serum. It almost had a touch of oils in it so it was hydrating.

Brick Skincare Refresh Toner: I liked this. I really like essences more right now so while it’s nice I probably wouldn’t buy right now just for that reason.

Natura Bisse Diamond White Sun Protection: I hated this. It was so thick and kind of goopy. It has a pale tan color that the white cast was too strong for me on. It was kind of like spackle.

Odacite Mint + Green Tea Mist: I liked this. A real mint scent with no cooling feeling. I love green tea too.

Earthwise Beauty Carrot-a-Day Face and Eye Serum: I love all the other Earthwise Beauty samples I’ve tried to date. This one was not for me. It was a thinner textured serum but it’s the scent that killed me. It’s got a scent that reminds me of Vodka or something. It’s really strong.

TULA Hydrating Day & Night Cream: This was an OK lighter moisturizer. Nothing really stood out to me to make me want to grab it. It was just OK.

Bioderma Matricium: Love this watery serum to help skin repair itself faster. Review HERE.

African Botanics Fleurs d’Afrique Oil: Loved this oil. This was my last sample of several. Great nighttime oil with retinal.

Tata Harper Energy Treatment: I love Tata Harper’s aromatherapy oils. My favorite is the night time oil.

SUQQU Framing Eyebrow Liquid Pen Camel: I just bought a new one to replace this one. I love this brow pen. Perfect for light hair like lines and detail. Review HERE.

Goodal Waterest Clear UpĀ Gauze: This is a acid toner peel pad using fruit acids. The natural gauze is kind of rough for me. This came in a now discontinued set anyway.

Skin Better AlphaRet Overnight Cream Face: Loved this medium weight cream. I would like to try a big one someday.

La Mer The Moisturizing Soft Cream: I used all these on my nose when it was being beat up from a cold. It’s soothing and I like this lighter weight version of the cream.

ORIBE Gold Lust Repair & Restore Shampoo & Conditioner: Love Oribe. Love the Gold Lust line. It’s hydrating and lush without being too heavy.

Alterna Caviar Infinite Color Hold Shampoo & Conditioner: Love Alterna Caviar. I like this version better than the original as it’s a touch less hydrating. It gives more volume. Hard to tell on a sample if it really does anything for color retention.
