This time I’ve included full size, deluxe size samples and samples of items that I’d like to use up.
I’ve selected a mix of skin care, body care, fragrance and cosmetics for a well rounded challenge.
Invigorating Body Lotion with Tea Tree Oil from Carapex’s Pure Mauve Line has a strong tea tree oil scent, but is hydrating. As the weather gets cooler, I need to remember to use body lotion on a regular basis, so I’ve added this to Finish 6 By Christmas. I’m hoping the psoriasis on my body doesn’t flare up this year, but if it does I think the tea tree oil will help.
Bite Beauty Whipped Cherry Exfoliant Scrub Stick deluxe size sample is moisturizing, but not as exfoliating as I’d like. I won’t be repurchasing this when it’s gone because I prefer the e.l.f. Lip Exfoliator, which is way less expensive.
Landeva Organics Argan Oil & Frankincense Organic Serum was sent to me by the company as a free gift with purchase. I have loved every product I’ve used from this company, and the added bonus is they are Canadian! I want to make sure I use this on a daily basis to see if it’s something I want permanently in my fall-winter skin care routine.
CoverGirl Lashblast Fusion Very Black Mascara was sent to me free from BzzAgent to test and review. So far I like it alright. I find it lengthens my lashes, but doesn’t volumize at all. It doesn’t fade, flake, or smudge so I would recommend you give it a try if you need lengthening. I make sure to only keep mascara open for 3 months, so this will for sure be done by Christmas.
Landeva Organics Argan Oil & Shea Butter Facial Balm is a total winner in my books, especially for a winter moisturizer. I used up a full size facial balm already and forgot I had this sample. The Detox Clay Mask from Landeva Organics comes in a powder form that you have to mix to use. This is not something I like to do so I’m hoping I only have to use this once or twice. I prefer my masks to come in tubes or jars pre-mixed. Less mess!
These perfume samples will count as one product as well. Burberry Brit Rhythm Scented Temporary Tattoo is a one time use and should be kind of fun. Maybe I’ll wear it on Halloween. Gucci Guilty Eau de Toilette which is an Oriental Floral is a sample I received from a friend. I don’t believe I’ve ever tried a high end fragrance so I’m excited to give this a whirl.
I’ll be posting at least one update before the finale. What product do you want to use up before Santa Clause delivers presents?
