October #SampleSunday rundown

Hi guys ! Happy Monday. How was your weekend ?? Did you enjoy your Halloween if you celebrated ?

If you follow me on any of my social media channels , you know I started a new series with a mini review on product samples or magazine freebies I have. I usually just tossed mine into a box to try out one day - and I decided why not start using them weekly and give a little mini review each Sunday morning. 

I decided to do a monthly rundown on the blog too on those products and share my mini reviews here if you don't follow me anywhere else. 

I will have a little rating system here on the blog - I will be giving each product a rating out of 5 in lipstick ( ) form. 

So let's see what samples I tried this month :

Week 1  (  )

The first sample product is this Hask Keratin Smoothing Shampoo & Conditioner combo sachets. I got about 2 uses out of the shampoo and conditioner. The combo does an amazing job to make your hair smooth without weighing it down.

Week 2  ()

Nuxe Rêve de Miel Hand and Nail Cream. Since I'm such a huge fan of the lipbalm- I was expected to be blown away by this pricey hand cream. Sadly I was left disappointed. While the cream did provide temporary hydration it didn't leave my hands soft and hydrated for longer than half an hour after use. At the price point I'd much rather stick to my current hand creams.

Week 3 ()

Today's #SampleSunday product is a cult favourite - Thierry Mugler's #Alien perfume. This is a sample I love getting - it's the perfect date night scent. The scent lasts forever on me too.

Week 4 ( )

Today's #Sample Sunday is the Filgora Skin Structure Firmness redefinition serum. I got about 4 nightly uses from this sachet. Its an amazing smoothing serum and my skin did look amazing after using it. This serum will definitely come on my list to try next.

Week 5 ()

My #SampleSunday product today is from one of my favourite places - the Lush  Salted Coconut Hand Scrub. This is one of the best hand scrubs I've ever tried and I will definitely but the full size one the sample is finished.

I will continue in November - so if you are not following me on one of my platforms - I'm sharing the links here too .

Any exciting plans for this week ?

Who can believe we are almost in November. That's seriously crazy how quickly quickly this year has gone by.

  4. i looooove this idea to do on the blog too! i was considering posting about samples as well! i found the Lush scrub very interesting, as you know i love Lush and i had never even considered scrubs for hands even existed..

    1. I'm in love with Lush ... Lol - although my budget don't always allow for the love affair.

  5. I badly want to try Lush's Mask of Magnaminty but it's just so dang expensive :(

  8. This reminded me that I have so many samples products I need to use soon! I am on the hunt for a nice keratin shampoo and conditioner to control the frizziness of my hair. I might try Hasl's. :)
