sampling samples #4
its that time again... my room is piled high with boxes full of products at the moment and quite frankly i can't be bothered to search through to find things. so for the mean time i grabbed a few sample sized products to see me through.
benefit posie tint
i'd had this in my drawer for a while but i'm not really big on stains. this tint is a beautiful baby pink and blended seamlessly into my skin, giving you that little flush of colour. this and my bb cream together creates the perfect 'no make-up' make-up look for my lazy days. i would really want to repurchase this when it runs out but it is a little on the expensive side so it may have to be a birthday gift.
monu first defence hydrating moisturiser
i was unsure about this when i first put it on. the smell isn't unpleasant... just a little odd, but the product itself is nice. it isn't sticky feeling and left my skin feeling soft and ready for make-up. i also like that this has spf 15 in it, not enough alone for everyday wear but a step in the right direction!
maybelline bb cream
i was a little nervous trying this. british bb creams seem to either be really popular or don't quite make the cut, compared to their Asian counterparts anyway. on paper this seemed like a good choice for me; with 8 different benefits and spf 30 i was expecting a lot. the colour blended beautifully despite me being quite pale and left no oily, sticky feeling to my skin. it left my skin feeling fresh and gave a light-medium coverage, not quite enough for nights out etc but perfect for those warm sunny days when you don't want much. this is already on my list to pick up next time i go down to boots.
paul mitchell awapuhi texturizing sea spray
i LOVE this product. it is the perfect size to chuck in my bag, it smells amazing, and it gives me the most glorious beachy waves with a quick spritz! i'd say this is probably the best texturising spray i've used to date and it's definitely something i would look to pick up next time i'm out!
sun sense invisible tint finish
i wore this to the beach today and it is the perfect base for your skin! it comes out tinted but it barely visible on the skin, blending in seamlessly. it feels quite thin and watery but doesn't hang around on the skin. it sinks in straight away and isn't at all sticky. the spf 50 is definitely a plus point too!
