So every Sunday night I like to do what I call ‘Facial Fun Time’. On this day I like to use new face and hair products and just give my face that bit of extra boost for the week to come.
This past sunday I used my sample of Caudalie Instant Detox Mask. I’ve never used any Caudalie products before so I had no high or low expectation going in. The sample was a bit tiny but theres a surprisingly large amount of product, you can easily get a least two uses from it.
The Mask spread easily and you only need a thin layer on your face. It takes about 10 minutes to dry. When I put it on I felt a tingling sensation right away. It was not painful but just felt weird. I took it to mean it was working and my face just really needed it. (may have been a mistake)
I noticed it did not dry evenly, not sure why that is. It was also surprisingly dificult to clean off my face. I used warm water and a clean wash cloth. I had to go over my face several times before I got the mask completely off.
My skin is very sensative and when I was dome getting the mask off, my face was very red and irritated.
So it’s safe to say this is not recommended for sensitive skin, and because of that I will not be purchasing the fill size.
Another Sunday, another sample. Today’s sample is Dove Go Fresh Revitalize Body Wash. I got this sample from a Beauty Box 5.
This wash is Mandarin & Tiare flower scent which I love. This wash claims to give softer, smoother skin after one shower, and yes my skin did feel really soft. However, I did not get that squeaky clean feeling I usually get after a shower. I usually like using exfoliating scrubs and this was far from it.
The Soap was a creamy texture and I will admit it would be very good for someone who suffers from dry skin or really good in the winter. I would be buying the fulll size but I wouldn’t discount it out.
So I’ve seen quite a few bloggers do this and I was intrigued by the idea so I thought Why not? I have so many samples I’ve gotten that it seems like a shame that I don’t share my experiences of actually using the samples, especially if I purchase the product afterwards.
Today’s samples is HEY HONEY take it off exfoliating honey peel off mask. I’m not normally a big fan of honey (It’s sticky and tends to get everywhere) but I am such a big fan of peel off masks. The size sample I got was enough for 2-3 uses.
Hey Honey peel off mask was easy to use, it spread easily across my face and didn’t goop everywhere like some masks I’ve had before. It dried evenly which was great and it also peeled off really well. Be careful not to get any product in your eyebrows or in your hair as it was super tough to get out .
As well as going on well, it made my skin feel so soft and clean. I am totally going to get the full size as soon as I run out of my current peel off mask.
