Samples Review

Just thought I would share with you a few of the samples I have used over the past couple of months. Samples are such a great way to get a feel for the product before buying, you can often use testers in the shops but having a sample at home means you can really use products how you want a get a real feel for them and how they will work for you.


First up, Nivea Anti Age! This felt really silky on my skin and has added bonus of spf 15. It absorbed quite slowly which isn't ideal with a face moisturiser, you want it to sink in you you can get on with your day, my skin still felt sticky for 5 mins afterwards. In terms of anti-wrinkle benefits, you can't tell from one try! It smelt really nice and fresh...but I got some in my mouth and it tasted gross!
Available here for £14.99


Garner Ultra Lift moisturiser was thin, light and quickly absorbed in to my skin. There was no smell which was a bit disappointing. You only need a small amount if product so will last a long time.
Available here for £9.99


Nivea Soft felt fresh and clean and it asorbs quickly it to your skin. It's a versatile moisturiser, and at a bargain price think I may get one to keep in the car for emergencies and after being out in cold weather
Available here for £4.28!


Clinique Super Primer felt more like moisturiser than other primers I'm used to as it was thick and white. It sat nicely on the skin with a silky texture and had no fragrance. For a premium skin care band I don't think this is too pricey, sample provided 1ml and was more that enough for my face and neck.
Available here for £20 for 30ml

Has anyone else tried any of these products? What do you reckon?

    1. I always used to put them in my gym bag for emergencies! If you stick them straight in the shower or your make up bag your more likely to use them as they're to hand...or at least that's what I find!

    1. I hate risking it with expensive products! Sometimes they will have samples stashed away if you ask! Am following :)

    1. You can prod and sniff and rub it on the backs of your hands as much as you like in a store, but it's not the same as trying it at home!

    1. It was lovely! Thicker then I'm used to but I guess that's the good quality!

  12. I love the Nivea soft moisturiser. I´m using this for years and it´s the best one I tried out so far. Doesn´t breaks me out or irritate my skin.
