What I Received:

1. Bain De Terre Hair Oil

This tiny sample has argan oil and passion flower in the formula designed to aid coloured hair in styling. As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve gone more blonde this summer so I love that this will help protect my hair as I put it through the torture of curling, straightening and direct sun exposure. Full Size Price $14.65 (1.7oz), Sample Price $2.15 (0.25oz)

2. Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real Mascara

OMG! I love this mascara, I own the large size as well as have about 3 samples! I can never get enough of this. I’m sure many of you have tried it and already know how you feel about it. I’m glad to get another sample because I really like this formula and like that I can carry this around when I travel or as a back up whenever my large size runs out. Full Size Price $29.00 (0.3oz), Sample Price $9.67 (0.1oz)

3. Fekkai Technician Color Care Shampoo

So again I receive a shampoo without the matching conditioner, which is a bummer. BUT! I am really excited to try this because it will help protect my coloured hair. It smells a like herbal essences shampoo. Full Size Price $28.00 (16oz), Sample Price $3.50 (2oz)

4. Gillchrist & Soames Spa Therapy Body Lotion

This lotion is full of marine extracts, I like that it dried really quickly and made my skin feel smooth and moisturized afterwards. It smells almost like a green tea, I can’t put my finger on it exactly but the smell is pretty faint. Full Size Price $18.00 (8oz), Sample Price $3.04 (1.35oz)

5. Vasanti Cosmetics BrightenUp Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator

DSC_0093

I received this exact sample in Ipsy this month, which isn’t so terrible. This has little crystals that mimic microdermabrasion to give a deep clean. I’m really excited to try it. Full Size Price $34.00 (120 g), Sample Price $5.67 (20 g)

My Thoughts

This box is in-line with the theme of having a healthy summer because all the products are geared towards conditioning your skin and hair. Total Value of my samples; $45.24.

  1. I’m interested in hearing your opinion about the Fekkai shampoo! Last year, I purchased a full sized shampoo and conditioner, for the price, I was expecting so much more – left my hair not feeling really clean! But it may just be my hair – I’d love to get another person’s opinion on the product!
