Products I tried in samples and loved

I love samples and mini products. Not only they look cute, they are also perfect for trying out a product before actually purchasing it and a couple of uses (or more) will tell if our skin loves the product or not and whether we should buy full size.

Today I am talking about the products I tried in samples (or minis) and loved and some of them are on my wishlist to buy full size since they worked nicely and I enjoyed using them.

The most amazing product I tried recently that gave me results from first use, the Lancer The Method: Polish. It is a powerful anti-ageing exfoliator from the famous Lancer Method, the core of Dr. Lancer’s philosophy, that is based on a biological principle universal to all skins: the cellular cycle of renewal. The three steps of The Lancer Method dramatically improve the appearance of fine lines, texture, discoloration, and pore size. 

Victoria Beckham's go to product, it is formulated with pure minerals, pumpkin and pomegranate enzymes to gently and effectively remove surface debris and dull, dry surface cells. It is a lovely solution to fine lines and wrinkles, dryness and dullness. A warming element and lavender scent completes this luxurious daily ritual.

As I mentioned above, my skin felt a-mazing from first use. It was like I had a facial and my skin looked fresh, clear and the lines around my lips were smoother. If only this wasn't that expensive, it retails at US$75.00 for 120ml which unfortunately is out of my league. 

Filorga Time-Filler - a cream that is designed to correct fine lines and wrinkles and promises to give results from day three. 

- Contraction wrinkles: a botox-like tripeptide limits muscular contractions and relaxes the skin for a younger-looking face.
- Wrinkles caused by sagging: a powerful peptide combined with NCTF, stimulates the synthesis of the six major tissue components. Simultaneously, a peeling-like active ingredient smoothes micro-reliefs.
- Dryness wrinkles: hyaluronic acid, a reference compound used in injections, is encapsulated for deeper diffusion and a visible filler effect.

Since this one is a sample and I haven't used it for more than 10 days, I cannot tell if it reduces fine lines by 19% and frown lines by 39% but I can surely tell that the lines around my face feel soft and relaxed, so this must be working.

Murad Essential-C Day Moisture - this daily moisturizer from Murad has the nicest light citrus scent and it is a powerful, anti-oxidant cream that revitilizes stressed skin. It has SPF30 which is a great protection for winter, protects skin't moisture barrier and improves skin's elasticity and firmness. It is lightweight and absorbs within seconds and it will be a great product to use in summer too. I received this cream in the Look Fantastic Box - November edition and it lasted me about 10 days with daily use. 

Decleor Hydra Floral - another moisturizing cream I enjoyed using and also received in a Look Fantastic box. A lightweight formula that nourishes and provides hydration for 24 hours and leaves skin feeling plump, soft and hydrated. The Neroli essential oil with its dreamy fragrance ensures skin is left hydrated.

Laneige Water Sleeping Mask - I have been using this sleeping mask for a long time now and this best seller mask is a 'miracle' for my skin. If you want to wake up to fresh and revitalized skin even though you didn't have 8 hours of sleep, then you need this sleeping mask. It restores moisture while we sleep revealing a well rested, refreshed and youthful skin.

Laneige Water Sleeping Mask - Lavender - this mask has the same effects and benefits as the original version but the addition of lavender oil aims to help you sleep better at night. Lavender scent relaxes the body and has aroma-therapeutic properties and you wake up with a less puffy and relaxed skin. 

This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray - I read amazing things about this one but haven't got the change to try it before receiving it in another Look Fantastic box. It does what is says to do and 'it works'! I wish I had this one in October when we moved to a new house and this period was so stressful and I had so much trouble getting to sleep every night. This would help me a lot. I tried is as soon as I received it and it's great how this little thing relaxes me and helps me sleep. How to use it? Just spray on your pillow and sweet dreams!

Avene Sun Care SPF50 Tinted Cream - I am a huge fan of Avene sunscreen products and I have been using them for years. It's a brand I always trust to protect my skin during summer. This product evens out my complexion and gives me a natural healthy glow while giving me SPF50 protection.

So these are the minis I really enjoyed using and probably buy full size (well except the Lancer Polish which is soooo expensive).
