For 2013 one of my beauty resolutions was to dive into my box of samples.
My whole life whenever my mother received samples, she threw them in a box and never looked at them again. I, following suit, did the same. I grabbed a box and just stuck in all my samples, unopened, untested, and ironically uninterested.
Most skin care samples I thought would be of little use as my skin would be unable to indicate how beneficial a product will be with one use, especially with those little sample packets.
I seem to have been in the minority.
It seems many people LOVE diving into their samples and experimenting with a little bit of new.
So presenting (after removal of anything that looked long past expired) my samples box for 2013
Hopefully useful and potential reviews will be coming from this little resolution.
Lesson#1 from sample diving:
I have already learned an important lesson from these samples.
I have been trying a deluxe sample of a Shiseido cleanser which I use after removing my make up or if I am spending the night somewhere outside my own home.
Remember what I said above about samples not making a difference?
(I still think this is true with the little one use packets)
I was using this on and off and last week I used it very often and woke up one day with a few spots.
I haven't had spots in months. I guess this was bringing out whatever my normal cleanser wasn't.
Bittersweet lesson. but lesson learned.
Anyone else care to take a dive?
