Trash Talk: June Sample Edition

8:42 pm

Sorry about the distinct lack of posts lately! I'm currently in Italy so I haven't been thinking a great deal about my blog. I will probably be a little quieter for the next few weeks, but then it will be back to business as usual!

(If you want to follow my travels, follow my Instagram: @laurathetoughest)

I'm sure you all checked out my Full Size Trash Talk (if not, do so now!), so it's now time for the sample trash talk. There were a lot of samples this month....so sorry for the huge long list!!


Deluxe Samples 


It's a good cleanser, gets all your make up off and is refreshing, but I didn't find it super exciting and I definitely wouldn't pay $40 to buy it, I think there are better products for a much more reasonable price. Will I repurchase? No.

This is a good, hydrating moisturiser and it does have SPF 30+ which is a huge bonus. In saying that I didn't see anything exciting about this product. Will I repurchase? No, I think there are far better moisturisers for a cheaper price.

Desperate for more hydration? You need to buy this overnight mask. It is thick, creamy and super hydrating. It will leave your skin feeling hydrated and refreshed overnight. Plus it smells AMAZING! Will I repurchase? Already have!

Amazing. That is all I have to say. After two months of dry, flaky skin, this moisturiser almost fixed it instantly. It is a gel moisturiser and it absorbs into the skin so quickly you can barely even tell you've put anything on your face, even if you put an oil underneath. It leaves you skin feeling hydrated, without the residue. Will I repurchase? I already have.

It smells amazing. Everyone noticed and could smell it. It's not floral or sweet, but something delicious that I simply cannot explain with words. My ends felt hydrated and didn't go as dry when applying heat. Will I repurchase? After I make it through all my other conditioners, yes I will.

I received this as a sample from my Beauty Heaven Beautorium order. It is a really creamy scrub, super gentle (barely even there kind of gentle). Will I repurchase? It may just be that I prefer a coarser scrub, but no I won't. I felt like it was just a cream cleanser than a scrub.

If you don't like coffee, don't buy this. It smells so strong of coffee and is the thickest mask I've ever tried. I wasn't a huge fan of the thickness, it felt a little suffocating and I didn't notice any change in my skin after trying it either. Will I repurchase? No.

Lush Ro's Argan Body Conditioner - $32.95
I was pretty excited to get a sample of this as I loved the Christingle one they had over Christmas. It is essentially a conditioner for your legs, helping to provide a little more hydration to leave your skin soft. I use this after shaving because it helps soothe my legs and keep them hydrated. This has an iconic Lush scent and is hydrating just like Christingle. Will I repurchase? Probably not, I'm not hugely excited by the body conditioners at the moment, but we'll see in the future!

Philosophy Purity Made Simple Cleanser - from $18
I spoke about this cleanser in my April Favourites earlier this year. It is such a great basic cleanser to get any make up off! Will I repurchase? Once I finish all my other cleansers, probably yes!

Philosophy Miracle Worker Cleanser and Mask - $45
After loving the Purity cleanser I was excited to try this. Like Purity, it makes it super easy to get all of your make up without any of the fuss or frills. However I didn't find it that exciting after that.I would just say it's a good cleanser without any other hype. Will I repurchase? Probably not.

Pixi Glow Tonic - $45
I hated this when I bought a bottle not too long ago, I ended up giving the bottle away I didn't enjoy it that much. However when I received a sample I decided I would try again and I have to say I love it now. It is super gentle, smells good and leaves my skin feeling soft. I'm a huge fan now! Will I repurchase? At some stage, yes!

Benefit Porefessional - $53
Everyone raves about this stuff, and yea it's not so bad, but I did find it kind of drying. Maybe it's just that I have dry skin at the moment and always want something a little more hydrating, but it didn't do much for my skin and I ended up having to put another hydrating primer on over the top before foundation to feel comfortable. Will I repurchase? No.


Sachet Samples

A really great, gentle exfoliant. It comes in quite a thick paste, and I would recommend having a rather damp face before attempting to use it as it is quite hard to spread/massage into the skin when you have dry skin. However, once you are able to massage it into the skin, it has a really gentle exfoliation that will leave your skin feeling soft, clean and fresh. It is challenging to wash off I found, you need a fair bit of water and possible some cleanser, otherwise you will just keep finding more grains on your face - See more at: https://www.sohoskincare.com.au/dermalogica-age-smart-multivitamin-thermafoliant-75ml?search=Dermalogica%20AGE%20Smart%20Multivitamin%20Thermafoliant#sthash.ty7fAyqL.dpuf

I really enjoyed this eye cream! It has a very thick consistency, but feels very smoothing and blurring over your eye area. My eyes aren't yet showing many signs of ageing, but I do wake up with quite puffy eyes in the morning and found that this cream helped relieve some of that puffiness. It's also the perfect way to blur your fine lines before putting make up over the top! It simply blurs them away! Will I repurchase? It is honestly only the price tag holding me back from repurchasing.

I didn't see any changes in my skin when I sampled this product. It smelt amazing and came with a buffer lotion for those who haven't tried retinol before, to help soothe you into it. Will I repurchase? No.

Dermalogica Charcoal Mask - $65
You guys should already know the love I have for this mask (April Favourites again...) so I won't say much about it, except it's amazing. Will I repurchase? Don't need to, already have a tube of it!

I received this in my recent Feelunique order and I tried it this month. I have to say I wasn't hugely excited. I didn't notice any change in my skin and it didn't really hydrate my skin. It has a very strong rose scent too, which I don't enjoy. Will I repurchase? No.

Clinique Sculptwear - from $72
Everyone raves about this stuff, and I don't know whether it's just me or the fact that I only got one use out of it, but I didn't notice a difference in my skin. I need a few more goes before I can give a great review. Will I repurchase? Hesitant to without more trial.

Amele Intimate Freshen Up Wipes - $5.99
I only had one wipe to try (and excuse the awkward topic area...) but it did make me feel quite fresh and clean down there. I think they would come in handy if you get itchy or uncomfortable downstairs and just need a freshen up during the day. Will I repurchase it? Look I won't say no!

Amele Intimate Wash - $5.99
This is very much like the wipes, designed for your intimate area it leaves you feeling very clean and fresh downstairs. Will I repurchase it? Look I think I will stick to my usual soap/shower gel. It might not be designed for intimate areas, but it does the job.
