1. Diorskin Nude foundation trial size 5 ml
My overall impression
- I've used this foundation before and I like it. It gives my skin very
natural finish yet it covers imperfections well. The staing power is
decent but not transfer-proof. It also doesn't break me out which is
always a big bonus. I took it with me on my 5-week holiday and one small
5 ml lasted me this whole time.
Would I buy it again
- Yes, it is a good general foundation. I usually wait intill it is on
sale on strawberrynet as my last full size bottle only cost me $34
2. Covergirl Lash Blast Volume
Would I buy it again? - No, even though it only cost me $10. There are better mascaras out there in the same price range.
3. Crabtree and Evelyn India Hicks hand cream
Would I buy it again? - No, there are other hand creams that
suit me better. I will still use it however if it comes as a freebie or
GWP. I also dislike carrying metal tubes in my bag as they can leak.
4. L'Occitane Essential Oils shower gel, trial size 15 ml
Would I buy it again?- If I find it on sale as L'Occitane body products are a bit overpriced.
5. De Lorenzo Granite Hair Spray, travel size
Would I buy it again? - Yes, this is one of the best hairs prays I've tried.
6. L'Oreal Elnett Satin Hair Spray, Full Size
My overall impression - A
lot of people seem to like this product but it wasn't for me. It
doesn't hold my hair well and it seem to disappear after few hours. Plus
the scent is very nauseating.
Would I buy it again? - No, I didn't like it at all.
7. L'Occitane Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner, 75 ml each (trial size)
My overall impression - The
size was perfect for travelling, it lasted me 4 weeks. The shampoo
itself was very nice and thick and foamed up well even in hard water.
The conditioner was on the light side (I guess it is means to be like
that to prevent adding weight to hair). Both had pleasant herbal scent.
Would I buy it again? - No, I still prefer repairing shampoo and conditioner from L'Occitane even though I have fine hair. They make my hair super soft and shiny.
8. Dove Triple Moisturising Body Wash, Full Size
My overall impression - Creamy body wash with generic and somewhat chemical scent
Would I buy it again? - No,
there are better products out there even in the same price range. I got
it because I really like the original Dove soap thinking it will be
very similar but I found moisturising properties were very average plus I
wasn't a huge fan of the scent.
9. Chanel Les 4 Ombres in Dunes, full size
My overall impression -I
had this palette for ages. At first it seemed to be very ordinary - one
dark brown, one beige taupe, one camel beige and one white with golden
pearl. However these eye shadows blended beautifully and subtle pearl
pigment made them more interesting than plain matte beige and brown eye
shadows. I've hit major pan on all of them and had to throw them out
because they became quite dry and hard to use.
Would I buy it again? -
I would love to find a similar palette but unfortunately this one was a
limited edition. I got Urban Decay Naked Basics but it doesn't compare
10. Clarins Alcohol-free Toning Lotion with Camomile, Trail Size 100 ml
Would I buy it again? -Yes, I think it is a perfect toner esp. during cooler weather.
