I love the sample sets that are available at Sephora and Ulta at Christmas. It gives me a chance to try out makeup and skincare to see what I think without committing to full sizes. I especially like the Gift With Purchase bags that Sephora has during the holidays. I placed 2 separate orders and was able to snag 2 bags of goodies.
My first order was Fresh Facial on the Fly. I love Fresh Soy Face Cleanser and this limited edition set had some other great products as well. It sells for $26 and as I write this is still available online at Sephora.
This set contains:
Soy Face Cleanser 0.6 oz/ 20 ml – a bestselling, do-it-all gel cleanser for all skin types that gently removes makeup—even mascara—and dirt without drying the skin.
Rose Face Mask 0.5 oz/ 15 ml – a cult-favorite hydrating gel mask infused with real rose petals and soothing rosewater that tones the complexion.
Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream with Super 7 Complex 0.5 oz/ 15 ml – a lightweight daily moisturizer that provides up to 24 hours of significant moisture and diminishes visible signs of aging while supporting a radiant appearance and prepping skin for makeup.
I have been wanting to try the Rose Face Mask for a while but didn’t want to fork out $62 for a 3.3 oz container. Honestly, even if I love it I wouldn’t spend that much on any mask.The Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream sounds like a really good winter moisturizer.
I was able to pick up an amazing GWP bag of samples with my Fresh purchase. It had some great samples including:
- Smashbox Liquid Lip
- Fresh Rose Face Mask
- Clinique Moisture Surge Hydrating Supercharged Concentrate
- Replica Eau de Toilette
- L’Occitane Amande Huile Souplesse Supple Skin Oil
- Biossance 100% Squalane Oil
- Clean Warm Cotton
That was a pretty sweet GWP. Now I have 2 of the Rose Face masks and I like the Smashbox lippie. I m looking forward to trying the Squalane Oil and I love Clinique skincare.
In my next purchase, I got the belif Bestsellers On-The-Go Travel Kit. This set contains:
Creamy Cleansing Foam Moist 30 ml/1.01fl. oz. – A vitamin-C packed creamy foam cleanser with natural herbs that gently yet effectively remove makeup and impurities while hydrating the skin. Bergamot Herbal Extract Toner 20 ml/.67 fl. oz. – This botanical toner features a unique gel-liquid format that’s designed to hydrate and balance normal to oily skin to create an even and deeply moisturized complexion after cleansing. Formulated with bergamot and sage—apothecary herbal ingredients that help to clarify and hydrate skin by locking in moisture—skin appears supple and revitalized over time. Hungarian Water Essence 10 ml/.33 fl. oz. – Hungarian Water Essence recharges skin’s lost hydration back in an instant. This formula contains a blend of apothecary herbs, including rosemary and lavender—powerful hydrating and antioxidant agents. This ultra-light watery texture instantly glides onto skin to provide a burst of powerful moisture that penetrates skin for a long-lasting hydration, leaving the skin healthy-looking, soft, and supple. Moisturizing Eye Bomb 5 ml/.17 fl. oz. – Formulated with hydrating herb, comfrey leaf, and elasticity-boosting pennywort herb, the Moisturizing Eye Bomb provides a flood of intensive moisture for radiant and youthful-looking eyes. This cooling texture instantly bursts with hydration and blends seamlessly, keeping the eye area supple and hydrated while prepping it for a smooth crease-free makeup application. The True Cream – Aqua Bomb 10 ml/.33 fl. oz. – This formula contains a blend of apothecary herbs, including antioxidant-rich lady’s mantle which helps neutralize skin-damaging free radicals, improves skin elasticity, and minimizes the appearances of pores. The refreshing cream is formulated to burst when applied, releasing a flood of weightless moisture onto skin for a healthy, smooth, supple appearance.
I have heard great things about Belif skincare on social media and this kit is a great way to try the whole line for only $20. This kit is sold out on the Sephora website. I had planned on using this soon but it looks like it is for normal/combo skin. That is my summer skin. My winter skin can get dry so I will wait until spring to try this set.
The GWP that I got with this order was foil samples but there are some great products included.
- Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask
- Boscia Revitalizing Black Hydration Gel
- J. One Jelly Pack
- Dr. Jart+ Water Fuse
- Too Cool for School All-in-One Egg Mellow Cream
- Neogen Bio-Peel Gauze Peeling Lemon
- Son & Park Beauty Water
- Dr. Jart+ BB Beauty Balm
- Belif The True Cream – Aqua Bomb
- Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash
- touch in SOL No Poreblem Primer
- Belif Moisturizing Eye Bomb
- Laneige Water Sleeping Mask
- erborian Glow Creme
I am excited about trying everything in this sample pack! I already have several of the samples and know I love them. The Dr. Jart+ BB Cream is a favorite and I will be buying it soon. I am using the Son & Park Beauth Water now and love it. I will use the foil sample when I travel. I am also using the Laneige Water Sleeping Mask and like it very much as well.
I am looking forward to trying all my samples. Maybe I will find an HG in there somewhere. Have you used any of these products? Did you like them? Did you take advantage of Sephora’s GWP’s over the holidays? Did you get the ones that I did or did you pick different ones?
