Sample Attack Round II

It's really hard for me try out new samples, because if I find something that I like I'll just rush out and get them in full size, and since I'm on a "no buy", it's actually a torture, anyway, here's another list of samples that I've tried in the month of February:

Nuxe Refreshing and Relaxing Cream Mask - HK$280 / 1.7oz
No. of trials: 1

This mask is very strongly scented (floral), and have given me the biggest irritation. I left it on for about 5 minutes and my face has started to itch, I've rinse it off and my skin was still red and itchy. I don't know what's happening, I used to love Nuxe's skin care products, but recently floral scented stuffs seems to be irritate my skin.

Methode Swiss Thermal Oxygen Overnight Eye Mask - HK$385 / 15ml
No. of trials: 5

I've been searching for an overnight eye mask for ages, and so far the only one that I've tried is O' slee Dark Circle Reducing Sleeping Mask, and I've really liked it. I was really excited to try this out when the sales lady gave it to me, but was very disappointed with the product.

This product comes out like a gel with some tiny bits of blue particles that disappears once you massage it, when you start massaging, those blue particles will warm up, but after leaving it overnight, I did not notice any improvement on my undereye area, it didn't even look hydrated.

L'oreal Revita Lift Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Cream Night Cream - HK$159 / 50ml
No. of trials: 3

Amongst all these samples that I've tried, this is the only one that I'm unsure about, this cream has a very thick texture that I'm not a huge fan, but whenever I use this cream I always wake up with better skin, I'm not sure what has been improved, but I just look better. I think I'll use this a few more times to decide if I want to get it in full size.

Ultima II Cellular Re-New Eye Cream - HK$500 / 15ml
No. of Trials: 2 weeks

This was a decent eye cream, it was rich and hydrated without causing any milia, will definetly get this in full size.


  1. Have you tried Nuxe's Huile Prodigieuse? Do you like it?

  2. It's true. I've said to myself many times this month that I won't buy any makeup and skincare products anymore but I've bought a lot still. Yesterday is the lastest of the last and yet i find myself wanting to buy another product. It's torture!! I can't stop thinking about it. Lol
