Sample Killah Week 1

Thursday, July 10, 2014

Hi! I'm not dead! The heat has been deterring all my blog time though -- we've been having high twenties (high 70s/low 80s in Fahrenheit) every day with lots of humidity. D: I have been able to work on my #SampleKillah kills though, and here is my progress from Week 1:

John Frieda Sheer Blonde Go Blonder Lightening Shampoo x3: I think this stuff actually works. I've been enjoying it, and kicking myself for ignoring my samples of it for so long.

John Frieda Sheer Blonde Go Blonder Controlled Lightening Spray: I've used this before (and have a couple more mini bottles and a full-size kicking around...) and it's pretty awesome. You basically spray it on your hair and it gradually lightens it with each use.


Avon Hand Cream: Alright, but unfortunately tends to pill when using too much (like when you're spreading thick layers on your skin to use it all up...)

Kiehl's Creme de Corps: Also alright. It's so hard to tell how much I'd like it with just a 5ml foil sample.

Violet Oasis Therapeutic Body Butter in Orange, Vanilla & Fennel: This smells amazing! I'd definitely buy a full-size if I didn't have enough body butters to last a century.


I hope you don't mind that I won't bother giving summaries for these; my basic summation of most of them is "meh, I need a larger size to really tell if I'd like them."

Juice Beauty Green Apple Cleansing Gel
Juice Beauty Green Apple Age Defy Serum
Juice Beauty Green Apple Age Defy Moisturizer
Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference Oil-Free Cleanser
Garnier Clean+ Nourishing Cleansing Oil
Elisha Coy BB All-In-One Cleanser
Racinne Brilliant Silky Smooth Protection Mask
Racinne Active Defense Booster Cream
Racinne Ultra-Fine Luminous Activating Essence

L'Oreal Youth Code Texture Perfector 
Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Light Cream

Biotherm Blue Therapy Serum-In-Oil Night

Marcelle BB Cream: Love this stuff -- one of the best North American BB creams, I think!

Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream: They call this a BB cream and a tinted moisturizer. Gah. Definitely more on the tinted moisturizer side; not much else to say there.

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment: This was an easy sample to kill considering the damn tube broke in two places and fell on the floor. I much prefer my OHWTO Lip Butters anyhow.. Saves me $20!


Crest Whitestrips: I almost forgot to include this one! I have six of these strips left. They work, but can hurt my teefs if I use them too frequently.


I'm actually pretty surprised at my total! I'll be posting my next kills on the 17th, 24th, and 31st of July. Make sure to check out Kalyn Lord's original Sample Killah post and follow the hashtag #SampleKillah on social to participate and watch each other's progress!
