Sample Killah Week 3

Thursday, July 24, 2014



Can you believe it's Week 3 of Sample Killah already? And once again, my count is a bit low. Here's what I've killed:

Hair

shu uemura Full Shimmer Illuminating Shampoo: I believe I received this in my very first Topbox from December 2011! Way past overdue, huh? This is an alright shampoo... I can't say I noticed more shine than normal, plus it's way more expensive than my usual mass market brand of shampoos.

Nexxus Humectress Ultimate Hydrating Conditioner: Also a good conditioner, but I think I get comparable results from cheaper brands!

L'Oreal Professionnel Mythic Oil: Same comments as last time -- a nice, light oil that doesn't weigh down my hair or leave it looking greasy. I'm considering buying a full-size unless I find a cheaper alternative. (I'm obviously not good at splurging on haircare!)

Body

Satin Care with a Touch of Olay Shave Gel: I don't think I've ever used a Satin Care shave gel that hasn't done its job and left my legs feeling smooth, and this is no exception. I'm just not keen on shave gels in general though, as I always end up wasting a lot as the gel tends to fall off my legs. I've been using conditioner as shave gel lately and it seems to "stick" better.

Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Sunscreen Lotion: (Not pictured, as I don't have the bottle anymore.) I really like this sunscreen! It has a nice scent and is moisturizing. I reviewed it a while ago here. I'm thinking about buying a full-size version!

Face

Murad AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser: I liked this scrub, but I'm not sure I like it enough to buy a full-size at $36.

Clinique All About Eyes: I liked this as an all-over face cream, and it's got me interested in trying other Clinique moisturizers.

Dermalogica Clean Start Ready, Set, Scrub: This is a mask scrub which is pretty cool. I wish I had more of these packets to help decide if I want to buy it!

Makeup

Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm: This was an alright product, but there's something in it (smelled like peppermint?) that made my eyes sting and water when applying on my undereyes. No bueno.

Benefit Fine-One-One: I think I might have had this sample too long (received in last year's Benefit-themed Topbox) because it kind of hardened on the paper. It still looked nice on, but I'd need to try the full-size to compare textures.

shu uemura Lightbulb Foundation: (Also not pictured because I forgot. I'm good at this!) This was too yellowy for me but it had nice coverage.

Misc.

Crest Whitestrips (1): I've still got five of these left... I don't know if my teeth can handle that!


TOTAL SAMPLES KILLED: 12

We're down to the crunch! I've still got about 32 samples to finish off... eep. If you want to keep track of the coverage, be sure to follow the hashtag #SampleKillah on social media and check out Kalyn Lord's original post! I'll be back here reporting on the 31st!
